"Made me feel at ease"

This was not something I had done before but the photographer was lovely and made me feel at ease. I was worried that the photos would look very staged and somewhat 'cringe' but this was not the case. I would recommend!

FAQs

For a professional actors headshot you should opt for plain colours. Avoid busy patterns or prints as they can be distracting. Also avoid flesh tones too, and instead choose flattering mid tones such as blue, green or purple.

This depends on your look and the type of roles you are casting for. Generally it is advised to go for a more neutral and natural look for your headshots. It may be best to avoid heavy makeup in order to make your headshots more universal.

Our actors headshot prices vary depending on your requirements. Our session fees start from £150 and include a minimum of four images. 

Our specialisation in actor headshots, deep industry knowledge, and extensive experience working with actors set us apart. We stay updated on current casting preferences and trends, ensuring that your headshots make a lasting impression. Our portfolio and positive reviews from other actors testify to our commitment to delivering exceptional results

 

Time to update your actor headshots?

Getting the right headshot photographer in London can be a tough mission with a vast range of options available. As a performer, a professional headshot is crucial to booking castings that will lead to the jobs you want and further your experience as an actor. Vanity Studios, based in London, has many connections to the theatre and film industry and has carried out extensive research as to what casting directors are specifically looking for when they are analysing portfolio applications on Spotlight.

Gone are the days of black and white portraits, as casting directors now need to see your colouring in your headshot images. When an actor comes to Vanity Studios, firstly we establish whether they are predominantly a musical theatre or screen actor as many performers prioritise which area they want to pursue. This can vary the look and feel of the headshot as in musical theatre a heavier make up look is commonly used, whereas in the film industry they commonly prefer more of a nude look, which can be created by our professional make up and hair stylists.

We usually recommend a variety of opposing looks when shooting headshots as having slightly different images for your portfolio will help not only in acting castings but also with commercial bookings. Varying photos will show diversity and create the best shots to get shortlisted for those essential castings. Usually we suggest wearing one dark colour and one light colour; and for girls, we recommend having your hair styled up in one of the headshots. Our professional make up and hair stylists will of course help create this on the day.

Vanity Studios headshot photography packages are excellent value, and as you will see from our gallery, the results are outstanding. Contact our studio today for your specific requirements and help on how to book your session.
