I contacted Adam Southard for new theatrical headshots. After reviewing several quotes and talking with potential photographers, I was most impressed with Adam's portfolio and his quick turn around time to answer my questions. Because I needed so many different looks, I also needed a photographer with a great eye and who could help me get the shots I needed (all in one shoot). I signed up for the headshot package - 6 looks for $300. I arrived to the shoot hair and makeup ready and had a friend who assisted me with the photos. Adam was very friendly to us both and I know immediately that the shoot would go well. Adam is based out of a home studio, so he has different backdrops and lighting inside his living room studio. It is a very comfortable atmosphere, again, making it much easier to get great shots. For each of the six different looks Adam took some inside the studio and then we went outside for a different lighting and feel. For this reason I feel I got such a great array of looks in a relatively short shoot! Following the photo shoot I received a dropbox file of all of my photos, in roughly three hours. I reviewed the photos with my agent and we selected twelve that were best for retouching. Adam immediately touched up the photos and sent them to me via dropbox. I had a few other finicky things I needed fixed in the photos (as per agents' request) and Adam very graciously fixed these and sent them back to me the following day. I came away with a great selection of photos that I can use for diverse roles/work. I give Best La Headshots/ Adam Southard 5 stars and fully recommend him to any and all actors. He is an outstanding photographer and also very kind and easy to work with (this is not always the case with photographers!). You will be very happy with the results!

We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

Brad Zangwill and staff are by far the most amazing photographers ever--would Never have photography done with anyone else. This project was our wedding. Of course we wanted everything perfect--and it was. Brad shows such enthusiasm, creativity, and sensitivity to what we wanted. He suggested things I didn't even think to do. He was so very easy to get a hold of--always responding back to me--Same Day!! He was always on time. The quality of the pictures were outstanding, all at reasonable cost, and he is just one easy man to work with. Because he kept his cost down, I was able to include other things--like a little interview of us that he showed at the wedding before the ceremony started. People really loved that! No need to look further--he is your man!! I am happy to recommend him and would be happy to speak with anyone individually as well...just call. 909-240-9211--kathy

I needed new work headshots and a family photo with my 3 dogs. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I received bids from 5 local photographers. I decided to to with John Glover because of the precision and great attention to detail I noticed in his sample photos. John's photos came out nothing short of amazing, he even captured all my dogs at attention at once. My headshots came out better than any headshots I've ever taken. Highly recommend using him.

My family and I had a great experience with Sheryl. We had a huge family photo shoot due a very meaningful reunion- with a newborn, several Oct. birthday celebrants, and a family member that has been in remission with cancer for one year to the date. I was coming from out of state and I searched online for photographers. What caught my attention and what drew me to Sheryl was her great eye and great shots from her portfolio. The colors in her pictures were vivid and creative and wanted to have memorable family photo shoot. She was very professional, easy to contact and talk with. One family member has to be careful with large crowds due to health issues, and she worked well with the space we had. She was resourceful, efficient and accommodating. And she worked well with all the kids- which were 6 in total! Overall, I highly recommend Sheryl for her professionalism, her talent, and for her thoughtfulness.

Danielle was our wedding photographer for our April 10th wedding. She was amazing! She was very easy to work with and very personalable. Very easy to get along with personality. I felt very comfortable around her and she was really good at directing us for different positions for pictures. You could tell she loves what she does. Her passion really comes out in her work. She also loved my picture ideas that I suggested as well. She really captured the moment for us. Can't wait to see all the pictures! I would be excited to use her again for a future!!

Susan is an amazing photographer.  The pictures look like they belong in the hospitals (labor and delivery wing) and in magazines. I was so happy when she took time with the baby and didn't rush. She was so loving and understanding and we even stopped between the shoot to feed baby. When baby was crying, she encouraged me to stop and pick her up to calm her and then we would start again whereas at other studios I felt rushed and like I was inconveniencing them. She has an amazing imagination and she was relentless to find the perfect shot for the baby. When the baby was too fussy she figured out a way to take the shots of her ON ME!! You can't even tell I was holding her. In my opinion, that is truly amazing! You could really tell this is a talent and true passion of Susan's. The pictures came out so amazing and I would definetly use her again for any of our photographic needs.

My first experience with Kenny was an email exchange. The exchange was friendly, energetic and positive and set the tenor and tone for the entire experience. A phone conversation ensued, and that was again positive and friendly and upbeat. In fact, Kenny is not only a professional, but he’s one who is enthusiastic about his chosen métier. I mentioned that I’m a serious amateur photographer and he immediately jumped at the chance to talk about his passion. In other words, Kenny is not only interested in the business end of things but truly enjoys his work and talking about it. I immediately felt comfortable with him. Kenny was the first of several photographers from Thumbtack that were on my list of contacts. But, as a result of the very positive conversation I had with him, I decided to hire him right then and there. The day of the photo session Kenny was ready to go on time. He welcomed me warmly into his studio and we proceeded to create some very nice looking professional head shots and 3/4 shots. Probably because Kenny remembered talking to me about my interest in photography, he explained things as he went along such as how and why he was lighting his subject in a certain way. He loves “talking shop” and I think this is a sign of someone dedicated to his art. I think this kind of individual makes the best professional. And the proof is borne out of the results. Kenny created some very nice photos about which I’ve already received numerous compliments and enthusiastic praise from family, friends and colleagues alike. I would definitely hire Kenny again. And… I still enjoy talking to him about photography. We still exchange emails and he’s still friendly and genuine. I can highly recommend Kenny to you for your professional photo needs.

Hugh is a great guy, a real pro photographer, easy to work with, and creative at a thumbtack competitive rate. I'm a Realtor and have worked with other photographers before. Set a time to meet and he even scouted the area beforehand for multiple locations ready to shoot; and spent a lot of time with us too. Offered a proof sheet, we picked out favorite photos, and he retouched the photos and delivered with a fast turnaround. Will use him again.
