I shot with Vanie in July and for the first time, I really love my pics! I've shot with a lot of photographers and I don't think I have ever gotten 'exactly' what I asked for, before Vanie.

I spoke with Vanie, told her what my agents wanted and what I needed and she was really good at "typing" me. She helped me decide what specific looks we were going to go after. She listened and gave me just what I asked for (which is not always the case with head shot photographers!)

She played director and totally got me out of my head. I love the overall look she achieves and definitely recommend her to anyone who wants real professional head shots!

I tried to write a review previously, yet it didn't save. This turned out to be a good thing since I can now include in my review that, in less than a week of submitting my materials and the fantastic headshot taken by Vanie, I've signed with an excellent commercial agenct. He commented on the exceptional headshot and mentioned it was part of my package that prompted him to contact me...

The experience of working with Vanie was fantastic: she has fun, but gets the work done with wonderful results. I can honestly say that her headshots are by far the best I've had taken so far. Her make-up assistance Mandy is also a pleasure as well; I highly recommend her for her talent and great attitude as well.

Thanks Vanie!

This photographer is nothing short of brilliant. Her energy and excitement floods into the session to create an environment perfect for her art. She goes the extra mile to insure the best possible pictures. Vaney Poyey exceeded my expectations and I recommend her to anyone who wants to take the stress off of finding a photographer who will give you the PERFECT shot.

Awesome,You will never find a photographer who acts as a director!!!!If any actor has taken pictures in the past, then they know what I mean. Most photographers will say, "Look sexy or look upset." Vanie gives you a scenerio and asks you the right questions, to get the reactions." That is the most important part of a picture is to get the reaction of what is going on inside the actor's soul. Correct?! your eyes are the center of your soul. Something like that... Actors know what the hell I'am talking about! Vanie is the only photographer intellient enough to know what to ask and then when to take the picture. She gives hell of a lot to the actor. I appreciated every question and every little trick to get my personality that will get me my role that I am perfect for. You will never find that in a photographer from the east coast to the west coast of photographers. Take myword for it. I have been doin this acting dance for 12 glorious years and have never found a photographer that really gave a damn about the actor, but VanieSincerely,Diane Louide Dalton

Headshots are my least favorite part of the acting process. Vanie made the experience fun, relaxed, and seamless. She knows how to capture the moment and you in your best light. I have so many different looks and shots to choose from too.Thanks Vanie!

I really enjoyed getting my headshots done by Vanie. She is very personable and professional. I was very comfortable in front of the camera, and I'm not usually. I would recommend any actor get their headshots done by Vanie.

Me neither. But that all changed after I shot with Vanie. I had been called into all of the wrong auditions because of my headshots. My old headshot screamed a certain look that I was never really going for. Worse, my "in-person" look combined with my acting made casting directors scratch their heads and wonder where the guy in the headshot was! I wanted to burn all of my pictures before I found Vanie Poyey Photography.

I've never had someone capture my personality in a frame like Vanie. The reviews that she gets for her work are right on. She will make you look like YOU on your best day all the while capturing the range of who YOU are. Look at the photos on her website - that's what you're going to get! Ask her how she does all of that with a camera and natural lighting because I couldn't figure it out. Best of all, she treats you like YOU are the client. Imagine that! Makeup was done by Gia - the two of them together will have you smiling, laughing, crying, and pretty much every other emotion that you'd want a casting director to see. The entire shoot should have had a soundtrack - I'm sure of it. I don't live in California, so I invested more than the typical actor by going to see her, but she was worth every penny.

The photos really capture me and the makeup was brilliant (ask for Gia!!!) So relaxed and comfortable while roleplaying to help get the best out of me... I can see the characters when I look at the photos and they are just... gorgeous. Everyone loves them!

I wouldn't go to anyone but Vanie Poyey for my headshots. She's professional, personable, and goes above and beyond to give you the most for your time and money. I always look forward to my sessions with Vanie and know every time that I will get shots that get me called in for work! She's the best!!

I had a BALL shooting with Vanie! The shoot was everything I had hoped for and more!! I could tell from the pictures on her website that something special was going on...every picture told a story. As an actor I am most comfortable when I have a character and a message to deliver. That's what Vanie does, she gives you a character or a situation, then lets you fill in the blanks with your own personality and creativity. You're so busy doing your acting assignment that you have no room in your thoughts for feeling self conscious....which is sure death for being on camera!Vanie's attention to detail is fantastic! Her input as to wardrobe, accessories, makeup, hair, location/background as well as body language/positioning all add up to a very unique and individualized, not to mention, "classy" product.Her makeup artist, Cole Saad, was fun, supportive and top notch in her work. She went on the locations with us, did touch-ups as needed, helped me put my hair in an "up-do" for a different look, and was a good "third eye" for Vanie.My Commercial Agent thought my pictures were "FANTASTIC" and while he had the 36 4"x6s" (all good!) that I had printed up, the Print Agent saw them and wanted to represent me as well!I love the CD she gave me with everything all ready for printing (4x6's) or uploading to the casting sites. I'm still looking forward to getting my 8x10's printed, but I'm sure that will be a pleasant experience too!!!

