Lori Dorn ~ Headshots and portraits ~photography
For the past 30 years I've been a successful , working photographer in the Los Angeles area of California - specializing in headshots - especially for actors and models in hollywood - also singers -business executives - real estate agents - yoga instructors & writers ... many people need an attractive photo these days for a website whatever your profession - I'm happy to shoot that for you . I work with natural light and help to put you at ease so we can enjoy creating a lovely photo for you . We can shoot one look for $200 - or 2 looks for $350 which I recommend so we can give you a change of clothes and background and also most people get more comfortable as we shoot . Make-up is additional and if you need more looks or for me to come to your location we can discuss added cost for that . I am happy to answer any questions you might have . I am also a fine artist/painter and enjoy doing both - maybe its the gemini in me - I enjoy being a solitary artist - but also enjoy the connection and interaction of photographing people - that thrill has never gone away . If you'd like to see some of the celebrities I have photographed check this link www.loridorn.com/celebrities.html . below is a small example of some of my lovely clients . I have now relocated to the Santa Fe , New Mexico area and am available to shoot! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-770-4025
"Shooting with Lori was like shooting with an old friend. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and because of her relaxed energy, passion for photography, and expertise, she really captured my personality, as I see it, in the images. I had such a hard time choosing which one I liked best."
Lily Collins , actress
"Lori's eye allows an actor to reveal a gratifying image of oneself"
Kevin Tighe, actor
I have worked in this business all of my life- in new York, England and Los Angeles. I have worked as actress, talk show host, and public speaker. Lori Dorn has been, and will continue to be, my one and only photographer. We met when I first moved to Los Angeles many years ago. I was astounded at her photographs... Their versatility, and may I say durability. I mean, I did not have to get another set of shots for a very long while. Wow. Lori Dorn is a magical talent, a true artist, and knows how to capture the soul.
I am grateful to her. My new agent is grateful. And so are the producers of my new show.
WITH LOVE, AUDREY HOPE, actress -talk show host -television producer & healer to the stars
Lori Dorn has done headshots for me for the past 10 years. That in itself says a lot! There is no way I would return time and time again if I wasn't getting the results I wanted. (And if "I didn't look good...Lori wouldn't look good!")
Lori makes the photo session "process" a real pleasure...whether you are a newcomer to the industry or a seasoned veteran. Her ability to put you at ease comes out in the fine results she achieves time and time again. She's the best!!!
A big Lori Dorn fan...
"Lori is the best natural light photographer I've seen. Her head shots are art.”
Vincent Green , lawyer & author
“I had a great time during my photo shoot with Lori. She is meticulous, a miracle worker with lighting, and knows all the right tricks to make me look good. Plus, she made me feel comfortable in front of the camera and well cared for during our shoot. I love my pictures and the results speak volumes about Lori's professionalism and skills.”
Anh Chi Pham, Certified Yoga Teacher and Therapist
Lori Dorn is the best! Shooting good head shots is tricky, you need to be part artist and part therapist. Lori is great at both! She'll make you feel comfortable immediately; she has such a lovely, easygoing demeanor and an infectious laugh that'll make you feel right at home right off the bat. And Lori's artistic eye is as good as they come. She understands light, shadow and composition as well as anyone I've ever met. You end up with clean, clear shots that capture the essence of who you really are. Yep! Lori is the complete package. I've worked with her a lot and I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.
Keythe Farley , voice actor, casting director and voice director
Lori is an absolute joy to work with! She came highly recommended to me and I have used her for headshots more than once, simply because I have been so pleased with her beautiful work. Lori has an incredible eye and exquisite talent for shooting people. She makes a person come to life and truly shine in her photographs. Her unique and kind spirit helped put me at ease while shooting. She is a ton of fun to be around, easy to laugh with and share stories with. Lori truly is a beautiful, genuine, accommodating and talented human being. I look forward to working with her again someday soon. Johnelle Walker , actress & singer
Lori was an absolute delight to work with. After viewing her headshots online, I knew she would be the one to photograph me. She is a genius at natural light photography. The whole shoot was easy, fun, and she captured some of my favorite shots ever! Lori has the technique needed to produce a great image, but she also has the mind and heart of an artist, which shows in her work. She brought out the drama I needed for my operatic head shots.
Jamie Chamberlin , Opera Singer
" Lori is not only a lovely human being but an Artist to the core...over the years she has photographed me a few times and I also owned one of her terrific paintings but most importantly I can call this beauty of a soul,my friend".
