If you're an actor, performer or presenter you will need regular professional Spotlight headshots for casting portfolios,both online and to email to agents and prospective employers as part of your showreel. Your portrait image could be the most important factor of the audition process, so use a professional like me and get the very best results at an affordable price.
Spotlight portraits need to be current and show you in your best light. The industry recommends updating your portrait every two years and of course if there has been any radical appearence changes, for example hair colour change, beards, hair cuts etc. it needs to be done straight away.
I will work with you to create a selection of headshots and promotional images that are perfect for your casting portfolios and use my experience to provide a varied selection of poses and styles. I have a mobile studio and don't charge any travelling expenses if you are in Merseyside. Each shoot typically takes an hour and you will be provided with a selection of images online, where you can pick six favourites which will be post-processed and cropped for final versions. I also include black and white versions. The delivery can be via CDR or online system, allowing you to invite others to view and use your images. These are provided at a high resolution, for traditional printing, for example comp cards and promo materials and also low res versions, ideal for online usage and emailing to people.
Most recent commission was from actor Peter ;
"Had a very satisfying photo shoot with David, punctual, proffessional and put me at ease straight away, I couldn't have asked for more and the results speak for themselves, excellent pictures! Will be calling again, thank you."

I have completed dozens of Spotlight style portrait shoots for actors and actresses, performers and creatives, so for the best Spotlight portraits, contact me for availabilty and prices here please. I'm more than happy to hook up for a coffee and give you a free, no obligation consultation - we can talk over ideas, what to wear and I can show some more examples.
Of course, I don't just do head and shoulders photos, I'm happy producing awesome corporate business portraits as well, check my portfiolio via the link.

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa
A lot of my recent commissions have been as a construction photographer in Merseyside and beyond. I've worked for both development companies and directly for manufacturers as their products are being installed on site.
"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
