It's has been a while since a head shot. I think is was for my password. Ugh!Mark was gratuitous and made the process very simple and quick. I recommend getting the retouching service. He's better and cheaper than a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Mark! More...

I needed a headshot for my 13 year old daughter and being new to this arena I figured Orange County Headshots was a good place to start! I was right, Mark put us at ease right away and I liked how he explained a little about the art of capturing the perfect pose to my daughters so she knew why he was asking her to pose certain ways once the camera was rolling. As I desired some touch-up work and time was of the essence, I was pleased that their responses were timely. My daughter now has a beautiful headshot and I strongly recommend Orange County Headshots!

I had to get a professional headshot for work and it had to have a particular background. I found OC headshots online and called them. Mark was very professional and friendly right from the start. I described what I was trying to accomplish and he asked if I had a picture that he could see in order to ensure he could do exactly what I was asking for. That was the only place I needed to call, I immediately felt he knew what he was talking about. We scheduled an appointment, he provided me with some guidelines in order to properly prepare for my big day. He made me feel at ease, took great shots and provided me with many photos to choose from. After I chose my photo, he worked his magic on it to make me look about as good as I could possibly hope for. This gentleman is a real professional. If you want top-notch work coupled with top-notch service, this is where you need to go. Trust me!

Outstanding Experience in every way! Mark was so pleasant to work with and his photos captured a wide variety of expressions. Mark’s personality helped me relax during the photo shoot and his guidance helped me feel comfortable in front of the camera. His expertise and knowledge were also beneficial with the decision making process. Altogether, including pricing and the timely response by Mark and Kari, the experience could not have been any better. I highly recommend Orange County Headshots by Mark Jordan to family and friends and anyone else looking for their best headshot. More...

I recently had my headshots taken by Mark Jordan. The entire shoot, from start to finish, took maybe about 15-20 minutes. Mark is a really cool person and a pleasure to interact with . He explained the process step-by-step in a very clear manner, and expressed genuine concern for my best interests, financial or otherwise. He was prompt with email correspondence, and I received my final product in a matter of days. I am unbelievably satisfied with the results! Needless to say, I highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking about getting professional quality headshots taken. As an added plus, for returning customers the solo shoot (which costs $50) is free :) More...

I've had two headshot sessions at Orange County Headshots -- one in-studio and one on-location. Both times, the results were exactly what I was looking for. Mark is extremely helpful and easy to work with during the session, and the photos that result are truly great. Also, the turnaround is very quick - a business day for proofs, and another one for retouching. Highly Rrecommended! More...

Definite 5-star rating...needing a headshot to replace the old one on our company internet site.  There was no comparison between the two photographers.  The entire shoot (from beginning to end) took less than 45 minutes, with over a hundred proofs to choose from!  The proofs were sent the following day, and after a day of touching up, I had my final the next day.  Overall, a GREAT experience!

Mark Jordan, Master Craftsman Photographer cared about getting the best headshot possible. He made adjustments to lighting, suggested different positioning, didn't hesitate to take a lot of pictures, etc. I recommend him without hesitation for photo business needs. I could not have asked for more beautiful photos to use for my Business profile and Linkedin page.

All best,

Great 5 stars experience. I was referred to Mark by another business associate, I have to start by saying that I do not like to be photographed and I was kind of tense, until I shook Mark's hand and he made the process truly seamless and very comforting. He provided very easy instructions to look great. Thank you Mark More...

After determining I needed a current professional headshot, I contacted Mark Jordon. Mark was very welcoming and thorough with his process. By the time I showed up to his studio, I was very confident that I was well prepared to have my photo taken. Mark approached my shoot in a way that told me he was looking for the exact image I wanted to convey. When the proofs came back, I biggest problem was making a choice. I now have great new head shots for all my business sites and they have received loads of compliments! Thanks Mark. Fantastic work! More...

I was asked to get a professional headshot taken by my employer. Having no idea where to go for that kind of service, I searched for "where to get a headshot near me". To my surprise, half a dozen locations came up on that search. After reading through several with mixed reviews, I found Orange County Headshots in RSM that had 5 out of 5 stars with 40 + reviews. I decided to go with them after reading the reviews others have left and I now know why they have that great rating. From start to finish, I had a great experience with Mark taking my headshot. He is a true professional in what he does and I would recommend his service to anyone looking for a headshot!!His pricing was fair, he was able to get me in the next day. That night, I received my photos to review and 48 hours later, I had the finished product to provide to my employer!  Thanks again Mark and keep up the great work! More...

Mark is a phenomenal photographer.  He knows his stuff and exactly how to coach you so that the best "you" comes to life.  Actually, with his retouch work, he makes you into an even better you...seriously.In addition to being great, he's fast .  Lightning fast.  I called him with an urgent professional photo request on a Monday morning.  By 2:30p.m. that day, he was shooting my photos.  That evening, I was able to view the photos and choose which one I wanted him to focus on and retouch.  By Tuesday, he had delivered to me a high resolution photo that was retouched well...not so much that I that it wasn't me, but to degree that made me think, "this is the best me."  I'd use Mark again and I am delighted to recommend him.

