Acting, Corporate & Social Media Headshots

What is a Headshot?

Whether it’s for business or if you are a creative or performer, essentially, it’s an image of your head and shoulders, shot close up, to show you at your best.  The industry standard is for them to be in 8×10″ portrait format and for actors, that’s certainly a requirement for Spotlight. For business though, landscape images are becoming more and more popular.  Beyond that, I like the process to be as creative and as individual  as you are. What matters is that it reflects you.

Predominantly we do headshots for actors and art-performers. However, corporate & Professional portraits for use on websites like Linkedin have become essential now. We’re also happy to shoot them for use on dating websites and Social Media too.

If you’re either a professional actor, a student or an aspiring actor, you will know that your headshot is one of the most vital tools to make your mark in the industry. If you want Casting Directors to notice you or you’re looking for an agent you need a shot that stands out. The key ingredient to a great image is that it has to look like you, but on your very best day.

A successful portrait should say what you want agents, managers and casting directors to know about you. We’re focused on making sure that your shot says what you need it to say and shows you, as you want to be seen.

Why Choose Us

There’s plenty of people out there taking actor’s headshots, especially around Leeds.  The performance arts have really started to take off in Yorkshire & across in Manchester, so it stands to reason that the number of photographers would go up too.

I’ve got years of experience taking headshots for actors and performers.   I  work extensively with Leeds Arts Centre & Screen Yorkshire & several other theatre production companies, photographing productions from casting and rehearsal through to the opening night.  As a trained portrait photographer, I know what angles your face looks it’s best at, the most flattering lighting etc.. But more importantly, experience working with many casting and talent agents over the years has taught me what they want .


We want you to feel as relaxed as possible when we shoot because we want your photographs to look as natural as possible. Headshots can be taken in the studio or outdoors. We can shoot them in our studio in Pontefract, only a stones throw from Leeds, or in an outdoor location of your choice. Even both if you like. That way we can create a few different looks for you. Our package includes one change of outfit. If you’d like more looks, a second session is half-price when booked at the same time.
