John Bender took our daughter's senior portraits, as well as portraits of our family. He spent as much time as needed with us, both in the studio and at our home (inside and outdoors). John is very professional, and his portraits are flawless. We are very pleased with his work and would recommend him highly.Nov 27, 2013
we have loved Bender Photography for years! John and his outstanding staff have taken our children's senior pictures. They also took pictures of our girls dancing and helped me put together a lovely collage for our mantle. The photographs are true works of art and John works hard to bring out his subject's personality, so that the pictures are "one 0f a kind" not just a bunch of standard poses. Run, don't walk, to this wonderful local business for your photography needs!Nov 27, 2013
All three of my daughters have had their senior pictures taken at Bender Photography. John has a great dry sense of humor which made the session fun and fly by! The staff is friendly and we received the photos in a timely manner. Oh, and they were/are beautifully done!! Would recommend them highly!Nov 27, 2013
My family and I had both individual and family portraits taken by this outstanding studio. All were done with a high degree of professionalism: taking the time to take photos with different poses, lighting and expressions to assure our complete satisfaction. Proofs were delivered in a timely manner with our final selections completed rapidly and at reasonable cost. Highly recommended.Nov 27, 2013
John did a professional portrait for me which is used on our corporate website, twitter, linked in and facebook. It's perfect! John's easy going attitude in the studio was relaxing and fast moving, so I felt totally at easy and love the results!Nov 27, 2013

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Many of the top studios have complicated pricing structures and we do too. It is impossible to explain our pricing structure in a few sentences. But, for most of our clients, they won't know exactly what they want until they see the proofs. We have a large variety of products that can display our images. We work closely with our clients to create a portrait display tailored to their specific needs. What we can say is that we will work with you to assure that you have what you need and not force you into a package with pictures that will end up in a drawer.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All the time. We, meaning myself, my wife, and our associate photographer travel all over the country to participate in professional portrait seminars. Those seminars have been hosted by professional groups like SYNC, SPA, SPI, PPA, SPAC, Triangle Institute of Photography and others. It's fair to say we train with MANY of the top photographers in the industry.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My passion for photography was born in high school in the 1970's I have been doing professional photography since then. Full time since 1983. The passion never died. Still doing it and loving it.
