Connecting you with your audience through dynamic headshot photography that showcases your personality & authentic identity
Inconsistent images across Social media/website?
Not updated your headshot for over 2 years?
Have you changed your appearance recently?
Frustrated you’re not attracting the audience you want?
You’re having a new website built & need up-to-date & authentic images?
You’re a busy professional you don’t have the time to create them for yourself or team?
You have a fear of being in front of the camera, or you don’t like the way you look?
Are you using a holiday photo or using a Selfie for your portfolio image?
Your headshot photograph should be an authentic representation of who you are. It should be up to date and consistent across all your marketing materials and client touch-points.
Your headshot should represent your personal brand so that you’re recognisable as the face of your business. You should be getting noticed and standing out from the competition.
A professional headshot helps you build good connections with your ideal audience. It contributes to your clients getting to know, like and trust you. It’s the image of how you’re known in your industry.
Studies have shown that most people will generally form an opinion about you within just a few seconds of seeing you for the first time. The ‘first impression’ they’ve formed will likely influence any interaction they have with you going forward.
The purpose of a professional, current and on-brand headshot photograph is to deliver that great first impression to your audience.
As a business owner myself, I understand how important a good first impression is to your reputation and how you’re perceived as a professional. So when it comes to attracting your ideal clients, networking or reaching your goals, you want to be seen in the best light possible.
When you’re not used to having a professional portrait the nerves can sometimes kick in. I’d rather take a little longer with your headshots coaching you through your session removing fear and building your confidence to bring out your best of you.
Experienced photographer with many years in the photographic industry as well as being a qualified member of the Guild of Photographers & The Societies of Photographers. Also 15 years in the Police taught me a thing or two about effective communication!
The best way to learn more about a headshot session is to just give me a call for a no-obligation chat where I will be happy to answer any of your questions. In the meantime here are a few frequently asked questions to help you too.
As with a lot of photography services, it all depends on your needs. A headshot session can be as short as 20-30 minutes in the studio to a full day (personal brand headshot session) with multiple locations too.
For someone confident and just needs a few headshots for their social media profiles then a quick session in the studio would be plenty. However, for somebody looking for more variety and options with clothing, styles, lighting and crops then 1-2.5 hours would be a better option. I’d also recommend a longer session especially if you’re nervous and not used to being in front of the camera – This can allow for a bit more time for you to relax and I can help coach you through the session. It’s just as important to me that you enjoy the session as much as the results.
When you start getting into longer sessions then that it’s more about developing your brand, where more lifestyle, working shots and branded stock images are created alongside your headshots to create a “library of visual content” to use across all your marketing and brand touchpoints.
If I had a £1 every time I heard that, I’d be able to give up photography and retire!

I’ve been photographing people professionally for over 11 years and I’ve seen and heard this all before.
Yet what I also know, as a business professional running my own business for over 11 years, is the impact and results in a good headshot will give you.

Airbrushing is a term used for the retouching of photographs before the digital age! Often associated with the ‘cover girl’ magazine whereby a model has been made to look thinner or the smoothing of the skin. Today retouching is more commonly done through computer software such as Photoshop.
I check and edit every photograph that you receive to ensure the highest possible quality. This may include:
Basic retouching doesn’t include manipulation of body shape or removal of permanent features. E.g. Tattoos, birthmarks, scars, etc. This would be charged as an extra service, however would be discussed and agreed upon prior to the shoot or any editing.

In its simplest terms; you should wear what you are most comfortable in!

We also cover this as part of your consultation and planning stage. And although the guidelines are useful, it would still come down to your needs on an individual basis.
