Professional Headshots that get you noticed

What is a Headshot? 

 

A head shot or headshot is a modern (usually digital) portrait in which the focus is on the person. The term is applied usually for professional profile images on social media. These images are also used on online dating profiles, ‘about us’ pages or corporate websites.  Promotional pictures of actors, models, and authors are also commonplace online. 

We offer both Natural and studio lit commercial and theatrical headshots in our Liverpool Studio for actors, actresses, presenters and all types of performers & business professionals. We are fortunate with our studio at the Secret Warehouse that we are able to set up several backdrops at the same time, meaning we are able to work pretty quickly and without pausing during your session.

What’s the difference between a Headshot and a Portrait ? 
 
Whilst the terms are used interchangeably, there are differences. In the easiest of terms, a professional headshot is a type of portrait. A Professional headshot is a tightly cropped photo of the face, from the shoulders up, with the subject ‘camera aware’ and looking right into the lens. The aim of this type of picture is to get you noticed. A portrait is essentially any image where the subject is aware of the camera even if they are not looking directly at it.  
What are the options?
Even though we can tailor all of our services, sometimes its easier to select an ‘off the shelf’ option.
Therefore, we have 3 Professional Headshot packages available. 

We usually take between 100 and 400 images with a quick review is available during the studio session as we go along.
These are then uploaded to a private online gallery allowing you to then choose your final images. These are then edited ensuring we get the very best from each image selected, according to the purpose for which the image was taken. Your final images are then emailed across via a secure download link.
Packages available include black and white options, full colour, studio shoots or outside. We are able to amend or customise each of our services to ensure they are tailored to your needs wherever possible.
We pride ourselves not only on being able to help you choose what to wear, but also on how to pose to get the best results.
They say that an image speaks a thousand words, and when it comes to giving that right first impression – a fantastic headshot, speaks for itself.
Why go to Leon Brittton Photography for your headshots?

We understand there are many other Liverpool Photographers out there offering a professional headshot service, many of them fantastic at what they do, each offering exemplary images to their clients.

Here are a couple of reasons why we may be worth considering when looking at Leon Britton Photography to provide your professional headshots:

          – Our spacious studio / shooting space is located within the Secret Warehouse, Liverpool L20

          – There is plenty of ‘free’ street parking available nearby

          – Local transport links and the nearest train station (Bank Hall) are only a few minutes walk away

          – For each headshot session we set up a minimum of 5 different indoor background options, at the same time

          – Multiple and mobile lighting options in studio mean we can go from scene to scene with no delay

          – Our changing room is well lit and adjacent to the studio allowing quick and easy costume changes if required

          – The Studio shooting area is covered by CCTV allowing peace of mind at all times for all parties

          – Due to Covid-19 in line with current guidelines we have in place all required policies and procedures for compliance

Can images be retouched or edited?

The simple answer is YES although the extent of our work is entirely dependent on both the subject and the purpose of your images.

Retouching may include:  

Stray / Flying hair fixing, Eye bags removal, Skin spots, Acne, Scars, Mole removal, Teeth whitening, Eye enhancement, Removal of pimples and wrinkles, Body/Face reshaping, Skin smoothing
 
With all our images we undertake minor skin retouching, natural tone adjustment and colour correction. The general rule usually adopted is that if a blemish or imperfection will not be visible in six months, then we “fix it” during the edit
 
Are unretouched or unedited images available?
 
We take our time ensuring our images meet the high standards and expectations of our clients, especially when our name is attached to it. Handing out unretouched images could potentially mean these are later edited in a style inconsistent or inferior to our own process, and as such we only provide edited work.

Make the right choice for your actors headshots with our inventive, professional, relaxed sessions creating the very best in Actors , Performers and Business Headshots.


For some actors and professionals, having their headshot captured has the potential to be an extremely nerve-racking experience. Most actors, performers and professionals are used to moving on stage and screen, before a camera or an audience. Sometimes though, being in front of a stills camera is a whole new experience.


As soon as you arrive for your headshot session at our Liverpool Studio, we will have an informal chat about what you’re looking to achieve and the type of images you are looking for, allowing plenty of time for us to work together on creating your headshots. After a few test shots, we then get started working with various backgrounds, lighting and locations to give you a variety of choice. This gives you the opportunity to see how I work and what works best for you.
Clothing and hairstyles can be changed whenever you wish within your session. During the shoot I will share some of the images as we go along, to give an idea of what is going on. Throughout the shoot, we will aim to get as many different looks as we can, with different clothes, different hairstyles, styles, characters and emotions.
