It was my pleasure working with Jim. Jim is a experienced & professional photographer. He is very patient when it comes to work. He did a great job for both my Indoor & Outdoor photoshoot.Feb 21, 2018Verified
We are so happy with our daughters senior pictures. Jim made us all feel comfortable and made sure to show us pictures as he was taking them.Sep 6, 2017Verified
Jim was awesome and very accommodating for my daughter's senior pictures this week. I was under the gun for the deadline at school too (I procrastinate EVERYTHING). And my daughter was very specific on what she wanted (a train with graffiti on it in the background). I spoke to Jim on Thumbtack and he scoped out sites and found the perfect site for the shoot. Met my daughter there and took wonderful shots and other shots we weren't expecting! Amber had a great experience because Jim had a great rapport with her and made her feel very comfortable. And let's not forget the price! We got over 100 digital shots and the price was right! All of this within days of me contacting him! Now to pick the perfect picture for the yearbook!!! Too many great shots to choose from!Oct 24, 2014Verified
Jim did a great job with taking our company group photo and individual head shots and editing them to our specifications. He listened to all our requests and the end product was exactly what were looking for.Nov 2, 2017Verified
I have worked with Jim in getting my personal and professional portraits, He was really professional and helpful. He understands your needs and will not give up until you are totally satisfied with the shoot.It was great working with him.Sep 4, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Depending on what I'm doing, I simply like to price such that I'm getting $25 to $50 an hour. If someone nearby needs a quick portrait of their child, I'll charge $50. But, if I'm working several hours, I'll price closer to the $25 an hour mark.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Only in the way of staying on top of gear, plugins, trends, compression, the web . . . those sorts of things. The basics of photography and videography don't change much. It's like a car. You need an engine, a place to sit, and wheels. Everything thing else can change but the basic remains the same.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was in retail selling cameras and had a small freelance business on the side. A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to join a ground floor company doing videos and photography. I had been in retail a number of years and it just felt like it was time to make a change. So, I said "yes". It's as simple as that.
