ALL NEW L.A. SESSIONS!

If you're an actor or artist based in Los Angeles you can now get your headshots done at my new studio in Atwater Village, in East Los Angeles.

The studio is set in an old converted cinema with great natural light and easy access off the 5 Freeway and Glendale blvd. We have a dedicated changing area, WIFI and there's also fridge full of iced beverages to keep you fresh during the session! I always shoot both studio and daylight to give you a solid range of looks to suit both theatrical and commercial markets and always happy to tailor a session to your needs.

For 2018 I'm back and forth from London to Los Angeles, but please check out my availability on my calendar or just email me. I usually respond within 24hrs.

Session info:

Most sessions last between 2 - 4 hours depending on your session package and I usually shoot around 400-500 images per session. On a usual studio day I will shoot three clients in a day and I'm lucky to get great California light all day at the studio. You can pick your session times on my calendar.

After your session your photos are uploaded as Online Proofs. This is your very own personal web page with your full session to view and organise your images. This is a great tool for also for busy agents and casting directors to view your images. 

After you have chosen your favourite images to be retouched, you receive everything on a download. Your retouched images are saved at the highest resolution and are ready for printing. Your download also includes ALL the session images. Your session images are NOT retouched and NOT suitable for printing, but perfectly fine for reference or social media use. I would recommend retouching for all the images that you choose to use for publicity and printing. Turnaround is usually 7 days for all your photos.

Hair and Make-Up:

I cannot stress enough the importance of getting a MUA when getting your headshots done in Los Angeles. The market here is VERY competitive and you need to be one-step ahead of the pack. Guys can sometimes get away with it, but on the whole EVERYONE should have some professional MUA look over them before going in front of the studio lights.

You get your own dedicated make-up / changing area with hangers and clothing steamer, but PLEASE iron your clothes before your arrive.

  • 3 looks = $175
