About

The Art Photography's purpose first and foremost, in both a historical and conceptual sense, is to record time and place. Though visual art has always transformed three-dimensional space into two dimensions, photography, for the first time in written history, has married science and art to create mechanically accurate but a humanly emotional archive of time. The Artist Photography, when studied as a language, is perhaps the most impactful and purest form of communication: it transcends verbal and written language, objectifies both time and space, and is, at the same time, both art and fact, both beauty and information. I do commercial photography on a personal scale as well as product, event, real estate, and image assignments. Be it the classic headshot, a senior portrait with an edge, or unobtrusive photography of an event, we endeavor to bring artistry to the image. I also have a long history as a teacher of fine arts photography.

I have worked with many photographers in various cities across the United States to document our professional conferences/events and I can easily say that Laurie produced for us the best photography we've ever had. Not only did she give us a vast library of content to choose from, but the composition and balance of every image was fantastic. I plan to use her services in the future and I would definitely recommend her to others who are in need of top notch photography.

About

Working with Paul has been rewarding to say the least! When I decided to focus on photography as a passion and career I had asked Paul if I could shadow him on a shoot of his in order to better understand the equipment, and direction involved. Without hesitation Paul was completely on board and even worked with my busy schedule to accommodate my request. Since then, Paul has stayed in touch while my photography and career continues to develop, helping out and shedding light on details that I have yet to uncover myself. I would strongly recommend Paul to anyone who has the opportunity to work with him. Warmly, William Hayes

About

Caricatures are my main business. I do live subjects at parties, conventions. weddings, etc., My rates are $65 an hour, with a two hour minimum (there may be a travel charge the location is not local to my area). Of course that $130 could be only one hour if you want, many places charge more than that for one hour, but so far everyone has requested the two hours. Events include weddings, corporate picnics, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, birthdays, proms, receptions, graduations, fairs, just about any reason you can think of for getting a bunch of people together and having entertainment. Many jobs through Thumbtack are of this nature. Caricature samples on theThumbtack profile page are visible as are reviews by previous clients. I do a variety of art mediums, mainly concerned with the depiction of the human face and its features and expressions, whether it be caricatures, paintings, drawings, or photography. He does serious portraits in oil, pastel, and charcoal. Other services are framing pictures and digital art. Caricatures and portraits of people can be created from photographs supplied by the customer or taken by the artist if the subject is available. Samples of his work can be seen on his Thumbtack profile page. Photography includes portrait, landscape, and architectural. Samples of photography are on Thumbtack on the profile page, they can be seen by scrolling down the page near the bottom. Portrait painting includes Oil Paintings, a 16x20 canvas starts at $350, more than one person or a larger size would be extra. Pastels are in color, they start at $185, a little smaller image, so that it has room to be matted and fit into a 16x20 frame. Charcoals are black and white drawings, starting at $120, the same size as Pastels. Charcoals and Pastels are done on art paper but should be framed under glass for the best display and protection. I include with the Pastel and Charcoals a plastic covering and backing board for protection untill you get you get it framed. I can also provide framing services if you desire, a 16x20 metal frame, is $60 additional, includes glass, matting, backing, etc., ready to hang. Wood frames start at $80. Portrait painting samples are on his Thumbtack profile page, seen by scrolling down to the middle of the picture samples. Other subjects such as landscapes are done frequently besides the face, George is the top selling photographer at the Art Gallery of Fells Point where he sell photographs mainly of the Fells Point area. George has a BFA college degree (in Fine Art) from the Maryland Institute of Art and has made his living for 30 years from his art.

About

Java Mur Photography provides a wide range of creative photography services to best meet your needs and tell your special story. Although we shoot many weddings, we are also available for other types of special events, portraits, as well as journalistic and commercial photography. Just recently, we were awarded number one among the 10 best affordable photographers in Baltimore. Our special Thumbtack wedding package rate starts at $1700 for an 8-hour photo coverage and includes 300 complimentary high-resolution digital files with rights to print. In our experience, we find that 8 hours is often a good balance between covering the majority of the wedding day activities and maximizing our couple's photography investment. On average, it takes about 8-10 hours to cover from the last 30 minutes of getting ready through the last formal reception activities (usually the cake cutting or bouquet/garter toss). We do offer shorter wedding day coverage for a minimum of 2 hours for intimate weddings or elopements. Popular add-ons include albums, engagement photos, a photo booth, and/or rehearsal dinner coverage. Thank you for considering our services. We are glad you took the time to check out Java Mur's art. We love keeping our clients happy; so please drop us a line or send us a message, and we will custom design a service that will put a smile on your face.

