Young Actor Headshots

Actor Headshots and Portfolios

Here is a face to look out for in the future, aspiring young actor Josh. Josh (11) and his mother approached us to create a portfolio of Actor Headshots to supply to their Agent.

Josh brought along a number of changes for his different looks, which we then based the back drop on. Therefore, enabling us to create the image he wanted to get the roles he is after. From serious to fun loving.  Josh is a lovely young man and very easy to work with. He demonstrated confidence in front of the camera, which shows in the images.

Over the years, we have worked with many Actors / Actresses, creating for them a versatile collection of images that showcases their abilities at the initial audition stage.  Images are supplied either on a pay per image basis, or a package of 10 images which is more cost effective. All final images are supplied in hi-resolution for sharing electronically and printing in media. If required, an album / portfolio is available in addition.

Below are some of the finished images from Josh’s portfolio. We wish Josh every success in his future career. If you require a portfolio of Actor Headshots, please contact us to discuss your requirements and receive a no obligation quote.

Product Photography – Black or White?

Professional Product Photography

Most product sales are now on-line, therefore your images need to sell your product as soon as the consumer looks at it. Professional product photography is highly recommended throughout the E-commerce industry to create eye catching images.

The style of photography to showcase your product is extremely important. A crisp white background is essential for any on-line sales product, so much so, that Amazon specifically state white background images in their sellers specifications.

However, images for use on your website, you can be more creative. A popular background for websites is black. One of our returning customers, Red Anchor Supply Co., use both black and white. Often, they request their products to be photographed on a white background for online sales and black reflective for editorial images on their website’s gallery.

Below are a sample of the images that are use to showcase their product, both with white and black.

Candid Wedding Photos

Natural and Candid Wedding Photos

Every Wedding Photographer has a different style, therefore it is important to choose the perfect style and photographer for you. Philip Charles Photography provides classic, natural, candid wedding photos. Capturing the day as it happens, from laughter to intimate moments.

On 25th June 2016 we had the pleasure of providing wedding photography for Gemma and Justin. The ceremony was held at the Methodist Church in Four Oaks, followed by reception at Ramada Birmingham Sutton Coldfield. The day began at the Bride’s parents home to capture the bridal preparations – perfect opportunity for plenty of candid shots. The bridal party was then transported to the ceremony by Love Wedding Cars. The ceremony was beautiful with lots of personal touches, including the Bride’s father taking to the piano.

Here are some images from the day. If you would like to discuss your wedding photography, please contact us.

The atmosphere is amazing at the Proms, which we thrive on. In return, we capture photos that the students will cherish for years to come as a memento of their High School Prom. A mobile studio area is set up in the venue room with backdrop and professional lighting. All photographs purchased are printed, mounted and packed in a plastic protective cover on the night ready for taking home. We will take any style of photograph requested – single portrait to showcase the stunning outfits, couples, groups of friends etc. Even the teachers get involved with team photos. The photos can be as formal or as fun as you want them to be, and there is no limit to the number of times you step out in front of the camera.

Wedding Photos Tamworth

Wedding Photos in Tamworth Castle Grounds

Our hometown’s Tamworth Castle Grounds is a stunning location for wedding photos. With the iconic Castle, floral terrace and bandstand, this is the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography.

With numerous local wedding venues close by, including Drayton Manor and Lea Marston Hotel, many couples choose to have their photos taken in the Castle Grounds before heading to the Reception venue. The obelisk and Lady Bank bridge is also on our list of excellent backdrops.

At one of our recent weddings, the happy couple married at Polesworth Abbey. Before heading to their reception at Lea Marston Hotel, we went into the Castle Grounds. The timing could not have been better, when we arrived there was a battle reenactment. The Groom was in the armed forces and dressed in uniform, therefore we could not miss the opportunity to involve the battle actors, image is below.
