Roi is great to work with. I was looking for someone who takes good pictures but not your average photographer who takes the same kind of photos over and over; I wanted him to capture the real me. Since I haven't had portrait photos taken in a long time, I was relying on him for photo locations and poses. He really made me feel at ease and guided me throughout the process. He's both funny and professional. He had an assistant accompany him (I forgot her name) who was really nice. They both made me laugh and I felt very comfortable for the photos. I was on a budget and his prices are very affordable. When I first emailed him, he responded to my questions right away. He didn't charge extra for traveling. Overall, that was the best combination for me: professionalism, awesome photos and within my budget. If you're looking for an amazing photographer, you should totally contact him. He's the best!

I highly recommend GZ Photoz. The atmosphere was welcoming. He asked me what I wanted and he definitely delivered. The finished work is very professional and he knows how to adjust to every moment of the photo session, back ground scenery, poses, music, his make up artist had me looking and feeling flawless. I have been on many photo shoots and never received the feeling of being under the spotlight, it was my moment to shine. Sometimes I would tell photographers not to take pictures of my side profile and they didn't but Curtis Jermany said, don't worry about it and after I reviewed the finished work of my profile pictures, I became enlightened. That profile picture is now posted on my website. Thank you so much. The experience was awesome and I'm looking forward to another session at GZ Photoz.

We have never had better school pictures than when Sharie has taken them. In fact, many people who have visited our house and seen Esmé's and Elsa's preschool pictures have commented on this: "That doesn't look like my school pictures!" That's because Sharie not only manages to catch their natural expressions and joy, but light and set them up so beautifully. The kids are relaxed, happy, and well lit! They are their true selves. We were also surprised that the school picture process involved getting to meet Sharie at the school to view the photos. It was such a pleasure to meet her and to be able to select the photo we liked best. In fact, choosing between all the photos was the hardest part! She captured our kids so beautifully. I wish she could be the photographer for our elementary school! We also hired Sharie to photograph our family and had the same amazingly results and experience. Now we have gorgeous family portraits too! Thank you, Sharie!

My name is Jason. I'm originally from S.L.C., Utah. I moved to the Bay Area a year ago to pursue a career in photography. I have been behind the lens most of my life as a hobby, now it's time to make a living at it. My passion is landscape, scenery and architecture. I also love shooting in B&W and macro. Though I am still "technically" an amateur, I am confident that in a beautifully staged event, or in a natural outdoor setting, I can take some great photos. I love, and take great pride in what I do, and it shows in my work. As a wedding photographer, my goal is not to simply document the occasion, but capture the moments of one of the happiest, and most memorable days in a couple's life. I have some creative editing software, though I'm proud to say that the majority of my photos need little, if any, retouching. I am also available to shoot head shots/portraits, products, and clothing/fashion. I hope to hear from you soon. Jason

Kathleen McCallum is a terrific fine art photographer! My family has been happy to have her chronicle many events, important times in our lives and we are always pleased with her work. I personally have had two boudior sessions with Kathleen. One was solo, the other with my lover. Kathleen was able to make me (us) comfortable and relaxed during the session. We had a great time, many laughs, and the result was beautiful, attractive, sexy images. Instead of studio portraits as my children grew, Kathleen created art to record their landmarks. People are always impressed to see our family gallery full of incredibly insightful and sensitive photos of our family as we moved through the years. Ms. McCallum is a gifted photographer and a fine person to work with- I do recommend!
