Casting and Headshots Photography for Actors and Actresses in Manchester, North West, UK
Michael Pollard Photographer
I'm fortunate to be recommended by, and work closely with, the top actors' agencies in Manchester, the North West and further afield and because of this I understand the industry and the way it is changing. Photographs are being used to target castings and role types more closely than ever before and the use of on-line portfolios for casting means actors and agents need, and are demanding, more variety of looks. I can help you achieve this simply and effectively by changing clothes, appearance and location during the shoot which will give you a wide variety of look and style, whether the look you're after is simply natural and fresh, contemporary, period, corporate, street....whatever you need. The shoot, however, can be as simple or varied as you want it to be and I'm happy to give any advice you may need to help you get a set of images that look like you (very important!) and work for you.
The shoot is unhurried and relaxed and generally lasts around 2 hours allowing time to change tops, hair or makeup if necessary. Men too can change their look by shaving part way through.
I shoot both outdoors in natural light and in a studio environment to give you the widest variety of images possible.
As many shots as necessary are taken and these are later carefully edited to give you the very best and most useful images. Contact sheets are then emailed to you in both colour and black and white.
£95.00 for a session resulting in at least 75 shots on the contact sheets plus the first 4 selected, finished images supplied as high resolution files to CD in both colour and black and white.
Some actors and agencies require shoots with many more changes of look and potentially more images to CD. For this reason I offer an extended package at £110.00 to include at least 100 shots to contact sheets and the first 6 images to CD.
Cost of additional images to CD : £10.00 per image
Cost of 10" x 8" prints : £10.00 for one-off
I can give you information on repro companies for multiple prints if needed.
Cost of a printed colour set of contact sheets : £10.00
