I wasn’t succeeding with my old headshot until ‘Art of Headshots’. My first audition I landed a role in Pirates of the Caribbean, my second audition it was X-Files and my career started… Now I have a role in Altered Carbon and a career as a film actor.

I recently hired Fredau to do headshots for my business website and she was absolutely wonderful; I can’t sing her praises enough! It was instantly evident to me that Fredau knows her craft well (there is definitely no disputing that!) But, what really set Fredau apart for me (as someone who is NOT a fan of having her picture taken) was that her people skills and her ability to make her clients comfortable was OFF THE CHARTS. I will absolutely be using Fredau again the next time I need photos done and will be recommending her to everyone know! Thank-you again Fredau for your amazing work!

We are a small not-for-profit agency in Vancouver and were looking to find a friendly photographer (at a reasonable price) to capture our staff’s headshots for our website. As soon as I spoke with Carlos and Becky, it was clear that they put in an extra effort to get to know us each as individuals. They took their time during the shoot and really brought out our true selves in each photo. I would definitely recommend Art of Headshots to anyone in Vancouver looking for headshots. Carlos really delivers more than his photography skills! Thank you Carlos and Becky!

As a picky person, there have been very few occasions where I've had a picture of myself that I've liked; however, I'm extremely satisfied with the headshots that I received from Art of Headshots. Carlos is a fantastic photographer who makes you feel at ease and gets great natural looking (i.e. not stiff) shots, and then Becky works her magic to further improve upon the great shots with quality editing and touch-ups. It was like having the support of a glam-squad! I would highly recommend Art of Headshots.

The best headshot photography service in Greater Vancouver. Carlos is a master. Over the years I have seen many Realtor photos taken by Carlos and he always does a great job of catching that right moment. Recently a Realtor I know well had an updated shot taken by someone else his office had arranged with. It was mediocre at best. Art of Headshots offers a fair price for an exceptional end result. If you are in business get your most critical marketing piece done right.

Carlos was very welcoming and friendly to work with. I may be an actor but I hate having my picture taken and I'm always awkward in front of a still camera. But Carlos chatted with me and took me round to different locations and really spent time getting to know me and put me at my ease. I was really surprised by the way the shots turned out and my agent was very pleased. They offered a lovely range of looks and were so true to me that the my agent didn't even want his choices touched up. I highly recommend Carlos to anyone looking for quality and truth in their headshots or portrait.

I'm just thrilled by my recent actor's headshot session with Carlos at Art of Headshots in Vancouver! The ease of online booking, the great location, through the session itself -- which was a collaborative and happy experience -- the variety of images: everything was fantastic!

Carlos takes the time to listen to an individual's goals and concerns before taking a single shot, and so, in my case, he captured more depth and range than any photographer has before.

The proofs arrived quickly, my emails received responses almost immediately, and the cost was more than reasonable. Also, Carlos' assistant, Becky, worked a re-touching miracle on a shirt collar that had a mind of its own: amazing!

I think any actor will be super-satisfied with the experience and the end results. I will definitely use Carlos' and Becky's talents again.

I am glad that my first professional photograph was taken by Carlos. I never liked my photos being taken by but Carlos made the whole experience relaxing, personal, and fun. As a former counselor, he has a unique ability to bring out the best side of you by getting to know you and engaging you throughout the process. He is also very patient and took extra time with me to experiment different shots until I was completely satisfied. Carlos is more than a photographer, he is a director that brings out the movie star in you!

Skai Fowler

Hi Highly recommend Art of Headshots! I found Carlos to be both personable and very professional. He has the wonderful ability to be relaxed, comfortable and was able to draw out of me a variety of expressions - good for my acting portfolio! I am over the moon with the results. When I left the studio I knew magic had happened. Thank you Carlos and Becky.

