I just did a shoot with Geoffrey and it was an OUTSTANDING experience. Geoffrey has a unique way of approaching the session. He is focused and intentional while open to where the actor is headed organically. He has a magical (yes, I said it...I don't know what else to call it) way of bringing forth levels of specificity that revealed more than your standard headshot.

The shots we got are unlike any shots I've ever taken. Each one is specific beyond the general "type" or "look" I was going for. Having been a film producer for 7 years, I've seen thousands of actor headshots, and these shots are some of the most precise, specific, and professional I've seen. If you're looking for something specific, professional, and marketable, do not hesitate--Geoffrey is exactly what you're looking for.

Working with Geoffrey is incredible. At first, the headshot process seemed daunting, but it definitely paid off. The photos I have now are absolutely stunning and I feel they truly represent me as an artist and will continue to for some years to come. Geoffrey helped guide me to put a character and life into the photos that I feel truly comes across.

I used one of the headshots from the shoot to submit to colleges and I would like to think that professionalism in my portfolio is what put me in the next level of student theatre applicants. I had such a wonderful time working with Geoffrey. I suppose the only downside to the whole process is having to choose a few photos from the hundreds of fabulous ones.

Geoffrey is an incredible photographer who works alongside you to create the vision for your branding. This is my first time working with him, but the way in which he directs his sessions makes you feel like you've known him for a long time. My headshots before this were terrible!

Now I truly understand what a PHENOMENAL headshot photographer can do. We played with characters, breathed life into them, and came out with amazing shots! You, my friend, have just found your new headshot photographer - don't go anywhere else if you want quality, life-bearing, brand-specific headshots!

I just shot with Geoffrey last week and reviewed the raw photos with him quickly after and am so psyched to get the retouched images back. I'm inexplicably satisfied with how the photos have turned out even before they've been finished.

The magic Geoffrey is able to capture is due to his uncanny ability to make you feel comfortable, but also seamlessly direct you to that perfect state where you are literally in the moment as if it was a still from filming on set. He has a gift people. I couldn't be happier with the preliminary photos and can't wait to post the final images!

I was busy! I didn't have time to do the type of deep research I normally do. I needed new pictures of myself for business and I needed them ASAP. I live in Los Angeles so I ran some searches like, Best Headshot Photographer in LA, Professional Headshots, Actor Headshots and so on. Geoffrey Donne Photography appeared in all my queries so I checked him out and I got lucky! Really lucky.

I knew from looking at Geoffrey's portfolio how talented he was. What I did not anticipate was how inspirational our shoot would be. I am coming back to the business after having been out of it for several years. Geoffrey seemed to be reading my mind in regards to all the questions I had whirling around in my thoughts.

Read More

He really focused the shoot with the precise eye of a director, soliciting some very specific images, and hence, getting great shots. He clearly loves people and has such an incredibly positive vibe that I instantly felt comfortable, relaxed and excited to be there. His retouching is wonderful without going too far. I really can't speak highly enough of his talent, his approach, and his sincere care for creating an inspiring experience. It's not often I meet someone who is clearly living every inch of life. Thankfully, it's infectious.

Geoffrey is a genius. We came to him with ideas for our band photo shoot, and he came right back at us with ideas that were even better, but in the exact same vein as our vision.

Read More

He perfectly executed EVERYTHING - from communication, to planning, to organizing costumes, hair and makeup, and the location - he did an incredible job, and I feel lucky to have seen a master who takes his art seriously and personally in action. Taking the photos was the most easygoing, enjoyable experiences I've ever had. He knew what he wanted, he talked us through when we weren't quite portraying the right emotion, and then he captured the most beautiful photos I've ever seen myself in. I'm downright in awe, and recommend him to anyone who wants to look at themselves and say, "wow. I AM good looking!"

Shooting with Geoffrey was a blast! This was my first time having professional photos done. I went in that morning with a tummy ache from the anxiety. Right away Geoffrey put me at ease.

Read More

Before jumping into the shoot, he sits down with you and takes a bit of time to just chat and get to know one another. Behind the camera, he gives very clear direction and has a really calming, mellow vibe. We ended up having a lot of fun and honestly, the only hard part was combing through all the great shots to pick the best ones. He doesn't miss!

Geoffrey was such a pleasure to work with and very creative.

When we pursue any career in the city of LA many times we forget to help those starting out or restarting. Geoffrey is not just a talented photographer, but a very unique and very caring human being who brings out the strongest thoughts with his clients, as he captures it all through the lens of his camera.


Paul Bradley

Geoffrey, you made some serious magic happen in that lens of yours. The shots came out better than I had imagined, and I am 100% happy with the result!

As a director and Director of Photography, you have an eye for seeing the inner performance in each subject and have the skills to bring it out of them. I know you will go far in this field. Thank you and congrats!

Tony Potter

Geoffrey's work is superb. His expertise, technical skill, and visual composition go far beyond the traditional "headshot."

Read More

He is also amazing to work with. He takes time and sees the you that you want to present to the world and magically captures that with the camera.

Michael Sandy

Geoffrey has a great eye for the shot. He creates an environment where you are comfortable, and at ease in front of the camera.

He knows how to ask the right questions, to get you into the headspace, so you can do your best work. A classy, open, warm and pleasant gentleman, great experience.

It has been a pleasure and honor to have head shots done buy such a great man, he is also a great source of encouragement, and truth, if you got what it takes to make it he will see it and make you a true believer.

Robbie Allen

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I've never had good headshots. Ok ones that got me by, but never that one that I thought could actually get me work. After about 20 min of our first session I had about 20 shots that blew my other headshots outta the water. Relaxing and easy to work with, you WILL get the headshot you've always needed from Geoffrey.

