What Our Headshots Clients Have To Say
✭✭✭✭✭ “I have had the pleasure of working with some of the best photographers in the United States. Working as creative director with a major photographic equipment manufacturer, I directed photo shoots of all types: Portraiture, architectural, action, special effects, wildlife, scenic, etc. Mark ranks among the best of them. He made me comfortable in his studio and provided me with a broad range of selections. However, probably the highest praise I can offer is that he made me look good. Now, that’s an accomplishment. Being overweight, he adjusted the light to best advantage. Indeed, his use of light is the hallmark of a great photographer.” Headshot Reviews by Jack Durish, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark is a consummate professional, a highly skilled and talented artist who can really make a portrait look great. I am very happy with the work Mark recently did for me and if needed would surely know where to go to get fine portrait work or head shots.” Headshot Reviews by Erik Bakker, Mission Viejo, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Simply outstanding work! Mark is an exceptional photographer! I just love my headshots! He gave such wonderful service and he has such a gifted talent ! Just the best! Thanks mark for everything! I will be using you in the future and recommending you to all my family, friends, and co-workers!” Headshot Reviews by Liz B., Irvine, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark is a tremendous artist, and, from what I could glean in my session with him, an even better human being, genuinely interested in – and truly caring – about people and the worthwhile causes he supports.
I would highly recommend Mark to anyone seeking a top-shelf professional photographer. Headshot Reviews by Kevin Kroft, Newport Beach, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark Jordan is a true pro. He cares about his client’s needs and listens better than anybody I know. He treats each photo, each second of preparation and each post-shot with total passion and precision. His company, his service, his commitment to excellence is refreshing to see. His smile and demeanor make posing for pictures easy and fun. Headshot Reviews by Paul Scheper, Coto de Caza, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “While you can get your professional headshot done by pretty much everyone (including your own ‘selfie’ on your phone), I would highly suggest you don’t.
I believed enough in Orange County headshots (and Mark Jordan) that I paid to have the President of one of my clients to have his headshot created by Mark.
Considering this client has been with me for over 3 years, I absolutely positively cannot afford to have any service I suggest fail to be the best.
I was rewarded, in spades. On the most recent business call, the CEO was explaining that the company needed to have their website headshots updated and the President (who has been the president of companies earning $500 million a year) said that his headshot from Mark was “The best photo of him, ever”.
If you want results that Rock Stars (literally) and Fortune 1000 Professionals seek out, I highly recommend Mark.” Headshot Reviews by Michael Anderle, Trophy Club, TX

Mark offers prompt and relative responses and provides great advice on every aspect of the experience, from what to wear to how he can help you to look your best. I highly recommend him!” Headshot Reviews by Paul Bertolone, San Clement, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “I have worked with Mark Jordan as an Art Director for over 20 years. Mark’s portraits are breathtaking and timeless. He is a master of lighting, portraits, and freezing moments in a magical and timeless manner. In fact, we have worked together on photo-shoots capturing images of children, animals (both VERY HARD to do), still life, cars, teenagers (harder than kids or pups!), landscapes… Mark is a perfectionist with his craft, yet is a humble gentleman and treats everyone with class and patience. Perhaps this is the reason why his images are breathtakingly fabulous. His talent is a blessing… he is a visual master who has the talent to capture moments where most other photographers miss. This is a skill which cannot be taught. He just is an amazing artist.” Headshot Reviews by Sawako – Art Director – Irvine

During the actual session, approximately 80 shots were taken. The next day I was sent more than 30 raw pictures to evaluate. I finally picked one. Then, the final print came a few days later. It was beautiful, with just the right amount of processing. I highly recommend Mark to anyone needing professional photography. I will surely use him again.” Headshot Reviews by Robert Crane, Newport Beach, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “I was hesitant in spending money on hiring a professional photographer. The difference between the snapshots I took and the ones Mark Jordan took were night and day. The fee for his service was reasonable and well worth the expertise Mark had in making me look as professional as possible. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable professional photographer who makes you look good, Mark Jordan Photography is the place.” Headshot Reviews by Doug Eberhardt – Foothill Ranch
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark, I wanted to share my reaction to you regarding my final headshots – they are fabulous! But then, based on all I knew about you, your approach, your knowledge, and your attention to detail, I was sure they would be. Thanks so much for making this a great experience and I look forward to working with you again in the future. Stay in touch.” Headshot Reviews by Ray Davies, Corona del Mar, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “I contacted Mark for an executive headshot to use for my re-entry to the workforce. Despite my dread of photography, Mark immediately put me at ease. He strikes the perfect balance between personable and professional and offered a wide variety of purchase options. Bottom line – Mark delivered and the process was enjoyable.” Headshot Reviews by Rob N., Newport Beach, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “To say that Mark Jordan’s work is impressive is an understatement. When we had to get our entire administrative team professionally photographed, I didn’t realize what an incredible difference Mark Jordan would make – he is the “wow” factor when it comes to finished product. Mark’s ability to capture the best images and smiles from our staff is just amazing. There’s no doubt, when we need a professional photographer, Mark’s the artist we seek.” Headshot Reviews by Kristen M., Mission Viejo, CA

✭✭✭✭✭ “Admit it: everyone hates to have their picture taken and everybody hates to see their picture. I’m no different.
Whenever I do have to get an updated photograph, the service, quality of image, and follow up work done by Mark Jordan is without peer. Mark Jordan provides a relaxed atmosphere to work in, a wide range of shots to choose from, with both “gentle” or “extreme” touch up work that makes the end result something even a camera shy guy like me proud of.
Highly recommend the services of Mark Jordan Photography.” Headshot Reviews by John Wheaton, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Orange County Photographer, Mark Jordan, since 1991 and have commissioned him to create multiple images for me, personally as well as for my company: Strictly Vacations in Santa Barbara. Being a one time professional photographer myself, and having specialized in celebrity weddings, I was and still am very particular in regards to the aesthetic values of photography.

