Sheila is a London-based theater photographer who specialises in headshots. She is an approved member of APHP, having joined in October 2016 and has over 25 years experience as a photographer.
Before becoming a headshot photographer, Sheila trained as an actor at Birmingham School of Art. When touring, for over ten years, with the Pip Simmons Theatre Group, she discovered her passion for photography. She started taking pictures of the performers during various tours and activities.
Sheila is happy on location as well as in a studio. She combines natural and tungsten lighting although she prefers constant lighting over strobes as they produce the same light used in theatre and TV studios. She also provides images in colour and black and white shooting purely in the digital domain.
In her own words.
“I have had 25 years experience taking actors headshots including well-known actors from theater, film, and TV, along with radio, TV presenters, musicians, writers and students from most of the leading drama schools in London and across the UK.
