My 17-year-old went to Jay for his senior yearbook portrait. He came back full of praise for Jay and mentioned at least half a dozen times that he had enjoyed the session and how nice Jay was. When we received the proofs the very next day, I was impressed by the way Jay had captured my son's moods in every shot--and my son is moody. Jay's photography makes my son look classy, relaxed, and friendly. I cannot say enough about the quality of Jay's work and his quick delivery. Thank you Jay! I'm next for my portrait to be taken by you. Can't wait!Oct 3, 2018VerifiedJohn B.'s reply
Su, thank you very much. It was a pleasure photographing your son and I’m looking forward to working with you and your family in the near future. Cheers, Jay
Jay Billups has always been my go-to guy for anything that has to do with pictures. He always works with what it is that you are going for, whether it's your standard headshot or an artistic pursuit. He helps you relax, collaborates with you, isn't afraid to brainstorm ideas, and will undoubtedly surpass your expectations. When it comes between making a decision between Jay and somebody else, choose Jay every single time.Jan 25, 2018VerifiedJohn B.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We determine my pricing mostly by project time - how long it will take to complete and satisfy the customers requirements. Our initial quote is based on the project details which we're first presented. The final quote can change after our first conversation. However, it will never go up after the projects starts. I'm aware that price can be a primary concern and I'm willing to discount prices at times. I sometime offer discounts when training new employees. You'll still receive the same high quality service. Building long term relationships is more important than profit from an individual job.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new customer communication, both ways, is always key. I prefer meeting in person or at least having a phone conversation. I believe it's crucial for any new customer to know that I value their input and I will do my best to satisfy their specific requirements.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?At San Diego State I majored in industrial art, which covered photography, design and graphics. I apprenticed for a year with portrait photographer. Currently, I take recurring online courses via Lynda.com to stay up-to-date with video, design and photography trends. I'm expert level with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator.
