“.. I can’t thank Mario enough for the brilliant shoot we had together, they have helped me boost my career having been asked to do modelling work, I have been in music videos, short films and a couple of feature films too. He is polite and friendly, making you feel comfortable and tries to encourage you to do as many different shots as possible, at a reasonable price. Couldn’t have asked for more..”

Why do I need Professional Headshots?
Casting directors and agents will agree on one thing, your headshot needs to be able to stand out over others.
It may not be about your looks in general but the feeling that you transmit from them.
The likelihood is that if directors and agents find your actor headshot engaging, then you will have more chances of being called to their offices for an interview or for an audition.
That is why is so important that you select the right Photographer!
Selecting your Photographer
The best way to find a good headshot photographer is by referral or seeing the photographer’s work for yourself.
If you have friends in the industry or an agent that you trust, ask them whom they would recommend for your actor headshots.
Most photographers display their portfolio directly on their website and you can determine if their style of photography suits your needs.
It is important not to assume that the headshot photographer that charges the most money will give you the best results.Their work may not justify their pricing.
The best indicator to determine the success of a headshot photographer is by reading what other actors and actresses have said about their personal experiences.
Look at the testimonials left by actors.Interact with other actors in forums and ask for advice.
A couple of months ago I had the great pleasure of photographing the newly opened MAUMA restaurant in Tenerife – Canary Islands.
The restaurant is situated in the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife and has an International cuisine on offer.
This is the final marketing material complete with some of the photographs that I took.

Very excited to hear that the actor Ralph Fiennes is in Wimbledon filming the new feature film based on the life of Charles Dickens.
The cast were filming at the amazing Southside House in Wimbledon.
I recently went to the see the Ghost musical in the West End and I have to say that if you haven’t seen it already, it is definitely a must.
The stage is so perfect and cleverly designed.The lighting and special effects by Paul Kieve are stunning.
Siobhan Dillon (Molly) is absolutely amazing, she connects very well with the audience and her vocals are breathtaking.
Samuel Edwards (Sam) is great too, it is his professional debut in the West End and I’m sure we will see more of him in future productions.
Sharon D Clarke (Oda Mae Brown) in my view is the star of the show, her performance is worth every penny..incredible funny and witty.
All in all a great musical with incredible visuals, vocals, great acting and brilliantly funny.
