    David was able to accommodate a short-notice request for professional head shots for me, and I couldn't be more pleased with the photos. He made the session stress-free and fun. Great service!

    This was my first experience hiring someone to take headshots of me. He was excellent, and guided me through it and made me comfortable. Using his headshot I have included it on my LinkedIn profile and my connections have sky-rocketed. I know this has a lot to do with the quality of work David has done. I cannot recommend him high enough.

    David was a perfect choice for me. He prepared me well prior to meeting, then made me feel "at home" in his studio. He's methodical and makes shot selection a breeze. I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend David.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Before deciding on a photographer, look closely through their portfolio. Viewing small photos on a computer monitor can hide lots of flaws like photos that aren’t actually sharp enough to make quality prints, or, blemishes that look subtle on that tiny image on your monitor but become glaringly bad on even a small 5x7 print.
You should look for consistent quality in the photographer’s portfolio too. With today’s cameras, anyone that clicks the shutter enough times will eventually end up with a photo that “looks nice”. That’s probably a bad percentage for you to gamble on though. And it’s a really bad gamble if you’re relying on that person to photograph a special moment that won’t ever happen again.
Is everything in the photographer’s portfolio “Photoshopped” with special effect filters? It may be a style and there’s nothing wrong with that if it’s done in a style you like. But you should take a close look at the portfolio to make sure those special effects aren’t being used to put some “wow” gloss over what would otherwise be poor work.
And, along those same lines, the word “retouched” is very subjective. What one photographer may call retouching; another photographer might think is not enough and another photographer may think it’s too much. And then there are some that think that running some cool color changing Photoshop filter is their version of “retouching”. Again, you should look carefully at the photographer’s portfolio. It’s also probably a good idea to ask them what they mean when they say “retouched”.
