HEADSHOT & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
NEAR ST ALBANS, HERTFORDSHIRE

They often say that you have 7 seconds to make your first impression and for the last 9 years I have helped hundreds of individuals do just that with my headshot and portrait photography.

During my time as a headshot and portrait photographer, I have met so many wonderful people from young actors to managing directors. Whatever your profession, the goal is simple, to enable you to be stand out in a digital world.

I always strive to provide my clients with the best images and have won numerous awards for my headshots and portraits, the most prestigious of these is the ‘Photographer’s Bar’ award from The Guild of Photographers, which I have been awarded twice.

I am also recognised as a Craftsman with The Guild of Photographers.

POPULAR QUESTIONS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MY HEADSHOT & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

The pricing for images begins at £45 each, with a reduction in cost per image as the quantity of your purchase increases.

For a short session there might not be time for outfit changes. However, for longer sessions, I recommend bringing 3 or 4 tops to facilitate the creation of a diverse array of looks. Incorporating layers like jackets can also be advantageous in achieving varied styles. You may wish to contemplate the suitability of the clothing for the image you wish to portray and prepare suitable attire.

If you opt for makeup, consider a natural look that complements all your tops. Kindly arrive at the session ready for photography – trust me, I’m not the best with makeup! Remember that authenticity is often appreciated, so wear your usual attire.

Feel free to enhance your makeup for a more striking appearance during the session, along with altering your hairstyle or shaving if desired. For substantial changes like shaving, it might be best to plan them during a longer session. Your comfort is a priority.

The session fee compensates for the time spent in the studio, while the image pricing encompasses the editing process.

Both the session fee and image purchases contribute directly to the foundation, supporting our efforts in assisting others.

Naturally, situations can arise where you may need to adjust the date or time of your headshot session. You’re welcome to make changes as necessary, as long as you give a minimum of 48 hours notice.

Within your confirmation email, you’ll find a button that links to an availability calendar, allowing you to easily reschedule your session.

Unforeseen circumstances can arise leading to the need for session cancellation. Should you find it necessary to cancel, kindly offer as much notice as you can. If notice is provided with over 48 hours advance the session fee will be refunded.

However, in instances where less than 48 hours notice is given, the session fee unfortunately cannot be refunded.

As you have the opportunity to preview your photographs in real-time during the session, this situation has not yet arisen. Throughout your session, you can actively contribute to directing the desired appearance of your images.

You can trust that there are no concealed motives or sales pressure behind my approach. My objective is to deliver high-caliber images with remarkable affordability.

I am firmly committed to the belief that everyone, irrespective of their career stage, should have the opportunity to access outstanding photography. If obtaining just one image from the session is within your means, that is absolutely acceptable.

 

 

Absolutely. At the start of every session, we’ll engage in a conversation about the intended purpose of the image and its potential applications. This includes discussing whether you lean towards a more intense and edgy aesthetic or a softer one.

I’ll actively invite you to communicate your inclinations for particular styles, whether it’s a preference for vibrant and light tones or a preference for a darker, more evocative atmosphere. 

I tailor the visual essence of each shoot to resonate with your character and to present you in the manner that aligns with your desired representation.

Typically, the standard timeframe for retouching your ordered images is approximately five business days, excluding weekends. Please be aware that during peak periods, it might extend a little longer. It’s important to note that each image undergoes meticulous hand-editing, a process that cannot be hurried.

Feel free to bring a friend along if you would prefer. A touch of camaraderie and shared humor can yield fantastic outcomes for your images. If your friend is interested in having their own photographs taken, they’ll need to schedule their own session. However, we can coordinate to have the two sessions aligned if desired.
