Amazing Headshots and Portraits of Famous People

I truly believe in the importance of professional headshots and portraits. It isn’t just famous people who require a professional image, and it’s not just big brands who can utilise professional photography. Headshots are a great way to represent the team members within a business, they can be used on Linkedin, get more casting calls for actors, and show an individual’s personal brand.

Whilst you don’t need to be famous to get your portrait taken, it is always interesting to look at the shots taken of famous people, and use those as a starting point for inspiration.

Top photographers who have years and years of experience in their craft are selected to photograph our celebrities. You can learn a lot by looking at how an established photographer lights, poses and frames a portrait.

Below you will find work from various photographers capturing those who we see on our screens, through our radios, and on the internet.
