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!

Very good experience with Dan who took some headshots, portraits and "action" photos of me teaching a class. Some photos definitely came out better than others, but this could have been my error in not hiring a stylist to help with the little details.

I used Stylebee for both hair and makeup for my engagement session in SF. Chantelle and Stylebee were so wonderful and flexible (I changed my appointment to a super early 4:30am start - yikes!). Shannon was my MUA and hair stylist - She arrived right on time and did such an amazing job. I don't think I've ever looked so glamorous! She made me feel so beautiful and confident for my engagement photos. Highly recommended!! Thank you, ladies!!

Tri is a friendly guy who does great work. He's responsive and flexible. We did three headshots with him and were able to schedule it right away. I appreciate that he came to our office. He knows what he's doing. We'll use him again.

Cheshire and I have worked together on many photography projects. We've done publicity photoshoots, fashion shoots, and headshots. I am always impressed and delighted by how easy and enjoyable the photoshoots are. We always have so much fun and Cheshire always puts me at ease! He's alwsys open to my input and I truly trust his artist vision. I highly recommend him!

I can't recommend Kenny and his company CameraShock Photography enough. Tasked with tough assignments that included product photography, headshots, and lifestyle photos, Kenny always came through and his results were superb. He's extremely eager to please his customers and will go the extra mile to make sure the photos are pristine. His rates are extremely fair and will complete his jobs as originally agreed upon. As a creative professional myself, I wholly recommend Kenny and would not hesitate to work with him again in the future.

I am very happy with the headshots, the whole process was wonderful. It was easy to find parking near the studio and it was easy to follow Jen's direction during the shoot. It is clear to me that Jen has done this a lot and really enjoys the process. Anyone that thinks they can do their own headshot is wasting time. I am very relieved how quickly Jen was able to get the shots taken and delivered to me. I hope I will need more photos in future, that is how enjoyable this process was.

Steve had a relaxed presence that put me at ease when arriving to the studio. The studio was small, but was the equipment was very nice. I utilized his services to get acting headshots, and before beginning to take the pictures, he had a handy book that visually showed how good and bad headshots look. He effectively guided me through various poses, and I had a lot of fun the whole time! Oh, and the photos looked fantastic in the end. Overall, what you'll get from working with Steve is a kind and talented photographer who'll make sure you're getting the bang for your buck.

I hired SFImagery (Rick) to take some headshots. I am not the type of person who practices their smile in the mirror or makes any special effort when posing for pictures. So, I was not exactly nervous about getting some corporate head shots, but I was not looking forward to it. Rick was great. He made everything very easy, from scheduling the session to the actual shoot. He paid meticulous attention to lighting, positioning, clothing, etc., and he made me feel very comfortable. Best of all, the pictures turned out great, which of course, is what really matters.

I needed a professional headshot for business right away. Irina adjusted her schedule and booked an appointment for me the next day! I am far from being a sexy super model and absolutely despise having my photo taken, however Irina managed to work magic! Irina's kindness and professionalism was very comforting. She's phenomenal! Excellent service. Love my headshot!!

I had an urgent need to get headshots done for a website. He was super responsive via messaging and came to my home within an hour! Not only that but he turned the photos immediately and I had digital access within a couple hours. He was efficient, had immense attention to detail and great suggestions to get things done right.

I contracted with Paul for some work type headshots for LinkedIn. He was very responsive, had a very fair price, and was able to do the work quickly. He took lots of shots, which was good as it gave me time to relax, and the later ones were better. The follow up editing was done as part of the quoted price, and I was very happy with the result.
