INTRODUCING THE VM HEADSHOTS FUND
HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHY WITH A FUN WAY TO GIVE BACK
VM HEADSHOTS recognise that people need a helping hand and guidance when it comes to the world of presentation, so we have created THE VM HEADSHOTS FUND.
We take a percentage of the sales made from our headshot business and use this to fund the complimentary headshot service we offer to people from one of London’s performing arts colleges or talented individuals who have been nominated by our network.
We also share their story and chart their success – after all, we are interested in people’s narratives!

Headshot Fund client: SHAYE LAWRENCE. With ambitions of screen & stage, how could we not add VM HEADSHOTS magic to the mix.
FAQs AND INFORMATION
WHERE ARE YOU BASED/WHERE DO WE SHOOT? We are based in North London. We are BIG fans of natural light headshots! With this in mind, our studio of choice is always an outdoor space. Parks are fantastic relaxed spaces, with great light for amazing headshots (let us know where you are based and we will endeavour to find somewhere suitable close by). We do however have an indoor option for those scenarios that require it, and for clients booking five individuals or more, we will come to your place of work and set up a VM HEADSHOTS portable studio.
We are located at: The Bernie Grant Art Centre, Enterprise Building Unit 10, Town Hall Approach Road, London N15 4RX.
BOOKING:To book your headshot session you can contact us on 07881 888 783 or fill in our contact form.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT MY SESSION? On the day of your session please arrive 15 minutes early to allow us time to prepare. We will go through what you have brought with you and chose the final outfit/outfits for your session. Once we start shooting we will work with the best angles that suit your needs.
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION LAST? We advise our clients to allow between 30-60minutes for their headshot sessions.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SHOOT? After the shoot the image is edited. We like to keep everything natural, these are the characteristics of a winning headshot and so we keep retouching to a minimum. Then we will email you the contact sheet (a collection of images taken at the shoot), so that you can select the images that work the best for your needs. If you are having child headshot images, feel free to share these with their agent, to help you make the selection. Once the choice has been made, we will then send the high resolution images to you electronically.
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS The VM headshots are different because of our amazing headshot fund. As a headshot business we are as equally committed to delivering winning headshots as we are to be supporting the career development of individuals.
Working with partner organisations including Mediorite, Protege and Iitspiration we make it easy for our customers to help others. A percentage of the fee you pay to us, goes into our headshot fund. We then give a free headshot session to one of the people that our partner organisations work with.
WHY ARE MOST IMAGE FROM VM HEADHSOTS CREATED IN LANDSCAPE FORMAT? We have always been a massive fan of landscape-oriented images, and by visiting www.visualmarvelry.com you will see many examples of this. If you watch any film where the scene is a close-up of the face you will see what we mean, since many of the clients that we shoot for will be seen on a screen of some sort (film or website) this is the best format. Of course if you REALLY want your image to be shot in portrait we can either shoot in that format or crop after the shoot. Please let us know your preference
I’VE NEVER HAD MY PHOTO TAKEN BEFORE, WILL I BE OK? We work in a professional, relaxed and fun way. We’ll guide you through the process to put you at ease, so that you can relax and enjoy the shoot.
CAN I HAVE A CHANGE OF OUTFIT? Of course! You can have one outfit change. This will enable us to capture two sides of your personality.
HOW DO I PAY FOR MY SESSIONS? Payment is required ahead of the shoot to secure your booking. PAYMENT DETAILS: Please make your payment to the following account: BANK: Santander ACCOUNT NAME: Visual Marvelry / SORT CODE: 090128 / ACCOUNT NUMBER: 48329876 / REFERENCE: VM Headshots
HOW LONG AFTER THE SESSIONS WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS? We will aim to have your images to you within 5 working days (If you need them sooner please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you).
After your session we’ll email you the contact sheet (a collection of images taken at the shoot), so that you can select the three images you feel work best. Feel free to share them with your agent to help you make your selection, it’s important that you are happy. Once you have selected them, we will then send the high-resolution photos to you electronically.
DO YOU HAVE AGE LIMITS FOR YOUR CLIENTS? We definitely do not! We believe that the need for a great image of yourself is not limited by age.
A FEW DAYS BEFORE: Please send over an image of yourself, this helps us to prepare in terms of lighting and composition.
CLOTHING FOR THE HEADSHOT SESSION: Please bring a few neutral tops and t-shirts to change into (Preferably no stripes, patterns or large logos). Black, blue, purple, white or grey are good colours. Bring along a top or jacket of your choice that is a little bit more special (to give us an extra option).
MAKE-UP: If you wear make-up it should be as natural as possible for your headshot session (headshot images are all about you with minimal distractions). We can also supply a make-up service if you would prefer to have a particular look created for you on the day. There is an extra cost for this service.
AFTER THE SHOOT: After your session we will go through the images together to make the selection, then they are processed. Striking headshots are about bringing your personality to the forefront, so we keep retouching to a minimum.
Then we’ll send your finished high-resolution image/s to you via WeTransfer. If you would like to print the images we recommend; The Print Space (www.theprintspace.co.uk), they print to a high quality and are very reasonable.
We normally ask clients if they are happy for their image to be used to promote VM Headshots online and in print. Please let us know if you would not like your image to be used.
