More Customer Reviews

From the moment she opens her door to you to the moment you walk out you are greeted by a friendly, welcoming and professional photographer. Before, during and after the shoot everything is explained impeccably leaving no room for questions as she covers just about everything! Her positive persona instantly relaxes you and makes you feel at ease (especially if it’s your first photo shoot) regardless, her happy and cheerful disposition makes the whole experience enjoyable.


Jenny is fantastic just what you need. Warm and friendly atmosphere. She made me feel completely relaxed. Time genuinely flew by and was great to see Jenny invested in picking the best shots. A true professional and I can’t wait for the next session.


As this was my first experience at sitting for a professional headshot I was rather apprehensive but Jenny’s warm personality quickly put me at ease. The whole experience was very relaxed and there was never a feeling of being rushed. It was an altogether pleasurable experience and I would happily recommend Jenny to anyone looking for a professional headshot.


Jenny was great at making me feel relaxed in front of the camera and was very friendly. The make up I had was also done to a high standard to enhance the look of my photos and the headshots were emailed to me efficiently which i was impressed with. She talked me through a few tips for how to best use my headshots and on the day was a lot of fun to be around. Would recommend her!


Jenny was really great. Professional but relaxed environment and she delivered on the shots, providing great photographs that I can now send to my agent and use for castings. I would highly recommend.


Jenny has a big pleasant personality that puts you at ease immediately. The photoshoot is relaxed and unhurried, there’s no clock-watching. She genuinely wants to get the best results for you. We did a variety of shots and then reviewed them. There was the option to take more if I hadn’t got the results I was seeking but I was more than satisfied. Jenny’s perfectionist about the lighting etc, and works hard to catch you at your best angles. The most difficult part for me was choosing from the great selection afterwards, which is a testament to her skill. All in all a lovely lady and a great photographer!


Jenny was highly professional and made me feel very relaxed to get the best photos possible out of me. Jenny will not worry about the time, but only worry about getting that perfect shot, and will go through every photo with you afterwards to show you exactly what the best shots are for you. I highly recommend using Jenny as your head shot photographer!


What a pleasure this was.

I was initially quite uncomfortable at the prospect of having these photos done. I really should have had no fear. Jenny did a tremendous job at making me feel relaxed and at ease throughout (no small part due to her killer sense of humour), completely engaging me with scenarios to help bring out a range of expressions.

I am absolutely thrilled with the end result and would wholeheartedly recommend JGW Photography’s services to anyone.


Jenny was fantastic at my shoot last week. A very professional and friendly service. I love the fact that she really got the character out of me by giving me little scenarios and made me feel comfortable and welcome.

Jenny also has a professional make-up artist as part of the shoot and this is a real advantage, it’s important to get the right look for UK Actor headshots. These make Jenny a unique headshot photographer and the best I’ve been too. Highly recommend her, really happy with mine.


I had been admiring Jenny’s for some time, so when I chose her for my latest headshots I was not disappointed.

From the warm welcome and excellent rapport, Jenny instinctively knows how to get the best shots, the ones that will really stand out and get you noticed.

I was delighted with the finished shots, as was my agent.


Despite having had actor headshots previously, I was absolutely delighted with these – they are definitely my favourites so far.

Thanks so much Jenny, for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and a fantastic range of shots.

I’m hoping these will get the auditions rolling in! Will keep you posted. M x


I am immensely satisfied with the work that Jenny has done! She was a pleasure to work with and her vast experience in the field was readily apparent from the first conversation I had with her.

Apart from being an excellent photographer, she is also a wonderful person, whom will put you at ease and guide you through every step of the process to provide you with the very best.

I would certainly use her services again for future photography work, and would advise others to contact her and consider JGW Photography for their own head-shots.


Jenny made me feel completely at ease during the photo shoot, and the shots I was provided with were exactly what I was looking for.

I would certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to get a more engaging profile photo that captures their own unique personality.


Jenny’s work really speaks for itself! I am beyond chuffed with the results and I have received a lot of positive feedback so far!

Jenny really puts you at ease and really knows how to bring out your character in her shots. So much so, that I have attracted the attention of an agent and it looks very promising!

A very lovely lady and a pleasure to work with. If you need top-quality shots, then you would be doing yourself a disservice by not considering JGW Photography!

Jimi James – Actor

Sean James Lyons – Actor

I can’t recommend Jenny highly enough. She quickly put me at my ease, and we had an absolute blast.

I haven’t laughed so much in a long time.

And to top it all I come out of it with some superb photos.

A day very well spent.

Angus Drakeford – Actor

Thank you Jenny for taking some fabulous headshots of my client, Denny Hodge.

You have captured his personality and type perfectly and I have a range of photographs that will suit any casting breakdown.

I have already had some great feedback and know that these headshots will lead to some fantastic new work.

