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.

Lessons in Photography – Miley Cyrus

Entertainment photographer brighton sussex miley cyrus 01

I’ve worked as a photographer for many years (portraits, headshots, entertainment) but I still learn stuff; unfortunately sometimes I learn stuff ‘The Hard Way’, and this is a lesson I learned not so long ago.

I was commissioned to be the unit stills photographer for the filming of Miley Cyrus performing as Hannah Montana at a theatre in London. I had arrived early on the train from Brighton, searched out the best locations and positions to photograph from, and got some general photos of the set, the film crews working, the stage and lighting etc, before the performance started.

I then nipped outside to photograph the front of the theatre with the giant neon ‘Hannah Montana Live’ sign. Unfortunately there were some tourists stood in front of the theatre and kinda spoiling my shot – two teenage girls and their mother. They were mucking around doing funny poses and larking about while the mother took some photos with her phone. I just stood and waiting till they left and then took a photo of the theatre and sign with no people on it.

Back inside they were setting up for the sound and light check and who came on stage but one of the teenage girls who’d been larking about outside – Miley Cyrus. Of course I had never seen here before and had no idea what she looked like. Stupid me!

The lesson – do your research beforehand. No matter what the job is you must research it, so you can at the VERY LEAST recognise the person who you will be photographing – and especially if they are a celebrity, a musician, a singer, an actor – someone who as an entertainment photographer, you or I should be aware of!

Afterwards the company who had commissioned me asked if I had any good ‘candid’ shots of Miley, perhaps goofing around………Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

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.

Another headshot of Susan Gilmour Bailey – Brighton Photographers

Another photograph of the wonderful Canadian opera singer Susan Gilmour Bailey who came for her photography portrait session in my Brighton studio last week. Love this look she has here.

This shot was taken with my Nikon D3s and 70-200mm lens, as is pretty much all of my headshot photography. I used a nice little lighting set-up with four main studio flashes and various reflectors.
