    Scott is a real pro. I hate taking pics but his professionalism and laid back style put me at complete ease. Thanks Scott!

    It was a delight to work with Scott. I needed a professional head shot. At the end of my session, I several shots I loved. I highly recommend Scott if you need someone who is patience and caring.

About this pro

I don't try to shoot everything. I do portraits and head shots, including dogs and cats, and I shoot events. Because I limit what I do, I can concentrate on making my work in those areas as good as it can be. I'm not distracted by having multiple specialties. I shoot every photo session with your particular needs in mind. I want you to enjoy and appreciate the images we create together, because they're part of the record of your life. If you're not happy with the images, I didn't do my job. I travel to you, and I bring my "studio" with me. I love to shoot in natural light, but Mother Nature doesn't always give us the light we need; so I come prepared with flashes and light modifiers. Every photo session is a collaborative effort between my customer and me. It's not just me directing you in one pose or another, though there is some of that. We work together. During our time together we're a team, and our goal is to get you the images you need and want. I enjoy the challenge of meeting new customers, finding out what photography they need, and then working to deliver the images to meet their needs and desires. It's very satisfying to hear a person say they love the images we created together. Every photo session is a custom session, and that means I'm not tied down to any particular lighting or compositional set-up. I can respond to the situation and location, and I'm free to explore what's possible within the customer's needs and desires. I'm always trying to improve what I do, and I take away something new from every photo session that helps me improve my skills and service.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My standard portrait session fee is $50 plus tax with a la carte pricing for prints. My price list is on my web site. All photo sessions come with digital files suitable for posting on social-media sites. All sessions also come with 4" x 6" proof prints of usable images from the photo session. Digital files will be available on CD, DVD or online download. I do business and actor head shots for a flat fee of $125 plus tax. For that fee you get 4" x 6" proof prints of up to 10 usable images you select plus a full-resolution digital file of one image you select. You also receive a low-resolution digital file of each image you select (up to 10), fully edited and ready to share online. If you belong to an organization and want head shots for more than one person during one session, the session fee is $125 for the first person and $30 per person after that. The session is limited to one location. All prices shown here and on my web site are before sales tax.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      We like to chat with our customers over the phone or in person before we meet for a photo shoot. We want to understand what our customers want and need, and that allows us to properly plan for a photo shoot. Photo shoots normally last 1 to 2 hours, including time we spend reviewing photos on our tablet. Before we complete a photo shoot, we schedule another visit with the customer at their home, office or other location to review the proofs and take their print order. We provide online jpeg copies of the original images for customers to review before we meet to review their print order. These unedited jpegs are proofs only (watermarked) and are not suitable for printing. After the print order is complete and we have the prints in hand, we deliver the prints to the customer.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have been a photographer for 30 years. I was a news photographer in the Air Force and a professional studio photographer after that. I've worked in the photographic retail industry and have taught basic photography. I'm a member of Professional Photographers of America and the American Society of Media Photographers.
