Headshots for Actors | Singers | Dancers | Presenters

Whatever your creative field, whether you are a seasoned artist or a complete newcomer, and no matter how talented you are, your headshot is absolutely vital in terms of getting yourself noticed; it's the first thing that people see when they look at your profile in talent directories such as Spotlight, Mandy or Starnow, and it's the most important tool your agent has to get you auditions for castings.

But it's not the 'creativity' of the photography that's going to help you stand out from the crowd; good lighting, composition and styling are clearly all important, but a great headshot, first and foremost, is one that's a true reflection of who you are as a person. Of course, for actors especially, it's helpful to have images in your portfolio that represent your range of character types for different types of castings, but Casting Directors also want to get a sense of the 'real you' as well as the characters you can play and your technical skills.

Getting a great headshot is a collaborative process, and during our time together we'll work together to create a set of images that not only show who you are, but who you are at your very best! With a combination of your creativity and my direction, we'll explore a range of poses and expressions, with multiple outfit and backdrop changes, until we build a selection of shots that we both agree are a truly distinctive and compelling representation of who you are.

Client Testimonials


As a live performer I am no stranger to being in front of the camera, but I didn’t fully understand the difference between being vaguely aware of someone taking action shots and the up close and personal experience of taking headshots. I made my fears very clear to David at the very beginning of the shoot and he, sensing my concerns, made me feel extremely comfortable. From making me laugh, to playing The Blues, my experience with Shoot Me now was unforgettable. As for the pictures: WOW! Thank you David.
— Sharon Rose, Musical Theatre Artist
I’m usually very anxious about having my photo taken, but David made me feel completely at ease, consulting me throughout the process so that we could get the best portrait possible. The result was not just a couple of choices, but many high-quality options for my publicity and book jacket. Thank you David!
— Rebecca J. Whitney, Author
I had the pleasure of being shot by David and I’m very happy with my experience. David does a great job of making you feel at ease when shooting, while giving you clear instruction on how to best connect with the camera. If you’re interested in great quality headshots, that are returned to you looking amazing straight after the shoot, then get in contact with David.
— Matthew Campbell, Actor
I had such a good shoot with David recently. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked through the door, and the shoot itself was fun and relaxed. We shot so many different styles of headshots and I am really happy with the ones I have chosen. From the studio in his house to the outside options, he really knows his stuff, and takes the time to make the lighting absolutely perfect to suit the client. Highly recommend to anybody looking to get some new shots done!
— Andy Rose, Actor
From the moment I entered the studio, David put me at ease, making the shoot greatly relaxing. It was a real pleasure working with a photographer with so much enthusiasm and drive. By the end of the shoot, David had managed to capture such a variety of moods, it was very difficult to choose my favourites! I would highly recommend David and wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again in the future. Thank you!
— Mia Longman, Actress
From the moment I set foot in David Green’s studio I felt 100% at ease. His calm and friendly approach allows the client to portray the best versions of themselves for the camera.

I am absolutely thrilled with the range and variety of styles we managed to shoot in the time allocated and it was hard to decide which photos I liked the most from the proofs he sent because the were all so wonderful. I highly recommend Shoot Me Now’s high quality photography service.
— Dale Adams, Actor
David Is a man in demand! Spent an afternoon session with him for my portfolio / Spotlight headshots and he was exemplary. He made what can often be a tedious/nerve wracking/stale affair into an upbeat, encouraging and enlightening experience. He played with the various technical elements, really trying to see what would make my look work best.

We chatted and he kept me at ease in his home studio (which is delightfully presented and comfortable with an insane view of the seafront) and I felt like he was doing his best to ensure that he would get the best work. We’re in the final stages of editing the final shots and I’ve enjoyed the experience wholeheartedly. I will most certainly be returning!
— Adam Hoskins, Musical Theatre Artist
From the moment I arrived at the shoot I was made to feel relaxed and welcomed. David ensured that we both knew what was wanted from the shoot. I felt I was able to express exactly what I wanted, which has resulted in pictures that I am extremely happy with. I was constantly shown the pictures so I knew what was going on and I feel this creates a brilliant end product as people on both sides of the camera are on the same page. I would not hesitate to recommend Shoot Me Now to anyone I know for either professional or personal shots. The only issue was the pictures were so good it was incredibly difficult to chose which ones I wanted! A thoroughly enjoyable experience with a fantastic end product.
— Beth Symons, Actress
Much as I love filming, I don’t enjoy being photographed so wasn’t looking forward to my head-shot session. From the moment David opened the door, I relaxed and within a short time I knew that he ‘got’ who I was and how best to capture me. The session was really enjoyable and I was included in the process throughout so I could also judge what worked best. It was such a positive experience and I’m very happy with the results.
— Pat Garrett, Actress
