Sam is the man....when it comes to headshots and professional photography. Fun, lighthearted and a master at making you feel at ease and getting the right expressions for the shot. Inside a studio or out on the street, Sam’s experience and professionalism shines through when it comes to making you look good. Highly recommended. More...

The experience working with Sam Diephuis was AMAZING. I’m over-the-moon excited about my photos!!! The goal of my photoshoot was to create Hero Imagery for my website. I’m in an investor in startup companies + consultant working on establishing my personal brand. The biggest difference working with Sam was just how comfortable he made me feel. I’ve never been particularly photogenic… and often feel uncomfortable being in front of the camera. Sam is so personable & easy going. His demeanor made me super comfortable - to the point that I almost forgot my picture was being taken. We did the photoshoot in Downtown LA. Sam kept us walking from location-to-location to capture TONS of different looks (i.e. exposed brick, cool metal backgrounds, street art, etc). The crew was really nimble & efficient (Sam + assistant + hair/makeup) - allowing us to fully maximize our time together. Over the course of the shoot, we took more than 2,000 photos. Afterwards, Sam helped me select the best ones. I left the experience with 10 INCREDIBLE photos + an additional 15-20 images that I’m excited to post on social media. If you’re looking to build out your personal brand, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND working with Sam Diephuis & Good Human!!! More...

Having my picture taken is not my favorite thing to do. Sam was a total pro and made it an enjoyable experience. He took the time to find out what I was envisioning and did a great job at achieving that. He really has an eye. I'd definitely recommend him! More...

I am the world's most camera shy person, thus a terrible subject. That didn't stop Sam from getting great shots of me, though. First, he made me feel very comfortable and distracted me with conversation and before I knew it the shoot was over and I had survived. This guy is practically a magician and my husband and I both really enjoyed the conversation with Sam too. More...

Sam of Good Human is the best! I've used him on several occasions and each time he's delivered exceptional photos. He's professional, easy to work with, and an all around great guy. To top it off, he's great at his craft. I often get complimented on my head shots and immediately send people Sam's way. If you're looking for a photographer who will listen to what you want and work to create the image and style you're looking for, Sam's your guy! More...

Good Human and Sam Deiphuis are excellent in catering to many different photography needs. Hard working and easy to communicate with I throughly recommend using them, in particular for head shots and other work related photography. Over the years of dealing with Sam and team, I have found them consistent and always a pleasure to deal with. More...

I can't speak highly enough about Good Human and the work Sam Diephuis and his team do. Not only have I hired them to do headshots for me and my team, but I have also worked with them on various photo and video projects. They are hard-working, friendly, responsible, and best of all, talented! I recommend Sam to anyone who asks me for a great photographer. Sam is also just a fun, kind, personable guy to work with- he puts my clients at ease and earns their trust and that shows in the results! More...

Sam Diephuis is a fantastic photographer. I've had the privilege of working with him on a variety of projects and shoots and he always brings his strongest game. As well as being technically strong and kitted out, he arrives with the best energy and gets the most natural results out of people. He's extraordinarily kind and accommodating, and I can't wait to hire him again. More...

Sam is a sensitive, professional and kind photographer who understands the image you want to project. His patience is amazing! The final results were very pleasing. Both my husband and I had our photographs taken for our Linkedin and web pages and would definitely recommend Sam. More...

Recently I had two photo-shoots with GoodHuman. Wow, now I understand the meaning of working with a professional photographer! Bausch Law Group is a personal injury law firm. Some time ago a friend of mine pointed out to me that the photos that we had on our site and social media profiles looked old, outdated and "cheep." That needed to be fixed! I ordered one photo-shoot of my office and the other one of me personally. Not only everyone was very impressed with the process, how smooth it was, everything was set up just right, the light, equipment, guidance, but also the product. We got incredible photos out of it!!! Better than I could have expected. Sam made us look truly professional and great.Do you need to spiff up your image? Sam at GoodHuman is your guy if you need professional photography done right! Most definitely recommend his services.Natalie A. Bausch, Esq. More...

I really genuinely like Sam. He's such a caring nice person and he did a great job making my husband I feel comfortable during the shoot. He took his time and made sure we had lots of different images to choose from. My husband needed a professional photo for linkedin and was very pleased. I'm a psychotherapist and told Sam I needed to look appealing to both teenagers and their parents. So kind, caring, also professional and a bit trendy/cool. He gave me exactly that. I'm very satisfied with the final shots. I will hire Sam again in the future. More...

