About Photographer

Hey, I'm Sam

I'm a Yorkshire based headshot and theatre photographer. I trained as an actor, and worked across the industry as an actor, vocalist, and musician before stepping behind the camera.

I've been taking headshots for 3 years now working with actors, vocalists, musicians, dancers and presenters. My headshots are natural, and flattering - designed to show you in your best light and get you in that audition room. I like to keep the sessions relaxed, whilst walking you through what you need to do to get a variety of different looks that can be submitted for different roles and mediums; be it theatre, film & TV, or commercials.


Where do the sessions take place?

In Lund Park, Keighley. Street parking is available. I do have a portable studio set-up, and can discuss block bookings or travelling to be quoted upon request. I cannot guarentee that images will be consistent to those found in my portfolio at locations I am not familiar with.

How will the images be supplied?

Images are supplied in both colour and black & white via an online gallery, where you can view and download your images.

Do you take 3/4 length / full-body length / dancers' portfolio photos?

Yes, these are included in the Portfolio session.

Payment & Cancellation

A £25 deposit secures your booking, with the remaining balance due on the day of the session. This will not be refunded in the event on cancellation.

If you need to reschedule, I require 72 hours notice to do so.

The great British weather

If the weather forecast is really poor, I will contact you asking if you would like to reschedule. This could be in the days coming up to your shoot, or even the morning of, so please let me know if you are travelling from afar.

Can I get my images quicker? 

Fast-track (48 hour) editing is available for £15 per shot.

    Sam has a great mix of being professional but also getting to know you as a person during your shoot. This means you end up with great headshots that suit you as a person/ performer. I felt comfortable and confident throughout the shoot and he gave me helpful hints to get the best pictures. I was over the moon with the final product and even ended up buying extra edited images.

    Such an amazing experience and result with these photos. This was my first headshot experience and I would really recommend using Sam for headshots, he makes you feel really comfortable and really helps you get the best out of your different shots. Making each look work and helping when it came to getting key facial expressions and being on the same page when I explained the finished look I wanted for each different shot. I'm over the moon with the shots and the price also was very good which was a bonus.

    Sam is very skilled at making his headshot sessions relaxed and enjoyable as well as professional. A lot of emphasis was put on getting to know the actor and what they want from their shots. Sam is very knowledgeable about the industry, what a casting director is looking for and how best to get this through tips and tricks of the trade. I was thrilled with my headshots and the overall experience, would highly recommend to anyone.

    My headshots taken by Sam Chipman were my first ever headshots so naturally I was unsure what to expect. Sam offered a discounted price, plenty of availability to book in for and was great at staying in contact before the photography session. During the session itself, Sam was very highly skilled at producing professional shots with lots of different moods, while putting me at ease with his friendly personality. The finished products were amazing and I purchased a few extra to the 3 that were included in the package. I am so happy with the service I have received and know that whatever chance I have at getting some acting work, these headshots are perfect to help me along the way.
