Individual images are £45 (2 would be £90, etc) or we offer bundles that offer greater discounts. 5 is the same price as 4 (£180) and 10 is the same price as 7 (£315). With the 10 image package we also include B&W versions of all your chosen images (saving a total of £160). For a full explanation of our actor headshot pricing click here
To make the most out of your session have a think about the parts you could be cast as and bring clothes suitable for each part. We ask for you to bring at least 6-7 different tops (or many more) with you so we can create a wide range of different looks. These should be in different colours (not just the drama school black t-shirt) and necklines. Jackets and layers also work really well. For more advice on what to wear – click here.
Arrive for the session ready to be photographed. Take your time applying make up to make it as good as possible and keep it natural. Unless you always wear it, avoid fake tan as it can look too much. Remember, casting directors want to see the real you!
During the session you are more than welcome to add to your make up for a more dramatic look, change your hair or even shave (this is often better in an double session though). For more help on how to prepare for your actor headshot session – click here
Within a couple of days of your shoot, we will send you an online gallery of all the best images (typically 250+)
From there, you can create favourite lists, share with your agent, friends, etc. and whittle the collection down to the ones you want to order.
From the gallery, you choose the package that matches the amount you want and simply order and pay. We will then edit the images and get them back in a new gallery.
We ask for a deposit at the time of booking to confirm your session and make sure people turn up.
We give you a coupon code when we send you the gallery of images which deducts £45 from anything you spend e.g if you wanted 5 images from the session which is £180, £45 would be deducted from this meaning £135 would be left to pay.
Should you cancel your session for any reason then providing you’ve given us 48 hours notice we will refund your deposit.
Yes. Providing you give us at least 48 hours notice you can change your session as many times as you like. There is a button in your confirmation email that will take you to an availability calendar so you can reschedule it.
We work really hard to make sure that you will like them. We talk to you about what you’re looking for, show you lots of them during the session and try to capture as much variety as possible.
However if you don’t want to buy any you don’t have to. We will either offer you a free re-shoot or refund your deposit. There really is no catch.
There really is no catch and no pressure to buy. We simply want to offer actors and performers the best headshots at an amazing price. Want to see what others think? Click HERE to read some of the hundreds of 5 Star reviews we have received.
We believe that all actors and performers whatever stage in their career they are at should be able to get high quality headshots. If you can only afford 1 image from the session then that’s absolutely fine.
Absolutely. At the start of every session we will chat about the parts you would like to be cast in (e.g. do you like more dramatic, grittier roles or are you more best friend / musical theatre.
You are more than welcome to say if you prefer any particular style (light and bright or dark and moody). Even though our sessions are scheduled back to back (which is why we can afford to offer the pricing we do), every session is individual.
We tailor the looks around you, portraying your character and how you would like to be seen.
All of our actor headshots are photographed in one of our studios. That way we can control the lighting to create different feels to the headshots. This enables us to really focus on capturing your character and that certain something that will get you more castings.
It also means we don’t have to worry about the English weather, where to get changed or people staring at us during sessions.
Once you have ordered your images our standard turnaround time to retouching them is approximately 5 working days. This doesn’t include weekends and may be slightly longer if we’re particularly busy.
Every image is hand edited by us so not something that we can rush.
If you need them urgently or for a specific date it may be worth including our priority editing option when you book or when you order.
With this we try to upload the unedited ones for you to choose from as soon as possible and we retouch your final ones by the next working day.
any questions? Just ask and we will be happy to help.
Whatever the questions, we love to help. From a simple query to booking actor headshots for an entire drama school, we will hopefully have the answers.
Simply call us on 07810 004451 – Helen is always happy to chat. Alternatively, fill out this form and we will get back to you ASAP.
