Dan was great!! He photographed my daughters birthday party and got so many great shots!! I decided at the last minute that I had wanted to hire someone and so glad that I did and it was Dan! He did a great job of capturing candid along with portrait shots. With all the pictures that he took the day of the party he got everything sorted through and edited super fast! I will definitely be calling Dan when I need a photographer again!!Sep 30, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Event Photography: I charge $150 for a one hour photo session. For 2 hours or more I charge $100 per hour. This includes post processing, a DVD if requested, and an online password protected gallery with free downloading from my website. I do candid shots, portraiture, group shots and photo booth (if requested). Portraiture: I charge $100 per hour for outdoor shoots and sessions with portable studio equipment. For the large studio in Kearny Mesa I charge $150 for the first hour and $75 for each hour afterward. This studio has changing facilities, a bathroom, a kitchenette and a viewing area for friends and family. My price includes post-processing a DVD and an online gallery for viewing and downloading. Photo Restoration: There are various degrees of damage and required restoration. It can take a half hour to several hours to repair some images. I need a good description of the damage or a snapshot from a phone in order to make an accurate estimate. But, generally I charge reasonable prices. For minor work I charge as little as $15. For more extreme damage I charge $25 per hour. I can generally make all repairs in one to three hours. I remove dust, dirt, fingerprints, tears, holes, etc. I also restore missing body parts such as eyes, ears, fingers and hands. For samples of my work go to the restoration gallery in my website for Dan Ituarte Photography. If you simply need prints, slides or negatives digitized I recommend going to a company like Video to DVD on Napa St, San Diego or ClickScanShare on 8055 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, San Diego. They have reasonable prices for large quantities of scanning. For all other types of photography I generally charge $100 per hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When a customer contacts me they usually have questions about specific photography they want done. If it is something that I have done before I send more samples to preview. I discuss specifics needs. I alway work with a simple contract to ensure that the terms are clear between me and the customer. I include location of the photo shoot, price, time and contact information. I have a lot of photography gear, and the more information that I have about customer needs, the better I can prepare for the myself and equipment to meet those needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have an art degree in photography as well as a masters degree in GIS imagery. I also have bachelor and master degrees in marine biology and chemistry. I am a retired marine biologist. However, my second chosen career is art photography. I have been taking classes and workshops continuously since 1988. I continue to experiment with light and equipment as well as Lightroom and Photoshop to improve the quality of my work. I have been working professionally for 25 years.
