This is my second time working with these guys to get my headshots done. This time round, it was really important to me to showcase my brand and that I am approachable with the start of my new company Level Update. As always, Carlos and his team knocked it out of the park. More...

Hi Highly recommend Art of Headshots! I found Carlos to be both personable and very professional. He has the wonderful ability to be relaxed, comfortable and was able to draw out of me a variety of expressions - good for my acting portfolio! I am over the moon with the results. When I left the studio I knew magic had happened. Thank you Carlos and Becky. More...

This was the first time using a professional to get a headshot rather than a selfie or using a friend. What a difference! Carlos works with you to try and discover that one moment in time that can stand still and represent you to your audience. During a conversation with Carlos there is some back and forth and then click-click-click-click he has caught something attention-grabbing. It was a lot more relaxing, interesting, and fun than I thought it would be. Highly recommended - you'll be amazed at what the difference that a highly skilled professional can do with a camera. Besides - you deserve a professionally done headshot at this stage in your career. More...

I have never felt so comfortable during a photo shoot. They can be awkward sometimes, but with Carlos, you will never realize you are getting your pictures taken. That's how wonderful and professional he is.I will definitely be coming back for more and I would recommend him without thinking about it twice! He is the best photographer ever!! Go Carlos More...

Our son does acting and needs to get headshots made from time to time. We found The Art of Headshots online. The web-site seemed to be well setup and easy to navigate. We found the right package and scheduled a convenient appointment. The pricing was very competitive. It wasn’t until we attended the appointment that we realized the real value. The photographer was very experienced. He guided our son to show various expressions and captured some really amazing photographs. Everything about this company, from the intuitive website to the friendly editor and administrator, to the superior quality of the edited headshots has been exceptional. We will be coming back from now on.Chuck V. More...

I have experienced several head shot photographers over the years, including ones double the cost and Carlos and Becky delivered the best experience to date. With inside/outside options or both, I opted for in studio photos and the location was bright and perfect. Carlos technique is relaxing and comfortable and he finds a way to bring out a genuine smile in you. I would, and will highly recommend Carlos and will continue to use him in the future. I emptied their business card holder just so I can pass them along to colleagues. More...

I cant say enough positives about my experience with Art of headshots. Very professional and caring approach. I had my headshots done outside in a location of my choice. Carlos is a super talented photographer, great listener, very understanding of your needs, created a great experience and he really has great way of getting you into the right frame of mind for your shots. The shots came out great and the edits too. I would use their services again without hesitation. Thanks to all the team. More...

I was blown away by the experience Carlos creates for his subjects; I've worked with photographers before, but never thought I would have the pleasure of working with a photographer so skilled in the art of energy work - he uses his skill to capture the energy you want in a way that beams through your headshots.. wouldn't have thought it was out there until I experienced myself, but of course it's exactly what you want for headshots! Can't recommend highly enough. More...

Art of Headshots is the most superb headshot studio I could have possibly imagined. Carlos is so much more than just a professional but he is a true master of his craft. He managed to get amazing photos that only someone with experience, and natural talent can take. I cannot describe how impressed I was with this studio and Carlos. Thank you so much. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for professionally done headshots to go to Art of Headshots. More...

Very professional and smooth experience all the way through with Carlos. He far exceeds expectations and ensures his clients are always happy. He has been a pleasure to deal with and being able to connect with the photographer is just as important as the quality of pictures they take and with Carlos he has the skill to do both very well. I’ve worked with him for my individual headshots and also he shot our entire office as well. The finished product was excellent and this will help all of us in our line of work. I would not hestitate to recommend Carlos for any type of portrait photography!! More...

Wow, what an incredible experience working with Carlos! I was just hoping for a couple simple snaps and touch-ups and nice looking headshots; I got so much better than that! Carlos is an extremely skilled facilitator and was able to so gracefully put both myself and my partner into states that captured our essence & our core intentions so intensely and that energy comes through strong, loud, and clear in the photos... a picture may be worth a thousand words, but if you want those words to be worth anything, make sure you have someone like Carlos behind the camera!

