Testimonials – Headshot photography NJ / NYC

Whether an executive headshot or a more casual portrait, there are a number of reasons to get a great headshot of yourself. It could be to accompany an announcement about a new position or new company. It could be to accompany a web or print article.  Or your Linked-In profile shot needs an update. The aim with the headshot photo session is to give you photographs where your confidence and personality shines through. Approachable and friendly; perhaps with a bit of attitude. We’ll make you look good, as you should be.

The photo session is stress-free, and easy. I want you to love not only the photographs, but the experience as well. With that, here is some of the feedback and testimonials I’ve had from clients.

Please contact me for new headshots or business portraits that you might need.

Eric N:

Working with Neil was awesome! I needed Photos to pursue a career in Acting and Modeling. Although nervous about my shoot Neil was great, he made me feel comfortable and relaxed and we had a great session.

In 6 months I have been booked over 50 times on TV, Film and Commercials productions as a direct result of Neil’s work. Thank you Neil!

 


 

Amanda R:

I just wanted to tell you that since updating my LinkedIn profile to include the headshot that you took of me, I have had unprecedented traffic and outreach from recruiters. I’ve since started at a new workplace as a result of this. Thank you!

 


 

Carlos G:

Thank you for making my first time having my headshots taken a fun experience.Everything was 10 out of 10, and you were very professional and kind while taking my headshots. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

 


 

Colleen O:

Working with Neil was an absolute delight. This was my first time booking a session with a professional photographer, and he was responsive, happy to answer all of my questions, and made sure that I looked my best. His setup is top-notch, and after the photo session, I walked away with wonderful headshots. I would recommend him to anybody without a second thought.

 


 

Stephen H:

Neil, Thanks for your time yesterday. First reaction: these are really impressive! I know I should not sound so surprised, but I’ve known the subject a long time and he’s never looked so good!

 


 

Chris C:

If you want the best, look no further.  Neil van Niekerk is a leading authority in professional photography and his use of lighting is truly masterful.  More importantly, Neil has an easy personality that will make anyone comfortable in front of the camera.  Simply put, Neil’s photos are spectacular.

 


 

Greg W:

I was in need of some head shots, and I came across Neil’s work, so I gave him a call. He was able to fit me in that very same day and best of all, he had my edited photos back to me that night.

Having your pictures taken can be kind of awkward, but Neil is very easy going and made the process enjoyable. Most importantly, though, I was very pleased with the photos that he took. They all turned out great, and I had several different poses to chose from.

Overall, it was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend Neil for any of your photography needs.

 


 

Guido W:

I went to Neil for my business headshot because I was in the process of working on a website for my law firm, and had no professional pictures of myself. Neil took care of me and provided me with great, professional photos. It was actually fun to do the shoot, if you can believe it! You can check out the result on my website.

 


 

Susan E:

I was looking for a place to get a professional headshot for my website. I looked at all price points and decided on Neil van Niekerk because his work is great quality, and he had a 1 hour session with everything I needed included.

This was out of my comfort zone, but Neil is relaxed and nice to work with. My website looks great with the final photo!

 


 

Axel M:

I needed a professional picture of me for a conference and came across Neil’s website. He was very responsive and was available after my work hours. I usually don’t enjoy being photographed but Neil made it pretty painless, suggested different postures and light options and didn’t stop until I was happy. Best of all, I had the pictures available the next morning. I highly recommend Neil.

 


 

Kraig M. Dowd:

Neil is the consummate professional both in and out of the studio. When I needed a headshot for my website he was quick to respond to my inquiry. He put me at ease in what can be an uncomfortable setting for those of us who are not always eager about having our photos taken.

In a short time, Neil produced a wide array of high quality photos perfectly suited to my purposes. He followed up with speed and precision and utilized the latest technology (an easy to use, secure, web-based gallery and cloud storage) to help me make my selection of proofs, and provide me with the final images.

The greatest compliment to pay an artist and professional like Neil is to seek their services again and recommend them to others. I intend to do both.

 


 

Scott T:

Neil is a great photographer to work with. He has sophisticated equipment but makes keeps it pretty simple for the client. He has a great studio. I got to sit with him after he did my headshots, manually go through, and select the top 3 options and go over the slight edits.

The turn-around time was super fast. Very happy with how they turned out. Thanks, Neil!
