It’s such a pleasure to sit for you- and I usually hate getting pictures done.
You are the greatest.
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 realize we spend so much time trying to be someone else when it is so much easier and effortless being yourself!
I 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.
Alan 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.
ALAN 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.
Alan 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).
Alan 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!
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!
