I consider Imani as a professional photographer, he knows how to make you feel comfortable and he always find the perfect spot with the accurate light to make the magic happen.Aug 2, 2019Imani P.M. Photography's reply
Thank you Hugo for the kind words! I really enjoyed shooting with you and you did really great job at posing and following directions for certain concepts we tried. I’d love to work together again someday.

My first photoshoot experience was actually with Imani, so I didn't know exactly what to expect. Before starting the photoshoot he explained his idea of how he would like to do the photoshoot, second, since it was my first time I didn't know how to pose so he showed me some examples that helped me a lot. After that we started shooting , but still I was feeling a little bit shy, so he put some music that made stop thinking about how terrible I was and make me pay attention to the music. He was very professional from the beginning to end and also very patience. He was very thoughtful with with the scenario, poses and even the outfit. I was very glad with the result of the photos. I totally recommend!Aug 3, 2019Imani P.M. Photography's reply
Thank you Hyo Un for the amazing review! I’m glad I was able to make your first photoshoot experience a good one and that you were able to enjoy yourself!
I heard Imani was looking for a model to do a photoshoot and so I decided to try working with him. Since I’ve never modeled before, I had not idea what to prepare for but he briefed me in detail on everything from outfit to hair. We shot around a school campus and I was impressed by his background selection. He was able to turn a normal looking place into a piece of art. For example, I was wearing all black but he somehow found the perfect spot in the basketball yard where the sun hit just right and the photo came out super well. I didn’t have so much confidence modeling but when I saw the final product, I was amazed and my confidence shot up! Would really love to work with him againJul 31, 2019Imani P.M. Photography's reply
It was a pleasure working with you too and I’m glad I was able to help boost your confidence and deliver a result you were pleased with. I would definitely love to work with you again too.
During the photoshoot my wife and I had a lot of fun. He was very professional but at the same time very relatable. We aren’t models or anything, so we didn’t really know what we were supposed to do during a photoshoot, but Imani guided us very well so we had a very enjoyable experience.Sep 26, 2019

Working with Imani was a really nice exprience. We were outside of a mall when we decided to take some pictures, and I got very surprised of how good he can make the picture look in a simple place like a mall. Even though I am not used to someone taking pictures of myself, he made me feel confident and comfortable, so I didn't worry too much. I would like to try a photoshoot with him again^^Aug 1, 2019Imani P.M. Photography's reply

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I high school I spent many hours reading books on the fundamentals of photography, working cameras and editing techniques(photoshop). I eventually was able to enter directly into my high school's advanced photography class where I did a lot of practical application, learned about many new concepts, and practice using photoshop on a regular basis. After high school, I continued studying and practicing on my own. I shadowed a couple photographers and had a mentor for some time a couple years ago. Now I would say I am pretty well versed in using in my adobe work flow(Adobe Bridge, Lightroom and Photoshop) and many different photographing styles/genres.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My interest in photography started with nature photography about 9 years ago and I took photos with my phone camera(didn't have a smartphone yet). I got my first DSLR my the summer before I started high school and practiced and studied a lot on my own. Eventually took an advanced photography class in high school where I learned the foundation of my photoshop skills. And years later, I tried my hand at portrait photography after buying a portrait lens. And from that point, worked harder to really make something out of photography.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?The more you know what you are looking for and how to convey what you are looking for, that will save everyone time and very likely save you money. Try to have as clear of an idea as possible of what you are looking before reaching out. It's fine if you can't work out all the details, but the clearer you can be just helps the photographer be able to better help you.
