This photographer was a saint to work with. He was prompt, courteous and professional. He gave us quality pictures that we will save for a lifetime. This won’t be the last time I enlist him for photography services. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.Oct 9, 2018Verified
Haji responded immediately to my request for a photographer. He listened to my vision for the type of photos I wanted for the occasion. He chose a great venue at a perfect time of day for outdoor lighting along with my added request for no hiking from car to site. (Do to recent surgery). The shoot itself was great and not very time consuming. Haji had researched some ideas and poses for my James Bond themed night. I received my requested disc of the pictures less than 24 hrs from the photo shoot. Great experience would highly recommend.Apr 18, 2018Verified
Our family pictures were planned for beluga point .. the day of pictures a storm started heading across the turnagain arm with high winds. Haji contacted us as we were headed out of town and said the winds were 40 mph and we needed to relocate. Haji knew my dad was only in town for the holidays and he knew how important it was for us to have these pictures taken so he redirected us to westchester lagoon. The day was cloudy with limited light due to short hours of daylight in December yet he was able to capture these beautiful moments with my family. He suggested Red because of the contrast with the snow and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Classic Visions Photography for a fantastic photo shoot.Jan 7, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Portrait photo shoots start at $225 for a one-on-one session and go up to $500 based on a client's needs. Having worked in the modeling industry and having been a model myself helps with the poses and makes clients feel at ease. Homes start at $275 per house, based on a 2,000 sq. ft. home. Larger homes take more time and thus are priced accordingly. Resorts are quoted on a travel and time basis, plus travel expenses, meals and accommodations.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I consult with the customers first asking what their photographic needs are. I discuss their ideas, expectations and preferences so the shoot goes smoothly. Color combinations are very important. I prefer natural tones with contrast. (No florescent colors because they are not found in nature.) Red is also very powerful in photos since it draws the eye to the image.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?For 10 years I worked for Remax photographing their "Trophy Homes" in upscale Colorado ski towns. The state of Colorado's Park Service hired me to photograph the state's parks and activities. My time is also donated to pet shelters photographing animals up for adoption. Making any and all animals look adorable is a joy and privilege!