If you're in need of headshots for business, I guarantee you won't find a photographer more skilled at capturing your essence and having in shine through your photos... truly a wonderful experience working with him. I'm not camera shy or anything myself, but I have no doubt that wouldn't even be an issue with this artist; like I said, can't recommend highly enough! More...

The reason why I chose Art of Headshots was more than evident the day of the shoot:Carlos is genuine and professional and as a result his work is authentic; I wanted a photographer who could accurately capture someone's essence. Carlos talks to you, asks questions, and inquires about your goals so that he can give you the best photos possible. Becky was very helpful, and I appreciated her speed with extra edit requests. Thank you both so much!I sincerely recommend Art of Headshots; I left the studio feeling inspired and am delighted with the photos. More...

I don't normally write reviews, however felt my experience with the art of headshots was so fantastic I couldn't not share it. I had zero insight into headshot photography, and so when I was informed I needed to have a headshot for an application, I didn't have a clue where to even start looking. Luckily my hairdresser recommended the art of headshots to me, and told me I wouldn't be disappointed. What an understatement! Anyone who comes across this review- if you want a headshot done for whatever reason, this is where it's at. And trust me on this.Carlos uses a technique I have never come across in photography before, and explores areas/interests within your life that truly do come out in the images he captures during the photography session. This session is not your typical stand in front of a camera, smile, pose, okay we are done. It is an experience and it amazed me how my photos truly altered from the first initial shots to the finals photos taken towards the end of the session. When Carlos told me first hand he guarantees his work, and would redo the session if I was not happy with the outcome I couldn't believe it. However after receiving the images - it all made sense. I was so surprised/excited/and truly thrilled with the outcome.Becky- who is the photography editor is absolutely superb! She sends you the album of photos, and goes through with you which photos you want editing and any specifications regarding the editing. I had a very specific criteria and she was phenomenal in making everything come together and the turn around time on the photos was incredibly quick with such an amazing result.I cannot recommend the art of headshots enough.

I am glad that my first professional photograph was taken by Carlos. I never liked my photos being taken by but Carlos made the whole experience relaxing, personal, and fun. As a former counselor, he has a unique ability to bring out the best side of you by getting to know you and engaging you throughout the process. He is also very patient and took extra time with me to experiment different shots until I was completely satisfied. Carlos is more than a photographer, he is a director that brings out the movie star in you! More...

I needed to update my headshots for a theatre production and carefully did my research before choosing a photographer. Carlos had great reviews and I can see why. His number one priority is to make the client truly happy with the finished product. Half-way during the session, he shows you the photos so far - to ensure you're both on the same page. He's got wonderful ideas regarding poses, but is also open to the client's input. He's warm, personable...and has a fun and friendly way of conversing with you while snapping to draw out your authentic self. I had been sick with bronchitis prior to my shoot. Upon viewing the photos, I could see I wasn't completely healthy. Carlos was so generous and open to re-shooting the entire session a few weeks later (no extra charge) when I was completely healthy. Thanks Carlos! More...

The name does really reflect the process. An artful approach to capturing both your image and your energy in a unique, relaxed way.

And I had trouble choosing from among several great shots - nice problem! More...

Carlos is a fantastic photographer. He is easy to converse with and will make you feel comfortable being photographed even if you are uneasy about it.

I had to update my professional headshot and was very nervous because of previous bad experiences. I am someone very difficult to photograph, I always close my eyes and am camera shy. In the past, photographers would get upset with me! When I voiced this concerned to Carlos he reassured me that he would never get upset, and it's true he was so patient. This experience was very pleasant and very different. Carlos takes the time to get to know you and you end up forgetting that you're actually taking photos. Halfway through the appointment, he checks with you if you like what's been done so far and will adjust accordingly. I felt really comfortable and I even had fun! Highly recommend Art of Headshots.

