    Gary is an amazingly patient and artistic individual to work with. I had the pleasure of working with Gary for a Photo shoot for a non profit organization featuring the first ever children's Indian music ensemble at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. We had a big group of children and adults and Gary was amazing working with each and everyone individually and together. He was able to capture priceless moments and clear detailed pictures of our intricate costumes, facial expressions, and instruments. He was very creative with how we could pose and location for the shoot. This was many of the children's first time being in front of a professional photographer, so you can imagine how excited they all were! Gary truly made them feel like the stars they are always cheerful, patient, creative, and professional. We will be featuring the photos from the photo shoot that Gary took in promotional campaigns as well as the brochure at the Sydney opera house. Gary was very prompt in putting the pictures to view online the same day and was so patient in making certain changes and even photoshopping other members of the ensemble so flawlessly (it seriously looked like they were there for the actual photo shoot)! Overall it was a pleasure working with Gary and we will def recommend his services and artistic vision to our friends and families! Can't wait to work with you again Gary! Thank you so much!!!

    Gary is a pleasure to work with. He takes excellent photos, is attentive to any requests and great with suggestions to improve the content. He delivers his product in a timely fashion. He has done wedding photos, family photos, photos for a professional pamphlet, and photos for a fundraising event. He makes the photo experience an enjoyable time!

    Worked with Gary photographing a charity event, providing studio family photos for free at Christmas for working poor group. Gary has a wonderful way with people and is an excellent photographer. He is shooting my daughter's wedding, That's about as high a recommendation as there is!

    Gary does Beautiful work! I have used his services over the past 4-5 years and have Never been disappointed! My family used him for our Christmas cards, multiple shots & backgrounds were used in his studio, we even had the family dog in some of the photos!!! He & his wife were very patient with the dog too, working with her to get the "perfect shot", and even when I said that was 'okay' because the pooch wasn't cooperating and I didn't want to have the session run late, he was very eager and kind saying "it's no problem, we have to get the right shot!", AND so we did, some 45 min later, but they were awesome!!! He also has worked with my daughter over the course of her chemo treatment, and made her feel 'at home' with her appearance (no hair) at the time, she was nervous at first, then quickly became comfortable and relaxed and even started "getting into it"!! What a gift!!! I highly recommend Gary and will continue to go to him in the future!!! You will not be disappointed!!

    Gary did a great job doing a group portrait of our family. He also did individual shots of family members. The results were just great. They are still displayed on an easel in our living room. He demonstrated knowledge of posing as well as technical knowledge of cameras and lights needed to produce great shots.


What types of customers have you worked with?
Portraits, senior photos, events, and weddings. I do a lot of charity events too. I absolutely love shooting family portraits for lower income families. To see their smiles when you hand them probably the only official family portrait they have ever received is priceless.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Meet prospective photographers in person. See how well they interact with you. You are in charge so don't be afraid to tell the photographer what you want.
