Best Headshot Photographer in Los Angeles?

If you are shopping around for headshots, you want to work with the best photographer in Los Angeles you can find. Much of this depends on the capabilities of the photographer. First, there is what they are technically capable of doing and what they are limited by based on the equipment they have to use. This includes if they work in a commercial photography studio in addition to being able to work outdoors, with studio light and sunlight. But it is also about their capability to deliver good customer service. Before selecting The Light Committee, please shop around to confirm you are getting the best balance of exceptional image quality, great pricing, and excellent customer service. On this page, I trust you will confirm this.

Impressively Affordable Headshots Los Angeles

As of this writing, if you consider around the top dozen headshot photographers found on Google results in the LA area, the average low price is $245 and the average high price is $670. With The Light Committee, the current low price is $125, and the highest session price is $225. With the quality and great service you get, this is quite good.

But it’s also what you get, which is more on average than others. For example, the session for $125 is 30 minutes, you can get up to two looks and it can be in-studio, outdoors, or both. You also get to select one shot as a favorite for retouching, plus all the non-retouched shots are also provided. What’s even better is as you upgrade sessions, what you get gets even sweeter. It makes The Light Committee arguably the most affordable headshot photographer in Los Angeles.

Headshots Made to Order for the Looks You Want Captured

If you are shopping around for a photographer, pay attention to their example headshots. This can be their corporate headshots or their acting headshots. You might notice that they are looking the same. The people change, their outfits are different, maybe even the backgrounds change sometimes. But you might start to see that how their faces are lit is usually very much alike. Same for how the backgrounds are lit. This is not technically wrong but it is a sign the photographer is limited, either in technical ability or by the number of resources they have for photo sessions – not enough quality lights, backgrounds, studio space, and so on. If you like their look regardless, this is okay but then do you also like their prices for the limitations they have?

With The Light Committee, the looks you want to achieve will be more possible than with just about any other photographer. This is because the studio has hundreds of combinations for possible backdrops, not to mention the outdoors. There are enough lighting options to create the most complex of scenes, and much more. So, the chances are much better that the essence of the looks you want will be realized.

I’m Rafael, Your Headshot Photographer

So, who is this guy writing all this stuff on this page? I’m Rafael, your photographer. I won’t bore you with a bunch of background information about me here, like photography, work, and college experience, but you can read all about it on my “meet the photographer” page if you want. Here I’ll just say I’ve been at the art and science of photography since high school when I discovered it by accident. I just needed to fill an elective class and ended up finding my lifelong passion. I hope it shows in the images you see here. I was born in Washington, D.C., though I barely remember it because I’ve been an Angeleno since I was around five years old. I love this city and what it has to offer, even with all its flaws and imperfections. But anyway, enough about me. This is about you.

Experience The Photography Studio

The Light Committee photography studio is located in charming Montrose, and I’m bragging about it. Location, location, location – it truly is everything. Where is Montrose? It is part of Glendale, which is a city between Burbank and Pasadena. Glendale is known for the Glendale Galleria and Americana at Brand. If you’re still not sure, this is around 12 miles north of downtown LA. Part of why this is a good location is the street the studio is on, Honolulu Ave. It is picturesque and provides a lot of good options for natural light sessions.

Inside the studio there are plenty of resources to make your session a great experience with great results. First, the comfort and convenience of it. There is ample seating to get comfortable and bottled spring water to make yourself at home. If needed, free Wi-Fi is an option. There is a hair and makeup room and station, and an in-studio restroom / changing room. Leave the rest up to me in terms of prepping the studio to make magic happen.

A Few Strong Testimonials

Getting the Ultimate Headshots in Los Angeles

In my humble opinion, what makes a really good headshot consists of four things, and what makes a spectacular headshot requires a fifth thing. For what makes a really good headshot, I’d like you to imagine if any one of these four things is missing, it drops you a letter grade. So, what are they?

First, in no order, is a commercial-grade camera and lens. The gear matters and a full-frame camera and premium lenses are paramount. Next is lighting. There is such a thing as a higher quality light when it comes to photography and the brands matter as much as with cameras and lenses. So does knowledge of how to work with sunlight. Next on the list is post-production because retouching can polish any image, even when the goal is keeping it as natural as possible like in a head shot. And of course, making the list is a capable photographer with the technical skill to work with a camera, lens, lighting, and post-production. If, say, a good camera and lens is missing, then the headshot drops from an A to a B, if two things are missing, a C, and so on.

So, what’s the fifth thing that makes a spectacular headshot? You! Bring you’re A game if you can. That means your best foot forward, from what you’ll wear to your attitude coming in. But, if you just need a really good headshot, that’s fine too. Leave it to me!
