A true professional! Alan makes it really easy and doesn't settle for anything less than great. A big relief having real expertise to work with. For someone who can naturally be shy, he had me laughing the whole time. 10 stars More...

Going to Mr. Alan Weissman's studio was such an amazing experience! At first I was very nervous about the photo-shoot, but when I got there he welcomed me in and helped me with my small luggage; I instantly felt a sense of ease and good aura coming off of him which took a chunk of my nerves away. Not only that, but right off the bat I felt like he really enjoys his work and likes to think of the many possibilities he can help you, the client, get the photos you need; and that is exactly how it went throughout the shoot. His team are super pleasant and easy going, and I'm very thankful for the work they also put in. I hope you enjoy creating great head-shots with him and his team. It is worth it! More...

I loved working with Alan and his makeup artist Jeffrey! They made me feel like a star. I found Alan because I was looking for a photographer who did timeless classic head shots, and who had great photos of actors with similar coloring as my own. I saw his shots of Taryn Manning and Cameron Diaz and was impressed!I love my pictures even though I'm neurotic as all hell and super self-critical. Everyone I have shown loves them. He quickly noticed how I overthink things and told me to relax about the tiny details. He taught me a little about putting the energy out there that I want in the world, for acting, getting agents, and succeeding in life and I really appreciate this.Thanks for the life lessons and great photos!

Alan and his crew are adorable real people who walked through the whole process as if we were becoming a team together. Everyone helped me feel okay to be vulnerable to take the best picture they possibly could. I cannot thank Yasmine, Owen, Tonya and Alan enough for their beautiful raw and honest unique energy. I’m gonna miss Lulu and Winston (their adorable dogs) :) much much love to every single person and dog there. Thank you!! More...

I did my first professional headshot with Alan!He is very sweet and silly - he helps you make you feel like yourself. He's very organic and transparent. He was perfect for me because he was patient and when it comes to the lightings, he was super meticulous and OCD - his attitude of professionalism made me feel professional that it transferred through my pictures, even though in the beginning I was nervous and frozen up. He has very beautiful dogs Winston and Lulu. I'm gonna miss them!I cannot describe how professional and down to earth him and his staffs were. Friendly and serious at the same time. I cannot thank Yasmine enough also for being the perfectionist just like Alan, coming to fix my hair and makeup throughout the shoot every few seconds. They are like a family and you cannot not be your best in front of the camera when you're with their energy!If I had the opportunity, I would love to come back here for more shoot, to help them have more fun than this time. I am tremendously grateful for the entire experience. Thank you so much Alan for giving your everything, with your passion and patience I am very inspired as a person!! And thank you Yasmine, Owen, & Tonya for making my shoot comfortable and smooth. I would love to see you guys again!! More...

This was my first experience getting professional headshots and I have to say I don’t foresee going in any other direction with any other photographer. Not only was Alan incredibly dedicated to accomplishing the perfect shots, he was wonderfully welcoming, hilarious, accommodating and utterly professional. He knows how to make sure his clients are comfortable in front of the camera and won’t stop working on a look until it’s undoubtedly just right. He understands the individuality that comes with his subjects, and uses each clients’ personality to capture the most authentic pictures by highlighting their inner character. I am beyond thrilled by his work and imagine everyone else in need of a professional photographer would be to if they chose to work with Alan! More...

Alan is absolutely AMAZING. I’ve done a lot of research and saw many potential photographers to book for new headshots but the moment I saw Alan’s website and his work, I knew I had to book him. BEST. DECISION. I’VE. EVER. MADE. Alan will treat you like a friend he had known for years so if you’re someone like me who can be a bit shy at first, I promise you you’re in good hands. He’s also really fun to work with, very collaborative and very supportive. I told him I’ve had headshot troubles in the past so I developed this insecurity that I’ll probably never gonna have a good headshot. But he reassured me that that’s not true and he really helped me bring out the best of me. Alan is simply the best and the greatest. More...

