Look the part with professional actor headshots photographed in our fully-equipped studio based in Coventry city centre.
Headshots are also brilliant for solo portraiture, musicians, singers, dancers etc. With our selection of backdrops and lighting equipment/modifiers, this allows you to create variety in your images.
Images may be used as promotional headshots, on websites, social media, press, porfolios and dating profiles.
If you’d prefer images that are a bit more natural and dynamic then location photography is a great option,
I accept all sorts of headshot and portraiture enquiries. If you have a headshot photography request that isn’t covered on this page, please get in touch to discuss.
“Karen was fantastic. She applies an impressive artistic eye at each stage of the process, from shooting on location all the way to the final retouching. Although I was initially anxious in the photoshoot, she put me at ease straight away and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I am extremely pleased with the results” – Ed Blundell

Location photography provides visual pop to images. This is a great option for an actor headshot to stand out from the crowd. Areas with graffiti or art are wonderful, such as the Custard Factory in Birmingham. Parks and gardens are a great option due to the varied colour palette of flowers and trees etc.
I also scout new location for as required (extra fee applies), so if you have particular style or theme you are looking for, please get in touch.
Images are usually shot in the early morning between 8:00am – 11am in the Spring and Summer and 9:30am – 12:30pm in the Autumn and Winter to take advantage of the softer light. Overcast days are ideal for photography, as the sky then becomes like a giant softbox, which offers beautiful flattering light.
Prices are based upon 2 miles from Leamington Spa (also for any shooting based in Birmingham’s Custard Factory), but I do travel all over the UK for an extra fee.
Up to 1 1/2 hours of location photography
2 outfit changes
4 retouched hi-res digital images (delivered via Dropbox)

Preparing a few days in advance of your session will make a big difference to your final images. Well moisturised skin and the use of Chapstick a few days in advance works wonders. This is especially true if you have a darker skin type, as it helps with lighting. Well groomed hair is important so bring your brush and products along.
Ironing your clothing is also helpful, as cameras these days have a high level of detail.
The aim of image retouching is to maintain a high standard of realism and includes the following:
Mild skin smoothing
Facial contouring (enhancing highlights and shadows)
Removal of minor blemishes, spots, stray hairs (on skin)
Reduction of wrinkles/under eye circles.
If reduction of red/blotchy skin or wrinkle removal are required, the cost is usually £7.50 & up per photo. Please get in touch for a quote.
I’m able to arrange a make-up artist for £60 & up. For advanced make-up techniques, such as body paint, please get in touch for a quote.
