(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.

Clearlight Video & Photography captured the best of my wedding. Lawrence is professional, kind, outgoing, curious, thoughtful, and takes the initiative to get the perfect shot. He calmly and tactfully directed our guests into the frame to get all the compositions we asked for (and more). Lawrence has a natural ability to capture real emotion and personality from strangers, such that many of our best photos are his candids. Moreover, all of our guests complimented us on his professionalism, friendliness, and ability to get people in the shot to compose good images. Lawrence was easy to work with throughout the process. We negotiated a price easily, even though my situation was fairly unique. Lawrence also allowed me access to his RAW files, something many photographers refuse to do. When I was unable to transfer the files to my computer after the event, Lawrence made additional arrangements to ensure I received them. Lawrence even continued to work on some of my images after the event had completed and he had been paid in full, sending me his alterations gratis. In sum, I speak for all of my guests in saying we were incredibly impressed with Lawrence's work. Measured by quality, I can see the services of Clearlight Video & Photography easily costing in excess of $2,000, especially in the Bay Area. I consider Lawrence's photography services to be the best bargain of my wedding, and give him my highest recommendation.

I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!

Diane always responded quickly, to my questions. She came onsite and was very thorough. Her work was superior to other drone vendors we have used in the past. The stills arrived in 1 day, and the edited video took less than 3 days.

I highly recommend Martino for any event. My company hired Martino to photograph our VIP Tailgate for the Super Bowl and he did a wonderful job! He was extremely professional and required little direction to get the job done. I have worked with plenty of photographers in the past and Martino definitely earns 5 stars.

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

We put on corporate events in cities across the country and having high-quality photos is critical to our business. For the past two years we've had the pleasure of working with Cheshire on several occasions and he's by far one of the best photographers we've worked with. We are most impressed with his ability to capture the spirit and energy of our events with great attention to detail. We have no doubt that you'll have a great experience working with Cheshire!

I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

My client needed an on-site photographer/videographer that was based in the Sacramento area, and Donald from Up Logic Media was the perfect fit for what we needed. Finding a professional you can trust to get the job done can be a nerve-racking, but Up Logic Media surpassed our expectations by a landslide.

Ashleigh is a true professional. In the two hours we had her, she captured all the requested shots plus many impromptu special moments. Her personality and kindness is what separates her from other photographers I have worked with in the past. Many friends and family members commented on her cheerfulness and smile. Her photos are as beautiful as she is. We all enjoyed having her here on our special day. I would hire Ashleigh again for any corporate or private function that I have in the future.

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

They were AWESOME! They brought on a third photographer to help when they realized the size of the wedding events. They made suggestions where they knew better with their expertise and it worked out better than perfect - I.e. when the best time to take family photos. They were on time and ready to go with very creative pictures. I haven’t received my photos or video yet (it’s onky been 1 month today) but I have no doubt they will blow me away. THANK YOU!!!

I asked Steven to take my Graduation Photos this past May (2017). I was attracted to his dramatic style and was even more impressed with the final photos. Steven's professionalism shone through and made working with him a breeze. He works hard to make sure customers like the photos they are getting -- he asked about what kind of poses I was comfortable with, discussed what colors/style I was looking for, and continuously shared the photos he took throughout the shoot for feedback. He was very accommodating to my numerous requests (which included asking for photos at extra angles, re-taking photos to fix even the most minute details) and was patient in trying new poses and ideas. His attention to detail helped elevate the quality of the final product. This was exemplified during the shoot, through his simple suggestions on how to fix poses, as well as after, when the final photos demonstrated his strong eye for color. Furthermore, having worked with multiple photographers in the past, I have come to realize that being comfortable with the photographer is extremely important for truly natural, candid photos. Steven is both friendly and funny; I didn't feel awkward in front of the camera or too "pose-y." I believe the example photos I attached below show how much fun I had shooting with him! +++, 10/10, would recommend!! I look forward to working with Steven again in the future :)

Frank was our photographer for our wedding at the iconic city hall in San Francisco. Working with Frank was a pleasure and we couldn't be happier with the results. The images he took of our ceremony and of us as a family in city hall are now cherished heirlooms. Frank was professional throughout the entire process, he was the first person to arrive at city hall (he was early) and he took a creative approach throughout, not only taking photos of the ceremony but he also took beautiful shots of the the environment and candid photos of our family going with us through the whole process. Upon completion of the ceremony Frank promptly shared with us the results which included not only the raw camera files, but a complete set of color corrected and edited photos. The results are stunning. I highly recommend working with Frank should you need a photographer. Jhanette, Oakland, CA
