London Headshot Photographers

If you’re in London, and in need of some headshots, here are our recommendations!

Nick James

Nick James is a photographer for actors. His “mug shots” are beautiful. I love the way Nick uses soft, diffused light, it works great for all skin types and really achieves a natural, effortless look for his clients. Nick comes highly recommended by the top agents in London.

Alan Howard

“I shoot bold, modern, cinematic headshots with an emphasis on character and connection. I capture drama, intensity and warmth.” Alan Howard’s work is unique and he seems to capture actors in a relaxed state, making for very intriguing images.

Pricing: £200 and £300 packages, as well as a £150 package option where you share your session with another actor (which makes for great savings!)

The Headshot Pro

The Headshot Pro is spearheaded by photographer, Craig Greenslade. With over 20 years experience in the field, Craig is one of the best options for headshots in the city. We recently sent along one of our StageMilk coaches and writers to get a session with Craig, and the results were incredible. You can check out below Jack Crumlin’s full review and the final shots. All the photographers on our lists are vetted to make sure that you can book in with confidence.

StageMilk Review (Jack Crumlin): My headshot session was really great! Craig was a real professional and the whole process was seamless. He made the environment for shooting very friendly and relaxed, which allowed me to feel comfortable. The results were great, too. I’m super happy with the shots (as you can see below). We captured several different looks for me and my agent to consider. This is so great when a headshot photographer goes above and beyond! I would definitely recommend particularly for actors early on in their career for some strong options for first headshots.
