Amazing photographer. Wonderful man. I just had my photo shoot with Alan and I have to say, I’ve never had a photographer be so detail-oriented, so dedicated, so committed to his work. He spent a lot of time with me, more than other photographers have, to take beautiful photos, and even went out of his way to take a few final shots of me after we had wrapped, because the natural light on my face was “perfect” and he wanted to capture me at that exact moment. So dedicated and full of energy, and so warm, approachable, funny, genuine, humble. He has photographed many celebrities and is a far cry from the typical Los Angeles narcissistic photographers I have met. The hair and makeup artist, Jeffrey, was amazing too, he had me looking my best but still natural. I felt like Alan and I had known each other for years and we had just met. I highly recommend.

I went to Alan to get my headshots taken, and it was an incredible experience. He is so welcoming and warm, made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the shoot, and it was just a lot of fun. His studio manager Morgan, was also really helpful and accommodating to all my questions and concerns, before, during, and after the shoot. The pictures I took turned out great, but more importantly, it was such a pleasant experience, I’ll definitely be going again when I need newer headshots. Quality guy and a very talented photographer!

Thanks again for the great shoot yesterday! “Alan is a tremendous talent who made me feel at home in his studio. His warmth, humor, and creativity made my confidence shoot-up one hundred fold. From the first minute meeting Alan we were on the same page. He’s very perceptive and knew what I wanted before I even articulated it. Upon meeting Alan, I just knew I was going to shoot with him…I didn’t even interview other photographers.” Jon

“Alan Weissman”is the only modern photographer that has captured the lost art of the 1940’s pictures. The 1940″s was truley an era of beauty, sophistication and an honest expression of glamour. This lost art needs to be re-introduced to today’s society and Alans work is doing just that. Susan Gainer EMAP USA publishers/Peterson’s Photographic

Alan- I want to thank you for such outstanding headshots! I have been showing them to my friends and family and they are astounded by how well they turned out! I appreciate everything you have done. I was very impressed with my session and I love that fact that you are never done with something until you are personally satisfied with it. I recall that after we were finished shooting my commercial shot, we previewed them on the television and they weren’t as good as we thought. Being the awesome person you are, you deleted them all and decided we should reshoot them!! Not any photographer would be that kind! You are truly a very talented photographer and care about your clients! I would never shoot with anybody else again! Thank you! Sincerely, Jon Bahnemann

Alan, I’ve got about four friends who are in dire need of some good acting headshots and wanted to let you know in case you are still considering having a mini-working holiday over here…I think I could easily round up a few more but there are four definites… Anyway, let me know whatyou think. Mark is sending me over the printed photos soon, very excited, you made them look really amazing and I’m going to replace the one that has been in all the casting books etc for the past year…It isn’t even remotely in the same league as yours, and looks positively ghastly in comparison!!! Best wishes, Hannah.

This is just a note to thank you from my heart for your speccial efforts and super results on the pictures you took of me. You are certainly a “master” in the photography field. Each finished picture looks as if its a painted portrait with a high price tag. I also want to acknowledge your integrity in wanting to “live up” to your reputation. It seems as if every picture is “your child” and important to you. I appreciate who you are and, of course, your talent. If you ever tire as a photographer, you could also be a comedian. You are entertaining! Thank you for “giving” to others, but “taking” a little more for yourself! Respectfully, Admiringly, Lee Terri

Alan Weissman is a breath of fresh air . . . he’s fun and able to be in-the-moment. After looking at my initial test shots and seeing they were of PERFECT photographic quality (and by that I mean the lighting, coloring and angles) I knew I could relax, have fun and not concern myself with the quality of his work. Because Alan is able to grasp the comfort level of his clients, by the 200th shot — right when I began to feel myself wilt away behind the hot lights — Alan was able to perk me up with his sense of humor and quiet sense of professionalism. This is the first week I’ve been using these new headshots and I’ve already booked two jobs!

Thanks so much,

Alan,

When I came in, somewhat nervous, I felt as if I came into a room

of old friends and when Alan took pictures of me I felt as if he had

known me for years and was able to bring out what I was most proud of.