Maricela Del Carmen

The reason why I chose Art of Headshots was more than evident the day of the shoot:
 
Carlos is genuine and professional and as a result his work is authentic; I wanted a photographer who could accurately capture someone's essence. Carlos talks to you, asks questions, and inquires about your goals so that he can give you the best photos possible. Becky was very helpful, and I appreciated her speed with extra edit requests. Thank you both so much!
 
I sincerely recommend Art of Headshots; I left the studio feeling inspired and am delighted with the photos.

Babak Zamani

Brilliant experience! Carlos made my portrait photography session such an excellent experience in Vancouver with his professionalism and friendliness. I highly recommend the Art of Headshots Vancouver Studio to anyone who wants fantastic headshots. Carlos spent time with me and got to know me in person, and after that, he portrayed my personality and career ideals into the headshots. Amazing job! Thanks.

Preety

Carlos is an incredible photographer. I thoroughly enjoyed my session with him. He was very accommodating and has a no questions asked policy on reshoots if needed. Definitely worth the money if you want beautiful headshots in Vancouver.

Sean Wicks

I cannot rave enough about my experience with ART OF THE HEADSHOTS. First off the session itself was relaxed and open. Carlos took my suggestions, had some himself and went out of his way to make me comfortable to get a natural shot. He suggested outside and while the photos looked great, some elements of my look didn't come out so well when re-viewed later (he shows you first on a tablet then they send a gallery later). I chose one, but they felt that I wasn't happy so THEY offered a re-shoot at no extra cost. They set it up quickly, it went fantastic and the second batch were beyond great. They didn't overly try to upsell me but did make offers for me to have additions (which I am likely to take since I am so happy).
Their packages are affordable, they are conveniently located and the quality is top-notch.

Susan Anoop

Carlos is an amazing photographer; he makes you feel comfortable and content. Getting your head shots taken at the Art of Headshots is truly a wonderful experience. Carlos takes the time and effort to bring out the best you in your photographs. I am very happy with my head shots.

J. B.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Carlos, with his extensive industry knowledge was very helpful and I believe brought the best out in me during the session. I'm very happy with my photo gallery results. Highly recommend!

Dhruv Narang

I can't recommend Arts of Headshots Studios highly enough. I recently had a professional headshot session with Carlos and was really impressed with their friendly and professional services. Carlos is a talented photographer, who loves to have conversation with the clients and brings out the best from his clients. Overall, I was highly satisfied with Carlo's services and the end result, which was according to my taste. Kudos to the entire team!

Lorenzo Daminato

I have experienced several head shot photographers over the years, including ones double the cost and Carlos and Becky delivered the best experience to date. With inside/outside options or both, I opted for in studio photos and the location was bright and perfect. Carlos technique is relaxing and comfortable and he finds a way to bring out a genuine smile in you. I would, and will highly recommend Carlos and will continue to use him in the future. I emptied their business card holder just so I can pass them along to colleagues.

Ronan Currid

I cant say enough positives about my experience with Art of headshots. Very professional and caring approach. I had my headshots done outside in a location of my choice. Carlos is a super talented photographer, great listener, very understanding of your needs, created a great experience and he really has great way of getting you into the right frame of mind for your shots. The shots came out great and the edits too. I would use their services again without hesitation. Thanks to all the team.

Y. Chen

Carlos is absolutely fantastic! He's best at capturing the moments of life, and his photos can tell a story of a person. He's very friendly and easy to get along with, so it makes the people more comfortable to be in front of his camera. I've worked with Carlos a number of times, and it's always been a great experience. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who wants great and memorable head-shots!

James P.

Carlos is a really fantastic photographer. Carlos' strength is his personality. He is a great conversationalist and knows how to get people talking. In getting you to share your thoughts and opinions you become more animated and relaxed. Being relaxed made it easy for him to capture the confidence that I was hoping to project in my headshot. I was really happy with the results and highly recommend his work.

Ron Parpara

Very professional and smooth experience all the way through with Carlos. He far exceeds expectations and ensures his clients are always happy. He has been a pleasure to deal with and being able to connect with the photographer is just as important as the quality of pictures they take and with Carlos he has the skill to do both very well.
 
