    Craig has been our varsity cheer photographer for all my daughter’s high school years! His pictures are a treasure! I save every single one of them! He knows how to capture her spirit of a moment while maintaining crisp, clear images. And on top of that, he’s super kind!


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

I speak with them to determine their needs and develop a shortlist, or longlist depending on the event, of the important items to capture.  For example, if it is a corporate party, the CEO handing out awards, if it is a birthday party the birthday person.     

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

I have been taking photos for more than 40 years with items being published in multiple newspapers. 

Awards to include best in the show and honorable mentions for historical photos from the USS Arizona. 

My education was with one on one training with multiple trainers and in the military.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Standard pricing starts at $125 per hour with a 3-hour minimum.  

Depending on the event and the location additional charges may apply, this would be Travel Expenses, Per Diem, and Hotel if needed.  

If a special location is needed arrangements may be made for you at an additional cost depending on the venue. 

How did you get started in this business?

I have always had a passion to capture the image of my surroundings.

What types of customers have you worked with?