Even though I understand neither lighting or colors it was obvious

to me that he did when I saw the pictures he had taken.

Alan made me feel relaxed and after only a minute it was clear to me that I was in for a very good time, we laughed and joked around while

he took some of the best shots I have seen of myself.

I had a great time and I felt so secure.

I want to thank you so much for my incredible pictures! I got home yesterday and showed them off to all my friends and called my entire family immediately to tell them how thrilled I was with my head shots. They look better than I could have ever expected. Not to mention,

what a wonderful time I had taking the pictures. It was so fun! You, Caroline, Rita, and everyone else made the experience relaxed, comfortable, and memorable. Now armed with these pictures,

I have so much more confidence to go out in the business.

Thank you for everything Alan, and I promise you haven’t heard

Alan was really great with me. I had been expecting someone who would be really great at taking photos but who would not be willing to spend the time with me. Instead, he and I worked together making sure that the photos were what both HE and I wanted. He was insistent on doing the best he could, and even threw in a couple tips on how to deal with Agents and Managers when they look at your headshots. He was the best, I am so happy I got my headshots done by him.

Thank you again Alan!

You came highly recommended and now I see why.

My manager represents several working actors and comedians and gave me only one name when I asked where I should get headshots done. And when that guy wouldn’t return my phone calls, I called Alan Weisman. Oh, just kidding relax.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to inform you all about Mr. Weissman’s great work.

I recently went to his ‘Studio’ to get my headshots done. His place is incredible; very peaceful, organic, but mainly, very Zen. Lots of plants, quietness, light, but the view.. Beautiful!!

He played music for us (my friend and I), he introduced Lafeet to us (his adorable dog), they did tricks, he was very personal and open. His sense of humor and personality are superb.

I had a great experience.

I believe these are just a few of the reasons he is the BEST photographer.

Keep up the amazing work Alan.. a5.gif

Alan! I absolutely LOVED working with you! You are an amazing photographer and you really know how to bring the best out in actors. You make the photo session feel like it isn’t even a photo session. I could barely tell we were taking pictures and they came out amazing! You are great and easy to work with and help to relieve any stress that an actor may have when coming to a session. ALL ACTORS should work with Alan! As actors auditions build up so many nerves and a photo session can be bring out even more nerves than auditions and an actor needs to feel relaxed and comfortable when they’re getting headshots taken. You achieve that. I am so grateful for taking headshots with you because a photo is an actors tool and I feel that I know have a great tool that I can use to get me some great auditions. Thanks so much!

Hi Alan!!!

It’s Harmony! I just want to officially thank you so much for doing my headshots and the beautiful result! They arrived in the mail and across the house I hear my mom screaming and start crying of happiness! The experience itself cannot be described in words! I learned so much and even came out more confident and sure of what I want to do! You are an incredibly nice person and an amazing photographer. I had never really realized how much detail can be put into one shot! I hope you know how much I appreciate the whole experience and privelege it was to work with you. 🙂 My self confidence was boosted and “FUN” was the base of the entire thing. This may sound cheesy but, when we had arrived back home, all I wanted to do was be back learning more about your work and doing different poses! I honestly just had so much fun! I really hope to see you in the near future and maybe even get to work with you again. Please give your adorable doggy a big hug and kiss for me! Thank you a million more times…

Hey there Alan!

Today I braved the hill and picked up the disc of my pictures. Thank you so much. They came out great. Besides the whole deciding thing, I’m excited to get them printed up and start using them. I just have to tell you that you are one of the most real and authentic people I have ever met out here. You made me feel completely comfortable immediately. I mean come on the first thing you did was bet me a dollar that I would walk out of your house smiling. Of course, the horrible gambler that I am, I agreed to take the bet, and then everyone in your office started to place their bets on the table too. That was when I knew I was a gonner….yep I lost. Thanks for the good times (jamming to Spring Awakening, drinking coffee, playing with Lafitte) and the AMAZING pictures!

Talk to you soon,

Dear Alan,

Recently I have my photos done by you for an actress headshot. I must admit I was a little nervous and unsure of what to expect, I haven’t been in front of the camera for years.

