I just finished shooting with Armando. I needed shots for my business and I’m not used to being in front of the camera and he put me at ease. He was so great about reminding me to elongate my back and keep my chin up, knowing I wasn’t going to like a double chin shot! The lighting was perfect and captured the professional but warm feel I was going for

If you need a professional headshot, book an appointment with Armando at Zen Studios L.A. He's professional, makes you feel comfortable and coaches you through the process. Armando walks you through different poses and angles, and even allows you to change outfits and accessories. He delivered the array of photos to me within 24 hours and once I selected my top photo, he cleaned it up on Photoshop. I'm beyond thrilled with my photo and the entire experience working with Armando. I highly recommend working with him.

I was traveling to Los Angles on business and I needed corporate headshots. I contacted Zen studios because I saw they have many positive reviews and they really delivered. I have to say I'm not comfortable being in front of the camera but I immediately felt relax and the shoot went very smooth. Once I received my link to the gallery I was very happy with all of my headhsots. Zen studios truly exceeded my expectations.
