"Mark Jordan of Orange County Headshots is by and far the best portrait photographer While writing for the photo industry, I had the pleasure of working with the finest photographers in Southern California. Each had their own specialty. None were the best at everything. Portraits, architecture, sports, candids, etc, each required time and practice to develop an expertise, and I had to identify each and direct them in producing quality works of photographic art for clients. Mark Jordan of Orange County Headshots is by and far the best portrait photographer I ever encountered. His mastery of portraiture is reminiscent of the masters of the art and unparalleled by any modern photographer I know."

"Mark Jordan is an absolute professional Mark Jordan is an absolute professional, and his work is incredible. Having a need for a professional “headshot” photograph on a short notice, I searched the web and discovered Mr. Jordan. His studio in Rancho Santa Margarita was very convenient to my South OC home, so I e mailed the site asking for an appointment–hopefully as soon as possible. Without boring the readers, I urgently needed this corporate headshot the same day to comply with a boardroom level deadline. To my surprise, Mr. Jordan contacted me and was able to adjust his schedule to accommodate my short notice issues. What was even more shocking was his artistic ability to take what is arguably an unattractive image and turn it into something more acceptable–at least it didn’t drive away the corporate viewers! All kidding aside, working with Mark Jordan was an absolute pleasure and he provided an excellent product at a very reasonable cost. Please, if you need to have any family or professional photos that you want to proudly display, you should contact Orange County Headshots and ask for an appointment with Mark Jordan! You’ll be very glad you did!"

"Thank you Mark and Kari for all your help! I put off this process as long as I could and now asking myself why? Mark was so pleasant and easy to work with, it couldn’t have been more FUN:) Not to mention, he exceeded expectations in delivering the headshots to me promptly. He also added a headshot at no charge changing the color of my outfit as I had to make a last minute, emergency wardrobe change. That thoughtfulness and generosity was unexpected and greatly appreciated:) On another positive note, the pricing is very reasonable when compared to what some of my colleagues paid. I will definitely be back next year when I need another headshot. Thank you Mark and Kari for all your help!"
- Kristen L. | Fountain Valley, CA
"Mark was absolutely phenomenal Mark was absolutely phenomenal and making me look good and professional in a very short turnaround time. I would highly recommend him to any professional looking for a portrait, headshot, or even a product shot. He is outstanding, and very reasonable."
- Charles L. | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
"The quality is beautiful Another wonderful experience working with Mark Jordan! Our fourth and last high school senior portrait…hopefully head shots next after college for our job-seeking sons! The quality is beautiful, and the essence of the individual personality is captured beautifully!"
- Susan D. | Laguna Hills, CA
"Mark definitely takes it to another level I hate the camera, and Mark made it a pleasure rather than a torture session. He loves his work and it shows. I have had head shots before that were good, but Mark definitely takes it to another level."
- Cathy M. | San Clemente, CA

"Give Mark a try, you will be pleased!! Like most people, I HATE having my picture taken. However, I sucked it up and started searching for a photographer on Yelp. I needed a professional picture for various career related things. So, I scheduled the appointment. The morning of the shoot, I wanted to cancel. I mean, could I just shoot a “selfie” and call it a day. However, I trudged on over to keep my appointment. It was not only PAINLESS but I enjoyed the time with Mark. Mark is a true professional and I actually could not believe we were finished as the time just flew by! I have no battle wounds from the experience and an AWESOME career photo. I am pretty sure my Mark Jordan’s career picture is a thousand times better than my selfie would have been!! Give Mark a try, you will be pleased!!"
- Teri M. | Mission Viejo, CA
"I wish I could give more than 5 stars! I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Mark and Kari exceeded my expectations. Mark is a true professional, and he certainly lived up to his tag line that “no concern is too small.” He is highly skilled with the camera and has an incredible eye for detail, in addition to being lightening-fast with his turnaround time. I wasn’t even referred by anyone; I just chose him online because his location was convenient for me, but I got lucky because he did such a great job. I won’t consider anyone else for future work, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience and the end product."
- Susan V. | Trabuco Canyon, CA
"Thank you Mark and your team! Absolutely love my real estate head shots Mark created for my career! I would recommend him to anyone looking for professional pics! He was great to work with and I’m hoping to use him in the future with additional head shots I will be needing! Thank you Mark and your team!"
- Nellie R. | Anaheim Hills, CA
"HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Mark did a fantastic job for my friend’s headshot. My friend flew in for a couple days & needed a Professional Headshot ASAP. He was able to get an appointment with Mark the very next day – Mark went out of his way to get the proofs to him that evening – then Mark turned them around with retouching the following morning. His work is excellent, customer service is outstanding and Mark couldn’t be more delightful. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!"
- Colleen T. | Coronado, CA

