"Aimee was absolutely brilliant to work with and after an incredibly quiet period in terms of auditions, my new headshots from Aimee Spinks have only been on my Spotlight page for two days and I have already got an audition for a really exiting new role!"
- Bethany-Antonia Clarke
"I applied for an audition in London with this hideous photo I was using to supplement a professional headshot until I got one and they hadn't replied. After I got your headshots and sent them to them they gave me an audition ten minutes later! Thank you Aimee!"
- Oakley Flanagan
"My daughter Tessa has never had professional head shots done before. Within minutes of meeting Aimee, she was laughing, relaxed and completed trusted her. Aimee was able to give Tess help to think about the characters she would like to portray in the future and how to express this in a subtle way. The photos have exceeded our hopes and we are all delighted with them. Thanks for a wonderful experience."

So you’re looking for an actor headshot photographer in Birmingham? Great! You’ve come to the right place! My name is Aimee Spinks and I specialise in working with actors; whether it’s on set shooting stills of you guys in action or during one to one actor headshot photography sessions.
With over 7 years of experience, I have worked closely with Birmingham School of Acting, The Theatre Workshop, Birmingham Conservatoire as well as provided actor headshots to actors from all over the UK.
When I’m not working with actors to get the best out of their headshots, I can be found on set of feature film and TV productions, taking the photos that promote it. Over the years I have worked on productions including ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ and ‘Ex Machina,’ and with actors including Samuel L. Jackson, Eddie Redmayne and Mila Kunis.
Why book me for your actor headshots?
Actor headshot photography is a very particular specialism: it requires a very specific approach with a solid understanding of industry expectations. Your actor headshots are a marketing investment to help you get the work you want, and both casting directors and Spotlight have very strict expectations that must be adhered to. This is where makeover/portrait studios and general photographers fall down. Yes, it may be cheaper but it will be a complete waste of money if you are left with images that don’t tick the boxes of industry professionals.
By booking your actor headshot photos with me, you are getting more than just a photoshoot: you are getting 7 years of experience working with a plethora of actors, each with different casting types, experience and abilities that require a unique approach. You are getting the knowledge of someone who can tell you the current trends in actor headshot photography and what casting directors and Spotlight are looking for. I can advise you on what to wear and how to prepare for your session as well provide direction and physicality coaching for those unsure what to do in front of a photographer. On top of this, I have access to a range of locations including a fully equipped studio, as well as options for indoor and outdoor natural light looks for a variety of opportunities.
