    I asked Charles to capture headshots for pursuing acting gigs. I could not have asked for or expected better work!! He is very talented and really just a pleasure to work with. I definitely recommend!

    He is the best photographer ever. He is nice and very patient with his costumers. I and my family loved him and plan on working with more in the future

About this pro

My work is tailored to the needs of the individual client. I'm versatile. In that I've been a freelance photographer for over 20 years, my experience is considerable. I stand by my work. If it were appropriate, a second shoot would be provided. I don't actually recall a second shoot having being needed. But if it were appropriate, one would be provided. I take pride in my work. I can advertise what I do honestly and deliver what I promise. Integrity is important. It seems that photography and working with people is something that I am instinctively drawn to. It is a natural fit.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      The pricing isn't terribly complicated but it does involve several considerations. Among those are location, equipment needed, the desired use/quality of the final product, time involved, special requirements for the job, the proposed budget and any other specifics requirements. I can always give a general price quote for a shoot. When I have more information, I can usually give you a lower quote.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I listen to what they tell me about what they want. I make suggestions and give them options. We arrive at an agreement as to the approach. i give them a price quote in writing. At the shoot, I show them test shots to confirm that we are getting the look they like. We shoot and confirm that they have good choices to pick from. i give them a cd of all of their shots. What follows from that point is based on the nature of the job. They may have me to photoshop retouching on specific images.They may want graphic work or prints, various kinds of files. The job is completed when the client is satisfied based on the requirements set for the work.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      My formal educational background is Business and Economics. With that, I worked as a management a consultant. I use those problem solving and communication skills when working with my clients.
