About Photographer

I am a freelance photographer based in Chiswick, London, with a focus towards actor's headshots, portraiture and promotional photographs.

I really love to shoot using natural light as I feel this can really make your photos stand out and bring a unique look to each snap.

Having trained and worked as an actor myself, I understand how to get the best out of those in training, recent graduates, or professionals already in the business looking to freshen up their profiles.

As someone who isn't a fan of having their photograph taken, I completely understand the pain that some actors feel when staring into the lens. But please don't worry, there's no pressure to get it right from the start. I like to keep the sessions relaxed and playful in order to capture something creative and intriguing. We'll have a laugh, get to know each other a bit and I have a few tips and tricks that'll ease you into your shoot, capturing the best of your personality.

    Michael made the whole process really easy. During the session he was very friendly and chatty making sure that I was comfortable in front of the camera. He also worked to ensure that I had a strong range of photos showing a variety of different looks.

    Michael created a caring, yet professional atmosphere from the moment we began the session & was genuinely interested about me & what I wanted to get from the session; always suggesting varying looks that would benefit my photographs yet creating a proffessional, yet relaxing connection between us. Serious recommendation for anyone searching for that great, natural headshot, with the extra of an enjoyable experience thrown in!

    I had a really good headshot session with Michael; he was able to put me at ease and therefore managed to get the best headshots from the day. Michael is extremely lovely affable guy who knows how to get the best out of the camera and you. I felt 2 hours was the right amount of time to get a series of really good photos to choose from and I am very happy with the 5 headshots I have received for such a reasonable price!

    Thank you, Michael.

    Michael put me at ease as soon as we met. I had never had headshots taken before, so his friendly personality and genuine demeanour was a joy to work with and be around. He helped me hugely with positions and looks, allowed me to have multiple changes of clothes and really cared about what I required out of the shoot. The photos he sent were of a fantastiic quality and certainly exceeded my expectations of what I would receive from the session. I would 100% recommend Michael and will certainly be using him again if I need more headshots!

    I am so pleased with my headshots from Michael - I've always found having my picture taken awkward at best and uncomfortable at worst! However with Michael it was completely different. With his friendly, chatty, and genuinely caring approach I instantly felt put at ease and relaxed. The session was plenty of time to experiment with different positions and looks, and I changed outfit several times. The proofs I was sent completely blew me away - I was spoilt for choice! Super happy with the entire experience, and love my final edited headshots. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

    I've being an actor for quite a while now and I think that was the only time, a photographer that doesn't know me has managed to take photos that look like me and they represent me in every aspect. Michael was very quick in figuring out my USP and made sure I had enough materrial to choose from. I felt comfortable and relaxed and Michael created an honest and fun atmosphere while shooting. You know when they say:  Your Headshot should be 'you' walking into an audition/casting room on your best day Michael makes sure of that! I'll definitely be going back!
