Loved Michael's work! Requested a non-intrusive journatlistc photography approach (candid shots) for a small wedding and that is exactly what we got. Michael was polished and un-assuming -- he blended in with the guests and captured the wedding and reception without interrupting the flow. Though the bride was afraid staged pictures would appear cheese-ball, Michael had the bride and groom pose in areas of the venue that he selected for a few photos- and they turned out to be the most beautiful photos of the collection. The only slip up we did not account for was finding parking in downtown San Francisco...On account of this Michael ran a tad late to the ceremony and reception venues. But his process, style & photographs made up for it!
Kayleigh is extraordinarily gifted in photography. She is equally gifted in working with children. We've been so fortunate to have her capture stunningly beautiful moments of our daughter and our family on two separate occasions. Simply the best! If I could capture in a review what she captures on film, you'd be calling her now!
Avni's talent, passion and knowledge for photography are truly outstanding. In a time where people can take pictures constantly, she blends modern technology with old-school thoughtfulness to make more than just a snapshot...rather a keepsake to last a lifetime. The photoshoot itself was very fun and she was a professional at guiding me (laughing, at times) into the right poses. Turnaround time was very fast and the end result was amazing. She of course photographed me beautifully, but I still looked like myself which was important. I highly recommend Avni.
David makes the photo subject feel at ease, which produces great results! He usually asks for certain words or a feel that the photos convey. He is not afraid of letting photo subjects know what is working and what is not—facial expressions, poses, background, etc. You can tell he is working to get the best results possible. Great communication between the client. Will definitely be going to David for future photography needs.
Sean is one AMAZING photographer! I found Sean through Thumbtack and could not be happier! Sean’s professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative. He was friendly, the nicest guy to work with, and yes he price was the most affordable in the San Francisco Bay area. Sean has an incredible eye for the "right" shot, he made sure to get every shot right. You will NOT be disappointed in his work, my photos are simply amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. By the way his dogs were very friendly too!
Great photos! Like it!
Lisa has photographed me and my family for over 15 years. She is a blast to work with, makes kids and adults laugh and feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her photographs are artistic and beautiful. She is highly professional and extremely talented.
Dan is a great photography and Adobe Lightroom instructor. I am a wildlife photographer in East Africa, and I wanted to improve my shooting skills out in the field. My other goal was to have a deeper understanding of editing in Lightroom. I have taken lessons with Dan for a year and a half, and my skills have greatly improved. He has the unique ability to explain highly technical photography techniques in a way that is clear, and concise. His vast photography experience is very apparent in his in-depth teaching style. Dan has helped me in improving my editing workflow, and I learned so much from him about Lightroom. Whether you are new to photography, or very experienced, I highly recommend Dan as an instructor. Whenever I visit the States, I plan on taking more lessons from him. ~Chris Austria www.ChrisAustria.com
Chris got to know my story before he shot photos of my boyfriend and I for our first shoot together. I felt like he really understood the look and feel I was going for. He makes us look great (I've hired him more than once) and also authentic. Chris is also versatile. I've used him for professional product shots, lifestyle work, artistic installations, personal use, and corporate events. Most importantly, he's a total blast to work with. I couldn't recommend ChristopherChe Photography more.
Robert did a great job on scenery and the photographs looked great
Odell was a professional through and through. Arrived on time, took amazing photos and had them uploaded and sent to us the same day. Definitely recommend!
Dan is an amazing instructor! We opted for the unstructured class, and the 2 hours flew by. We learned so much and will definitely be coming back for future lessons. The amount of content and attention is great!
Taking Holman Turner's class helped jump start me into creating a viable business for my photography. His detailed explanation of what goes into a billable hour painted a true picture of what is needed to succeed. An added benefit to the class was listening to Holman's stories, based on his experiences - both professional and personal. He is a true gift to the art of photography.

I strive to bring a personal touch to wedding photography. I pride myself in becoming friends with my clients and love to follow up on them after the wedding to see where life has taken them. I shoot in a photojournalism style.
After over 35 years in the photography industry, including 25 years at George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic, I am eventually rising to become their senior visual effects photographer. I now have the opportunity to follow the loves of my professional photography career in architectural photography, feature film production photography and my love of teaching. My career spans from the days as an eager college student, learning how to process a roll of black and white film, then eventually on to traveling the globe, photographing all of A-list actors in Hollywood. I feel that I have a lot to offer to the photographic community. I feel the need to give something back but at the same time, continue to learn. The wonderful thing about photography is that you never stop learning, teaching or sharing; there is always something new. It is a wonderful combination of art, science and experience.
