Actors Headshots in Greater Manchester

Let’s get you booked in!

As a working actor, that’s what you want to hear, right? Being able to choose between roles, selecting only the ones you’re really excited about.  Your professional actors headshot is what helps you get there. It takes you from being a face in a pile, to getting that key audition in front of the casting director.

What does your actors headshot say about you?

You wouldn’t put a selfie from a night out on linkedin – but actors often make similar mistakes when applying for roles. If you’re applying for a light-hearted happy role – the last thing a casting director would want to see is a moody expression in your headshot. It doesn’t give off the vibe that you’re the right fit for the job. I’m here to guide you through the process of capturing the perfect portrait for the role in question.

Beat the bland.

Your personality is what sells, and that should come through in your actors headshot. We will work together to capture expressions and emotions that showcase your casting types, allowing you to submit headshots that match the role you’re applying for.

Choose your outfit, take a seat, and let’s get some photos!

When you book a session with me, you’re investing in your most important asset – yourself.  My actors headshot sessions take place at my light and airy studio in a beautiful Victorian cotton mill in Stockport, Manchester

I know it can be hard sitting in front of a camera, so over the course of our session I will coach you through the process. Angles, expression, position, clothing, etc. Together we’ll be able to capture images that truely show your range and variety.

We’ll take regular breaks to review the images on a big screen, seeing which angles and expressions work best for you. That way we can focus on your best sides, creating photographs that do you justice.

There’s time for multiple outfit changes, so you can have different looks to suit the roles you cast for. Each session also comes with a wardrobe consultation over zoom if you need it, and I’ll send helpful pages with general clothing guidelines.

Your new secret weapon.

Once the shoot is over, we’ll sit down together and go through the photos. You can decide which ones you want to buy, and these will be professionally retouched.

I was tired of uninspired photographs of myself taken at work, so decided to hire a photographer. I was very impressed at Paul's website and quickly decided to book in with him. I was not disappointed. He was very pleasant, polite, chatty and immediately put me at ease and made the experience enjoyable. I was provided with tons of photos to choose from and ended up with 3 instead of the intended 2 as it was impossible to choose! I would recommend him highly. I have replaced all of my work/website photos with Paul's images.

Paul made me feel super comfortable and had such a great focus on what I wanted from the headshots. My end result was more than I could have asked for and I've already recommended him to a few of my acting friends who are established in the industry. He was also best money value for the quality of photos by a long way! Definitely recommend 🙂

I had some actors headshots taken a month ago at Pauls studio in Vernon mill. The studio itself was very pleasant and modern with an airy feel. The whole photo shoot experience was very positive. Paul was extremely friendly, chatty and welcoming, and made me feel at ease. He talked me through the whole process very well. He was very professional and helpful, and happily gave input in choosing outfits during the shoot as it was my first time so i was a little clueless. We went through the images as we went along. The turnaround time for the images was very quick and the selection process was easy to navigate. The final images were of high quality and very natural. Would highly recommend.

I had a really positive and collaborative experience on my photo session with Paul. I needed some headshots and he didn't disappoint. He's a true professional and knows how to get the best results! I highly recommend him, he's very down to earth and makes you feel comfortable with him whilst putting you at ease with the camera.

I needed some photos for my job/linked in etc and arranged via Paul. He was quick to respond, and I was soon booked in - he made the experience really relaxed and put me at ease when despite the fact I hate having my photo taken! Really happy with the output and would have no hesitation in recommending him!

Absolutely fantastic experience. Paul made me feel completely at ease straight away and the whole shoot was easy and enjoyable. I will definitely be going back to get more headshots in the future.
