Professional Headshot Photos


If you’re looking for a fresh, flattering headshot for a dynamic online presence you can be proud of – a presence that helps get you more ideal clients or land that dream job – then you’re in the right place!

Located in Epsom, Surrey, I create professional headshots in my relaxed home-studio, beautiful outdoor settings, or if you’d prefer, your place of work. Feel uncomfortable in front of the camera? Don’t worry. I’ll give you tips on how to prepare for, relax and feel confident during their shoot. Plus the shoot itself is very relaxed and friendly.

The Experience

With a professional headshot, I keep the process as straightforward as possible to take the pressure off you. We have a quick chat on the phone to establish your goals for the session and I'll take care of the rest. I'll give you ideas for the perfect location (for environmental headshots), what to wear and how to get the most from your headshot session.

I have a relaxed and friendly working style, and the focus really is about making you feel comfortable and getting natural shots of you. I work with my clients, directing them as needed to find positions that feel comfortable in. There is no awkward or forced posing, I simply build on what you feel most comfortable doing. You may prefer to stand, sit or perch on a stool, I just work around you.

What to Consider

Your headshot should work for your market and expresses your personality and strengths. Think about how you want to come across. You want to look like ‘you’ but in the way you want ‘others’ to see you in your role.

You'll need to consider:

  • What the images are for? E.g. LinkedIn, new website
  • What type of impression you’d like to portray? E.g. friendly, corporate
  • What you'll wear and how many different looks you need
  • Whether you'd prefer a studio shoot or an outdoor shoot
  • How many you need and when you need them for.

I'll send you some info to help you prepare for your headshot session and if you have any ideas or images in mind, feel free to share them with me – images are always great to help me visualise what you’re after.

Your Professional Headshot in 4 Simple Steps

Fill out the form and I’ll be in touch for a quick chat on the phone through your requirements.

Once you’re happy with the details, I'll find a date that works well with your schedule. To secure the date you'll need to pay for the headshot session in advance. You’ll receive an invoice for the required amount which can be paid by debit / credit card or by BACS transfer.

Turn up and enjoy the shoot. The shoot will either be in the studio (Albert Road, Epsom) or in our agreed location. The shoot will be 30-mins, 45 mins or 60 mins depending on which package you have picked.

You will receive a link to a private, online gallery within 1 – 2 weeks* of the session. Your gallery will feature a selection of your best images – from which you can easily choose and compare favourites.

Once you have decided on your favourites, they will be retouched in Photoshop to give them a professional finish. All tweaks are very subtle and designed to bring out the best in your images.

*If you need your images sooner, please let me know at the time of booking.

Simple!

FAQs

Surrey headshot photographer

My studio is located at my home in Epsom KT17 (close to Epsom College). There is free parking outside but check the signs carefully as some of the street is permit-holders only.

Studio shoot: Bring a hairbrush, make-up for touch-ups and if you’re changing outfits, clean, ironed clothes on hangars. There is a private, changing area with a full length mirror where you can check your appearance and change outfits.

Outdoor shoot: Bring a mirror, hairbrush and clothing that you can change into easily in a public area. e.g. jacket or scarf that can be added or removed easily.

Your headshot should work for your market and expresses your personality and strengths. Think about how you want to come across. You want to look like ‘you’ but in the way you want ‘others’ to see you in your role.

Most of my sessions take place in parks local to Epsom such as Nonsuch Park, Sutton and Banstead Woods, Chipstead, however, I'm happy to travel to your place of work and further afield too. Travel up to 10 miles is included in my prices.

Additional costs may be incurred (e.g. congestion charge & ultra low emission zone) for travel into London.

I edit your headshots in Photoshop to bring the best in them. I bring out the natural colours and remove stray hairs, temporary blemishes and any distracting objects in the background to ensure you are the main focus.

All retouching is very subtle and natural looking – you will look like you at your best!

Heavy retouching e.g. tattoo removal, adding hair, softening deep creases can also be offered and is available for £50 per hour.

Don’t worry you're not alone, most of us feel the same way. Here are a few helpful tips:

Firstly, try to visualise the photo shoot going really well and imagine how good you’ll feel when you can upload your striking headshot as your new profile image.

Secondly, take a look at my blog post How to Prepare for your ProfessionalHeadshot in 7 Easy Steps which includes ideas for getting prepared beforehand and combating nerves on the day of / during the shoot.

Thirdly, just so you know, my studio environment is very relaxed and so am I. I take LOTS of thoughtful shots (up to 100 in minutes) so there will be plenty of images to choose from.

And finally, if there’s anything specific about the photo session or the end results that you feel concerned about, we can discuss this before the session to put your mind at rest.

Yes absolutely! Please contact me with details of what you’re looking for and I’ll happily provide a quote.

Yes I am! If you need a headshot for your website then don't worry, I can still photograph you outside. We'll wait for a warm-ish day and head to a park. Please click here to view my Covid Policy for full details.
