What a fun evening! Jerry, you are incredible! You made me feel so special and unique. You're fun and easy to work with because you have a unique ability to disengage the subject from any rigidity in themselves and engage them in the moment. I'm so glad I met you. Thank you for sharing yourself.

"Jerry was terrific -- a wonderful photographer, genuine human being and total professional. I am not at all comfortable having my picture taken, but he put me at ease and made me feel at home. Plus, his photos are uniquely shot -- he really captured who I was, inside and out. That's in part because he took the time to get to know me. His prices were very reasonable, and he delivered the pictures quickly. Look closely at his sample head shots -- he shows an artistry unique to headshot photographers. Plus, he is a really kind, friendly person. I also recommend his makeup artist. She made me look better, but still like me, which is exactly what I wanted. "
Jerry is an amazing photographer. I needed specific photos done for a project concerning my career as an artist. Jerry went above and beyond to help create and capture exactly what I was looking for. I am absolutely happy with his professionalism and the quality of his work. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for professional photography!
It was such a pleasure having my photos taken by Jerry Camarillo. He is very professional, fun to work with, and always has great ideas on how to get a great shot. I have had dance pictures, headshots, and pictures for modeling taken by him and I have never been disappointed. I absolutely love every picture he has taken of me, as well as many of my friends, and I would recommend him to anyone. Any type of picture you need, he is definitely the man to go to.

I needed a head-shot for my clinic website. Jerry was great! He is very professional at what he does. I loved the setup of his studio; very clean / organized but warm at the same time. I am not comfortable in front of the camera at all, especially this being the first time taking a professional head-shot. Just by the way Jerry talks and gives you instructions, you start "loosening up" quickly, allowing him to be able to take the right shot. Speaking of the right shot, this guy already knows the shot that he wants and will not settle for anything else. Following the photo shoot, he sat with me and we reviewed all the pictures that he took. This is when you notice how much Jerry pays attention to details; you notice how he has been able to pick up on the slight changes in head position, lighting, the right smile, etc. to get the right look.
He shows you comparisons of one shot where tyou are looking just ordinary and the next shot which he took 1/2 of a second later that makes you look 20 pounds lighter and 10 years younger. It's amazing! I am looking forward to taking my wife and kids for a family portrait sometime in the future.

I have shot with many a photographer over the years because of my profession. Jerry at FotoAztec Studios is outstanding! He makes you feel at ease immediately, he is professional, creative, and truly cares about his clients. Its refreshing these days to find someone like Jerry! He is so talented with natural lighting. I knew it would be an outstanding session when I saw the initial "test" shots and they were beautiful! I shot with him last April and I plan on another session this year. Jerry is the best kept secret! I highly recommend him!
Jerry was such a pleasure to work with! My experience at his studio was awesome. I am not naturally comfortable in front of the camera but he made it easy. He made me feel totally comfortable. I loved that we sat down and looked at all the photos before I left, just so we knew we had the perfect shot. And I was amazed at how he made me look WITHOUT the use of photoshop! He is the real thing, people. Totally talented, generous, kind and fun. This guy knows what he is doing! - Ashley Inzer www.thelaunchdesigner.com :)
I recently received a gift from my mother--my portrait taken at a professional studio--no picture people or mall glamour shots. I was apprehensive since I HATE getting my picture taken, but from the moment I arrived at FotoAztec Studios, I felt at ease. The photographer, Jerry, made me feel right at home. He did a few test shots, showed my what they looked like and we talked about my photo ideal--I wanted to look like I was modeling in a magazine but didn't think it was possible..Boy was I wrong. The photos he took of me are amazing. Everyone who sees them is blown away and they think I spent WAY MORE than I did. FotoAztec Studios is FANTASTIC! And their prices are reasonable. They also offer lots of really cool products. I really liked the thin wraps and my mom went crazy for my pictures. When we went back to the studio for our viewing we both cried. I didn't think I could look that beautiful. If you need any pictures--they do kids too--go to FotoAztec Studios. You will be blown away.
"Shooting with Jerry Camarillo is something I always look forward to! For years he has taken my dancing shots and this year he has taken my senior graduation photos. I had an amazing time being creative and finding interesting spots in the Venice beach area and I couldn't be happier with the results. It was my first time taking natural shots on location, but Jerry made the entire day fun and easy. My family and I are so pleased with the photos! I will be sending my senior photos with my graduation announcements and will share them with family. I know for a fact that I will call Jerry Camarillo in the future." -Natalie Higgins
I hired FotoAztec Photography for my daughters senior announcements and head shots. Jerry was very personable and made my daughter relax, and brought out the best in her for her session. The photos were superb, and the quality superseded the price. I hunted for other photographers who wanted 3 times the price he charged for a higher quality image in my opinion. I would fully recommend his expertise, and professional eye for any project you are looking for. He is great and makes it a lot of fun.