I’ve worked with him for my individual headshots and also he shot our entire office as well. The finished product was excellent and this will help all of us in our line of work. I would not hestitate to recommend Carlos for any type of portrait photography!!

Olivia Szczepanski

Great company to worth with. Carlos is an amazing photographer that really brings out the best in you while taking your headshot. He is very personable and down to earth, and knows all the tips and tricks to produce the best final result. Thank you Becky for your editing and cooperation, she is very accommodating and so kind. Both amazing people seriously recommend them!!

Danielle Mountjoy

I don't normally leave reviews, but I would definitely recommend Art of Headshots - top notch customer service, followed by a great shooting experience and final product. My inquiry call and followup email were both returned within hours (even though it was after their working hours). I was working on a tight timeline and they did everything possible to accommodate me.
 
I originally decided to go with Art of Headshots because the photos on their website looked like real people and conveyed more personality compared to the other headshot companies I researched in Vancouver (which tended to looked more superficial and posed). I wanted something professional and natural. After meeting Carlos I understand why I was initially drawn to his work - he takes the time to get to know his clients, makes you feel comfortable, and then captures a shot that shows your true character. We took shooting breaks to review the photos and make sure there was a final product I was happy with (which is great for someone who doesn't feel naturally photogenic). I never felt rushed and was very happy with the result - I have a headshot that can be used for many purposes and will last for years. Thanks Carlos and Becky!

Colleen Brow

I needed to update my headshots for a theatre production and carefully did my research before choosing a photographer. Carlos had great reviews and I can see why. His number one priority is to make the client truly happy with the finished product. Half-way during the session, he shows you the photos so far - to ensure you're both on the same page. He's got wonderful ideas regarding poses, but is also open to the client's input. He's warm, personable...and has a fun and friendly way of conversing with you while snapping to draw out your authentic self. I had been sick with bronchitis prior to my shoot. Upon viewing the photos, I could see I wasn't completely healthy. Carlos was so generous and open to re-shooting the entire session a few weeks later (no extra charge) when I was completely healthy. Thanks Carlos!

Olga Orda

Carlos is an exceptional photographer. He worked tirelessly to create the ideal headshot for my company and I loved the final result.

 

Highly personable, very professional and warm, Carlos has a way of putting you at ease and bringing out the best in your character to create the specific look you are going for. As someone with high standards, I cannot recommend him highly enough.

 

Call Carlos, you will not be disappointed.

Sisi Tsukishima

Carlos is an amazing photographer with the talent of capturing the moments which are exactly what we would like to show in our professional headshots. Carlos also made my my first time headshots experience very comfortable and pleasant. I highly recommend him for anyone who wants wonderful professional headshots.

Tristan Miura

Art of Headshots is the most superb headshot studio I could have possibly imagined. Carlos is so much more than just a professional but he is a true master of his craft. He managed to get amazing photos that only someone with experience, and natural talent can take. I cannot describe how impressed I was with this studio and Carlos. Thank you so much. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for professionally done headshots to go to Art of Headshots.

Louise Lam

Lawyer

We hired Art of Headshots to take our headshots and group photos. We are a brand new law firm and wanted these photos for our website. We opted for the branding session which includes a meeting with the photographer prior to the photoshoot to discuss our brand, vision and audience, all of which to inform the style of photos, backgrounds etc. We had a wonderful experience working with our photographer. He was professional, experienced and knowledgeable.

 

We sat down and together created a planned and focused photoshoot that served our marketing purposes well. The photos are beautiful and the backgrounds he suggested turned out perfectly. We really liked his relaxed approach during the session. It helped us relax and look natural and authentic in the photos. Every now and then he asked us to close our eyes and think about the business we are building, the people we will be helping etc and then open our eyes. He would then capture our expression. It really brought out who we are. It was all in all the best experience I've had with business photography. I highly recommend their service and plan on asking them to do more photos for us in the future as the firm grows.

