I hired Tim to photograph a skylight installation in Oakland, California. He was quick in responding to every request I had and flexible in scheduling (we had to wait until Christmas decorations came down and he handled the rescheduling with ease). The photos, both of interiors and roof top installation, turned out beautiful!Feb 2, 2018Verified
Tim did catalog work for us and was very professional, easy to work with, flexible and the photos turned out great. He really knows his stuff when it comes to lighting. He shot our stainless steel units and the photos were flawless.Apr 18, 2017Verified
This was my favorite experience with a photographer. The work was excellent; timely. He is a pro. I will have him photograph all of my SF events.Sep 28, 2016Verified
Timothy is one of the best photographers I have worked with in my 30+ years in the business! He may not be the cheapest but he is worth his entire rate and more!! He is well with the investment!!!Feb 3, 2016Verified
From the get-go, Timothy was very communicative, clearly stating his needs to get the job done. I hired him to work with a client to create vivid pictures for a website. Even though the client couldn't meet all of his suggested conditions for a successful photo shoot, Tim was a pro and didn't blink an eye. He improvised, and the results are stunning. My client, a school, has a vast photo bank that will serve them for years to come. Thank you, Tim!Jan 29, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All clients are unique, and each shoot presents a different approach to production and budget. Once I have a full, and complete understanding of the Project, I then build a flat rate budget, taking all aspects into account.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?With my 30 + years in being a Professional, I ask specific, targeted questions so that I can create the most accurate estimate possible. I then guide my clients thru the Production process, be it a small or large shoot. I pride myself on educating my clients, as much as letting them know how fun we make our shoots!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Though 30 + years of working with a large variety of clients is most important, I also have 7 years of formal training and 2 years of being an in-house Director of Photography, overseeing a crew of 20.