Mark Jordan/Orange County Headshots take the greatest headshots I have ever seen! Everybody says this, but, I am probably the LEAST PHOTOGENIC person on EARTH. I don't even have ONE good wedding photo and needless to say my wife isn't happy about that.After about a 30 minute session with Mark Jordan, I walked out of there the best photos of myself that I have ever seen! I don't know if it's their relaxing atmosphere, his awesome skills, some other "force" or (this is probably it) a combination of the three, but he literally worked magic on me.I recommend their services to ANYONE!

I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Mark and Kari exceeded my expectations. Mark is a true professional, and he certainly lived up to his tag line that "no concern is too small. " He is highly skilled with the camera and has an incredible eye for detail, in addition to being lightening-fast with his turnaround time. I wasn't even referred by anyone; I just chose him online because his location was convenient for me, but I got lucky because he did such a great job. I won't consider anyone else for future work, and I couldn't be happier with my experience and the end product. More...

Chose Mark based on Yelp but wasn't sure what to expect. Was very pleasantly surprised at the personal touches from scheduling, emails, and the final touch ups and file exchange. As a busy professional I don't want to deal with flakes who don't reply to emails or get the job done timely. Mark was a true professional himself. More...

Mark Jordan is a world.class photographer and has done many shots for my music career over the years. So many people own a camera and think if they spend enough money they are photographers. Truth be told, there are few with the knowledge and experience that Mark has and his work shows it. I love the studio shots, live performance shots and even the wedding and engagement shots Mark has done for me. If you want the real deal, call a pro and not just another ebay camera owner that dresses up like a photographer! Mark Jordan will always deliver....... More...

Mark is outstanding.  With my agency, we've worked with many photographers over the years. I can be picky, but Mark is easy to work with and very professional.  This isn't something Mark is doing while he's waiting for his "big break" in something else.  He was fully focused on creating the best headshots to serve my various purposes.  The shoot was casual while being professional, and his friendly demeanor is relaxing.  Setting up the appointment was convenient, communication was solid, the post-shoot process flowed smoothly, and his prices were good. Two thumbs up. :) More...

Mark Jordan has been my photographer for nearly two and a half decades and I keep returning for two reasons: He is brilliantly talented at making me, and my family, look amazing AND he is completely fabulous to work with. He consistently strives to go above and beyond what you would expect - and that is because he takes such great pride in his work. He actually cares about what he creates for you. He is one of the top professional photographers in the world for a reason - he is that good. Don't even think about going with second best - you only have to see Mark's quality to know you made the right choice. More...

The experience I had in my headshot session with Mark Jordan greatly surpassed all my expectations.

Very easy process to get a great set of photos done. No one really enjoys getting their picture taken, but everyone loves the complements on how good the pictures really do bring out your best. Mark Jordan gets the credit for taking rough subject matter and through his photographic talents delivering to his customers such terrific results. More...

It's a pure joy to be served by Mark Jordan. He has a special way of bringing out the best smiles in me. My headshot appointment was quick and the finished product took little time to receive.  Our session was fun and painless, and Mark was sensitive to my needs and special requests.I love Orange County Headshots because they love and appreciate me and every individual who passes through their door. I cannot give them a higher recommendation. More...

I had headshots taken with Orange County Headshots prior to medical school and I could not be more grateful for how much he's helped me. I was able to apply for scholarships and internships with sheer confidence and even managed to hear back from a quite a few. Mark Jordan's studio is set up in conjunction with his beautiful home, which keeps the vibe casual while very professional. Setting up appointments was convenient, communication was easy, feedback/proofs were prompt, prices competitive and I was so happy with the results.  A true artist, a true professional, and I look forward to working with him again.

Posting on behalf of my husband since his review was hidden: I've worked with plenty of photographers in the past. All very professional with quality results. Mark takes photography to another level. Not only was I able to have my session scheduled same day, I received my final digital copies ready to use within 24 hours after selecting my image. Great turnaround time, extremely friendly, unmatched professionalism and overall incredible experience. I highly recommend working with Mark for any of your professional photography needs. More...

I have worked with Mark Jordan (Orange County Head Shots) for 30 over years. It all started with a gorgeous formal bridal portrait and since then we have called upon Mark for all our portraits needs, both personal and professional photography. Mark is not only a joy to work with but he also a perfectionist when it comes to the details of his work. He is a true artist in all aspects and is very passionate about his work.I recently hired Mark not only for my my new professional headshot but also to create our family portraits. There were so many expressions we loved, the decision process was simply overwhelming. Fortunately, Mark is a very patient man - he helped us every step of the way and ensured our choices matched our needs. We could not be any more delighted! Because of working with Mark for so many years, I have become a bit of a "portrait snob." When friends and associates forward me their headshots, they appear sterile, washed out, and lack that special sparkle that I've grown accustomed to with Mark's unparalleled quality. I always refer them to call Mark Jordan and could not recommend him any more enthusiastically. Thank you Mark for doing such phenomenal work for me and my family over all these years. I have always been thrilled with not only the beautiful portraits you've created for us, but your extraordinary service, kind heart and and consummate professionalism. Looking forward to our next portrait! More...

