    Top Flyt has done amazing work with my company Open Kanvas! Every time he arrives early, brings full layout of his own equipment and gets the content back to me quickly without any issues. His website even helped us promote our shows and bring an X-Factor to our events. Thank you so much!

    About this pro

    My name is Dumisani Maraire Jr. and I am the owner and lead photographer of Top Flyt Media, LLC. Pushy, obnoxious people are annoying, but it seems a lot of photographers skipped that memo. They'll bark out orders throughout their photo shoots which tend to be an ego building exercise for them instead of a special moment captured for you. What sets me apart is the quality of my service which is built upon years of experience in five-star hospitality. I like to spoil my clients by taking lots of pictures and all of my packages include unlimited pictures and looks. At the same time, I never forget that the final product is for my clients, and not for myself, so I put you first. I make sure I listen carefully to your needs to produce the highest quality images at the most affordable rates. I also meticulously pay attention to detail. Many photographers forget that the small things matter just as much as the big ones, and sometimes even more so. I believe that there are no dumb questions, and only dumb mistakes, so I take time to find out as much 'boring' information as possible ahead of the shoot in order to minimize any disappointment after the shoot. In the rare event that you are not satisfied, I will also do everything within my means and power to guarantee your satisfaction, including refunding your funds if there is no common ground to be found. The call back matters more to me than the first sale. My high-resolution pictures are designed to improve your portfolio, career, or special event and they will be professionally calibrated for printing and viewing on the internet. My goal is to take images that are greater than any you have captured in the past that will have your colleagues singing your praises! As a full-time photographer, video editor and graphic designer in Los Angeles, no two weeks are the same for me and I love the variety of experiences that this brings to my life. My memory bank is overflowing with precious moments that I've had the privilege of capturing with my clients. Thank you very much for this opportunity!

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        Yes, my full pricing structure is available on my website and it varies. I am very skeptical of photographers who do not have clear and concise pricing on their website. In my experience, their strategy is to shake down their clients and charge them according to their available budget instead of their actual needs. Unfortunately, the client is usually the one who loses in this situation. They will usually either wind up over paying because the photographer wants to take them for all they've got, or they will receive a low quality product because they couldn't pay up more. I have gone to great lengths to ensure that my pricing and sales system is as transparent as possible so people know exactly what they are getting and at exactly what price. Of course, there will always be custom gigs, like the ones here on Thumbtack, and in those cases it is vital to be flexible.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        The first thing I do with my new clients is as lots of 'dumb' questions. My initial question is 'What will constitute success for this gig?'. I believe there are no 'dumb' questions and only 'dumb' mistakes. My goal is to minimize any mistakes before they take place and to fully understand the final use of your images. This can be done online or in person. Once we have agreed on all the details, we complete the shoot. After the shoot I make sure the client is completely satisfied by following up with them and making any adjustments that may be needed. I believe my service after the photo shoot is just as important, if not more so, than it is before the photo shoot, because the call back is more important than the first sale to me.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I have a Bachelors degree in Mass Media from Delaware State University and also take pride in having continued my education using the numerous unorthodox methods now available to us in this 21st century Information Age i.e. Youtube, google etc. It's helped me eliminate any excuses because whenever I'm presented with a challenge, there is usually someone else out there who faced the same challenge, conquered it, and made a video about it!