I am a single Mom, to my 14 year old son. I was hesitant to get professional photos done because I am on a budget and I wanted to ensure they would be amazing. I did some research on Google and decided to give Carlos a call. During our conversion I asked, why I should choose him over another photographer. He took the time to explain his services and experience to me and told me that he would not be happy, until I was happy, even if I needed to do a re-shoot. He made me feel confident in him and continued to answer all my questions/concerns.During the photo shoot, he asked my son what his hobbies/passions were - he developed a conversation to connect with my son and made him feel comfortable. When the shoot was done, I felt like Carlos actually got to know us as people, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is hesitant. The photos turned out amazing and Carlos kept true to his word - and even delivered much more than he initially promised. He definitely goes above and beyond and I would guarantee that - on his behalf..... More...

I, like many, don't really enjoy being in front of a camera, but I needed to get some professional photos taken for my website.

I had an enjoyable experience with Carlos getting a headshot done recently. He was relaxed and professional and used natural conversations to get me to open up so that more genuine looking photos were taken and provided.

To say I was nervous getting my headshots done is an understatement. I'm self conscience about my smile. Carlos has a talent that cannot be taught, and a method that really works. He was so good at getting to "my story" that there were many times I forgot I was being photographed. Those were the genuine moments and that was what he was so good at capturing on film. Money very well spent! More...

Carlos is a really fantastic photographer. Carlos' strength is his personality. He is a great conversationalist and knows how to get people talking.

Art of Headshots was the best choice I made to get my professional headshots done. It was a pleasure working with Carlos, He's professional and a genius. Half of the time I was laughing so hard and he perfectly captured all my silly laughs. When I first walked in for this photoshoot, Carlos initiated a fun conversation about life, in those few minutes he understood what I wanted. Sure enough, I liked almost every picture of mine. In the end I couldn't decide which one to pick. Working with Carlos and the Art of Headshots was a phenomenal experience, one that I'll never forget. Thank you, Carlos. More...

Carlos is an incredibly talented photographer with a genuine passion for capturing your energy. I needed an updated photo for my LinkedIn profile. I was nervous to take professional photos but was pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. Prior to starting, he took the time to get to know me better and understand my goals. The photos came out very natural. A benefit of choosing The Art of Headshots is that your photos are fully guaranteed to your satisfaction. I was confident we would get the right shot in the first session. For a headshot that reflects your personality and professionalism, I would highly recommend Carlos. More...

My experience working with Art of Headshots was pleasant, efficient and professional from start to finish. Becky answered all my questions, gave recommendations for clothing and makeup, and set up the appointment within a couple of hours of my initial inquiry - very responsive! The shoot itself was different than my previous corporate headshot sessions, in the best possible way. Carlos took the time to connect with me through conversation, asking questions about myself and what I'm interested in doing with my career. He explained how he would do the photo shoot before starting, so I knew what to expect. There was no 'posing' - he gave only very minimal direction, mostly just asked questions, listened, responded with thoughtful comments, and occasionally asked me to pause so he could shoot a few pictures. The hour sped by, and felt like I had spent an hour talking with a friend.The process from photo shoot to receiving my final touched-up photos took 6 days, and was again very professionally handled by Becky. It was easy to review my gallery online and submit my choice for retouching. I am very happy with the final product, and am excited to use it to enhance my online profiles.Thanks, Carlos and Becky! I will certainly use you again when I need my headshots refreshed. More...

Kaycee Lashman -- I am not photogenic; in fact, I often don’t recognize myself in photos. So I dislike having my picture taken. But I needed one decent photograph that I could use for everything. My sister recently had her pictures taken by Carlos for her website. And she loved them, and I loved them because they looked like her – I mean, really looked like her. While Carlos was taking my pictures, he was getting to know me. Seriously, he asked me probing questions about my life. And at times he would ask me to close my eyes, think about what I had just said, and open my eyes; then he would take pictures. My photo session with Carlos resulted in pictures that reflect my true self. I recognize myself in those photos. I love that. More...

I definitely recommend anyone who hasn't gotten their headshots done to go to Art of Headshots! I know some people might worried about not feeling comfortable in front of the camera. However, Art of Headshots is totally different. Carlos is excellent and professional. He'll talk to you and make you feel like you're just talking to an old friend while he captures your best smile and emotion. The studio environment is comfortable and I actually had fun! The picture doesn't feel like you are smiling on purpose for the photo. It feels very natural. I was in a need to update all my social media account profile pics and I am glad I picked Carlos. Thank you Carlos and Becky for providing me with such great results! More...