I  have never liked having my picture taken. I don't think I photograph particularly well and it's not something I look forward to. Honestly, I'd rather go to the dentist's office than have my picture taken.  But Alan's detail oriented approach as well as patience and experience in trying to get a natural reaction definitely produced the best photograph I've ever had taken of me. Whether you're an actor or not, I'd strongly encourage you to spend the extra money on Alan. I highly doubt you'll regret your choice. More...

One of the things I can't stand is posing for pictures, whether for headshots, on the red carpet or during family events.I always feel frozen and fake which is the opposite of what an actor should feel .Alan was so wonderful to work with. I immediately felt at ease and I had FUN! He will NOT stop until he's satisfied which takes the burden off of me because I honestly don't know what the heck is the difference between a good photo, a great photo and a PHOTO THAT GETS YOU IN THE DOOR!His home, his team, his wife and his dogs are just as lovely as him.

I am not an actor.  I've worked in the industry as an executive, a producer, and writer, and not used to doing head shots but needed one in a hurry to run for office in one of the guilds I belong to.  Alan's name was a name well-known to me.  I don't love having my picture taken.  This is what happened:  Alan is the loveliest man and his studio up in a canyon is tranquil and beautiful.  He is an artist at the top of his profession who's photographed the likes of Morgan Freeman, Doris Roberts (of EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND fame), and Robert Redford.  As one who works in the industry, I would tell actors to forego those quickie 100 dollar shots and really invest in artists like Alan.  He not only does head shots, but also does stunning art photos of subjects.  He has the biggest heart.  His assistant Lily, who is just the loveliest person, was beyond meticulous in setting up the shoot, providing me information every step of the way, and providing great advice.  She's a rare find.  Yasmin, a stylist who does fashion week, came in and did my hair and touch-up makeup and picked out my clothes.  Her style choices made a dramatic change to the images we got.  She too is at the top of her game.  Like Alan and Lily, Yasmin is calming.  The whole team created an almost Zen-like experience for me, who walked in the door, tense and hassled by professional obligations.  The whole experience felt more like a relaxing getaway.  I felt supported and cared for and everyone went above and beyond and then some.  Don't make a mistake and go anywhere else, invest in your future and get the best of the best at Alan's studio.  Love you guys.

If you want the most personalized experience possible and know that every dollar spent was worth it, then look no further than Alan. The moment you meet him and his staff you are greeted so warmly you feel as if you had already been friends for years. His studio set up is very professional and he makes sure you feel as comfortable as possible, especially since he asked what music I liked to listen to and ended up playing it the whole time (Travis Scott and Lil Uzi Vert, my boys!!). His assistant, Susie, was there next to him the whole time helping with the process and really making me feel comfortable in front of the camera and created a great dynamic with Alan. They wanted to get to know me as a person and didn't just see me as another numbered client. Originally I just wanted to do two looks, a commercial and theatrical, for acting but ended up doing a third look because I enjoyed the experience so much. If I had more money, I might have just kept throwing money at him for how good these photos were turning out during the entire session. He spent some time picking out the best photos for me for all the looks and I've never felt more excited for starting to get out there in the acting world after seeing the winners that we found. All in all, I can't recommend this guy enough. He takes his art and craft of photography very seriously but at the same time knows how to have fun and is extremely charismatic. It's a celebrity experience unlike any other. More...

Everything I've ever been told by industry professionals is to never short change your headshots. NEVER. Yah you can probably just go with those cookie cutter 100$ quick in quick out headshot sessions and walk away with one good shot. I went on my quest to find my guy/girl, someone with 20+ years of headshot experience, takes their time to get to know YOU and uses that information to create a relaxing environment to shoot in. Also someone that wouldn't rack my bank account, ambitious I know...I was somehow fortunate enough to stumble upon Alan's website. I couldn't be more happy with the results, while usually you only get a few good shots, Alan literally took 300 absolutely stunning photos making it suuuper difficult for me to pick which ones I wanted retouched and man, that is a fantastic problem to have.

Agents can be super particular of which headshots you use and the looks they provide, so in the case that they don't like any of the ones I had retouched I can just be like well here, check out this online gallery of 100's of beautiful headshots and pick one!!!!!!!!!

Such an amazing and talented photographer, it took me two months to find a photographer for my headshots, yet TWO minutes to fall in love with Alan’s experience, techniques and knowledge.

