3 months on from my headshots with Colin, I’ve been taken on by a top agency and have seen an increase in castings and paid work, including lifestyle modelling which I would have never previously considered myself suitable for, but was recommended by my agent after seeing my headshots. Thanks again Colin, your pictures have had a huge impact for me.
Colin is incredible. Many actors will tell you that they are at their most uncomfortable with headshots/stills – there’s no walking or talking and you’re having to play yourself… never easy. With Colin, I have rarely felt so at ease with the whole process. He’s a genuinely nice guy and he made me most welcome. He listened to what I needed and then brought his own ideas to the table. I felt extremely relaxed, the session flew by, and I think the shots he produced speak for themselves. He turned what is normally an arduous experience into a real pleasure. I was one very satisfied customer. Top man!’
I believe trust is essential to get the best photographs, and right from the get go Colin puts you at ease as he explains carefully what he thinks would make the perfect photograph for both your face and your personality. It really is a collaborative process. At all times I was made to feel that my input and ideas were integral to the photo shoot. Colin throughout the session showed me the taken pictures while we discussed how best to improve them. I even had a say on the choice of music we listened to!
My first proper headshot session for over 15 years, as I always feel so uncomfortable with them….but from the moment I first spoke with Colin over the phone I felt at ease and confident he would be able to get the results I wanted. It didn’t hurt that he phoned me only an hour or so after my initial enquiry on his website. The shoot was great and I actually had a lot of fun. Colin is a lovely guy, he was very conscious about giving me the shots and looI wanted, as well as suggesting his own. He took his time and I was never rushed. I’m very happy with the results and also with the simple convenient aftercare!
Working with Colin is so easy; and that‘s the easiest way of putting it. He’s a breath of fresh air and where some people may find having stills taken a traumatic experience, he will make it seem like you do it every day. Throughout the whole shoot, he never stopped smiling. I can’t recommend the team at Neilson Reeves enough. A great day followed by stunning results.
Throughout shoots he’s relaxed and great company allowing you to express yourself and indulge in your most comfortable states and even effortlessly challenges you to try something new. I’ve done many shoots with many photographers but it’s always Colin’s pics that seem to do me any justice! Great guy and a fantastic talent.
My headshots shoot with Colin and Becky was huge fun – and that’s not something i’d usually describe a headshot session as. From the instant I spoke to Colin on the phone he immediately put me at my ease, something which continued throughout the booking process, the actual shoot and afterwards when struggling to choose which images to choose – not an easy task as both my agent and I were so thrilled with them all!
Colin A Boulter is an excellent photographer. From start to end creating my headshots with him was a fantastic experience.vv He tailored what I wanted, exactly how I wanted and went above and beyond to get it right. He is very passionate about his work and he created an environment and working space where I felt we could be totally open, honest and creative with what we set out to achieve. I highly recommend him.
