About Steve Lawton
20 Years Experience
Hi there, I'm Steve Lawton and I've been shooting headshots for actors, performers, businesses and professionals for 20 years.
Capturing the qualities that make you unique
I love my job and whether you're a star, working actor, student, or professional, I aim to work with you to produce headshots that you will be completely happy with, that sells you and captures the very qualities that makes you unique.
My aim is to produce both a great headshot and a beautiful image in its own right which shares the secret of your inner self, connecting and drawing the viewer in.
A great headshot is like a great close up, you keep coming back to it: engaging, open, fascinating but above all truthful.

creating drama through light and location
I shoot at an atmospheric Central London location and love incorporating the ever changing seasonal light to create compelling, revealing and totally natural images. Unlike most studio based photographers who are limited to the same basic set-ups, my images are always unique on the day*. Click here to see a selection of my images.

I shoot corporate headshots for organisations and professionals, including c-suite executives, bankers, consultants, entrepreneurs, barristers, journalists, and surgeons - all of whom require a warm, honest and reassuring image that resonates with their clients.
