Black and White or Colour Headshots

Olivia visited the Devon Headshot studio recently in Southernhay, Exeter, and it was a fabulous session. This was an extended session where we allowed ourselves the time to explore a few ideas. Nowadays most digital shots start as a colour file; I seriously considered a Leica Monochrom but, it is seriously expensive! So files need [...]

Mike came into the Exeter photography studio this week to update his headshots for his acting career. With a good sense of the style of image he wanted, images were shot to echo the acting roles that he typically looks for. Images were shot in landscape format but also supplied cropped to 8/10 [...]

Exeter School Headshots

Two recent visits to Exeter School to photograph headshots a couple of days apart, and although it wasn't strictly necessary there seemed to be a sense in replicating the style even though the shoots were to be in different locations within the school. We decided to go for an up-beat high-key approach with the sitters [...]

Weekend Headshot Session

Sanchia recently visited the Exeter headshot photography studio for a relaxed Saturday sitting. She was in need of cover and support images for a soon to be released CD. The shots were taken in low-key style to suit the musical content and subsequently re-worked slightly to fit more closely with the themes of the her [...]

Afternoon Headshot with Marie

Marie popped into the studio late afternoon so as not to intrude with work schedules. I always suggest headshot sitters allow time to relax and choose a suitable time not to be frazzled by work, Marie seems to have achieved both! The relaxed images are in preparation for new business ventures.

A Busy Weekend at the Exeter Photography Studio

I've been spending a lot of time recently looking at our kitchen, I'm sure we can fix what's there rather than spend a fortune on a new one, I stand there, just looking at it and working out in my head what might happen. Recently I acquired the complete stock of a working photographic studio [...]

Corporate and Accessible Headshots

Sam came to our Exeter photography studio with a firm idea of what she wanted to achieve with her headshots, basically professional yet accessible and friendly. This direction always helps set the tone of an image although the photographic style of the headshot portrait can still be very varied. With a large number of lighting [...]
