    Gideon was an amazing professional photographer! My pictures are beautiful! He was fun to work with with great direction. He contacted me before, during and after my shoot. I've worked with some photographers that "disappear" and it takes months for pictures or email responses. Not with Gideon! Professional and super fun at the same time! Thank you so much!

  • 5/5 stars October 14, 2014

    What a phenomenal experience, I have had professional headshot done before; however the people taking them did not seem to truly understand how to get the best portrait. Gideon took the time to understand what poses, settings and lighting would produce the best looking pictures. I highly recommend using him for any of your professional or commercial needs

  • 5/5 stars September 13, 2014

    This was my first time taking professional headshots and Gideon made me feel extremely comfortable the entire time. He was very helpful with minor things that I didn't even notice I was doing, just to make sure I could get the best possible picture! He got back to me with my pictures full optimized and ready to go within a day. He was just plain amazing and helpful

  • 5/5 stars September 11, 2014

    My experience with Gideon was truly amazing! I needed a headshot for my LinkedIn profile. Gideon and Kelsey were absolute professionals, knew exactly what to do with my outfits, hair and makeup, and I was blown away by the results. I could not have asked for a better experience, and the photos far exceeded my wildest expectations. I would highly recommend Gideon because he is professional, fun to work with, he knows what he is doing, he gave me great directions for terrific poses (I am no fashion model!), and an all-around pleasure to work with. It was a wonderful experience and I am so pleased with the results! He is truly the BEST.

    Gideon returned my email within the hour. He was polite and informative when I asked questions. He helped me select my outfits from options I had, and directed me well during the session. The studio was attractive and open, just a little dusty here and there. The makeup the female artist used was making my eyes water uncontrollably, (perhaps an allergy??) but I only had that day to shoot in my schedule, and he still managed to take great shots of me despite my allergy. He gave me his undivided attention even though another model was also there. Somehow they coordinated both of our shoots at the same time. Very focused team. The makeup artist assisted him by straightening any hair that was out of place. She dabbed my tears between shots. I trusted him to choose the shots & he edited them overnight. It was so fast and I was satisfied overall :)

    I went to Gedeon to get headshots. I also need a make-up artist which he provided. He is a fantastic photographer and he took wonderful headshots of me. My agent is happy. I'm happy and I am getting work as a result. He knows his craft well.

  • 5/5 stars June 18, 2014

    I used Gideon for a business headshot and am extremely pleased with the outcome. He is professional and very easy to work with. He listened to my needs and tailored his approach to help realize my goals. I will use him for all my future needs.

  • 5/5 stars May 17, 2014

    I needed a high-resolution head shot for my book cover and related promotional materials, and I feel very lucky that I chose someone with years of head shot experience who is also a stylist! Gideon's guidance and professionalism resulted in dozens of outstanding photos, and it was very hard to choose only seven among them. Since I needed the photos almost immediately, Gideon put in the extra effort to turn around the high-resolution, airbrushed photos in just a few days. I highly recommend Gideon D. Photography for friendly, professional service and for the highest quality product.

  • 5/5 stars May 5, 2014

    Gideon went beyond my expectations! I have never had a headshot or picture of myself that looked so good. He was very accommodating, easy to work with, incredibly responsive, creative, and (the most important) produce a great picture. I highly recommend Gideon. Thank you so much! BTW this was my first time using thumbtack but not the last. Super easy.

  • 5/5 stars April 1, 2014

    Gideon is fantastic to work with! A true pro in every sense. Very easy & comfortable working together. He took the time to understand my needs & followed through taking care of every detail. A wonderful surprise, especially on quick turnaround! You can count on a great experience with Gideon... exceptional!

  • 5/5 stars February 17, 2014

    I needed headshots for my new website which is a little out of my comfort zone. Gideon made the process so easy by making me comfortable, helping to pick out the outfits for the shoot and he really knows how to bring out the best in you. I am extremely happy with the shots - they were well worth it. And it was also great to have the opportunity to work with Gideon, a true master of his craft. I would definitely recommend Gideon for any type of photography shoot - he is the best!

