Introduction: Thanks for viewing my profile! I'm an award winning freelance photographer, a vetted member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), and the American Photographic Artists (APA). Both hold their pros to the highest professional standards. From the strobe lighting in my North Downtown studio to the outdoors, corporate and personal events to theater productions, beautiful real estate photography, senior photos, professional head shots, modeling and acting portfolios, product highlighting and many things in between, I offer my clients outstanding services and products, all at a very fair price. I have a very long list of satisfied customers and would love to create something for you! - Don

Portrait Photography

Graduation announcement photos and LinkedIn/Resume professional photos. Don drove out to meet me early on a weekend at little cost and produced final shots that made many of my peers jealous.

Don did a great job for me photographing a building for a project. Very responsive and his work was excellent. Would definitely hire him again.

Mr. Shepard has a confident,relaxed and easygoing personality. He did not make posing or fake smiling a part of the photography experience, knowing that it would only cause discomfort and unnatural looking photographs. My son, who hates his picture taken, was able to be himself. Mr. Shepard kept things short, simple & led my son with a few suggestions just as my son wanted. Mr. Shepard has a innate ability to capture the extraordinary in the ordinary. He effortlessly captured raw emotion in the blink of an eye many times over. While his photography session may not be the cheapest of the cheap, trust me when I tell you it's worth every penny you have!!!

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.

Background Check

Donald Shepard


  • 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?

    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 some of the finest photographers in the industry as well as other pros from 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.
