Introduction: We make the experience positive for all involved. People get nervous in front of a camera. Home sellers get self-conscious about their decor. Marketers feel edgy about product presentation. We strive to create a process that feels positive, and the resulting images show that it's working! There is always a tweak to the lighting, a change in exposure, or a new angle that makes a shot unique. The joy is in the discovery of how to create each image in a way that draws attention to all the right places.

Corporate Headshots

Dan was great- we all enjoyed working with him. He was able to coach everyone into the best pose and we were all able to approve our final photos before he moved on to another co-worker.

Corporate Headshots

Dan was so easy to work with. He went above and beyond to meet our requests, was very professional and delivered our photos ahead of schedule. He knows what he's doing and had great recommendations about coordinating the company photo shoot. There are several people in our firm that are not keen on getting their photos taken and he put them at easy while taking the photos and they're happy with the resulting head shots. He also organized a group photo of our entire team and it turned out great! He knew how to put personality into our photos while making them professional and fit our industry.

The photos Excalibur Portraits delivered were stunning. We would recommend them to anyone needing photography work. The lighting, quality, attention to detail and artistic interpretation were all spot on. Throughout the process all communication was professional, quick and easy. The scheduling, download and payment process were also very efficient.

Real Estate and Architectural Photography

The pictures were amazing and Dan was very easy to work with. Turnaround for the finished pictures was less than 24 hours. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for real estate photography. He will definitely be my first call next time I need pictures.

Real Estate and Architectural Photography

Excalibur's photos of a house for an MLS listing exceeded our expectations! We had trouble deciding which photos not to use because they all were terrific. His photos caused more showings than we ever had with any flip house we ever had. He stays on top of business to give his clients more than they expect. We interviewed 3 companies, & he was the only one who already knew that MLS accepts 24 instead of only 18 photos. The other companies didn't know that. We will definitely use Excalibur Portraits, again.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I was too humble in the beginning to think my photography was special, but when I was encouraged to enter a contest and won, I began to believe in my own talent. Growing confidence led to another few entries and wins in other photo competitions that caught the eye of my very first client. She is still one of my most loyal customers.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    The list is long and growing... Individuals who need a shot for LinkedIn, Realtors, For-sale-by-owners, Etsy and Amazon sellers, Fortune 500s, Parade of homes, developers, commercial real estate agents, families, business start ups. Who knows what's next?!?!

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Only hire a photographer that uses professional lighting. Even outside on a beautiful day a little lighting gear is needed to make an image shine.
