Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hi, my name is Al Bracken! Please >>ONLY<< contact me if you would like to book me for your shoot and do not contact other photographers because it is not free for photographers to receive messages from clients. And guess where you can also find me! I do not offer videography as well. Also, please check out my automatic quote and determine if it is in your price range before reaching out. Thanks! I'm primarily a fashion photographer that does "everything else !" I shoot for 6 Midwest-based model/talent agencies and the top ones I've shot for include Ford Chicago, Wilhelmina New York, Wilhelmina LA, and Red New York. I've photographed Michael Belhing, co-star on 'All American', Makenzie Roony, winner of 'Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid,' Top Model Achenrin Madit, and have been published in Vogue and L'Officiel. I think that is what helps me stand out locally, my background in fashion and entertainment. I also shoot events, weddings, themed shoots, you name it! Thanks for reading this and talk soon! Al

Al did family photos for us. He was willing to come to our house, try out a bunch of different settings, and work with our very high energy little kids. He was particularly good with the kids, letting them be his helpers! Photos turned out great!!

Details: Family or children's portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

We hired Al for our small wedding on very short notice after our original photographer cancelled on us about a week before the event. Al was able to step in and handle the job without missing a beat. The value for the money was hard to beat. Would definitely hire again.

Details: Wedding • Fewer than 25 guests • Outdoors • Digital or online download

Al was absolutely amazing to work with! I’m so happy we decided to book him for our wedding photos. He was very professional. From the time I booked, he provided excellent communication and answered any questions I had up until our wedding day. Our photos were perfect & was everything I’ve imagined. We will definitely book with Al for all of our future events!

Details: Wedding • 50 - 99 guests • Outdoors • Digital or online download

Al did a great job with our engagement photos. His work was a mix of creative poses and more natural-looking shots. We picked a location that you had to hike through the woods to get to, and he was a trooper about walking there with his equipment! Would recommend highly.

Details: Posed engagement photoshoot • Artful composition and lighting • Candid • Natural or environmental • Outdoors • Two locations • Online or digital proofs and prints • CD / DVD • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Not complicated at all! Just tell me what you want!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My typical process for working with a new customer includes them telling me a general idea or concept of what they want, I go away with that info and develop a customized shoot plan after researching modeling agency portfolios /portraits/ business head shots (whatever the project calls for) that I think would work for the client, then I send the plan to the client via email and they give me their feedback. After that, it's left to confirming the shoot date, time and how many edits they need.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am mostly self taught, however, I did take a few classes as an undergraduate psychology major and more recently in 2016. I currently shoot for a talent agency in Chicago.
