Joan was a pleasure to work with. I needed portraits of myself taken for professional and social media purposes. She made sure I got the shots I needed and then some. The shoot was a great time, and the photos came out great, it’s so nice to finally have good pictures of myself! I can highly recommend her.Aug 27, 2018Verified

Joan Phinn has been a pleasure for me, my husband and my Doberman Pinscher Samsonn to work with! She has been extremely easygoing and very flexible and has always gone the extra mile to meet all of our needs. This is extremely important because my dog Samsonn is a show dog and we will b eff using some of the pictures as promotional pictures for him. We plan on using Joan in the future at dog shows to take some more pictures of our boy. Thanks Joan for all of your hard work!! We never could have done this without your help!Oct 17, 2020

Joan is a wonderful teacher. You can tell she has a passion for photogrophy and that shows in her teaching. She takes the time to explain your own camer and then takes you out into the field to practice getting shots. I would recommend her to every new photographer like myself. She helped me grasp the concept and I'm able to take good shots after just two lessons!Jan 30, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I prefer to speak to the potential client about pricing since there are many options.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I have a conversation with my clients about what it is they want from their photo session. And, I will give them my ideas as well. This is a perfect time to get the creative juices flowing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied with the New York Institute of Photography. I also take classes online through CreativeLive. And I do a lot of reading of professional photographers articles and books.
