  • About
    Hi there, I'm Steve Lawton and I've been shooting actors headshots for 20 years.

    I love my job and whether you're a star, working actor, or student, I aim to produce headshots that you will be completely happy with, that sells you and captures the very qualities that makes you unique.

    I love incorporating the ever changing seasonal light to create compelling, revealing and totally natural images. Unlike most studio based photographers who are limited to the same basic set-ups, my images are always unique on the day. My aim is to produce both a great head shot and a beautiful picture in its own right which shares the secret of your inner self, connecting and drawing the viewer in. A great headshot is like a great close up, you keep coming back to it; engaging, open, fascinating but above all truthful.

    I'm recommended by many of the country's most established talent agents including Curtis Brown, United Agents, Jorg Betts Associates, Independent Talent Group, Cole Kitchenn, Global Artists, Conway van Gelder Grant, and Bronia Buchanan Associates, shooting clients working in Film, Theatre, TV, Musical Theatre and The West End.

    I'm also delighted to be the actors headshot photographer of choice for some of the country's top drama schools including RADA, Central, GSA, Guildhall, Italia Conti, Birmingham School of Acting, Arts Ed, Laine Theatre Arts, and the Drama Centre.

    I'd be delighted to hear from you so please feel free to contact me with any queries.

    It was my first time having my headshots taken and I'm not particularly comfortable having my photo taken, but Steve was fantastic with me from start to finish making it all feel very natural and even enjoyable! He's a great guy and a better photographer and I'll recommend him to anyone who'll listen.

    I loved my session with Steve. He made me feel comfortable during the shoot, making sure that I felt that I had all the time I needed to feel happy with the shots taken. He gave me brilliant advice and; above all for me; had time to chat and have a laugh with me, taking the time to get to know me and my personality. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat. Thanks Steve

    Steve was great, very warm and friendly and put me at ease straight away. I like his approach.. in terms of the fact that he measures each shot and still shoots on film as oppose to digital where they can often just snap away and get the odd decent shot... the location is also brilliant- gothic and wonderfully lit and atmospheric... I can't recommend highly enough...
