Introduction: Hi there! I’m Paul Vroom and I appreciate you stopping for a moment to read my intro. Having a memorable experience and getting the best value for your time and money is important to you, right? I respect that because I want the same. Connecting, collaborating, and creating excellence in imagery is my passion and my commitment. I will do whatever is within my power to provide my clients with a memorable experience and with images that illicit a "Yes!", “Nice!”, or “Thank you!”. Getting those images to you in the agreed upon time frame is also my commitment. I've been shooting for ten years and at the end of 2022 decided to officially hang my own shingle, PV Photography LLC. I’m a member of the Professional Photographers of America association, the world’s oldest and largest non-profit org for and by photographers and I hold a CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) designation with them, which means I passed a rigorous test and image submissions process. Since then I've been hired by commercial contractors to shoot their architecture, actors to shoot their headshots, businesses to shoot their products and so on. I was invited to show my work in a gallery this past August and in September won the annual photography contest for the California Welcome Centers. My work can be seen in the Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree Welcome Center for the next year. What sets me apart is 30 years in the entertainment industry in front of and behind the camera. I worked as an actor, writer, live show director, and performance coach for 25 years and l learned innumerable lessons from that, which positively translate to my photography and to how I run my business. During that time, like most actors, I held “bill paying jobs”. For me, that was two jobs – Performance/Speaker Coach and for 12 years a SUD counselor. I’m truly a people person and LOVE to connect with others on a meaningful level. I’m known for my ability to empathetically connect with others and for the effort I put into my work. This means I may charge a bit more than others but I’m certain I’m not the most expensive and I am confident you’ll get your money’s worth. Check out my website and look at the PRICING section to get a sense of my portraiture pricing. Any first time clients who give me permission to use your images in my portfolio receive a 20% discount off any service. Deliverables: - - Your images will be uploaded to my client gallery on Pixieset and I’ll provide you with a private link that allows to view and choose the images you like. - You can receive digital files, prints, or a thumb drive of your images. The amount you receive for free depends on our contract but I want you to be happy so there is some flexibility. - For every hour I shoot I will spend that same amount of time or more on editing to provide you with the best images possible. - Lastly, I come prepared with at least two cameras, multiple lenses and lighting equipment as necessary depending on the project and your/our vision.

Paul provided exceptional photography services for a construction project performed by Macro-Z-Technology on the Torrance Transit Terminal. He responded quickly to our inquiries and coordinated with the on-site project manager to get the photos completed within a week of our initial request. The photos were finished and turned over with astonishing speed and of fantastic quality. I would highly recommend Paul for any photography needs considering his skill and enthusiasm to get the best possible shots. Thanks again, Paul!

We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Paul Vroom for our engagement photos, and we could not be more thrilled with the results! From the moment we met Paul, he put us at ease with his warm and friendly demeanor. He listened carefully to our vision and brought his own creative ideas to the table, resulting in photos that are truly stunning.What impressed us most about Paul was his ability to think outside the box and capture shots that were truly unique and artistic. He was always looking for interesting angles and lighting, and the end result was a collection of photos that we will treasure for years to come.Not only is Paul incredibly talented, but he is also a joy to work with. He made us feel comfortable and confident throughout the shoot, and his passion for photography was evident in every shot he took.If you're looking for a photographer who is both talented and creative, look no further than Paul. Thank you for capturing such a special time in our lives so beautifully!"
