How does your service stand out?

Don Tinling's help and support as a headshot photographer is what seperates him from the other thousands of photographers who shoot headshots in Los Angeles. He did not reach the level of success he has received by being totally self absorbed in his own personal agenda. No! The focus of his services are to help the actor to get the headshots they need to move to the next level in thier career, weather that is to land a new agent or manager or to get into see the casting agent who will cast them in their next job. Don's studio is set up and ready for your personal experience. You don't have to suffer through the awkward experience of going over to someone's home and have your makeup done at the kitchen table. Don has a totally professional studio set up to make the experience perfect to get results.

    I have worked with Don Tinling on multiple shoots. His level of professionalism and quality is what keeps bringing me back. You can tell he loves what he does and his passion is always reflected in the work. His attention to detail is meticulous and he goes the extra distance to get the best shot. On our last shoot I had an unusual lighting idea. Don’s expertise and creative spirit made it a reality. I will definitely work with Don again. He is always a reliable source for excellence.

    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?

    Don is a great photographer, did a great job on my professional head shots and made me feel at ease because I'm not a fan of having my photo taken (I'm a psychologist). I highly recommend him!

    Don is an incredibly talented photographer, upon arriving at his gorgeous studio he took the perfect head shots for my career. His studio is clean and so well lit. He is a joy to work with and really made the whole process enjoyable! I have been recommending him to everyone i know!!

    Don has a natural charismatic way about him that helps one relax into the present moment; something incredibly important when having a photograph taken. I can't recommend him enough! I've known him for years and would suggest him to anyone looking for a great headshot. It doesn't hurt that he is gorgeous either!

    Don is not only an incredible photographer, he is also funny and fun to work with. He brings a great sense of ease to every shoot. He took my headshots in natural light and it was one of the best experiences I had, sometimes they can be tense and weird...not with Don. He is a gem and the photos came out great!

    Working with Don was awesome! He took the time to create a lot of different looks and was very friendly and helpful during the shoot. Thanks Don!

    Don manages to capture your essence. I love his use of light the way it made my pics feel clean and bright.

    Don is such a great photographer. I have had a few sessions with him and plan to go back for more in the future. He is super easy to work with. He's both fun and professional, and he knows just what to say to get the right shot. I always get lots of compliments on the pics he does for me and they have also gotten me lots of publicity and work too. I highly recommend getting your pics done by Don.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Not every headshot photographer is going to be right for you. What Don Tinling offers actors is a little different than what most headshot photographers offer. Don Tinling works as an acting coach to direct you infront of the camera to really connect with the people "on the other side of the lens" who are going to be looking at your photograph. Don says "I often get comments from the actors and actresses that work with about the camera skills I teach them that they never learned about in any acting class." Don started studying acting as a teenager with some of the greats in the business but an acting career was not in the cards for him an he went to work behind the camera. Don feels like actors are his family. He loves working with actors.
