London's leading headshot photographer
Welcome to my site. I photograph more actors headshots in London for the theatrical industry than any other photographer. In addition to actors headshots
I also photograph children for most of the leading theatrical schools
A headshot should be as unique as you are. As one of the most experienced headshot photographers in the country my aim is to craft you a headshot that will sell you the actor. Over the past 20 years I have photographed in many different styles and right now I am developing a lighting style that is reminiscent of the way that film and television is lit now. I have always thought that the best headshots of any era has always reflected the lighting styles of films of that generation. I hope that many of my pictures have that visual empathy.

How important is your casting shot?
Your casting shot is the single most important factor in getting you into the right casting. How important? One agent replied "How important is oxygen to the human race".When I asked agents whether they could get their client into an audition without a decent picture one replied "not if they weren't a name" another said "Impossible!". A good casting shot hopes to get you through the first stage of the audition process. The consensus of opinion was that without a decent headshot your chances of getting into the right casting are negligible.

A casting shot should be changed at least every 2 years.
PLEASE BRING LOTS OF TOPS. NECKLINES ARE IMPORTANT.
COLOR COLOR COLOR. Casting directors are wanting to see shots in color. Don't just bring black or white tops.

Thanks John... once again, fab photos... if an actor is not "known" then all
the casting director has to go on is the photo and... if it's interesting
enough and says something about the actor...following up with the show
reel... so a photo that "speaks" is of primary importance... Carol Paul Agent ALW Associates
I thought you might like to know that after a long spell with no castings I have had 2 in the last 2 weeks. One for a guest lead in a CBBC episode - a formidable witch like character.
And another for Emmerdale - a bad tempered old Granny. So yes, the conversations we had ring true!....Ruth Evans
'Since I had my head shots done with John I've not only had more auditions and booked lots of new work but the quality of the work I'm getting seen for has gone up.'....John Fitzpatrick
