Below are some reviews based on my past photography and service.
Unfortunately, I hadn't kept track of reviews until late 2012.

I obtained Justin's headshot photography services and was so impressed with my experience that I felt like writing a review to benefit others. Justin really excels in four areas: Communication, Timeliness, Ease to Work With, and Quality of Work. He was patient with my many questions and we were actually able to set up everything via email which was extremely convenient. I showed up for my appointment (right on time) and he was outside the location waiting for me. He had come ahead of time and set up all of the equipment so it was ready to go and I did not have to wait for anything. He is very easy to work with and not overbearing at all. He knows what looks good but also lets you give input as to what look you are going for. We had some really good looking shots early on- that I would have been 100% happy with- but he had a few suggestions which led to some really great shots. I was in and out in less than an hour and couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks Justin! -CB
I had such a good time taking headshots with Justin. He was super patient, encouraging, and put me at ease doing something that I originally felt really awkward about. Justin was really professional, very timely with all communication and work, and allowed me to have the best experience possible doing this for the first time! -JY
Photo for website and business card. I am very happy and highly recommend Justin. He was able to capture the best of me. Forty years of life pictures, this is the best ever photo. His personal coaching of how to pose is very valuable--for life. Thank you Justin! I highly, highly recommend you call, email, or text and schedule your photo shoot. You will be very happy! -MW
Justin did a great job of capturing a variety of poses and looks in a compact amount of time. Even though I didn't pay for the lesson[*], he still gave me some good pointers, and showed me examples of what looks good in photos. I was very pleased with the results; they were exactly what I need for my actor headshots. -KP (*My headshot service is divided into educating people how to pose which can take several hours and passing on of lots of information on the subject versus just posing a person and making the headshot. I typically offer either service up front.)
I am writing in response to Justin's photo shoot. We recently worked together on photos for a website for a Health Coaching business. Justin was very easy to work with and made the process a lot of fun. He was professional & got the key shots that were necessary. I look forward to working with Justin again in the very near future! - MP
Justin is a world class art photographer who happens to be luckily available locally for Seattle area commercial/promotion projects. Absolutely amazing dramatic engagement with the image requirements, gorgeous result, and great rapport building in the session itself, 1000% excellent. I will be in line to book him for all future promotional photography needs. - SM
Justin recently did a photo-shoot with me, of an unusual sort of model. He was very flexible and easy-going, adapting to this unique situation quite readily. At the same time, he was very professional in his manner and produced some outstanding photos. His familiarity with varied equipment and usage of light combined with his artistic eye were definitely apparent in the final images. Justin was fantastic to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone. - AK
I have had pictures taken with Suyama Images twice. The photos are amazing. He has such a great eye for capturing the moment and an even better eye for capturing the person. From the lighting down to the background, everything is thought about. I use many photos in my portfolio and people are always drawn to his images! I know I will continue to contact Suyama Images in the future. - KS
So versatile! Justin can capture perfectly candid moments in natural settings beautifully as well as posed and prepped. He has a dark mysterious side to his fashion based photography, sometimes with a hint of hummer. He works with amazing and inovative designers in costume and makeup. His quality and frame is excellent and he treats the people he works with with the utmost respect. Justin has a deep passion and excitment for photography, and it shows in every one of his photos and it makes him really fun to work with. - LA
Justin did a photo shoot of my band. The experience was great and the results were beyond awesome. Not knowing a thing about what to wear, how to pose or even where we should do the shoot was not a problem because Justin had it all figured. He helped us feel comfortable, avoid "band photo cliches" and have fun, all without being heavy handed or domineering.
He had the edited photos ready for us in a couple of days and we're using them all over, one might even be in our album art for an album we're planning to release next year. Honestly, I think if anything, Justin should charge more for his services. Once people find out about him, he's going to be booked years in advance. -CS
