“I’m extremely pleased with the headshots Charley has taken for me recently. The whole process from turning up at the studio to receiving the final shots went without a glitch. She creates a relaxed atmosphere, and makes sure she knows exactly what you want from the photos before you begin. In the relatively short session we must have taken over one hundred pictures with different tops and backgrounds, leaving a multitude to choose from. The speed with which I then received the photos was exceptional, and they were all of a very high quality. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends “

“I was very nervous before the session but Charley immediately made me feel at ease and I felt I could be confident without judgement. We were able to collaborate on the shots taken and which styles to choose and it was actually a very enjoyable experience. The photos turned out fantastic (especially for the price) and Charley was able to get them to me very quickly for a tight application turn around I had. I would recommend Charley to anyone looking for some solid, affordable headshots – perfect for first timers!

“I am very happy with the headshots that Charley has produced for me. She has captured me at my best and has created exactly the type of headshot I had in mind when I was looking to get new shots done. The photos look fresh, sharp, modern and very professional. I could not have asked for more from Charley, both in terms of the final shots and the way she handled the photo shoot. Charley was very skilled at guiding and directing me in certain poses throughout the shoot to create a range of natural expressions and looks, all showing my best features yet staying true to how I look in real life. I have recently just secured a new agent after uploading these photos to my Casting Profiles online, and my new agent really likes the shots. Thank you Charley!”

“Having my photos taken by Charley was a very pleasurable experience and I am one of those people who generally feel self-conscious and awkward in front of a camera. Charley immediately made me feel comfortable and relaxed, and was entirely professional, patient and encouraging throughout the shoot, with the result that I have at last got some shots that I like, that look good and look like me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

“Charley created a very relaxed but professional atmosphere during the shoot and was confident at guiding me through various natural poses and expressions.

She took the time to find out what I wanted from my headshots and I was very pleased with the end result.

“At the start of the session, Charley outlined the process we would go through with a high degree of professionalism and a friendly demeanour, helping to relax as well as inform me.

The headshot session was an entirely comfortable, and thoroughly enjoyable experience, and I would strongly recommend her to anyone in need of a talented and amiable photographer.”

” My name is Jayne Connell and I have been working as an actress for several years.  Of course every now and then the issue of new head shots rears it’s (literally) ugly head.  I hate having my photograph taken.  Frankly I would rather appear naked on stage than have head shots done!

In the past I have made expensive trips to London, and paid “eminent” photographers” money I couldn’t afford, to come away from a self conscious and stressful photo shoot with  tense and unnatural photo’s which did me no favours whatsoever.  It was an experience I dreaded until I went to see Charley at CiderMill studio.
I was honest from the outset and told her that I was a “rubbish” subject who hated the whole thing.  She showed a remarkable talent for not only putting me at my ease but also making me feel as if I was a perfectly good photographic subject.  The results she achieved have amazed everyone I know including my agent who said she was basically “spoilt for choice “when it came to picking the shots we would use to send to prospective directors – they were all so good.  Charley captured my personality and made me look entirely natural and glowing.  The session was the most enjoyable one I have ever experienced.  She did exactly what was needed to an excellent standard and I am delighted (for the first time ever) by the results.  I just can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“It was great to have my headshot done by Charley from Cidermill – it was a very relaxed and informative session and I was given a lot of advice during the session in relation to angles and poses.

The lighting was great and I’m very happy with the final pictures, thank you very much!

“I recently commissioned a set of actor’s headshots from Charley Murrell of Cider Mill Photography in Bristol. The results were of excellent quality, executed exactly to brief, delivered promptly and extremely good value.

The studio was well equipped and convenient and the whole process well planned and managed. I would strongly recommend Charles as a stage, business and creative photographer and thank her for an enjoyable and productive session”

“I recently had some actor headshots done with Charley and I couldn’t be happier with them, she creates a lovely relaxed atmosphere for the shoot and I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all.

I received all the photos to browse through extremely quickly afterwards and I had such a hard time choosing as all the shots came out beautifully, Ive received many compliments about them since, a great photographer and I cant wait to work with her again.”

“I’d never had any headshots taken before so I was a bit apprehensive, and more than a bit self-conscious, but Charley was so friendly and gave such professional and easy direction that I soon forgot my nerves and relaxed.

There was no clock watching or rush and Charley made sure that I was completely happy with the photos as we went along so that we could change anything if it was needed. The final results are exactly what I was hoping for and cover all the styles I might need. I would fully recommend her to anyone.”

“I had never had any headshots taken before this shoot so if you are new to this kind of thing I would really recommend Charley. She was professional but very friendly and helps you through the process so you feel comfortable and get some great results.

I also had some full length dance pictures taken which I was especially pleased with, even the moving poses came out well! The shoot was really relaxed and smooth and I felt charley made every effort to make sure I looked nice in all the pictures.”
