Laura Burke (that being me) has been shooting Los Angeles actors for over 25 years now and still loving it!

My office is located at The Lot on Formosa Ave which has been home to many well known productions. It’s a great place to shoot since you are surrounded by a sheltered and energizing environment.

I love to create different characters that accentuate my clients talents with lighting and environment choices. Call me and we’ll tawk about your talents!

I've shot with a lot of photographers here in L.A. Shot with Laura a few years ago.Nice enough but photos were very generic.Didn't get me any auditions because they were too plain. She's a good photographer and has taken great shots but didn't take any of me. I was disappointed with shoot.

Laura was a pleasure to work with. Not only is she a professional with a great eye, she also makes for a fun relaxed environment so you feel comfortable and get the best shots. Her pricing is very reasonable and you get a lot of bang for your buck! I'm so pleased with the quality of her work. She's great with natural light. Definitely worth hiring!

Working with Laura Burke was a treat! She has a positive energy that is very inspiring. She tells it like it is and it helps you with your photo shoot! I have never had a woman photographer before and I am so glad I decided to work with her : )

Laura is the best!! She is super fun, hard working and her work is fantastic. Her shots are pretty much the only ones that get me work, she captures my essence and presents it to the industry well. I always get complements on my shots with Laura. I've tried other photographers, but I'm going back to her. As a matter of fact, we are shooing my new headshots tomorrow!!

LAURA BURKE is absolutely THE BEST photographer in Hollywood. She's done my headshots for more than 10 years. In this industry, it is important that your headshot stand out from the pack. Back when everyone was doing B&W headshot, Laura recommended color. That year, I got more auditions than ever and book 2 national commercials and 3 national television shows. I know that her creativity and experience were the reason I got so many auditions!She's a straight-shooter, and that makes the pictures real, effervescent, and effective.5 stars without reservation!

Laura Burke is quite possibly the best photographer in LA. I have worked with her at least 5 times and always get great headshots. She is creative and easy to deal with. Only great things can come from shooting with her. Do it. You won't be disappointed.

Laura is truly caring and so professional. She's been at this for a while, and really know what actors need to get from their headshots. Easily one of the top photographers in LA, if not the country for the professional actor.

If you don't get your headshots from Laura Burke you won't work in this town!Laura doesn't just give you pictures, she gives you her expertise in the field, her creative eye, and most important her time! You have the WHOLE day with Laura so you will not be rushed. This personal service shows you how much Laura cares about giving you the highest quality pix out there AND she shoots in RAW. What does that mean? Most photographers shoot in jpeg which means you can not go into the photograph and make appropriate touch ups. jpeg photos are CHEAP! Thumbs way up for Laura!

What i love about Laura is that she meets with you a few days before to go over wardrobe, what you want, what your agent/manager is looking for, colors, feel, likes, dislikes; and through this seems to get a feel for you as an individual. She truly takes the extra effort needed to result in headshots of great calibre. She knows every nook and cranny in LA for backgrounds and you are sure to get what you want.

I been shooting with Laura for years now. Why? Ever since I've shot with her I have booked; commercial, film and television. She has an artistic eye that captures your true character. That has gotten me in the door which we all know leads to booking a job. If you want to be called in for a casting.... book a shoot with Laura. She is stellar!!!

Laura has done all my headshots for years. She also shoots many of my students. Always a good product and she is a joy to be around. She spends time with you as well, which a lot of photographers don't do. No in and out with Laura. You always get a good shot.

Here's the thing about Laura: she's truly an artist. She's the best photographer in town because somehow she's able to shoot you so that you look exactly like yourself but better. Don't get me wrong, you won't be made up to look like someone else--she'll just find your essence and capture it in the photo. You'll see a portrait of your true self when you've finished your shoot and you'll get work from it. Plus, she's funny as hell. You couldn't find better...

I've met and worked with many headshot photographers in this town and i can honestly say Laura is amazing amazing amazing. She really makes it feel like its your day. She helps you prepare with a preshoot meeting where you go through looks and discuss clothing options and get to know eachother. I was extremely stressed and hate having my photos taken and meeting her this way really helped me relax and look forward to it rather than have anxiety the night before. I knew what to expect. She uses great make up artists that really work well to make you feel comfortable and obviously know what there doing. Unlike most photographers in this town that either shoot super quickly or try and squish a dozen clients in a day Laura makes the day exclusive to you, taking her time and finding the right environment to shoot each of your looks in. She also has great techniques and helps you get comfortable in front of the camera. She goes through your photos with you throughout your shoot which i think is pivotal because you see what you should and shouldn't be doing and you can make sure you nailed the look you wanted. I learnt a lot throughout my session and am so grateful she took the time to go through these things with me.Shes a very actor friendly photographer that obviously cares, and it shows in her work:)Shes funny, loving down to earth and honest! What more can you ask for?Im a very happy client and have had sooooo much feedback on my headshots it definitely made a difference to my career!Kate

I have to say, I just shot with Laura yet again. The shoot was awesome. YET AGAIN. We get the full day together, unlike other photogs that schedule multiple shoots in one day. She can do all the boring backdrop stuff, but she doesn't. If you want pictures with a story, with colors, textures and backgrounds.. something that really catches the eye and pops, then you shoot with the best. I've heard Laura is one of the top 10 headshot photographers in LA, and I believe it!!

I've shot with Laura many times and have always been impressed with the artistry and quality of her work. Not to mention, she's an all around wonderful person to work with. I've shot with other photographers in my career and Laura's work always rises to the top.

Shooting with Laura on "The Lot" was such a wonderful experience. Great energy! She is so cool and understanding and most importantly listens to what you are looking for. She gives great advice and when shooting shows you what your photos look like and what changes you may need to make to capture the "look" your looking for.I highly recommend Laura whether your just starting out your career or looking for a new photographer. I look forward to shooting with her again.Actor-Brad Weber

Laura puts so much time and effort before you even shoot! She goes over everything from looks, colors, attitudes, what your representation want. Most photographers just touch on these issues. I have shot with 5 photographers over the years, I just wish I met Laura sooner. I'm absolutely thrilled with my shots. Oh yeh and so are my reps!! The work speaks for itself.

Laura is the greatest! She takes her time with you, not only on the day of the shoot but days before. She will call you and go over everything you want for your photos and will be needing. She inspires you to become the person you need to be for your photo you need to get. She is amazing!

I have taken many head shots in my career and I will never shoot with another photographer. Laura does not use a formula she sees the actor and gets the person she is shooting.