The minute I walked in to your amazing studio I felt calm and relaxed. The cool vibe of your place really helped me get comfortable. When I met you and your awesome dog, Lafitte, I knew I had chosen wisely. You accepted me with warmth, patience, and not to mention, professionalism. I felt we bonded right away.

A few days ago I received my photos in the mail and were perfect! You have captured the real me. The way I really feel, it reflects in the photo as soon as you look at it. Thanks to your great skill and talented eye, I feel more confident today to go to an audition knowing they will love my photo. I feel more confident about myself! When I am famous, and I will be, I will be sure to mention the “Great Alan,” the wiz photographer that helped me start my career. So thank you.

Please give my love to Lafitte!

…Alan is honest and real, and strives to not just take a “pretty” photo, but to capture YOU. Anyone can take a “nice” photo and provide you with a “nice” headshot, but to bring real LIFE to a still photo-This is an art form. What I strive to achieve as an actress, as an artist in my own right, Alan achieves in his. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why I was so drawn to him from the start.

During the shoot, Alan was patient, diligent, thoughtful, attentive, audacious, fun, and exciting to work with! A wonderful human being!! And I cannot go without mentioning his sidekick Lafite- who happily came to sit on my feet to calm my nerves and steal Alan’s limelight at every opportunity. (His sidekick happens to be incredibly adorable and of the four-legged variety!)

I was simply beaming when I stepped out of the studio, and was overjoyed when I received my photographs!

I am from Melbourne Australia, and was fortunate enough to stumble across an interview with Alan Weissman. His presence struck me. His genuine care and love of his art so apparent, I was compelled to find out more.

On viewing alanweissman.com, I found that Alan’s work mirrored my first impressions of him. Each subject captured my attention, every portrait so vivid, full of life and so personal. It just so happened that I was planning my second trip to Los Angeles for an acting intensive, and I wanted to book my very first photo session with Alan Weissman!

Thankfully there was an opening during my short stay in California, and Studio Manager Caroline helped me organise my booking every step of the way! Seeing as this would result in me having my first headshot, there was a level of anxiety and uncertainty. I needn’t have worried however, as all my questions were answered, and the studio was in contact with me constantly!

The day finally came and I knew it would be a fun experience! I was welcomed with open arms, and stepped into such a friendly, warm, relaxed, and creative environment…

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…

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!

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!!

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!.

Big hug,

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 a1.gif

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. a1.gif

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.

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…

Hi Caroline, Rex and Alan, I am excited that my picture might be on the homepage, I am an actor, naturally it excits me, right? When I came in, somewhat nervous, I felt as if I came into a room of old friends and when Alan took pictures of me I felt as if he had known me for years and was able to bring out what I was most proud of. Even though I understand niether lighting or colors it was obvious to me that he did when I saw the pictuures he had taken. Alan made me feel relaxed and after only a minute it was clear to me that I was in for a very good time, we laughed adn joked around while he took some of the best shots Ihave seen of myself. It is really true. I had a great time. and I felt so secure.

Johnny Young
Location:CA. USA

When I first walked in to Alans office I was a bit nervous because I had pretty bad experiences with photographers in the past and didnt know what to expect. As soon as I entered I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who showed me Alans work and talked me over how Alan approached each person when he shot. Shortly then after Alan walked in and greeted me with a smile and broke quickly broke the ice with a few jokes which then made me much more comfortable. We then got started right away. The great thing about the shoot was that he actually shot a test shot so that he could not only test the lighting but show you what to expect from his shoot. So when we got into the actually shooting I chose a CD out his collection that I liked and we started. It was like sitting at cafe talking to an old friend, we just talked and talked and during the conversations he would shoot, make you laugh shoot and etc. He likes to make you feel real comfortable so that he can capture that real natural look about each individual. In the past some photographers acutally told me to smile certain ways and do things that really felt unnatural, but with Alan it was a completely different experience. Thanks again Alan Johnny Young

