"Working with Aimee is great: she is great, professional, funny and she knows exactly how to get the best out of you! She understood me as an actor and as a person directing me in a really comfortable way. She helped me a lot in choosing the final headshots. I received excellent quality photographs and I really enjoyed the whole afternoon spent with her!" - Salvatore Langella

I was referred to Aimee Spinks through Birmingham School of Acting and I'm so glad I found her! She was easy to make an appointment with, and communicate with in terms of what I was looking for in my actor headshots. She explained how everything would go and everything did go just like she said it would which made me feel very comfortable and relaxed from the get go. I found Aimee professional and friendly. She gave great direction; her use of imagery to get the appropriate look was great! But to be honest she's just a nice person all the way around. She and I had such an nice time, her direct and encouraging manner was just what a newbie like me needed! She will snap as many photos as needed until she gets the right shot. (I ended up with lots and lots of fantastic shots, more than I had anticipated)! She tells you what doesn't look good, and what does. She allows you to participate in the process, as much or as little as you like by showing you the shots along the way on the camera so you can understand what she means when she says, "look down, turn left, arms back, chin up." Her rates are incredibly reasonable, especially for students. I left the session with a wide variety of amazing photos. I would wholeheartedly recommend Aimee to anyone in need of new acting headshots. All in all, it was the best experience I could have imagined. Reasonable rates, great location, great service, beautiful outcome. Thank you Aimee." - Rebecca Currie

My daughter had her first photo shoot for actor headshots with Aimee. Aimee was incredibly helpful and professional, my daughter loved the experience and we are delighted with the results. All the photos were good, we were spoilt for choice. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Aimee if they want fabulous photos!

"Great professionalism and guidance from Aimee, which is just what we needed as my daughter has never had professional head shots before. Macey really enjoyed the session and we are all really impressed with the photos and how quick we got them." - Nicole White

"I am so happy, both with the finished photo selection, and the afternoon I spent with Aimee. She takes all the awkwardness out of having a camera pointed at your face (something so many actors feel uncomfortable about, as it can be so exposing). She takes time to suss out exactly what it is that you want, and works effectively and professionally to get the best out of you each time. You feel relaxed, confident, and like you're having so much fun! She knows the industry inside out so you end up with amazing quality photos that fit current trends and show your true self. I've learnt a lot about how to present myself in front of the lens in future, and I recommend her 100% to anyone looking for new head shots." - Charlie Reilly

Aimee is just wonderful to work with, relaxed, professional and the session flew by really quickly. Aimee will always go through the images throughout the shoot and gives great advice and direction that makes for great actor headshots. At the end of the shoot she will help you decide which headshots best reflect the looks you are going for. I would definitely go back to her again and would highly recommend. - Courtney Gabbidon

"Working with Aimee was great. She was friendly, approachable and professional. She made me feel totally at ease throughout the shoot and she took what I asked her for on board and produced some great actor headshots for me that I'm delighted with. Would definitely recommend her and would love to work with her again!" - Tegan Westall

"Aimee is a fantastic photographer and an exceptional person. She is very easy to work with and was really quick at returning my edited photographs. I'm not usually comfortable in front of a camera but Aimee made the whole experience effortless. She has a lovely, natural way of directing even a difficult client like myself to get the most out of the shoot. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the experience. Also, I must add that I lost my phone on the day and Aimee went back outside in the cold to look for it which shows what a lovely person she is. Thank you Aimee!" - Shabnam Rajah

Worth more than a 5 star rating! I have never enjoyed having my acting headshots taken until I met Aimee. Aimee made me feel at ease and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The headshots came back and are absolutely fantastic. Worth every penny. If you're looking to get new actor headshots, then you really can't do much better than Aimee. A true professional and people person - James Bryhan

"I had the best time at my headshot session with Aimee last week. She is so amazing at her job I couldn't recommend her enough. She really helped me express the different kinds of characters I wanted to capture and helps so much with industry insight. I am so happy with the finished head shots! And couldn't have met a nicer photographer to work with, felt at ease instantly ☺️ UPDATE- After an incredibly quiet period in terms of auditions, my new headshot 's have only been on my Spotlight page for two days and I have already got an audition for a really exiting new role. My agency are convinced it is because of the headshots, a good outdoor look really is what casting directors look, and because Aimee was able to capture a different vibe in each of my headshots. So happy!" - Bethany-Antonia Clarke

