Photographer Recommendations

Hi everyone,

I am looking to get my first pro acting headshots done (my sister is too). I have loads of modelling shoot pics but need something industry standard. Any recommendations?

Brilliant London-based Photographers please!

Also looking to get onto Spotlight. I have commercial speaking credits and loads of experience but not the credits that qualify unfortunately! Any tips?

Thanks so much

Hi Eve-Yasmine, I can recommend Nicholas Dawkes Photography for headshots. Nic is based in West London and offers a very relaxed and enjoyable session, during which he takes the time to find out a bit about you and what you want from your shots. He is also great at getting a range of different character shots from you and will advise you on choice of outfits, etc. which is helpful if it's your first acting headshots session.

Hi Eve-Yasmine,

I haven't had my headshot's done with him, but I love the look of IVANWEISS.LONDON. Check out his Insta as his Headshots are next level!

I recently went to Nick James who I found to be really professional, helpful and fun to be photographed by.

Hope you find someone who is a good fit for you.

I can highly recommend Akash at SurrealShot Media. His studio is based in Notting Hill, and I have had the best headshots done with him recently. I'm 46 years old now, so that's no mean feat at my age!!