Vanie Poyey has been a great help to this actress. She takes her time so that you really get shots that will serve your career. I have paid a lot of money to other photographers just to be rushed along and posed awkwardly. Vanie was working WITH me! I felt that i got to be myself and i really showed in the shots i got from our session. Her makeup person was also fabulous. As a light skinned black woman i have had to do my own makeup before because the artist hired for the shoot has me looking like Micheal Jackson (and i don't mean the early years!). Thanks Vanie!

I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with Vanie Poyey Photography...I hadn't had an audition in almost 4 months when my new headshots were available for submission in mid-August. I have had around twenty auditions in the three months since I have been submitting my new photos including 6 for national commercials...In fact, the very first submission of my new commercial headshot landed me an audition for a national commercial. Obviously, this says all we actors want to hear, but I want to say more. Vanie asked questions about me and what I was looking for and what I was about and then she used that information to expertly direct me through the shoot in order to truly capture me on film...and guess what...SHE DID! I had a great time and was relaxed and free with myself and it came through in the pictures. Vanie's make-up artist, Gia Harris, was a pleasure to work with and did a great job as well. Vanie's assistant, Tanya, was very helpful and professional with all of the post-shoot production. I highly recommend Vanie Poyey Photography and I will use them again in the future.

I go out relentlessly on the shots Vanie has taken of me the past couple of years. I couldn't be happier! My agent couln't believe how many usable shots I got from my last shoot.

I initially went with Vanie, because of her online portfolio. Unlike other photographers whose portfolios contain the same exact same headshot over and over with different people in them, Vanie's was varied and distinct. It's obvious from the first look that she doesn't impose her will upon her clients. Vanie customizes her shots and sessions to each individual.

After actually *meeting* Vanie for the first time, I was even more impressed by several other things.

For one, she was great to "strategize" with regarding how to present myself and what wardrobe to use. She really has a amazing instinct for image and marketing.

But most importantly, *Vanie makes you comfortable in front of the camera*. And because of this, she gets you at your best moments.

I've met plenty of other actors that are like myself -- just because we are comfortable performing in front of a rolling camera doesn't mean that that translates over to working in front of a still camera. Vanie, a former actress herself, directs you with a very organic, easygoing, comfortable touch. Her sessions are fulfilling and *very* fun.

I've tried other photographers, and have always found myself going back to Vanie. Technically, her photography and post-production are absolutely par with the best, but it's the intangibles -- her insight, presentation, directing, her ability to organically draw your true character and capture it at the right moment -- that truly make her a special photographer.

There's a reason I've gotten so many shots with Vanie and sent other actor friends her way. Plus, she really seems to value her returning clients and always makes it worth their while.

As an Actor, I have always dreaded getting my headshots taken.
But my shoot with Vanie changed all that for me. She was really
great.

Right from the initial interview thru the shoot itself, and beyond, she
made whole experience very relaxing and actually enjoyable. I had
a good time and I think it shows in the pictures.

So, I would recomend Vanie to all looking for a good time and to get
good pictures.

My agents had a tough time going with what they wanted as there were so many great ones from which to choose. She's a real pro and has a complete understanding of how to get to the core of that person's essence. I highly recommend her.

I had a really good experience with Vanie. She was professional, while making the shoot comfortable and fun. Vanie has a way of taking very natural, candid shots while capturing very realistic expressions and actions. She has a unique way of putting you in a scene so that she captures many different "looks" and "characters." Most importantly, my headshots turned out great and have gotten me many auditions. I hightly recommend Vanie Poyey!

Anyone who has gotten headshots taken in the past knows how stressful an experience it can be. As an actor, I have a very limited budget. I'm willing to pay decent money for shots that'll get me work, but figuring out which photographer to go with can be a nightmare. Finding one who speaks the same language as you and has a high enough skill and talent level to get the shot when it presents itself is a difficult task.
As a young actor, my look and proper "category" has a changed a lot over the past few years and I've had to sit through sessions with a half-dozen different photographers.
I've never had as much fun or felt as at ease with a photographer as I did with Vanie. She fed me direction whenever I needed it and had the technique to produce a headshot that I'm excited about and that has been getting me results. She's awesome.

