Incredible experience. Robert is an amazing photographer who makes sure your photos come to life. He was very detailed, honest, and supportive throughout the entire process. When I received my photos I cried "happy tears". Thank You Robert for creating a unforgettable photo-shoot and photos that will last a lifetime.Nov 29, 2018Verified

I had a great experience working with Robert for professional head shots. We shot a wide variety of poses/backgrounds and I received my photos VERY quickly! I would recommend Robert to anyone looking for head shots.Jun 19, 2017Verified
Robert was great - he was patient as we worked out the location set up and took his time with each person to capture just the right feeling. this was in a corporate setting and he took great care to keep things moving to minimize disruption to our work day. He shared photos as he went to ensure we were getting what we needed. Can't wait to see all the finished photos after he works his magic. I would absolutely hire him againApr 20, 2017Verified
the photos were unconventional, animated portraits of an executive. Robert did an exemplary job of drawing out the personality of the executive; the photos portray the person as relaxed, engaging - everything we hoped for.Mar 7, 2016Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Communications with a new client as to what they are looking for in photography. For example, in doing graduation portraits, what the young graduate wants may be very different (more edgy?) from what the parents want. So I need to cover all the bases in the shoot.
- What types of customers have you worked with?All kinds. From large corporations (Jack Daniels , Northern Trust, Chicago Archdiocese for example) to children, professional head shots, model composites, - and fine art buyers.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?There was a time not long ago when I would encourage clients - particularly aspiring models/ actors/ and even business professionals - to hire a makeup artist (MUA) for a shoot. No more. I now employ state of the art software applications in my "post production" process to create the same effects achieved by a professional MUA. And this process can be dialed up or down to provide the client's preferred level of image enhancement.
