Actor Head Shots in Leicester

Professional head shots are absolutely essential for sending to a casting director.  Well composed, flattering images are so important for creating that ‘first impression’.   A professional, photographic portfolio will help you to stand out from the crowd and catch the eye of the casting director.

I offer a very informal, relaxed photography session at my studio in Hinckley, Leicestershire and always ensure my clients feel at ease during the session.   This photo shoot will last around 40 minutes and will include a mixture of photographs taken in the studio with studio lighting,  and also natural light portraits around the Atkins Building, where I am located. The Atkins Building is a beautiful, light and airy building with some amazing little hidden away areas that are just perfect for natural light photography. We will shoot a variety of poses, whilst ensuring that you are relaxed and at ease.  Actor head shots are available for actors, musicians, singers and all entertainers.

Whether you are an actor, singer, entertainer or are in business, it is important that you have images that stand out and that your photographs are as unique as you are.  Remember, a good casting shot is important to get you through that first stage of the audition process.  A great head shot is absolutely essential for your business too – LinkedIn, your CV, your website…

The standard head shot photography session will include the time and talent to photograph you and also includes 6 digital files, with usage rights.  This fee for the photography session is £150.  Other options are available for longer sessions which include more digital images.

Please call me on 01455 233224 if you require actor head shots and we can discuss your requirements in more detail and book a mutually convenient day and time to work around your schedule.   For actor head shots in Leicester – why go anywhere else?

Wedding Photography Hothorpe Hall

The lovely Jane and Steve were married at Hothorpe Hall and I am so glad I was there to capture their beautiful wedding day.  Despite the fact that the weather was unkind to us, we still managed to grab 5 minutes outside near the front of the hall to get a few images of the ‘just married’  Mr and Mrs.  This was a small, intimate wedding with just family and a few close friends and it was a really lovely day.  If you are looking for a lovely Leicestershire wedding venue with really helpful staff why not visit the Hothorpe Hall website here

Thank you Mr and Mrs Freer, for making me so very welcome on your special day.

BEE Happy… xx

Wedding Venues Leicestershire, Northamptonshire & Derbyshire

I have photographed weddings at some beautiful venues across the midlands and each wedding venue has been memorable to me and of course for the couples I have photographed.  If you are getting married at any of these wedding venues in the East Midlands, please get in touch.  Venues I have photographed at include:-

Kilworth House  – A truly stunning location in Kilworth, Leicestershire.  I also spent my wedding night at this amazing hotel a number of years ago.  Oh, and the afternoon tea at Kilworth House is fabulous.  The perfect gift for mum for Mother’s Day?  Buy her a gift voucher to enjoy afternoon tea in the Orangery at this beautiful hotel.  A real treat.

Hothorpe Hall  – A beautiful manor house in Theddingworth near Lutterworth Leicestershire.  This venue has it’s own chapel and the couple I photographed at this venue had a civil ceremony in Hotthorpe Hall followed by a blessing in the beautiful chapel.

Guildhall Leicester – One of the best preserved timber halls in the country, The Guildhall Leicester is over 600 years old.  With a beautiful courtyard for photography afterwards, it is a really lovely venue for a wedding.  Situated right in the centre of Leicester, it’s a wonderful location for a city wedding.

Hampton Manor,  Located Hampton in Arden, near Solihull, Birmingham, Hampton Manor is a really beautiful 19th century Manor House.  Cosy and  intimate with beautiful grounds.  I was lucky enough to have snow for one of the weddings I photographed here.  It’s very close to Birmingham so very central.

Draycote Hotel, Thurlaston nr. Rugby  – We had a fun post wedding shoot with Samantha and Garry on the golf course in the grounds of this hotel.  A buggy ride to the lake was well worth it.  Peaceful, with beautiful views across the Lake.

Fawsley Hall, Northamtonshire – Now, this is one of my favourite venues and I have photographed a number of weddings at Fawsley Hall.   It’s surrounded by open countryside and hills and the views are just stunning (perfect for your wedding day photography).  Fawsley Hall has also recently added the Grayshott Studio Spa.  Perfect…

The City Rooms, Leicester –  The most amazing city centre wedding venue.  A Grade I Georgian listed banqueting hall built in 1792, but only recently restored to its former glory.  The Ballroom at The City Rooms is just beautiful.  Large, airy and very classic.  You really do need to visit this lovely venue if a city wedding appeals to you.  The added bonus is that this venue is privately owned and the team at The City Rooms are very lovely to work with.

Coombe Abbey, Binley, Coventry – Originally a 12th century abbey, Coombe Abbey is set within 500 acres of parkland which overlooks a moat house and lake.  There are endless stunning backdrops to this hotel, for your wedding day photography both in and around the venue.

Ansty Hall, Ansty, Warwickshire – Breathtaking scenery and 8 acres of beautiful gardens at this lovely venue and very friendly, helpful staff too.

Brownsover Hall – A grade II listed gothic mansion. Very cosy and intimate venue with the added bonus of stunning gardens and just a little walk in the grounds leads you to a really pretty bridge for some wedding day photography.  Situated just on the edge of Rugby, you would not even know that this little gem of a venue was there… Do visit this venue and you will fall in love with it.  I have photographed both summer and winter weddings at this venue, so if you want a wedding day to take advantage of some beautiful grounds, or if you are planning a winter wedding and want log fires and a cosy atmosphere, then check out Brownsover Hall.


Walton Hall, nr Stratford – Breathtaking views across the lake and gardens, Walton Hall is another beautiful venue.  Chrystal chandeliers, oak fireplaces and antiques.  And beautiful grounds too.  Very near Warwick and Stratford-Upon-Avon.  Lovely

Wethele Manor Farm – A lovely house, set in 250 acres very close to Leamington Spa.  This house has a really warm, welcoming feeling and is perfect for smaller weddings.  Family run and very friendly.  I loved this wedding venue.

Shearsby Bath –  Located in Shearsby, Leicesershire, Shearsby Bath is set in the Leicestershire countryside and has a fantastic wedding marque in the garden, along with a pretty fountain which is perfect for some romantic, evening photography.

Sketchley Grange – Located about 5 minutes from my house, so obviously a favourite venue of mine.  Sketchley Grange has just been extended and they have added a new wing to the building.  Lovely venue.

The Royal Arms, Sutton Cheney – Nestled in the Leicestershire and Warwickshire border, The Royal Arms is a really sweet, family friendly venue.  Again, lovely, helpful staff at this little country restaurant.  The marquee at this venue is really lovely and opens out onto large gardens and rolling countryside.

Scalford Hall – 3 miles north of Melton Mowbray, Scalford Hall is a truly lovely venue.  Stunning grounds and you can have exclusive use to this venue.   I was very impressed with Scalford Hall.

Noseley Hall – Located in Billesdon, Leicestershire, Noseley Hall has its own 13th centry chapel in the grounds. Just one word. Wow!

Rothley Court Hotel – An ancient manor house, Rothley Court has its own 11th century chapel, beautiful manicured gardens and a beautiful brook.  A really lovely venue.  Another wedding booked for this lovely venue in 2012.

Bosworth Hall – Again, just a short drive from home, so always a favourite venue for me.   Bosworth Hall is surrounded by 11 acres of garden and woods.  The little village of Market Bosworth is a short walk from this hotel and it’s really worth a visit.

Newton Park Hotel, – Located in Newton Solney, this hotel is an Italian style country manor and sits in 8 acres of private grounds.  Just 7 miles from Derby this venue can accomodate up to 180 guests.
