    Hugh has shared his work with me. His photographic expertise is superior. All photos in his gallery were of exceptional quality. His work is outstanding. Model poses, creativity of expression and light and color quality fantastic.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Lately, it's been Real Estate Photography. A little before that, it was Banquet Photography. Before that, when I lived in california, I did a huge amount of Portfolio and Headshot work for Hollywood types.

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

A. [this is very similar to the 'secret' box]

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. This is both a 'secret' and advice I would like to share with the general public: You can go to Walmart and pay $300 for a fine "Point & Shoot" camera, take your own photos, and then back to Walmart for prints, and get technically fine results. However, what will ALWAYS be missing is my expertise, my experience, my artistic and creative approach, and of course, my over 40 years of 'doing it'!

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. With Photography, or any artistic endeavor, all the customer needs to know is (a) Exactly what they ultimately want, and (b) the ability to convey that information to the Photographer.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I majored in Fine Art prior to switching to Photography my third (3rd) year of college and that 'touch', plus my natural creativity, gives my work a uniqueness. Naturally, the many years I have been involved in Photography also gives my work the 'edge' so many customers are looking for.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. As a creative person, Photography gives me the opportunity to rightfully place my creativity upon others' lives. In this way, I share myself with them.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. "Why are your prices a bit higher than most other local photographers"? My answer is the same reason a Mercedes is more costly than a Ford. That is, experience and quality.

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. In my long experience, I have far too many to relate here.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. [this is very similar to the 'secret' box]

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I switched to Photography after I found out just how seduceible the general public can be when it comes to Fine Art. I found out that people were much too easily influenced by a 'huxter'.

Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.

A. If I admitted to anything other than "All of Them", I would be acknowledging that allowed second rate work to bear my name. I do not and I will not.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. Actually, I just finished over two (2) additional years of study in my field. Prior to that, I took a seminar on Advanced Wedding Photography. As a result, my wedding coverage is unlike any in this aera.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. The word 'latest' no longer is appropriate inasmuch as digital equipment is pretty much 'outdated' as soon as it hits the market. Cameras today are actually 'computers that take pictures'. Fortunately, professional equipment doesn't suffer quite as much of the 'outdating' as rapidly as consumer equipment does. In professional equipment, it's not just megapixels that count.

Q. Describe your most recent project, what it involved, how much it cost, and how long it took.

A. [not relative]

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

A. My pricing is readily 'spelled out' on my website's Prices page.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. Learn-work-learn-work- and learn some more.

Q. Write your own question and answer it.

A. What time is it? Time to seek a professional; it's OK to 'price shop' for a product- NEVER 'price shop' for a service; there's too many variables. Good luck!
