Al was amazing. He filmed Monday and we had the footage 24 hours later. Fantastic quality and a very polite person. We will definitely work with him again.

I am truly disappointed in Al Pervis and his inability to communicate and deliver his photography services. I hired Al on March 31st to deliver a video by April 15 of 2 apartment communities in Phoenix. He took the video and still images (supposedly) and then disappeared. I believe the term used these days is GHOSTED. I called, emailed, texted, and used the Thumbtack messenger to try and communicate with Al. He finally responded and said he was called to National Guard duty and forgot his phone and that he would get it done tonight. I applauded his service and was very lenient about the deliverable date. Since that communication.....ABSOLUTE SILENCE. If I could get the footage, I would put it together myself! Now our investor packet has gone out and I've got nothing. DO NOT HIRE THIS PHOTOGRAPHER. I am so disappointed and frustrated because I tried and tried and tried to get Al to communicate. CRICKETS. (I can also see that he checks his messages on Thumbtack and doesn't respond to me).

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Rule 1) All invoices must be PAID-IN-FULL prior to delivery of any final media products. Rule 2) In some cases, a minimum deposit of 50% of the cost of the project is require prior to the start of services. Rule 3) We operate using written contracts and "Property Release" agreements. Rule 4) Our payment options are: Cash, Credit Card, Cash app, Zelle app, and Square app Rule 5) For all non-local client's with projects outside of our local area, Our “Thumbtack quote” does not include our standard “per diem” charge based on your job site location. This is determined during consultation and totaled in the contract. Note: Our Thumbtack rates are generally 20 - 30% cheaper than our standard rates, as our Thumbtack clients make up only 20% of our general business. Rate discounts are already applied.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Step 1) Agree to job details. Step 2) Meet with client (if local) to finalize job details where we explain our workflow process and any related restrictions based on the job site location. Step 3) We accept payment (50% or full, based on contract/agreement). Step 4) We the perform services requested. Step 5) We provide final deliverable upon receipt of final payment. Note: Some final products can be delivered within 24 hours of completion of job, dependent on media editing requirements. A project that only consists of photography is usually quicker to edit. Video editing may require more time due to formatting and video rendering procedures. INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS: We use Verifly, Inc. (1 million in liability coverage). .
