I’ve never been so pleased with my headshots before! A friend of mine recommended RJ to me, and I’m so glad he did. His website has terrific resources for actors (including what to do the day before and day of your headshot session). We had a consultation before booking the session, and I could tell he really knew his stuff. I felt completely at ease during our session, and I really appreciated his direction. He was super quick getting my photos to me, and the hardest part was deciding which ones to get retouched!
I’ve been in this business for 20+ years. The one thing I detest is the process of getting New Head Shots. RJ Lewis has changed all that for me. Not only have I gotten the best pics, every time, of my career. But he, also, has made the experience painless and fun with an Expert Makeup Artist. RJ has an amazing eye and a gift for lighting. Along with being affordable, you will regret going else where, to have your essence captured.
RJ is such a gem of a human being – and a fantastic photographer! I priced a lot of photographers in NY and all of the good ones were at least $1,000 – except for RJ. He could easily charge twice as much as he does – and still cost less (and be just as good – if not better) than others. But he sincerely wants to make Headshots affordable for actors. He does beautiful work, and he truly cares. He takes his time – I had four outfit changes and was with him for the better part of a day. It was such a FUN shoot! And I never felt like he was rushing me – He’s totally laid back, yet he works with a sense of urgency. He had all of my photos uploaded for viewing by the same evening of my shoot and, once I finally narrowed down my choices (not an easy task – there were so many good ones!) I would absolutely work with RJ again – and I have already recommended him to several of my friends.
Shooting with RJ was an experience I won’t soon forget. Not only did he make me comfortable and help me pick out looks; he is an adamant professional. Each of the photographs told a story. His vision helps to capture me not as a character, but as myself. I am grateful to have worked with someone who so candid and adept. If you are thinking of capturing headshots, weddings, bar mitzvahs, etc. you can’t go wrong with this brilliant guy.
Truly an amazing professional experience getting to work with RJ. He created an environment where I could become comfortable to bring the best to the surface. A friend of mine referred me after I had seen her pictures. He truly has an eye for photography and bring the best out of you! Thank you again RJ for a wonderful shoot and photos I can feel confident laying in front of Casting Directors!
“I have been in and out of the industry since I was about 13 and obviously since then, I have needed head shots. Like anything, head shots require a very specific technique and can be challenging (for me anyways). I met RJ at a seminar and was so impressed with his work. I booked with him immediately and had the best session with him! The techniques, his advice, the make up artist his uses, everything, was amazing! I will absolutely use him in the future, and recommend him to anyone! By far the best head shot session I’ve ever had! Thank you!!”
RJ worked on a photoshoot with me with amazing concepts we worked on together. I can’t believe how amazing all the photographs turned out. Each and everyone. I could not have asked for a better experience because RJ helped me feel and look great! He is a consummate professional and helped made the shoot perfect for me.
I am extremely happy with RJ’s work. I went to him for headshots and he overdelivered! First was scheduling and he was very accomodating. The day of the session was painless and it went very fast. Even more important is the fact that I had fun during the session. RJ has a great eye, his selection of background and his focus on your needs makes every photo pop out at you! I came to RJ by recommendation and too will recommend RJ for any type fo photography that you want and need!
RJ is not only clearly such a talented photographer, but he is so kind and immediately makes you so comfortable in order to get that perfect shot! I’ve already recommended him to many of my friends and I will continue to use RJ in the future. He’s the best!!
