I didn't expect for the studio to be as professional as it was! Super excited I came across this studio. Found out about this studio through my acting classes. Very reasonably priced considering how professional the set up was. There's a changing room and vanity area to touch up. Rafael knows how to take great headshots. It was super easy to pick the final look. He also offers a same day service where you can pick the final headshot with him, he can do the touch up right there and then, and print them out with your name on it! It is soo hard coming across a headshot photographer that is reasonably priced and offers great service! Will definitely come back for future sessions. More...

My partners and I were looking looking to get our corporate headshots done and found The Light Comittee through yelp. Rafael is an amazing photographer who is not only patient, but also very attentive to details. This is the first time I've gotten my headshots done for work, so I wasn't quite sure how to position myself. Rafael immediately made me feel at ease by letting me know that he would work with me on lighting and on what angles will best represent me. He also noticed the wrinkles on my partner's shirt and offered a steamer to help him straighten them out. Rafael has a deep understanding of visual identity and made sure to select backdrops and lighting that were cohesive with our brand. It was a fantastic experience working with him, I'm definitely coming back again to get theatrical shots done! More...

Professional, Kind, Exceeded Expectations - I hardly ever post any reviews, but I would truly give higher than 5 stars if I could. I am incredibly impressed by Rafael and amazed by how positive this experience was. We reached out for corporate photos only for our new employees, and the photos are so beautiful that we may now re-do everyone else's photos using The Light Committee! Thank you for making the process so seamless and pleasant, and for knocking it out of the park. I HIGHLY recommend this photographer. Will definitely be using again! More...

Rafael is amazing!!!! So affordable and probably the best headshots I’ve ever taken! He made the experience super comfortable (offered snacks, drinks, a fan, separate dressing room, a makeup mirror). He helped me pick out outfits and my photos later on! He knows his stuff too! Commercial versus theatrical lighting, how to light headshots with glasses. You can take photos all in studio or outside, or both like I did. I am incredibly happy with the over three hundred photos taken at my three look session! Do yourself a favor and book this artist!!!!

I had my actor headshot from this place, it was a great experience, nice studio. Most important thing is he really do understand beauty of lighting, I am a filmmaker and actress, lighting is major key for any type of the shooting. He knows what he is doing. Love it! More...

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.  Got some great advice from him on everything from wardrobe to the best poses to get that business-professional look I was going for.  The pictures came out great; I'd highly recommend Headshots by The Light Committee!

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! More...

If you want to work with a photographer who's professional, patient, knowledgeable and is willing to go the extra mile for you to get the best results then you don't need to look for anyone else, but Rafael.

Rafael is a phenomenal photographer!!! I came in to get lifestyle photos and it exceeded my expectations! The whole experience was AMAZING! The studio is so spacious, beautiful with all the necessary equipment, make up area and changing room for your convenience. Rafael is a sweetheart, so nice and accommodating. It's so easy to work with him, he is great with lights, making you look your best. We covered multiple looks, I am really happy with the images we got. I've worked with many photographers before and can confidently say, Rafael is one of the BEST! I was so happy with the photos and recommended him to all my friends :) Don't look any further, he is the one!!! More...

I had a wonderful photo shoot with Rafael. I went in asking for one decent head shot for my LinkedIn and ended up with over 100 excellent photos to choose from! Rafael is very professional and kind and put me at ease straight away, since I'm camera shy. The whole process was very quick, and Rafael offered me lots of advice, from poses through to which shots I should consider for LinkedIn. The hard part was choosing between all the great shots he took. When I finally selected the one I wanted, he retouched the photo straight away. Can't recommend highly enough! More...

So much to say about Rafael! His work ethic, his patience, his professionalism is very admirable! We contacted him a day before he got us in and boy were we glad we went with him! The studio was so clean, comfortable and welcoming. He made us feel so comfortable and took a good amount of photos to pick from. He took his time and didn't make us feel rushed when it was time to choose the pictures for the final touch up. Highly recommend, would give more than a 5 star if I could :) We will definitely be referring friends and family and going back ourselves for more shots in the future! More...