- Mike P. | Costa Mesa, CA

The photos turned out great and everyone looks very friendly and approachable which is exactly what we were going for."
- Greg S. | Laguna Niguel, CA
"I highly recommend Mark Jordan Mark is a true professional photographer. He made me feel very comfortable during session with his friendly professionalism – great experience. My final digital copy was ready after 24 hours business day! He understands your situation and offers several options to choose from. I highly recommend Mark Jordan for any photography need to have!"
- Kamaran T. | Irvine, CA
"Highly recommended. Very professional and excellent work. Very happy and pleased with the results! Highly recommended."
- Greg K. | San Clemente, CA
"He is one of the top professional photographers in the world Mark Jordan has been my photographer for nearly two and a half decades and I keep returning for two reasons: He is brilliantly talented at making me, and my family, look amazing AND he is completely fabulous to work with.
He consistently strives to go above and beyond what you would expect – and that is because he takes such great pride in his work. He actually cares about what he creates for you. He is one of the top professional photographers in the world for a reason – he is that good. Don’t even think about going with second best – you only have to see Mark’s quality to know you made the right choice."
- Juli Shulem | Santa Barbara, CA
"Thank you Mark! I first met Mark Jordan right after graduating with a degree in photography. I called him regarding his mentor program where he meets with photographers and shares his photography secrets. He does this all for a free lunch, which is what his program is called, LOYD (Lunch On Your Dime). What I didn’t realize is that I learned just as much about the art of life and working with people as I did about the art of photography.
When I first heard of Mark’s LOYD program I figured it would probably be some sort of routine obligation he performs as part of good marketing, but thought it would be worth meeting him regardless. What I soon discovered is that our time together was anything but perfunctory – he cares passionately about his craft and people, and it shows.
Mark made me feel as if I was the only person on the planet he cared to talk with that day. He listened to me and gave me more constructive feedback than I knew was possible. Today, I am better photographer, businessman, and person.
Though my review is not about work Mark did for me, I wanted to thank him by saying something about the character and kindness of extraordinary photographer. Mark is not just one of America’s most sought after portrait photographers, he’s a remarkable man. Thank you Mark!"
- Chris Miller | Los Angeles, CA
"Mark Jordan is a world-class photographer Mark Jordan is a world-class photographer and has done many shots for my music career over the years. So many people own a camera and think if they spend enough money they are photographers. Truth be told, there are few with the knowledge and experience that Mark has and his work shows it. I love the studio shots, live performance shots and even the wedding and engagement shots Mark has done for me. If you want the real deal, call a pro and not just another ebay camera owner that dresses up like a photographer! Mark Jordan will always deliver……."
- Greg Vail | Laguna Hills, CA
"“No one better than Mark Jordan.” I needed a great headshot (my iPhone snap wasn’t cutting it) and asked a friend whose headshot was the motivation behind my awareness of needing a professional business photo. She told me that there was “No one better than Mark Jordan.”
I did my homework and everything about Mark sounded great. Not only were his credentials impressive, his prices were less than I had budgeted.
Then l noticed his studio was in Rancho Santa Margarita, about 40 minutes from my office in Long Beach. I called my friend back and asked her if she knew any photographers closer. This is when she let me have it: “David, seriously? How many Hall of Fame, Master photographers are there in America, let alone just a hop over to Orange County? How important is your headshot, really?” She made her point.
FREE ADVICE: treat yourself like you would your best friend and treat yourself to one of the finest photographers in the country. I promise you, you’ll be elated you did."
- David Anderson | Long Beach, CA
"I love my headshot! I discovered the hard way that there are thousands of moms-with-cameras throughout the county, all believing that owing a camera makes them a professional photographer. What I also discovered is that poser and professional alike, all hope to be like a Mark Jordan. But there is only ONE Mark Jordan and he’s right here in Orange County! So why settle for a wannabe when you can have the real thing, especially when the cost is so low? I love my headshot!"
- Rebecca Webb | Buena Park, CA
"Mark is outstanding! Mark is outstanding. With my agency, we’ve worked with many photographers over the years. I can be picky, but Mark is easy to work with and very professional. This isn’t something Mark is doing while he’s waiting for his “big break” in something else. He was fully focused on creating the best headshots to serve my various purposes. The shoot was casual while being professional, and his friendly demeanor is relaxing. Setting up the appointment was convenient, communication was solid, the post-shoot process flowed smoothly, and his prices were good. Two thumbs up. 🙂"
- Scott Shuford | Mission Viejo, CA
"You won’t be disappointed! I am a real estate photographer and friends with Mark. He does fantastic work! I refer all the agents I work with to get a professional headshot taken by him, that’s saying something! His skill, talent and expertise are second to none. You won’t be disappointed!"
- Aubrey Antis | Lake Forest, CA
"Mark is the ultimate professional. Mark is the ultimate professional. I needed a head shot for a company website and was so lucky to find Orange County Headshots.

