I,m often asked for Actors Headshot Photography. Actors need a Spotlight entry or general PR shots. Brendan Coyle is a favourite. I believe he is one of the UK’s finest actors. And due to Brendan success as Mr Bates in ITV’s Downton Abbey, the rest of the world can see his work too. Like many professional Actors he is relaxed in front of the camera. This makes my portrait photography session fun. Brendan can easily bring the same intensity and focus to stills. And time on our side we can try lots of set-ups. Every male actor I,ve met, wants the classic Brando “cigarette” shot. I love the one we captured with Brendan.
I thought I’d share a few favourites I,ve taken of him over the years .
Brendan will be starring in Mojo this Autumn alongside Ben Whishaw & Rubert Grint. The production opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 13 November 2013. Having seen Brendan on stage in several productions, if you are a theatre fan, don’t miss him, you’ll be in for a treat.
