Aimee is an excellent photographer and a very friendly person. I am delighted with my headshots and would recommend Aimee without hesitation.

Aimee is great and I would recommend her to anyone looking for headshots, I had a bad experience with another photographer before finding Aimee and she did not disappoint. She walks you through everything and makes you feel completely at ease, so glad I went to her for my headshots. More...

Another great head-shot session with Aimee. Last time we were indoors but this time, outside at Cannon Hill Park. Aimee's great at putting you at your ease and really getting the best out of you. I had my time, but it never felt rushed or on the clock and she made sure we had the time to go through the shots together over a coffee and select the best ones. Great professionalism, great personal attention. These are the best shots I've had yet and I'll be back for more when they need updating. More...

I had my headshots taken by Aimee last Thursday and I can honestly say it was the most relaxed I've ever felt having headshots done. Aimee is super friendly and personable and so easy to get on with during a session. Her directional advice was so helpful and her honestly and artistic eye was amazing when we sat down afterwards to choose my photos. I recommend Aimee 100% and would definitely book with her again in the future! More...

I can say this will full honesty, i'm not going to anyone else for headshots! Safe to say I was nervous, I'd never done a headshot shoot before. But Aimee made me feel relaxed and welcome. She talked me through everything that would happen in the shoot and made me feel comfortable, and just allowed me to have fun. Everything you see in my headshots was brought out by Aimee and I can't thank her enough. And the best part about the day was definitely Aimee, her skills as a photographer are nothing compared to who she is as a person. If you're looking for headshots and you've had them done several before or you've never had them done at all, go to Aimee. I know i'm going to recommend everyone I know! Thank you so much, Aimee!

Aimee is an expert in what she does, she's got such a professional attitude but at the same time knows how to create a relaxing, stress-free atmosphere so you can be yourself and fully enjoy the experience. She gives many helpful tips as she knows what looks best on the camera and you'd never be sorry for trusting her judgement! More...

I needed some headshots. I looked at the work of local photographers before making a choice and Aimee's work was head-and-shoulders above the rest (forgive the pun? ). Receiving a quick response after I had sent an email enquiry, I booked a slot at the earliest possible date, which Aimee was later able to make sooner due to a cancellation.

When I arrived on location I felt instantly comfortable and at ease. After the shoot we sat down together and looked at the resulting images. Having worked on many productions, Aimee was able to make informed suggestions if I was struggling to choose between photos.

I am extremely satisfied with the headshots I received and the process involved. Although pricier than some photographers in the Birmingham area (and rightly so), I would recommend Aimee to anyone without hesitation and will be returning in the future.

Had such a fantastic experience working with Aimee! I was feeling pretty nervous about getting my first set of headshots done, but she put me at ease straight away. I felt more and more comfortable and confident as the session progressed, and with her great guidance and advice I ended up with some brilliant shots that I love! Also loved her ways of helping you access different vibes for different looks, which ultimately made a potentially nerve-wracking experience really fun! Would definitely recommend and hope to work with her again in the future! More...

I couldn't be happier with my new headshots from Aimee Spinks. I've never had such an effortless, enjoyable, and professional session as this. Aimee is an expert in her craft and the only difficult thing is actually choosing which photos to use. I really do think around 80% of over 250 photos would have made a fantastic headshot, so getting down to my final 6 was very interesting. From expert advice on what to wear, to tips on what casting directors are looking for, this is a service which ticks all the boxes. Thanks Aimee, my Spotlight and Imdb profiles are looking better than ever! More...

Absolutely loved working with Aimee. She is friendly, fun and professional. I felt so guided throughout the session, and also afterward when choosing which shots to use. Her expert advice is astounding, and so essential. She really knows her stuff and is so encouraging - I came away with a fresh burst of energy and motivation, for which I'm so grateful. Aimee has a magical way of capturing expressions and drawing out personality traits that you wouldn't even know you possessed! If you're hesitating about getting your actor headshots done, like I was at first, don't, just do it! Go to Aimee. More...

I had a photoshoot with Aimee about a month ago and the results were fantastic! We had a great morning working together and she is very approachable and lively to help you feel comfortable and at ease.
She is so lovely to work with and she is patient when going through all the shots afterwards. Aimee will direct you through the shoot and give advice if needed to help you fill your goal in what you are trying to achieve.
I got my chosen photos back within the day which is a brilliant turnaround as she did need to do some editing.
I will be definitely use her skills again in the future!

It was a pleasure working on my headshots today With Miss Amiee Spinks! She made me feel so safe and comfortable which in turn delivered fantastic results and really got the best out of me. Amiee asks you what best suits your casting type and tailors the session around your needs. She offers great coaching if needed to capture the desired shot and provides much needed counsel when scrolling through the endless shots to get the perfect headshots for you. Lovely down to earth person and worth the investment! Thankyou Amiee More...

Aimee is a fantastic photographer and an exceptional person. She is very easy to work with and was really quick at returning my edited photographs. I'm not usually comfortable in front of a camera but Aimee made the whole experience effortless. She has a lovely, natural way of directing even a difficult client like myself to get the most out of the shoot. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the experience.

Also, I must add that I lost my phone on the day and Aimee went back outside in the cold to look for it which shows what a lovely person she is.

Thank you Aimee!

I had the pleasure of working with Aimee when she photographed my acting headshots. Aimee was easy, fast and reliable when arranging the session and was no different on the shoot. She paid great attention to detail when discussed exactly how I wanted my headshots to come across to casting professionals. She also gave me her experienced professional opinion to help guide me, she took a range of shots that showcased my different playing ages and characters. She was particularly knowledgeable and gave easy and helpful direction when taking the pictures. Her own knowledge of the industry as a photographer was evident when we had to narrow the photos down to the final selection. Aimee was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend her.

Not because her work has changed but because the way she has coached me through the shoots has meant I have!
