    On Site Photographs of Properties (Homes)
    Charlie was hired to photograph seven properties (homes) all over Lee County. While the work is still in progress, his first three photo shoots were terrific. As I am a potential investor in any of these homes, obtaining up to date photographs, plus a running commentary on each property, is crucial in my evaluation and bidding process. First rate work - will use Charlie again in the future!

    He actually was able to make something that would not be considered very pretty into a really striking photo!

    Working with Charlie was smooth sailing from the beginning. He answered all of my questions beforehand and made things very simple. Charlie was on time and ready to go. He gave suggestions and feedback during the photoshoot, which made it run smooth and we all had a great time. Considering he has never worked with 12 month olds, he did an amazing job with professionalism, expertise and a smile. I will be calling Charlie for all of our upcoming photo shoots to come! Thank you , Charlie.

    We needed photos fast... Charlie was fast to respond to our request for quotes. Came in with very fair pricing. Charlie drove to the site, spent the day shooting photos and video. He was very professional and quickly got us proofs the night of the shoot and by the next day we were downloading all the high res photos and videos through his Dropbox Link. Charlie came through for us and we made our deadline... plus we now have a large amount of great video clips and product in use shots! We will definitely use Charlie again.

    I've had the opportunity to work with Charlie while I managed a paper mill in El Salvador. His photos, both of scenic and of operating machinery are of outstanding quality, and very useful for graphic representation of our activities there. Great photographer and person!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
No I do not have a standard pricing system, I like to take into consideration all the different details and peculiarities each contract has, and this has its influence on the pricing. In my opinion this formula works best for both the client and the contractor.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First I like to hear from them what they are looking to obtain from the image or images.Then I suggest a pre-production meeting where we get to go over all the details of the shoot, if this is not possible a detailed list of his expectations for the images to be shot is the next step. Once I have zeroed in his expectations and requirements I proceed to prepare for the shoot. Once the shoot is done, I send all the raw unedited images to the client so they can choose, I like to offer several options to my clients from where to choose from. After the client sends his choices and comments regarding editing I proceed to edit and deliver the finalized images in a promptly manner, usually this process takes 24 hours.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a 4 year Diploma from the Art Institute of Colorado in Photography and several masters courses and workshops. I also have a master course in natural lighting from the University of Buenos Aires.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
After Highschool I enrolled into the Art Institute of Colorado and got majored in Photography, after that I have completed several masters courses and specialized workshops. Since I first started shooting photographs I knew it was what I wanted to pursue as a formal career and my passion for the trade continues to be extremely gratifying.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with all types of customers from large corporations like Marriot to small business owners and freelance professionals like architects and designers, I have been hired by NGO's like UNICEF and CARE and by Governments as well.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Shooting a concealment for an antenna, for Stealth Concealment. The challenge was to make an industrial structure look amazing. This project took a whole day but the results were well worth the effort and the satisfaction from the customer was priceless.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
To make sure he is getting the best quality and service for his budget. Its very important to hire someone who listens first and then act. Experience and professionalism do make the difference.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
In my opinion its key that the customer knows what he is expecting from the image, and what he intends to communicate with the end product. Its vital to me as a photographer to know what the client expects from the image as a marketing tool, and the usage he intends to give to the image.
