  1. Alan is amazing…I didn’t even feel like I was in a photo shoot…I felt like I was hanging out with one of my good friends, who just so happened to be taking multiple pictures of me during our conversation. This showed in my headshots, they all look very natural. Pretty impressive, considering these were my first ever headshots. I feel like Alan is the photographer you finally land after you’ve had 3 or 4 bad sessions…I lucked out and got him for my first ones.

    This guy knows his stuff, and he comes up w/ stuff on the spot, very individual. He came up w/ a makeshift lighting setup out of nowhere and it turned out great…a true artist. After all the years of experience he already has…he was STILL learning new things about photography, watching some videos online…while my pictures were being loaded onto his computer…about lighting. Pretty nuts for a guy who’s traveled the world doing photography. He’s one of those guys who has a true passion for photography, and it shows in the pictures.

    When I first called he talked to me for 15 minutes about how excited he was for the shoot…the fact he was the only headshot photographer who took time out of his day to talk to me about something other than the number of looks I get for the price, was great. He also has some assistants who are very helpful as well…when you walk into his home you feel very welcome.

    I never knew headshots could be this fun, but they were. I’d do it again in a second.

    1. Thank you that was a beautiful letter. I just wanted to say one thing. You are so lucky you found me. No really thank you letters like this make it all seem worth it
      Thanks

      Best of luck with your new photos,
      Alan
