    Rob helped me find confidence in my shoot as I came into the whole thing new and nervous, he made me feel comfortable and helped me with poses and expressions. He definitely knows what he's doing. The finished product was even cooler than what I had expected!

    Headshot Photography
    Verified Review
    Rob did a headshot and some group photos. He was responsive and did the job I asked him to do, all within a few days. His work ethic was professional and his prices were reasonable. He followed up in a timely way with the pictures.

    A professional photographer who works quickly and efficiently while maintaining a great sense of humor. Ron is creative and flexible, open to new ideas. I highly recommend him for headshots and portfolio building.

    Rob is honestly the best photographer I have ever worked with. He first did a photoshoot with my 5 year old daughter and she absolutely loved him. He was sooo good with her and she felt so comfortable around him. Not to mention, the photos turned out great! He captured my daughter's personality perfectly! Then a few weeks later, I worked with Rob myself.. He was very professional, yet super fun to work with. And again, the photos turned out awesome. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Photography degree from Randolph Technical College
How did you get started doing this type of work?
The first time I picked up a camera I was hooked. When I was in high school, many moons ago, I started taking pictures of the young couples at the school during lunch. I'd approach the girlfriends, show them the pictures and they'd get their boyfriends to buy them. When a couple experienced a break up they would naturally start dating other people thus providing me with a constant supply of new customers. When I realized that I could use photography to make an income, I knew it was what I always wanted to do.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I specialize in making quality creative Family Portraits, Commercial Portraits, Senior "WOW" Pictures, Commercial, Advertising, Stock, and Fine Art.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Why should you hire a professional photographer? After all, your cousin just bought a brand new camera and can do it right? Maybe but will you be satisfied? If you aren't happy, what will you do? Hire a professional? But why? You hire professional photographers for the same reason that you'd hire a professional plummer, electrician or auto mechanic. They have the proper tools, experience and know how to get the job done. Pros have a vested interest in you being happy with your pictures and will do what it takes to make sure that you get the end result that you desire. Professionals know how to make you look your best and will put you at ease in front of the camera. You're about to call a contractor to have a ceiling fan installed. Uncle Fred says he'll do it for free. The next day you come home to find a huge hole in the ceiling and a broken new fan on the floor. You're upset, Uncle Fred is upset, you have a broken fan and a costly repair. A professional contractor would have insured that the fan had been properly installed and would, at no cost to you, provided service should a problem arise after the installation. The same is true for a professional photographer. Uncle Fred may shoot pictures every once in a while but the professional shoots pictures every day and will make sure the job is done right. He will be there for you after the sale to make sure the product he delivered is the product you wanted. Piedmont Photo is committed to providing you with images that you'll love for a lifetime. We have the experience to do the job right and provide you with pictures you'll love for a lifetime. We won't leave you with a mess after the sale and will insure that you are happy with the services we provide. We want you to come back to us in the future and will convince you by making your experience fun and relaxing while instilling confidence in our ability to provide you with the best pictures possible. And we'll do all this while making you look your best.
