PORTRAITS & HEADSHOTS

 

ABOUT

My Name is Charlot van Heeswijk, I'm a Berlin based filmmaker and visual artist. While expanding my portfolio as a photographer over the past few years I started offering individual portrait photo shootings for actors, dancers, performers and artists. 

My style of portraiture is poetic and individual yet artistically refined - I want to bring out the most authentic version of you while allowing for range and versatility. Drawing from my experience as a director and caster I have a good sense of what to look out for and how to help you get into the right mindset during our shoot.

"A great portrait is subliminal, expressive yet authentic. But most importantly it has mystery - a secret waiting to be uncovered."

 

HOW I WORK

We will discuss your individual needs and pick a selection of styles and locations. On the day of the shoot we head out for a couple of hours together. You'll get to pick your favourite photos out of a pre-selection online and receive a digital package with retouched portraits within a week. 

It's important for me to make sure you feel safe and at ease during our shooting session. Please don't hesitate to communicate your preferred pronouns or anything else you would like me to consider upfront! 


 

FILM OR DIGITAL?

I shoot film as well as digital. But I believe there is a certain quality and soul to film that digital photography just can't emulate. Knowing I only have a limited amount of shots adds determination and focus to my work and I believe this reflects in both the dynamic between photographer and model during the shoot as well as in the photographs.

It's up to you wether you want to shoot digital, film or both.

 

YOUNG TALENT

Next to established actors, artists dancers and performers I'd like to give upcoming talent the chance to do an expressive yet affordable photoshoot: If you're a student, I'm offering tiers at discounted rates.

If you're queer, trans*, BIPoC or in a difficult financial position please don't be afraid to let me know and we'll figure something out!
