We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

I love PicMarc photography. Marc is a very good photographer who was so friendly and helping my date and I to get great shoots. He has helped us to feel comfortable and took pictures with us with passion, and he was more than willing to follow some of the requests I told him about. I love his photography and was impressed on how fast he uploaded pictures. I was glad we had many pictures. I want to come back to him next year, too. And every photos look amazing.

A huge thank you Richard with Richard Hartog Photography for the photos that you took at my mother's funeral. My family have just had a wonderful moment looking at your web site and the beautiful, engaging, moving and sensitive photos which you photographed and then assembled the marvelous photos that truly captured the sadness of mother's passing and the celebration of her life. Funeral photography? Richard is very brilliant, friendly and I thank Richard for the discreet and unobtrusive manner in which he photographed mother’s funeral. You were always there but off to the side to render whatever was needed for us. I can't thank you enough for the wonderful professional service. Your friendly smiles and willingness to make things as comfortable as possible made a very difficult day, one that my family and I will never forget. Your high quality photos has brought back many fond memories for all who attended mother’s funeral service, and will be a source of precious memories for our families and also for generations to come. What a wonderful record for the family of such a significant event! 1 highly recommend Richard. He works professionally, discretely, and he captures the emotions of the funeral very well. He communicates before the funeral service and arrives on time the day of the funeral. Within a few days of the funeral, selected photos are assembled in a private gallery on his website. This special service allows our family to share mother’s funeral with family and friends who were unable to attend the funeral in person. You did an outstanding job Richard, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Thank You. Margaret.

Having Corey shoot our photos was such a great experience! We purchased the the classic package and those hours flew because we were having so much fun with it. He was so easy to work with when it came to times and locations and of course he made us feel comfortable. He truly captured the candid moments that we will always remember. Corey also helped with my shy façade in front of the camera so that showed he was patient! Big plus. We absolutely love our photos and were shocked at how quick we got ours back. Would definitely do photos with him again!! :)

What I loved most about working with Michelle was her vibrant, positive energy, and refreshing outlook on photography and life, all mixed into one. Michelle is brilliant, and can turn any routine senior portrait into a work of art. I've seen it with my own eyes, HER eye is incredible! As a friend and former colleague, her talent is inspiring; being is empowering. I am truly grateful to have met and worked beside her.

Marcus did the photography for promo pictures of our band Kool Breezzz. He did this all in one session. We were very pleased with the way the photos came out & that there was a lot of great shots to choose from. The experience during the session went very well. Marcus was professional, and pleasant, especially dealing with photographing 8 people at the same time! I would highly recommend him.

About

We provide photography workshops geared toward the emerging photographer, as well as the beginner and advanced amateur. Our classes include outdoor lighting, composition and creativity, effective metering, shooting on the street, holga photography and intro and advanced digital camera techniques. The groups are small, so we can keep a high instructor to student ratio, so you always get the attention and information you need. If you have a particular area you want to study, we can create a custom workshop just for you. This is especially effective for corporations looking to increase their staff photography knowledge, or provide a great team experience. All the instructors are working professionals with a long history of teaching photography at the college level. Taking one of our workshops is like spending the day taking great pictures with a friend who just happens to know a heck of a lot about photography.
