The staff was very helpful and made a test print for me on the spot! My order was ready the same day. Highly recommended


I have been using Precision Photos for years, but when I went to get another batch of headshot copies made, I was told by Michael Canizares, the owner, that my negatives were not ...

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/28/2013

Truly terrible customer service. Rude and obnoxious. As a long-time customer, I am especially offended that at the non appreciative attitude I receive when trying to place orders. Will not go back. more

Great place for headshots and postcards 8/15/2011

I have to order my photos from 2 states away, and they were amazing. I got great headshots and postcards, exactly the way I asked, from ""touch ups"" to final product. I will use them again and recommend them to others more

A Great Business For Headshot Reproductions 8/9/2011

I was looking for a place to get my headshots printed and reproduced from my Flash Drive. I heard about Precision Photo and I thought I would give it a try and was very impressed with their service and professionalism. Mike knew his stuff and gave me great pointers regarding the touching up of my headshots. I will gladly give Precision Photos my business and I proudly endorse them for all my headshot and postcard and business care reproductions. more

Wonderful...just wonderful... 8/7/2011

I brought some of my family archive pictures that were falling apart. Some were ripped and others had discoloration on the picture. Not only did they restored the pictures back to their original state, they also provided outstanding customer service! more

Excellent photo restoration & customer service 8/3/2011

I was a bit concerned about the previous reviews, however I went to the studio to have some pictures restored. I spoke to Frank and his customer service was excellent. The turnaround and quality was outstanding. Highly recommended! more

I'm never coming back here!!!!! 7/31/2011

Michael the owner does not care about his customers! He still owes me $49. He took my money several years ago when he gave me an extension over the phone to pick up my head shots. I had a hard time deciding on the final product and told him I needed more time, which he agreed to. I gave him a deposit. Long story.... Bottom line this guy takes your money and does not help at all. He actually said actors are stupid! I am not joking. Why would I take the time to write this review. I totally agree with Elyse. She is right. By the way, it sounds a little to commercial for the review written below me. I think Michael wrote his own review. more

The best kept secret in NYC! 7/5/2011

Holy cow...what a great place! I have no idea who wrote the previous review, but Michael helped me out with the order from start to finish and he was awsome! Between the affordable retouching price and same day service, Precision totally helped me out of a jam with my headshots. The quality was outstanding....highly recommended!!!!! more

Precision is precisely unprofessional 5/3/2011

Absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced. I ordered headshot prints which were delivered to me with an extremely noticeable blue tint - the background was blue, even part of my hair was blue! Not even close to the actual photo tones. I chose Precision because I *thought* they must be good since headshots are part of their specialty. Wrong. I spoke with the owner Michael and expressed how unsatisfied I was with the blue prints that I could certainly not send to any casting director. I mentioned I had the same photo printed by someone else (should have just stuck with them) and it came out beautifully, so I knew the blue tint was not an error in my file, it was Precision's crappy printers. Michael asked me to send one of his blue prints and the nice photo I had printed elsewhere to him, so he could see exactly what I was looking for - Isn't this your profession? You should know I'm looking for a quality print! He offered to send me a new proof and if I liked it, a reprint of my order for $25. No customer should EVER have to pay for a company's mistake. I would also like to note that Michael cut me off and hung up on me! Some customer service. The reprint was barely any better (still had blue tint on hair & background) than the first, so I certainly wasn't paying more. Michael has refused to refund any of my money for the prints that I could do nothing with but trash. DO NOT USE PRECISION PHOTOS! Michael's extremely unprofessional demeanor and obvious disregard to his customer's needs are unacceptable - He deserves no business whatsoever. I highly recommend Grand Photo Solutions or Blue Cube Imaging for your printing needs - they are true professionals!! more

Quick & Convenient 3/3/2011

I stumbled upon Precision on my way to an audition. It is located within a rehearsal studio, next to another rehearsal, and is pretty close to Ripley Grier. Convenient. The owner, Michael, is super helpful. I was undecided on which font I wanted to use to print my name. He had no problem spending ten minutes helping me figure it out. Also, the orders are fulfilled fast. I haven't waited more than 3 days for mine. I especially enjoy that I can get my headshots printed in sets of 25. A boon to the actor low on funds. more

