Jerry is the man! He has a really unique eye for photography. Jerry not only showed up on time but he showed up early to scout the location. He was extremely professional and funny too. Plus he's from Detroit. Jerry promised to get the photos to me after editing within a week but he actually beat his own timeline, and they weren't rushed. I cannot recommend Jerry enough. 10/10

Jerry took the self portrait photos that I used for my book cover unspoken game. He took his time and suggested angles that best portrayed what I wanted. I highly recommend working with Jerry

Jerry was very professional and patient during my maternity photoshoot. He made a stressful day easier and the pictures came out great. He also had many suggestions and was receptive to our ideas. We highly recommend him.

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

    I typically charge under market value for shoots which will not take too much time. It’s not about the money for me right now. It’s about the experiences and pleasure of shooting.

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

    I like to lay out the expectations of a shoot on a shared excel which I’ve created to have a collaborative work environment before the shoot. Keeps everything in order and I don’t miss an expected shot.

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

    I’ve self taught myself photography/videography. I’m an engineer my trade so technology and learning is easy. It’s just the practice that’s necessary for improvement.
