general advice and information

When considering any headshot package think carefully about the roles you want to win and the impression you want to give to casting directors. A good headshot will require full use of your acting skills. For men if you want some shots with a beard, unless you can grow one in 2½ hours, come bearded, do that look and then shave for a complete change. Bring a complete outfit change suitable for each look and maybe a few other changes of top. Steer clear of bold patterns that may distract from your face, plain colours and good textures work best. For black and white shots, plain black, crisp white or cream work well.

Located in the heart of bustling Manchester city centre our studio offers a top quality lighting set-up and a variety of backgrounds. With the variety of Manchester city centre outside we can ensure that your headshots will have interesting backdrops that are aesthetically pleasing, but creative use of depth of field will ensure that it will not distract from you, the main focus of the headshot. We want you to relax in the studio and enjoy your session, as having a relaxed subject is the key to a great portrait, so please feel free to bring in your ipod or mp3 player loaded with your favourite tunes.

  • adult male actor deluxe headshot package

    This is our most frequently requested male actors headshot package. In designing this package we have consulted with actors and casting agents to find out what they require from headshots and tailored a package accordingly. This package has been planned specifically for the customer for whom an outstanding result, not cost, is the major consideration. It provides you with ample time in the studio and the attention of a professional make up artist. The session will last about 2½ hours, this is less time than for women, hence the slightly lower cost, but it still gives plenty of time for hair and make up and for you to do at least three looks. Initial hair, make up and the first headshots are taken in the studio. If you want we can then head for Manchester city centre to utilise the variety of interesting backdrops that the urban landscape provides, before returning for some more studio work. If you do not wish to head into the city we will continue to work in the studio. Either option ensures that you have a wide selection of proofs from which to choose the ones that you consider to be the most effective.

  • child actor headshot package

    We love shooting children and if you are considering this package you may also want to look at our family portrait section too. Your children do not have to be actors for this package, in fact we shoot anyone from babies up to 14 years. Older than that then we feel that the adult package is more suitable. We aim to keep the shoot fun and relaxed and keep the time to about 1½ hours so that no-one gets too bored. We still try to shoot three complete looks so again bring 6 complete changes of clothing to select from. Hair & make-up are not included as most children & teens don't need it. If you wish to have full hair and makeup, the full adults package price and booking schedule will apply. Our professional make up artist is only in when we shoot adults.

    As a brief recap here is a list of all that's included with your child's actors shoot:

  • Approximately 1.5 hours of studio time.
  • Proofs ready within 2-4 business days and viewable online at the RPP client area as described above.
  • Approximately 125-150 proofs to choose from.
  • Two retouched images of your choice, provided as high-resolution digital files.
  • Our professional digital editing software allows you the flexibility to choose your final retouched images in color, b/w, or sepia.
  • All shoots are archived, so we'll always have your shots on file when you need them.
  • Retouching is included with all repro orders through the RPP client area.
  • A complimentary web image is included with each retouched repro order.
  • The following additional package options can be ordered anytime through your profile at the RPP client area.

  • High-resolution retouched digital files, low-resolution web images (retouched or unretouched).
  • Pick-up at studio, delivery, or electronic file-transfer for digital files available for all orders.
  • actor's location & publicity package

    We often get actors in for shoots needing shots with a more editoral feel to use for publicity as well as headshots, so we thought we'd put together a package just for them. Although we can get an amazing variety of shots within the studio and in the local neighborhood, nothing compares to shots on location that are completely original. So, if you have a great location or concept in mind you'd like to use for your shoot, let us know...or if you are just wanting something different and aren't sure what that might be, we can definitely come up with something for you. We love the opportunity to get out of the studio, just make sure we have plenty of time to work with you on the concept so it still represents you...just with a way cooler background than normal.

    We'll spend approximately 4-6 hours with you (including hair/makeup time, travel and lighting setup if necessary) making sure the studio your location is setup and lit to match the look you're going for. If your location is not too far from our studio, we can usually combine the two and get some studio shots done as well. These are our favourite shoots as they really let us get creative with the shooting environment and get great shots for your needs as well as our portfolio.

    As a brief recap here is a list of all that's included with your shoot:

  • Full hair and make-up for three different outfit changes by our professional stylist.
  • No difference in pricing for men or women.
  • As many dynamic angles/setups in your location as time will allow (at least 3 totally different setups).
  • Approximately 4-5 hours location time (including hair/makeup time, travel and lighting setup).
  • Shots in studio included as well, for the most variety possible.
  • Proofs ready within 2-4 business days and provided by Electronic File Transfer or CD.
  • Virtually unlimited number of shots, time permitted. You should end up with between 300 & 500 to choose from.
  • All shoots are archived, so we'll always have your shots on file when you need them.
  • Four retouched images of your choice, provided as high-resolution digital files.
  • Each retouched file is optimized for both print and web (magazines/books, business cards, online ads, websites, etc) so you have everything you need to make an impact with your marketing.
  • You have unlimited usage rights on all retouched images you order, so they are yours to use for whatever promotional purpose you need, until you are ready to get some new shots with us.
  • The following additional package options can be ordered anytime through your profile at the RPP client area website.

  • 4x6 printed proofs in color or b/w.
  • CD of low-resolution, watermarked digital proofs.
  • High-resolution retouched digital files, low-resolution web images (retouched or unretouched).
  • Pick-up at studio, delivery, or electronic file-transfer for digital files available for all orders.
