    Herb Paynter is a true professional. I'm not someone that really enjoys having my photo taken, but needed a few for professional purposes. Herb has a calming way about him that helps you relax to enjoy the experience. I would highly recommend Herb as a photographer for any event, because he really enjoys it and he's a true professional.

    Thank you Glenn. You were very easy to work with. I really enjoyed our session. I'm glad you liked your pictures.

About this pro

What makes me different from other photographers and editing services? In a single word... bandwidth. We are a small two-person creative/production company with a wide spectrum of experience in overlapping disciplines from concept to wrap-up. What we lack in size, we make up for in experience. When creative imagination is backed up by years of production experience, you have a pretty powerful combination of tools to apply to almost any challenge. I've been shooting and editing pictures professionally for over twenty years and absolutely love what I do. I'm a photography instructor and author of over fifteen iBooks on photography, editing, and digital color. I work fast, shoot what's important, crop for detail, and optimize every photo before submitting it. I provide video editing services including animated titling, narration, and music tracks. I've worked in the professional audio industry for years, have produced dozens of videos, and understand the critical balance needed in mixing and sweetening. I love capturing the detail in every photo. I understand lighting and know how to shape the light to deliver full detail. Clarity and detail is what makes each job fun. I work with the best production editing equipment and enjoy producing excellent products. I love working with good equipment, and I've chosen the mirrorless Lumix GH3 camera and several fast zoom lenses because of the superior electronics, nearly silent operation, and flawless lens quality. The camera and lenses are so lightweight that the burden of carrying around needless size and weight has been removed. This makes shooting candid photography fun.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My standard rate is $50/hour and many projects can be completed within that hourly range. After get an initial understanding of the scope of the project, I can generally guarantee a firm price. If the project involves changes from the original specification, I'll work at the hourly rate until the job is finished and approved.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      It's best to get to know a bit about the people and the project before I start. Knowing the expectations of the client is very important and needs to be understood completely. Every job is unique and requires individual approach. There are no cookie-cutter projects. It's also important to get the pricing right out in the open so there are no surprises for either the client or myself.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I've been working with both photo and digital images for decades now. I've worked with Adobe Systems engineers on both Photoshop and Premiere Pro. I'm a Certified Color Management Professional and Photoshop Professional. My training includes courses from Eastman Kodak, EFI, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Apple.
    Coverage Area for Herb Paynter Photography is about 35+ miles of Ormond Beach, FL.
