Musical Theatre Actress Rosie Zeidler Headshots

I just love these new headshot portraits from my photoshoot of the lovely Rosie, who is a student of musical theatre, and I photographed her at her home near Brighton Sussex.

Rosie wanted a variety of headshot looks from her photoshoot, to help with her application to study drama and musical theatre at university. I set up a small location photographic studio inside, and we also braved the cold to get some photographs in the garden (with a nice bit of low winter sun helping us out a bit).

Rosie was totally professional, took brilliant directions and I’m sure she will love her career choice.

Here are just 4 from the photoshoot.

Portrait of Stage Combat Actor – Brighton Photographer

Jon Harrison, a specialist martial arts and stage combat actor, came down from London to have his actor’s Spotlight headshots taken in my Brighton studio. Jon brought with him smallswords, rapiers, daggers and all kinds of things I’d never seen before, and it was a really interesting photoshoot.

Jon has studied acting, martial arts and stage combat and wanted a varied selection of shots for Spotlight and his new agent.

It was a fascinating photoshoot and he came away with some amazing headshot portraits, both conventional and more edgy. I have started to use a Nikon D800 for portrait headshots, and I’m really impressed with the resolution from its 36 MP sensor, and the wide tonal range available. Simply stunning. Here is the D800 combined with the 70-200 2.8 lens

So here are just a few shots from Jon’s portfolio Spotlight photoshoot.

Brighton Headshot Portraits – Actor Inti Conde

Inti Conde is a young actor and singer, and he came into my Brighton photography studio last week to get his Spotlight headshot portraits updated.

Inti had just returned from a season singing in an Opera in France and wants to get more acting work, and he realises how important a decent professional Spotlight headshot is to get castings. He’s such a lovely guy and great in front of the camera, and I wish him all the best for what will be a great future in the business.

Here are three from the photo session.

Drama and Theatre Students – Big Discounts on Headshots

As a Brighton photographer I am a huge believer in improving the standards of headshot and portrait photography provided to Spotlight, agents and casting directors. I know most students have real problems finding the money to get a professional headshot but c’mon guys this is your future you are investing in here!

Sian by Brighton headshot and casting photographers David Myers

You wouldn’t think twice about spending decent money on a guitar or an amp or a violin if you studied music? Fender Telecaster – £800 anyone? £1500? Anyway – up to the end of September 2013 I am offering Drama and Theatre-studies Students big discounts on my usual headshot photoshoot prices so you can experience how it is to get a professional photographer to photograph you.

As long as you can show some proof of theatre/drama studies you can have my usual headshot sessions, with all my hints and tips on how to engage with the camera, together with 5 fully retouched images as digital files for the astonishingly delectable price of £105 (normally the price starts at £165). If there are 2 of you for the same session then it’s a crazy £80 each. 3 of you then its £70 each. I might add a little-biddy petrol cost onto the price if I’m travelling out of the Brighton/Hove area.

Nia Coleman Photography, Brighton Studio

Here are a few shots from an excellent photoshoot session in my Brighton studio yesterday with the soprano singer Nia Coleman. The totally delightful Nia is about to embark on a postgraduate degree in music (opera) and wanted some images to promote herself to agents, Spotlight and through her own website.

Nia was a brilliant person to work with and had loads of great ideas, and was totally professional. I’m sure she’ll go far.

Archie Steele Photo Headshot Brighton Studio Session

A good headshot session this morning in my Brighton studio with the aspiring teenage actor Archie Steele.

I’ve cropped these tighter for this blog posting but for Spotlight or for an agency I would leave the shot a little wider as is the norm in the UK (at least in the States the agencies realise how arty and intense a tighter crop can be).

Well done Archie, you took brilliant direction and you’ve come away with quite a variety of looks for your new agency.
