Prior to our acquisition by Backstage, Robert Kim was our most prominent photographer advertiser for over fifteen years. The advertising concepts and memorable images he created for so many talented actors have not gone unnoticed by everyone who worked at Drama-Logue these many years. (more…)
Dear Robert –
You have been “my man” ever since I was fourteen, two headshots and a lifetime ago.
I’ve stuck with you all this time for good reason. Your headshots really, really WORK (hopefully the many friends I’ve referred to you actually took my advice!). (more…)
I narrowed down my choice of photographers to two people and made an appointment to meet Robert first because I favored his work most from the many websites I’d seen. I was looking for some chemistry or connection with the photographer and/or a feeling of being comfortable with them before making my final decision. (more…)
After noticing your ad in Backstage, I took a look at your website and, I must say, I was quite impressed. So, I made an appointment to visit you at your studio. When I arrived you suggested I look through your collection of headshot books before we spoke. I was particularly intrigued by the “Before and After” books (showing the headshots of various actors had prior to their session with you, side-by-side with the headshots you created for them). (more…)
I wonder if you realize how your are able to change someone’s life with a photograph.
My dear friend MaryAnn Bacallo, went to you for her corporate headshot and came back with a new image of herself and renewed confidence that I’ve never seen before, or since. (more…)
Being a somewhat superstitious person, I’ve hesitated to write you for fear that this recent run of good fortune would be jinxed. Returning to the city last year, after ten years on the road performing in several national stage tours, it was time to update my headshot. I returned to my favourite photographer; someone I had been employing effectively since I came to NY in 1983. (more…)
Anyone in need of good headshots should see you ASAP and not waste time checking out other photographers. I know we’ll be back. Your studio has such a relaxed atmosphere, like hanging out with friends. I’ll never forget – when Stephanie and I arrived about 15 minutes early, while waiting for Colleen, the professional makeup artist, you gave us your spot-on Elvis Presley impression by singing “Don’t Be Cruel” complete with music. (more…)
As you know, I went to take headshots for my live interviews on FOX, CNN, and several other syndicated television financial programs. The pictures taken by this photographer were awful. They resembled a mug shot. (more…)
I knew Robert Kim was the one to take my new headshots during the initial consultation. We spoke about my own career aspirations, and as I am a clasically trained singer crossing over to musical theater, he told me how he had taken headshots of several women who went on to play ‘Christine Daae’, the female lead in “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway including Sandra Joseph, (more…)
I just finished my photo session with you and I needed to tell you what a great experience it was for me. I was overwhelmed by how different you were than I had imagined. I was so sure that someone who came so highly recommended would be very unapproachable and to be honest, I had already decided that I was not going to use you before we even met! (more…)
We would all like to thank you for the great headshot you have done for us. It has made a tremendous difference in the number of auditions we have gone on and walk we have received. Our nine-year-old daughter Christiane has been chosen from her headshot alone on several jobs. (more…)
I saw a headshot of a student of mine recently at my workshop at The Actors Connection. I immediately asked, “WHO DID YOUR HEADSHOT??” (more…)
Robert is the consummate professional from start to finish. I am a career and image coach, with my new book, “The image of Success: Make a Great Impression and Land The Job You Want,” launching in May 2010. (more…)
When I won the complimentary photo shoot with you at this year’s Actorfest drawing, I thought: Why should I get new headshots when the ones I have already work for me?” Boy, was I wrong! (more…)
Hi Robert 🙂
It was such an amazing pleasure to meet you this week. I am so excited for my appointment with you next Friday. I’ve been going through Backstage Online and reviewing the posted headshots as well as resumes and (more…)
Hi Robert 🙂
It was such a treat to reconnect with you the other nite. It is amazing what has happened for me ever since I’ve sent out the headshots you created. It has been almost exactly as you have said. (more…)
I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful photos. I will get a copy of my prints out to you. SinceI don’t have many credits to my name yet and haven’t been in the business for so many years I wasn’t expecting a lot of response. (more…)
How can I begin to thank you, not only for the outstanding work you did on my new headshots, but for your sincere support and guidance! As you know, it’s been years since I’ve had new shots taken. (more…)
Robert, we are absolutely thrilled with these photos – so much in fact that we can’t begin to choose and need your advice! Colleen is an incredible makeup artist and your work clearly speaks for itsef. (more…)
I am so glad I chose you to do my new headshots.
If you recall, it was only about a year ago when I was first in your studio having you take my pictures so that I could start a new acting career. (more…)
This was my second headshot session with you, Robert.
You already know all of the great things that happened to my career after your first ones. But this time, something far more important happened…I met my future husband!
I was walking down 10th avenue two years ago and saw this incredible looking guy taking some hockey equipment out of he trunk of his car. (more…)
Let me start this letter by saying that you have no idea how happy I am about the way my headshots came out, the feeling really can’t be put down on paper. (more…)
I just had to write to tell you how much I enjoyed my “Robert Kim Experience!” I can’t believe how hands-on you are. I have had headhshots done by two other photographers and neither one of them spent as much time with me as you did. (more…)
Dear Fellow Actors,
Your headshot is probably one of the MOST important decisions an actor has to make. While my first headshot was a promising “headstart” and brought me a relatively consistent response, (more…)
Here’s what I have to say about you!
When I decided to become serious about my acting career I knew that every investment I made had to count. (more…)
I am writing this letter to share my story with your and your clients. As a SAG actor from Philadelphia, I found breaking into the New York market to be extremely difficult. I had no representation, and the responses to my mailings were tepid, at best. (more…)
..I am speechless, literally speechless..but even so this is a very easy and much needed letter to write- nice with that haircut, it was transforming. After meeting with you and her I truly felt like a mark was being made in my life, like rom here out only great things will be happening. (more…)
I just wanted to let you know of the spectacular – almost magical – responses I’ve been having from the headshots you took.
As you know, I’m really just starting out on my acting career. Nevertheless, In the past two weeks, I’ve taken eight auditions, all based on responses from mailing your headshots! (more…)
I joined Actor’s Connection this evening and came across a photo which pointed me to your website. I have been researching many photographers in NYC, but I was “blown away” by your OUTSTANDING work, (more…)
It’s David Rivera I wanted to say Thanks for giving me the look I wanted in my headshots and let you know I made it safely out to L.A. I’ve been here for a month and have started taking some classes and already doing extra work. (more…)
