Chris was great to work with! In and out without a lot of fuss and finicky set-up, which was perfect for a big family gathering in a small room with an unhappy baby -- hey, it happens -- and he managed to capture some really great moments in the chaos! Would absolutely recommend C5 Photography. We especially appreciated his availability around the holidays.Dec 13, 2017VerifiedChris R.'s reply
Thank you, Laura and Family! I am glad it all worked out and there were still some good pictures showing the non-fussy kids. Your family was very nice and, having a similar humor to me, gave me some good chuckles.
I had such a great time working with Chris. He was flexible with coordinating a time and arrived promptly. His communication throughout the process was clear and effective. On the day of the shoot, he was prepared. He brought plenty of equipment and was ready for any adventure. He was even climbing on some steel bridges with me to get the shot. He came was plenty of ideas and clearly did some research to what worked and what didn't with fitness shoots. He was able to capture my jumps and other movements effectively and even made some GIFs. Everything turned out great and I couldn't be happier without the final project. Thanks Chris. Hope to work with you again soon!Apr 18, 2017Verified

Q & A
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to work with the customer and understand what they are looking for. It can be something simple or something personal. I'm willing to work with a client to incorporate concepts that meet their needs. If you don't know what you are looking for, I'll ask questions to understand you better. I will even take photos and share them from the back of the camera with you so you can see what is being captured. We can work together to tweak the outcome to fit your needs.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?When I was younger, I found myself taking picture after picture of many different subjects. That eventually grew to where I was able to buy my first DSLR. I ended up taking various online course and continuing to practice on various subjects. From customer referrals and requests, I continue to capture a variety of subjects from scenic and landscape, portraits, product and real estate photography.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I've worked with all kinds of clients; from high school seniors, real estate agents, construction companies, families, and more...
