We engaged John to cover a small outdoor reception at a scenic restaurant patio. He was a perfect choice for this project which presented some challenges. He was very responsive and focused on getting what we wanted. We were anxious about finding someone suitable for the task through the website but he was very thorough in nailing down the details. He was familiar with the venue so he was ready to go when he arrived at the appointed time. Very flexible and responsive to our time changes just days before the party. He was very creative about taking a variety of portraits and group shots under difficult space constraints, using the backgrounds that the venue provided to full advantage. We also had guests who were not mobile and he was able to get very nice photos of the group where they sat. And he did all this without disrupting the party, in fact, the portrait-taking became a fun part of the party. He was very personable and easy to work with. We are very pleased with the results. Thanks John.

Thank you John for working with me through all the changes. It’s almost impossible to coordinate a one year old photo shoot. With nap time and everything. John was patient and very professional. I will definitely hire him again! Thank you, John!!

FAQs

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

    I'm very flexible on my pricing, depending on what your photo needs are. I work hard to provide excellent value. I do offer discounts of up to 15 percent for any referrals who sign with me.

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

    I invite the customer to take a look at my web site. If they see photos they like and think we might be a good fit, I encourage them to contact me either on the phone or by email.. During a session I make sure that all customer photo needs are satisfied. After the session I try and give a very quick turnaround for the edited prints, digital media or flash drives.

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

    I have close to 40 years as a professional newspaper photographer and have won numerous journalism awards for photography, editing and writing.
