4 reviews Top-of-the-Line! I had the most amazing photoshoot with SpinKick Pictures. Brian Thomas is disarming, caring, and absolutely brilliant at what he does. His experience is obvious. He understands lighting, and composition and knows exactly what to say to get the best out of you. I wanted someone who knew how to shoot a variety of skin tones. He's got that too! I have so many photos to choose from that I am overwhelmed in the best way possible. From editorial pictures to headshots, we covered it all in one go. Whether you're a beginner needing something to start the journey or an old pro needing a new look, SpinKick is your company! I've been in the entertainment industry as a performer onstage and a choreographer/producer behind the scenes for nearly 40 years and this was one of the best shoots ever. I will treasure these images forever and I'll certainly be back for more. See two of my headshots on this post and I have many, many more. Thank you so much, SpinKick!

1 review Quite a GREAT experience. Brian was totally empathic and really really helpful to me, to have confidence and make as a result this beautiful photoshoot. He made me feel secure and beautiful and every moment. His advices were precise and helpful to me in every moment. He took cake pretty much of the light for this beautiful result. One of my best experience in a photoshoot. Thanks again Brian for making me feel comfortable in every moment. THANKS AGAIN. Alejandro
Incredibly professional and creative environment. Brian is a skilled photographer, you will leave the studio happy 😊
Amazing work! Brian took time to set up the shots and lighting beforehand to get exactly what I had requested. Went out of his way to research the types of roles I can play. So so amazing!! This was money well spent and I’m so happy! Thank you SO MUCH!!

I am a very picky person and most photographers i went to in the past weren't really able to capture my best side and/or place my essence into 1 single portrait...well that was before i met BRIAN THOMAS! He is beyond amazing. His professionalism, knowledge and care is what every artist should experience when working with someone in that field. I know that i will be using SpinKick Pictures for the foreseeable future! I am so grateful i found him! Thank you Brian!

I’m a personal trainer and I hired Brian to do a photo shoot with a small video for the renewal of my website. He did an outstanding job with the whole project. He took into consideration every critique or worry I had and made into a truly collaborative experience so I could get what I pictured in my head. I would definitely work with him again!
I find it very special when two artists have a safe space to collaborate and make magic. And one of the best environments is where both people run with one another's crazy ideas and give them an opportunity for breath. That is how I feel about working with Brian. He is open to imagination, he is patient during the process, and he offers his own creativity when sparked with an idea. It also takes an individual who has an eye when it comes to photography and direction. Since Brian is an artist that dabbles in many avenues, he is able to see the human form in a different way than most. He is able to capture commercial or switch to a more artistic approach; he knows lighting, movement, and is a brilliant concept designer; and he is able to offer guidance during a shoot which is very important to a project's success especially if you find yourself unsure of what to do in the moment. I recommend working with this human being if you are new to the industry, if you are seasoned and need to venture into a different evolution of yourself, if you know what you want and you need someone who can capture that idea even if it is in raw form, or if you simply want an experience or product that is worth the money spent. The energy he brings to his work, the kindness he treats all individuals with, his professionalism and knowledge in the field of art, and his dedication to having a wonderful product outweighs any money you could spend during the process. He is a GUARANTEE!!

My SpinKick Pictures experience was awesome! BT you are so incredibly kind! Thank you for your hospitality and everything you do! I thoroughly enjoyed my entire photoshoot process and I appreciate all of the special treatment, direction, and advice! I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you! I can't wait until I have the chance again!
I felt very welcomed and safe to be myself. The services delivered exceeded my expectation and I was absolutely ecstatic about the final result. If you are someone looking to have a genuine connection with you work and bring out your authentic voice/brand, then this place is just for you. Highly Recommend!!

