I've been modeling for years throughout the U.S. and Europe and Maya is not only a talented artist, she's one of the nicest people you could ever work with. I LOVED the pics she took of me. We've shot together twice already and I can't wait to shoot with her again!

Maya is a great person, an artist of multiple talents, and really easy to work with. She has a great eye, understands different kinds of industry needs, is super understanding of an artist's individual tastes and style and is fun! I really appreciated her thoughtfulness in finding a location that worked with my branding and we had a blast shooting there. Looking forward to more.

I am an actress/model so when I needed new headshots/ portfolio update that were capable of being versatile I knew I was up for a challange. I came across Maya Standel and noticed immediately her usage of natural light. I have shot with dozens of photographers over the years and Maya is one talented artists who also has a fantastic personality! She takes her craft seriously and it radiates through the pictures. I have worked with Maya three times now and will continuely be a repeating customer. The headshots she has taken of me have opened many doors for me and that at the end of the day is all you truely want out of a head-shot or your pictures! She brings so much energy and passion to the shoot you almost forget your "working." Maya is worth every penny :)

Maya is AMAZING! She breathes photography, is such a joy to work with and is a professional in every sense of the word! Her syle is such an easy, enjoyable photo session, her eye is insane and in a good way! I would love to work with her again and look forward to seeing her new images when she adds them to her website!

Maya is great. Easy to work with. AND reasonably priced. Honestly, she has taken some of my favorite Editorial/Fashion shots EVER. She does great outdoor shots. (I have not shot with her indoors yet). She is down to earth, makes you comfortable, AND she is a great stylist to boot. She helped with all the jewelry and accessories for my shoot! Some photographers do great work but are hard to work with. Not the case with Maya. Love, love, love this lady. And I'm a tough critic. I would recommend her to any friend or stranger.

I did a couples editorial shoot on location in Pasadena with Maya. I had a lot of fun, the pictures are beautiful, and I got them right away! I would most certainly shoot with her again. I love her eye for fashion and photography.

I have shot with Maya several times and my pics always turn out great! She has an amazing relationship with that camera of hers. She is amazing to work with, I laughed the entire shoot! I would highly recommend her if you are looking for headshots and or to update your book!

Maya works really hard to give you quality photos. This photographer is very organized and makes sure to have a complete team for big shoots. I think Maya's work is going places and I would def recommend her if you are looking for photos that are different from the everyday headshot. The person behind the camera as well as the outcome photos are very important, and in this case, Maya stands out on both. I would work with her again!
