I am a UK based photographer dedicated to getting you the perfect image. I love taking headshots (which is probably a good thing) and having photographed many people, I understand the importance and power a headshot can hold. I come to your location for your headshot. This could be your workplace, home or other location. The point of this is that you will be relaxed.
Being both relaxed and comfortable we work together to attain the best possible image for you. I can't stand having my photo taken and I know what it's like to be on the other side of the camera, therefore I like to work in a way that makes it as relaxed as possible for you!
We can use a bright white background, plain grey, or take a more natural approach and have a blurred background at your location.
During your headshot session we will view and discuss the shots as we go along. I shoot indoor and outdoor using natural light and studio light in both colour and B&W. You are welcome to bring a variety of tops to create different looks.
You will receive, via an online gallery, a choice from the shots taken during your session. Once you have chosen your final 3 headshots they will be retouched within 2 - 5 working days. I'm afraid I don't offer out copies of the un-retouched shots.
What areas do I cover?
The UK. Travel within the UK is included in the price.
What is included and what is the price?
For a standard headshot session of 3 final retouched images in B&W and colour, at your location £195.
Do I use Photoshop?
Retouching (or Photoshopping) has gained a lot of bad press in recent years and quite rightly so. Some fashion magazines distort figures, airbrush skin and create hyper-real images that are more to do with selling products than expressing somebody’s likeness.
Retouching really is a fantastic process for headshots as it really focuses on removing any distractions from an image and allowing more attention to be drawn to the eyes rather than a crease in a jacket for example. This is where the removing flyaway hairs, blemishes, balancing uneven skin tone, brightening and darkening certain areas, altering the colour of clothing etc takes place.
“…here is the new look Editors Message page! It has taken me many years…9 specifically…to be able to even contemplate including my actual picture on the front page! This is for two reasons: I hate having my picture taken [and] the last photographer who took corporate photo’s for me said - and I quote “you aren’t bad looking in real life but something weird happens to you when put in front of a camera” - [my] Confidence shot.
“This all happened before I met Peter Nutkins! He said that he’d be able to capture me as everyone sees me and what’s more, I won’t hate the results!
“I have to say, Peter truly is fantastic at making people feel comfortable and the other team members felt the same way. I just wanted to share with you all how great Peter is. I honestly can’t speak highly enough of Peter and you’d be hard pressed to find a better photographer for your event, be it a wedding, party, graduation, corporate, portraits or anything else you can think of - he really is the man to hire, you won’t be disappointed.”