Working with Brian and his producer (Brian) is an absolute dream. Truly the epitome of professionalism, creativity, and understanding. I trust Brian with all of my photos. He knows exactly how to capture your personality on camera. Both Brian’s listen deeply to your creative vision and do everything they can to make it happen absolutely seamlessly. The quality of my photos are incredible and I’m grateful Brian and Brian helped me shine! I felt comfortable, confident, and supported the entire shoot. These two are a gift! Thank you ❤️❤️❤️
Professional! Friendly! Fun! Comfortable to work with!!
Knowledgeable about photography but also the art he is photographing (TKD, Dance, etc.). Hope to be able to do so again!
Loved working with Brian! It was such a great shoot! Such a fun time and AMAZING photos. Thank you again! I highly recommend for anyone who needs photos for any reasons! I am a dancer, and it was 10/10!

In the past I’ve felt self conscious in front of the camera, but Brian made me feel completely comfortable and free to explore. We had unlimited looks and the whole day so I went in feeling confident that we would get the shots I needed. He also made me feel very involved after the photo shoot in the selection and editing process. He truly wants you to be happy with the results and is not one of those photographers that just rolls through one client after the next with no personal involvement. Thank you Brian!!
Brian is fun to work with! He genuinely cares about making your vision come true and is great to bounce ideas with. I appreciate his expertise and professionalism, he is an artist in every sense. I'm very happy with my shots and already looking forward to more in the future :)

Great experience for all students! More school owners (of all kinds) should consider having Brian Thomas for their photo shoot events!

Working with Brian was the best, he is amazingly talented and so much fun to work with! Honestly, it was such an incredible experience for both my son and me! Brian did headshots for my 9 year old son, he had patience and took the time to educate both me as the mom and my son. He explained what would work best from clothing (in a call prior to coming in), to posing, to what he was doing with the camera. Brian really took his time to make sure we felt prepared, were comfortable and he didn’t stop until he got the perfect shot! (With lots of laughs in between) Brian got so many incredible shots, my only concern was how to choose! His studio is beautiful with space for dressing/hair/make up and centrally located whether travelling within NY or NJ. If you want AMAZING shots along with a day full of fun and excitement, I would recommend Brian every time!
Every step of the process was smooth and easy. I love that Brian did a pre-photo shoot zoom session so we could talk about my visions and what I wanted.
Brian made me feel so comfortable while shooting and gave awesome directions. I felt like I could be myself, and the photos reflected that.
Brian sent me all of my photos quickly, so I could choose the photos I wanted edited.
There isn’t anything I would change about the process. Brian is a professional, AMAZING at what he does, and an absolute joy to work with. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
Brian Thomas is super talented and creative! He is patient, easy-going, and a total pleasure to work with. His beautiful e-commerce photos significantly improved the aesthetic of my website, and his lifestyle brand video is a huge hit with my audience! I highly recommend working with Brian!! He is the BEST!!

The best. Spinkick Pictures has done wonderful photo and video work for our production company. A partnership we certainly appreciate. Looking forward to our next project together. Thanks, BT!
I love working with Brian Thomas. He's always open to creatively collaborating in making my projects look their best, allowing me to express myself as an artist.
When it comes to directing my image there is no one I trust more than Brian, He has supported me and my vision for the past 10 years. He really knows how to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera, which helps give me the confidence to be my authentic self.

Brian Thomas is truly the best of the best. He made me feel super comfortable and confident. Turnaround time was very quick, and I am in love with him! His creativity is cutting edge and he is driven to excellence! Truly an artist in every sense of the word.
I've had the good fortune of doing many TV, radio and print appearances and interviews, which means I've worked with many producers and video directors. I can tell you Brian Thomas is one of the BEST I've ever worked with! What separates Brian from everyone else is not only his background and experience, but his caring heart for your vision and project. I've NEVER met anyone behind the camera who TRULY cares about your success as much Brian. If you want your story and vision to be told in your authentic voice and become a message that is TRULY you and makes a difference in the world, then do yourself a HUGE favor and forget looking anywhere else. Work with Brian today! You will be SO grateful you did!
