I had a great time taking pictures with Marta. I have taken headshots before,
and I am usually not very happy with the result. For me it all depends on being relaxed. In front of the camera you are so transparent, and if you feel uncomfortable, the pictures will show that. Marta took her time, that made me trust her, and trust that we would take some good headshots. She really has a good eye for details, and she knows what she is doing.
She came prepared, and had already done research on places we could take pictures. As a photographer she knows what works and what does not, and she was not afraid of telling me. I think the key to a good photo is communication.
After the shoot she sent me the photos, and I got to choose. I ended up with more than I planned, but that only means she did a good job.
I highly reccommend this girl, no doubt that I will use her again, when it is time to take new pictures.

I cannot recommend Marta Pequeño enough. To be photographed by her is probably one of the most pleasurable and fun times I've ever had on a shoot. I have never looked better and probably never will due to Marta's excellent eye for shots and ability to make you just relax in her presence. The time flew by. She is also great for a laugh as well.
A real talent and gem of a human being.
The session with Marta was really nice, great atmosphere that made me feel relaxed and give my best in the pictures.
And the pictures look amazing! Thank you!
My headshot session with Marta was really fun! She is very easy to work with and helped me to relax throughout the session
Normally, I hate headshots. I loathe them. I see them as a necessary evil in the business of acting so I get them done but always begrudgingly. Not so with Marta. She instantly put me at ease and encouraged input, a relaxed atmosphere, and plenty of laughter. Her eye for colour and her instincts for what will show you in the best possible light are qualities all too rare in headshot photography. So stop reading this and get those headshots taken!
Marta is not only friendly and fun, but she knows being in front of a camera can be uncomfortable. Therefore, she will do everything she can to make you feel relaxed and comfortable! She always has a smile on her face, makes jokes, takes the time to get to know you, and always acts professional. I trusted her every step of the way, even when I didn't trust myself. At the top of the shoot, she had to constantly remind me to get out of my head ... but as the session went on, I noticed I didn't have to be reminded as much. She never stopped encouraging me, nor made me stop laughing. She has fun and clever tricks up her sleeve to loosen you up and make you feel more at ease. She takes top quality photos and I would absolutely recommend her to any actor!
Marta is not only an excellent photographer, but she has a knack for capturing people's unique essence and personality, essential to any headshot. She's very friendly, which helps to puts her clients at ease instantly, all in all helping to create an authentic photograph.
Marta's an absolute joy to work with! She thinks of everything and gets you so many high quality, usable shots. Her photos are a testament to the trust she gets out of everyone who works with her. Can't recommend her enough!
Marta is extremely professional. She was detailed in the planning of the photoshoot. During our session she was so warm and engaging and full of ideas. She was precise in her direction but still very open to what would be best for me. I felt very safe and she made the process feel natural.
Marta is a wonderful photographer who truly wants the best for her clients. She is clear, easy to work with and gives a relaxed approach to finding your best angles. As an actor herself, she knows how important headshots are and this helps immensely. I highly recommend her.
In the past I had a hard time feeling comfortable when having my picture taken and I often feel self-concious. Marta made me feel safe, beautiful and relaxed. I ended up having a great time resulting in some amazing pictures that I have the confidence will help me get through that casting door.
Marta has a great passion for photography, and is a technically gifted photographer, but first and foremost she is great at working with people. When I came into the session with Marta I was nervous, but her calm demeanor and knowledge of the craft together with a sharp sense of humor made me quickly relax. With Marta you can talk and joke about anything, and she feels like your friend instead of your "photographer". She´s an expert in creating a safe environment for you, which is the most important thing to take good headshots.
Marta’s professional attitude through-out the shoot, and her relaxed and friendly approach made the entire experience enjoyable and I lost any tension and nervousness very quickly. The photos turned out great, and the changes in setting and clothing combined with her direction and technique brought out the best photos I’ve ever had taken. The inexpensive price completed the package perfectly. Thank you Marta!
Marta Pequeño is efficient, professional an accommodating. She manages to putting you at ease, setting up a relaxed and fun atmosphere. It was a very enjoyable experience.
Marta had great suggestions in regards to what would work best for me (hair, clothing, backdrop). What was nice, is that she also asked what my intentions were for the headshots so that I could get a photo that matched my specific needs. I feel confident that I have multiple shots that will work for different types of roles, in the UK and abroad, and for several styles of theatre. Thanks Marta! I know I will feel pretty and confident walking into an audition with my new headshots!