  • 5/5 stars February 14, 2014

    Gideon is very professional but makes you feel relax and comfortable. He is also fast and efficient in getting the job done.

  • 5/5 stars December 7, 2013

    Gideon was so much fun to work with. This was my first time getting headshots taken and he made me feel very comfortable. He knows how to get that sincere smile in your face that makes your eyes truly light up! I felt truly beautiful and I'm so pleased with how my headshots turned out! Thank you, Gideon! I will definitely recommend you to my fellow actors!

  • 5/5 stars December 4, 2013

    From greeting to goodbye I was very pleased with how Gideon facilitates his business. I was comfortable during the shoot and I think the results are testament to that. His simple and gentle direction made it easy to relax and be myself, which is everything! I would recommend Gideon to anyone looking to get head shots done.

  • 5/5 stars November 28, 2013

    Gideon was excellent! A lot of fun to work and great ideas about how to show my product. Would definitely recommend him and definitely use him in the future.

  • 5/5 stars November 9, 2013

    I have worked with Gideon twice now. Gideon is very professional and I was very pleased with the results from both photo sessions. I also enjoy Gideon's personality and friendly demeanor.

  • 5/5 stars October 15, 2013

    Absolute professionalism. Gideon epitomizes what one would expect when going to a professional photographer; friendly, inviting, specific, helpful, fast but not rushed, relaxed atmosphere, clean enviorn, respectful ... . This was my first photo shoot and Gideon was the perfect pick. I can imagine him being amazing with families and in a celebratory enviornment. Wonderful man. Highly recommend him!

  • 5/5 stars October 15, 2013

    Gideon is the consummate professional. Everyone raved about him, and I was a bit skeptical, but all the raves are well-deserved! He totally delivers and more. He also makes a photo shoot super fun. I recommend him HIGHLY!!

  • 5/5 stars October 11, 2013

    I needed a headshot to accompany an article being published in a paper, plus a few professional shots for my website. While I'm a beginner subject, I could immediately tell Gideon was a professional photographer. He made me feel relaxed, but provided plenty of guidance to ensure the best possible results. I would highly recommend Gideon to any of my family, friends or colleagues.

  • 5/5 stars October 9, 2013

    Working with Gideon was a wonderful decision. I needed to step up my professional portfolio and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. His warm and friendly disposition made the shoot seem effortless, and his artistic eye captured exactly the look I was going for. I would hire him again in an instant.

  • 5/5 stars September 13, 2013

    I was very pleased with the actress headshots I had done. I felt comfortable with the makeup artist and with Gideon. He told me exactly what he wanted and I was confident in his eye for what looked good even if the positions dont feel natural. I especially liked the lighting of the outdoor pictures. The final edited pictures look very professional. When it comes to headshots, Gideon is the man for the job.

  • 5/5 stars September 8, 2013

    Gideon and staff were very professional and easy to work with. I needed semi-professional photos for our website. Gideon nailed it!

  • 5/5 stars September 4, 2013

    Gideon did an amazing shoot with my 17 month old daughter. he was not only very professional, but also very friendly and experienced at what he does. he captured alot of amazing angles, lighting, and cute poses that is hard to capture seeing how a baby that just learned how to walk could not hold still. yes, it took a while to capture what i wanted and needed but Gideon had a lot of patients which was very nice and easy for me. His pricing was very affordable and location was nice. I would definitely recommend him as a photographer you might want to look into for an photo image that you are looking to get done... thank you gideon

  • 5/5 stars August 6, 2013

    Gideon is very nice and made me feel very comfortable during the shoot. His pictures also came out very well. I would definitely work with him again!

  • 5/5 stars August 1, 2013

    Just finished a boudoir photo shoot withGideon and it was amazing! He was so professional and made me feel 100% comfortable. You can tell he loves what he does and has an amazing eye for detail. He takes his time and is committed to the creative process. I had so much fun and was so impressed with him and his team! I would recomend him to anyone!!

