About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I do a lot of candids. A lot of photographers will only do traditional style portraits but I like both styles in my sessions. It captures who the people truly are.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the unexpected, and that happens a lot with photography.

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
It's usually based on time and miles traveled; I don't charge extra to do 50 pictures vs. 100 pictures on your flash drive, cuz that doesn't cost me any extra. If you want more prints than offered in a quote, or more hours, I am always open to discuss it (and I am pretty reasonable). I take payments through Visa, MasterCard, Amex, and Discover. Not a lot of photographers do that.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It just kind of happened. Someone told me in high school that I should take pictures professionally and I dabbled a little. Before I knew it I had my own company.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Family portraits, weddings, engagements, headshots, modeling, maternity, casual shots, parties, animals.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always expect to pay a deposit if your event happens to be several months to years away. Some people don't understand that this is customary. Most photographers as for 40-60%, some ask for all of it 😳, I ask for 20-25%. I think that's reasonable.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Photographers tend to take a lot of pictures of our own families, as they are great practice. So if you see a lot of the same person/people, ask "is that your family?" It might even help you get to know the photographer a little better!
