I was very happy with my experience with Juan Carlos and Entertainment Photos. He took pictures at my daughters volleyball game. He took over 200 photos, capturing her moments both individually and around the team during games. He then took those and put together a mollage which was awesome. I got two prints of this and gave them to both my daughter and my husband as a Christmas gifts. They absolutely loved them!! I found his prices to be very reasonable and his work is outstanding. My daughter never even knew he was there to take pictures of her. We are having more prints made of some of the other photos. Juan provided me with all the photos digitally on a CD with permission to get more prints. The other part I really liked is that he had a very fast turnaround time. It took just a couple of days to get my pictures, not weeks. I would not only recommend Juan Carlos to anyone, but I plan to use him again. DLS McKinney TXFeb 13, 2014
Juan Carlos is a true professional. From start to finish, I felt like he really understood what I was looking for in a photographer and how I wanted my finished photos to look. I would recommend him without reservation.Aug 20, 2013
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I like to cater to my client's needs. I deliver high quality work, the best service and competitive pricing. I think my client does not want to pay a low price for a product they will not like. It is important to calibrate everything. A $400 photo shoot that is not what the client wanted is more expensive than a $4,000 photo shoot that delivered everything the client was looking for. In the long run it becomes a family heirloom and the better the delivery, the more it will have meaning in later years. When a loved one passes and you have no portraits it is sad. I have worked with small images of loved once passed that were in the background. As much as I am able to bring out the image, it is not as good as a beautiful portrait taken when your loved one was alive. Price is relative to the need of my clients. That is why I cater every price to my client's needs in the areas of "Quality", Service and importance of the artwork.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes. I am constantly researching all of the new camera and lens equipment, capabilities and new features. I am constantly studying and improving my Photoshop skills to maintain a high level of confidence when I am performing live photo shoots at events where it is required that I enhance images as folks look in. It is important to know the latest techniques.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Becoming a photographer was natural to me because I have been around fashion all my life. Photography is like drinking water to me. It just comes natural. Digital art just adds to the craft. I am very particular about my colors, shadows, angles, moments, looks, etc. I have to feel the spirit of my subjects/models and pull their personality into my images. True portraits portray the personality and x-factor of each individual. How true your portraits display these attributes determines my ability to call myself a photographer and digital aritist.