You are a very talented professional and I will not hesitate to recommend you to other actors.

Gillian Edwards (Agent) for Actor Denny Hodge

Not an experience I would nominally enjoy, but Jenny soon put me at ease and we had a fun afternoon.

She took lots of photos all of which were very good the problem was making a selection of the final 5 but with her help we got there and I have already had good feedback from agents.

I would highly recommend JGW Photography to anyone wanting high quality headshots.

Philip Mackley – Actor

Had a great time with Jenny at my recent headshot session. I was very pleased with the final shots and was very grateful for all the advice and guidance Jenny was able to offer before, during and after the session.


I would highly recommend using Jenny if you want a great headshot and will certainly be doing so myself next time!

Richard Comfort – Actor

Absolutely fantastic experience. Relaxed and comfortable environment which helped get the head shots I was hoping for. Amazing make up artist involved with the shoot. Couldn’t have wanted more from the day. Thank you very much.

Would highly recommend and would use again myself!

Kerry Sirrell – Actress

What an amazing, outstanding experience I had with Jenny for my headshots! In front of a camera filming I’m confident as can be, infront of a camera taking my picture I turn to jelly, but Jenny made me laugh so much that I could hardly breath and took my nerves away! I was comfortable relaxed and confident and that was all down to her! I know exactly who I am going back to for my headshots next year!

Her make up artist Diane is fantastic and made my make up look gorgeous and natural at the same time!

Couldn’t recommend her enough!! To all my friends this is the photographer to go too!!!

Kiah Reeves – Actress

Amazing headshots, really happy with the turn out! Jenny was welcoming and helped you relax in order to make you feel comfortable about expressing yourself in front of the camera, which is important because casting directors really want to see you!

We managed to agree on a selection of great headshots in what seemed like no time at all, really smooth process thanks!

Joey Gaten – Actor

Excellent photographer! My session was corporate photography. Jenny had the vision of what final result would be long before it became obvious to me.

This was my first professional headshot session and it was fun! We laughed (and I am a difficult one when it comes to smily photographs!) and the photos came out absolutely fantastic!

Jenny, you are a photo-genius!

The technical side of things was meticulous: from make-up to light and shadow – everything was organised and thought through.

I will not hesitate to recommend JGW to other colleagues of mine.

Anna Ibrahim – Russian Translater

I had a truly first-rate experience with Jenny. Not only did she and her brilliant make up artist Diana create a set of strong and highly professional headshots for me and work exceptionally hard to work with me to create photographs of Anne Boleyn to amazing results, but the whole service Jenny offers is second to none.

Her manner is one of genuine warmth and integrity, she is patient, thinks in such detail and has such knowledge, passion and creativity.

Whether you have years of experience or are just starting out, I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Ellie Ward – Actress

Jenny is an excellent and very thorough photographer.

She goes the extra mile to give the client exactly what they require from their headshots. As a professional actor of 30 years, I highly recommend Jenny and her work internationally.

Thank you Jenny.

Carl Wharton – Actor

First of all I would like to thank Jenny for her hospitality and making me feel very comfortable and prepping me to be in the right frame of mind and mood for the photo shoot.

Secondly coming to the professional side of things I thought Jenny was marvellous to work with and very unique in her vision and angles of how to get the best out of me with her direction along with her charisma during my photo shoot.

I would highly recommend her to anybody, particularly to actors because she really knows how to get the right look as far as the eyes go and facial expressions.

One last thing I just want to know Jenny when are you going to direct your first movie? because as well as being a talented photographer I think you’re ready for your first movie as well.haha

Kind regards, along with lots of hugs,

Jas Steven Singh – Actor

5 stars really does not give Jenny enough credit for today. I need 6! She is absolutely amazing at what she does… and what she does is get the utter best out of you as well as making you feel relaxed and at home.

She is so passionate and fun, that it is a joy to get your head shots done, and there are no sneaky surprises afterwards. I could not recommend her highly enough.

If you want fantastic head shots that make you look amazing and show off character. Get Jenny at JGW Photography to do them for you. You will not be disappointed.

Matthew Sandland – Actor

Jenny made me feel very comfortable and extremely relaxed in front of the camera. The shoot was very professional with lots of fun added. I absolutely love my photos and deserves a 5*+ rating! Thank you so much!

Rachael Covell-Rendel – Actress

Jenny is a superb photographer and definitely deserves her 5* rating!

What makes her different from the others is her down to earth attitude and the way she really tries to capture you as a performer, she really takes the time to get to know you and understand what sort of actor you are.

Her role-play games make it not only a fun experience but you get lots of shots with a variety of different looks to show your diversity as an actor which is just what I wanted.

I never thought I’d find a picture that I actually like of my ‘big fat grin’ but nonetheless she went and done it!

