I found Carrie on thumbtack and she was professional yet so much fun to work with! My 3 mo old was stunned by the big camera & would not smile. Carrie pulled out all the stops to try to coax a smile from him & get a couple. Her artistic eye & creative positioning were much appreciated as I am an artist myself. I felt she listened to my input & took it into account. She was a pleasure to work with & I would highly recommend her. Plus her pricing was very reasonable. So many photographers charge way too much for digital photos and that's why I did not go with them. Plus she came to my house! I can honestly say it was a fun and stress free experience thanks to her!!

Agnes arrived early. Emil happened to be along so we had TWO photographers! They were so professional and captured everything we asked and much more. They filled the entire two hours of the contract with a constant stream of photos. We were so satisfied we cut the cake early and let Agnes go on to her next event -- we couldn't imagine anything else to be captured. We'd very highly recommend Emil and Agnes!!

I am absolutely 100% satified with Martika P. Gartman Photography. I have hired many Event Photographers for both Family and Church Events over the years. However, I must say that Martika P. Gartman Photography is the "best" Event Photographer that I have ever seen with my own eyes. She knew "exactly" how to pose and line up persons for photographs. She took her time, and the Event photographs are excellent "keep-sakes" for everyone attending the Church Event to hear my daughter, Dr. Sheri Prentiss, give a presentation about her newly published book," WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED: MY JOURNEY FROM PHYSICIAN TO PATIENT", an inspiring book about Dr. Sheri as a breast cancer survivor. Thank you, Thumbtack Staff for making the "contact" between myself and Martika P. Gartman Photography.

As a photographer myself (no longer in the industry) I know exactly what I am looking for and Jack more than surpassed our expectations. After learning that our "regular" photographer for our fashion campaigns (for social media), had unexpectedly left the country, we were in a time crunch :( There were many challenges throughout the shoot, (None related to the photographer) our location which was booked online did not meet expectations, the outdoor location was barren and the day was extra windy etc. These things happen. However Jack's timely and professional demeanor saved the day. He is very skilled at problem solving and knows his stuff. What we thought was a brightly lit space was not, thankfully Jack was prepared to deal with the lighting issues. Once we received our images we could not be more thankful! Most photographers can get decent shots in a perfect location with all the time in the world. But it takes an amazing photographer to turn the worst of situations dealt to him around and have it so you never knew there were any challenges. We are planning to have Jack be our go to photog from now on.

I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!

If you're like me, then you heavily base purchasing goods and services on reviews. I take feedback from others very seriously, so if you do as well but don't have time to read my full review just know - the WS Photography team were my FAVORITE vendor of my entire wedding and you just need to hire them now! If you do have time to read my full review, read on for more details. When I first found WS photography, I couldn't believe that such an amazing photographer was A. available for my wedding date and B. such an affordable price. I was in such disbelief that I showed their work to two of my friends who are professional photographers and graphic designers and they reassured me that WS was an excellent choice and had stellar portfolios. From our initial talks, I learned that Ana and Milan had only been in Chicago for a short time but have been shooting weddings around the world for years. Ana was so accommodating during our first talk and even sent over a mock timeline to help me with my decision making. After I hired them the communication was still amazing and we settled on a timeline that worked for all of us since my husband and I were doing a first look and shooting all the photos beforehand. Ana even helped me talk through saving time and money by letting Milan scout out places to take cool photos outside the venue instead of trying to get everyone on a shuttle to go downtown. The day of the Wedding, WS did not disappoint. They were on time and friendly from the beginning and got straight to work. They gave great direction and made everyone in our bridal party feel so comfortable. When we didn't know how to pose or what to do, they gave us direction and sometimes even moved us into the ideal places we needed to be! I think WS will be one of the busiest photographers in Chicago very quickly so do yourself a favor and get on their calendar NOW! The work and service are unmatched and you'll be extremely happy to have them capture your big day!

We had a great experience with Tony. He arrived early which was nice to not have to worry about where's my photographer? I had looked through portfolios of other photographers and just really like his style. Although it was a little more than the other quotes I feel I was well worth it. The other examples I saw were pretty average. You can tell that Tony has a lot of experience with photography. My pictures turned out great and he got them done so fast! I would highly recommend this company for your photography needs!

Could not have had a better experience with a photographer. Harry was responsive to my initial requests, was punctual, took candid and nice quality photos of our events (trust me, this is not always the case, even with professional photographers!), he sent me the pics quickly, and top of all that, he generously donated to our cause!

I have worked with a number of photographers over my 40 year as a clay artist, and Lane Cameron is , by far the best of any of them as far as professionalism and quality of his work. The work was done in and around my studio in suburban Chicago. Lane spent most of an afternoon on the job, and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for quality work done in a skilled and professional manner

AAA+ rating I spent 16 years as a professional in the photographic industry. After reviewing numerous photographers work, I chose to work with Al because of his outstanding talent. I've been working with him for almost a year and he never disappoints. Always the consumate professional and just a really great guy. He's taken the best pictures of me I've ever had in my life. - Carol

We recently hired Dave for a commercial photography shoot. It was last minute, and he was highly flexible and accommodating. But what we appreciated most was his experience. We work with a lot of photographers, and admittedly, our standards are very high. Dave exceeded our expectations! He provided us with exactly the shots we needed the first time around. Thanks, Dave!

Working with Matthew was great! He was very approachable, creative and had a unique eye for bringing out the best in my photo. I wanted a professional head shot, but did not want the same traditional shot that you see in every photographers portfolio. Matthew's has a great range of work and is exceptional at blending artistry and his photography expertise. He is amazing at composition and really making his subjects stand out in a unique way. I have received so many compliments about my pictures from the photo session with Matthew. I highly recommend him and his work is outstanding!

