Price & Details for Actors' Headshots

Price:

Be photographed in up to 4 different tops for £240
or in 2 tops (still a huge variety of shots) for £180

If you required full-body shots too (for acting purposes. Not modelling shots!), simply add £20 to the price if you're having the 2 top session and £30 for the 4 top session.

Details:

I take a large number of headshots 
The entire shoot (minus any unflattering ones!) will be cropped to 10"x8 
They will be supplied to you in both Colour and Black & White
You can receive them either on cd or directly to your computer via wetransfer.com as [large] High resolution Spotlight-ready jpgs, plus [small] websize jpgs for speedy emailing, Facebook, Twitter, etc 
Depending on my work load, I aim to get them sent to you within 48 hrs 
You will get 3 retouched images of your choice (extra retouching £10 per image)
Please note that prints are not included in the price.

The session:

All sessions are done in my studio in South London on a one-to-one basis in a very relaxed atmosphere 
I use a neutral background which produces a nice clear image and gives good contrast 
Keep your tops as plain and simple as possible 
Avoid large patterns/logos 
Avoid plunging necklines or high roll-necks! 
Please ensure that your tops are clean and ironed 
The lighting I use is like daylight, but more flattering 
Make-up: ladies - keep it to the minimum, gents - please don't wear any! 
The more natural you look, the happier Agents and Casting Directors are

Copied from the "Spotlight" website to help you

As a professional performer you main headshot is vitally important. It must represent who you are. It is your first selling point to get you that audition. Think of your headshot as an investment in your career. 

If a casting professional is unaware of your work, it is the first thing they will see, and first impressions do count! Blurry, pixelated or amateur photography will make you look unprofessional and will put casting directors off! 

Your book photo must be a head and shoulders, portrait shot. Keep your appearance as neutral as possible. Remember, a casting professional wants to see the 'real' you. Wear something simple and avoid props, hats, distracting backgrounds and accessories. Your eyes are your most important feature, so make sure they are as visible as possible. Casting professionals always recommend your make-up should be subtle. The more accurate the photo the better. Your photo should be a true indication of your age and build, there's no point in pretending to be someone you're not. 

Don't Photoshop out wrinkles, don't airbrush, don't use dramatic studio lighting. Glamour photos are fine for a modelling career, but not for an acting portfolio. And make sure your photo is recent. Any photos over 3 years old are more likely to hinder your chances of getting an audition than help.
