A Chat with JcB Photo
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We specialize in capturing you—the actor/performer—at your very best while still looking like you. There’s nothing worse than getting to your audition and annoying casting with a shot that isn’t you. We strive to create characters within your shots to set you apart from the stack on their desk.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I’m an actor too, with a background in photography and filmmaking. I started by shooting my actor friends’ headshots and realized that, beyond my technical knowledge in photography, I had a knack for achieving something different in headshots—a spark in their eye that screams character.
What do you love most about your job?
I love getting that call for another shoot. There are a zillion headshot photographers in LA—many of them very good while still affordable—but these people are calling me. Also, despite what anyone says, we’re all still learning. With everyone I shoot, I always like to give some new idea a try.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Like I said, “I’ll be back”, is the best thing you can ever hear, and I’m fortunate to hear that often. Also, I like being affordable. Some people come to me for just an extra look in their portfolio and come away with something unexpected: a whole new portfolio.
