About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am very dedicated and passionate about my work, my photography, about the quality of the images. Maybe sometimes even too much. When one would think that smaller project, a less expensive, with less value in it would be treated and photographed as one. I still pay same amount of attention to detail, and photograph it just like I would photograph a "castle" Because something with little value to one could be a treasure to someone else.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Photographing beautiful properties, meeting and working with new and different people.

    I am a Real Estate Broker and hired Tom to photograph a home that did not have alot of natural light. The goal was to present the home in the best possible way and Tom nailed it with his photos. Job well done.

    Very professional, delivered a quality product on time, and was quite "fussy" about the look of each shot -- important traits in a photographer!

    I hired Tom to take pictures and do a virtual tour on a listing of mine. Working with Tom was a wonderful experience. He's extremely professional and prompt. His work is "out of this world". After experiencing his quality of work to others in the past, I would never use anybody else. Bob AMERICORP REAL ESTATE
