About

Since I started Luminary Photo about 8 years ago, I have photographed a wide range of subjects, such as weddings, celebrities, places and fashion. I have donated my time to charity organizations where I captured Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dick Van Dyke and Randy Newman with my camera. My work has been published, and I am the photo editor for Namak magazine. What I love most is photographing weddings. It is the greatest fun you can have as a photographer. I love participating in the start of a brand new family. With each wedding I shoot, I am reminded of my own marriage. Every wedding reminds me how much Jodi and I mean to each other. Jodi also has a keen interest in photography and has a natural way with the camera. As a team, we believe in creating photographs that captures the emotion of our client's wedding day. We consider our pictures to be the family's very first heirloom. We work with the bride and groom to capture the year of planning that goes into creating a perfect wedding. We also capture family moments at special events, or help you create family portraits that you love. We are experts with having people feel at ease and are especially good at photographing children. We also work with actors and actresses to create natural and beautiful headshot portraits. We would love to work with you to create a package that fits your needs, whether they include weddings, portraits or any other type of photography. Please enjoy the photos, and we look forward to speaking with you soon.

About

I highly recommend David Miller and David Miller Studios. At various gatherings, both business and personal events David has truly shown excellent portrait work and candid group photos. He has done so without being the center of attention as other photographers have in the past. He is caring, wants to please the client and conducts his art, photography, with unobtrusive dignity. I would use him anytime and in any situation.

About

Shannon's photos speaks for herself, which is why we chose her to shoot our small intimate wedding. In our search for a photographer, after viewing her website & meeting her in person we were very confident she would deliver! Her personality, talent & ability to meet our custom needs, were exactly what we were looking for. A family member asked me if she was a personal friend because of the way we interacted & connected as she shot our wedding, she has you at ease on your most anxious day. Shannon's photos are distinctive; her creative eye, her energy & passion flourish into her work. Everyone who viewed the slideshow (not in wedding attendance) that she put together for us had the same remark "I felt as if I was there", because she has a unique skill of capturing those special moments. We are not only thrilled with our amazing wedding photos, but to have also met a person like herself. We look forward to using her again in the future!

About

Maureen Clark As a freelance writer, I worked with Maureen Clark on acquiring images to accompany one of my articles. What I can tell you about working with her, is to be prepared for an exceptional experience. What I mean is the experience you’ll have watching her work, and I invite you to sit back and enjoy. Maureen lets you know her philosophy right away: she’s a perfectionist. And that’s a good thing for anyone using her services. Coupled with her perfectionism is her keen eye for design, and it is like viewing an orchestrated dance, watching her move around the subject, scrutinizing each perspective for just the right angle, the right light, the right expression on a model’s face. The perfect perspective, to Maureen, can come from any angle, and it is a delight, watching her find a way to get a shot, such scaling an ancient, rickety table on the century- old farmhouse porch where this particular shoot was conducted. When a cow I wanted in the background broke loose, Maureen was on top of that situation too, offering to sprint after it. Maureen’s propensity for teamwork reaches far, and she frequently stopped to educate me (not a photographer) about what she saw through her lens, asking if it was what I wanted. However, that courtesy wasn’t even necessary, because with just a brief summary of my article, Maureen had exactly “read” what type of photos I needed.

About

I specialize in actors' head shots, portraits and small product photography. I have been a serious photographer since the early 1960s, and had my own black and white darkroom for many years in the pre-digital days when everyone was shooting film. All of my head shot and portrait work, so far, has come from referrals. I have done many different types of photography, although I like portrait and small product photography (sometimes very small) the best. I also buy and sell cameras, photo equipment, binoculars and other optical equipment on Ebay, and have been doing all my own product photos for about 10 years. A big reason for my Ebay success is the extra effort I put into getting good photos. I am available for shooting at my place or will travel to location. My minimum fee is $150, with an hourly charge of $75-$150. Travel to distant locations will cost extra. If you think $75-$100 per hour is high, it is not, because I typically spend 30-60 minutes for each hour of shooting time in final processing of the photos (adjusting brightness, contrast, color balance, cropping) to get the best final results. You are not paying extra for this service. Price includes a full-resolution CD with all photos shot in the session. If the photos are not acceptable, I will re-shoot for no extra charge.

About

I am a professional photographer based out of Los Angeles, specifically in Northern LA. I do live music, portraits, studio shots, environmental portraits, weddings, parties, animals, pregnancies, and children. I have all my own equipment and charge less than 90% of those out there. I am also well seasoned in hair/makeup if you need it, which is also included in the photography expenses as a free service. Most of my shoots take anywhere, from 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on what you need. I also have an online portfolio for portraits, as well as one for live music, as those are my specialties. I've been getting paid work in the business since I was 16 years old, and I was chosen as a paid photographer on Vans Warped Tour (the entire US tour), so I have a knack for what I do and a positive mental attitude. I've never had a dissatisfied customer!

About

Get a free quote now, and get started on your project right away! We specialize in professional photography. Freelance photography is a relatively inexpensive business to get up and running. This article highlights some basic guidelines when considering undertaking this full-time or part-time business venture. Freelance photography is the ultimate expression of one's love of photography. For most photographers, this is the best job they could ever think of because they are being paid for something which they love doing. Freelance photography is defined as the work done by photographers or artists who run their own businesses rather than working for a company. Generally speaking, freelance photographers own their equipment and take photographs for many clients. Freelance photography is perfect for home-based photographers. In fact, many people are choosing photography as a source of extra income. Freelance photography is an enjoying and satisfying career. It is certainly never a boring career choice. Freelance photography is a career easily pursued on weekends. Indeed, many of the events and occasions that photographers are hired to capture occur on the weekend, and by limiting your business operations to this time, you can gauge the work flow, time commitment and profitability of work before you give up your day job. Freelance photography is where the freshest ideas come from. Thousands of pictures are taken every hour around the world, and a lot become lost in the shuffle. Freelance photography is widely used in our magazine. Stock photos are always welcome, as well as assigned photographs. Freelance photography is what many aspiring professionals see as their way to break into the business. In the age of digital photography where everyone and their cousin has a camera capable of producing a spectacular shot; it's a tough thing to break into. Freelance photography is one of the few industries left where normal people can engage their hobbies and actually make a great living. The unfortunate part of photography nowadays is that anyone with a camera considers themselves a professional photographer, making the industry heavily saturated and difficult to achieve credibility. Freelance photography is something you can either do full-time or part-time. It is really up to you how many hours you put into it. Freelance photography is all about getting paid for your photos. You can work as a photographer and be your own boss, and sell your photos online or offline. Freelance photography is a very high rewarding career, and people working as photographers have very good scopes in this field. The traditional sources like magazines, newspapers and the Internet usage help to gain more contracts. Freelance photography is available for short- to medium-term projects. Services include products for catalogues and websites, event photography, corporate and social portraits, architectural images, and photomedia art for gallery and business walls.
