Jim did a series of portraits for me. I had a semi-complicated idea involving a lot of props. Jim took the time to make sure my items were represented well yet didn't draw attention away from the focal point (me), but rather invited your eye to wander around the photo, exploring. It was fun collaborating with him on lighting and set choices as well. The photos turned out great and we became fast friends as well. Will definitely work with Jim again in the future!

I had a super positive experience working with Jim. He gave me suggestions as I was posing to make the shot as dynamic as possible, and really listened to my vision for how I wanted the images to look. I posted the photos on Instagram and got a ton of positive comments from friends (and strangers!). If you’re looking for a high-quality and personal photo shoot experience, go with Jim!

Jim was great to work with and provided me with a professional headshot that was perfect for what I was looking for. He asked me a lot of questions before our session so that he had an idea of the type of shot I needed, and got me proofs and a finished product within a week. I would highly recommend him as a headshot photographer!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The cost for a studio portrait session starts at $175. This includes a personal planning meeting in person, by phone or email to discuss the look and style you want for your portrait and up to a 2 hr photoshoot with a single person or couple and 1 outfit change. Includes your choice of any 2 finished digital photos from the session. Finished digital images are high resolution, retouched portraits/headshots with full rights for use and reproduction.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My aim is to tailor your photograph to your vision and purpose. To achieve this I will meet with you, or chat over the phone or email, to listen to your ideas and discuss your vision for your headshot or portrait. Often this involves looking at photographs that inspire you, color palettes, wardrobe possibilities, props, possible themes, or other ideas to set the overall “feel” for your photograph. After we settle on a concept, I’ll create a background set and a lighting design to bring your unique vision to life. My photography studio is a creative space, designed to be comfortable and functional. There is a private bathroom with dressing area to prep hair/makeup/wardrobe, a garment rack to organize potential looks, a shooting bay, and a computer workstation to view images. During the session you have your choice of streaming music. During the shoot, I will offer suggestions for posing, based on what translates well on camera. I will also show you how the photos are turning out throughout your shoot, ensuring that you are happy with the finished product. The whole process of creating a portrait that brings out the “Art of You” will be a fun and rewarding experience, and you will take home images of your best self.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been making portraits for 15 years, and have been a fine art photographer for 25. I have particular expertise in lighting design and creation of one of a kind backgrounds that result in unique portraits that stand out above the ordinary.
