    It’s always an amazing experience working with John! His attention to detail, professionalism, and courteousness is unmatched. Each shoot we do is well thought out and organized. John has such a calm energy and always makes me feel comfortable, the results are superb every time. I will always recommend his services to anyone looking for portrait work!

    John is an artist in the most whole sense of the word. I worked with him for the first time back in December of 2021 after he'd done a few of my classmates' headshots and it was nothing short of an artistically fulfilling experience. I've done photoshoots/ modeling before, but as an actor first I didn't expect to gain the amount of appreciation for the work that John does that I did in just one short headshot session. John not only shared with me techniques that would accentuate the shot, but he also encouraged me to not compartmentalize my skills as an actor, just because I didn't have a script in front of me. Truly wasn't expecting to have such a revelation during a routine headshot refresh but I couldn't shake the realization I'd had that art is art is art and that all of the skills we learn are transferrable interdisciplinarily. Even though we are on different ends of the art spectrum, we understood each other's respective verbiage and it made the session so so so enjoyable, fruitful, and special. BOOK. WITH. HIM.

    John is a great photographer with endless creativity! He and I have worked multiple times and I enjoy creating art with him. He is kind and hard working. We have been published in magazines together. His quality of work is professional and breathtaking!

    I reached out to John after moving to the triad area from New York City and was looking for a really great artist to do my maternity photos. I have a particular style and taste and knew I wanted someone who has a great artistic eye with professional and superb camera skills. John definitely does not usually do maternity but after we met and discussed my vision, he thankfully took me on as a client. John is extremely professional and knowledgeable and, at the same time, warm and friendly. He makes you feel comfortable and at ease and his confidence and expertise allows you to trust what he is doing and not worry about getting a good shot. John's studio is beautiful and has everything you would need to prepare for a photo shoot. I cannot recommend him as a photographer enough and I am so happy with how my shoot turned out and that I found him in the first place. If you want high quality photos by a talented artist John is the photographer for you.

FAQs


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

I always want to begin with a conversation discussing the scope and style of the project.  We cover expected costs, establish an initial timeline and make sure we address all of the details.  After the shoot, proofs are provided in a personal gallery, so favorites can be chosen for editing.  Turn-around for the edits is usually less than one week.     


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

On-line training with Sue Bryce Education Series, Creative Live classes, Phlearn.  Instructional books by Syl Arena, Neil Van Niekerk, Roberto Valenzuela, Bryan Peterson.  


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

My commitment to clients is to always treat them like I would want to be treated.   I charge by the hour for shooting and by the edit (clients always choose) for processing.  It is a flexible arrangement to meet the individual needs of my clients.  Full details available on my website www.decoroimages.com


How did you get started in this business?

I've had an interest in photography for many years but six years ago, I made a commitment to pursue it as a second profession.  It's been a wonderful journey and I've had the pleasure to work with so many great people.  Having a studio allows me to provide services that many area photographers are unable to offer.  


What types of customers have you worked with?

I work with individuals on headshots and creative portraits and with models for digitals and portfolio. Check out my website www.decoroimages.com for full details. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I would just say that I'm happy that I have a system for working with clients that consistently delivers the results that they are looking for. 


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

1)  Look at their portfolios, particularly where it is similar to the style of photography that you are interested in.  

2)  Be attuned to the photographer's personality and evaluate whether you would enjoy working with this person.

3)  Ask the needed questions to get a good feel for your overall cost.  Not all photographers are up front about charges and you don't want a bad surprise at the end.  

4)  Be as specific as you can about what you are hoping to achieve.  


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

1)  It is always preferable to work from specifics (style, location, purpose of the image, etc.)  The more detailed you can be about what you want, the more likely your photographer can deliver it.  Sample images from Pinterest, for example, are a great idea!

2)  Budget - a good photographer can help you decide what is achieveable for the budget you have.  Then, you can prioritize, if needed, to ensure that you get the images that are most important.
