In this modern age of the internet, linked in and online job applications a great headshot for yourself or your staff is always a great investment. People love to put a face to a name and it’s important to show those faces in the best light possible to make a great impression. 

I like my headshots to be eye catching, subtle and representative of who you are and the message you want to give to prospective clients or employers. 


I'll offer you a cup of tea or coffee on arrival, We can have a little chat about what it is that you need from the headshots.. Then we'll get you behind the lights and start taking some shots. I tend to keep the conversation going throughout to keep natural expressions flowing.

During the session we will recheck the images on the computer until we have something thats perfect for you. At the end you can choose your top 5 images from the shoot and I'll retouch them for you within 7 days.

Who's it for ?

I’m happy to work with anyone from magazines, to bloggers, musicians, small companies and more. I can tailor packages to fit your budget and I’m always excited to discuss new projects, however big or small. For up & coming artists of any kind I recognise the financial constraints it can bring and can offer versatile solutions to overcome the problem. 

Consultations are free so please don’t be afraid to drop me an email or give me call to see if I can help you ! :)


I love my work, I love the power an image can yield and the effects it can leave on others. Through my work I like to give a feeling along with the message your trying to convey. In my eyes a great image has to be eye catching, beautiful and direct to the point. 

In regards to the process, I like to keep the brief in focus but plan as little as possible to keep our minds, eyes and hearts open on the day. I always interact with my subjects as it keeps a natural flow and energy to the images. On the whole I take a relaxed but professional approach and enjoy enjoying the process !!

Absolutely outstanding service, couldn't recommend highly enough. Most notably - I had my shoot booked in and received the edited shots just 24 hours after I requested a booking! The whole experience was of utmost professionalism as well as incredibly warm and welcoming. Thanks Joe 


Paolo Francesco

I came to Joe after i was recommended and saw some of his work. Joe was very understanding and managed to get my headshots back to me super fast which was great as I needed them for a last minute audition. Great studio, easy to find and comfortable. Joe definitely knows how to work with you to get a natural looking headshot with sincere emotions.


Jamie Kennedy -

 I saw Joseph last weekend for a shoot. He had a nice studio in the northern quarter and was kitted out with lots of great equipment, so I new this was a very professional set up and I was in good hands. I spent about 2.5 hours with Joseph and an assistant and had loads of shots taken in the studio and outside in the northern quarter. I've seen lots of shots now, after a short turnaround time, and they look fantastic. He is very professional and great to work with. I strongly recommend him. I had a bad experience with a photographer in Manchester in the past, I am very glad I found Joseph Rigby!

When you climb the stairs to Joe’s studio you enter a comfortable world where relaxation and friendliness are on offer. There is no limit to the number of shots Joe will take; he just wants what he believes to be the right ones that show off your best side; and with his experience he knows your best side.I was experiencing this for the first time and Joe made it really enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended.
