Are you struggling to find the right photographer for your model headshots?

Choosing the right photographer for your headshots can be a daunting task, especially when you want to ensure that your portfolio stands out. At Alison McKenny Photography (and our studio based in Stoke By Clare, Suffolk) we understand the challenges and importance of getting that perfect shot. With over 13 years of experience as a professional portrait photographer, I’ve helped numerous models create stunning portfolios that capture their unique essence and versatility.

What Makes a Great Model Headshot?

One common question I hear from young models is: “How do I find a photographer who can capture my true self in a headshot?” The answer lies in finding someone who not only has technical expertise but also the ability to connect with their subjects. My 13 years of experience and multiple photography awards are a testament to my dedication to capturing the essence of each model regardless of age or level of experience in modelling.

Variety is Key

A great portfolio showcases a model’s versatility. During sessions I like to explore different poses and expressions to highlight the models range. From playful smiles to thoughtful looks, each shot told a unique story.

We can shoot in my studio or outside on our family farm or at a location of your choice.   I have lots of different backdrops, props and outfits that you are welcome to use and if you are not sure what you might need, we can offer advice or assistance or can work with your modeling agency to achieve the looks that they find most commercially successful.  This variety is crucial in helping models stand out to casting directors and agents.

Building a Connection

Photographing children, especially siblings, requires creating a comfortable and fun environment. This connection is evident in their photos, where their natural bond and individual personalities shine through. Whether it’s a shared laugh or a caring hug, these moments add depth to their portfolios.

Why Choose Me for Your Headshots?

  • Experience: With 13 years in the industry, I’ve honed my skills to perfection. I’m used to working with models with no experience so I can give direction to create the most flattering and beautiful portraits.
  • Award-Winning: My work has been recognised with multiple awards, reflecting my commitment to excellence.
  • Versatility: Whether you want a variety of styles in your portfolio or simple, stunning headshots, I can cater to your needs with a bespoke session.
