Gerard was great! He did my daughter’s senior photos and made her feel at right at ease. Great shots and super fun to work with. Highly recommend.

He was punctual, early even, with meeting with me. I wasn't in there very long, but we managed to get a ton of good shots for my LinkedIn profile picture. I have to say. He's as good with a camera as he is editing. Never had photos of me that were so good.

Gerard filmed, edited and made a token of memories for years to come. My girlfriend and I are expecting a baby boy and Gerard was able to capture the moment better than I could’ve ever imagined. Gerard showed passion and charismatic, (opposed to my typical experiences) and really put a lot of effort and thought into our event. He came with all the proper gear and accessories and went about and beyond my expectations. Will be booking him many times in the future. BOOK HIM NOW!!

Spent a couple hours in the studio with Gerard and my band mates and I have nothing but good things to say about the experience.

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

    I am more than willing to give discounts provided we have the discussion in advance with no short-term changes or complications.

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

    I want you to tell me what you need, and all I need from you is to be transparent with me on how you feel throughout the whole process. I do my absolute best to be inviting and engaging, but with new customers, I am willing to be more reserved and let them make the first move.

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

    I have been a photographer for 7 years and went to film school and business school. I have worked with musicians, business owners, charities, sports teams, and the everyday civilian. I was mentored for a short time by Suzy Gorman 4 years ago and learned a lot about getting the shot right and the mindsets you need to have for this industry.
