Introduction: 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.

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.

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

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!

  • 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.
