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!
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…
Do you like bacon… lots and lots and lots of bacon? Well, the guys of Epic Meal Time sure know how to cook up a storm in the kitchen, especially when it comes to bacon! Check out this behind the scenes video of their calendar photo session with Alan. If you’re hungry… beware!
I 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
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 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.
