We chose this photographer out of 2 other photographers because of his great work he displayed to us. He was on time for the event and took great pictures. I would recommend him to anyone. His prices are reasonable and I give him 2 thumbs up. Thanks Dane.

Dane did an amazing job. We filmed a small group discussion. Dane made sure that the footage captured the essence of the event. We liked that he asked a lot of questions and provided good instructions. He was very professional. We enjoyed working with him.

Working with Dane.co was amazing. His sense of creative direction was amazing. He didnt know i was a past Jcpenney catalog model, meaning i know the ends and out of photography. But i let him lead and direct and took his direction well with my pet photo shoot. Very easy to work with, and direction is clear. Look forward to working with him in the future.
