Shannon has an eye for catching the right candid or a formal portrait shot. He takes time to engage with the customer and looks for unique opportunities to capture just the right moment. His scenery shots are beautiful and a testament to his artistic abilities. Shannon is always looking to catch the funny moments in our lives with a poignant photo. Family photos that Shannon has taken are delightful and charming as he draws you into the moment.Jul 9, 2014
Shannon was very professional, and also completely sweet. He came in and made conversation and got to know the client (my boss), and made sure that she had a good time. Shannon took some AMAZING shots and I would recommend him to ANYONE looking for any type of photographs done!Jul 2, 2014Verified
Shannon is very professional and skilled in his photography, consistently taking multiple shots from various angles before he is satisfied with the quality of his work. A photo he took of my family is now posted as my Facebook cover photo and my desktop photo on my computer at work, and has received many, many compliments from people. It's absolutely beautiful.Jul 9, 2014
Shannon Adelson is a phenomenally talented photographer. I am so impressed with his vision , his "eye" to capture exactly the right moment. I would not hesitate to hire Shannon to photograph a special event, knowing that he would produce excellent photos.Jun 11, 2014
Shannon is a fabulous photographer! A few years ago, Shannon took pictures at a ceremony for my niece. He then created a slide show w/ those pictures. After our whole family watched the slide show, I looked around the room & there was not a dry eye in the house. We were all crying from the amazing pictures and slide show that Shannon put together for us. It was absolutely fabulous and so beautiful! Shannon has been taking wonderful pictures for us ever since that time! I very strongly recommend Shannon!!Jun 30, 2014
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing isn't complicated, but will vary from one situation to another. I attempt to be flexible, and work with as many people as I can. Some can afford more, others can't, and I do my best to provide equal service to both. However, if you answered "I'm not sure yet" to multiple questions on the initial Thumbtack survey, and I didn't bid on your project, then you may wish to contact me privately to discuss what I may or may not be able to do to help you. Sometimes photographers will agree to a certain job in order to bolster their portfolio, or add a special look to their gallery. But since we all strive to make a living (doing what we love), there's a fine line between taking the jobs we love and taking the jobs that pay the bills. If you already know exactly what I'm talking about, then we'll probably get along great!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, and regularly attend both classes and regional events. When time permits, I also routinely watch tutorials on both CreativeLIVE and KelbyOne.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?If you are shopping exclusively by price, you'll probably get what you pay for. But in my experience, with any type of Art (which is very subjective), the best way to get what you want is COMMUNICATION. If I know what you want, and what you like, I will have a much better chance to offer you something that meets your needs.
