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!

We needed a photographer who understood our vision for a project we were doing involving taking quick head shots of people within our church and Ivan was great! He had quick turn around on photos and we'd definitely use him again if we needed another photographer. Very professional, showed up on time and ready to work. Easy to access by phone and email. We were pleased with the end product!

Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

MacTaggart Media worked with my organization during a three day conference in San Diego and everyone with our company was impressed with her professionalism and the high quality of her work. Over the years, I have engaged photographers all around the country for corporate events and Kelli MacTaggart is the best I've ever hired.

If you're looking for the best in quality, look no further. I do research for a living and checked out many top-of-the-line photographers before choosing to work with John. His knowledge, detail, and professionalism was exceptional. Everything he promised before, during, and after the shoot he delivered on time and just as he said it would be. Simply the best.

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.

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.

I worked with Amina Touray when shooting my album cover in May 2013, which ended up with a NAACP Image Nomination! We shot outside in Pasadena during 3-4 hours and I felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Amina and her make up artist were on time, ready for me and listened to my concerns and specific needs regarding the make up and angles of the shooting my body. I was very impressed with her way of giving me instructions and feedback, which helped me get what I wanted-the perfect pic for an album cover. The only thing that could have been better, was the area to get my make up done at, but that's more of a convienience issue than a must. Amina is by far one of the most talented photographers I've worked with, and I've since done 2 more shoots with her, as well as purchased her services for 2 friends of mine, so that they could get to feel like a superstar for a day, like I did.

Dino is a pleasant and creative photographer. He was easy to communicate with and arrived on time. I never felt rushed and he wanted to try another location when I was ready to call it a day. He was right, those photos are fabulous! Besides being a good businessman, his exposure is perfect, focus is crisp, framing is excellent, and I will find it hard to narrow down my choices. I highly recommend Dino and Aloha Photography!

She was so much fun to work with! We went to a few different locations and shot for a long time and I enjoyed ever second. She really boosted my modeling portfolio and the pictures from the shoot are now on my comp cards. One of my favorite photoshoots by far (and I have done a lot). Also, I got the pictures back in a good amount of time.

Thank you Mukaila for being such a great photographer for my son's first birthday! My guests thought that the pictures turned out well. Mukaila communicated well through email with specifics of our party. He also arrived on time and was able to take pictures of all the details of our party like I wanted. He was also able to be inconspicuous when he needed to be to get all the action pictures. Turn around time for the pictures was only a week. That is a lot quicker than a lot of other photographers that I have worked with before. If we ever have another event, I would definitely get a hold of Mukaila again.

We are an LED Lighting Company that had just changed the lights for the airport and hired Ling to do the job. Initially, we hired a guy for $400 who claimed to do great work and had photos in his portfolio to show for it. The guy turned out to be a total phony, where his photos did not match the portfolio at all. At that point, we became skeptical of the hiring photographers on Thumbtack. So we found Ling, who was willing to do a sample shoot for us then the real shoot the next day. His pricing is really fair for the quality of work he has done for us. We absolutely love his photos, it blew our minds away. He can make the lighting and the background look absolutely amazing. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photography in this field.

Hollie makes you feel comfortable in your element and knows how to guide you in the right direction to get the exact look that you want. Unlike most photographers she takes the time to connect with you to get a better understanding of what you want. By far, the best photography I've ever worked with.
