London 4 Lyf.

So I am totally obsessing over London at the minute. Recently I have been travelling to London and back on quite a regular basis, and although the travelling gets tiring I am always over the moon when I get the chance to be there. Obviously being British London is just a huge deal, it's our Capital city after all. But London is more than that to me. There is just something about it.

Everywhere you go in London there is always something to explore, to learn or to appreciate. Around every corner there is some hidden treasure to find. On every street there are SO MANY people with so many different personalities and persona's. OK maybe this is just a 'city thing' to some, but I live in a small town where everyone knows everyone, which I'm sure you can imagine has it's downfalls, and where if I'm honest, nothing exciting ever really happens. I lived in Liverpool whilst I was studying at University and although I loved Liverpool, I dunno, London life just feels right. I long for the hustle and bustle of the tube, admittedly at 8:30am rush hour it's not the most pleasant experience but it is, however a rather spectacular sight. All of those people, with different personalities and persona's rushing around, trying not to spill their Starbucks double shot lattes (that they must have to see them through the day) on their papers for the morning meeting or last minute cramming on their MacBooks whilst blaring out their latest favourite Spotify playlist for the whole carriage to hear. London is a crazy busy place, but if you stop and look around you, there is so much to be excited about and to appreciate.

Some of my recent visits to London, with much more to come. LONDON I LOVE YOU.

New Actors Headshots Babbbyyyy!

So a few weeks ago I travelled to Islington, London to have new actors headshots taken with a well known photographer Philip Wade. Headshots can be a stressful time for actors, the last time I had headshots done I had a meltdown afterwards because I didn't like my eyebrows on the shots! NIGHTMARE I know.

So in preparation for my new fancy London headshots I had my eyebrows done a couple of days before, ORGANISED... Attempted to have a couple of early nights prior to the shoot (I'm pretty much nocturnal) but I did try! And also drank lots and lots of water, a couple of tips that photographers advise prior to their clients having their headshots done.

I chose to go with Philip partly because my agents recommended him but also because his work is
impressive and his prices are reasonable, especially for a London photographer. The whole shoot was a pleasurable experience from beginning to end. Philip was easy going but very professional. On arrival we discussed what type of looks I wanted to create and how we could achieve these looks using different clothes and hairstyles etc. The shoot lasted around 2 hours and throughout I felt comfortable and relaxed, which I believe played a massive factor in the outcome of my shots, which you can view below.

If you're an actor looking for new headshots I urge you to take a look at Philip Wade!
