About this pro

How does your service stand out?

In a word "experience". I've been around the block and you simply get more very good photos than with some other photographers. I use the best gear with primes lenses and wireless light systems when needed to get the best results possible.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Just being a part or your day and making the memories special.

    John was flexible with my schedule, professional, and delivered a great product! I really enjoyed working with him and his wife (she did my hair and makeup!!) My headshots turned out great, and I hope to use him for family photos in the future.

    John was exceptionally accommodating with my wishes for a beach & holiday-themed photoshoot. His price quote was competitive & he knew the perfect location to meet our needs. He was able to edit & get all of my requested photos back to me quickly. He is a talented photographer & has creative vision.

    John came to our house to do a family shoot. 14 adults & 5 kids. He picked spot outside on our lawn because of afternoon light. And the pictures were "exceptional". John is very professional, knows his stuff!!!!, and works well with people - like getting them to relax, smile for that perfect shot! I highly recommend him!

    John is a very patient and professional photographer. This was the first time we did a couples photo shoot and the pictures were wonderful. He was timely and did everything he promised.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I often attend seminars to learn the craft and read/research tutorials on line to keep up with the latest gear and technics.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Basically it's around $195.00 per hour first hour then $100.00 per hour and you get much more than just photos.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've always excelled in the arts. I've won many awards and have published work starting from grade school on up. After working in a cubicle in sales for 20 years and doing photography part time I decided I had to go with what makes me smile from day to day. Photographer is my life and this is how I provide for my family.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings and engagement sessions. Portraits. Head Shots. Events.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I did a charity shoot for weddings for warriors and mothers with breast cancer as a no cost donation.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
What ever you do don't go for the lower priced offers where the photographer may work part time or only have a few years experience and or inferior gear. Also, no need to pay thousands of dollars for a higher end photographer who shows you all the feathers but ends up using an underpaid or inexperienced assistant to shoot or edit causing you to get the same or less quality than hiring the right photographer for the right price. I happen to think I'm the right blend of value for you money in the area.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That I love what I do, I'm passionate, dependable, and know how to let the day unfold and make people smile. It's all about letting the client enjoy the day seamlessly.