His studio is set up in conjunction with his beautiful home, which keeps the vibe casual while very professional. Setting up appointments was convenient, communication was easy, feedback/proofs were prompt, prices competitive and I was so happy with the results. A true artist, a true professional, and I look forward to working with him again.” Headshot Reviews by Linh Hoang, Costa Mesa, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark Jordan is a Master Artiste. From start to finish there is not one item or small detail that is left out.

Mark is the only one we trusted with photographing all 7 seven siblings at the same time for the first and only time in our family history. He picked the setting and coached us on wardrobe and put everybody at ease with his calm and confident style.
The bottom line is we all looked good. If you were to meet us you would realize what an incredible feat that is.

Thanks Mark!” Headshot Reviews by Charlie Wilcoxson, Newport Coast, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “I couldn’t be more pleased with the head shot Mark did for me. The entire experience of working with Mark was a delight. Beginning with his web site, where you can see his impressive body of work. To the phone call I made to set up an appointment, which he answered personally. To his ability to fit me in that same day (it was a good hair day, and you know what I mean by that!) He prepped on what to wear depending on what I wanted to convey, and suggested I bring a couple of options. When I reached his home studio, he was nothing but gracious, complementary, soothing, and professional. He made me feel like a queen! The session was over before I even knew it and he covered every angle. I have the proofs that night, and selected the winner the next day. My final head shot was finished about 24 hours after that.
I would recommend Mark to anyone who wants a wonderful person to work with and wants wonderful results as well!” Headshot Reviews by Leslie Elkildsen, Mission Viejo, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “I highly recommend Mark and Orange County Headshots. I contacted Mark after reading the positive Yelp reviews, and he did not disappoint. He scheduled my appointment promptly and sent a very helpful e-mail before the shoot regarding the best clothes and colors to wear, make-up, etc. Mark is a consummate professional. He knows the best lighting and poses for his subject, and creates a fun and comfortable environment. He sent the photos to me immediately after, and helped me choose the best ones. I appreciated his patience and thoughtfulness. It is obvious he wants to make his clients happy, and he did!” Headshot Reviews by Meg S, San Juan Capistrano, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Often, a craftsman in any profession leaves their mark regardless of their craft. The work product which is represented by them, echoes their passion for their craft as well as their skill. And while many can do various elements of a craft, its a true craftsman that puts its all together. In the past 10 years I have been shooting sports photography with the eye of a photographer. And while a complementary craft of photography, what Mark does with headshot alone is a noticeable talent that can be recognized when looking at his products. The photography eye, the post-editing skills and the receiving ear to listen to what the client desires is why Predictive Technologies looks to Mark for our professional headshots. We look forward to more years of shared friendship!” Headshot Reviews by Neil Greene, Coto de Caza, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark Jordan is the go to photographer for professional headshots. He creates an atmosphere of comfort that allows you to have the best experience. The results are stellar. I was provided with several images to select from. HIs service and follow up are excellent.” Headshots Review by David Lopez, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “I first had the pleasure of working with Mark when my employer, was updating their corporate website. Several of the company officers met at Mark’s studio to take our head shots. Mark provided guidance on what to bring to the shoot.
From the outset, Mark was very engaging and professional, and made all of us very comfortable. The proof is in the product, and I will submit that all our photos brought out the best in us, and the head shots were a welcome addition to the company website.
On several other occasions, Mark also took photos of company events, and again was a true professional, and brought out the best in his subjects.
I have recommended other colleagues to Orange County Headshots, and no one left disappointed.
If you want to be captured in the most flattering manner, I definitely recommend Mark and Orange County Headshot.” Headshot Reviews by Felipe M., Orange, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark Jordan is not about just taking a headshot for you but it’s an experience. We all forget about how much details matter until we work with Mark thinking it’s just a picture. Well it just isn’t. We were impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, patience and amazing technical skills but mostly about his ability to guide for the right shot for the right look for the right purpose. Don’t even think about shopping around. It’s a million dollar experience!” Headshot Reviews by Pavlos Alexandrou, Northridge, CA
✭✭✭✭✭ “Mark – I’ve been meaning to send you a note of praise for the fantastic final images from my head shots with you one week ago. They are fantastic. After posting one of them (the tie) on LinkedIn, I received numerous “likes” of the photo. I didn’t even know people could “like” a photo on LinkedIn. They are great! Thank you for your professional skill and talents. Fondly and until next time.” Headshot Reviews by Scott C., Mission Viejo, CA
