About

I had the most amazing experience with Josh! He really listened to what I wanted for my professional headshots. The look, feel and locations were spot on. He makes you feel very comfortable and has a great sense of humor to loosen up the moment to get the shot you want! I would absolutely partner with him again for a shoot and would recommend him!

About

As a working actor, I've had many sets of headshots over the past 15 years. It's always a little stressful knowing who to go to and then once you've found them, relaxing and having faith that they will capture what you need. I've had the pleasure of working with Don 4 times over the last 3 years (for headshots and shooting video auditions). Working with him is effortless, always a pleasure, lots of fun and produces great shots that get me seen. What more could you ask for?

About

Cerraeh is amazing. I cannot say enough great things about her. I hired her for my son's Bar Mitzvah and then rehired her for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. The quality and craftmanship of her photos is exquisite and she had such great ideas. Everyone from 0 to 90 looked amazing in her photos. Cerraeh also has such a fun energy and spirit, but also a very calm demeanor, which was very comforting to me, as I was a little nervous being the mom and hostess. She's very flexible and accommodating. I would highly highly recommend her for any occasion. It was a joy working with her and she made all the family and guests feel so comfortable and it showed in the people's smiles and expressions in the pictures. Cerraeh took a lot of pictures and I had so many beautiful album/frame-worthy pictures to share with family and friends.

About

Matthew Mitchell is the person I respect most in the entire city of Los Angeles. He is the most punctual and dependable photographer I have ever had the pleasure to work with, and because of his many powerful connections, he is the sole reason that I am currently living and modeling successfully in Los Angeles. He was my talent scout at age 15, and with the help of his incredible photography, has truly made me into the model I am today (currently signed with LA Models) In my opinion, Matthew Mitchell is one of the most brilliant people in this entire city. He can solve any problem, and handle any situation, without ever getting his fabulous gucci shoes scruffed up. He is truly a unique character and will never fail to make you laugh with his witty banter. The headshots he has taken of me have helped me book multiple fashion modeling jobs and even a few television gigs. I would trust Matthew with my life, and especially with my career.

About

Live your moment and let me capture it! As a lifelong observer of people, Linda Kasian is perpetually mesmerized by the vast range of emotions exhibited by human beings. A daughter of musicians, Linda spent most of her childhood on the fringes of the orchestra in Kishinev, Moldova, absorbing music and finding inspiration in it. Her journey continued in Israel, and later took her to the United States. Living in and experiencing different cultures heightened Linda's curiosity about people, and she began to uncover a common thread: she observed that, while we are all distinct individuals, we are connected through the commonality of our emotions, through the universal truth found in love. Linda's fascination turned into a deeply rooted passion after the birth of her son. The light and love that Linda experienced as a mother has motivated and inspired her life and art. In her photographs, Linda seeks to capture fragments of life; moments in which people express love, passion, unity and purity with one another and the natural world. Linda freezes these simple moments in time, and invites her audience to observe, reconnect, learn,and recall such moments as they might have been experienced in their own lives by viewing the world through her lens. She offers: * Event photography * Wedding, Bar Mitzvah, and sweet 16 photography * Headshots * Maternity, women and man photography * Children/Baby photography * Product photography * Architectural photography

About

I specialize in actors' head shots, portraits and small product photography. I have been a serious photographer since the early 1960s, and had my own black and white darkroom for many years in the pre-digital days when everyone was shooting film. All of my head shot and portrait work, so far, has come from referrals. I have done many different types of photography, although I like portrait and small product photography (sometimes very small) the best. I also buy and sell cameras, photo equipment, binoculars and other optical equipment on Ebay, and have been doing all my own product photos for about 10 years. A big reason for my Ebay success is the extra effort I put into getting good photos. I am available for shooting at my place or will travel to location. My minimum fee is $150, with an hourly charge of $75-$150. Travel to distant locations will cost extra. If you think $75-$100 per hour is high, it is not, because I typically spend 30-60 minutes for each hour of shooting time in final processing of the photos (adjusting brightness, contrast, color balance, cropping) to get the best final results. You are not paying extra for this service. Price includes a full-resolution CD with all photos shot in the session. If the photos are not acceptable, I will re-shoot for no extra charge.

About

Headshots are an actor's number one marketing tool in this business! As an actor, I understand the importance of having a headshot that not only looks good but also captures each person's individual personality. Having a photograph that catches agents and casting directors' attention is what is going to set you apart from the rest. Yes; there are some of you who are natural and love to have their picture taken, but over the past 5 years, I have found that most actors do not like having a camera shoved in their face. My 6th sense allows me to know when you are not being yourself in a photograph. I take time to get to know you as a person first. We chat over a cup of coffee, so I can observe the small details of your personality, and when the time comes to snap the photograph, I will be able to pull that side out of you with ease. My clients will tell you that they felt so comfortable in front of me. It was almost as if we were just hanging out. The casting directors will give you one shot, but your headshot will leave them remembering you! Check out some of the testimonials on the site! We offer west Hollywood headshots.

About

I have been an active artist for over twenty years. I specialize in fine art photography, but I also shoot concerts, band promos, editorial, fashion, corporate, portrait, headshots, as well as architectural and interiors (no weddings, sorry). I excel in shooting natural portraits utilizing the natural settings and lighting conditions to capture the desired image. Utilizing color, sepia tones, and black and white, I seek to illustrate the emotional context of the shot. Danielle 1404photo
