"As a professional performer as well as a personal coach of 30 years, I have encountered many photographers. Alex Kaplan has a wonderful personal style that promotes relaxation for an artist in front of the camera. He captures that, "state of being", so important for any "living" display of a personality. He does this creating an atmosphere during studio and location shooting, that produces composite results of great variety. This offers a great number of wonderfully selectable images to choose from. Alex Kaplan's lighting and technical skills are among the top professionals in the business."

Hi Alex,

Thanks again for the fast, pleasant, and professional work.

I have nothing but good things to say about Alex and his work. I'm by far not a photogenic person, but Alex captured me with professional photos that made me look my best.

Hi Alex,

I just wanted to thank you on behalf of our whole team for your fabulous work! Not only did everyone love their headshots, but all 4 people reported that you were extremely professional and easy to work with. We were all amazed at the speed in which you turned around the shots. And, we were easily able to make our deadline with the website developer. Thanks for everything. We will happily send you additional employees.

Thanks much,

Hey Alex, I hope you are doing well, i would just like to say how much the headshots you have taken for me have helped me. In the past year and a half I have gotten much seen much more and have actually started getting Professional Regional Theater work partly because of the headshots you have taken for me. I hope you are doing well, and if you interested in seeing some of what I have done, check out the site for the last Regional Theater i worked for at http://www.tristateactorstheater.org/12NCAST.htm

all the best,

FYI- I cannot tell you how many people tell me the only reason they contacted me first before any other broker is because the picture looks so great!

- Fanny Montalvo - Real Estate Agent

Let me say that it was a pleasure working with you..I will definitely do the Photo credit thing and will also recommend you to all my friends who are looking to get good quality photos taken for practically any occasion .
I hope we will work again in the future sometime...you are definitely the one person I would go to again for any photo needs/Headshots/Pictures..


 I suggest that you emphasize your friendly, laid-back approach. Guys like me donít know what to expect from photographers. You were very personable and made me feel comfortable. Thatís a benefit that some of your competitors may not be able to offer.