From the time I entered his studio, Alan welcomed us (my sister and myself) with a great smile, lovely crew and adorable dogs. With his funny character and humor he made us feel very conformable and only after few minutes we felt like we are sitting in our own living room with someone we know for years!

He took a lot of his own time trying to know me further, helped me pick the right outfits for the session in order to get the best out of me. Such an amazing person.

He then brought all his +28 years of experience into live with his amazing techniques on poses, lightings and angles. And what I liked the most was the fact that he changed the whole lighting system and place dozen of times just to get the best out of me !!

He truly made me feel and look like a STAR and the pictures turned out to be AMAZING !! so Thank you, Thank You and Thank You ☺

Special thanks to Alan’s assistance “Stav” as well, who was amazing in coordinating and responding all my queries/mails in a short period of time with her funny, approchable and professional personality.

My advice to you !! Stop wasting your time searching for headshot photographer!! Just go to Alan Weissman site and book your session with one of LA’s best headshot photographer, I guarantee hours of FUN ☺ and AMAZING PICS ... Looking forward for further headshots !

I promise you one thing; if you need high quality, pristine, and amazing headshots that capture your absolute best, you need look no further. Alan and his team are simply wonderful. Alan is warm, friendly, disarming, and passionate about his clients and his work. His immense talent and skill in the world of photography and headshots is blatantly obvious while working with him.Alan really takes his time getting to know you prior to shooting. He offered coffee and water and sat me down to get acquainted with me and what shots that would serve my individual career best. Stav, his assistant, asked what music I'd prefer and adjusted it throughout the shoot to my liking. Alan even helped me choose my wadrobe which made me totally comfortable with our selections because his expertise with what would work best were obvious. He then creatively picked 3 different locations to shoot and began to build the lighting. We then started shooting and his ability to direct me was perfect. I'm a good actor, but modeling or doing stills isn't my forte. Alan made me feel like a pro while he coached me through each of the shots. Myyyyyyy goodness, when he pulled me over to the monitor to review a few shots I was 100% blown away. I never knew I could look so good! He said, "man, you look like a movie star" and with absolutely humility, I agree with him. My shots look like serious A-list caliber work.Everything about my experience was a 10!! I can't wait to get back and work with Alan again soon, as well as share this gem of a person and photographer with friends in the business.If you can't tell, I'm head over heels for Alan Weismann photography and his team.

I wish I could give this 100 stars.Never in my life could I have imagined the incredible product produced by Alan Weissman (photographer) and Stephen Dimmick (hair/makeup).  I walked in truly not knowing what to expect because I had actually already had a "professional photo" taken that I was not happy with. I guess this was my final try. I AM SO HAPPY I GAVE THIS A TRY!!  The photos turned out 1000x better than my expectation. Alan and Stephen were very professional, very fun and kind as well as funny. I walked in feeling a bit nervous but with some coffee and some chatting, I immediately felt comfortable with both of them. I felt like they were both on my team--trying to get the best photo possible!  Not once did I feel rushed or uncomfortable!  The photo shoot is done in Alan's beautiful home--he has an assistant, who was sweet. He has a whole room set up as a studio with all the lighting made to be perfect!  I highly recommend the makeup and hair artist Stephen too because he made my skin look so beautiful and fresh and he even did several makeup touch ups during the shoot!  He was constantly jumping in to fix my clothing just so or to move my hair to make it perfect. Alan took his time during the shoot, he made me feel special and as though I was inspiring him--he is a true and genuine artist, you can tell he loves his work. He gave me the perfect amount of direction: turn your head this way or tilt your head that way. His attention to detail was amazing!After the shoot, I called my mom and she told me she could hear the confidence exuding from my voice! I told her that I thought the whole experience was worth 4x more than it costed me... How much would you pay for the PERFECT shot?P.S - I was getting a professional shot for application to residency from medical school and I highly recommend this for the ERAS application.  The final shots that Alan got just scream "I am intelligent, confident, and you WANT to hire me."  This was exactly what I wanted and exactly what I got. I will be recommending Alan to all of my medical school friends. More...
