I have nothing but good things to say about Colin and his work. From the phone call beforehand, to arriving and all the way through until the end, his expertise and personality made for a comfortable and enjoyable experience throughout. This guy is a true artist and his love for his work is beautiful to see! Thanks again Colin. More...
I cannot put into words how wonderful my headshot experience with Colin and Rebecca was. They both made me feel so comfortable and welcome and the end result show this perfectly. Colin has produced such a wonderful, professional portfolio and has provided me with exactly what I need for the next step of my career. I highly recommend Colin's headshots and the experience wouldn't be complete without adding in Rebecca's wonderful hair and makeup package. Thank you again Colin and Rebecca. More...
I hate having my picture taken but Colin is a true Manc, and that's probably what warmed me to the experience of getting my headshots done with him to begin with. After meeting for an initial consultation in which Colin prepared me very well for the photoshoot, I went in on a Saturday for a 3 hour shoot. I was greeted by two of the loveliest professional people I could hope to work with. Rebecca and Colin work very well as a team to make you feel comfortable and get the best out of the 4 looks you go with for the 'Get Ahead' package. I never once felt that I was not being looked after and it was the comfort I was put at that I think achieved great looks and fantastic photographs that are so good that it's impossible to pick just 4! A great place to get started with stunning results for your acting portfolio. I would highly recommend these guys! More...

Loved my headshot session with Colin and Chelsea ! What lovely, down to earth professional people ! I had so much fun on my shoot and Colin makes you feel instantly relaxed, he listened to what I needed and wanted and consulted me / showed me pictures back at every opportunity! They were looking amazing and anything I didn't like i was given the option to adjust ! I didn't feel rushed in anyway felt so at ease and everything is done to perfection! Thank you both for such a fun shoot and I cannot wait to see the results ! More...
I want to say from the get go Colin had been fab! From the moment of booking til the moment I left! He is fantastic and a perfectionist! Puts you at ease and gets you a myriad of versatile looks for your headshots! I also had my hair and make up done by the gifted @RebeccaTupman. She managed to create so many looks in such a short space of time! I Would URGE anyone looking for headshots to book her and what a lovely lady on top of that! I cannot recommended this pair highly enough! What an enjoyable experience and I can't wait to see the final product!
Thanks a mil Colin and Rebecca I hope to work with you again in the future � More...
Thanks for all your help Colin!
Right from the start, Colin's approach to gaining the best headshots is second to none!
Colin's professionalism and expertise came through immediately, with the time he spent days before the shoot, discussing what styles best suits you, what your aims are and which particular niche in acting you're looking for.
Colin is a true talent to his trade, I would highly recommend him to anybody wanting first class headshots, also he was great to work with, from start to finish everything was very relaxed.
I found him a genuinely nice guy, whose passion for getting the best results for you shows. More...
I very highly recommend Colin and would go back to him again in the furture whenever my headshots need redoing!
I was a little nervous, always am having new headshots done but as soon as i saw Colin his infectious smile instantly had me at ease!
He helped me choose which outfits to wear, and was always making sure i was ok with what he was suggesting, which was great, all his attention on me and making sure everything was best for me.
I love how much of a perfectionist he is! lighting was perfect and the backgrounds suited each shot.
I loved all my photos took me ages to narrow it down to 4, I'm super happy about the 4 I've chose and can't wait to start showing the creative world the new me!
Thank you so much!!! More...
Finally!! I’ve found an amazing headshot photographer. Colin is AMAZING. So much time and effort went into my shots. He has a passion for lighting and photography and that really shows from the shoot and more importantly, from the pictures. We had such a laugh too which really helped. Lighting is so important and he has a way of seeing things that most other photographers oversee! I was so impressed. Thanks Colin! Can’t recommend you enough. I’ll be back for more. x More...
Where do you start.... Colin is an absolute delight to work with!
From the initial conversation when booking through to yesterdays insanely amazing shoot Colin oozes charisma and wit! He has a great ability to put you at ease and make the shoot a pleasant experience. His attention to detail is impeccable and that is definitely what makes him stand out from other photographers.
My second shout out goes to the outstanding make up artist Rebecca Tupman- what an artist she is! She helped me create four contrasting but striking looks and I could not be any more grateful.
Actors there is nobody else around that offers this first class service- Neilson Reeves Photography all the way!
Thank you! More...
From the off, Colin made the whole experience easy. Having never had my headshots taken before, I had no clue what to expect. We spoke on the phone beforehand and he put me at ease; like an approachable professional. You know you’re in safe hands when a photographer spends a good 20 minutes setting up more lights than the Blackpool Illuminations. He cares about his work, isn’t driven by money and doesn’t rush. Colin puts as much passion into his craft as we do as actors. This really shows in the final shots. I’m excited to show them off. More...
The whole experience from start to finish was top quality. I had previously explained during the consultation period what my agent required and Neilson Reeves got it spot on.
The Make up was subtle and was provided by Rebecca Tupman. Again, this girl knows her stuff!! They work really well as a team and it shows.
If you need headshots then for me, this is the guy you need. You WILL NOT find a better photographer, makeup artist or set up.
I will be posting pics of the final headshots soon!! More...
I enjoyed working with Colin and that’s what it felt like we were working together. We collaborated to achieve a set of headshots that conveys me. I am happy with what Colin has captured through his lens. His understanding of light and composition has helped me show who I am as an actor and the diversity I can express with just my facial expression and intention. He has also helped me feel a bit more comfortable with still photography, next time I am going to try and enjoy it a bit more! More...
Such a fun shoot with Colin, and so brilliant to have Chelsea there too for make up and hair. Felt really relaxed, catered for and just had a laugh too. Highlight was Colin's music soundtrack.. worked a treat. Really chuffed with the final outcome, and really recommend. More...

