Introduction: After many years of people constantly telling me I had an "eye for photography, I finally listened. In Oct 2013 I started ReflectionsNYC. Most people have some type of photo album at home. So you're reflecting on great memories... my photography is simple, I focus on the moments and/or action, and to the details as well. Music is my greatest passion in photography, it's why I pick up the camera. However, I do shoot alot of fashion, do headshots, family portraits/events, birthday parties of all ages, and alot of other stuff. I shoot full frame Nikon.

Jeff showed up very punctually, and I could immediately tell he was friendly and professional. He helped me get the best angles on my roof, and on the streets by me and was very flexible with the multiple angles and my direction. Photos came out extremely nice, and will be using them for my upcoming album artwork on Spotify and all other streaming services. I highly recommend him for your photoshoot!!

Jeff showed up early and was gone within the hour. I needed some headshots for a LinkedIn post — he did a quick turnaround for me. There were 100 proofs in my inbox 6 hours later, I responded with 25 I liked (lots of great shots!) and they came back edited the next day. Other photographers were charging $50+ more and I felt like this was such a great value. Don't love photos of myself so I was surprised I liked so many. Would hire again.

Details: Professional / business • Home • 1 person • No outfit changes • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

ReflectionsNYC's reply
Katie was from the start to finish, an absolute pleasure and joy to shoot her headshots session. She wanted to keep her outfits simple and casual, which we did. Even though she said she doesn't really like taking pictures of herself, it was only minutes after we started shooting, she warmed up and provided plenty of great poses to capture. She also has a nice eye for fashion, which helped alot. Katie also has a very quaint and cozy "living room" which is decorated very nicely. And provided a very nice background no matter which angle we chose. Oh how I wish most of my photo sessions were as easy as this one. Thanks Katie, again, what a pleasure meeting and shooting your headshots.

Jeff is one of the best photographers in NY and that's saying something since we have worked with some of the best!! He gives his all to every project. As Executive Director of Global Stress Initiative I was introduced to Jeff by my spokesperson and dear friend, Three Time Emmy Award Winning Anchor, Rita Cosby for our military event in 2019. His work was exceptional and we have since enlisted his services for all of our events. We have recommended him to several of our foundation partner's events as well as three NYFW shows which we participated in raising funds and awareness of worthy causes from the Runway. All of these entities are also huge fans of his photographic skills. I cannot recommend him and his talent more highly!!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I provide high quality photos, (full frame) of your photography needs. You'll find my rates are definitely reasonable for the quality of photos and customer service I provide. And yes, in certain situations, I'm happy to provide seasonal or other discounts for those with very tight budgets.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Simple, say hello, get acquainted. Talk to them to see what type photos they need, and any specific details necessary to shoot those photos as they request. And depending on the type photos, it's not uncommon for me to also come up with good ideas he customer will appreciate. I always tell the customer when I arrive (if I'm taking pictures of people), to relax, have fun, smile, and we'll get the pictures you need.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm a self taught freelance photographer, no formal photography education. Bottom line, it's talent and "eye for photography" I'm most appreciate and grateful I have.
