Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I've been studying and practicing photography for the past five years and really began with the theater doing Headshots. Since then I have broadened my horizons and what I strive for is not just a pretty picture but a reflection of who the subject truly is. I have grown up surrounded by people all my life and so I believe that I can capture the beauty of an individual in a moment. I love meeting people and if I can make their lives a little bit better with my work, then that's what it's all about.

Working with James was an excellent experience! I came to him wanting to spice up my dating app profile with some newer and more artistic photos of myself, and he delivered exactly what I needed on that front. He had a helpful Zoom consultation with me first to make sure he had a clear understanding of my vision, and he was very easy-going and fun to work with on the day of my shoot. Considering that I found an incredible partner within a month of putting the finalized photos on my profile, I’d call our collaboration a resounding success 🙂

Details: Solo portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • High fashion (highlights style) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location

I hired James for a boudoir photo shoot. James was very professional throughout the entire photo shoot. He gave great suggestions regarding poses and angles. I felt comfortable, and I was very pleased with how the photos turned out!

I had my photoshoot yesterday December 14th and James was very professional and gave good direction. He was very easy going and made me feel comfortable so I could have some amazing pics. I liked that throughout the shoot he showed me some so I could see how I was doing and that I got exactly what I wanted.

Details: Solo portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Photo studio • Digital or online download • Physical proofs and prints • My home, venue, etc.

Our Valentine’s Day shoot was amazing. We felt like we didn’t hire a photographer, but invited a friend with a great camera to celebrate with us! Looking forward to the next shoot we have together.
