Marcus did a great job. He made me feel very comfortable. I am using one of his head shots for the back cover of a recent book I self published. I would highly recommend him.Dec 3, 2015

Greetings - We hired Pearl Moon Photography to do a photo shoot of a group of dancers for both their group and individual shots. Totally professional on the day of the shoot and then when we got access to the proofs, wow - we were really blown-away because the photos were better then we even imagined they could be. Of a group of a dozen, each and every participant was VERY HAPPY; both on the day of the shoot and especially with the photographs. I highly recommend Pearl Moon Photography. Smooth, professional, keen-eyed and great connection / communication with the subjects making them comfortable and photogenic. Peace, Joe SalomoneNov 14, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?As a good friend of mine use to remind me - "KISS." That's right..."keep it simple!" I quote all photo assignments based on my client's specific needs, photo shoot time requirements, image editing/post production and how they plan on using the images I create for them, e.g., print advertising, prints & enlargements, publishing, actor auditions, internet etc...
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My father was a photographer in the U.S. Navy. He was responsible, later in his esteemed career, for camera product development at Bell & Howell Corporation. He was my initial inspiration. My mother received a "Kodak 35" camera as a college graduation gift from her parents. My first few rolls of black & white film were shot using her very vintage Kodak 35. You would absolutely marvel at the simplicity of the "Kodak 35." It is nothing at all like today's digital cameras!
- What types of customers have you worked with?Throughout the year I will photograph numerous corporate events, head shot clients, weddings, musicians/bands and arts & entertainment clients. As well, for weddings and private events, I am the goto lead photographer for Pret a Poser Wedding Photography...
