Keep your actor headshots up to date
If you’re in the acting profession you need to update your actor headshots regularly in order to get noticed by casting directors. I’m based in Derby and can offer a professional photo-shoot at competitive rates. These photos were produced for Ava Scott who was an actor with Derby based 1623 Theatre Company and is now at acting school in Los Angeles. If you book a headshot photo session with me I will spend at least an hour photographing you in different styles, creating a variety of looks so that you have plenty of images to choose from. My basic package includes the photoshoot and up to ten final images edited to show you at your best. I offer a friendly service for aspiring or established actors in the Derby area, either in a studio or on location.
