So what’s our story?
Hello, I’m Saskia and I run Hey Tuesday – the UK’s rebellious little business headshot company. We are passionate about putting the personality back into your business headshots.
Thanks for stopping by, you’re in good hands. I’ve been credited by Time magazine for creating the genre of dating photography and I’m recognised as the leading industry expert in the UK & US on all things dating photo related after setting up the UK’s first and coolest dating photography business, Hey Saturday.
I set up Hey Tuesday after getting lots of requests from clients for business headshots as well as dating photos. Hey Tuesday creates headshots for people who want more than just the standard headshots. They want more personality, warmth and depth in their shots.
Our clients are entrepreneurs, small business owners, creatives, designers, artists, bloggers, therapists, CEOs – anyone who is the face of their business. Or people who are part of the visual generation and know that if they want to get ahead they need cool, dynamic Linkedin headshots.
Meet The Squad

We are all unique & each have our own special quirks & interests but what we have in common are tonnes of passion, talent & experience. We are massively committed to helping our clients enjoy an experience which can often push them right out their comfort zone.