During a recent job search, I found myself invited to meet with the president of a global firm as a "final interview step". With only a week before my meeting, I knew I needed to upgrade my rather casual LinkedIn photo with a more professional head shot as he was sure to check out my profile prior to our meeting. Carlos was able to save the day by fitting me in with very little notice and his work certainly got attention. As I just started work this week I received a welcoming email from my new boss and at the end he closed with "PS. Nice pic!" Looking to stand out from the crowd? Art of Headshots certainly makes an impression.Thanks Becky and Carlos! More...

I needed some new headshots as I am about to re-start my acting career after several years on hiatus. I chose Art Of Headshots based on the sample shots photographer Carlos had posted on their Yelp site. I called the office and had a very in-depth conversation with Carlos which cemented the idea that I had found someone who's skill and experience would help me capture the look and essence I wanted in my new shots. I arranged an appointment and was totally satisfied! Carlos is easy to work with. He takes the time to get to know his subject and what they are looking for. He has great ideas and excellent vision. I never felt I was being forced into what he wanted but rather we discovered the result together. We looked at photos on his iPad as we worked and adjusted, resulting in many great options to choose from. Their online interface of the proofs is easy to use and convenient when submitting proofs for finishing. Their prices are fair and they offer great discounts on multiple edits. Becky in the office is friendly and will work with you on figuring out the editing process. If you need a headshot for any reason be it for entertainment, corporate or just because you are kind of a big deal, I HIGHLY recommend AOH! They are now my go-to, and I commuted up from Arizona to work with them. No-one down here even comes close! More...

I found "Art of Headshots" while looking for a Vancouver-based photography studio to take a professional headshot for my LinkedIn profile. After interviewing a few different places I decided to go with Carlos, largely because of his overwhelmingly positive Yelp reviews. Trust me, the reviews ring true.Carlos can be best described as a "true artist" rather than a mere business proprietor. While his studio is profitable, he prioritizes the production of outstanding client outcomes ahead of fiscal gain. I headed into the shoot with very high expectations, and Carlos met or exceeded all of them. While the "executive" package I purchased produces five distinct shots, which are delivered ~3 business days after the shoot, I was blown away to receive the lead shot for LinkedIn (expedited at no extra cost) less than two hours after my shoot. Have already noticed a significant increase in LinkedIn page views after uploading the new photo.Carlos delivers great photo outcomes, but I was most intrigued by how he does so. He spent over two hours with me, engaging in a style of photography that is powered by what can best be described as an "emotional matrix". He had me talking about various emotionally moving parts of my life, and it was at certain emotional high points of conversation that he seemed to capture the best photos. He also plays a rather inspiring music track while shooting (think I heard some Frank Sinatra?), which made the experience even more fun.Art of Headshots delivers exceptionally high calibre photographic outcomes at a reasonable price. I unreservedly recommend them. More...

Becky in the office is friendly and will work with you on figuring out the editing process. If you need a headshot for any reason be it for entertainment, corporate or just because you are kind of a big deal, I HIGHLY recommend AOHS! They are now my go-to, and I commuted up from Arizona to work with them. No-one down here even comes close! More...

I would recommend Carlos to anyone looking to have professional headshots for any reason. Carlos is very personable and knows how to inspire the natural expressions required for a great personal photo. Carlos is also true to his guarantee; just before my first shoot with him I had an unfortunate experience at the hairdresser. Despite the fact that some of the proofs were gorgeous, I felt like I needed a reshoot because the hair in the first set of pictures just didn't look like 'me.' Carlos was very cooperative in setting up another shoot and the second set of proofs came out just as great (if not better) than the first! Thanks Carlos for your help! More...

Carlos has the ability to move beyond a classy portrait and create an image that shows who you are. No gimmicks or lighting tricks. He helps you open up and be yourself whether you are in his studio or outside on an organic shoot. The highest compliments came from my family and friends who said my headshot really brought out my best characteristics Highly recommended. More...

