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!
So 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.
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 had the pleasure of working with the prestigious Alan Weismann, at the urging 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!
Thank you so much for giving me the gift of great headshots. You are a genius in your field and deserve all the success and recognition a person could want. The way you work is truly unique and I am so glad I was able to meet you and work with you.
I wish you all the best and hope to see you soon again,
It’s hard to describe the experience of working with Alan, because I can assure you it will surpass your experience with any photographer in Hollywood. Whether you are a veteran in the entertainment industry, or if you are just arriving in Hollywood Alan is the guy for you. His 20+ years in the industry speak for itself, and his successful cliental throughout his career demonstrate he is among the elite in Hollywood. While working inside his breathtaking studio Alan is a complete perfectionist about his craft, and he delivers the same amount of professionalism, dedication, and effort with every client. Alan is known for demonstrating exceptional lighting in his photographs, and he truly understands how to bring out the full potential in each of his clients. With the support of a high-quality staff you will receive valuable insight that will help bring your career to a new level. I would recommend Alan to everyone in Hollywood. If you want to bring out the best in your career and in yourself, I would think you would want to work with the best person to help you do that.
“Alan was wonderful to work with during my photograph session and the results were just what I had hoped for! The photos he took will grace my personal website and blog, as well as be used for numerous promotional purposes regarding my leadership of our 31 year old national organization.”

Can’t wait to face the challenge of choosing which shots to put out there from today’s shoot. It was clear from the very first test click that Alan has earned his reputation as an experienced, gifted photographer. I would also highly recommend Rita, a makeup artist with whom Alan has worked for a long time. Both professionals have worked extensively with some of Hollywood’s most prominent stars. There’s a reason for that — they’re that good. But the prices are VERY reasonable. Although I had heard nothing but good things from friends who have shot with Alan, I was pleasantly surprised, anyway. I found my photographer. And I’m not letting him go!

I had the pleasure of working with the great Alan Weissman and his lovely assistant Madeline. Madeline helped make all the arrangements to accommodate my schedule and is quite possibly one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. When I arrived I was greeted by a magnificent home tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles. Alan’s use of his studio and home space for pictures is nothing short of brilliant. He created a relaxing environment that was easy to work in. His eye for detail and creating a natural look surpassed my expectations. I will definitely be returning anytime I need any photos of any kind taken. Do yourself a favor, get your picture taken here.
