Introduction: Thank you so much for checking out my profile here on Thumbtack. I hope we can meet in person. My photography company, Berger PhotoPix, is your best choice for photographic services with nearly all projects completed and ready for the client within 24-hours, and most of the time it’s a lot faster than that. I have been a photojournalist for over thirty years, concluding with the Los Angeles Times’ Community Newspapers when COVID forced their closure. That photojournalistic instinct to tell a story with a beautiful picture is present in a lot of the photos I create. My base rate for your job may start at $200 for each hour. This includes booking, the photo session, editing, and the photos will be uploaded for you to download. You can pay at any time, but the agreed rate must be paid before a link to the images is sent to you. I have a wide range of photographic talents that include, but are not limited to: ON-LOCATION PORTRAITURE AND HEADSHOTS o Families o Proposal o Engagement o Personal o Graduate o Corporate o Sports EVENTS o Weddings o Anniversaries o Corporate/non-profit o Holiday and birthday parties o Quinceanera/Sweet-16 parties o Colleges and university functions o News coverage o Public relations events SPORTS o Action o Leagues o Portraits o Head shots o Teams o Races REAL ESTATE o MLS quality photography o 3D scans/virtual tours o Floorplans o Commercial/residential RESTORATION AND SCANNING o Damaged o Faded o Color shift o Repair o Restore o Torn o Scratched o Creased o Scanning (prints, slides, negatives) o Batch scanning of negatives If all of this looks good, please send me a lead. I look forward to hearing from you.

This was such an easy photo shoot! I have two little kids and was so worried we wouldn’t get a good family picture but sure enough we got some great shots! Tim has a vision for a great photo in a matter of seconds and makes everyone comfortable. Don’t hesitate to book him! And a bonus, our photos were sent to us same day, that’s the quickest turnaround ever! Thanks Tim for a great shoot

He gave me the absolute best price, picked up and dropped off my originals at the door, completed the work in just a few hours, and did a fantastic job. I will definitely use Berger PhotoPix for all future photo scanning and repair needs.

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

    The prices you see are what I believe is fair compensation for a photographer who has the skills. The photographic categories you see in my profile, such as weddings and events, portraits, corporate, real estate, etc. are all strengths of mine and I assure you that hiring me will yield results that you will truly appreciate. However, if there is a quote you see from me that exceeds your expectations, I encourage you to reach out to me to discuss options. My phone number, that I include in my initial response, is my cell phone and you can call or text me.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Formally, my training in photography started when I was a pre-teen when I sold enough boxes of chocolates to earn a point-and-shoot camera, my first ever camera. I’ve been involved with photography ever since, including photojournalism courses in college that lead me to my first job as a staff photographer for a newspaper. That started a career in photojournalism that lasted thirty years until the pandemic struck and closed the newspaper I worked at last. Currently, I teach photojournalism at a community college, and have started this freelance business on Thumbtack to share my robust experience with clients.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I first started selling my work in high school by taking advantage of enthusiastic students at a state basketball tournament by selling photomasks of the head coach for $1 each. From there, I’ve worked with event photo companies, portrait companies, commercial photographers, and as you have already read, newspapers. I’ve been published in a few magazines, like Newsweek, but my work has predominantly been published in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Pasadena Star-News, Los Angeles Times, Glendale News Press, Burbank Leader, and La Cañada Valley Sun.
