We start with a chat over a tea where you can let me know a bit about yourself, where your career is currently and how you want it to progress. You can show me old headshots if you wish and freshen up.
As we shoot we work towards a full portfolio based on your range as an actor using simple casting suggestions or words that evoke a feeling. This direction not only helps you to relax but also gives you something to focus on. We can then achieve a range of images such as gritty, warm, motherly, strong, urban etc. I have been told that this way of shooting has completely changed how actors experience their session allowing you to fully become a part of the shoot.
I shoot using natural light both indoor and outdoors in a private location which allows for a variety of unique backgrounds that will reflect and support your diversity.
We allow for several changes of carefully selected clothing based on casting types. We can also look at different hair and make-up options and if you wish to shave during etc.
We review the images as we go so you are always taking an active part in the shoot and can see how we are progressing.
Each shoot lasts as long as is necessary to achieve what we both want but usually up to 2 hours for my standard shoot and up to 3 hours for my creative portfolio shoot.
