Before & After

See the Before and After Headshot Page for more examples. Investing in a professional headshot can do wonders for work, dating, and most importantly – your self image.


“My organization has been using David’s photography services for company headshots. It’s been several years of excellent service. He’s professional, reliable, and consistent in the shots he provides for our website.”

“Worth it!! – David gives you a great product for a reasonable price! And the icing on the cake is that David makes you feel at home in his studio. I needed to update my headshot and I feel I got a number of good photos I can use.”

“Great Headshots – David has the ability to take amazing photos. I was very impressed with his skill level and his ability to make me feel comfortable and at ease. He captured many aspects of myself and certainly made me look better than I do in real-time! Highly recommend!”

“Great Photographer – I met David in 2002 when I needed my book updated. We ended up working together all these years since. I’ve referred many happy authors and musicians to him for their shots.”

“Total package! – Great photographer…..great photos…great personality….great price. need I say more?”

“Headshots will get you work! – David shot my best headshots ever–I just got a compliment from a casting director on them!–so I had to come here and plug his work. Thanks, David!”

“Awesome Headshots – After doing a major Google search, I was impressed by his website and rates. I did the $390 deal and now I have other photos that I use for Facebook and I got a few dates from these. Well worth it. He’s great to work with – patient and funny.”

“It was time for me to update my old headshot to a more modern NYC style. I hadn’t had them done in awhile and feel like I’m new to all this again- seems the whole process has changed overnight. David made everything very easy for me – scheduling the shoot, letting me know what you wear. Fun shoot.”

“Best Headshot at a good price! – I am a working actor who was looking for a good headshot photographer. The photographer’s website is very clear and easy to see – I liked his headshots; so, I emailed and booked a shoot. I couldn’t be happier as I was prepared to have to spend much more. Highly recommend and I’m telling all my friends.”

About the Photographer

With my 15 years of photo shooting experience comes quality and consistency which you won’t always get elsewhere. In NYC, I know you have many options to find the right photographer. It can be overwhelming in trying to decide. I’ve helped many people to launch a new business, land an acting role, find a date – all with having the confidence in putting their best image forward. Have a photo you’ll be proud to show.

You’ll get my continued enthusiasm and sincere desire to capture your best version of you. You can never go wrong with a little bit of wow-factor. My intention is to help you move ahead in your personal and/or professional life. It’s as simple as that.

My photography education started at the School of Photography at Orange Coast College in California, then SVA and NYU classes here in Manhattan. I continue to keep current with my shooting style and techniques so that you, the client, will have dynamic photos to use for personal and company headshots.

Before I became a New York City photographer, I worked in visual merchandising for Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills, CA. I now continue to utilize my clothing stylist skills in today’s photo shoots. I’ll consult with you (free of charge) as to what to wear.

My studio, David J Martin Photography, is conveniently located in the center of Midtown Manhattan. Steps away from most every subway line – between Herald Square, Bryant Park, Grand Central, and Penn Station.
