    I was very satisfied, with the outcome of my sitting. I generally am not happy, with my own portraits, and Alex did a great job. He took a lot of shots and tried several settings, to provide me with the best choice. The touchups were just right - not too much or too little. The finished photos were exactly what I was looking for.

    Alex was responsive, professional, and did a fantastic job! He was able to put me at ease instantly, offered an expert opinion on how the headshots should look for my purposes, and took plenty of shots to ensure there were some good ones. And in fact, I had difficulty choosing! I'm very pleased with his work and give him my highest recommendation.

    Alex was great! I needed a headshot for work in 2 days and an updated photo to post on my Linked-in account. He responded within minutes of my post on Thumbtack and the next day during my lunch hour I was in his studio. He worked on the photos I selected that night and had them sitting in my in-box the very next morning. He's very professional and made me feel very comfortable. Thank you Alex, I receive a lot of compliments on how professional my headshot is and has helped me make more business connections on linked-in.

    Alex was great to work with! During the shoot, he was professional and courteous, and he made me feel at ease. He took lots of shots, and the hardest part was selecting the final images. The resulting portrait is very professional and perfect for business, and I feel it accurately portrays me in a flattering manner. Definitely well done! Thank you, Alex!

    I have always DREADED having a professional headshot done -- past results were less than flattering. Alex took hundreds of photos, passed along to me the best to choose from, and then did a great job in editing. I came away with two great pics (in both high and lo-res) that I am proud to use! I highly recommend Mr. Thorne's services. I'll definitely use him again when these photos "wear out."

    Alex was prompt with responding to my inquiry, took a lot of pictures with different outfits, turnaround was short, and final proofs were excellent.

    I need head shots for some professional brochures. My experience with Alex was superior. He was very easy to work with and very courteous. The session took less than an hour. He took a lot of shots which gave me the opportunity to be very selective about the photos that I liked the most ... with so many great shots to choose from, it was very difficult for me to decide on a single one. Anyway, he subsequently got the proofs to me right away and finished the project the day after. He was quick, extremely talented and very reasonably priced for his work. I would highly recommend Alex for anyone seeking outstanding photography.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Headshots and portraits photographer for corporate, executives and acting and entertainment clients. I provide online galleries where you can review your headshots. I retouch final images and make them available for downloading to your computer. You receive a high resolution image for printing and a web-ready image for using on social media websites.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would suggest that people looking for headshots look closely at the photographer's portfolio to make sure they like the lighting and retouching. Some photographers do too much retouching and the final image looks fake. Make sure the photographer is willing to work with you on how much retouch you want. Also, I would ask about any additional charges are included, such as the ability to use your digital images as you please. I alway give my clients a high resolution image and low resolution image for them to us any way they like. Bottom line, ask a lot of questions and get several quotes before deciding on your photographer.