  • 5/5 stars July 30, 2013

    Gideon was very professional to work with and went above and beyond in his customer service. He has a great eye for what will work and makes the experience fun. The final images came out great! I for sure recommend him and plan to work with him again!

  • 5/5 stars July 7, 2013

    Gideon photography contacted me after my request close and beat out the quotes offered. He gave an awesome price for real estate photography that came out gorgeous- property looked flattering in photos. He was very easy to communicate with as well. Thanks!

  • 5/5 stars July 4, 2013

    Gideon was quick to provide a thorough and professional quote. He was an absolute joy to work with and was incredibly caring and thoughtful. He has an entrepreneurial spirit, and he also put me at ease during the shoot. His work turned out beautifully! His business partner Kelsey did my hair and makeup for me, and I usually don't like it when others do my hair and makeup, but she did it perfectly -- I still looked like me but optimized for being photographed.

  • 5/5 stars July 3, 2013


    For about 25 years, I have dreaded getting my picture taken, so I didnít, for any reason, what so ever. However, this year I simply had to get pictures taken professionally. Let me just say this, I have never been as impressed as I was after meeting Gideon and seeing his work. To say that he is an amazing photographer would be an understatement. Moreover, his passion for photography and for his clients clearly shows by the work that he has done. In addition, Gideon is a true professional and he is as fun, as he is funny. He is remarkably creative and has the intrinsic skills for making a person feel so comfortable while poising in front of the camera. Gideon is not a one-dimensional photographer, but rather, his work is multi-dimensional. This will virtually work for anyone seeking an outstanding photographer with a cool, limitless edge.

  • 5/5 stars June 12, 2013

    Great job at a very reasonable price. The house photos were beautiful. Professional photographer with quick and prompt response.

  • 5/5 stars May 7, 2013

    Gideon was fantastic to work with. He was very professional, while making me feel comfortable. The pictures turned out beautifully, and I am confident using them. I recommend him to everyone. Whether you have a lot of experience getting photos taken of you, or it is your first time Gideon will do a great job!

  • 5/5 stars April 2, 2013

    Gideon is quite the artist. He knows what poses will look good and what lighting is needed. He uses natural light outside with the help of some reflective material. He is quick with responding back and getting your pictures to you. My sons senior portraits will be the best.

  • 5/5 stars March 19, 2013

    We did a shoot with Gideon a week ago and he was truly amazing. This man is very gifted at taking photos of kids. He is patient and kind and funny. My daughter thought he was very fun to work with. Thank you so much for the amazing job you did Gideon. We will pass your name along to others.

  • 5/5 stars March 6, 2013

    ust had a great day with Gideon, stellar photographer, and the lovely and talented makeup and hair artist, Kelsey. I am not a super model or fresh faced high school grad but an up and coming entrepreneur, who hates to have her picture taken. Gideon and Kelsey made it a fantastic experience. They were professional and personable. I have yet to see the results save for a quick peek at the end, I have no doubt he got the shot I am looking for! Thanks so much Gideon and Kelsey. We survived the battle of the bangs! lol

  • 5/5 stars February 4, 2013

    Being a newbie to the photography scene, I was very nervous and had no idea what to do or expect. Gideon made me feel comfortable and I was at ease and had fun the entire time. The photo's turned out WAY better than I'd imagined. If the need arises for me to hire a professional photographer again, I will definitely use him. Got my moneys worth!

  • 5/5 stars January 5, 2013

    We have used Gideon twice now and each time has been a wonderful experience. He is professional and interacts very well with his models. Gideon takes his time to get the best shots. He puts the model at ease and helps his clients throughout the shoot. Would we use him again? YOU BET!!

  • 5/5 stars September 19, 2012

    First of all let me say I HATE being in front of a camera--I take AWFUL pictures and am very self-conscious ---but I took a chance hoping a gifted professional would turn my goofy mugshots into something more alluring. Gideon was AWESOME---He made me feel completely comfortable and the experience was EVEN fun----the end results were incredible---I look beautiful and sexy in the pictures and that is the first time in over 20 years I can make that statement. Gideon was really able to bring out the best in me and I am looking forward to going back to him in the future.
