Headshot Photography

Home/Headshot Photography
“I had a professional actor headshot session with ShotBox Studios and I was delighted with my final photos. After getting to know what I needed through an in-depth consulation, the photographer guided me through the shoot and delivered fantastic results. My photographer had extensive experience working with actors and was able to offer direction throughout the shoot to put me at my ease and achieve great images. I would definitely recommend ShotBox Studios to others looking for actor headshot photography.”
Enzo Iantosca, Actor
“Actors headshots are often long, boring and tiring, but that’s not the case when Aimee is behind the camera. She brings fantastic direction that is short sweet and feels natural to the actor rather than trying to bend their heads round their shoulder to get a shot. I think Aimee’s headshots are the best I have had so far and I wouldn’t hesitate in using her again. Class ‘A’ service.”
Louis Murrall
“Aimee made the effort from the second I booked my headshot session to understand what I was wanting from my pictures. I wasn’t made to feel like just another number like other headshot photographers have done in the past. The session itself was easy going yet I knew I was in professional hands. As a result I have headshots that I am now ready to show the world! I got more from my pictures than I had expected and for a lot less than I would have paid a photographer in London. Thank you Aimee!” 
Reynah Oppall, Actress
