About

I hired Shawn Nichols for a corporate event which took place in late February 2016. Shawn definitely deserves all five (if I could give any more, I would) stars and a glowing review! I will admit I was hesitant to hire someone off Thumbtack – it was my first experience using Thumbtack and I didn’t quite know what to expect – but he blew it out of the park, completely delivered and really exceeded any of my expectations, with his work for this event! Shawn is going places with his photography, professionalism and strong work ethic and I look forward to following his career. Part of me hates to write such a great review for my own selfish reasons – I want him for all of our events! :] Shawn was hired for our annual corporate Employee Appreciation Event, which I fully planned (and attended) for the first year since starting with my company. One of the things I had noticed about previous years’ events was the lack of good photography. I had seen previous years’ photos and thought they really left something to be desired. When I put out a bid on Thumbtack looking for photographers, Shawn’s website and artwork jumped out immediately, I believed he could deliver. I spoke with him first on the phone and let him know what I was looking for – more artistic shots – and his time, thoroughness and genuine excitement was clearly evident from our phone call. It seemed like he was exactly who I was looking for. About a month before the event, I called Shawn and asked him if he could meet me for coffee that week, to have about a fifteen minute meeting to discuss some items for the party. He went out of his way (literally) to be flexible to my schedule and that fifteen minute meeting turned in to over an hour of his time sitting in Starbucks and talking Photography. From there, he then drove with me to Joann Fabrics to hand-select a backdrop for the event that would photograph well and tailored to my vision. This whole afternoon he spent meeting with me and shopping for photography backgrounds was unpaid. He didn’t have to do these extra things, he just did – he was really going above and beyond before the event even took place! Fast forward to the day of the event. Shawn and his two assistants (oh yeah – he brought two additional photographers to help him capture the night. I really felt we got a huge deal here because for the price of one photographer, we really got three! This was just another way Shawn went out of his way to ensure our event success) came a few hours early to set up one of our photography station backgrounds, and the get shots of a list of things before the event started. Leading up to the event, Shawn was incredible thorough in his communications; answering phone calls and emails quickly and in detail. He even thought of details I hadn’t and prompted me to provide a list of shots I wanted to get prior to the event, during the event, asked for an event timeline and for specific individuals whom he and his assistants should be aware of. I really appreciated those questions in retrospect, as I think they really added to the coverage of the event, and with the laundry list of to-dos I had leading up to the party, I appreciated him taking the time and initiative to look out for our ultimate priorities – photography and otherwise. Shawn and his assistants Rachel and Jeremiah were extremely professional, gracious, thoughtful to guests and efficient. They not only succeeded in my hopes for an hour of couple photos as guests arrived, then roaming event coverage; all three of them really went above and beyond to make sure every shot on that shot list was completed. Our guests loved having the backdrop couple photos, and I loved having all three of them there photographing – it was amazing to get the extra coverage during that couple photo hour that I didn’t know we would have! Shawn let me know the timeline of when I should expect photos delivered back, as the party wrapped up that night, but delivered a few days earlier. He met every goal I had with the photography aspect of the event. I told him several times that he was the easiest/best/nicest/most efficient vendor or staff I had working on our event, and I really do mean that. The photos back to me were in several files, so easy to open and access, and ranked by him in order of importance (for me). His love of photography and art is intrinsic and clear in his work. His photographs are beautiful and really highlighted the event for me, my company and so many of our guests. I look forward to having – and using – these photographs for years to come! During the time I was planning the event, and had been working with Shawn, I saw another opportunity come up within my company which I suggested Shawn, and he was hired for. Those pictures came back prior to our event, and when I saw those beautiful photos, I knew i was going to be happy with his work on the event. I can’t say enough great things about Shawn Nichols. You are lucky if you get the opportunity to hire him for any event, wedding, party, or general photography needs. Shawn will make you feel like you are his only client, and will really take your vision and bring it to life. He is so genuine and charismatic and it is wonderful to see someone excel at something they love, and do so well! I look forward to working with Shawn (and hopefully Rachel and Jeremiah too!) on any future business, event or personal photography needs I have!

