Alan Weissman is so fantastically, freakishly gifted at his craft and he uses that to capture the best of people. As his client, we’re fortunate enough that we get to put out the highest quality of photo on the market for others to see. Hands down, the best we’ve worked with! He gave us a stellar photos…I’m talking unbelievably high quality.

Do yourself a favor, book Alan. He may be a “Celebrity Photographer” and he definitely has the experience and the cred to back that up but he loves working with the everyday working man/woman/child/pet too…and you’ll never regret it! He’s really, truly that great and a bag of cookies.

Alan is so much fun to work with, he’s very warm and open. He was prepared when I arrived, so he was focused on getting to know me and getting the best expressions during the shoot. I’m very happy with my photos – the turnaround was quick and everything went smoothly. And he now knows all the verses to “Chantilly Lace”!

Alan is truly an artist. It was a mind-blowing experience! He is so friendly and professional!

He will take the best out of you to enhance it in a way you have never seen before! He masters lighting and is insistent on trying to capture the best shots to make sure the both of you will love the result. If not he will die trying and take more time to craft his arts…That is true professionalism.

The time I spent with Alan and Natalie was so great. Alan made me feel comfortable enough to snatch the real nature out of me. Your pictures need to be just like you and the end result was much more than I was expected… I never felt so relaxed with an unknown photographer before shooting with Alan and I wish to thank the both of you for the amazing job you have done. My headshots speak the truth for themselves.

Alan is just brilliant, complete, genuine…

Anastasiia-Kyryliuk-5438I absolutely loved working with Alan! He knows exactly what to say and what to do to get that perfect shot. And he is an absolutely loveable, fun, warm, interesting person and such a delight to work with. I’m a model so I had lots of photo shoots and worked with many photographers. But Alan now has occupied the one of the top positions in my “The photographers I would love to work again and again” list. It is so important for a photographer to know how to shoot this or that person. Alan is the one who can figure that out in a second. And if you are a tough case or if that’s your first time in front of the camera, Alan will make you feel relaxed, confident and will take the best picture of you ever! So if you are looking for a bad, clumsy and moody photographer this is definitely not the case. But if you want to get an amazing photo of you that shows you from your best side, Alan is your guy! Thanks a lot! I had a wonderful time!

Love, Anastasiia Kyryliuk

headshots, kids, portraits children, kids headshotsI had heard that Alan was the “Master of Lighting”; the photos on his website proved it.  I’ve had some unsatisfactory headshot experiences, so I wasn’t looking forward to making an appointment.  But when I called Alan, he immediately made me feel at ease – he’s got a great sense of humor.  He’s passionate about his work & even over the phone you feel confidant that this person is going to work hard to give you images that you want, & THAT is something that I didn’t get from anybody else.

The real kicker is when you meet with Alan & he starts setting things up for you.  He has a gift for making an uncomfortable, artificial process become organic – I actually enjoyed my photo session.

I will definitely go back to Alan Weissman in the future & highly recommend his services.

_73A7849TeremyJacksonAlan is literally THE BEST photographer I’ve ever worked with. Sure he’s accustomed to celebrity photography, but he treats all of his clients as if they are the most important thing to him and his pictures reflect that. I have booked numerous jobs when I first started out with only 2 of the shots that we took, and he gave me loads to choose from and helped me to pick my best look. I’ve tried others just to test the waters, but I’ve regretted it since. Alan Weissman is the best and there simply is no substitute for great quality, hard work, dedication, and a passion unlike any I have seen before. Thanks Alan! You do phenomenal work and everyone should know. I look forward to booking with you again in the near future!

Alan was awesome! Did a fantastic job, never once did I feel tense or under pressure. I felt as if we had been friends for along time. Laughing and joking around. Talking to me about who I am. Actually trying to get to know me. Who cares about me? Normally it’s just about businesses get the best shot and move on your just a number. Not with Alan. He has a high passion and love for what he does. I couldn’t have wished for a better experience. Words don’t express the quality of his work. He captures the real you, from the inside. He is hands down one of the best in the industry. You can’t find too many people that have pride for what they do anymore. His staff as well are great. Very knowledgeable and helpful in every way. Thanks again for the great experience!! I highly recommend Alan Weissman.

headshots, kids, portraits childrenALAN WEISSMAN is THE BEST headshot photographer in the business. There were so many great shots, it was hard to narrow them down. For me, doing pix was like going to the dentist, but Alan made it so easy. He is professional, likable, fun, funny, has great prices, and works with a wonderful makeup artist. I promise you will love him & his terrific, incredibly helpful associate, Shoushan. FIVE out of FIVE STARS.

