Testimonial about our Actor Headshot Photography Service
Colin is not only an incredible photographer, but an absolute blast to shoot with! I was at his studio a whole afternoon and I never stopped laughing. He makes you feel comfortable and gives great direction. As an actress you’d think I love having my photo taken – well I don’t!! But with Colin it was fun! He chatted about everything and why he was taking a photograph in a particular way. His amazing eye for light and colour brings your essence out through the shot, giving you a headshot that not only looks great, but speaks to what makes you uniquely you ! Nothing was too much trouble and importantly, Colin never rushed you if you needed to make changes with hair and makeup! I love my new Spotlight pictures! Can’t recommend him enough!
