Thank you, Alan for such beautiful pictures! We enjoyed our special time together with you and La Fitte. You have such a talent for capturing the perfect moment, the perfect look. You are a master of lighting. Thank you for your kind spirit, and your creativity. God Bless!

Dear Alan, You took my headshots this morning, and I walked out of your studio feeling two things: 1. I felt like a star! 2. I felt like I’d made a friend Thank you for a beautiful insuring of laughter, creativity, and fun. In a city like LA, where everyone is fighting and struggling to get noticed, you find a person’s unique beauty in a seamless, simple way. Your photos don’t have to fight for the spotlight, because they radiate in and of themselves. So thank you again-for your talent, your art…and of course, my FABULOUS new head shots!!!
|Location:Los Angeles, CA USA|
Alan, I can not begin to say how much I LOVE my new headshots! You are the best, which is why I refuse to shoot with anyone else. I didn’t even feel like you were taking my picture. You are a man proud of his work and it shows in every single photo you took that day. I had a terrible time deciding which ones to make my final choice because they all were phenomenal! Every single person I have shown them to has had the same reaction…THOSE ARE GREAT! Not only am I proud of them myself, I am being called in to audition time and time again! I’m ready to knock down every agent’s door in Los Angeles and plow right on through. Just wait and see what will happen, I promise it will be spectacular:) Thanks again, I will keep in touch.

My whole experience with Alan was amazing! the make-up artist was fantastic! i loved the whole photo taking experience, usually i hate how i look in photos but Alan made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and i loved how i looked in every photo, i also loved that he let me take pictures with his adorable dog Lafete!! After i got the pictures back from being retouched i couldnt believe how amazing they looked! i had such a great experience, i recommed Alan to anyone!!!!
i had met you (as you might remember) quite a few years ago. I was taken with your warmth and personality. When it came time for me to take pictures this time, I looked you up. Am I glad i did. From the moment i walked through the door, I was greeted with a feeling of this is right.. i looked through your book and was so impressed I booked immediately. This was the most enjoyable session, laughing from the time we started to the time we finished, yet still professional. What a joy to work with you.
Hello Alan It was a pleasure working with you yesterday. I absolutely love your film noir work and was very happy to find a photographer who is not afraid of getting creative. So many in the industry are inflexible to playing with ideas. They are set on a structure and fail to see that art is about difference and ways of expressing it. As an artist I need a photographer who is on my same page, who understands my differences and is able to bring them to life. You brought out the artist in me and I’m thankful for that.
Dear Alan, Well I’ve just got to thank you for the terrific photo session and beautiful finished photos you did for me. You made it such a fun experience and very easy for a novice such as me. I must share with you that the very next day after mailing out my pictures to agents, I received a call from an agency that wanted to represent me. I interviewed with him and several days later, he sent me out on an audition for a commercial for Microsoft. It all started with your pictures!
You are an artist. I (and everyone else) can’t say enough good things about your photos, but let me try… In the ONE year after taking photos with you I have: –Signed with 3 Big-Time talent agents! One each for theatrical, commercial & print representation. –Starred in an independent feature film that will premier at next year’s Sundance Film Festival! –Gues Starred on an episode of MTV’s new show, “the Andy Dick Show!” All because of you! These are all miracles, and you are the miracle worker! Before I took pictures with you I didn’t have a career and now the most amazing things are happening! I can’t thank you enough, not only for the photos but the prestige & professionalism that rubs off you onto everyone fortunate enough to find your help.
You are certainly a “master” in the photography field. Each finished photo looks as if it’s a portrait painted with a high price tag. I also want to acknowledge your integrity in wanting to ” line-up” to your reputation. It seems as if every picture is “your child” and is important to you. I appreciate who you are, and of course, your talent. If you ever tire of photography you could also be a comedian.

Alan Weissman’s work is the best I’ve seen, his pictures capture the essence and beauty of the moment and like magic – we find ourselves sharing his experience. His works of China introduces us to a world only few get to see. Although Alan’s work is demonstrative of the incredible talents he possesses – his attitude towards his subjects is equally kind. Working with Alan is a joy, I love his warmth and creativity. When Alan works his magic – I am confident – the shots will be something I’ll be proud of…
Sharon Tay, Anchor/KABC NEWS
Alan, thank you so much. I love my pictures and disk, WOW!!! Alan, you’re amazing. I enjoyed every minute with you, and I’m super excited about submitting these. I know that the type of work I’ll get called in on is based on the quality of my headshots. I always knew that your shots would open doors for me. I’m so excited and grateful. Again, thank you Alan, for your gifts and talents, your passion, your beautiful creative way. you kick ASS!
Dear Alan, Thank you sooooooooo much for the great headshots! Everyone loves them. The reproduction place even asked me for one for their wall. My manager and agents love them. I just signed with Cavaleri & Assoc for commercials and CED for print, and have a couple potential theatrical agents.. thanks to your shots (not bad for being in LA for 10 weeks.) Thanks again! You’re the best!

Alan I shot with you several years ago and looking back I learned what it was like to be treated like a professional working in the business although I had little credit. Several years later and a few small films under my belt I have realized it all started by working with someone who was so skilled in the art that it inspired me to do the same.

Alan WILL get THE shot… and you won’t even realize it! Alan lets his love for photography, his child-like creativity, and his joy of people guide him as you spend a few hours together, laughing, talking, and -oh yeah- taking the best pictures of yourself you have ever seen! While taking literally hundreds of shots, Alan kept me focused on other things; favorite tv shows, my ex-girlfriend, even my near car crash with William Shatner on my way over! It brought out a wide range of emotion, and he captured all of it expertly! He is a good man, and he is GREAT at what he does! Thank you Alan!