_MG_5189_REt_090611 copyAlan is not only a great photographer but a great person to work with. My daughter is 15 and really loved getting photographed by him. He has a way of bringing out your personality which is so important in a  headshot. He made her feel very comfortable, even putting on her favorite music. He took the time to make sure we got what we wanted. He really enjoys his profession and you can see it on the quality of his work. His prices are very reasonable for anyone just starting out.

AlanWeissmanAlan is an amazing photographer who crafts you to perfection with light! I’ve seen the works of many around the world, yet no one beats the way Alan creates headshots. Have a look at his website and compare them to others, and you will see what I mean! Also, when Alan is shooting for you, he is patient and takes the necessary time (however long it may take) to capture your personality, your essence in the photograph. He takes no short cuts… he even experiments with new ideas if he suddenly thinks that might bring out a new, interesting side to you. A funny, intelligent person to work with, you will enjoy a day of taking your headshots, and will love the results Alan has created for you at the end of the day.

Lastly and maybe most importantly, you can suggest what you like, but also let Alan have room to create an individual style for you! He is very knowledgeable when it comes to what works for an actor’s headshot. I also recommend using the makeup artist from Alan’s studio as they gave me a peace of mind by staying there for the whole shoot (tidying my hair, makeup and outfit when they shift during the shoot).

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL – Marina Anderson

Marina Anderson Alan WeissmanAlan has been my main photographer for over 20 years. He’s photographed some of the most notable people in the entertainment industry including my ex-husband David Carradine.  Alan also took my portrait for my book.  He has ALWAYS – from day one – been upfront about fees, proceedure and has conducted himself with honesty and integrity.  He is an absolute sweetheart of a person and will go to great lengths to explain things. In all the referrals and recommendations I’ve made regarding Alan to actors, musicians, or even non-industry people who wanted just a great pic with their pet, I have not heard of one complaint…Not one. Just praise and happiness about the results. He is a professional through and through and among the creme de la creme of photographers as well as a person.  I can’t praise him enough.

Alan is one of the most professional photographers I have personally worked with, he’s fun & enthusiastic. His aura makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera so there’s no awkwardness in which ever pose you may be in. In East London cockney slang my final pictures well & truly made me look like a “sort” (beautiful). I couldn’t of worked with someone better, an absolute pleasure and great gentleman! Highly recommended!

headshots, kids, portraits childrenSo much fun! Not at all what I expected! This was my first headshot session and the minute I arrived, Alan greeted me with his two dogs and then we sat down and talked and laughed like old friends. When the shoot began Alan made me so comfortable with humor and kind professional direction, I knew my photos would turn out great. And in the end they exceeded my expectations. Working with Alan as a young actress was like being in my own living room, time flew by and I didn’t want it to end.

Thank you Alan, your wonderful make-up artist Emma and assistant Shoushan for making my experience one to remember and for the fabulous photos.

You Rock,

headshots, kids, portraits children I was careful to make sure I was picking the best photographer in Los Angeles, CA. I took my time to read reviews and look at photographs prior to making my decision. I made the best decision to use Alan to take my pictures for my real estate business. He is a perfectionist and loves what he does. Alan creates beauty in everything he does.

I recently haMavil Gonzalezd the pleasure of working with the prestigious Alan Weismann, at the urgingMavil Gonzalez copy of my agent, for new headshots. Naturally, I was a little nervous, but that quickly faded! Not only was the ambience cozy and inviting, but Alan, himself, was so charismatic and funny that I quickly felt at home! When we started shooting, Alan asked me about myself, my hobbies, and really took great interest in getting to know ME. Not only was this shocking in itself, considering his very impressive clientele, but before I knew it we were done shooting. Turns out his philosophy, in taking a great headshot, is capturing the real you, raw and completely natural. And let me tell you something, the moments Alan caught on camera were absolutely breathtaking images, making the headshots incomparable in nature to any other photographer. I highly recommend Alan to anyone and absolutely everyone who needs a great headshot, portrait, or just a plain old excuse to have great photographs taken, GO SEE ALAN!

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!
