Excellent Reputation

I believe everyone deserves a great headshot, that is why on my websites I advertise “Quality At A Reasonable Price”. Whether you are an executive, a CEO or someone just starting your career, you should always have a great headshot.

Since 1993, I have been servicing the photography needs of my corporate and professional clients. Not only do I work in Palo Alto but also the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley.

My clients have the advantage of my years of experience throughout the process of creating a fantastic headshot for them. First, I guide them through the photoshoot. Then I help them choose their favorite photos. Afterward, I personally retouch every headshot with them present. Specifically, I do this to have their input as to how much or how little work they would like done. 

Best Headshot Photographer

While I was at a photography seminar, the speaker advised new photographers to, “Fake it till you make it.” This took me back to when I began my career. Is that what I did? Then I realized, no, I was always honest with my clients. I delivered what I promised. In the beginning they knew I was learning from them and my pricing reflected that. Because of my years of experience, I can now say that I am one of the best headshot photographers in the area. I have earned my reputations.  My reviews are not bought, non solicited and real, even the ones that Yelp currently does not recommend. 

As I have mentioned in a previous post, Work hard to become the Best Headshot Photographer.

Most Experienced Headshot Photographer

All these years I described my photography experience in a humble way. Just recently, after 27 years, I mentioned in an ad that I am the Most Experienced Photographer in Palo Alto, I think I earned this title, my experience and the quality of my work proves it.