Hey Alan, I hope all is well in your hood? Just wanted to say THANK YOU, for a great job that you do. After 20 years in this business, I always dread the day I have to do a photo shoot! I’m not much into taking photo’s, but for some reason I really enjoyed & felt so good about the shoot yesterday! You actually made me look great to my liking! A great face for radio that I have! Hahahaha! Alan, thank you again for everything & I know that we will be working together real soon. Please keep in touch with me about the project we spoke about. I’m really interested in helping out! Take care. Victor Zaragoza HOT 92.3

I have had an absolute BALL! Have learned so much and fallen in love with Hollywood! I have definitely decided to move there and pursue my acting career! It was so exciting to meet people so high up in the industry and they have inspired me to believe in my dreams, because it can happen. I have LOVED meeting everyone and have REALLY had a wonderful experience. All in all I loved it! Hollywood was amazing it surpassed all my expectations. The experience was amazing and I made some great friends. We arrived at the airport and were picked up in a huge hummer limo and from a guy whoâ™s never been in a limo before this was truly unbelievable. The next day we were on our way to the Hollywood Hills to take our headshots from Alan Weissman a top Hollywood photographer. TJ was hilarious and also really helpful in everything we done. This company doesnâ™t work with ordinary people they have contacts with top top people. I really enjoyed the photoshoot with Alan Weissman. We got make-up and hair done by the pros, Earl and TJ made us all feel so comfortable, it felt more like a learning and growing experience, rather than work. I felt very well looked after and almost spoiled. I mean the limousine and then the photosession with Alan Weissmann. Iâ™ve been taking loads of pictures in my life, cos back in Austria I was working as a model â“ I had NEVER taken such good pictures!!

I had a very great time while photoshoot, I loved atmosphere, makeup done with Rady, and I fell in love with your dog, je lui embrasse !:) I am astonished by your vision. Thank you very much for your help! Hope to work with you again!! With love
Alan!! Thank you so much for the phtotshoot today. It was great getting to see you work especially with me as the subject 🙂 I dont think the reallity of the situation has hit me yet, but spending the morning with you an TJ at the house was a truely aswesome expereance. The photo’s you took of me will be treasured for a long long time. I hope i get to see or work with you again in the future. I appoligise if i may have come across as a bit quiet or shy but the whole expereance had me a bit dumb-struck! Take care and Thank You So So So Much!!
It took a long journey for me to think I deserved the best of anything but I’m thrilled I’m finally there and could hire such a fabulous photographer! It’s been a week since the shoot and I’m still going over each glorious shot knowing I could choose from many. You caught my personality and essence and just knew I’m a glamor girl at heart. The lighting is fantastic and I’m so glad I listened and trusted you! I’ll call soon with my final choices but for all you actors looking for a great headshot -just book the man and get the best photos in town!.

Alan, Thank you so much for your kind heart and generosity! As a result of your insightful photography, I have landed an agent! Thank You so Much and Many Blessings To You!
27th March. After an exhausting acting class before auditions, I finally got the box with all my headshots made by Alan. As I opened it… I suddenly realized that all the training classes, theatrical experiences, and acting background…all this “made sense”. That was ME! my essence and my personality.
Alan, you are not only a Celebrity Photographer and a great Professionist, you work with your Heart. And for a passionate Italian actress like me, shooting with you has been such a great, deep, amazing axperience!
Hope to come back soon to L.A. and to keep in touch with U!! Big hug, Barbara

Thank you for a fun! shoot Alan,you truely are wonderful people. I had a wonderful time the photo turned out looking GREAT!. xx leah marie East
Alan, I was so happy to work with you… your pictures reflect your personality… you’re great. You made me feel really comfortable ever since the beginning of the session. I couldn’t stop laughing when you were around.
You’re full of creativity, you love your job and it really shows in the results. I love my headshot.
Thank you so much!!!
Alan was truly amazing, what I mean by this he was patient, I was with him for over three hours and was truly a professional determined to get the right shot, I was pleased and have so many different looks it will be hard to choose from. But make no mistake people, if Alan shoots you and you do your mass mailing, it won’t be the pictures fault no one called, thats how good he is in the fact that the picture is actually talking to you, and he has a great sense of humor, and will make you feel at home.
Alan is not only a great photographer but a great man. He is very easy going and immediately has a way of putting a person at ease if they are nervous at all. He knows what types of shots to take and how to get them to maximize the chances of whatever your goals may be. I mean I was on a heavy dose of qualudes when I showed up and he still worked with me(JOKING)! Seriously Alan literally took almost all day with me to make sure everything was the best it could be. He went out of his way which is something that 99% of the people do not do in my experience. I say its no wonder he is one of the top photographers around. Thank you Alan.
Alan is amazing. No wonder he is considered the best. He will not only capture the shot, but a dozen more. It’s almost impossible to choose a headshot because literally everyone is incredible. To add to it he is so much fun to shoot with, and his staff is so warm hearted it is ridiculous. A def must. Thank you Alan! Will def. be using you again.
Hi Alan, just wanted to say thank you again for taking the best photos ever on me. I have had many headshots taken over the years, but the ones you took was by far the best! You were highly recomended and im so glad that i choose you. You even let me plug my ipod into your computer durng the photo shoot. I will tell everyone i know who needs great headshots about you! Thanks again Alan! youre the best.
Thanks Alan. I love my photos! accomplished the two looks I wanted. I can’t wait to send them out. Your a great photographer.
Alan is a true professional. From the day I went to visit with him (and ended up sitting talking with Caroline for about an hour while Alan was busy doing what it is he does, that’s being a photographer, ya know.) I felt comfortable with him and he has a grand sense of what needs to take place in order for the actor or model to project themselves in the most positive way. To any up and coming talent out there I would suggest they work with Alan and his assistant(s) as they have what it takes. That being said, I’m off…
