A great headshot is your best first impression!



When people view a photo of you, they are looking at your face, primarily your eyes.  

They are asking themselves:  

“Can I trust him or her?”  

“Do I want to work with him or her?”  

I’ve been photographing people for over 35 years. My approach is to make you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera….to put you at ease. If you are relaxed and you enjoy the photo shoot, you are likely to have a better result. 

Your headshot should capture your best you.  

It should convey whatever you want it to convey: 

confidence, authenticity, approachability, authority, creativity. I am committed to making that happen.  

On the following pages you will see headshots and portraits I've taken for professionals in various fields:  

modeling, performing arts, real estate, sales, civil service, health/medical, counseling, law, and business. 

My headshots are frequently used on social media sites and for online dating. 

I look forward to creating an photo for you that you will want to use over and over.

I want to thank all those who took the time to express their appreciation. 

My friend Carl is my go to guy for headshots and merchandising shots. He is extremely professional and efficient. His work is artistic and flawless. Oh, and did I mention that he's a heck of a nice guy?JD Pinckney  

When I think of Carl Kravats, the first word that comes to mind is "pro." He totally knows what he's doing when it comes to photography and his work and experience demonstrate it. Plus, he is a fun person to hang out and his pictures reflect who you are and what you want from the photos. I would highly recommend him to take pictures of me or for me anytime.- Carl Love - Press Enterprise newspaper columnist for 26 years - Author of From Two Lanes to the Fast Lane 

I have known Carl for about 9 years now and really appreciate his work. He took the most beautiful maternity photos for me before my first daughter was born and took an incredible headshot of me that became my business card. Carl has a way of capturing emotion in his photos and making them come alive. Plus, he is a great guy and fun to work with!- Kimberly Davidson - Marketing Expert and Business Development Manager, Murrieta 

Carl is a brilliant photographer. You can feel comfortable and relaxed when having your head shot or portrait done by Carl. He knows how to make you look your best and quickly zeros in on the best look.- Bob Hagel 

As a professional Graphic Designer, I have worked with many photographers over the years. I have never seen anyone with the talent Carl has to get “just the right look” out of his clients so quickly! It is truly a gift.- Robbie Adkins -Adkins Consulting 

Carl gets to know his subjects personally. Combine this with his knowledge of lighting and composition, add a little camera technique, and you end up with the portrait that makes you look better than you've ever seen yourself. Carl rocks! - Rob Radican-Luthier 

Carl is the most amazing photographer. I have been photographed throughout my life and have not found another photographer more talented than Carl. In the number of photo shoots he has done for me, he always has made me feel very relaxed and so natural that he is able to capture some amazing shots. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a photographer will do a fantastic job. C. Robles 

It was a real pleasure working with you on my photo shoot. I just want to say how sensitive and artistic you were to light and composition in presenting me in a manner I had never previously seen before. Again, I thank you whole-heartedly.Leo Gosselin 

Carl is so much more than a photographer. He is a true artist! In the dozen or so years that we have been acquainted, I have always admired his eye for the creative and his ability to bring out the absolute best with any subject. His professionalism and business acumen are of the highest standards. Carl is just such a pleasure to work with that I recommend him highly. - Leslie D