- Kyle S | Mission Viejo, CA
"Mark was a true professional! Chose Mark based on Yelp but wasn’t sure what to expect. Was very pleasantly surprised at the personal touches from scheduling, emails, and the final touch ups and file exchange. As a busy professional I don’t want to deal with flakes who don’t reply to emails or get the job done timely. Mark was a true professional himself."
- Todd Harris | Huntington Beach, CA

I highly recommend him to anyone looking for headshot photos. You will not be disappointed!"
- Wendy Brown | Pleasanton, CA
"Thank you Mark! I have worked with Mark Jordan (Orange County Head Shots) for 30 over years. It all started with a gorgeous formal bridal portrait and since then we have called upon Mark for all our portraits needs, both personal and professional photography.
Mark is not only a joy to work with but he also a perfectionist when it comes to the details of his work. He is a true artist in all aspects and is very passionate about his work.
I recently hired Mark not only for my my new professional headshot but also to create our family portraits. There were so many expressions we loved, the decision process was simply overwhelming. Fortunately, Mark is a very patient man – he helped us every step of the way and ensured our choices matched our needs. We could not be any more delighted!
Because of working with Mark for so many years, I have become a bit of a “portrait snob.” When friends and associates forward me their headshots, they appear sterile, washed out, and lack that special sparkle that I’ve grown accustomed to with Mark’s unparalleled quality. I always refer them to call Mark Jordan and could not recommend him any more enthusiastically.
Thank you Mark for doing such phenomenal work for me and my family over all these years. I have always been thrilled with not only the beautiful portraits you’ve created for us, but your extraordinary service, kind heart and and consummate professionalism. Looking forward to our next portrait!"
- Shelly Sander | Carlsbad, CA
" I can think of no one better than Mark Jordan at Orange County Headshots I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Mark Jordan of Orange County Headshots, since 1991 and have commissioned Mark to create multiple headshots 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. Rarely have I seen a photographer rise to the caliber of Mark Jordan’s imaginative and creative flair.
When you want the very best, I can think of no one better than Mark Jordan at Orange County Headshots."
- Steve Shulem | Santa Barbara, CA
"His work is excellent and I will be using his services regularly. Mark has been consistently helpful and professional in all my dealings with him.