Virginia Mouland

I am a single Mom, to my 14 year old son. I was hesitant to get professional photos done because I am on a budget and I wanted to ensure they would be amazing. I did some research on Google and decided to give Carlos a call. During our conversion I asked, why I should choose him over another photographer. He took the time to explain his services and experience to me and told me that he would not be happy, until I was happy, even if I needed to do a re-shoot. He made me feel confident in him and continued to answer all my questions/concerns.
 
During the photo shoot, he asked my son what his hobbies/passions were - he developed a conversation to connect with my son and made him feel comfortable.
 
When the shoot was done, I felt like Carlos actually got to know us as people, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is hesitant.
 
The photos turned out amazing and Carlos kept true to his word - and even delivered much more than he initially promised.
 
He definitely goes above and beyond and I would guarantee that - on his behalf.....

Talia Volken

Carlos made this a really enjoyable experience for me and I'd recommend him to anyone who needs headshots done. More than just a picture; he really captures your energy in a shot. I loved working with him and his process of taking pictures really made me comfortable in front of the camera. Genuine, professional and extremely real; Carlos is the man to see. Thank you Carlos!

Careena Sharma

Art of Headshots was the best choice I made to get my professional headshots done. It was a pleasure working with Carlos, He's professional and a genius. Half of the time I was laughing so hard and he perfectly captured all my silly laughs. When I first walked in for this photoshoot, Carlos initiated a fun conversation about life, in those few minutes he understood what I wanted. Sure enough, I liked almost every picture of mine. In the end I couldn't decide which one to pick. Working with Carlos and the Art of Headshots was a phenomenal experience, one that I'll never forget.

Ulfa Lidinillah

The best photo shoot ever in my life, Carlos is such an amazing photographer with his special method. Love it and highly recommended!

Shirin Shahidi

Carlos is a terrific photographer who made sure I was comfortable with the photography and selection process throughout. I highly recommend the team for their professionalism and work.

Andjelija Radovic

Not all the professionals who need to have professional photos done - necessarily like to pose. But Carlos was such a pleasant surprize , with his approach he made the whole thing fun, easy and very comfortable. Besides, he's done amazing job, we really liked the photos!

Simona A.

Carlos is an incredibly talented photographer with a genuine passion for capturing your energy. I needed an updated photo for my LinkedIn profile. I was nervous to take professional photos but was pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. Prior to starting, he took the time to get to know me better and understand my goals. The photos came out very natural. A benefit of choosing The Art of Headshots is that your photos are fully guaranteed to your satisfaction. I was confident we would get the right shot in the first session. For a headshot that reflects your personality and professionalism, I would highly recommend Carlos.

Dandan Yang

I had the headshot session with Calos, and it was wonderful! He is a very caring photographer as he will always care about your mood during the session, and he is trying to bring up your best face expression. I would highly recommend him for headshot session.

Leon Wong

I definitely recommend anyone who hasn't gotten their headshots done to go to Art of Headshots! I know some people might worried about not feeling comfortable in front of the camera. However, Art of Headshots is totally different. Carlos is excellent and professional. He'll talk to you and make you feel like you're just talking to an old friend while he captures your best smile and emotion. The studio environment is comfortable and I actually had fun! The picture doesn't feel like you are smiling on purpose for the photo. It feels very natural. I was in a need to update all my social media account profile pics and I am glad I picked Carlos. Thank you Carlos and Becky for providing me with such great results!

Nour Chahwan

I had to update my professional headshot and was very nervous because of previous bad experiences. I am someone very difficult to photograph, I always close my eyes and am camera shy. In the past, photographers would get upset with me! When I voiced this concerned to Carlos he reassured me that he would never get upset, and it's true he was so patient. This experience was very pleasant and very different. Carlos takes the time to get to know you and you end up forgetting that you're actually taking photos. Halfway through the appointment, he checks with you if you like what's been done so far and will adjust accordingly. I felt really comfortable and I even had fun! Highly recommend Art of Headshots.