I had never had a professional photo shoot before, so I was a little nervous about it.  However, Carlos made me feel relaxed right away. The conversation was so good that I almost forgot that he was taking the pictures. Overall, it was a very nice experience and I can't wait to see the final results (which, I am sure, are going to be great because he took the time to connect with me and to listen what I like and who I am, and the pictures will reflect that).  The evident passion that he feels for what he does makes him not just an amazing photographer, but also a great person to work with.

I recently had my headshot done by Carlos and today I saw the results. I love my photos! I'm eager to get my new headshot onto my website. When I went to for my session at the Art of Headshots studio, I loved the experience. Carlos sat me down, made me a coffee, and started with a chat about what was important to me. He had a way of not only drawing out the me I was excited about, he got straight to my essence, so that soon I was bubbling about my passions and life adventures. The session was one of my most fun times in front of a camera. This morning I got to see the me that Carlos captured and I'm so pleased with the results. People say I 'shine'. During the session with Carlos, I felt like I was shining, and when I see the picture, that's the me that Carlos so beautifully captured. If you want a portrait that shows your essence, that brings out the inner you, Carlos is the photographer I recommend. More...

My name is Elizabeth and I am a extremely satisfied client of Carlos Taylhardat and Art of Headshots. Initially I had a headshot done by another professional and was not satisfied, Carlos explained his process for capturing a modern portrait. He excelled in every aspect;
a) During the shoot he made me feel relaxed. I left his session feeling amazing.
b) I was produced with a gallery to select my images and had full access to download.
c) His photoshop skills matched his ability to bring out the best of those being photographed. I was given files optimized for printing and web.
d) I referred him to the rest of my office and he offered a great value and all of my colleagues were equally appreciative of his talents.

Without hesitation feel free to contact me if you have any questions about his work.

I have always been the family photographer so I was reluctant to be a “model”. Carlos put me at ease, made me forget that he was taking my picture, and I just enjoyed our conversation about my dreams being realized. He had a gift for making me move in the moment with grace and simplicity. I love the headshot and would highly recommend Carlos to anyone who was looking for a headshot that showed the essence of themselves. More...

Carlos rocks.  He is patient, personable and gets you in the right mood, at the right time to take the right photograph.  He previously shot some great portraits for the Royal Westminster Regiment soldiers and I hired him a couple of weeks ago for business photographs.  Very impressive work.  Well worth the time and money when you are thinking about making a good, lasting impression.  I highly recommend the Art of Headshots.

I can't say enough about Carlos's approach when it comes to capturing the ideal head shot. His expertise behind the camera is great, but what really sets Carlos apart is his connection with people and how he quickly gets to know how to evoke an array of expressions from his clients. This lets him get to the heart of producing an excellent head shot in a way that's efficient, thoughtful and actually quite meaningful. More...

Carlos did a great job on my photos, they're impressive! People really took notice of me online once I updated my profiles with them. Not only that, he made sure to capture my essence by asking me open questions and inviting me to talk about what really turns my crank: I told him a story about the first time I climbed a mountain... without a rope. Thank you Carlos! More...

According to the feedback I've received since posting my new head shot, I've recently become more distinguished and better looking. It's because Carlos is a genius at his craft.

the event that occurred when Carlos started the process of shooting me was amazing. the techniques that he uses is pretty creative. i love his original approach and the way that he makes you feel completely natural. The results show absolutely how that moment is captured in a fleeting way. the spontaneous energy that he exhibits is worldly. By putting you at ease, Carlos creates a context of true portrait. The quality of the images communicate the character and personality of the subject. He was able to bring out the inner nature of who i am. The fluid interpretation of what i am about and confidence of using the shots for future projects and clients. Thanks again Carlos for a job well done.Varouj Gumuchian, architect More...

Carlos is a master at what he does best....capture the essence of his clients in a time capsule photo for business or personal use. He made the session fly by painlessly as I don't like my picture taken...and produced such a range of photo's that my son and wife picked out nine #1's in only 20 head shots. He helped me see the true value of creating a memorable photograph. Years ago he would have been great for Life Magazine! I recommend him without hesitation. DA of DA Top Talent More...
