Hi, I’m Alex Winn – a professional London headshot photographer who specialises in photographing actors. I’m based in the artistic community of Trinity Buoy Wharf. As one of the premier photographers in London for actor headshots, I have a genuine interest in taking great, professional portfolios for actors that will help get you more auditions and castings.
I believe it’s very important that you feel comfortable so I don’t rush you through the session. I take time to listen to your requirements, to ensure you are relaxed and can develop a good connection with the camera.
I will usually photograph you first in the studio environment and then outdoors in natural daylight to give you the widest possible range of images. Studio headshots can lean slightly more towards a theatrical feel, and daylight is wonderful for giving photographs a very natural style – more in line with film and television. Natural daylight is sometimes preferred by actors agents which is why it’s generally important that you have that option.
Why is a good headshot important?
Your headshot is often the single most important investment you make as an actor or performer. It’s your first opportunity to make an impression on a casting director who will often look at hundreds of headshots before deciding who to invite for an audition. It’s therefore critical that your headshot gets their attention immediately, and holds it long enough to get you selected. It needs to be very well lit, carefully composed and most of all, capture a true likeness of you and your character.
Please get in contact to book a session.

Actors headshot testimonials
I am so pleased I decided to go to Alex Winn for my latest set of actor headshots. Not only was Alex extremely welcoming and friendly, but his commitment to meeting my own particular headshot requirements was fantastic. With Alex's helpful tips and regular reviewing of the shots throughout the session, I've ended up with an outstanding set of headshot photos. I would recommend him without hesitation. –Dan Gaisford (actor)
My shoot with Alex was amazing. I am very impressed with my new headshots and would certainly recommend him to any other actors looking for a headshot photographer. He really worked hard to make sure that I got the images that I needed and my agent was very happy with them too. Overall the session was fantastic and I would definitely use Alex again!–Kamara Bacchus (actress)
Alex was professional and at the same time very approachable. He made the shoot easy and fun and I am delighted with the results. I will definitely be recommending him to my friends for their headshots and will return to him myself in future. If you are looking for great quality shots at a very reasonable price, whether you are a first-timer or looking for a change, look no further.–David Alexander (actor)
Alex offers a professional and personalised service. He took the time to get to know me, what I wanted from the shoot, and the kind of roles I both tend to get cast in and am hoping to enjoy in the future. In doing so Alex created a relaxed environment and was able to take the kind of photos that capture the characters I’m aiming for. He talked me through the entire process, constantly ensuring that I was happy with our progress. I was entirely and the finished photos are of an outstanding quality. Alex was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would and will be happily recommending him to any actors looking for new head shots.–Brad St Ledger (actor/writer)

Had a brilliant day. Alex made me feel really relaxed, and although I was pretty new and inexperienced to the process, he was very patient and generous with his knowledge of his craft.
