Introduction: Note: With regards to the Coronavirus situation, I will be taking on In-Studio Photography work during the crisis, so long as the State allows us to remain open. I want you to know that I go to great lengths to sanitize my studio after each client's visit, and throughout the entire process it is very easy to maintain a safe distance during portrait or headshot sessions. I can even set up payment online, so we do not have to exchange cash or a card. - Anthony With a background in Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Web Design, Illustration, and Photography, not only do I see things differently, but I bring a unique set of skills to every project, including solutions that a normal photographer might not have thought of. As a business owner, I know how valuable it is to have marketable images to promote your business. I have a great deal of experience working with individuals and business owners to do get the perfect look. The look on peoples' faces when they see the final product of our time in studio means the world to me. *** Please Note: Lately Thumbtack has been referring customers for areas in which I do not specialize. Please keep in mind, I do not shoot weddings, engagements, newborns, or maternity photos. These are all wonderful areas of photography, but they are not my thing. What I do specialize in are headshot, portrait, sports and commercial photography. While I shoot senior photos, I do rarely work with younger kids. If you have questions, feel free to contact me directly.

I was very pleased with the quality of Anthony’s work and his attention to detail. He was also very organized and that made the shoot go very smoothly and efficiently. His work was done at a great price.

Working with Anthony was incredible. Not only was he very patient, but he was also very understanding and had done plenty of research ahead of time to help get an idea of what I wanted for the photoshoot. His advice was extremely helpful, and I will definitely be recommending him in the future.

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

    Please think carefully before choosing your photographer. Thumbtack is awash with amateurs who like to undercut professionals with greatly discounted rates. Just remember, there's nothing more expensive than having to have your photos retaken, or having to settle for mediocre work. I charge an average of $60/hour for most of the work I do. I do this because the level of insight, equipment, education, and experience that I bring to each shoot is worth that. You won't be disappointed. Depending on the nature of the job, I may offer a flat rate for the project rather than an hourly rate. I may also offer a discounted rate if the project is particularly interesting. * Be sure to ask about availability, while I am generally open 8am - 5pm daily, I do have some evenings available, particularly on the weekends.

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

    After an initial discussion about the nature of their project (typically by phone or email), I will quote them an estimate for the cost of the job, and we will set a date to shoot. At that point, I give them some advice for the shoot, what to wear, and any other preparations that may be necessary, so they can come into the shoot ready to go. On the day of the shoot we will go over the plan for the session, and any last minute details before we begin. We'll move swiftly through our shot list and get the images we need and more for variety. After the session, I go through all of the images we shot, selecting the best of these to present in a preview gallery online. I forward this link to the client and we discuss their choice of photos. Once payment is taken care of, I will provide a thumbdrive, CD, or DVD with the photos, or a link from which they can be downloaded. To give you an idea of the turnaround, a typical Headshot session that requires 5-6 final photos, we'll end up shooting 100 or more, from which I will select the best 30-40 for the preview gallery. Depending on the amount of retouching necessary, the final images should be ready in a few days, or sooner if urgently needed.

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

    My father introduced me to Photography as a teenager, I learned to shoot on a film camera that was older than I am (which I still have). Later, during my time at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, I received a more formal studio education including fundamentals of photography, film development, and lighting. Since then I have spent a extensive amount of time on continuing education to develop my understanding of digital photography, studio lighting, retouching, photo manipulation, and direction to get the most out of my clients. I have also had a great deal of learning on the job throughout a variety of types of photography (portraits, headshots, commercial, product, real estate, event, editorial, sports, landscape, etc.). Learning in this field is never ending. I currently have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from MIAD. I am also a member of the Professional Photographers of America.