The Word "Photographer" Is not enough to explain to you how fantastic this mans work is !
Colins eye for detail and creativity with in the shot just blew my mind, Not only that, I also felt extremely relaxed and comfortable I didn't feel Like i was having "Headshots" taken it didn't feel like a rigid chore. It felt like a breeze and I genuinely enjoyed the overall day and felt I got the best headshots and work out of this session because of collins precision, personality and professional nature! Thanks again so much Coll, I am so grateful !! More...
Magnificent, right off the bat.
Colin greeted me with a warm, comforting embrace & immediately alleviated any worries or concerns I may have, by default placing me in a feeling of peace & excitement. What we created was nothing short of a masterpiece, and that’s without mentioning the razor sharp jawline (self indulgent, deal with it)
I required the best of the best, pictures that would compel & capture the imagination. A second glancer, work that would not only intrigue you, but leave you staring longingly, mesmerised at the quality.
This man knocked it out the park, with the invaluable help of beautiful Chelsea, they both spearheaded a day filled with enlightenment, joy and most importantly, dazzling photography work. Thank you Colin, it was a dream. More...
I always find headshot sessions to be a chore but Colin creates such a welcoming atmosphere with his positive and friendly attitude that it makes it impossible not to enjoy.
I visited Colin 3 years ago and in the year that I used those photos I had more castings and more job bookings that year than in the entire 4 years I have been working in the industry.
This time, I also opted for the hair and make up package which I can’t recommend enough! Chelsea was so lovely and absolutely brilliant. It completely erased any worries at all that I usually have on headshot days and felt more like another day on set. I will not be going anywhere else from now on!
Thank you Colin and Chelsea More...
A massive thank you to Colin and Rebecca for my shiny new headshots! Both of them together worked their incredibly perfectionist eye to create flawless images. They made me feel comfortable in their presence from the outset and made me miss the happy and down to earth spirit of the North. Never for a second did either of them lose me from their focus and making me look and feel great. A great day for both me and Mum. Top recommendations from me Thank you both xxx More...
Really loved my session today getting headshots! Was made to feel so welcome! Would highly recommend! Couldn't of gone better and was completely at ease. Thank you for such a lovely shoot can't wait to see the photos. Chelsea Graziano did my hair and make up and was the most loveliest girl with insane talent! Definitely recommend booking the hair and make up with your package... she works wonders with a brush! More...
My shoot with colin was amazing not only did he manage to completely put me at ease in the first five minutes, he made he throughly enjoy the session right the way through to the end. Colin is a perfectionist when it comes to the shots, which is great for us because theyre our photos! Colin has gained a customer for life as I simply wouldn’t want go anywhere else now, and will strongly recommmend him to anyone looking to the great shots done and stand out on Spotlight. More...
Thank you Colin for a great experience and some amazing photos!!
The environment Colin provides is very relaxing as hes very friendly, he helps you pick out your outfits, which backgrounds are best and also lights you perfectly :) He's certainly a perfectionist guiding you along the shoot to get your face on the best angle and create the perfect headshot. It was an extremely fun session with fabulous results.. I loved all the photos! Can 100% say it was hard to decide.
Also thanks to Rebecca for my hair and makeup which made me feel and look great.
Highly Recommended. More...

