Claire is fantastic, can't praise her enough. Having gone to four or five other people in the past, the session I had with Claire was a completely different experience. With a thorough and detailed consultation session before you even start shooting, I ended up with a huge selection of shots I could use. She's also a really lovely lady too and makes the whole experience an enjoyable one. Won't be going to any other photographers in the future.

Highly recommend Claire Grogan. Amazing photographer = amazing shots. Claire cares about you and your headshots and knows how to bring 'you' out!! Lovely woman!!! Thanks!

Kylie Vilcins


From the shoot perspective, she kept it light hearted, made me relax quite quickly (no easy feat) and made the experience a hugely positive one. Hurrah for Claire's Bush! On the results: smashing clear photos showing the range of looks I hoped for that I'm still incredibly happy with three years on.

Michael Bagwell


I cannot recommend Claire enough - she's just brilliant. Not only did she direct me throughout to achieve different moods and looks but also helped on styling and make-up. And, most important, she produced so many fantastic shots from the studio as well as the 2 outdoor areas that I was spoilt for choice in terms of my final selection. Hurrah for Claire!

Meryl Griffiths


Claire is an exceptional photographer. She instantly made me feel at ease throughout the shoot and made the whole experience memorable.

Dominic Chambers


It's a rare pleasure to have your photo taken by Claire Grogan. She combines a wealth of professional experience with warmth and understanding. She knows just how to balance advice born of years in the industry with letting you find your own authentic images. Plus she is able to turn what is for some of us a highly stressful activity into great fun!

Maureen Casey


Fantastic photographer. Not just great headshots, but supportive, creative, and relaxing!

Erin Geraghty


There is a reason why so many of the biggest names in the profession go back to Claire for their headshots again and again, whose work speaks for itself. Claire is a lovely person and knows just how to make you feel completely at ease so you get the most out of your headshot.

Andrew Lancaster


I always get my headshots done with Claire Grogan. She spends so much time getting to know you and want you want and you never feel rushed. She knows how to get the best out of you and the results are always fantastic.

Ruth Clarke Irons


Claire is an absolutely brilliant photographer. My session was incredibly relaxed and fun which means we got some great shots. Claire really knows her stuff and gives excellent advice and support throughout. I will never have my photos taken by anyone else now!

Shelly Bentley


Claire Grogan's Shoot was fantastic. She did not rush you and spent a great deal of time getting the looks you wanted. She even helped with make up! An extremely professional and fun shoot which I would highly recommend to anyone looking for new headshots. I am thrilled with my headshots and can't wait to have them done again.

A fantastically experienced photographer who takes real pains to understand/help you understand what you are after from the session and produces great results.

A great pleasure to work with - Claire can relax even the most tense of subjects!

Kerrie Taylor


Fantastic photographer- my friend said of my pic "This is extraordinary. I say this because I know you so well and she has absolutely captured you here."

Anna Ziman


I had the most brilliant and relaxed shoot with Claire and I am extremely happy with the wide range of photographs. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone, especially character actors who need to look like they really do. She is honest and direct, very funny and brilliant to work with.

Ruth Calin


Claire is absolutely great at capturing your personality and your acting range. I love my photo experience with her.

Tonia Daley Campbell


Claire is amazing. Takes her time and makes every shot count.

Richard Cunningham


I was extremely impressed with Claire's approach to the shoot, from start to finish she was welcoming and made you feel completely at ease. She really wants to get to know you in order to produce the best pictures possible. Professional yet personal.

Elizabeth Oliver-Kirk


Claire Grogan is without doubt an amazing photographer who knows how to put you at ease and enjoys her job immensely. The passion she has for her work and also for 'our' profession is there to see and this comes shining through during your shoot. Claire used to tread the boards herself and can relate to actors and what they are looking for with that great headshot. As someone who is very insecure with his looks, I cannot praise her enough. I enjoyed my 'shoot' and I would never have thought before we met. I have made a friend for life and will use Clare time and time again. You couldn't ask to meet a nicer person, well you might, but she is a one in a million, trust me.

Martin Rossen


In my experience Claire's photographic sessions are wonderfully relaxed which combined with Claire's creative and technical expertise produce great and varied shots.

Jan Hirst


What a fantastic session. Claire made me feel so comfortable and relaxed during our day. Got some great shots and didn't feel at all rushed, taking time to discuss what would make the best images. Fantastic aftercare too with great comms post-session and even a lovely cuppa and a biscuit during my visit! Heartily recommended.

Mark Slowey


A session with Claire is an event to remember. I'll treasure the memory of the day...as I do the pictures. She has rare insight...and is, to my mind, simply the best portrait/headshot photographer in town!

Michelle Archer


Wonderful, relaxed and friendly experience, I felt free to really express without the worry of being self-conscious. Highly recommended!!

Mandy-Jane Jackson


Claire is amazing. I have never had so many photos that I like and that show me in different characters. I would highly recommend her.

Kathy Trevelyan


Brilliant & Lovely. Best photographer I have ever worked with in my 20 years as professional. And great value too.

Charlie Buckland


Claire has a natural ability. She instinctively knows how to capture the sparkle in your eye. It's only afterwards when she sighs and has a cuppa that you realise she's actually been working hard!

Stuart Packer


Wonderful photographer who made the whole thing as comfortable as possible. This is coming from someone who doesn't like having their picture taken.It didn't feel like a piece of business, she welcomed me into her home as if it was a long lasting friendship. Very happy with the results.

Francis Cremona


This is the 3rd time I have been back to Claire in the last 2 years; mainly because I trust her 100%! Her photographs are stunning and I have never been disappointed. I only have good praise for her.

Rosie Thorpe


Claire is a wonderful photographer. She tailors he sessions to each individual. She spent 4 hours putting me at ease and helping me with my make-up and clothes. She made me feel incredibly comfortable which is no mean feat as I dislike having my photo taken. I highly recommend her.

Kerrie Gooderson


My most relaxed and rewarding session of 5 in 10 years. Claire instantly put me at ease and suggested a variety of looks/outfits in advance and locations on the day. Touched up my blemishes beforehand and was encouraging throughout the session. Also happy to offer advice and opinion of shot choices after the session on her own time, frank and honest. In short a thoroughly enjoyable session with great results.

Graham Morris-Almond


Claire Grogan has taken my last two headshots and I will return to her again as the whole experience is always a joy and the end results fantastic!

Kate Bell


I thoroughly enjoyed my session with Claire. She did not hurry me and took the time to get to know me and to really put me at my ease. I found the process of having the photos taken much more relaxing than usual. This is because she exuded positivity and also made me laugh! The fact she took both interior and exterior shots was a real bonus. She was very professional in her advice as to different looks I should offer. She also took time to advise me after the shoot, as to what photos I should have repro-ed. My agent has commented most favourably on the photos and I really believe that they will get me work, so many thanks to Claire!

Kate Glover



Claire Grogan's Shoot was fantastic. She did not rush you and spent a great deal of time getting the looks you wanted. She even helped with make up!

Alicia Bennett

I always use Claire Grogan for my Spotlight headshots. Her work is superb. In December 2014: six different looks, six different characters, all within a 3 hour shoot. I always recommend her to anyone who needs a great headshot.

I’ve been acting for ten years now and I have had my headshots taken by many photographers. Claire is by far the best photographer I have worked with, she makes you feel relaxed and really brings out the best in your photos. She was worth every penny and because of this my photo has got me many castings. One word....brilliant!

Claire Grogan has this knack of achieving brilliant photos and it must be due to her 'at ease' atmosphere and a clear idea of direction and years of experience. Would recommend to all and sundry!!!