Leesa Arreguin

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I've had the opportunity to shoot with Geoffrey twice now. Lucky me! My experiences have been remarkably professional, yet fun. He was able to capture the looks I was looking and beyond that he made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Thank you Geoffrey Donne Photography!


Maxine Sonnenburg

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nobody has ever taken a good picture of me until now. The only good photos were ones that somehow didn't really look like me. But that's all in the past. Geoffrey accepted the challenge and did an amazing photo session. The pictures are all wonderful... and they look like me! And we had a delightful time.

Adam Sheck

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had the most incredible and fun experience during my photo shoot with Geoffrey Donne. He brought out the best in me and I'm a guy who absolutely HATES being photographed. Geoffrey made me a believer. As a psychologist and couples counselor I am recommending him to all of my colleagues as well as anyone that wants someone to evoke that je ne sais quoi.

Carol Potter

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Excellent! What a pleasure to work with. Geoffrey is so talented and creative (and he put in the extra effort to be truly prepared), he really put me at ease so that I was able to do the work that I needed to get the shots that we both wanted. Our shoot was a truly collaborative experience between myself, Geoffrey, and the wonderful makeup/hair artist he provided. Fun and fabulous, and great shots!


Brian Silverman

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Geoffrey is absolutely outstanding. Sitting down prior to the shoot he takes the time and interest to identify the essence of the actor and captures that essence in the eyes.

Read More

Never does he take his focus off of the purpose of the headshot - to make the decision maker stop and say, "There's something singular going on here. Bring this person in."At the same time he creates an artistic space of freedom, vulnerability and playfulness. The result is a richly satisfying session and a vibrant product. Thank you, Geoffrey, for your time, your skill, your eye, your presence and your work.

Dave Abbitt

I'm not a model or an actor, and have a much easier time finding my comfort zone behind the camera rather than in front of the lens. Geoffrey made it so easy to be comfortable.

Read More

His terrific ability to pose his subject and coax the most flattering angles and subtleties without making things seem forced in the moment is remarkable. He is able to see things about people and translate them with his camera; things that many other photographers would just miss - maybe because this is just a business to them. With Geoffrey, it feels personal, and that makes all the difference.

As an actor who has been more behind the camera for the last decade and a half, I had been continuing to use shots that were taken nearly eight years ago for the occasional acting job - great shots, but not me anymore.

pon deciding to focus once again on juggling an acting career in with my other work, I had begun to look for a photographer. I have known Geoffrey Donne for the better part of 20 years. He is an amazingly talented guy - an accomplished actor and director himself - he is able to channel those impressive skill sets to his photography in a way that is rare among the throngs of headshot photographers in this industry. The most impressive thing to me was that he captured ME... not me the actor, not me playing at something... but ME... my essence - the thoughts, the emotions, the life behind the eyes. He directed in a way that allowed me to be natural, and comfortable, and that shows in the photos. He takes his time, never rushes you and consistently strives to make sure that you are bringing out your best. And it's real...that's what is so impressive to me. I can look at those pictures (and I'm hard on myself) and say... that is me.. Not just what I look like... but who I AM.. .whether we were gearing the shots toward the world weary detective, the everyman or guy next store or the guy who could snap at any moment... Geoffrey just had a subtle but VERY effective way of bringing that out in me and having it translate in spades to the picture. My manager loves the pictures and within just a couple of days of getting the shots, I had already booked 3 auditions. The only bad thing about a photo shoot with Geoffrey Donne is that you'll have a hard time picking which ones to use because you will have an wealth of choices.

I'd long ago given up on ever seeing a photograph of myself that I liked. And then I met Geoffrey Donne. He is one of those people you will never forget meeting.

Read More

Brimming with enthusiasm, joie de vivre and a wicked sense of humor, the first thing you understand is that you are in the safe hands of a dedicated professional with an abundance of creativity and a very keen eye. It's a rare thing to find a photographer who sees the best you and is able to capture that and make it fun at the same time. He showed me the first few shots and it was obvious he knew what he was about - from there on, it was easy to relax and take whatever direction he gave, because I just knew we were going to end up with amazing shots. We ended up with at least 12 brilliant shots, all of them capturing different aspects of my personality. Within 1 week, I'd bagged filmwork with the BBC. You be the judge! I think this man may just be borderline genius and I'd strongly recommend you book him now, because it won't be too long before he's going to be booked up for months in advance.

Geoffrey Donne provides a unique and unrivaled opportunity for actors or anyone else in need of a picture that actually bears a stunning resemblance to the subject.

ith years of experience in the worlds of theatre, television, and film, Geoffrey brings his full personality and experience to every frame, using light, composition, and a keen eye for marketability to capture his subjects at their most truthful, most intimate, and most professionally appealing. Geoffrey crafts the entire photography experience around meeting the needs of his subject while also allowing his own creativity and genius as a photographer and artist to contribute to pictures that blossom as a collaboration, as opposed to the far more typical one-sided exposition of style or feeling. The pictures I took with Geoffrey are pictures I have waited 29 years to see - me, all of me, presented to the viewer without artifice, schmaltz, or rigidity. I have paid hundreds of dollars and spent at least six days of my life trying to get just one of these pictures, and Geoffrey was able to give me too many astounding options to choose from in one afternoon. In addition to taking the pictures, providing his own extremely practical insight, and making the experience easy and fun, Geoffrey also provides expert retouching and digital copies of everything, rendering my choice of which unbelievably good headshot to use even more difficult. As an actor, I cannot recommend Geoffrey highly, profusely, or pragmatically enough. Headshots with Geoffrey Donne Photography are not only one of the soundest investments in my career, they have have also been one of the most exciting and energizing experiences in my artistic life. It would be best to work with him soon, before his price matches his market value.
