Rebecca Knowles. Actors Headshot Photographer in the East Midlands

I have been a photographer now for over a decade, but I have been specialising in actors headshots for around five years. After previously giving many different genres of photography a go, headshots really are a natural progression, as I adore photographing faces!

My actors headshot sessions are relaxed and unhurried and I will take as long as required to ensure you get the looks you require. The feedback I get most often is how I put people at ease. I really want you to enjoy your session as much as you possibly can and get shots that really work for you!

Some clients ask for outdoor only headshots. Some prefer studio only. But if there is no preference I will shoot a mixture. In my experience each session takes about two hours on average.

My actors headshot sessions are now taken in north Northamptonshire. I am based between Market Harborough and Lutterworth only 15 minutes from Rugby off the  M6 / A14

The following images are a selection of the locations that I used regularly from my previous base of Leamington Spa I still go back occasionally to shoot in Jephson Gardens so please let me know if you prefer the following style of shoot and I can meet you in Leamington Spa.

When clients arrive we discuss hair and wardrobe and plan each look for each location or background. Shots are reviewed on the back of the camera or on the iPad at each stage of the shoot and  I put together this page to help clients prepare for the session. But sometimes clients know exactly what they want. It’s always interesting to see what people bring with them and listen to their ideas and acting history.

Please get in touch to arrange your actors headshot session. I am really flexible regarding times. I can shoot evenings if required and occasional weekends. I request a deposit to secure the date but this is refundable if the shoot is cancelled within a reasonable amount of time.

Thanks for reading and I hope to photograph your actors headshots soon.
