Headshots for websites, LinkedIn, social media and online dating profile photos: how it works
Whether you need a photograph for work, LinkedIn, your social media accounts or for a more successful online dating profile photo, I’d be glad to help.
I can come to your home or workplace, we can go for a walk outside or you’re welcome to come to my office in Clapham Old Town.
Using natural light gives a lovely flattering effect, but I can also bring studio lights if you prefer. I can bring a pop-up backdrop too, with either a white or black background.
Headshot sessions take around 30 / 45 minutes, and are a fun and relaxed experience.
You’ll receive a password-protected online gallery with a selection of photographs to choose from.
The fee is £195, which includes two high resolution digital files (jpegs), which I can resize for you to any format you require.
I’ll provide you with a set of pointers to help you get the most out of your session, and we’ll discuss what you want from the photographs beforehand.
We collaborate with professional hair & makeup artist Jessica Richardson – she’ll help you look and feel fabulous for your headshot session. Hair & makeup sessions costs an additional £150 for 45 minutes.
I approached Louise (on the recommendation of a friend) to take some professional headshots for my business website (I run a small publishing company with a partner). Louise immediately put me at ease and reassured me. She took enormous care during the shoot, taking over a hundred shots, and experimenting minutely with lighting and positioning.
She had lots of professional tips about posture and so on, which meant I looked my best. It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with Louise. She combines quiet professionalism with personal warmth and a great dry sense of humour.
Once I’d selected my favourites, Louise made a few judicious but subtle adjustments, and the headshots were ready to go up on the website. I can honestly say they’re the nicest photographs I’ve had taken for some years. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Louise”.
I required corporate headshots for both online profiles and for editorial/online content, the requirement being that I have some formal and some more relaxed looking shots.
Louise took all of this into consideration, keeping in mind throughout what I was trying to achieve and portray to the public. Not only that but given I’m a little camera shy and needed some encouragement, Louise made sure the whole process was fun and relaxed. I’d absolutely recommend her to others.”
I needed some corporate headshots for my new job. I was apprehensive and not looking forward to the photoshoot, but Louise put me at ease. After the photoshoot, Louise sent me the photos very quickly and she helped me to pick the best ones. Louise has a great eye for details and she is very conscientious. I am very happy with the photos and I would recommend Louise to anybody who needs corporate portraits. Excellent service for a very affordable price.”
