Hi there! My name is Alishia Love, I have been shooting Actors headshots for almost a decade. Since my headshot journey began, I have created a strong relationship with a number of well respected agencies in the UK. This is because they trust that my headshots get their actors hired.
I love shooting people (not literally) because I find it fascinating when I capture someones personality and energy in an image. Because I have photographed so many actors, one thing I have come to realise is that most actors hate having photos taken of themselves.
If thats you then don’t panic! I pride myself on my relaxed approach when it comes to my photo shoots. I am also a bit of a perfectionist, so I will guide you through and tell you what to do throughout the whole shoot. I will have you ‘smizing’ to your hearts content when I’m finished with you! (If you don’t get the ’smizing’ reference, click here)
I shoot my headshots using natural light in my home studio in Moreton in Marsh in The Cotswolds. This is because I feel it captures you in an honest, natural way. The added bonus of being indoors means that you get all the benefits of a natural light shoot, just without the wind or bad weather!
Why travel to me?
Headshots are an investment and fundamental part of your acting career. It's not something you should be booking last minute or cramming it in between appointments. The reason most people enjoy travelling outside of London for their headshots, because it means they are less stressed and have a better mindset for the photo shoot (lets face it, most of us get nervous when it comes to getting our photo taken!)
Being away from stress and noise of the city will help you to relax fully and capture shots that represent your true personality.
When you travel to me, the calming fresh air will instantly allow you to switch off all your other worries, and will allow you focus on one thing - getting those winning headshots!
There are regular direct trains from...
London Paddington (1hr23),
Oxford (30 mins),
Its just a short 10 minute walk from the station to my studio.
It is also an easy to drive to Moreton in Marsh, and free parking once you arrive.
Although most people when visiting the Cotswolds like to try and make a trip of it and stay in an air b&b
for a couple of days as its such a gorgeous area with so much to see!
About the session.
When you arrive, I will load you up with tea & coffee and we will have a quick chat about what you want to get out of your session. Throughout the shoot I will show you the images we take and we will work together to capture a perfect set of headshots that you will be proud to show off! I want to capture your personality, see your natural smile and have a fun along the way! Please take a look at my testimonial section, where you can read a number of reviews from previous actors and agents.
I am also very proud to be an approved member of The Association of Professional Headshot Photographers - a non-profit group of the UK's leading headshot photographers that champions the highest standards in casting portraiture. So you know that you will be getting an APHP approved headshot session when you book with me.
