Well, I hired Don to take some headshots for me for my acting resume. It took me a few days to come up with the money but Don was patient and worked with me till the end. We set up a time and date that worked for the both of us. Don also helped me locate his studio in Omaha. Once in the studio, Don was very professional and definitely knew what he was doing with the camera. Before the shoot we talked a little bit about each other and what our goal was with the shoot. During my time in the studio, Don was very professional and did not disappoint. I would recommend Don to anybody looking for headshots or any other portrait styled photos!Jun 1, 2016Verified
My family has used the professional photography services of Don Shepard for several years now. Don has a unique ability to create a relaxed atmosphere which always results in phenomenal images and priceless memories. We have used Don for family photos, senior portraits, and even special image requests for home decoration. If you have the opportunity to book Don for your special event you will not be disappointed.Apr 10, 2015

I needed an updated headshot for my social media profiles and new pictures for my website. The photos Don took are spot on and perfectly represent my personal brand. I highly recommend him.Jun 25, 2018Verified
We are happy to have had the opportunity to partner with Don again on another wish. He is very responsive in communication and a pleasure to work with. On this particular photo shoot, he displayed a great deal of flexibility when rain put a damper on the original outdoor location we had planned. He made the best of an indoor setting, providing us with a good quantity of quality pictures. We highly recommend Don and hope to work with him again in the future.May 31, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I don't like to lose jobs over a few dollars, so I often ask potential clients what their budget is, and do my best to meet them at a point that is comfortable for both of us. My entire fee is always up front and there are never any hidden charges.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Communication, and knowing exactly what my client wants from me. This is a partnership that works best when everyone is on the same page.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My adult life was spent in the law enforcement field where I was educated in macro and forensic photography at such institutions as the University of St. Louis School of Medicine, the Southern Police Institute, and others. Additionally I regularly collaborate with and get inspiration from other pros across the country and constantly study the latest trends in editing, shooting, etc. There are countless resources for professional photographers who want to stay on top of their game.
