As a photographer, Lexi Clare specialises in natural-light headshots for actors and creatives. She is committed to affordable headshots and a naturalistic style of retouching.​

Lexi works regularly as a rehearsal photographer for theatre. Her portfolio also includes concept art shoots and production photography for a number of London and New Zealand theatre productions and companies. 

Lexi offers a limited number of discounted shoots each month for those who consider themselves low-income earners or who are unwaged.


Lexi Clare launched Maiden Speech in 2017, a dynamic and exciting theatre festival that provides a much-needed platform to showcase the boldest new work from a new generation of theatre-makers. Maiden Speech concluded its third season in November 2019, and supported more than 100 early-career artists across its three year tenure.

Recent producing highlights include GROOVE, a co-production between Outbox and Shoreditch Town Hall. Nominated for three Off-West End awards including Access, GROOVE featured an intergenerational cast of queer artists and explored the dance floor as a place of protest, identity, belonging and desire.
