Nabor Godoy was fantastic. I needed a headshot for work on short notice. He more than delivered! He has a great studio in downtown San Francisco. I got there and he was ready. We went over lighting and backdrop options. I am not very good at smiling for the camera, but he brought out the best in me. He is good natured and talented! We did a series of shots and then paused to look. He and I talked about the work I do and agreed which photo was best. He said he’d work a bit on the shading and wow, two hours later I had it. It was great — better than I expected, and much better than anything I might ask a friend to do on an I-phone. Totally satisfied.

I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!

Mr. Singh did headshots for a group of about 10. He was easy to work with, and made people feel comfortable in front of the camera. The whole process was seamless, and we had great communicaiton. He tried to accomodate us, and was flexible. We uploaded the pictures immediately. They definitely didn't need to be retouched - high quality. Overall, a great experience.

Wow! This was an awesome experience. Sheila was encouraging, warm, and helped me to feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She was taking Headshots, and full body shots for me. We took them at the Claremont hotel grounds in Berkeley. She is a genius at framing the photos and suggesting poses. I am really grateful to have found her, and would definately hire again.

Chantelle is a wonderful make up artist and hair stylist. She is very professional and will be there on time and will work with how and what you want to look like. She will give gentle suggestions when she feels that something may go better for you but she respects your decisions and will do her best to create your vision. She delivers A++ service on her craft. Even when pressured for time she does an amazing job and she will not disappoint. My experience with her is excellent. I would hire her again an again if she lived closer to me! Not only incredicble skills and work ethic she is such a wonderful person to be around with! Just being around her makes you relax that you just forget all the stress! Bottom line, in my experience: I felt very pretty that day. The day before I was so scared I'd look like an ugly duck. When we finished the hair and make up she was one of the first to boost my confidence and there were certainly TONS of people who followed after her. I owe that whole experience to her. Thank you so much!

Cheshire took my headshots and some portrait shots of me and I really enjoyed the entire proces. Right off the bat, he asked if I had any music I wanted to plug in. Also he is very fast with replying to emails and helping you prepare. I felt very comfortable during the shoot. I havnt gotten my pictures yet but I'm positive that they will be great because he sent me some samples. He really knows his stuff. :)

Steve did a great job with my professional headshots. I had a chance to look at some of his other works and also found them to very well-done. Steve has a friendly approach to his clients at ease and had me laughing in quite a few of the shots. The session was not rushed, and Steve even offered more time if I wanted additional proofs to review. I saw that he had captured the professional look I was seeking in short order; so, additional time was not needed. I am very pleased with Steve's final product(s), and I would recommend him to a colleague or a friend.

When my company began rebranding in 2017, it was time to put away our mismatched collection of guest-at-a-wedding "headshots" and get a coherent look for all 20+ staff. Nick was patient, professional and handled our diverse personalities in both our Oakland and LA offices with grace. Thank you Nick!

Flo came in to take headshots at our office. She was on time, very warm, and it was easy to communicate with her. She found good lighting indoors, and the photos have turned out great! She took multiple shots, yet she was pretty quick - a couple of minutes and I was done :)

My session with Kalima was wonderful. She was on time, let me look at my photos as we worked, explained every step of the process (including editing) and gave me all my photos for my personal use after the session in an easy-to-download format. Communicating with her was never an issue - she always responded promptly (within 24 hours, usually way less time) to my emails and phone calls. Her studio was clean and well-lit. I felt very comfortable with her behind the camera and her friendly, warm, professional demeanor put me at ease (and I usually hate getting my photos taken!). She gave me a steal of a price for some amazing, high quality headshots and I have been getting immediate responses from casting directors and a lot of auditions ever since I got them! Thanks so much Kali for your work!
