My expectations were high and Gareth delivered

After having had the conversation with Gareth the day before the shoot, my expectations were higher than the usual photo shoot.

So during the session, I felt really comfortable and at ease with the whole process. I was able to see my photos being taken in real time on a large screen so I had a better idea of how to pose and what angles he was getting

This is the first time I saw myself and the roles I would like to see myself in

Had a check-in convo with my manager Steven Buchsbaum who kindly stated (not in his words) that I need to level up on my headshots. It didn’t have that “glow” he noticed when he talked to me in person.

I will tell you this, I have never loved my headshots. I have had nice headshots. “Pretty”, “Profesh”, “Cute” whatever you want to call it but one thing I know, they didn’t look like me.

Headshots have always been this expensive corny corporate sort of thing that we all have to invest in and if you make a wrong choice your screwed until you can afford more. This is the first time I saw myself and the roles I would like to see myself in. That’s a beautiful thing. I want to be called in for the captain of the ship for Star Wars or Star Trek, a boxer, a teacher, zen goddess, mental health practitioner, an artist, on adventures to magical lands, or a bad ass marvel super shero and beyond.  Maria Atubiga beat my face to the gawds on PERIODT and Gareth is the man! He showed me the way and I am never going back.

As I continue to put my hat in the ring, I want to make sure I put my best foot forward. This storytelling life is challenging. For me, at this point in my career it’s about intentionality and manifestation of what is for me. Period! Love and light! The journey. For all my storytellers I am sending #love to you because I know it’s hard out here. Don’t give up though.

Love, J

I felt comfortable like I could be myself

I was truly expecting to only get one good look. However, I knew what I wanted and I just wanted to enjoy myself.

Gareth and Titania made me felt comfortable like I could be myself.

Alicia Mitchell-Mangual

I felt listened to, comfortable and mostly I felt understood!

To say I felt comfortable and supported during my headshot session is an understatement! Gareth and Titania were incredibly kind and warm. It was very easy to bring my best self forward and all the shots are Excellent! Can’t wait till I mature and need headshots again!!!

I hadn’t done a headshot shoot since I was a sophomore in college! So I didn’t really have expectations. Just excitement and a little bit of nerves, and then during the session I felt supported and Encouraged! I felt listened to and comfortable and mostly I felt understood! Those nerves went away almost immediately 😁

Marcus Smith

It was the best session ever

I just wanted to get a few usable pics for IMDB or a headshot for commercial/tv, instead, it ended up being the best session ever.

Ben Cherry

The session was fast, fun, and organized

I wanted to get 1 great headshot, what I received were dozens, plus the session was fast, fun, and organized.

Peter Waluk

You honoured my comfort level

I wanted to get some nice new headshots taken. Having the consultation beforehand gave me a very positive expectation as well as following @headshotsbygareth on instagram.

My intentions were to come in confidently and ready to get my photo taken, but I definitely was feeling really camera shy more than anything going in, but I felt super comfortable working with you and Titania. You are so disarming and encouraged me to be a part of the session every step of the way. I really appreciated how you honoured my comfort level when it came to clothing and backdrops.

The world was delivered on a silver platter

I simply expected the world, and it was delivered on a silver platter by the team. I had no reservations, but was hoping for the best, and excited to meet Gareth!

During the session I felt relaxed, comfortable, and full of energy

Alisar Tabet

Familia Noyes

Gareth and Titania aren’t just people doing a shoot, they’re like FAMILY

Gareth is TOP NOTCH when it comes to professional headshots! His professionalism and warmth will have you feeling like the STAR you truly are! Seeing the results of our shoot I felt more comfortable and I see myself more on-screen and on TV than I ever did before.

I didn’t know what to expect going into the session really. With whoever you work with, you want to make sure you can trust them and that there are good vibes to help things flow. The consultation was truly great because Gareth inspired me to really look into and understand what Pinterest was. I went in more prepared than I would have if we didn’t have that consultation,

I felt so comfortable and free! Gareth and Titania didn’t come off as just people doing a shoot, they came off like FAMILY. Feeling safe for something as vulnerable as taking photos is tied at #! with taking great images, Which was executed beautifully and flawlessly.

HIGHLY recommended!

Skye Washington

I can’t say enough good things about you

An unforgettable, beautiful experience I will cherish forever. Unsure of what to expect going in, pleasantly surprised, well worth it and highly recommend. Gareth is experienced and Titania, his creative arm, is a breath of fresh air – Thank you and keep up the good work!!!

I can’t say enough good things about you and your process, your communications, finished product. You are a STAR. Your attention to detail and diligence to make the best out of every situation comes across in your photography. I felt Happy, excited, nervous, I had to work on letting go and being present, enjoy the moment. I feel exhilarated, it was more challenging than originally thought, by the end, I was relaxed enough and it reflected on my pics. Gareth and the team exceeded my expectations!

Ruby Burdiez

Gareth and Titania are professional and talented

Before walking in, I expected to find a backdrop and lighting combo that complimented my look. And to get a few shots that I could potentially use for acting, and if we had time: for an editing job.

I got so much more, it was Great! It was so much fun. Gareth and Titania are professional and talented.

Lillian Berger

I felt like a superstar!

Having met Gareth & Titania on facetime, I was expecting a relaxed vibe and some fabulous photos! I simply felt like a superstar, they made me feel that way.

Gareth has an innate ability to pull out your true inner self

Gareth is a super professional photographer with the innate ability to pull out your true inner self! He is also adamant that the client feels satisfied with every aspect of the photoshoot. The way his studio is set up you can see the shots in real-time and my photo session was super comfortable with a constant line of communication. We could see right away what was working and what wasn’t. His extensive amount of lighting, backdrops, and props assist greatly in getting the perfect shot. I was able to accomplish getting headshots and promo shots in the same shoot, so he is super efficient with his time and makes it so little retouching is needed in post. Before and after the shoot was spectacular as well, with Gareth providing prompt emails and thorough contracts, so no one is left in the dark. I’d highly recommend him to all my friends and colleagues!

I’ll bring more Brazilian coffee, pinky promise

I can’t stress enough how much I recommend Gareth’s work. The whole experience, from the first meeting to receiving the final results, was flawless. Gareth is incredibly kind, talented and instantaneously makes you feel at ease. Titania was the best too, so nice and fun (and she might headbang to Ozzy along with you, which is awesome). I enjoyed the whole process so much, had lots of fun and I’d love to work with them anytime – I’ll bring Brazilian coffee, pinky promise. Thank you so much! 10/10 recommended.

Because of our pre-shot consultation, I knew I was going into a session with thoughtful and competent professionals, which was AWESOME! I had the best time with Gareth and Titania! They were so kind and welcoming and made me laugh and so at ease.