Colin is extremely talented and makes you feel completely at ease. I'm delighted with the end product and I wouldn't use anyone else to take my team headshots again.
I have looked at Colin's work for years and admired it, his work is truly stunning. This may sound ridiculous, but he captures your soul in the lens. I honestly don’t know how he does it! The recent shoot I had was a pleasure and he is my go to guy from here on out. I cannot recommend Colin enough not only is he an amazing photographer, but he is someone I am proud to call a friend. More...
Colin and Rebecca were brilliant. I'm so nervous when getting head shots done and both put me at ease. Very relaxing morning. Was able to see some of the shots along the way and they looked great. Thank you again. More...
Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Colin. I felt completely relaxed throughout the session due to Colin being so personable and understanding of exactly what I wanted from the shoot. Also Rebecca the make up artist was great from start to finish. Would highly recommend. More...
Not only an amazing photographer, but a great guy to work with. I really enjoyed shooting with Colin, he is very skilled and professional. I would highly recommend! Great results and the headshots are fabulous quality, thank you Colin! More...
I am a man of few words but all I am going to say is if you want the best then go and see Colin. The guy is a f***ing genus.
I am extremely pleased with the quality of my actor headshots, Colin made me feel completely at ease and the whole day was a fun experience. I would highly recommend!

Chuffed to bits with my new headshots! Had a right giggle with Colin and Rebecca from start to finish on the shoot day, with both making me feel very much like it was my shoot - all working together to get the best of what I wanted from my pictures. In all honesty I had my reservations about booking in for hair and make up, as recommended by Colin, but Rebecca Tupman managed to create 4 completely contrasting looks, something I've never managed to achieve on my own at a headshot shoot before. Again, I was given control each step of the way, with both Colin and Rebecca making sure I was happy with everything! My only criticism is that I couldn't choose which final shots to go with - I love them all! And if nothing else, I'd book in again tomorrow for the banter! Thanks again guys! x More...

I am extremely pleased with the quality of my actor headshots, Colin made me feel completely at ease and the whole day was a fun experience. I would highly recommend!
I really enjoyed my shoot with Colin, he makes you feel at ease the moment you walk into the room. Colin helped me feel comfortable and truly have fun whilst working and being productive. The experience was made even better with the help of make-up artist Rebecca Tupman who I couldn’t praise more. As a team, both Colin and Rebecca created and produced great photos which I couldn’t be happier with.
Colin really makes every effort to get to know you and understand what you want out of the shoot. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough! Thanks Colin and Rebecca! More...
I had the best morning with Colin taking my new headshots! I've never exactly been a fan of having my photo taken, but he put me at ease straight away and made me feel really good about myself and what I was doing! It was like hanging out with a mate and I could have easily stayed all day! I haven't seen the proofs yet, but Colin showed me the photos on his camera throughout the shoot so that I could see how it was going. I enjoyed the whole experience so much and would absolutely recommend Colin and the 'Get Ahead' Package to anyone! And it wouldn't be complete without Rebecca's wonderful hair and make up which made me look better than I could ever have believed! Thanks so much guys - I wish I could give more stars! More...
Really enjoyed my experience here, Colin was so welcoming and helps you feel really relaxed for the shoot. Really chatty and interesting and also makes sure you're happy about the process and how the shots are looking as you're doing them which is so helpful and something I've not had in past photographers. Looking forward to seeing the results but with his attention to detail and hard work I feel really confident. Can't recommend him highly enough! More...
Had a fabulous day with Colin Boulter getting my headshots done. Both Colin and the lovely Chelsea Graziano doing my hair and make up were a pleasure to work with. I felt really at ease from the get go. We had a laugh, a good old chat and the whole experience was effortless and comfortable with some great tunes in the background. Colin has a real talent for creating great shots and providing direction. A fabulous collaborative experience, thank you. More...
My experience with Colin was incredible. Not only does he have the ability to put you at complete ease if you are feeling nervous. His sheer wizardry with the camera and lighting bring out the very best in you. The magic is completed with the wonderful talents of make up artist Rebecca, who brings your features to life.
Their patience generosity and goodwill made this a truly memorable experience.
Thank you. You are a fab team.

We had Colin over to take headshots for the whole sales team, as well as some corporate portraits of our CEO. Colin made the whole experience something fun instead of something awkward and painful like with other photographers. Our CEO is notoriously hard to please when it comes to photos of himself, and these are the first that I have seen him genuinely like. Will definitely be back to Colin for our future needs. More...
The quality of Colin's service was second to none!His enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge, whilst partnered with an amazing attitude and great personality, made for an incredible shoot. He made me feel more than comfortable with the fact that this was my first ever head shot session which allowed for a productive and, above all else, enjoyable experience.I would recommend Colin to anyone, be it an actor who's just starting out from Drama School/University or an experienced performer. 5 stars. Thanks again, Colin!Tom Cavendish. More...
