Informative and professional led workshops for drama institutions run by the APHP

Education is at the heart of the APHP: we've pooled our members' unrivalled headshot knowledge, to deliver impartial headshot workshops for drama schools allowing their students to make the right headshot choices now, and throughout their careers.


Our workshops last approx 1.5 hrs



  • The basics on how to prepare for a headshot session -  hair, clothing, and makeup.

  • Choosing your photographer and elements to be aware of.

  • Exploring your headshot as a marketing tool and preparing a brief for your shoot



  • An in-depth look at the place of headshots in the current environment, and their importance in modern casting.

  • What makes a good headshot? The best way to by critical and select your final choices from your shoot 

  • Technical breakdown of which type of files you need for web/printing use



  • Understanding how and where headshots are used in the casting process.

  • Current and future trends of headshots

  • The use of a portfolio of shots for casting purposes

The growing pressure on actors to manage their brand and their professional promotional portfolio has never been greater. And the range of high-quality photographers and styles available has never been so varied. 


Our workshops are led by two established headshot professionals, whom cover every aspect of headshots and self promotion as an actor, giving a practical

demonstration on how a great headshot can help the actor achieve an

advantage over others in the casting process.


“An invaluable workshop, seamlessly organised and brilliantly delivered.”
