Whether it's headshots, commercial, fashion or fine arts, Armen Asadorian instinctually captures the truth and, when he wants to, spins it on its edge. He believes that art has no definition; it simply exists. But as such, art questions what we think we know, explores what is around us and touches the core of humanity in a place unreachable through language. His portraits exemplify this theory, liberating the inner essence of his subjects and rendering them profoundly accessible to the viewer.
Aspiring actors, working actors and celebrities agree that Alan Weissman has a talent for bringing out the best in his subjects. A master in lightening, he enhances his subject's uniqueness. Whether working with Charlize Theron, Morgan Freeman or a budding young actor, Alan strives for the same level of excellence. Widely recognized by casting directors, managers, and agents for capturing an actor's essence and range, Alan has the personality to playfully disarm his clients and make them feel they are not in front of a camera. This together with his technical gifts makes for an honest, open and authentic photo. He uses natural and studio lighting and never puts a time limit on his sessions. All clients see their images after each look on the computer to ensure they are looking their best and that always puts the client at ease.
The main thing I can tell you is that I am all about making your photo shoot a relaxed, fun, easy experience! I am an anti-drama queen, and I am very easy to work with. I love being involved in the process of making someone dreams come alive, so I will do whatever I can to make things work for you. I don't like overly worked, overly photo-shopped looks- my editing is minor and designed to get the best you- and is no additional charge. I work in natural light and have space to work from in Whittier as well as Marina Del Rey. And on top of that, I am a make-up artist! That will save money on having to bring someone else in, as I give discounts to anyone using both services. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at all!
Two words: vibrant personality. A shot that leaps off the page and demands interest - because it is, well, interesting - while also remaining simply and beautifully honest; a shot that will command the attention of agents and casting directors, kickstart your career (or revitalize it), and keep you from getting lost in an industry saturated with people as talented as you. Whether commercial or theatrical bound, an actor's headshot must be innovative and expressive, while remaining authentic to their essence. These are the shots I take. I have six years of experience, hundreds of referrals, and countless joyful testimony that say it all: get incredible headshots that will transform your career with Campbell Darkroom.
I grew up watching my father, a professional portrait, wedding & Vietnam photographer, create classically captivating photojournalistic imagery. Since then, I have developed my own ability to capture the true essence of a moment with a clean and classic vibe. With my portrait and editorial work, I try to co-create a relaxed and enjoyable environment that inspires a spontaneous collaboration between myself and my actors. My goal is to capture an authentic and intimate story within a single engaging photo.
Our mission is to craft headshots that market actors toward the casting that will help start long prosperous careers for them. Jonathan uses a combination of movement, direction and a relaxed atmosphere to bring out your personality and suggest casting through body language. Our shoot structure is highly individualized so that we can allow the personal attention and time necessary to do this. We're not a factory so there's absolutely no rushing and no next appointment "waiting in the wings." We’re quite proud of the fact that many of our clients go on to increase their auditions and subsequent bookings after shooting with us. Because of this track record we are on the lists of many of the industry's top agents, managers and casting directors.
