About this pro

How does your business stand out?

We are PEOPLE PHOTOGRAPHERS (ok, Animals too) -- anything that involves people makes us come alive -- we go the extra-measure to make sure we catch the moments that happen (but most people there 'miss' cause there mind it occupied with other things). When the event is completed, more times than not, we hear... "wow, I don't even remember that happening... but then again, you seemed to be EVERYWHERE". Meeting your budget needs is important to us... so, inquire about what you want and we'll do our best to make sure it's available to you, at a reasonable cost.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Well, as is often the case with musicians (and one of the reason we gravitate towards them)... we LIVE AND BREATH our PHOTOGRAPHY (like they Live & Breath performing). Nothing makes us come alive as much as doing the BEST JOB under circumstances that others would just 'throw-in the towel" or give it half the effort. Let's face is... a photograph, taken "right" lasts "right" FOREVER... sure, there's all kinds of retouching "tricks" that can be done (or "effects" that can be applied in photo-editing software) but does that really make the shot BETTER... or does it just become a novelty... something that moves you for a 'moment' and then after years of viewing the image the "interest" in it has faded. Sure, we can do all that "editing effects stuff' but, we'd rather make the final effort seem like it was ALWAYS THAT WAY.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
as for our pricing structure... it's not much different than the "going rate"... BUT, then again that's one of the reason's for the name "CUSTOM DESIGN PHOTOGRAPHY" -- cause We Like To CUSTOMIZE EVERYTHING To Your Needs, Wants and Desires!
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I prefer people to KNOW WHAT THEY WANT... although, that's harder to come by that expected -- after all, many people might "know" what they want but they fail to be able to accurately express it. Our Suggestion is.... show us something similar... we're a master at being able to create something similar (yet different), all while putting a smile of the customer's face when they see the end-result.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Photography, Photographic Scanning & Retouching, Restoration, Portaiture, Models, Musicians, Nature, Groups and more... anything in photography.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
not only is the years of experience important... the usage-rights and ability to meet ALL YOUR NEEDS is paramount. Ask the other photographers you're looking into whether or not they provide the ability for you to use the shots they provide commercially; additionally, be sure to inquire whether or not you must go thru them for the printing or whether you will release the copyright for your needs.
