Individual Case Study

Meet Tony,

TONY by Yourheadshot.co.uk A good headshot is a valuable investment. Don't underestimate it's power

Tony is a supporting artist in television and feature film productions. Having recently been in Dr Who as a Timelord and part of the BAFTA winning TV show Broadchurch he was keen to get some decent, professional headshots taken. Colleagues recommended he contacted us at Your Headshot.

We had a number of conversations on the telephone about style, what to expect, clothes and props and Tony made a firm booking to come and shoot a series of exceptional images.

We like to shoot as many images as we can whilst you are with us and Tony was no exception. We started with a studio set up against white as seen below

and then we moved to black

where we tried a number of different looks and lighting set ups.

Once we were happy with the studio images we moved outside. Despite Your Headshot being based in a listed building in South Bristol it is an incredibly versatile location. Made from glass and cor-ten steel and given a multi million pound renovation by developers Urban Splash and Ferguson Mann architects we can shoot urban, industrial, country, waterside and of course studio based images all onsite. If we need more extensive green space we can pop outside the complex into the adjacent parkland that has more extensive wooded areas and a very lovely stream/brook/watery thing.

We started in the carpark.

Then we moved onto a walkway

As you can see, we tried different clothes, hats and looks to capture a wide range of looks to meet his requirements.

Once we had finished we set about the regular processing and tweaks given to all our images. We uploaded around 50 images to a private gallery on yourheadshot.co.uk and sent Tony a link with details on how he could view the images. After some advice from friends and input from us he chose his final images (6 are included in the session fee). They were checked over, some final tweaks made and released for download. Tony now has a good collection of images to suit the needs of his profession.

Additional services are available too. Retouching/reworking images is one of those services. Below are some examples of images that have been worked on (at extra cost) to highlight the versatility of our service but also how it can change the look of someone completely.