I am a photographer with a fine art and fashion background. I graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I value creativity and quality. The images I offer will feature fine tuned lighting skills and professional editing over quantity. No matter the location, I have the flexibility to realize your vision. Making great images for my clients is important. I have a full refund policy because I am confident that whatever the job requires, I will make photographs that not only meet, but exceed expectations. I work around any budget because everyone should have access to photography that really captures who they are, the special moments in their lives, or that smile that helps them meet the love of their life. Having fun during shoots is important to me. When my client and I are having fun, we make our best work. I have worked for Felicia Ferrone and Chris Gentner, two top Chicago designers, for Annie Leibovitz Studio and Hedrich Blessing Photographers. My product photographs have been published in Dwell, Interior Design, and online on Vogue Living: Australia. Let me make some incredible images for you!

About

Just recently I proposed to my fiancé and was looking for a secrete photographer to capture the moment in Seattle WA. I don't live in the state of WA which made the planning that much harder. I looked at dozens of photographers with experience of the place I had picked for the occasion. Without seeing the actual place and only having information on the area from online I wanted to find a photographer that would "scout out" the area and who had great insight of how it would happen. After getting in contact with Ro Ducay and talking about the plan I was certain he would make exactly what I wanted, happen. Working with Ro was one of the best experiences I've ever had with photographers let alone a person whom I didn't know at all or have ever met, to now after the fact being someone I would recommend to anyone. Ro went out of the way to scout out the area and plan exactly how things would go down on the big day. Ro did an amazing job and took outstanding pictures of the proposal. He also showed great passion for what he does and is very professional. He made a timely turn around with them under a week and even included some extras via video of the moment. We couldn't be happier to have picked Ro Ducay and would rate home a 10 out of 5 stars if possible. -Zach

About

I am an experienced designer portrait artist who can help you with head shots, personal and family portraits, candids, magazines, modeling images, spreads, images for websites or articles, events, music promotional and live images, abstracts, and scenic natural works of art. I have been in business creating Wall Art Decor, albums, and fine art prints since 2007 mentoring with some of the best Master Portrait Artists in our industry. I am a member of PPA, PPW, and SPPA. All are local and national professional associations dedicated to professionalism and high quality images. I am also award winning and enjoy serving as a representative for PPW here locally to help other professionals. My clients range from the affluent, organizations, and the successful to the common or unique family with their own way of doing things. I am flexible and professional with all of them. What I care about is giving you amazingly beautiful images no matter who you are! I conveniently work on site or find a location with emotional meaning and significance to you, but I can provide studio quality work at the Seattle/Eastside location of choice. If you wish, I can travel and do vacation portraits. Contact me right away for a free portrait consultation to start designing your individual session. Part of what makes me different is I am service oriented, highly individualized, and I help you choose the details of your experience and what is right for you every step of the process. I find that families have different needs than what traditional studio portraits offer. Simply put, one size does not fit all. Most photographers just have you show up to a location and ask what you want to do. I am like an interior designer. I help you plan your project and provide suggestions and resources to make it look amazing. I am also a full-service professional. I help you plan and design your session, do all necessary artwork in your session, help with ordering options, offer custom framing if needed, and even deliver and install in your home with some of my products. This is perfect for the busy family and professional who wants fine-quality portrait art or someone who needs simple image with superior quality on a budget without looking like it. I also offer business head shots for commercial use, event images, executive portraits, social media images, or artistic images for models, actors and musicians to use in portfolios and promotional material. Note: Please stick your testimonials in the testimonial-only section, not the review section. This helps me get more referrals to awesome customers like you. Thank you. Thumbtack says I only have been hired once on here, but that is not true. I have been hired on Thumbtack at least 3-4 times and for some reason my profile does not list this. Most of my business comes from other referral sources, but I still welcome your business as a quality image artist.

About

I photograph weddings, engagements, and life events. I know they all utter it, and it sounds trite, but I really do enjoy shooting weddings! All people are looking their best, in a great festive mood, and the bride and groom share a love so sincere, and I get to witness and record it all! It is a great privilege and honor to photograph a wedding, and I'm thankful to all the fantastic couples who have accepted me to be a part of this monumental day in their lives. I'll admit it, I'm among those newbie photographers who has only been shooting weddings for 3 years - 25 weddings from those 3 years though. I've followed my passion to photograph wonderful people on their most crucial day, and I have come a long way. I persist to learn from the world's best wedding photographers, and their inspiration assists me by shaping my vision's evolution. If you love the look and style of my work, I can be a fantastic fit for your wedding! Thank you for taking time to view my photography. Michael
