I desperately needed head shots and having never modeled before I was a little nervous about the whole process. As soon as I met Eric I knew everything would turn out great. Not only did Eric take beautiful photos but he made the process seamless and fun. He’s really easy to work with, very professional, extremely laid back, creative, and most importantly knowledgeable. He has a great eye and he can style each setting to match what you want. I’d recommend Eric to everyone and I plan on using him again in the future.
A buddy of mine had just finished a headshot session, asked for my feedback on the looks he would use and I was blown away. I was like, “dude!!! You could use any of these, they’re great and show the real you so well.” Needing new shots myself I inquired who the photographer was and he told me it was this “dope dude” Eric Roy. That was all I needed. As an actor I hate taking the time to search new photographers and price compare and all that. I saw a great product in my buddy’s session, and pulled the trigger and gave Eric a call ASAP. His assistant Lisa was extremely prompt in getting back to me and setting a shoot up, even worked with me when I had an issue and had to reschedule. Easy peezyGot to Eric’s studio a little before our scheduled time and it quickly became evident that all I had heard about this guy was accurate and then some. Super chill, laid back guy that really works with you and for you. He’s an actor himself, and he understands what we need in this business. Not just collecting a check and not giving a damn about you like some photographers I’ve worked with. We shot till collectively we felt we found greatness in each look. I was always involved in the process and never once meant to feel like I was rushed or bothering him; as some photogs will do. He constantly was tweaking lighting and camera settings and asking my input on the shots that appeared instantaneously on his computer. Dude is a straight pro; from a multitude of camera equipment, lighting, backdrops, on the fly ideas, to his overall genuine demeanor, I would (and did) recommend Eric to any actor out there needing headshots. Jump to finished product, Eric swiftly sent me a link to my session and I was blown away. Not one who enjoys checking themselves out, but I had to take a step back and be like, “Damn son, you looking good.” Picked my favorites, of which there were many, fired them off to my reps and they were blown away as well. My manager and theatrical agent said, and I quote, “ It’s about damned time,” meaning someone finally captured the real me in a session. I’ve spent lots of money to no avail on headhshots, striving to get that one or two great shots to market myself appropriately with. Eric saved the day.Fast forward a month and a half after our session, I booked a national commercial with the new headshots!!! I’m getting called into casting offices more. Amazing what one headshot session has done for me, and I have Eric to thank for that. Go shoot with this dude!!!!
Hi! I’m Allie Schulz, singer, actress, and song writer. Eric photographed me and made it the most easy and creative headshot session I’d ever experienced. He somehow allowed me to forget about the product/result I knew I needed from the session (a marketable shot of me that my agents could use to book me jobs!) and instead created such a comfortable environment where I could hang out in the present moment, laugh, relax, and be myself in front of the camera. As a result, he captured me in my most natural state and provided me a headshot which has both gotten me into tons of rooms here in LA (of casting directors I’d never met since I’m a recent NY transplant) and booked me print jobs strait away directly from the photo. Thanks, Eric!
It was a pleasure shooting with Eric. He creates a completely collaborative environment that is tailored to each individual. There is never the sense that you are being placed into some “stock” look, but working towards an atmosphere that allows you’re individuality to come out. I got exactly what I didn’t know I wanted.
I so enjoyed shooting with Eric Michael Roy. He took his time and helped me get the shots I needed. The final shots are great and really pop! I was very comfortable with Eric and that shows through the lens! I’ve gotten wonderful feedback from casting and agents. Thank you so much!
My first session with Eric was honestly just a lot of fun. He is very relaxed and professional. Eric wants to get the best shots out of you, he blasts whatever music you want and makes it super comfortable. The studio is awesome, as it allows for tons of natural light. I will be returning to Eric for my next sessions.
Love working with Eric. He has amazing energy and makes sure that you don’t leave until you’re happy. Plus, I love that you’re able to see the photos on a screen while he’s shooting you. I will definitely be back!
Studio Roy is amazing! I did a joint headshot session with my best friend and we were so relaxed and laughing the whole time. We both got some fantastic shots out of it. They even let us play music during our shoot! Such a skilled photographer and an all-around good dude. Would definitely refer my friends to him. 10/10
