FAQs - Sam Taylor


Hello! I’m Sam, originally from Yorkshire, but I’ve been in London for the last fifteen years. I trained as an actor, but now work as a photographer taking headshots of performers, portraits of business people, and production shots for theatre, film and TV. I am the Unit Stills Photographer for 'Sex Education' (Netflix) and I am Photographer in Residence at LAMDA.

Where are you?

I have a base in both London and York - sessions are available in both locations.

How long does a headshot session last? 

As long as it takes us to get something we’re both happy with! We’ll usually spend around 90 minutes together. 

How many photos will I get?

I’ll prepare and touch-up your four favourite images for you. They are available in both colour and black and white. Extra images also available for £15 per image.

Inside or outside?

I always work outside because I love natural light. The areas I use are all covered so we can work whatever the weather.

What should I bring?

A selection of different tops that will give us some options. Different neck lines, colours - we’ll pick our favourites on the day. It’s good to bring some dark options as well as colourful ones, and a black t-shirt/jumper is always a great way to start.

Can I change my clothes/hair/have a shave during the session?

Of course!

How much do you charge?

£240 per session. £220 for students. This includes the session, a private gallery on my website of the best shots (usually around 100 images), and touch-ups of the four you select.

How do I pay?

Either bring me cash on the day or I can invoice you when I send your gallery.

Where can I get info about your rehearsal and production rates?

I tailor individual packages to make sure you get exactly the right solution, so just get in touch and let me know what you need.

Has your work been featured anywhere?

Yes! I am proud to say that my photos have been featured in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Hollywood Reporter, The Guardian, The Times, The BBC, The Australian, The Independent, Cosmopolitan, Refinery 29, Entertainment Weekly, The Radio Times, The Financial Times, The Evening Standard, The Stage, Time Out, What's On Stage, Gay Times, Brides Up North, The English Wedding Blog, and Offbeat Bride.