I was referred to Ms. Poyey by a close friend of mine and my talent agency and I couldn't have been happier about it.

Vaney is fast, professional, up tempo and excited about her work; which she does very well. She offered her expert help in my wardrobe choices and made me feel comfortable to open up in front of the camera, then we shot all of my looks in public locations on the street which really increased the energy in all my photos.

I was impressed by her turnaround rate (only a few days) and loved the computer options she offers; she resized all of my shots to the correct Pixel and Megabyte size for all the major acting websites so uploads were a breeze.

In a city stock full to the brim of photographers looking to garner to acting dollar, Vanie Poyey is an valuable choice.

I was in the market for new headshots and went to tons of sites looking to see what caught my eye. Not sure what it was, but I would know it when I saw it. Well... I saw it with Vanie!

The composition, the lighting, no standard poses (everybody's headshots was unique). Your personality really shows through with her shots. There's really nobody that shoots like her in the LA area. I liked the fact that she shoots till she gets what she's looking for.

Everything shot on location with natural lighting. You'll be surprised with what she can do with a simple parking garage, coffee shop or where ever you end up. It's always good to go in with an idea of what you want. But, having that idea combined with her expertise will only result in success.

Vanie is easy to work with, competitively, has a great eye for what you're looking for and turn-a-round time is really quick!

Vanie's headshots get me noticed. She captured everything I wanted to say about myself. She's got a great eye, makes you feel very comfortable in the shoot and 'directs' you into strong choices that helps bring out your true personality. Her detail and opinions are very valuable to me. I've used her for several different shoots and I'm constantly getting great feedback on my shots.

Bottom line is her shots help me get 'invited' into the game. I've recommended her to friends who've had the same positive experience.

She's awesome and you will not be disappointed!

Vanie Poyey is seriously the best photographer I've worked with. As an actor, I find it very hard to pose for still photography, but Vanie made it feel extremely comfortable. The photographs look natural and un-posed, and her use of color and backround are right on the money! The shoot was done in a timely manner, which was wonderful because it kept me from getting bored. My agent absolutely LOVED the pictures, and they have been getting a very good response from casting directors... What more could an actor want?

Had a great shoot with VP. She was gracious to meet with before the shoot as i was doing my due diligence on who to take pics with. Mrs. VP met my expectations. This was the first time that i took professional pics and it was a good experience.
I felt that it was a good deal with VP and i would recommend her to someone who is looking for a headshot photographer. All around this was a professional and fun environment.

I felt that it was a good deal with VP and i would recommend her to someone who is looking for a headshot photographer. All around this was a professional and fun environment.

Besides the fact that the photos are fantastic and that they were exactly what I needed, I also appreciated that everything was clearly explained to me.
All the steps both before and after the shoot were simplified for me.
They were extremely helpful and supportive.
Great work and wonderful people!

Vanie helped me every step of the way. she understood what I wanted out of my head shots and was experienced enough to know how to give me that. She helped me pick out the right outfits and found excellent locations. She directed me as we went to get different looks and always showed me the pictures after to make sure she was getting everything I needed. She even fended off a crazy crack head who decided he wanted to harass us while we were in Hollywood!

I was able to get an online proof sheet before the end of the day. All my proofs came out beautiful. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to choose just a few!

I would definitely recommend Vanie to any one in need of headshots.

I am extremely pleased with the level of professionalism and quality of the work. We had fun driving around for shoot locations. She's spunky and has great chemistry. She's also very honest. I will continue to use and refer Vanie Poyey.

Vanie is the ultimate professional. Her goal is simple...get it right. The quality of work speaks for itself, and she is in constant communication with both actor and agent/manager in regards to content and look. I will continue to recommend her very highly.

Vanie Poyey took incredible headshots of me and is the only photographer that has ever been able to actually capture my true personality. I have gotten more commercial auditions with these headshots than any other pictures I've used.

The entire process was relaxed and I had a great time working with her. If you are looking for an amazing photographer, I highly recommend you meet with Vanie.

Message from Vanie Poyey Photography

Hi there I'm Vanie and I've been a headshot photographer in LA for over ten years! When it comes to head shots, my focus is marketing and personality. Behind the camera, I'm hands on and direct you quite a bit and encourage interaction to bring out who you are! Each marketing look gets a unique background at a different location centered around the los angeles area. Expect to see a range of emotions from theatrical to commercial for every look! I shoot digitally giving you the opportunity to see every shot as we go. If you don't like something, we change it right away! Also I don't put a limit on how much I shoot, I shoot until I can edit down to the best images for each location. The biggest compliment I get over and over is that I am able to put my clients at ease. Please feel free to visit my site and see what your peers have to say on my testimonials page as well. Look forward to meeting you!
