Introduction: I shoot on location - either the clients or a suitable outdoor location. I don't do "K-Mart" photography - standard poses in a standard way. My goal is to create art every time I do a shoot. If you want something unique to yourself or your family - talk to me. Whatever your vision, I will work with you to create it. Special props, locations - whatever you need to help you create the image in your mind. I enjoy creating unique photographs of unique people. I strive to showcase what is special about everyone I photograph. Tell me your vision and together we will bring it into being.

Another fantastic photographer I’ve found via Thumbtack for magazine photoshoot. Grady specializes in individual portrait but is versatile and takes collaboration for group shots well. Pleasure to work with.

Grady did a great job on our family holiday photos. He responded immediately to all my requests and had great suggestions on the photos and backgrounds. We were relaxed and never felt rushed. Loved the finished products and how quickly he turned the photos around. Thank you!

I requested an outside maternity photo shoot at 34 wks pregnant. At 34wks pregnant and also due to some unforeseen complications, it has been a little difficult for me to ambulate without assistance. With this in mind, Grady chose a location that was easy to access and beautiful. Unlike any other photographer I have worked with, he also suggested scheduling an early morning session that would allow great photos and a cooler outside temperature. Grady was very professional, considerate of my condition, understood my needs and provided personalized service. He was able to capture what I envisioned and more. His attention to detail and willingness to hear my requests makes him a cut above the rest. The turnaround time for reviewing the proofs also exceeded my expectations - they were uploaded within hours. I will use his service again and I am very pleased with my entire experience.

Grady was right on time. I told him what kind of outdoor setting I wanted pictures taken and he suggested a good location and gave me very detailed directions on how to get there. He let us take all the different shots and poses that we wanted and he even sent them to me the same day! He was super fast. It only took 30 minutes to take photos and all the pics turned out wonderful. If you need pics done I recommend Grady he's very professional, fast, and a great price too.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to discuss the shoot with my client, so I know exactly what sort of look that they are after. Above all, I want the shooting experience to be enjoyable.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been taking photographs, starting in 35 mm and moving to digital, for 30 years. I have been a Photoshop professional for a major company, creating trade show displays and magazine ads.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I've worked with all types of people. Young couples wanting to save the memories of their engagement, aspiring models, high school and college grads - everyone has a story to tell and a photo to take.