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Mark Jordan of Orange County Headshots, since 1991 and have commissioned Mark to create multiple headshots for me, personally, as well as for my company: Strictly Vacations in Santa Barbara. Being a one time professional photographer myself, and having specialized in celebrity weddings, I was and still am very particular in regards to the aesthetic values of photography. Rarely have I seen a photographer rise to the caliber of Mark Jordan's imaginative and creative flair. When you want the very best, I can think of no one better than Mark Jordan at Orange County Headshots. More...

I came to Mark because I hated a recent headshot very much. It looked stiff and very formal. I had noticed how good a friend's was, and she recommended Mark. I paid exactly the same money (totally reasonable) to have Mark re-take my headshot again, and the result is so much better. The experience was far improved as well. Mark has an easy going, pleasant manner that makes you feel far less self conscious. He has professional posing ideas, that feel natural. His lighting is also very good. The speed to get the results and the proofing review process are smooth and easy. Mark's touch-up work on the final photo is professional as well (me but a little better). Mark was simple to book an appointment with (one call and done) and enjoyable to work with. His results are excellent. I will recommend Mark to all my friends and colleagues and am now recommending him to you. You will be happy with your headshot! More...

I first had the pleasure of working with Mark when my employer, was updating their corporate website.  Several of the company officers met at Mark's studio to take our head shots.  Mark provided guidance on what to bring to the shoot.  From the outset, Mark was very engaging and professional, and made all of us very comfortable.  The proof is in the product, and I will submit that all our photos brought out the best in us, and the head shots were a welcome addition to the company website.On several other occasions, Mark also took photos of company events, and again was a true professional, and brought out the best in his subjects.I have recommended other colleagues to Orange County Headshots, and no one left disappointed.If you want to be captured in the most flattering manner, I definitely recommend Mark and Orange County Headshot.

Mark is a true professional who is a master of his craft. He has the ability to make his subject(s) comfortable and draw the finest points of their personalities out. He's going to provide world-class service and results...his is a product many levels beyond what you'll find elsewhere. Mark offers prompt and relative responses and provides great advice on every aspect of the experience, from what to wear to how he can help you to look your best. I highly recommend him! More...

While you can get your professional headshot done by pretty much everyone (including your own 'selfie' on your phone), I would highly suggest you don't. I believed enough in Orange County headshots (and Mark Jordan) that I paid to have the President of one of my clients to have his headshot taken by Mark.  Considering this client has been with me for over 3 years, I absolutely positively cannot afford to have any service I suggest fail to be the best.I was rewarded, in spades.  On the most recent business call, the CEO was explaining that the company needed to have their website headshots updated and the President (who has been the president of companies earning $500 million a year) said that his headshot from Mark was "The best photo of him, ever".If you want results that Rock Stars (literally) and Fortune 1000 Professionals seek out, I highly recommend Mark.

Q&A

Being an artist, one might surmise that what makes my work so enjoyable is the creative process. While designing headshots is definitively a facet I relish, the one component of my daily activity I cherish most is meeting so many interesting people. Interacting with people from all walks of life and from every profession one could imagine, gives me more pleasure than all the other aspects of my career. In fact, so many of friends today are people I met while photographing them. One could say that creating headshots has become an excuse for being introduced to extraordinary people. I wouldn't want it any other way.

Considering I started out as a songwriter, turned elementary school teacher, launching a career in photography was nowhere on my radar, let alone managing a business. However, after my visit to Hawaii, where my foray with a 35mm camera was most fortuitous, I soon discovered with the serendipitous generosity of a Kodak executive that I was naturally gifted with visual expression. His daughter was in my second-grade classroom. As I was projecting my favorite slides of Hawaii to my students (with hopes of motivating original Haiku poetry from them), he snuck in the back and sat silently in the dark, waiting to retrieve his daughter for early dismissal. Once the slideshow concluded, he quickly came forward and asked the name of the photographer on the slide reel... Suffice it to say, the conversation that ensued transformed the direction of my life. It wasn't long before people from all of Orange County where knocking on my door to photograph them. In other words, I did not so much as 'start my own business,' as the business started me.

It would be easy and logical to point out my decades of photographic experience, the many honors and awards I've received, my education, or even my place in the International Hall of Fame and Musuem. However, I think my clients would tell you what sets me apart is my flair for capturing their personality, genuinely and artistically. Whether I'm photographing their family or creating their professional headshot, they are amazed not only at the extent I'll go to elicit something special about them, but how I make it "fun" and "painless." I think what they sense is that I am as passionate about people as I am about photography.
