I hired Art to take business head shots for my Family Medicine residency application. The total time from booking my appointment to receiving the final photos was less than one week. I am very happy with the final product I received, and overall enjoyed working with Art. He kept communication lines open, was flexible with scheduling, and took plenty of photos during the shoot. If I need another photographer in the future, I will definitely look again to Art.
For anyone interested in a more detailed version of my experience:
I had difficulty finding a photographer who worked with my schedule since I also work business hours. I contacted Art on a Friday afternoon, and he was able to schedule me for that Sunday evening.
When I arrived at his studio, he sat down with me and discussed my expectations. He was kind and receptive to my input. I brought several outfits and together we decided on which would look best. This was my very first photoshoot for business head shots, so I was pretty clueless on what to do. Art was patient and provided clear instructions on how to pose or what adjustments to make. My favorite thing was that he allowed me to review the unedited photos before I left, and he made sure I liked several of the photos.
Three days later, he sent me a link to review the best of the unedited photos and to select my favorite five. He also included a sample of the editing. There were a few things about the editing style I did not like, so I brought these things up with Art. He listened to my feedback. The next day I received the final edited photos and was very happy with the changes he made. I actually delayed my application submission because I couldn't decide which photo to use - I loved them all! I finally settled on the one uploaded with this review. Art is a great photographer to work with. I highly recommend him and will be telling everyone I know to consider hiring him.
