"I had the best experience shooting with Ian! The environment was relaxed, comfortable, and made me feel completely at ease. Ian's attention to detail and critical eye made this one of the most productive headshot sessions. His input on wardrobe and styling was also immensely appreciated, and because of his theatre background I trusted his judgment completely. I'm extremely happy with the shots, and would highly recommend Ian to anyone!"

"From the moment you walk in the studio you know you're in the hands of a professional. The hardest part is picking from the hundreds of great shots you walk away with. Best session (and I've had a few) I've had in years."

"I had a wonderful session with Ian.  He creates such a comfortable, easy and fun atmosphere (also, great music)--I felt very relaxed and confident with him at the helm. My agent was very happy with my pictures and I am too!"

"I loved working with Ian! First, before our session he made sure to listen to all of my wants, concerns and needs. Second, on the day of the shoot he created a relaxing and fun environment. Then, all of that mixed with his profound knowledge of the biz plus his superb photography skills, we were able to capture my true essence, vibe and personality. I am so happy with my headshots and I am so grateful there is someone as organized, professional and talented as Ian!"
