“Andy’s combined experience in both acting and photography makes him extraordinary to work with. He's got a warm, friendly energy and was able to communicate direction clearly. All pauses and breaks within our photoshoot were filled with dancing and laughter! Andy has a great sense of humor and a terrific eye.”

-Crystal L.



A headshot can do more than show others who you are… it can reveal your possibilities to yourself. You are your most important audience, and we would love to prove this to you!  We are thrilled you are considering A Strong Photo for your actor and corporate headshot needs, and we cannot wait to work with you. Let’s do this!



Are you interested in studio or lifestyle portraits? Snapshots of you and your family? Curated photographs of a model showcasing your brand? A Strong Photo would love to work with you to create a bookmark in this chapter of your life, and make dynamic art together that encapsulates an era!


“Andy was great! I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and loved how he began the session with warm-up exercises. He is professional and accommodating, always making sure I was comfortable in front of the camera so we could get the best photos possible. I highly recommend him!”

Welcome to

A Strong Photo,

a Bay Area based portrait photo studio

founded by photographer

Andy Strong.


I believe in dancing in public and smiling at strangers and conquering vertigo via exposure. I love it when people share themselves with me, I love how when you put a shy person in front of a camera they’ll stick out their tongue, how when you give over to the camera you are really giving to your future selves. It’s an awesome feeling, to be able to see things that the mirror misses. That maybe you hadn’t thought to share with your closest friends. And then I’m there, behind this future making black box, in absolute awe of the situation. I think I just saw your soul. I think you just broke on through like you were Jim Morrison. I think we just made something magical. And the best part is, there is this little glimpse of that moment that we get to keep. Where the air has gotten all still-frame and we get to look back and breathe it in again and again. When it’s good, it’s wonderful. When it’s wonderful, it’s life-changing. A defining split second. Who do you want to be today? Let’s go there.

with Love and gratitude,
