2015 Oscars Winners

2015 BAFTA Results

Stephen Fry kicked off the 2015 BAFTA results and last night’s revelatons certainly kept the Oscar race exciting with hot favourite, Birdman, surprisingly only receiving one award for cinematographer Emmanuel Lubzeki.

These are two types of places it is vital to avoid when looking to get industry standard actor headshots and this is why….   Makeover Studios I know makeover studios all too well – I used to work in some at the very start of my photography career.
