"James Kriegsmann's work is so exceptional that I would never consider another photographer. He is truly an artist and a craftsman."
- Janet Houston
"James Kriegsmann is truly amazing! He is so talented and experienced and it shows tremendously through his photographs. I am a very shy person but I was so comfortable during our shoot and his direction made it seem effortless. I now have so manny amazing shots to chose from. His wife, the make up artist, is fantastic!"
- Alexandra Sebai
"I have been going to James for at least nine years. He has accommodated me in my need for various looks from corporate to ethnic to cabaret entertainer. His sessions are collaborative, relaxed and subsequently satisfying. I always feel confident in recommending him to my fellow artists."
- Juanita Howard
"James is a wonderful photographer who made me feel very comfortable with his open, friendly manner. I felt I was able to just be myself there, and allow him to capture that with his own talent and artistry. I always get very positive reactions from the headshot and never hesitate to recommend him others. Thanks, James! :)"

"Ok, please allow me set the record straight. I have had close to a dozen professional photographers shoot publicity shots for me in NYC for over 30 years. Yet it wasn't until James Kriegsmann Jr. photographed me that I was "truly" happy and excited by the results. Yes, anyone can buy an expensive camera, set up fancy 3 point "soft" lighting and then enthusiastically utter phrases to you during the shoot like, “Beautiful,” “That’s it,” “Perfect,” “You’ve got it now” and call themselves a photographer. Unfortunately, that’s’ just not enough. From James Kriegsmann’s wonderful “pre-shoot” customer service posture on the phone, to his thoroughly professional and attentive bedside manor during the actual shoot, to his “post-shoot” delivery of materials and follow up calls to ensure that the customer is actually satisfied, he is a dream come true. Don’t even consider another NYC photographer. Submitted by: Jerry Castaldo, www.jerrycastaldo.com"

"James (Jim) Kriegsmann Jr. has been taken my headshots since 1980. They have always been exactly what I wanted and needed to work continuously in this very competitive and challenging industry. James manages to always stay on top of the latest technology, looks and trends. His sessions are always about you and the results are remarkable and realistic. Thanks, Jimmy!"
- Cynthia Reitman
"Jimmy has taken my headshots for I guess over three decades and most recently this past year. I am writing this in gratitude and respect for his services. My headshots have always received excellent professional comments. His photo sessions have always been comfortable experiences and I hope to repeat them. His are the most reasonable and least pretentiously costly headshots around. Sincerely, Martin Shakar."

"Jim photographed me earlier this year (2011) and I am enormously pleased with the results! His work is, indeed, professional ... in all the best senses of the word. Also, the price was, surprisingly, very fair ... which in this economy is a definite plus!"
- Chris Donovan (AEA, SAG, AFTRA)
"I have long been a client of James for many years, I strongly encourage any performer to have full confidence in the finest work done by this great photographer. He truly captures the spirit of the actor."
- Joe Caruso
"I love being shot by this man - He has provided me with lasting and great shots repeatedly and makes a shoot a fun and relaxing experience!"
"For my fifteen years I've walked in and out of the industry, but I've always returned to Jim to update my headshot. He has the pitch perfect photographer's instinct that can only come with a lifetime in the biz and the wonderful history of his father's work. I've referred a number of friends to Jim who have all been very happy."
"James is professional, and always captured my character types EVERY single time I need new headshots. He got me in the door to Hollywood."
