    Jane Richey is seamless, I had the pleasure to work with Jane on many occasions for my fashion business. She makes the clothes not only look good but makes the fashion "story" come to life. She brings so much to the table and I feel fortunate to have worked with her.

    Jane is an extremely talented and highly experienced photographer who puts her heart into her work. She can adapt to any situation no matter how challenging and she always shows up with big smile and positive attitude. She has great enthusiasm and passion for her work and it really shows. I know I can count on Jane and trust her to do great work no matter what the project. She’s not only an extraordinary photographer, she is brilliant at retouching in Photoshop. Don’t hesitate to call Jane when you’re looking for a photographer.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Fun all-day shoot with "Down-Under" Bluegrass Band, Mustered Courage.  Location scout all over San Francisco, selecting animated, colorful muraled walls as backgrounds.  We started in the Haight-Ashbury, using 4-5 different backgrounds, and they performed on the street as we were shooting - entertaining passers-by; then we moved to the Mission District and shot in a fabulous alleyway, painted with different-feeling murals.  We shot group, and different combos of individuals, as well as single portraits, all used for their publicity/website through Universal Music, Australia.  I directed the group to do still posing as well as wilder tossing of instruments to each other in the air, and walking in the alleyway to capture movement.  Great high energy!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

To do research and understand the quality of the work they need.  To confer as much as needed to prepare properly for the photoshoot, i.e., hiring of makeup/hair artist (done by photographer), proper clothes styling for the types of photos needed, i.e., business, casual, glam, activewear, closeup headshot. 

Be open to photographer's suggestions, and inform photographer of purpose of their photos.  Let the photographer do the creative work

Know what their budget is, and be open to discussing the costs of the shoot with the photographer, according to the scope of the project.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
