Affordable, high quality headshots
for actors, dancers, musicians, business professionals...


We all know the importance of a good headshot. A professional, accurate, up to date headshot is essential for creating that all important first impression.


For just £150...'ll get an unlimited session (we'll take photos until you're happy), contact sheets, four digital images in both colour and black and white and high resolution images on a disc. You can come to me (I'm based in Walton-On-Thames, Surrey) or I can travel to Zones 1 or 2. I'm also available for Hampshire based shoots. I'm flexible and can arrange a time and place to suit you (including evenings and weekends).

I'm sure you'll agree that's a pretty good deal!

Make sure you follow me on twitter or on my new Facebook page for special deals!

See for yourself...

I take great care with our photos making sure your headshots are of the highest quality. I also digitally retouch each of your chosen four shots for free and make sure you still look like you, but you at your very best. Have a flick through my recent work on the left.

Your session



When you choose me, you'll receive a welcome pack detailing what to bring, suggestions of what to wear and everything you'll need to ensure you have the perfect headshot session.


I have a beautiful home studio with really soft continuous lighting and a choice of black or white backdrops. I also love natural light, so if the weather permits it we'll go outside for some shots as well. Of course if you'd rather have all outdoor or all studio shots that's fine too. Outdoor headshots also give me the flexibility to come to a local park or green space near you where we can take the photographs.


Your session is unlimited. I don't charge by the hour or hurry you along... I want you to be happy, comfortable and, most importantly, not rushed.


During the session I take hundreds of photos to ensure that you have the choice to select that perfect set. Once the session is over, I'll put together a selection of your strongest shots into a contact sheet and e-mail it to you to select your favourite four photographs. These photographs will then be colour corrected, digitally retouched and posted to you on a CD in the highest resolution. I'll also send you lower resolution copies of images via e-mail which are ideal for emailing to agents/casting the final directors, dropping into your CV or uploading to Spotlight and Casting Call Pro.


Want more than four shots? No problem, just let me know and I will add them to your order. Additional retouched photographs are charged at £15 each, and unlike other photographers, I'll give you both the colour and black and white versions of your photos for no extra charge. I keep a back up of your shoot, so you can even order additional shots at a later date.

About Me



I am a freelance photographer, specializing in actors headshots and production stills. I have a base just outside of London (Walton on Thames, Surrey) and a base near Southampton, so offer sessions in both areas. I'm also a trained actress and I am still very much working in the field. I've worked in pretty much every kind of media from radio drama, TV and feature film to commercials and voiceovers.

I've always had a very strong interest in photography and was forever borrowing my dad's camera as a child (sorry dad!). After university, I got my first DSLR camera and began to take the photography more seriously.

I decided it would be interesting to be on the other side of the camera for a change, and so started to move into doing production stills on commercial shoots. As a stills photographer I enjoyed working with actors and capturing their emotions so much, that I decided to develop my portrait skills and set myself up as a headshot photographer.

I also do a bit of freelance work as a casting assistant. Through working in a busy casting office I've seen a lot of headshots. And I mean A LOT. It's given me a unique insight into how pictures come across from a casting perspective, and given me ideas of what works, what stands out and what really doesn't work in a headshot.

I tend to shoot outdoors as I believe that natural lighting is best for headshots, and use reflectors to really make the eyes stand out - the key to a really good headshot. Getting headshots done can be a daunting experience, especially if you are new to the industry and it is very important that you feel comfortable enough with your photographer to discuss your requirements so that you get a portfolio that is tailored to your needs.

My sessions are relaxed, friendly and I promise you will enjoy yourself!