Couldn’t be more pleased with the final results and I would definitely recommend to anyone, especially of you’re not a fan of having your picture taken, she takes away all nerves and makes it a really fun and enjoyable experience! Thank you Jenny 🙂

Lindsay Davis – Actress

Thanks for all your hard work we’ve come out with a nice range update for my portfolio. my favourite shot was the out door one and I think when I have my next update I’ll go for a greater range of looks in the natural light as I think it suits my image.

My photo shoot with Jenny was fun and relaxed. Jenny took into consideration what I was aiming to get out of my photos and had a format which allowed time to get a range of looks and styles. Jenny then gave great attention to detail within the post production and photo selection making for a wide choice.

Thanks Jenny and all the best

Emily Sly – Actress

I loved having my first ever head shots done with Jenny. The whole experience was helpful and friendly and I’ve learned a lot. Couldn’t of asked for better! Jenny helped me to feel comfortable and to relax, we had some fun creating the right look for my shots. (Including a certain Mr. Johnny Depp!!) Was a great day and well worth the journey…Thanks so much Jenny. I’d recommend JGW photography for anybody who wants professional head shots that look fantastic!

Abi Smith – Actress

Fabulous work, love my headshots well worth the money. I’d definitely recommend you to anyone wanting there headshots, a pleasure to work with.

l’ll definitely be seeing you again in the future thanks Jenny.

Sarah Barke – Actress

Had my first headshots taken this weekend by the lovely Jenny Gavin-Wear.

Not only was she professional and got the job done superbly. But she was also fun, chatty and made the whole thing an absolute joy.

I am beyond happy with the finished product and hope to work with her again in the future!

Thank you Jenny x

Della Brett – Actress

Jenny was marvelous to work with. I was nervous at first as I’ve had headshots done in the past that I’ve been far from happy with, but the quality, composition, lighting and style of Jenny’s photos were top notch, and she did a fab job of capturing character and personality in my face.

Anything I wasn’t sure about was only ever down to my ugly mug and me being self conscious, but Jenny positioned me and directed me in a way which ensured that that was mostly prevented.

The shoot was fun and we had a laugh, and Jenny went out of her way to help me get to her studio when an issue presented itself at the last minute which could’ve prevented me from going.

Very happy with my final shots and I have some that I’m actually proud to use. Thank you xx

Emmeline Kellie – Actress

I give Jenny 5 Stars for a reason. She is exactly what a headshot photographer should be. Not only technically but in her approach to her clients. From the earliest contact I had with her, she really made the effort to do her research in order to get to know me as an actor and what I needed specifically from the shoot, which made the actual shoot day very enjoyable indeed.

She was fully prepared and I was already relaxed knowing that I had confidence in her and what she was able to do for me, which, for someone who is notoriously reticent in these sessions, was quite remarkable.

Jenny made the session fun and has great rapport with her subjects, putting them at total ease. Backed up with her technical ability, she knows exactly how to get the best shots and the results speak for themselves. I’m absolutely delighted with them and would definitely use her services again so I have no hesitation in recommending her to any actor in search of something special for their next set of headshots.

Jeff Bennett – Actor

I am writing a review to thank you so much for taking my head shots earlier this week.

I was initially nervous, since having photographs taken of me is not one of my more relaxing situations. You immediately recognised this and created a relaxing environment for me, to break the ice so to speak. I particularly enjoyed the scenarios, I was able to focus and to deliver the expressions you were creating for me. The make up artist was brilliant too.

I love the final pictures, I had great difficulty in selecting the final 5 due to so many being totally brilliant. I now have one headshot on my actors workshop casting page. I highly recommend that other actors requiring headshots, should contact your company for their headshots to be undertaken, best wishes, Stella

Stella Lock – Actress

Jenny is superb at her craft. Good headshot photographers are notoriously difficult to find, but Jenny is right up there with the best. Her images are stunning, and leap right out at you in almost a 3D style. Her use of the correct lighting is incredible …something where most so-called “headshot” photographers fail spectacularly.

The shoot itself was very relaxed, jovial, friendly and informal. I am proud of the headshots Jenny has produced, and I am confident they will certainly catch many Casting Directors’ eye.

Would I use Jenny again for future headshots?….Yes, absolutely, without a moments’ hesitation. Thank you Jenny for your professionalism.

Martin Calcroft – Actor

JGW, what can I say. My headshot’s speak for themselves, excellent; how a photographer manages to capture what is in affect behind the eyes is quite incredible, Jenny achieves it splendidly as she also manages to make it appear that you are coming out of the page giving almost a 3 dimensional quality.

From the first time I contacted Jenny she has been courteous, helpful, knowledgeable and humorous. When I met her at the studio she had me relaxed and enjoying myself in a very short time. Her instructions about the shoot were clear and the serious work started, although, in reality it was not work.

