Testimonial: Here is what Gemma said about our service
Having spent 10 years in the oil industry in Aberdeen in shipping if you had told me one day I would be having a photo shoot in a shipping container which I spent years shipping them to various destinations in the world I would have laughed at you…in fact on the day I did. It was a nice reminder of how far I had come in a short space of time. I was nervous….very nervous after looking on Colins web-site he has taken photographs of some very known actors who have spent years in the business and here’s me who’s new to the industry and thinking how can I compare to these other actors. Colin was amazing even when I inquired I asked for his advise, he was very knowledgeable and after speaking to him on the phone we had a few things in common and I knew he was very enthusiastic about what he does. I had asked several people who to get headshots with many recommending cheaper options but I kept coming back to Colins web-site and something instantly kept drawing me back, his photographs stood out from all the rest. My make up was done by Rebecca Tupman who was equally as passionate as Colin and did a fantastic natural look for the day. Will definitely be using you again for future projects. Colin made me feel at ease the whole time making me laugh and has incredible attention to detail as well as being patient. Although the session went by quickly it wasn’t rushed and I feel that is very important. With Colin you get quality and someone that is passionate about what they do on top of that you have fun in a relaxed atmosphere. Why cut corners when it comes to headshots are the key tool to selling yourself in the industry. I highly recommend both Colin and Rebecca and will be back.
