HEADSHOTS for the Professional Acting industry

HEADSHOTS for the Professional Acting industry

A great headshot can get you in the door and can either make or break you.

In theatre, film, and television talent are often required to include a headshot in their promo. These headshots are intended to portray you in the best possible light expressing different poses to give an idea of the subject’s range of appearances or expressions. These types of headshots are called “looks”.


With years of experience shooting and directing, its second nature for us to get the best from you. 5 minutes in front of our camera and you will be getting the content you need to get those jobs.

Great headshots should show you as what you look like when you arrive at a casting with no surprises. It should show an honest impression of yourself and give the casting director a good indication of your potential.

THE PHOTO HEADSHOT (Includes free slate shots)

Up to a 3-hour photo-shoot at our Clerkenwell studio and as well as local locations you can shoot up to 5 changes to get the looks you require.

The shoot is relaxed fun and entertaining, however, we don’t have a set number of images shot on the shoot as we believe it’s not the number of images shot during the shoot but quality.

Images are supplied as PDFs direct to your phone or email or where its the most convenient for you to view the PDFs.

Final images are supplied both in colour and Black and White.


We like to follow headshot trends and video is one of those directions we are working with by combining slate shots along with your photoshoot.

The slateshot is a simple introduction to camera shot with each photo set which you can use so casting directors can get a clear look and feel and know how you sound.

They comprise of an up to 30-second look to the camera. It’s a great way to see your headshot move and casting director get a better idea of you. It shows your confidence and character.

4k and HD video is easily send online to clients.

Great self-taped auditions are like talking headshots. Casting directors get a better sense of your personality, character, and talent as well as getting to hear what you sound like.

Our automated autocue and recording system is great fun to use and gets you a high-quality 4k video. Includes full sound and studio lighting.
