Headshots East Midlands

East Midlands based headshots photographer

Professional photography for commercial portraits and actors’ headshots covering the East Midlands.

I can photograph in any location of your choice, with my portable studio. This has allowed me to photograph portraits from the middle of a field to the Royal Albert Hall. I cover all areas of Leicestershire, Derby and Nottingham and most areas of the UK.

Since 2009, I’ve been commissioned to photograph various national actors and actresses in the theatre, artists, dancers and numerous businesspeople. I am here to help show who you are and what you’d like to represent.

Studio Day: Drench

So, Isoelegant said to me, “Let’s do a shoot with water”. Maybe she was thinking of next to a river or lake. I thought, let’s throw buckets of water over each other. We set up in the studio, with a complicated mechanism involving squirrels & rope to release the water. After a bit, we decided to simplified things by getting Adrian involved.

It was only after a few goes that Adrian had the idea to warm up the water…

Dance: Paloma Styles

I photographed dancer Paloma in Leicester Guildhall. Here she introduces herself:

Paloma Styles is a Leicester dance artist, whose true guilty pleasure could only be, R. Kelly – Trapped in the Closet. Alongside wishing there were more rap operas in the world, she also dances with Fuelled Dance Theatre, and studies for an MFA at DMU. She thoroughly enjoys the interdisciplinary mash up of ideas, like a 33-chapter rap opera – who would have thought!

Thanks to the Guildhall, Leicester for the use of their space.

Attenborough Arts New Gallery Opening

Attenborough Arts, part of The University of Leicester, has a new gallery, and I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the opening.

The late Richard Attenborough was the founding patron, who handed the patronage to his son Michael. Richard’s brother, Sir David Attenborough formally opened the new gallery.

Performance In The Pub

I thought I’d begin this series of blogs with a review of some of the things I’ve photographed in 2013.

I’ve been lucky enough to photograph Hannah Nicklin‘s series of theatre and performance art showcases: Performance In The Pub. There were three, this year, which, sadly, is the last of them. They were most enjoyable, and to me, a performance art novice, revealing of a whole new art form.
