A short message from Nicole…

Hello! Thanks for reading this silly little post about me :)

Mark Wheelwright is an absolute sweetie, and a pleasure to work with. He’s constantly guided me and shown me the ropes. It’s done bits for my confidence and I’ve really made some lifelong friends on set.

He shot my own actor headshots which I use on Spotlight and Backstage, ad I can confidently say he provides excellent value for money. Good headshots tend to be pricey, but Aire Street Studio’s headshot prices are amazing, compared to some in London which tend to cost £500 or more.

Pop in for a chat like I did and let Mark work his photographer magic - promise it is worth it!