We were very pleased with Steven. His attitude and personality were really fun and relaxing and he was professional and creative. He seemed to have the perfect balance of being autonomous and doing things on his own, yet still conferring with us as the night went on about specifics. He scouted the area for great shots and gave simple and clear direction to us for some amazing shots. I can't wait to see the finished product. After working with him, I can't believe how affordable his prices were. I almost feel like we're stealing from him! ;) Were very thankful we hired Steven!

Everything with pictures went so smoothly on Matt and I's wedding day. Michelle captured some amazing shots and all of the ones she sent for a sneak peak were perfect. The picture quality is stunning and she does fabulous work. Everyone commented on how nice she was and she really made her way around the reception to capture everything we wanted. She worked with us the months leading up to the wedding to make sure we had a list of shots we wanted and how the day was going to run. I was very pleased with Michelle and I would definitely use her again for more photography sessions!

I have been looking long and hard for a photographer for head shots for my daughters. I luckily found Victoria. She was very thorough, even brushing my daughter's hair to make sure she got seriously every hair in place! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional photography. I have already scheduled my second session for my older daughter.

About

Jaye Tolbert took my maternity, baby shower, and 6 month photos of my child. I was impressed with her work, she is professional, I had fun taking my pictures, the atmosphere is very down to earth and comforting. She is very creative with getting the attention of my child and finding great props for my pictures. My session with Jaye took about an hour with the different wardrobe changes, and she made sure to listen and accommodate any request I had for my pictures and came up with new ideas as well. I recommend her photography services to all my family and friends who want great professional, artistic pictures.

Jen is an outstanding photographer! She not only made the photo sessions completely stress-free and fun, but the pictures turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined! People tell me that the pictures look like they should be on the cover of a magazine. I also love that she captures the moment in my choice of location. I can't wait to schedule our next session. I highly recommend her!

Julie was a great choice. She offered us an excellent price, kept communication open, gave us exactly what she promised and left us with beautiful pictures of our wedding day. She is organized enough to get everything done and flexible enough to handle it when things are not going as planned. I must have called her name 30 times during the reception and every time she appeared, smiled, and took the picture I asked for. In the meantime, she got great candid shots and photographed every detail we had agreed on beforehand. Also, she asked us at times to do things that made no sense to us ("hands up, everyone!"), but then we saw the pictures and it was perfect. Julie was a great fit for our not-that-formal, multicultural, teal-wedding-dress, kids-welcome wedding, and we'd work with her again in a heartbeat.

I experienced the work of Baltimore Photo Social at the Maryland Science Center Costume Ball. The photographers were professional and lively, keeping the spirit of the party going. They offered fun props and accessories to accent the photo and gave great posing suggestions. Though their photos were in high demand, keeping them very busy, they gave each person excellent service and were consistently efficient. Not only was the experience fun, but the end photos were extremely accessible- I reviewed mine via email shortly after. This is an excellent business that I would highly recommend!

Adam was a fantastic choice from the start! He was extremely flexible, easy going, friendly and very professional from the first email to the final transfer of photos! We met him at our reception and ceremony site, when he scoped out key spots for photos, and got a feel for the venue, and listened to every single request for photo ideas that I had. He was responsive, helpful and yet also added in his own thoughts and ideas in a way that made us feel very comfortable and at ease with his work. He arrived early on the wedding day with his second photographer and made sure to get EVERY shot that I asked for, especially beautiful shots of my dress, shoes and getting ready shots that were stunning! He was flexible but organized as we did family shots, bridal party, and our couples photos and the results were STUNNING! Adam and his team have such an incredible eye for catching all of the wonderful moments that I hoped to experience again later. He was incredibly efficient with timing and followed us everywhere throughout the day. Adam also made sure to set up special shots for our bride and groom performance that we sang from the balcony overlooking the ballroom, and he captured every moment. We were so happy with his shots, editing, professionalism and quick response time. We could not have asked for a better photographer for our special day and we will treasure our fantastic photos forever! BOOK HIM NOW!
