Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: A reformed financial executive and serial entrepreneur, I turned a full-time passion for digital photography into a career. I specialize in portraiture photography; both formal and informal, for individuals, families, couples, children, graduates, models and more, but I don't stop there. My portfolio also includes groups, events, residential, pets, performers, architecture, landscape and more. My work has been displayed on corporate websites, social media sites, in email campaigns, magazines, newspapers, book covers, and brochures, not to mention all the photos and portraits in print and in albums. I would greatly enjoy speaking with you regarding your custom photo needs. Call or email me anytime! Steve I love everything about photography, both the act of taking photographs, capturing the moment, the mood and the light; and then the final result, capturing the spirit and essence of the models!

Steve Crane took photos of my Mom's law firm (I have never seen her look more radiant and beautiful...he truly captured how amazingly beautiful she is. ♥). My mom let him know that I loved doing fashion modeling (casual and runway). Steve and I met for coffee and he took an amazing head-shot and I knew we would have a blast on our photo-shoot the next week. I brought some clothes and my Hair Stylist Chesney Mayfield graciously let us use the bathroom in Kiss 'n Tell Boutique on the McKinney Square for changes. Steve, Autumn (his assistant) and I wandered through downtown, had a blast, and got some amazing photos in. After the shoot, Steve treated Autumn and I to a yummy lunch at Mellow Mushroom Mckinney,shared stories, and became friends! I would definitely do another shoot, just for fun with them both!! Can't wait to see his portfolio grow!

Steve has done multiple projects for me for business and personal. I trust him immensely, his work is fabulous, and the rave reviews go on and on. From professional headshots to my daughter's senior pics, he always amazes me!!!

Steve not only produced a great headshot for mer personally, he also produced very professional photographs of my client to be used in a brochure and website. I would highly recommend working with Steve; he's easy to work with, generous with his creative time and produces a very professional final product. Bette Price President, The Price Group

Steve and I have worked together on two photo assignments this year. On both shoots Steve was in full control. He has a great rapport with the clients to make them feel comfortable in front of the camera and in the end the photos turned out great.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have a range of fees depending on the nature of the shoot and whether you come to me or I come to you. All my pricing is fixed fee and unless there are unique circumstances or expenses, it includes all travel, set up, photo shoot, break down, photo edits, touch up, and digital delivery, including print ready formats if needed. There are no hidden costs or up sells. My clients have informed me that my pricing is more than reasonable and highly competitive. I also routinely discount from those fees, subject to a model release form, that allows me use of the final photos, generally for display on my website.

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

    Every client and situation is unique. That is especially true for outdoor, on location, concept shoots, shoots with multiple individuals, or other photo shoots where any number of elements are outside of our full control. However, all my photo shoots have the following characteristics: 1. There is a comprehensive plan. There will be advance consensus on what we are going to do, where and when we are going to do it, and the expected results from our activities. 2. We are going to take a lot of photos, I repeat, a lot… as many as we want, need, have time for, the energy for, or the light for… and we are going to have fun doing it! 3. There will be a lot of photo results. A typical individual portrait shoot will generate no less than 15, and as many as 50 or more, final edited and touched up photos depending on how many wardrobe and backdrop changes we make.

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

    I have been an avid and active student of photography for many many years, initially with 35mm cameras and film, and I still am. Reading books, viewing other artists' works, watching tutorials, attending workshops, and experimenting with those styles and techniques is what I do on a daily basis. Admittedly, my formal education resulted in an accounting degree from the University of North Texas. I also completed some post graduate management studies at Southern Methodist University. But in my defense (Hah!), I have also been a performing musician and majored at various times in art, music, history, philosophy, and psychology. I approach my photography the same way I approached all my efforts in the corporate world: plan it, do it, and do it well!
