In more detail:

Firstly thank you for checking out my website and clicking on the Bio section - I am guessing this means you wish to know a little more about who I am and my work - So here it goes...


I am a Headshot and Theatre/Events photographer based in the South West of England on the beautiful, sandy coast of Bournemouth. 

I first discovered my love for photography whilst training as a performer at Arts University Bournemouth (BA Hons Acting) shooting a variety of productions and beginning my photography journey.

I believe that having a love and passion for the industry (without the camera) and being a performer myself, helps greatly when working with clients, it also gives a fabulous starting point for conversation, what better way to spend time than with like-minded people who have a love for theatre and the arts.

For Rehearsals, Theatre/Events - I believe in capturing the moments of magic, freezing the action and keeping the raw emotion alive - creating a snapshot of moments that will last a lifetime.

For headshot sessions - I understand the apprehension some may have to get in-front of the camera, not playing a 'part' but showcasing you and so I provide a 'to-do' plan via email to help with any queries and worries before your session. 

I aim to use natural lighting for all Headshot sessions - weather dependent.

As we all know, English weather is not always guaranteed and unfortunately we don't live in a Mediterranean climate, so there is always the option to move indoors into the studio.

When you arrive, expect cups of tea/coffee, conversation and smiles.

I want to get to know you and what you want from your shoot so that we can work together to get the most out of the session (time will be given for you to change tops' and adjust make-up/hair). You will receive your final edits in both Colour and B&W and in range of crops all in the industry standard 10x8 image.

I am passionate about theatre and photography, creating that long lasting image that you and myself are proud of.

Looking for more? Do you have a production coming up and you are in need of a poster or show programme? Do you have film footage or vocal samples that are in need of editing together into a Show/Voice Reel? I would love to be collaborate so please do get in touch and we can chat through ideas.

On a personal note I have a beautiful Cavalier/Cocker spaniel mix dog, Chester. I also co-own a youth musical theatre school for students 4-18:

www.TheByt.com and teach private acting lessons for all ages with the option to take LAMDA exams (with a 100% pass rate).

I look forward to meeting and working with you.

All the best.

Emma Jayne
