Introduction: As a CINCINNATI-BASED career newspaper photographer (The Cincinnati and Kentucky Post), it was my job to create quality visuals day in and day out. Newspaper photographers have to be able to shoot anything, and I can. I won my share of awards. I have been freelancing for more than twelve years, and as a sideline have taught several photography and lighting classes at the University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University and Antonelli College. I schedule quickly and if needed, can provide digital files on the spot.

Real Estate and Architectural Photography

I stage Airbnb’s throughout the country. Recently decided to venture out and book a pro photographer. I had 5 apartments that needed photography. Bruce did above and beyond. He asked me the right questions and took enough time to get it right. Even when I needed him last minute he was available and punctual. Very kind and easy to work with. I would use his services again in the future.

Bruce was very quick in responding and patiently listen to make sure he understood my requirements. I was not aware of technical details involved in 360 degree photography he took time to explain it to me. And gave his frank opinion about why he won’t be able to do this for me.

Great value, very accommodating. I would suggest Bruce as he not only suggests various poses but goes above and beyond to click the right one.

Background Check

Bruce Crippen


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

    My corporate hourly rate is $125./hour plus expenses. Thumbtack users often receive a discounted rate. Out of the Cincinnati area, travel expenses might be imposed, but clients will always know up-front what the extra charges will be. Clients are always free to back out if costs exceed their budget. We can also negotiate until we find a middle ground acceptable to both parties.

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

    For every job, I want to know the needs and desires of every new and existing client. It helps me prepare for the shoot and have the equipment I need to satisfy my customer. I absolutely guarantee my work.

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

    My bachelor's degree is in journalism with an area of specialization in photography. I attended Bowling Green (OH) State University. Some graduate work was done at Ohio University. I shoot stills, video, and extensively use off-camera lighting. Periodically, I attend ongoing education seminars for professional photographers. I have taught photography, photojournalism and studio & location lighting at Northern Kentucky University, Antonelli College and the University of Cincinnati. As well, I am a member of the National Press Photographers Association and the American Society of Media Photographers.
