 "Elliott O'Donovan is the consummate professional. Who likes getting head shots?! Well, none of us did until we met Elliott. As soon as you meet him, you feel comfortable in his presence. He is smart, kind, funny and talented beyond his years! He engages you in a relaxed, easy going conversation while taking your shots, while also guiding and directing you so that he gets your absolute best picture. More importantly, he also finds a way to TRULY capture your spirit. Once we hired him to take our pics, every single agent on our team wanted to take new pics with him! He is the best at what he does. My only concern is that he will get so famous and successful that he won't have time for us. (and I suppose this review won't help my cause). Seriously, don't think twice about it. Hire him and you'll have pictures so good you won't recognize yourself;)"

"I can't recommend Elliott enough for your photography needs. He is by far one of the most talented I've worked with in the last 10 years. Even my husband (who hates getting his photo taken) said his head shot experience exceeded any expectations he had about getting them done. Elliott will be our go to guy for any photography needs in the future."

"I needed some new head shots and found Elliott through an Internet search. I was drawn to the exceptional quality of his portraits but  was also impressed with the editorial and commercial images on his website. Clearly, he has an amazing eye and is very talented. My only hesitation was whether I could live up to my end of the deal and relax enough during the session. His engaging demeanor and genuine approach put me at ease immediately and before I knew it, the session flew by and I had lots of great options  to choose from. I can't recommend Elliott enough, especially for people who aren't naturally comfortable in front of a camera. Best decision I ever made when it came to selecting my next (and now go-to)  head shot photographer."

"Elliott is incredibly talented, professional and very fun to work with! I had the best experience from start to finish. He instantly made me feel comfortable in front of the camera, not to mention the amazing background music, I couldn't be happier with the pictures. I would absolutely recommend Elliott to anybody looking for photography of the highest quality."

"I've spent most of my life thinking that I had a face for radio. That all changed when after my photo shoot with Elliott. He made me feel like a rockstar in front of the camera. Looking at my final shots completely changed my perspective because now I feel like I've got a face for the big screen."

"I just had head shots done by Elliott, and he must be a genius at lighting, because I look better in these pictures than the ones I had done 5 years ago. He's terrific at getting you to relax in front of the camera, and also has suggestions for poses to get what looks most natural (but might not feel like it at the time). Plus, he was really fast in getting the options to me to see. 
Elliott also took some shots of me and my business partner together. Those are always hard, because when one person looks great, the other one usually looks terrible. Not this time. We had a big selection of shots that we both loved.
My recommendation: call him now."

"I've had head shots done before, but I have never worked with someone who provided as much direction as Elliott. He helped me tease out a variety of different poses and emotions so that at the end I had several great shots to choose from.

Elliott is talented and down-to-earth to boot! Great photographer to work with..
