“Rafael, is by far, the best professional headshot photographer I’ve ever worked with. He was not only so professional, but also so kind and fun to work with. He made me feel very comfortable, and his studio had everything you could want or need – all kinds of backgrounds, lights, etc… The headshots I got, not only hit all the requirements for acting headshots, but also stand out in the best ways possible.”
– Sarah Grace Lee

“I recently had a photo session with Rafael to get professional head-shots done; and my experience was fantastic! This was my first experience taking head-shot photos, so wasn’t sure what to expect, but Rafael made me feel relaxed and comfortable with the whole process.”
– Jose Garcia

“Rafael, the photographer, was extremely kind and listened to all my suggestions and added some of his own as well! Great experience! Will definitely be back to this studio if I needed more headshots, plus the price is very reasonable compared to all the other studios in the area. 10/10 would recommend!”
– Yaser Nyrabeah

“Had a great shoot with Rafael! It’s tough to find a photographer who has really good equipment, knows how to use it, and has a good vibe to work with AND knows how to properly retouch a headshot. He’s got it all! I’m very pleased with the results and so is my manager! And he’s affordable and you can shoot as many looks as you want in the session you book!”
