“Very Very Pleased ”

Written on: 08/02/2018 by J Derrington

I have had a few headshot sessions and photoshoots before and I hate having my picture taken. I was put immediately at ease and given slight directions to help change stance and also the thought process for each photo. The pictures themselves are of high quality (even before editing) and in terms of value for money, I would say that for photos of this quality and the quantity of images that you can get afterwards, is phenomenally good value. 

I can’t wait for 2 years down the line when I will need new ones. Thanks!


“A pleasure to work with”

I contacted Rory for an Actors Headshot Session and I was not disappointed. Rory was extremely pleasant and welcoming . As for the session itself I couldn’t have felt more comfortable about my shots. He kept me visually updated throughout the shoot with how they were turning out so that we could adjust and tweak things to get the final shots I was looking for!

Dominic Pace Actor Los Angeles Headshots

Actor Dominic Pace, has an incredible facial profile. Dominic booked a character actor’s headshots session at the Los Angeles Photography Studio in Burbank. Often casted as the villain or tough guy, Dominic opted for character shots, assuming various expressions to relay his casting profile.

 

Amazing job. Keeps the artist in motion so you stay loose. Highly recommended.

Brent Spiner Portrait Sitting #LA #Photographer

Brent-Spiner6Many may not know, that despite living in my home town of Liverpool and having my studio in the city, I work both Nationally and Internationally. Actor Brent Spiner, who best known for his portrayal of the android Lieutenant Commander Data in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. Sat for a portrait session in Los Angeles last month. It was wonderful to meet Brent, he is a very talented actor. I recently had chance to watch ‘Out at Sea‘ staring Spiner as the Cruise Director Gil Godwyn, I recommend you take a look. The session lasted around an hour and we worked through several looks, I directed Brent to assume expressive poses, both pensive and thought provoking. Brent is a natural in front of the camera, and in such a short time we created some wonderful portraits.

 

All portraits where photographed with the Mamiya Leaf Credo 40Mamiya Sekor Af 110mm F2.8 Ls D Lensthe best Fixed Prime Portrait Lens I’ve ever used. I’m looking forward to returning to Los Angeles, where I will be holding two Portrait Photography Courses in Studio City June 2015.
