I had Jerry to take some professional headshots. He knew exactly what kind of photos I want, and took time to get the "perfect shot." He also helped me with some additional enhancements. Great experience, good results, highly recommended!Dec 1, 2014VerifiedJerry Chunn Photography's reply
Thank you, Jack. You were super to work with (very cooperative) and a great person. I hope your headshot serves you well. Most definitely, you have a very bright future. Jerry
We were in need of headshots with a deadline of 'tomorrow'. We found Jerry on Thumbtack and chose him because we liked his website and his professionalism. He chose a great location in Tacoma, working with my 3 year old. Jerry was extremely patient, kind and artistic. It took about an hour and a half to get the best headshots of our little model and actress we have ever seen. What impressed me most is how our little one took to his kindness right away and took no time to warm up to him. Kids can always tell...the photos are AMAZING! Thank you Jerry. Very highly recommended.Nov 10, 2014VerifiedJerry Chunn Photography's reply
Jacquelyn- You are the best of best. I am certain your daughter will make it in the little model-actress world. She is so darn smart for 3 year old. 'Hello' Hollywood!! Canada is going to miss you. Just be who you are, Jacquelyn. Your little model has a very bright future as it starts right here. I can't thank you enough for your sweet review. Let me know if you will need any more photos. Jerry

Jerry took gorgeous pictures of our family. The photo session was at Golden Gate park in Seattle and took two hours. His prices were quite reasonable too. He showed up an hour early to pick out areas to do the shoot. I was impressed by his professionalism, i.e., his ability to make us laugh, his patience, his camera equipment and use of lighting. I would refer him to anyone for any kind of photography work. Oh and guess what...my sister has hired him for Sr. pictures of my nephew!Oct 5, 2014VerifiedJerry Chunn Photography's reply
Thanks, Bonnie. You're a diamond in the rough. You know how to compliment a guy!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Your friend forever- Jerry ps. Let me know if any more family or friends need photo assistance.
Jerry Chunn Photography is the choice! Will meet at any location you desire, or he can choose for you. Very knowledgable about photography and will not leave you with mediocre shots. I would highly recommend and hire again in the future.Oct 17, 2014VerifiedJerry Chunn Photography's reply
Thank you, Jeff, for the quick response. You were my 1st client with 'Thumbtack'. I think you said it right. We had a great time and you received a humungous amount of top photos that look like you. I hope they help you in your new Real Estate career. You have exactly what it takes to be the 'people person' that it takes to progress in that field. I will, surely, look you up on the day I start my new house search!! Stay safe- Jerry ps. Would you believe that my 2nd 'Thumbtack' client moved and left no forward address? lol!!
When the bride and groom live in Mexico, give you a one and a half month's notice to help plan their back yard wedding via weekly 3-way phone calls, you want things to run smoothly, and finding Jerry Chunn was easy after I found Thumbtack. Every time a photographer or baker asked, "When is the wedding?" I'd need to answer, "Yes, THIS September." Jerry Chunn offered to come the day before the wedding for some wonderful pictures of the bride and groom in the Mexican clothes they chose for the wedding. His Wedding Day photos of the ceremony and family and friends are priceless. (P.S. As an added bonus, he even spoke Spanish.) So lucky, there was a space in his calendar to make visual memories of this special day.Oct 9, 2016VerifiedJerry Chunn Photography's reply
Dorothy-- You were such a gracious host. Your home was warm and artistic. That was a Mexican wedding, never to be duplicated. (Thank God, it stopped raining for one day!!) Also, I plan to pay Rick a visit when I go to Mexico, next spring. My Best- Jerry.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?One wedding package includes: A DVD of images 8x8 wedding album and/or standard prints, x number of 11by14's, 8x10's, 4x6's, 3x5's, depending upon size of package time spent, travel included and/or an on-line photo gallery x number of perfectly edited images in variety, all copyrights color, custom, sepia, B/W etc. all negotiable and/or adjustable, at a free consultation. Price doesn't need to reflect professionalism. I can provide high quality images for a reasonable price so that everyone has access to beautiful photos of their special day.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?A fresh new customer is typically expecting only the best. I like to spend as much time as possible to get to know them/him/her, what they are after and an artistic expression and/or vision of what they are trying to discover in still photography. The more I get inside their heart and minds, the more I can add new ideas to an experience never to forget. Once we have established trust and a sense of relaxation, then, we can begin the 2 sided process of expression and enjoyment (the photo session). I always take more pictures than expected and shoot from all angles, using lighting techniques (bouncing light to create the right shadows in the light). I can see through the lens what works and how they look their best. Years of mingled experience are the only words I can use, at this point in time. Yes, the photo sessions have, for the most part, worked out to their expectation, like beautiful memories of a lifetime, to display like art. I think I have found a wonderful way to meet people on their level and to feel humbly satisfied after every photo session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?U tubing is amazing!! Anything and everything under the sun about photography is explained in detail. I'm constantly reading blogs, updating equipment and communicating with the industry professionals. My more intense learning days were with the company, traveling 3 states, working 7 days a week, 24/7, always communicating/learning with the other photographers per phone(company paid for our phone, meals, lodging, gas mileage etc.)marketing, shooting and sleeping in between. Now, it's about doing what I'm best at and enjoy the most. I have a viable bachelors degree, but that's another story. Photography caught me off guard..and, no, I don't regret it. Here's some picture tips: Be a master at composition and light manipulation, take the flash off the camera, use a slave flash, experiment, use angles and create shadows, practice practice practice, master aperture and depth of field, shoot bugs w a 100 meter macro lens, textures, fence posts with fungus, eye balls, pictures people aren't taking, focus on froth of a beer bottle, old people, etc.. How do you find a needle in a haystack?... burn it! No pot potpourri or pretty photos, less is more, homeless people,,,sad and gritty photos. the world is a Greek tragedy.,,draw the viewer into the photo, do black and whites, pics worth framing. Use a wide angle lens, lay on your back and shoot up with a fish eye lens, always shoot early and late...daylight is anti Christ...it's all about the light.
