Actors Headshots Sydney with Karina Russell

Karina Russell actually contacted me regarding getting her new actor headshots after she was so impressed with the headshots I did for her Mum, Bronwyn.

I shoot regularly in both Sydney and on the Central Coast, and for this particular shoot we met up in Umina Beach, not far from Gosford.

Karina is starring in a new production and her director wanted something a little more light-hearted and natural than her previous portraits, and this is very much my style. I aim to produce portraits that are natural and realistic of you, because at the end of the day, a casting director wants to see what they are going to get and put their own ideas forward, rather than having an particular look pushed on them.

If you are interested in getting some new headshots and you want a clean, fresh look, give me a call or click the button...

Actors Headshots Central Coast with Bronwyn Russell

Bronwyn Russell

Bronwyn Russell is the director of Umina based Dance and Performing Arts studio, Dancin' Mates.

After receiving her Advanced Diploma at the Australian Ballet School, Bronwyn performed professionally both on stage and on screen; including with the Australian Ballet Company, Opera Australia, The Phantom of the Opera and Vienna Festival Ballet. Her successful career took her around the world including London, New York, Vienna, as well as in Australia.

She and her family were then struck by the beauty and lifestyle of the NSW Central Coast, and together they set up their dance school in Umina Beach.

Actors Headshots

Having been persuaded by her family, all of whom are working actors or dancers, to get back into performance roles, she decided it was time to look for an agent again. At this point Bronwyn contacted me about some new actors headshots.

When I met Bronwyn she was quick to tell me that she wanted her portraits to be natural and not try to make her something she is not. She thought that she would be going for the 'Mum' type roles and as such the head shots should be appropriate to this.

Of course this was not a problem. We worked our way round a few different locations on a cold, windy day. I was able to harness a little of that wind power to add a little oomph to her hair on occasion. I also used the natural light to keep the shots looking real.

Since then, Bronwyn's daughter Karina has also enlisted me for her headshots, which you can see here.

I think the images look great and I think Bronwyn should get plenty of acting work!

Actors Headshots Sydney with Tamaryn Hurly

Here is my most recent Actors Headshots photo shoot in Sydney, with Cruise Performer Tamaryn Hurly.

Tamaryn's brief was an interesting one. She needed the obvious headshots for her performance work, and came to me for my fresh and modern style. However, she also needed images that the Cruise Ship she will be singing on can use to promote her show.

We started out with the basics to warm up and build her confidence around the alleyways of Surry Hills in Sydney, and then started to vamp it up a little with her flowing and formal dresses and working those fashion poses!

Tamaryn loved the resulting pictures, as do I. She told me that she had such a hard task narrowing her selection down as there were so many images she loved. I'm happy to say I agree. 

Best of luck with your new show Tam!

Actors Headshots Central Coast: Sophia Stratton

Here is my actors headshots shoot with Actress Sophia Stratton. We shot them in Woy Woy on the NSW Central Coast.

When I lived in the UK, I used to do a lot of Actor’s and Corporate Headshots and Portraits. This actually formed probably the backbone of my business. However, when I moved to Australia back in 2009 and started to build my photography business from the ground up again, it for some reason didn’t occur to me to start with the head shots side of things. I’m not entirely sure why.

I plan to change all that now though, and want to bring a fresh, modern LA style to the Sydney and Central Coast Corporate and Performer Portrait.

When it comes to Actors, Sydney is just a stone’s throw away from where I live on the Central Coast, along with the fabulous theatre that we have on the coast. I like to keep abreast of fashions and trends within the industry and for that LA is the place to look. What we are seeing currently is a movement away from the studio look and onto the streets for a more naturally lit, edgy look. We have already sourced and experimented with a few locations close to public transport links for ease of getting to us, and we are all set to go.
