Belfast Headshot Photographer

As a professional headshot photographer I take photos of people for many different reasons. Most often for websites, actors headshots, Corporate shots, publications and personal branding (social media). Typically I create headshots for businesses, creatives and professionals. Also I shoot location portraits, in clients homes, office/work sessions and of course in my Belfast  studio.

I work with a wide range of clients. From lawyers and actors, producers, professionals needing corporate images to musicians and also creatives in need of personal branding shots.

Your Belfast portrait photography session can take place in my studio or a location of your choosing. So every session is bespoke created to suit my client.

My Approach to Portraits

Nearly everyone I work with says “I hate having my photo taken”  at some point during our time together and so do I. It’s my job to make you hate it a little less, to in fact fall a little in love with your images. I love it when my clients leave saying “I actually had fun”.

Every portrait session I work is a little bit different. My clients are individuals with different needs. So some need lots of guidance and reassurance which I happily provide. For example, some need high energy and a bit of comedy (bantersaurus right here) and others need a relaxed slow paced session. Either way my Belfast headshot photographer sessions are stress free and fun.


Emma Gornall Photography Headshot sessions are relaxed and unpressured. They take place either in my Belfast studio, in work premises or outdoors.

Headshots are classic portraits, with good natural lighting, composition and expression. They will have some editing to remove spots or temporary blemishes, but will not be oversmoothed or fundamentally changed from the original. The aim is to get a striking and engaging photograph that really looks like you.

We will start with a chat and take breaks. If you’re unsure as to which poses or angles are most photogenic I will coach you as to how to sit and stand. Also I will give you direction as to what expressions work best and how to look and feel relaxed. But most importantly I create many different looks so you have a great variety of images to choose from.

You will be able to see what we are capturing as we go along and give feedback and suggestions. We work in collaboration, creating images that are professonal, modern and with a friendly ease.

Headshot sessions last approximately 1 hour. The session price is £75 and includes all post production work and a selection of 8 images in a mixture of colour and black and white.


So most people prepare for their headshots by making sure they are well rested and have had a recent haircut or hairstyle. I recommend bringing a good selection of ironed clothes, no logos or busy patterns. But don’t be afraid of colour!  Upon booking we can have a chat and answer any questions you may have.

If you would like to book or just to find out more please get in touch, because I want to take a picture of your face.
