Your Headshot Session

At a Glance

Fully equipped, spacious studio in London N15 | Natural and studio lighting | Extensive range of backdrops | Consultation and bespoke service with every shoot



Hello! I’m Roj, an experienced, professional headshot and portrait photographer. I’ve even picked up an award or two along the way. And I want everyone I shoot with to be completely confident about two things.

Firstly, your headshot will be more than just a great likeness. It will represent you, your personality and the roles or opportunities you’re looking for. Which is why every shoot begins with me begins with a consultation, so we can chat through your requirements and develop the brief for your session.

Secondly, your headshots are going to stand out with a character and quality that makes a great first impression and demands a second look. Your headshots need to be compelling portraits that grab the viewer, even as a thumbnail. So in your session I will work with you creatively, directing you to get the best from your sitting and to allow your individuality and character to shine through. And if you have strong ideas about how you’d like your shots to look, that’s no problem. I’ll work with you to bring those ideas to life.

My personal approach isn’t about always working to a set style that I happen to like.
Or pumping out headshot after headshot on a production line.

It’s about your personal goals and the images that you need to succeed.

Because with over 30 years of experience in the creative industry, including hundreds of casting calls and reviewing thousands of headshots, I really do understand the most important part of the whole process.

You.

The STUDIO

My studio can be found right here:
The Nest, Studio 502, The Archives, Unit 10, High Cross Centre, N15 4BE.

Take the Tube to Tottenham Hale Station on the Victoria Line or a very short hop from London Liverpool Street or Stratford on the Overground. From there it’s just a short walk to The Archives. If you have trouble finding The Archives it’s in the same building as the Stronghold Climbing Centre Tottenham, which you can find on City Mapper and Google Maps:

Take the lift to the fifth floor and I will meet you in the lobby area. There’s a coffee shop on the first floor connected to the climbing centre and a large café/bar on the ground floor to the left of the main entrance if you need refreshment or fancy bringing a coffee with you.

Your Headshots On The Day

Preparation is everything and it means that on the day we shoot you can get the best from our time together. So it’s always best to arrive a little early, well rested, hydrated and ready to look and give your best.

Bring as many outfits as you like. I love options. But it’s time to whip out the old iron because I hate creases! Honestly, this really can make a huge difference to your headshots. My advice is bring the clothes that you love to wear – pieces that tell the world who you are and that you feel really comfortable in. Patterns, textures, coats and jackets – nothing is off the table. So let’s get them all up on the rail and chat through your best options. The studio includes a spacious changing room with a dressing table for hair and make up. It’s better to keep your make up for headshot sessions light and natural – it’s all about accentuating rather than disguising your natural look.

I keep sessions relaxed and informal so if we run over time a little, it’s no problem. I want you to leave the studio feeling confident that you have everything you need. After your headshot session I’ll send you a full set of digital contact sheets through Photo Workflow so you can make you final choices before I work on your edits. I carefully edit all of the images myself to ensure they are clean, natural, authentic and deliver on your brief. Temporary imperfections are all removed – so if there’s anything in the shots that won’t be there in two weeks time, it won’t be final in your final edit either. And if you have editing notes, you can leave these for me in the comments on Photo Workflow. For me the editing is a significant part of the process because this is where we develop and enhance the story that each headshot is looking to tell.

My fully equipped and spacious studio enjoys bags of natural light, is close to London’s O2 Arena and the kettle is always on.
