Dorothy Shi directed me throughout my acting headshot photo shoot with excellent results. I’ve already uploaded these photos to various websites, and the photos have not even yet been photoshopped!

Dorothy did a phenomenal job with the headshots I need for an upcoming book release. She is very professional to work with, starting with the session briefing, where she and I discussed the photo's objectives and target audience. She then reviewed the outfits I brought and selected which clothes would work best, and then we did the shoot. It was a very productive but relaxed experience. I can't wait to work with her again.

Don't second guess! Book Dorothy Shi now! Several professional announcements were coming up, and I needed new headshots to reflect how I look today versus five years ago and more reflective of me and my personality. Thankfully, I met Dorothy Shi. Simply put, Dorothy is an excellent photographer. I had the most wonderful experience getting my headshots with her - she's a complete pro. Dorothy has been in the business for 20+ years and had the highest ratings, reviews, and testimonials on all social media and SEO sites, including Google, Thumbtack, and Yelp! We had an intake session over the phone in advance to discuss what I was trying to capture. We discussed the type of setting, backdrops, outfits, and what kind of look I wanted the headshot to convey. Dorothy actively listened and then made suggestions and recommendations on what may enhance the look I was going for. I had not considered these ideas, but a professional like herself would know. In addition to Dorothy's fantastic photography skills, her approach and personality created a comfortable atmosphere, and her experience shined with the many poses she had me go into. Since I needed to showcase different looks, at no time did I feel rushed or that changing my hair and outfit would impede the experience. Dorothy also would stop and show me what was working and which poses I could do better. She gave clear, concise directions and all the patience I needed until I got it right. Dorothy offered water and gave time for hair and makeup touch-ups. Her turn-around time was faster than other photographers offered (24-48 hours), and there were more photos than expected. It made it easier to ensure the look I was going for was captured. I highly recommend Dorothy Shi and will keep her on speed dial and will recommend her whenever anyone is looking for a photographer.

Dorothy is a highly skilled photographer with an expert ability and a discerning artistic eye. She was extremely helpful in guiding me on how to create an effective acting headshot. With an obvious level of expertise, she provided advice on how to dress, style, pose, and select an acting headshot for professional presentation. Highly recommend.
