Headshots for actors, models, profiles


It seems we all need profile pictures these days – they’re everywhere, and if you are a professional then it’s an absolute must. Head-shots and profile pictures aren’t just simple portraits, they are a subject all on their own for us photographers.

Special care has to be taken in setting the correct “mood” and look for your head-shot, and this happens through your discussion with us, as to what your requirements are. For example, if you’re looking for a profile picture for you Linkedin profile, you might want to wear a suit, logo shirt or something more related to your business. Actor pictures may want to set a different mood and go for something a little more dramatic – maybe black and white might be an option you’d like to consider too.

You don’t have to be a professional though to get a nice head-shot portrait. What about changing that tired, old camera phone image you use as your profile picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram? And what about CV’s? I receive CV’s all the time, whether by email or post, and I would say that 90% of them have a portrait picture, and although it’s not necessarily a requirement, it’s always nice to put a face to the document.

With a professional portrait you will be the talk of all your friends, followers, potential clients and castings, so give me a call and we can have a chat about what you require and how I can help you out.

Needing a professionally produced photograph of myself for business reasons, I searched the net and found Simon James Williams Photography and am delighted I did.

His studio can be found Tucked away in behind old Aqueduct Street Mill in Preston.

Simon is the consummate professional. He put me at my ease instantly; it was pleasure to be in his company. He took loads of shots and adjusted the lighting (and me) until we were both satisfied – he fully engages you in the process. The resulting photographs far exceeded my expectations, they were great.

He does not charge the earth either. The photos were emailed to me for final selection within hours. I cannot praise Simon enough and heartily recommend him.
