  • Executive Portrait Retouching is in the details

    I include Executive Portrait Retouching for my clients because my cameras can be cruel. High resolution digital cameras are great at showing every detail. Sometimes this is not great for portraits. I used myself as a model for this post because I could not find anybody else to model for it. Do I really look like that?

  • Irvine Executive Portrait

    CEO’s are busy people and the marketing department was hoping to get as much as we could given the limited time this gentleman had. A lot of communication with my contact prior to arriving helped. Of course I brought an assistant. Working fast, moving lights from location to location, composing, and dealing with the unexpected makes having a second set of eyes and hands mandatory on a shoot like this.

  • I needed a head shot taken for use with some professional publications. I was on a tight timeline. Andy was on time, quick, highly professional and the result was a high quality head shot that I was proud to use on the web and in printed publications. This was one of the best photography experiences I have had. Quick, professional, and such high quality work.   I would highly recommend Andy Templeton Photography.

  • Andy has generously served as the Share Our Selves event photographer since Winter 2008. His talent for capturing the excitement of an event in a photograph is amazing. His candid and staged guest photos have been used in press releases, event marketing materials, on our website, and in our quarterly newsletter. No matter what portion of an event we are trying to capture Andy has succeeded in providing us the highest quality photos. He is professional, punctual, creative, and flexible…. SOS is lucky to have him as a supporter. Thank you!

  • I needed a new professional portrait for my new marketing campaign. Since this would be a picture many people would see, it was important that it be right, not just good enough. I did my research, finding many photographers who specialize in photographing everything under the sun. I finally came across Andy’s work, and was immediately impressed. His photos had an attention to detail, and artistic flare that set it apart from the everyday professional portraits.

    I called Andy on a Friday, and was able to do the photo shoot the next day in my office. Before we began, we discussed the use of these photos and my target market. I felt comfortable relinquishing artistic control to Andy, who kept my marketing needs in the forefront of his focus during the project.

    We were able to complete the photo shoot very quickly. I was very surprised to receive a proof sheet in my email less than two hours later. Even more impressive to me was receiving the high quality finished product in my email less than 24 hours after our photo shoot.

    It was a pleasure working with a professional photographer like Andy. He understood my needs and the best way to effectively communicate my business through an image.

    I would recommend Andy to anyone!

  • I was recently looking for an updated professional photo.
    Googled OC Portrait Photographers, and browsed through his website.
    I liked the fact that Andy described his service in detail and that he comes to your office, or house and so I scheduled an appointment during lunch time at home.
    Andy was 15mins early and set up the lighting, he gave me advice what looked best we were done in about 25mins. Turnaround time was fast. 1day for proofs and 2 days for retouched photos. Overall a pleasant experience.

  • Working with Andy is a pleasure. He takes quality action shots and he provides Concordia Athletics with a great product. His shots both indoors and outdoors capture everything that a good action shot should, and we’ve heard nothing but positive comments from fans and student-athletes alike.

  • I would highly recommend Andy Templeton Photography for your corporate photography needs. Andy was professional, prepared, and timely. He arrived early to set up and brought all of the necessary equipment for a professional photo shoot. Andy made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and provided many photos for each employee to choose from. The corporate head shot package was truly a great investment for our company as Andy provided quality images, including requested retouching at an extremely fast turnaround. We are more than pleased with his work and look forward to using his services again in the future!

  • I could not be happier with the quality of photographs and the professional nature with which they were taken. Three days before our national conference was set to begin we had no photographer. Andy TempletonPhotography stepped in last minute with very little preparation and shot the entire three day event, capturing everything we asked as well as additional scenes that we will be using for years to come.

  • I’ve hired Andy Templeton to document a number of Pacific Symphony events and special concerts—such as our Gala, American Composers Festival, and Music Unwound series, which includes unusual activities and components. I always know I can count on Andy to capture every element of the experience with his keen eye and skillful use of the camera. He is a talented photographer and a real professional. Not only is he a pleasure to work with, but he gives 110 percent. He always shows up on time (in fact, early!) and stays until the job is completely done. I also really appreciate that he requires so little direction—and that I will have great photos quickly!

  • Our office was in need of some corporate headshots of our staff for social media and other marketing purposes. After researching various photographers in Orange County, I was most impressed with the professional portraits on Andy’s website portfolio. It was very convenient for Andy to come to our office and take our photographs so that we had minimal disruption from our work day. Andy was very friendly and made us, especially the ladies, feel very comfortable. The same-day turn-around on the proofs was amazing and once we made our selections, the final files came only a few days later. We were very happy with the quality of the retouching Andy did on our photographs and we are excited to use them. I will recommend Andy to any colleagues requiring photography services and will definitely call upon Andy for any future needs.

  • When my firm was looking for a new photographer to take head shots, I was lucky when I came across Andy’s website. We’ve been very happy that we chose him. He was very easy to work with, patient, professional and totally accommodating. He was flexible with all of the attorney’s tough schedules and even made multiple trips to our office. It was also nice to get the proofs back the same day so we could get the process started for our website. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone who needed a photographer. All around, a great experience!
