OVERVIEW

Hello, I'm Jessica & I am a photographer specialising in performance Headshots & Portraits. 

Having trained in the performance industry myself I completely understand how important your headshot is, & how expensive & daunting it can sometimes be. This is why I make sure my sessions are fun, laid back & reasonably priced. I try to capture the true essence of YOU. We will chat about casting types & I might steer you in a particular direction if your casting type is very strong, or if you are wanting something very particular, but generally I focus on just capturing a good photo of you, the you that will walk through the audition door. I will never ask you to be anything other than yourself during the shoot & strive to capture the most natural shots. Most actors actually hate having their photograh taken so I try & make them treat it more like an acting exercise rather than a ‘photo-shoot’. Clients are always amazed by how informal & efficient the session is - which means they always leave me feeling very relaxed! Also laughing is very important, just for general life, so I try to make you laugh as much as possible.

LOCATION

For the past four years I have been photographing under a tunnel along the canal in Lapworth. As lovely as it was, I now want to expand so I can be more flexible in the types of imagery I produce, & not have to rely on the weather; so I have recently invested in my own indoor / outdoor studio in Bromsgrove which officially opened January 2019. I say indoor / outdoor as it has the luxury of both. I mainly use natural light for headshots on the porch of the studio which is exactly how I used the tunnel outside. For the headshot & portrait session I use a mixture of natural & soft artificial light. So you really do have the best of both worlds! My location is incredibly close to the motorway & only seven minutes away from Bromsgrove train station which has direct links to Birmingham New Street. Full location details are given out upon booking.
