"Jordan Matter creates some of the best headshots we have seen in quite a while. The sessions provide great pictures, and when we need a refresher, we go back to the original shoot and find many new and wonderful choices. Of course, we prefer that actors actually go back to Jordan for another shoot because he understands them so well, and therefore the actors fall right into a comfort zone. If you want a great look, use Jordan Matter for the most current and commercial shoot."
Gary Krasny, The Krasny Agency, NYC
"As the owner of Strickman-Ripps Inc Casting and Research (and former photographer) I have seen literary thousands of head shots pass through my office. Jordan's work captured my attention because he makes beautiful images of people using natural light, vivid color in a painterly style, and dynamic compositions. At the same time, his photographs capture the subject's authenticity- they look like their best but "real" self. As a matter of fact, I hired him to take my promotional shots!"
"As a casting director and a teacher of on-camera commercial techniques, Jordan Matter is the ONLY headshot photographer I recommend. He is simply the best. He captures your essence, highlights your best self in shots that have life. I even put my money where my mouth is, as an actor, he did my headshots and I LOVE them. I always ask actors - do you love your headshots? if not, you are doing yourself a HUGE disservice. If you work with Jordan you will LOVE your headshots!"
Nadette Staša, freelance casting director, NYC
“I’ve been an agent for 27 years and Jordan is one of the most consistent photographers I’ve ever recommended. He has an innate way of putting the actor’s personality in the forefront, and no one’s headshot ends up looking formulaic. He consistently takes some of the best headshots in NY. The only problem with Jordan is you have too many great photos to choose from.”
Michael Guy, Atlas Talent Agency, NYC
"I can always recognize a headshot by Jordan Matter. You can see into the actor’s eyes, and I feel like I understand who the actor is. It is a natural representation of the performer. I trust Jordan to bring out the true qualities in my clients, to show their craft, personality, and essence of who they are."
Lakey Wolff, CESD Talent Agency, NYC
“I’ve been looking at Jordan’s headshots lately and loving them. I will be recommending him to the zillions of actors that pass through my hemisphere!”
Marci Phillips, ABC Entertainment, Executive Director of Primetime Casting
“Jordan’s photography is very naturalistic and captures the essence of each actor. They look as they do when they walk through the door for an audition. Jordan’s style is very unique and beautiful.”
Jen Rudolph, Mitchell/Rudolph Casting, NYC
“Jordan took some lovely shots of a recent actress. I used one of them for a film submission to Donna Desetta Casting, and she was the only one of my women to be called in for an audition. Her photographs are the very best natural light headshots I’ve seen. I am so impressed. And I’m sure that since all of these people are very young, with no credits to speak of, the selection was based on the headshot.”
Margaret Emory, Dulcina Eisen Agency, NYC
I am thrilled with the pictures! Everyone looks wonderful, without looking like someone else. They are perfect for our needs and better than I hoped for (and I hoped for a lot...) And you made it all fun! As our company continues to grow, we will be back with new people...happily!