Alan, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you, thank you, thank you so much!!!! for my amazing headshots. I can honestly say that i have never had such a great experience working with a photographer… and have never been so happy with the photographs. Usually there are one or two pictures that I like when i get the proofs back… but when i got the proofs of the pictures that you took, i couldn’t find a bad one. From the very beginning when we were picking out wardrobe I had a good feeling because you helped me pick the right outfits but at the same time helped me find what i liked best as opposed to just telling me what to wear… you could tell that i wasn’t happy with certain shirts… and even if you liked them you told me not to wear them because if i didn’t feel great in the shirt… it would come across in the photos! I know nothing about lighting…. but all i know is you sure brought out the RED in my hair which makes everyone happy! I am so excited to go out on castings and auditions with these new pictures, because i feel that they really capture me. You, Caroline, and the lovely Lafit made the whole shoot such a happy one….

hey Alan You were great at putting me in a relaxed state of mind and letting me be me. Coming from a model background, it was always hard for me to do headshots where true emmotion could come across. With Alan, I finally have pictures that look like me, that are me – he made me realise we spend so much time trying to be someone else when it is so much easier and effortless being yourself! Thanks Noush

I’ve been a working actor in theatre, feature films and TV since age 12 and I’m in my 48th year as a working actor. The point is: I must have been through at least as many photographers as I have years and I have not had as pleasant an experience as I had being photographed by Alan Weissman! ( I regard having photos taken akin to having teeth pulled. ) It was really fun and I didn’t want to leave! But it’s results that count! I was 100% pleased with the outcome. We did a wide variety of shots and the transition of one to another was painless. I was able to instantly see the results which helped to inspire both of us for new ideas. Alan does so much with lighting, he created the moods we wanted to portray and I had to do virtually nothing. It’s no wonder he has photographed so many celebrities.

Tony Voci

Here’s the deal. I’ve shot twice with Alan. The first time in May 2001 and again in December 2006. Film the first time and digital the second. Both shoots yielded spectacular results – and I was highly skeptical about the digital shoot beause I loathe digital photographs. Let’s face it. Every wannabe photographer in Hollywood has a digital camera.

Alan is a professional. He lights the subject. He tests the subject and the lighting before the shoot starts. Even as a layman I know it’s more important to light the subject and test the subject more than the camera or medium being used. That’s where you get your moneys worth with Alan. He takes the time to test the shoot with either a professional film polaroid camera or in the digital shoot, he projects the digital results onto his monitor. Here is what’s important to the paying customer regarding the test shots. You see the results of the test right before your eyes which allays fear and anxiety. Fear and anxiety can be deadly to anyones confidence in a fairly expensive photo shoot. I’m not a celebrity so shooting with Alan was not cheap for me, but in weighing the less expensive “cost” to shoot with an amateur photographer would cost me thousands of dollars in “opportunity lost” when my mediocre headshot goes across the casting directors desk right into the trashcan. Don’t waste your time. Spend the money. Be ready. Be professional. Work through the process with Alan. You couldn’t be in better hands. Sincerely, Tony Voci

Stephan Katz
Location:WLA, CAlifornia USA

Dear Allan, I can’t tell you how happy I am that I chose you to shoot my first headshots. When I was “shopping” for photographers many people told me of you, “he’s too expensive”, and “He only shoots celebrities, so wait until you have more experience in front of the camera”. Before I even stepped foot in your studio, I called your studio to inquire about shooting with you and was given honest advice and personal attention. I knew Immediately after speaking with your assistant that this is the place I want to work with and have a relationship with. I came into the shoot feeling very nervous, and not knowing what to expect. Once, we started I felt very calm, and had a great time totally leaving my nervousness at home. All throughout the shoot I felt very comfortable and not nervous in the least. Your work speaks for itself. You have an amazing talent, but more importantly your a GOOD HONEST person. You spent so much time with me going over my pictures, and giving me personal attention, that I couldn’t ask for a better “First Photo shoot” experience. Thank you so much for your honesty and humbleness. Sincerely, Stephen Katz PS. Every time I call to set up an appointment with you and speak with Caroline, she is so pleasant and sweet! A real positive asset to your studio!!
