My Story

Leejay TownsendI trained as an actor at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. Since graduating in 2008 I have been acting, taking headshots and also running a talent agency. Yep, I don’t believe in days off. I think that this makes me a better headshot photographer as I am still immersed in the industry as a performer and an agent. I understand performers and their needs and what they require to stand out to casting directors.

I know how difficult it is to pick a headshot photographer as there are so many great photographers out there, and they all cater for different budgets.

So why pick me?

I have a performing background so I understand that you don’t always have £300 to spend on headshots. This is why I keep my prices to a reasonable amount. I have a studio at home which means I don’t need to pay rented studio costs. I use quality equipment which means you will always get a quality headshot it just happens to be cheaper! I am based in North London, just 15/20 minutes from central London on the Piccadilly line.

Re-touching is necessary and not all photographers offer that, or they charge extra. Your headshot needs to look it’s best, but at the same time it still needs to look like you. You on your best day. I don’t send final shots until I would be happy using the shot myself. I have very high standards and expect you to be happy with the results.

So what are you waiting for… check out my shots, they speak for themselves. Then head over to the contact page and lets get you booked in!

I look forward to meeting you,
