“To a phenomenal photographer and creative artist whose inspiration and talents took a raw motivated actress-in-the-making to new heights. Clayton Hall, photographer and owner of Empire West Studios, has the “Right Stuff” to make it all happen. The photo shoot I experienced was exhilarating and lasted the whole day, but yet a process I would do over and over again to get the adrenalin rush and excitement I felt while Clayton created and sculpted my three looks for commercial, hipster and drama/glamour. From beginning to end, Clayton’s team of professionals were top notch. Many thanks to Barbara Muller, hair and make-up artist and creative director; Barney, Killian and DK for photography support. The looks we created together were impressive and current to the film industry market. My portfolio reflects Clayton’s creativity and artistic talents which I’ve not seen in other studios. I highly recommend Clayton and his team to anyone seeking an opportunity in modeling or acting!! Many thanks for a fantastic photoshoot!!” –LYN AKERS


“Clayton,everyone loved Alexa’s pictures. Got nothing but wonderful comments about them. They are awesome!!” –MICHELLE MOONEY


“My portfolio blows everybody away! They like my face painting, they love the models – but they are BLOWN AWAY by your photography! Everybody loves your ARTISTIC PHOTOGRPAHY!! They are blown away by the richness of colors, the depth of the colors and the clarity of the photos. “What kind of camera is he using? His work is amazing! OMG!!” Before I left for Portland , Oregon , end of June, I had a face and body painting class with Pashur (my mentor). I showed him the portfolio you gave me and he LOVED your photography too! He works with a photographer in Las Vegas, but he said your photographs are incredibly RICH and Striking. He said you would make anyone’s artwork classy and he hopes I appreciate co-working with another artist such as yourself. I want you to know, I DO appreciate working with you! Your photography is what makes my work come alive. After the model washes it off, the face painting still exists because of Clayton Hall, Photographer Extraordinaire!” –NANCY KARTOON-Face & Body Artist Extraordinaire!