I am not the most relaxed person in front of a camera, a camera that takes photo’s anyway and of me as myself, but Jenny had me relaxed and digitally recorded in no time. Would I recommend Jenny, I cannot think of one reason why I would not. Thank you JGW, it’s the first time I’ve actually enjoyed looking at photo’s of myself.

Nigel Lewis-Davidson – Actor

Absolutely wonderful Headshots taken by JGW Photography! Jenny sets herself apart from others and really takes the time to listen and return to you with suggestions and advice that are specific to you as an individual.

I applaud her patience in regards to my indecisive nature and for taking my preference for outdoor headshots into consideration – which are amazing!

She clearly works incredibly hard to deliver the best she can and that is ultimately what you can expect her to create in working with you – the absolute best! Thank you, Jenny!

Eleanor Kingsley – Actress

Absolutely great shoot with Jenny this week for my best headshots to date, by a mile! Jenny makes you really feel at ease, and the shoot is also a lot of fun.

She gives great advice on the process of selecting your photo’s, which is a tough job as they are all taken so well, and gets you your final copies really quickly. Very highly recommended, thanks Jenny!

Simon Crudgington – Actor

I absolutely love my headshots!! Jenny knows her stuff – very insightful with a wicked sense of humour! She was able to draw out characters from my expressions to enhance my headshots.

Great company, I felt extremely relaxed and I’m chuffed with the results! I would recommend her to everyone. 5 Star

Stephen Lee Rees – Actor

I would wholeheartedly recommend Jenny for actor headshots. What comes across during the session is that Jenny has a wealth of experience and knowledge and loves what she does.

I felt relaxed enough to talk through an idea and Jenny listened – really listened – and managed to capture the image I was after exactly.

Jenny manages, in a relaxed and fun way, to get the best of your personality in your shots, as she knows that the slightest change in thought (and therefore facial muscle movement) can make quite a significant change to the picture. We then worked together to choose the favourites, Jenny being able to give her honest take on what a particular shot is saying.

I had a great time and am really pleased with my pics- thanks Jenny

Shelley Draper – Actress

This was my first time getting professional headshots and after this experience I would definitely go to Jenny again! I was nervous to start with but Jenny helped me to relax and enjoy the process. She even gave me a card for my birthday, and the finished photographs were an amazing present. If anybody I knew needed headshots I would recommend Jenny to them.

Sophie Mander – Actress

Headshots are amazing!! Jenny was a joy to work with. Makes you feel really comfortable.

Was a cracking day and would recommend to everyone 🙂

Ben Jones – Actor

Looks like another 5 out of 5 for a really professional job. Jenny not only knows how to take great photos she’s more than happy to spend the time getting it just right. A very happy time, lots of laughs and great results. What more could you hope for?

Melvyn Rawlinson – Actor

A warm welcome, and relaxed atmosphere. Very happy with my photos, and thanks to Jenny for trying something different with my sports shots. I highly recommend Jenny to anyone looking to update their headshots.

Danielle Stanley – Actress

My first ever headshot, and I couldn’t of asked for a better photographer. Jenny was relaxed and fun, whilst still maintaining a professional and focused vibe throughout the shoot. She catered to my needs, and reviewed the pictures she had took by the bunch, to ensure I was pleased and impressed – which I was!

I was pretty nervous to start, but she soon takes the edge off, and with the help of a few fun scenarios and scenes, she captured me looking my best. I’m proud to post all of my pictures on online casting sites and agencies. Thanks, Jenny!

James David Clarke – Actor

Jenny is an excellent and very thorough photographer.

She goes the extra mile to give the client exactly what they require from their headshots.

As a professional actor of 30 years, I highly recommend Jenny and her work internationally.

Best wishes, Carl Wharton. Thank you Jenny.

Carl Wharton – Actor

Having my headshots done with Jenny was a lot of fun. I’m very new to this, but she made it easy and comfortable. – Expect to be pulling some whacky faces and picturing yourself in scenarios you wouldn’t even dream of, but the end result is fantastic! The headshots I received (very quickly I might add) are of a high quality and have me looking my best. If you’re needing headshots, Jenny’s the person you need to speak to!

Neil Main – Actor

I had my first photo session with Jenny after a referral and I wasnt dissappointed. She made the photo session alot of fun which made me feel relaxed.

Jenny was introduced to myself through my agent regarding headshot photographs for my spotlight and casting portfolio. I had a fantastic experience as Jenny knew exactly what the production and casting directors look for which put me at ease when taking the photo shoot.

Make- up artist was great which Jenny arranged, this complimented the photographs taken. Jenny was easy to talk to, fun and captured the “real you” in the photographs. Thanks Jenny will definitely recommend you! Very pleased with my photographs.