- Joe Dallas | Tustin, CA
"Mark is wonderful to work with. Mark is wonderful to work with. Kind, accommodating, professional, and FAST. I called him with a ridiculously last-minute timeline and he was able to meet every deadline with time to spare and beautiful results. When I had a slight picky comment about coloring, he immediately tweaked the final product so that it was exactly how I wanted, no troubles or questions asked. Definitely a great experience!"
- Nicola Bertoni | Fullerton, CA
"Orange County Headshots is the only place to go! I have recently used Mark Jordan at Orange County Headshots for some promotional/advertising pieces. Needless to say, the results were far beyond what I imagined. We have recently published a quarterly magazine that has received rave reviews from clients and the publisher.
Don’t bother comparing any other photographer with Mark Jordan…there is no comparison. His work and credentials speak for themselves. You want a professional who understands all the aspects of photography for your business. His creativity will blow you away.
Orange County Headshots is the only place to go!"
- Clark Hyman | Coto De Caza, CA
"Great experience! My wife and I both had our first Headshots taken with Mark. He was probably the most fun and relational photographer I’ve ever worked with! Very flexible, great experience, and he bends over backward to make sure you’re happy with the finished product."
- Michael Bischof | Trabuco Canyon, CA
"WOW!! What a great experience. WOW!! What a great experience. I chose Mark Jordan off the internet needing a photo for my works website, and fast. I was scheduled 2 days later at the time I had asked for. Great prep information was given. When I showed up I had 4 shirts to choose from for under my jacket, Mark quickly let me know the best option for my hair color etc. The photos were fast and comfortable and I was done in no time. That night I had all my raw proofs and the next day I had given him my choice for the final. Editing and retouching was done in hours. AMAZING."
- Raelyn Ritchi | Newport Beach, CA
" I would highly recommend Mark Jordan to anyone I have never had a headshot taken before, and I wanted to make sure it was done right the first time. After reading the Yelp reviews for Mark and Orange County Headshots, I decided I had found the right match. Mark did an amazing job and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. I actually struggled with which photo to choose because he took so many great ones. His turnaround time is extremely fast and his prices are very fair. He even has a deal for the unemployed! I would highly recommend Mark Jordan to anyone seeking a polished and professional photographer, who also happens to be a nice guy!"
- Rebecca Wehr | Irvine, CA
"Mark is the best photographer on So. California. From the moment I entered his studio, Mark eased my nerves and assured me that I was in fact photogenic. His easy going manner combined with his professionalism create the master photographer. Proofs were available the next day and the final picture was completed soon after. Mark is the best photographer on So. California."
- Michele Baldwin | Riverside, CA
"You will be happy with headshot! I came to Mark because I hated a recent headshot very much. It looked stiff and very formal. I had noticed how good a friend’s of mines was, and she recommended Mark. I paid exactly the same money (totally reasonable) to have Mark take my headshot again, and the result is so much better. The experience was far improved as well. Mark has an easy going, pleasant manner that makes you feel far less self conscious. He has professional posing ideas, that feel natural. His lighting is also very good. The speed to get the results and the proofing review process are smooth and easy. Mark’s touch-up work on the final photo is professional too (me but a little better). Mark was simple to book an appointment with (one call and done) and enjoyable to work with. His results are excellent. I will recommend Mark to all my friends and colleagues and am now recommending him to you. You will be happy with headshot!"
- Rebecca Gonzalez | Corona Del Mar, CA
"Would definitely recommend! Mark was extremely professional and polite throughout the entire process, even going as far as to offer an additional touching up of the headshot at a discounted price. The entire session was a breeze, lasting no more than ten minutes tops, with the headshots turning out beautifully. Would definitely recommend!"
- Dominic Nardini | Lake Forest, CA
"I highly recommend him for any photography need you have. Having photographs taken of has always been an uncomfortable experience for me. Mark’s real strength is being able to put you at ease and capture the most authentic you as opposed to just taking a photo. As a result he took many photos that are the best ever taken of me. Mark is a remarkable person with an incredible story and a pleasure to be with. I highly recommend him for any photography need you have."
- Jeff Bennett | Orange, CA
"fabulous! 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."
- Ray Davies | Corona Del Mar, CA
"I highly recommend Mark and Orange County Headshots. 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!"
- Meg Smith | San Juan Capistrano, CA
"Thanks Mark! Mark is a fantastic photographer. It seems overkill to have such a master do my headshot but the results are phenomenal.

Mark is great for on-site photography or at his studio in South Orange County."
- Charles Ferrell | Newport Beach, CA
"quick…fantastic…fair prices…awesome guy Very quick session. Fantastic results. Fair prices. Awesome guy. I can’t imagine better. Mark will send out a pre-shoot advice email.