Quick, Professional, User-Friendly 1/14/2011

Precision Photos has been around forever. This is an old line New York City Show Business business and it shows in the fine work they do. The facility is comfortable and has online computers for customer use. Turnaround is very fast, and Michael, the owner, is friendly and very good at multitasking. He has years of experience in this business and knows it inside and out. He also has very helpful advice for customers putting together a headshot package, which he gives while fielding phone calls and entering data on his computer. Yet I always feel I have his full attention and my headshots came out beautifully. I'll be back and back and back again. By the way - Precision Photos also has rehearsal/audition studios and hosts business seminars making this a valuable full service facility. more

My Preferred Place for Headshot Reproductions 1/11/2011

I said it today when picking up my headshot order, and I'll say it again: I can see that Michael Canizares, the owner of Precision Photos, takes pride in his professionalism.\r \r For over 10 years now, I have time and again gone to Precision Photos for headshot reproductions, and every time I have been satisfied with my order as well as the customer service Michael and his staff have provided. He hasn't seem to have changed in this last decade--always professional, always busy, always with a telephone earpiece in his ear handling calls--but somehow, SOMEHOW juggling it all!\r \r My most recent order was different than the past ones. This time I ordered online using their new Java applet. Admittedly, I found the logic of the software a bit confusing, but I figured there was only a slight learning curve before mastering the software. (I think I'll be okay for my next order.)\r \r When I couldn't find out how to use the software properly in a place, I called Michael for guidance. He took 3 of my calls, all very politely, as I asked questions when he most likely was very busy with orders. I completed my order, and Michael called me back so I could confirm the details. For some reason, an online discount code I used didn't make it through, and he kindly made sure it was applied to my order.\r \r How I see headshots, I don't need to spend a fortune on impeccable quality--from working in casting, I've seen how headshots quickly make it into the garbage. While the quality of Precision Photos is not the absolute best in the city, it is 9.5 out of 10 for me. I don't need 10--10 is a waste of my money. 9.5 is fantastic enough, and given the deals (steals!) Precision Photos offers, it's MORE valuable than a 10 for me. That is, Precision Photos is *my* 10.\r \r I've recommended Precision Photos for years, and I will continue to do so. :) more

Fast and efficient 1/10/2011

I love the online headshot editing software! Quick turnaround, efficient, friendly staff! Great quality photos, all in all a solid good deal. more

Great for headshots! 12/28/2010

I've used Precision twice now for printing my headshots and they've turned out great each time! Ordering process is quick and easy, turnaround is super fast, quality is good, service is friendly, and prices definitely beat the competitors! more

Great Service! 12/21/2010

I used Precision Photos for printing my first headshots done in New York and they were very prompt with their service and very helpful when it came to making the headshot as professional looking as possible. I would use them again in a second! more

I've been using Precision Photos for years 12/17/2010

I can't recall one problem I've had with them in all the time I've been going there. I call in my request and the next day they are ready. more

Precision is a misnomer in Precision Photos 12/6/2010

Twice in the last year Precision Photos has lost the files containing my headshot. The first time, (after I had already purchased a batch of headshots from them), while trying to order a batch of postcards they told me that apparently my headshot file had been lost in their move. After days of back-and-forth, emailing them files, I finally had to take the disc back in so that they could create the postcards. At that point they told me that I would never have this problem again since they now had everything on file. Well, they lost it again! I tried to reorder headshots and was told they only had the file for the postcard and couldn't work from that. They said they couldn't find the file and that I would have to e-mail them the file again or bring the disc in again. I related this story to a couple of other actor friends and one of them immediately said, ""Precision Photo is awful. They screwed me once the same way...""lost"" my file."" She recommended I go to Reproductions instead and it looks as if that is what I will have to do. I can't even find my original disc now (with the copy ready headshots on it) and I suspect it was never returned to me from Precision last year when they screwed up the postcards. I'd recommend any place but Precision Photos. more
