Serving Glendale


Headshots by The Light Committee began with a studio in La Crescenta, a suburb of Glendale, in 2015. It moved to the Los Angeles Arts District for a year before moving to Glendale, CA, in early 2020. Glendale is just 12 miles north of the arts district in downtown Los Angeles. The studio is operated by photographer, Rafael.

Rafael provides Glendale customers with premium quality headshot services at a low cost. This helps meet the needs of actor, corporate, model, people needing dating profile photos, and other customers. Lifestyle headshot sessions are also offered.

Glendale Services

A series of studio headshot sessions are offered. These sessions are all conducted with high-end commercial-grade lighting and camera equipment. In addition, there is a natural light headshot session. This one is done by walking around the arts district and using the city’s vast backdrops to create themes. Finally, there is also a set of sessions for mobile headshot services. In this case, the studio comes to your office to photograph the team, making for a convenient way to get premium headshots.

For each of the studio headshot sessions, you select a number of retouched photos that you want. For this retouch, you will get a print-quality version and an online-optimized version of the photo. The print-quality file can be printed as an 8×10” photo. The online-optimized file is a JPEG file that is smaller, but with practically the same visible quality, to use online. Some websites where you need to submit a photo have limits to the size you can submit, and this file helps meet these requirements.

Also, the remaining usable photos from the session are provided. They are provided without retouching and as online-optimized files. So, you can use these extras for social media, to share with friends, or simply to save in case you change your mind in the future about the photo you had selected for retouching.


Headshots by The Light Committee prides itself on delivering a visible level of quality that stands apart from competing services. Then, there are the rates per session that are also lower than average. So, these two elements provide customers with an unmatched value.

Another thing the studio prides itself on is delivering a level of customer service that is premium. This includes delivering fast results and responses to inquiries. In addition, Rafael has strong agency public relations and marketing experience. It helps customers with mutual understanding or providing advice as to how to best use or create the headshots for branding. Collectively, these elements make for a headshot experience unlike anywhere else.
