Allan Mestel is an amazing photographer offering contemporary portraits that are perfect for todays media driven market.Oct 12, 2016
Great experience! He is a very talented photographer:)May 8, 2019Verified
He was communicative and on time. Would recommend to anyone to use his services. Only suggestion is to let the customer pick out what photos they want edited in the beginning.Apr 6, 2019Verified
He did a great job, scheduled quickly, and got the photos back immediately. A very good experience!Nov 13, 2017
After speaking with Allan, I realize that my issues with him were the result of an unfortunate misunderstanding. Please ignore my review on June 30th. Allan sent me the high resolution photos that I asked for and I am satisfied with my experience.Sep 17, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Custom pricing based on the specifics of each project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, I will gather as much information as I can from email requests and follow-up phone calls to produce and accurate brief for the project. If necessary, we can meet either at my studio or a location of your choice. Once I am comfortable that I understand your needs I will produce a quote and present it with my recommendations for achieving the best outcome for you.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Orginally from Toronto, Canada,I have over twenty years of photographic and filmmaking experience. It is a family business as both my father and brother have enjoyed successful careers as cinematographers, I have worked with almost every big-name national advertising agency in North America and have worn numerous awards, including Art Director's Club, Marketing Awards, Bessie awards 9The Canadian version of the CLIO's) and others. In 1992 I won the Gold Bessie for the best TV commercial in Canada and in 1996 I won a First Cut award as one of the top 5 new directors in Canada. I have recently moved to Sarasota with my wife and two small children and have invested in a state of the art studio and am looking to use my experience to build a commercial photography clientele here.