We recently did our family photography with Vita and had a very positive experience. Vita took the time to understand our requirements and gave really good suggestions and ideas. In fact, of all the photographers we talked to, Vita was the only one who talked about the comfort of our 4 month old baby in the photography session. The photography session was very relaxed and Vita connected well with the family, which really helped. The final pictures look great and I would definitely work with Vita again.

I can't say enough good things about Ms. Latoya!! She was very punctual and ready to get down to business! She shot my son's entire prom send-off (which was extremely busy) and she oozed nothing but patience. One of the things I found to be heartwarming is the fact that she called my son by his name to get the perfect shot. That goes a long way!!! Whether she knows it or not, she's now our family photographer!!! Thank Latoya for creating a memory!

Sylvia is an exceptional photographer, professional and I think more importantly, considerate to our needs; willing to work with us in the planning stages of our wedding. She advised us on what would look good and how light would affect our pictures that allowed us to plan a picture perfect scenario. During the wedding day, she made everyone felt at ease and the day went by smoothly. She had a preview of highlighted photos within a few days and her story telling shots captured emotions. Sylvia is amazing with her camera. Once she's behind that camera, she goes into her own world and just snaps away. She captures excellent candids that become instant 1000 word pictures, she takes beautiful sexy yet classy boudoirs, to amazing wedding photos that every one whom attended can reminisce on or make those whom didn't attend, wishing they did. We couldn't be happier with the level of professionalism, creative excellence, innovation and unique aesthetic design. Thank you for making me feel like a princess on the most important day of my life! :)

    Hi, We are a large siding and windows manufacturer looking for a flexible photographer or set of photographers to help us build our base of photo assets. We need this person or persons to be flexible, capable of shooting without a marketing person on hand, and generally work with us to achieve a vision for the photography. Windows and siding is static and photos can be incredibly boring; we're looking for photography that has some dimension, finds unique ways of seeing the mundane, and that can provide a little differentiation for both product categories - separate or together.

    Hello - I am leading the efforts to help re-brand a company called Peak6 based here in Chicago, where I am working directly with the CMO of the company. By taking a deep dive on photographers I landed on your work and really appreciate your work. I would be interested to see if you are even available for the month of February... Backgroud PEAK6 in Chicago is planning a corporate-wide, brand redesign initiative. As part of that rebranding, photography will play a key role in establishing a “visual vocabulary†within the new brand identity system. We are looking to create highly compelling, visually impactful, and differentiated photography that will visually convey (visual vocabulary) core aspects of our brand. We want the photography to stand out and embody the brand. Choosing a photography partner: We are looking for someone who is eager to partner with us, and actively participate in our brand redesign effort. Someone who will is willing to get immersed in the brand, and help bring the brand to life through photography. As part of our selection criterion, we would like you to come in and take test shots. You’ll have the ability to walk through to get a sense of the various businesses, the space, and the overall vibe. The test shots will be a good “proof of concept†to see how your style and your vision comes through in the photography. We want to understand how your design aesthetic, and overall design sensibility, will translate. We also want to see if we are able to achieve the desired concept and truly bring the brand to life in the photography: • translate brand vision, and concept through your work • ensure relationship is good • feel it can be achieved • helps us to see how stuff lands • bring concept to life, with your expertise While this initial scope is specific to our website redesign, our intention is broader. We are looking to develop an ongoing relationship with a photographer who fully embraces our brand, and would be someone we can hire in the future, on a broad range of ongoing firm efforts. What we’re looking for We’re looking for photography that will be ownable, and uniquely PEAK6. Photography that will create a “visual vocabulary†for the brand—photos that will stand on their own and visually represent key aspects of the brand. For our website, the concept is to let the photography bring the energy and color. The neutral design of the site itself will act as a frame for the photography, allowing for the vividness, energy, and pops of color of the photography to create visual punch.This concept can be applied to the five zones of imagery we’ve identified below as key needs for our visual vocabulary using unique perspectives, vibrant color and light, and creative means to bring energy to the photos. Ultimately, we’re looking for an artistic approach to create a photography style that is undeniably us—photograph that is art. 5-Zones 1-Architectural photos highlighting the unique PEAK6 offices, as well as the interior and exterior of the Chicago Board of Trade building. We are looking for shots with intriguing and unusual perspectives, and creative uses of lenses, distortion, panorama, and lighting. The focus here is more on the space and architecture, less on people. 2. Artistic and abstract images made from architectural detail of the office space, patterns and textures, people, and objects. We are looking for shots with creative use of light, blur, lens flare, unusual perspective, creative depth of field, and shots that turn mundane objects into intriguing images. 3. Narrative shots people, space, and activities within PEAK6 offices and in and around the Chicago Board of Trade. This includes wide shots, mid-rand, and close-ups. We are looking for creative use of reflection, perspective, framing, motion blur, and lighting. Shots of meetings or collaboration should feel as if the viewer is within the group rather than looking in from outside. 4. Bio photos of leadership team that communicate personality, vitality, and activity. These will feature multiple photos of the person in their working environment. Photos will be selected from the same sequence shot from the same perspective, but in different poses. 5. Still lives from within the PEAK6 offices capturing interesting objects, mundane objects made intriguing through lighting and depth of field, unique perspectives, and objects forming patterns. I attached a rough direction baed PDF as well as a few snap shots of our current space. I look forward to your response