Good Human Photography, with Sam Diephuis at the helm, is versatile and proficient, running amazing photo shoots indoor, outdoor, at the beach and in the rain, with children and families, professionals, elders and millennials. He's done multiple shoots for the cover story of my magazine. Sam seems so easy-going but he wastes no time and captures emotion, character and vibrancy. He's an unflappable, professional and warm personality, and he and his organization do tremendous work. More...

Getting professional photos done can be a drag -- no matter how good looking you might think you are. It's difficult to know where to begin or what questions to ask, and you'll get thousand different opinions from a thousand different people. Good Human was a life-saver for us. Sam is an absolute pleasure to work with. He has such a warm and pleasant demeanor. The best part was that I could completely trust him to capture me with my ideal clients in mind. Bravo! More...

If you want to know the difference between a picture of you and a photograph of you, go speak with Sam of GoodHuman. I've had my picture taken for work before, and they were good. After a shoot with Sam, I now have photographs! Sam was able to capture my personality and my character, he went far beyond "stand here and smile." He has an amazing eye and spent the time with me to make sure he captured the right images, the right way. He is a true professional. If your headshots or images for your online brand were done on a cell phone or taken by a friend, it's time for an upgrade! Sam with GoodHuman is a true artist and I would strongly recommend him to anyone that wants to take their image to the next level.New phots will be uploaded soon! More...

We needed some new pictures for the office team. We wanted something professional, but also something that was a little more interesting than the standard imagery I see on my competitors’ sites. Before we shot the pictures Sam and I had a great conversation about how, why and where we should create these photos and how they would be unique to our company, make us stand out, and show our personal touch. We ended up using a background that was personal to our brand, showing just enough of the office to allow our customers to see where we work, but out of focus enough to not distract from the subject. They were awesome!We loved the pictures and we would highly recommend Sam and GoodHuman! More...

I own a small architectural firm in Santa Monica and we hired GoodHuman to photograph us in a authentic way. We really did NOT want the corny images we see on our competitors sites. GoodHuman did a great job! I would suggest them to anyone. More...

LOOOOOVED my shoot with Good Human. My photographer was Sam, the owner, and he was so fun to shoot with. He had a bunch of ideas and helped me figure out what to do. I had no idea. I needed to look fun for my picture book author photo. I think he captured exactly what I was going for. More...

GoodHuman was easy to work with. Sam (the owner) did a great job of listening to me about my business (I'm a realtor in young/hip/urban/DTLA environment) he created some images that work with that clientele, the clientele that I do most of my business with. We did some standard headshots as well as some environmental portraits. I was very happy with the entire process. I would definitely recommend Good Human to anyone looking for photography that is fun, and fresh, and wants to not only get everything they want but have fun doing it too! More...

I have used Good Human and will continue to use them for all my marketing needs both individually and with work colleagues. They always provide a great look and it's always a fun and positive experience. With their wide range of services there is something for both small an and large businesses. This kind of service is hard to get done right so it's great to know about Good Human, they are good guys to know and work with. More...

Words can't describe the professionalism and results provided by Good Human on my shoot. Despite my selection of a challenging location, Sam was able to find the optimal light throughout the afternoon shoot, generating photographs that far exceeded my expectations. A good photographer not only listens to the needs of the client, but is able to translate that direction into superior results. Sam not only did that, but gently guided and directed my subjects to enhance the original concept. Chemistry is an important factor between photographer and subject. Sam has a friendly and affable nature to him, so he was able to make the shoot both creative and fun. He had a relaxed energy which didn't impede his high standards. Sam wasn't at all afraid to try things, to suggest things, to tweak things here and there, and if something wasn't working, he would quickly make that decision and move on to something that did. The end product was phenomenal, and I say that as both a photographer myself, and having exceptionally high standards for the work I need done. I recommend Sam and GoodHuman wholeheartedly. More...

I really liked the approach of Good Human towards shooting for us. Professional, yet friendly, they really helped us. We called in for one project, and ended up having tons of other projects with them. The main guy who shot with us, Sam, is absolutely great. Ask for him should you call. He is really talented and a super nice person. It makes the all experience of photo and marketing so much more pleasurable than what we did in the past. More...

Good Human is amazing! My photographer was Sam and he's not only a wonderful photographer, but he's so fun to work with too. I needed some pictures for my website and I am so happy with the pictures and how they turned out. Sam was very professional. He has a really good eye and captures things on camera with the lighting and the setting that I would never think of. I was very comfortable with Sam and his warm energy put me instantly at ease. He loves what he does and it shows in the high quality photographs he takes. I would hands down recommend Good Human to everyone who is looking for a photographer they can trust and expect excellent pictures from. I will definitely be using Good Human again for sure!!!