"'Aimee is marvelous! Her superb attention to detail, professionalism and warmth shone throughout the shoot. I find I am nervous whenever I have a new set of head shots taken, however Aimee was brilliant at working to get the right range of looks for my casting and I still looked like me! The results were just what I wanted and excellent value for money, I cant recommend her enough!'" - Laura Tipper

This was my first time having headshots done, Aimee did exercises to ease me into it, using people, images and stories to connect to, it was very playful and relaxed. My headshots are absolutely brilliant, she has a real eye for it and I completely trusted her opinion when helping me choose the final ones. Would recommend Aimee to any actor who is looking for headshots, you don't have to go to London, she is brilliant. Thanks again Aimee!" - Natalie Simone

"I'm so glad I went to Aimee for my actor headshots. I wasn't sure what to expect at first as these were my first professional headshots I'd ever had done, and so I was quite nervous. However, as soon as I met Aimee and we began talking about what I wanted from the session, I realised there had been nothing to worry about, she really does know exactly what she's doing!

"Aimee Spinks is everything an actor needs for their headshots. She helps discover what works best for you for your shoot, whether that be through character work or the technical aspects of how to feel and look comfortable in front of a camera. Aimee's knowledge of backgrounds and colouring is exceptional, as well as her ability to adapt to when the lighting changes (In my case, the sun coming in and out during our outdoor shoot). She even adapted to a bunch of guys walking into our shoot asking for a picture without missing a beat. Couldn't be happier." - Zachary Paul Lawrence

This is Aimee working her magic! " - Oakley Flanagan

"My daughter Tessa has never had professional actor head shots done before. Within minutes of meeting Aimee, she was laughing, relaxed and completely trusted her.

The final headshots have exceeded our hopes and we are all delighted with them. Thanks for a wonderful experience." - Lisa Morris

"I had a fantastic time working with Aimee. Easy going, fun, and totally ready to adapt to your needs. Whenever I had any ideas Aimee was really happy to go with them and work with me to find a headshot we were both happy with. She made me feel really comfortable and relaxed, and we had a good laugh during the shoot. I got edited versions of my chosen headshots just two days after the shoot, and they are looking fantastic. Brilliant value for money, you just can't go wrong!" - Ellie Rushton

"The great thing about Aimee is that, as well as getting great actor headshots, her number one priority is to show your personality through her photography and to get the best out of you, showing real life 'behind the eyes'. I learnt so much from just the one session for future reference and how to bring the best out of me towards a camera lens, which can be a daunting experience for most but Aimee makes you feel right at home. A talented artist and a lovely person! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" - Roddy Lynch

"I came to Aimee needing some very specific head shots, and was looking for a very particular look, and boy did I get them! As soon as I arrived it was clear Aimee knew exactly how to get the best out of me. Within 15 minutes, we were shooting and getting exactly what I needed. High quality head shots showing that little something behind the eyes! I am absolutely thrilled with the final product and Aimee is a delight to work with. In fact, there were some photos where I was smiling too much because we had such a laugh! Would not hesitate to use Aimee again, and would definitely recommend her! If anyone wants further information, feel free to contact me. Thank you Aimee!" - Torin Pocock

Thanks Aimee!" - Jaime Seal

"Went for my headshots today and she was just fab. She has so much knowledge and understanding of the acting industry and thus what I needed. Lovely shots capturing a variety of characters. She created scenarios for characters' expressions that I was portraying and the fact she is a lovely lady was the bonus. Worthy of all her success!" - Tiegan Rice

"Aimee is an expert in what she does, she's incredibly creative and she genuinely made the shoot a really fun process. Her enthusiasm and positivity really helped me to relax and be myself in the shoot which made my headshot seem genuine and natural. She is able to get round pretty much any sort of problem. (I usually have a lazy eye on photos so she used clever ways of shooting so my right eye looked normal, I don't even know how she did this but she did!). The only difficult thing about the shoot was choosing the final headshots. Actually that wasn't difficult at all because she gave great advice in which one's to choose. I'd seriously recommend Aimee for anyone looking fora Birmingham headshot photographer!!!" - Matthew Socci

We ended up with nearly 300 photos all of which I would have chosen! Aimee helped us whittle these down, til we chose 10 of the best.

Aimee is an expert in her craft and the only difficult thing is actually choosing which photos to use. I really do think around 80% of over 250 photos would have made a fantastic headshot, so getting down to my final 6 was very interesting.