"Mark is a true professional Mark is a true professional. From the moment I entered his studio, he made me feel very comfortable and relaxed, which for a photo sitting was very appreciative. The end result was a tough choice as he was able to produce multiple extremely high quality images to choose from.
At the end of the day, it was a pleasure doing business with Mark and having him create a very professional head shot of me. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for an image that displays YOU. Also, very easy to do business with, which is always a plus!"
- Ira Globerson | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Thank you for your professional skill and talents. Fondly and until next time."

- Mary G. | Orange, CA
"Mark is an Excellent Photographer “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!”"
- Neil Greene | Cote De Caza, CA
"Fantastic photographer Fantastic photographer for professional &/or family photos. Experienced, knowledgeable & works quickly! So worth the money & time!"

- Eduardo M | Huntington Beach, CA
"Mark was very engaging and professional 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."
- Felipe M | Orange, CA
"Mark Jordan is the go to photographer for professional headshots 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."
- David Lopez | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
"Don’t even think about shopping around 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!"
- Pavlos Alexandrou | Northridge, CA
"I couldn’t be more pleased 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!"
- Leslie Elkildsen | Mission Viejo, CA

"I couldn’t be more pleased Mark did some headshots photos for me a few weeks ago and i have never got any work done before so I didn’t know what to expect but mark was great. He was extremely friendly and professional, not afraid to go the extra mile for his costumers, answered all my questions and help me pick out the best picture, and in the end I couldn’t be more pleased with the way my headshot turned out. I would definitely recommend Mark Jordan Photography."

"Mark is the only one we trusted I am so intimidated to try and write a recommendation after reading these previous eloquent reviews already posted so I’ll just give it to you straight.
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.
I am past president of Professional Photographer of California and have had the opportunities to work with many Photographic Masters but Mark was our first choice and he should be yours too"
- John Goolsby | Riverside, CA

I had never done a head shot before and I had some trepidation going into our photo shoot. From the get go Mark not only made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed but also made the experience fun and enjoyable. I cannot stress the level of professionalism at which Mark operates, it is second to none and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending any of his services. It has been a privilege to work with and for Mark."

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."

"I can think of no one better than Mark Jordan 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. Rarely have I seen a photographer rise to the caliber of Mark Jordan’s imaginative and creative flair. When you want the very best, I can think of no one better than Mark Jordan."
- Steven E Shulem | Santa Barbara, CA
"Mark Jordan provides a relaxed atmosphere 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."
- John Wheaton | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
"He truly is an artist I can honestly say I have never met a more professional and gifted photographer like Mark. He truly is an artist when it comes to taking photographs. His pictures that he took of me more than met my expectations. He really has a gift and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have professional photographs done."
- Paul Eisenberg | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
"He is the “wow” factor 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."
- Kristen M | Mission Viejo, CA
"He strikes the perfect balance between personable and professional 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."
- Rob N | Newport Beach, CA
"Mark Jordan Photography is the place 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."
- Doug Eberhardt | Foothill Ranch, CA
"I will surely use him again. I found Mark Jordan after reading reviews and talking to others who had used his services. I hired him to take my headshot. We had an initial meeting just to exchange information. 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."
- Robert Crane | Newport Beach, CA
"Beyond a photographer, he is a true artist Mark just finished my corporate head shots. He did an exceptional job and well beyond my expectations.

- Janet S. | Tustin, CA
"This is a skill which cannot be taught 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."
- Sawako – Art Director | Irvine, CA
"Mark is a true professional Mark is a true professional who is a master of his craft. He has the ability to make his subject(s) comfortable and draw the finest points of their personalities out.

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!"

"I highly recommend Mark 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."
- Michael Anderle | Trophy Club, CA
"Mark Jordan is a true pro 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."
- Paul Scheper | Coto De Caza, CA
"Mark is a tremendous artist 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.

- Kevin Kroft | Newport Beach, CA

- Erik Bakker | Mission Viejo, CA
"His use of light is the hallmark of a great photographer 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."
- Jack Durish | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
