About me

Hi, I am Peter Somogyi, a London based headshot photographer, welcome to my site.

As a former cinematographer I have always been a huge fan of capturing human faces. I realized quiet soon how different every person is and I always tried to emphasize this differences in my compositions. I never photograph two people in the same way. I always strive for creating something new, something unique what turns every individual into a genuine character. I think this process made headshot photography my passion. As a result I always get really good feedbacks, not just from my clients but from agents and casting directors as well. I am proud of that my former clients get much more auditions and managed to get into the biggest agencies in London.

I understand that working as a performer can be really tough and struggling and not everyone can afford to pay hundreds of pounds for their headshots in every 2 years. Therefore I keep my prices as cheap as possible which allows you to get industry standard headshots for as low £80.

Should you have any questions or queries, feel free to contact me at any time.

the session

The session will take place in my homestudio in Greenwich, where we will sit down with some drink and snack to discuss your casting range and what you are looking for. We will review the images after each round to see how we are going and you will receive a digital contact sheet within 24 hours after your session. Then you can select the ones which you want retouched. You will receive all your retouched pictures cropped to standard 8×10 in high resolution both in colour and B&W.

the difference

Of course, it is important to have a great lighting set up, nice backgrounds and smart outfit choices but the most important thing when it comes to headshot is your expression.
