About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I believe that each photo session is an opportunity for the subject to express themselves as much as it is for the photographer to practice his craft. Every session is a unique experience, and produces unique styles of shots, because every person I shoot is a unique individual. Don't settle for any photographer who will make your headshot look like every other headshot out there. If his book contains a dozen portraits in the same poses, with the same lights, framed the same way, you're not dealing with an artist, you're dealing with an assembly line. In my experience, these photos are very rarely a reflection of the actual subjects in them. And what's the point of that?

    Isaiah was great! We did an office photo shoot, so our team would have professional headshots. He was super professional, on time and had a very quick set up and take down. We actually finished early. We were able to review the photos online with 24 ours and have everything chosen, edited and done within a week. The pictures looked great, but needed some photoshop because the lighting was so bright in the room and the camera so hi-def that you could see every flaw. He adjusted the colors a bit, and I was able to do most of the photoshop myself. I highly recommend him if you need some quick, great professional photos. If you want photo-shopping, you will need to specifically request it or work with someone afterwards.

    I'm happy you were happy! For the record, I would have gone another round with additional editing work if requested. I want all my clients to be 100% satisfied with their images!

    Great job all around. Prompt with emails, arrived on time, and was totally unobtrusive of my surprise marriage proposal while also capturing great shots. Also strong follow-through with editing shots. Thanks for the great work.

    Isaiah has shot production stills for different shows I have been in. He has a real ability to capture the fullest moments with his camera; while not disturbing the process that is going on. A stealthy fly-on-the-wall camera magician. Highly recommended.

    Isaiah did an amazing job taking pictures of my wedding proposal in Central Park, NYC. I am extremely satisfied with his photography. He responds quickly to queries, is reliable, courteous and went out of his way to accommodate me. I would certainly use his talented services again and would highly recommend him and his work. Thank you Isaiah!

    ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! Isaiah was so easy to work with and the final products he provided are SUPERB! I also able to book him last minute (within a day of needing him) and he was on time, friendly, and didn't rush! He was able to provide NUMEROUS photos which he edited and fine-tuned and did an AMAZING job! I would definitely hire him again and I will recommend him to all my friends and family!


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hiring the cheapest photographer that contacts you could be a great deal -- but the more likely scenario is that he or she will be inexperienced and/or ill-equipped. Sometimes going for cheap turns out to be a very expensive mistake. My recommendation is that you take the time to interview several people to find someone with a style that is a good fit for you. This enables you to find the best professional with equipment and experience that is up to the task of making you look great.
