That create a stunning impression
Are you being noticed?
Good news: It isn’t you!
Your Headshot is you
People who judge a person as likeable and trustworthy or the opposite, disagreeable and closed from their headshot, go on to maintain this opinion when they meet face-to-face…even 1 month later when they can’t even remember the photograph!"Impressions based on a portrait predict, 1-Month later, impressions following a live interaction" by Gul Gunaydin, Emre Selcuk and Vivian Zayas

Confidence And Approachability In Your Headshot
This comes mostly from the eyes. The rabbit in the headlights look is all too common in poor headshots and we certainly don’t want that. I will help you make small and easy adjustments to your stance and eyes, using proven techniques so that you exude confidence and assurity.
In combination with the eyes, this comes from the mouth. A hint of a smile can go a long way. We have no need of any “3-2-1 say Cheese” type smiles here – we humans have the innate ability to detect a fake smile so we’re aiming for that natural look that says “I’m the genuine article. You can trust in me”.
We are all the victims of unconscious bias. We instantly and unconsciously make judgements about the people we see and they about us. It’s a natural phenomenon that has evolved to serve as a defense mechanism. You can turn this to your advantage by making the best possible impression.
Do you hate having your photograph taken?
In the words of Gary Barlow, are you Smiling But Dying Inside whenever you're threatened with having your picture taken?
What My Clients Say
“I was very nervous at the start and was worried that I wouldn’t know what to do. But Stephen was great, he guided me every step of the way and in the end it was great fun and I got some amazing pictures for my LinkedIn profile and work website”Rachel W, Midlands
“Up to now, I’ve always just used selfies for my profile pictures. I thought it made no difference and that I could take every bit as good a shot with my phone. But the photos I got from you were stunning and blew me away! Thank you so much!”Naomi K, Cheshire
Stephen was a pleasure to work with, excellent communication and the best quote I received by a long way! very pleased.
I have no hesitation recommending Stephen’s photography services. He produced a quality head shot photograph for me and the price was very competitive too:-).
Really great service. The online service to book an appointment was really intuitive and straight forward with signing of model release and contract very straight forward. The appointment reminders were helpful too. The photographer, Stephen, was excellent, arriving bang on time, rapidly setting up whilst simultaneously putting me at ease and preparing me for the shoot with a relaxing and light-hearted manner. The shoot itself was easy, tips on how to hold one's head and posture led to surprisingly instant professional shots, which we could review as we went on. A good number of shots were taken, after which the photographer and I rapidly sorted into 'candidate' and 'reject'. A few days later, these were available to view online in a raw state, choosing the required amount, adding these to a basket, paying for them and then a few days later received download links to colour corrected high quality professional head shots ready to add to services like LinkedIn and the like. Overall, extremely satisfied.
An awesome experience. Stephen was recommended to my by a friend and I now recommend him to YOU! He is very friendly and professional and and helped me get some excellent shots. I'm so pleased. Thank you, Stephen!

As well as being a headshot photographer, I also dabble in the world of product photography and film making. My Instagram feed is full of my hobby images which are actually not headshots but lanscapes, wildlife and architecture. Feel free to click on the Instagram link on this page to go take a look. I'm also a husband and dad to two girls and have lived here on the beautiful peninsula of Wirral for twenty years.
I love to meet new people and I feel lucky to be doing what I love - photographing them! I'm genuinely interested in people's stories and I feel privileged to be part of helping them reach their goals. I hope we too can get together and take your personal image to the next level.
