About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Anyone with a camera can claim to be a photographer. What sets me apart is the quality of my work and my customer service. I have the expertise to produce a great looking photograph and make it into a cherished memory. I'm very easy to work with and I produce high quality photos quickly. I work to make sure my clients get the images they want. I am very proud of my reviews and track record.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love meeting new people and working with them to make the images they want to cherish. I love taking photos. There is something personal about photography. My clients aren't strangers after a shoot, they are people I've gotten to know and when I go home to select and edit their images I have a sense of what they want to see.

    Go with the Black Dog!!
    My boyfriend and I had an excellent experience! Rob had us laughing the whole time. He kept a balance of professionalism while getting to know us personally. He always responded to us promptly and worked very quickly! He captured some very sweet moments of us and our dog. If you're a dog owner you know how difficult it is to get a family picture with your fur baby, so if you want to make them apart of your pictures, go with Black Dog. I can't say enough!

    We had such a great time taking photos with Rob! He was very easygoing which made it even easier to capture the "real" us. This was our first time taking photos together and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    Rob was extremely flexible even though I had to reschedule several times with him. When he came to take the pictures he was very detailed and took his time. And the final product was absolutely incredible. I will be using Rob for all of my real estate photos! Thanks Rob.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I make packages that work for my clients. Typically it is $250 per hour. But that changes based on the type of shoot, the requirements of the shoot, the number of shots and time needed.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We communicate by text, phone, or email and I like to find out what they are looking for. I want to know why they want photos taken so I know how to approach the shoot. I usually recommend a location based on the location of the client and the type of shoot. We schedule a time to meet. I start my shoots off by asking questions and getting to know the client. I need to know my clients so that I know what they want and they need to know me so that they are comfortable in the pictures. We shoot for a while, when we feel we've got the photos we want I go home and start the editing process. When the photos are done, I send a link to the photos with the invoice.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I read, practice, and experiment all the time in the interest of improving. On a daily basis I work to get better at my craft. I do it because I love to and my clients benefit from it.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love photography. I love sharing my skill and passion with others. I like working with people.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Portraits of people, pets, and couples Real Estate Landscape (fine art) Commercial
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I just completed a fall couples portrait shoot which I loved. The couple was a lot of fun. We laughed a lot and got some really great shots. The color scheme for the shoot was particularly nice. I edited in the photos in about a week. So the shoot took a little over an hour and the whole process was a week long.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Try to find the person who best matches you and what you want. Like a writer, every photographer has a voice, he or she makes choices that affect how his or her work looks. You have to find the photographer (and by extension, the photographer's work) which matches you and your needs. The difference between spend $100 on someone with a camera and $200 on a photographer can be all the difference in the world.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Photographs aren't taken, they are made. There is a lot of work that goes into create an image. From preparation for a shoot, planning, taking the images, and then editing them afterward to makes sure they look perfect. Chose a photographer who can make truly fantastic images. You want your pictures to standout and be something you want to share and look at for a long time.
