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 we offer to people from one of London’s performing arts colleges or talented individuals nominated by our network.
We also share their story and chart their success, after all we are interested in people’s narratives! We collaborate with MEDIORITE and INDUSTRY IN THE STREETS, their team of young creatives document and chart the journey of the young performer and their ascent in performing arts.

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 book you into the closest one). We do however have an indoor option for those scenarios that require it and for clients booking five sitters or more we will come to 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. We keep our diary flexible to match your availability.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT MY SESSION? On the day of your sessions 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 will suit your needs, we will then have lots of fun working together and sadly our session will come to a close.
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 the contact sheet to you (a collection of images taken at the shoot), so that together you can select the images that work the best. It’s important you are happy, so feel free to share them with your childrens agent to help make the selection. Once the choice has been made we will then send the high resolution images to you electronically.
FOR PRINTING WE RECOMMEND The Print Space (www.theprintspace.co.uk), they print to a high quality and are very reasonable.
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 supporting the career development of people. 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 goes to our headshot fund for the people these organisations work with. We then give a free headshot session to one of the people they work with.
Our approach to capturing your images. We have always been a massive fan of landscape oriented images, visit www.visualmarvelry.com and you will see many examples. 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

We specialise in headshots for actors, musical theatre performers, business owners, models and anyone else that needs to represented by a great head shot image.