I could not recommend shooting with Rafael more. From the moment I arrived at his studio he was professional and accommodating, and I could tell he really cared that I got the photos I wanted. He was incredibly knowledgeable and gave me great guidance on what types of shots would work best. He was patient as I did wardrobe changes, and even worked into his lunch break a little bit to make sure we got the right shots. The photos came out better than I couldve ever imagined! If you're thinking about shooting with Rafael I highly highly recommend it! More...

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! More...

Rafael is truly amazing to work with. Our medical office needed some head shots and all came out so beautiful. Had a hard time choosing since all of them looked great! He definitely made it happen from the beginning to the end. Made us feel comfortable and totally didn't rush. Very accommodating with our schedule and time. The studio is big, open,clean and serine. So glad we made the choice to go with The Light Committee. We will definitely be back! More...

This review is long overdue! The Light Committee deserves more than 5 stars. To say we had an amazing experience would be an understatement. Everything from start to finish was perfect! We called Rafael a day before going in and he accommodated us. We went in as an office to take some pictures for our website and we were all so happy we stumbled upon this photography studio on Yelp. Rafael is down to earth, professional and top notch! He listens to what you want and ensures that you leave his studio happy. I'll definitely be referring friends and family to this studio and can't wait to be back! Thank you! More...

Rafael was great. He was very friendly and very helpful. As soon as you walk he in very inviting and always makes sure you have everything you need from comfort, water, a place to store things, a great set up to make any changes with your personal mirror, and a lot of space for everything. He even picked up everytime by phone and email back almost immediately. Ultimately, Rafael was very patient and explained how the process would go. After the photo shoot I waited no longer than 10 mins to get my files on a USB to take home and keep. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for this kind of services and highly recommend him. Thanks for the great experience! More...

Rafael was awesome to work with! His studio was cleanly and tidy, and he was very personable and professional. He had great ideas of his own and was open to my own ideas as well. He took the time to play with lighting and other adjustments to get the best possible shot, which I appreciated. Thanks Rafael! More...

We had our photo shoot today and let's just say it was one of the coolest experiences I've had. The studio has plenty of parking. It's nice and cool in there. There's awesome music playing. Setup takes minutes for any shoot. We were able to fly through a ton of shots for all six in our group and a few group photos all within an hour. We were choosing between three different studios in the area and while it was the price that really grabbed our attention, I'd say we would go back here for the service and ambience for the highest price that we were even quoted. This made our day and we look forward to sending our team in for photos on the regular! More...

I have no words to describe the amazing talent of The Light Committee as a photographer. He not only captures the photo, but the emotion tied to it. Every picture he took was breathtaking and you felt you could not live without that photo.
The Light Committee loves what he does and it is evident in the way he interacts with the model. He made the photo taking fun, interactive and produced a beautiful product.
Rafael is the best photographer, ever!!!

As a client I enjoyed working with Rafael. We run a footwear business and hired Rafael to photograph our footwear with a model. The results are exactly what we asked for. Rafael was very professional throughout the whole process, including prompt replies to our messages, and thinking ahead of time what we would need. He involved us at every step of the way to ensure nothing would go wrong. Would definitely work with him again in the future. More...

Q&A

It's cliché but, I truly love all of it - the lighting, the technical knowledge needed for a camera, understanding how to work with your subject to get the most out of them... Many photographers I've encountered dislike the post-production process in Photoshop. I even enjoy that.

I believe it's in my blood. My father ran his own business. His mother ran her own business. While there is certainly more risk to it than a 9-5, there's also a certain great freedom to it.

I believe my understanding of photography - from the technical aspects of a camera and lighting, the post-production, and the understanding of how to get the most out of your subjects - truly is what sets my pictures apart from the herd. You will be happy throughout the experience of working with me.
