What People Say
This was the first time I had a professional shoot and I was quite nervous and camera shy but Nick was fantastic. He talked me through it all and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. He is very professional but at the same time he makes you feel like you are hanging out with a friend so you begin to relax and be yourself, resulting in very natural looking photos which capture your strength and personality. I highly recommend him.

Nick makes great photos and I enjoyed being in his studio. I live in Denmark and selected Nick after having looked at his portfolio and videos. It was no problem to arrange payments and organize the appointment, so I could do the photo session during one of my London visits.

I can’t recommend Nick too highly. My debut novel is about to be submitted to publishers and I needed headshots for the webpage I’m setting up, for my agent’s website and for publishers. I have very few good photos of myself and always just assumed I was unphotogenic. Not only did Nick take dozens of excellent shots, he also gave me invaluable guidance about the whole process. And he was unfailingly helpful and courteous about my frequent (and often repeated) questions. Thanks Nick!

I'm a counsellor an needed photos to use on various online directories as well as on my website. On these directories the photo is in effect the shop window and will determine if a potential client will "click" to read more and therefore maybe make an enquiry. So the photo is important and it is also important that I look in the photo how a client would find me as they sit down in a session. Nick really understood this. He has a relaxed and casual approach which makes it easy to relax and at the same time he clearly knows what he is doing - is very professional - so a trust in the process is established. Professional photos are not necessarily cheap but they are an investment in your business - for me an important investment. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone. I got the photos in different formats and sizes as each of the online directories have different requirements so exactly what I needed. Thanks Nick!

I needed new headshots doing at short notice and Nick was really helpful and easy to get along with. He really knows his stuff and helps find what you need in a session, couldn't recommend him enough.

I am really happy with the experience on the day of the shoot and client help and advice that Nick Gregan provides afterwards. Nick was really approachable, helpful and honest. I wasn't disappointed the previous time and this was my reason for having my new set of headshots done by Nick. Thank you so much Nick. I can't thank you enough. God Bless.

Nick took photos of my 2 young children for Spotlight and it was a great success. Firstly the pictures he took were great but also he was great with the kids and made them feel relaxed and happy during the shoot. He even managed to capture them together - not an easy feat! The kids agent was really happy with the pictures and I recommend Nick highly to anyone.

Working with Nick was great. He makes you feel relaxed and at ease, and has a great eye for what makes a good headshot. He really manages to bring out the real “you”.

I have been an actress for 20 years and used Nick Gregan for most if not all of my head shots. He is highly skilled and extremely professional. His images are classy and he works with the artist to get the best images he can to suit what the individual needs and the particular roles they may go for. I can’t reccomend him enough.

I graduated from drama school two years ago and needed to update my previous headshots. I decided to book with Nick because of his vast experience and feedback I had received from other actors. He made me feel very comfortable and his knowledge allowed him to guide me through the session whilst still ensuring I felt in control and achieved what I wanted. I would definitely recommend Nick and will be using him in the future.

I had expectations of what I would get from Nick. What surprised me as how easy the shoot flowed. He came up with more than one look for me which made the best corporate and personal portraits I've had done.

Nick is absolutely amazing. He doesn’t just take photos, he captures an essence of your soul. I was blown away by the standard of the photography and would definitely recommend this to everyone I know.

Excellent shots. Very professionnal.

Nick prepared me with my first professional headshots that got me from drama school into an agency and onto many jobs! His approach was very calming and friendly and the results are great! Really lovely man. Would recommend.
23:17 27 Sep 18
I always go to Nick for my headshots. He knows exactly what he is doing, exactly how to get the best out of you and exactly what is needed to sell you most effectively. He is totally professional, imaginative and creative. He is also a lovely man - so the sessions are fun and he gives such clear direction that all seems easy. Deffo a five star photographer.

I'm an actor who doesn't consider myself to be particularly good at having my photo taken, so I tend to dread the experience of having new headshots done. I had a session with Nick on Monday and I have to say that it was one of the best experiences I've had when having new headshots done! Nick was very friendly and put me at ease in front of the camera, constantly laughing and joking around which really helped with my nerves. The session was a lot of fun and I was rewarded with some fantastic new headshots that reflect Nick's enthusiasm and talent for what he does- Honestly, it takes a lot to make me look good in a photo and Nick did just that. If you're looking for new headshots etc, I couldn't reccommend Nick highly enough!

Great evening with Nick at the Portrait Group at London Camera Club. He's buzzing with creative ideas for the set ups and I learned a lot as well.

Nick Gregan deserves his reputation as one of the top headshot photographers in London. Friendly and approachable, he makes you feel totally relaxed in front of the camera . Some great pictures. He's funny too!

Nick was recommended to me when my two children started with an acting agency & needed some headshots. When I first called to enquire about a photo session , I explained that this was all new to us & Nick was so helpful in explaining what was involved & what to bring along. Upon arrival the set up was very professional - even with a little changing room. He was so patient, directing & even demonstrating poses my children to try to do. He took lots of photo's & as he was able to put my children so at ease we got some really fantastic shots. I returned to Nick this year to update their headshots & to do some additional modelling shots & again I can't fault the service Nick provided & I very much hope to use him again in the future. Thank you

I was looking to book my yearly session with Nick and noticed a 1 star review.I read this with interest and believe the person used someone else or has no idea what he is talking about.Ive used Nick for 15 years recomended him to friends and family around the world.Never have I had anything except perfection.He works you to give you to get you at your best. If you have zero charisma sadly he can’t add that in a picture but will never retouch and send rubbish.I rented the 4 seasons hotel Trinity square club out for shoots of my friends who did I choose Nick,they were superb my friends were over the moon sending images over we chat and getting rave reviews of his work.So if you want quality Nicks your man.I am also a non exec director of a restaurant chain who do I use for the food,restaurants and team images Nick,so not only headshots a multi skilled photographer.

I’ve done a lot of photoshoots and was pleasantly surprised with the professionalism and kindness with which Nick approaches his job. He clearly knows his craft well and made me feel comfortable and relaxed in order to get the best out of my headshot session. I would definitely recommend working with him.

Nick has done our headshot photography for years and we will always go back to him. He is brilliant at what he does!

It was a pleasure to do a shoot with Nick. He is friendly and easy to work with, the turnaround time for getting my headshot back was also particularly quick.

Nick is one of the best photographers I have ever used. He taught me how to be confident in front of a camera.
