Book Your Photoshoot

Hi there!  Thank you for checking out my photography and your interest in booking a shoot with me. I want you to leave our shoot with a set of images that you will love and to give you an experience you won’t forget. A photoshoot should always be fun, relaxed and enjoyable, no matter if you are a professional or if it is your first time in front of a camera. It is my job to make you feel relaxed and comfortable…. because when you feel good, you will look good.

I cater to most types of portraiture photography, but I specialise in Modelling Portfolios and Actors Headshots You don’t have to be a model to book a photoshoot. Nobody needs a reason or excuse to have some beautiful images of themselves. If you think you will be too nervous to do a shoot, you can see how a typical shoot works and you can get some basic photoshoot tips. Here is a short behind the scenes video of my shoot with Miss Ireland 2012 Rebecca Maguire

Heavy  or smokey eye make-up is not required for headshots as a headshot is about your personality and ability to great a look. A natural look is best for them as that way it your headshots reflects how you really look in person. For headshots, you can arrive with the hair and make-up that you are able to do your self. If you were going to a casting, you would do your own hair and make-up anyway, so this way your headshots really reflects on how you look in person. On the same note, retouching is kept to a minimum for headshots.
