    Dave is so easy to work with - he is professional and personable. He does excellent work and showed the personality of each dog in every photo. Highly recommend!

  • Melissa Zimmerman

    Dave made sure to get all my clients in photos and still capture the spirit of the event. He listened to what I wanted in a photographer for the event and captured it perfectly. He was easy to work with, early to the event and professional. I had several clients at my event comment after on how great their pictures were. I would hire Dave again anytime!

    Dave has consistently captured the excitement and emotion of our special events. He always goes above and beyond to get amazing photos. We would highly recommend him!


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

I want to know your goal for the project.  That helps both of us establish the vision and goals for the project.  Once we have a plan and agreeed upon the price, I will get everything ready for the project.  The goal is to have a painless and efficient appointment.  Upon completion of the shoot, I will prepare final delivery of the images.

For portrait sessions, I ask to be paid before the time of the shoot.  For larger events or projects, there will be a deposit, with the remaining balance paid at final delivery.

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

I have a BFA in Theatre Arts Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.  I am an experienced theatre designer and producer.  Over the past 10 years, I have taught myself full service photography and video production through services like SkillShare and numerous video courses.

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

Portrait session (60-90 min) $125

Event photography starts at $200

Headshots (individual) $25, (group min 5) $5/shot

Interview (2 camera) start at $250

For larger projects, I prefer to discuss budget with the client before we set the rate sheet.

All of my photos packages include full editing.

How did you get started in this business?

I got started by taking photos at my son's karate studio after I realized how much I loved taking photos.  I am able to use my design eye and sense of story telling to create meaningful images and preserve those special moments.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with schools, real estate agents, and several families.

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

Make sure you talk to them, get detailed quotes, and make sure you have a solid plan in place before pay them.

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

Be realistic in your expectations.  Check their websites and any references.  Make sure you are comfortable, and be specific in what you want because we will all try to upsell you something else!
