About this pro

I've been a professional photographer since 1981 and a professional graphic desinger since 1992 when I worked in Hollywood (now back in the Great Lakes), and I love to amaze people by creating images others don't--I have won numerous awards for my work. I prefer natural light settings and try to capture moments as rare as the light that falls on them. It's difficult to "create" a moment--capturing it requires foreghought, planning and patience...and good post-production techniques. You can see much of my published work by visiting http://PhabFoto.com and see some of my other creative work at http://gallery.phabriq.com or my other design and production work at http://portfolio.phabriq.com

Seeing smiles on client faces is my favorite moment. And I always get smiles!

    Scott was very creative and his work is unlike any I've seen. He gave us extra time on the shoot and the results are far better than we expected, especially for the price. We will definitely use him next time we need pictures we want to keep forever. Highly recommended

FAQs


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

1) Meet and assess client needs and hopes.

2) Scout for ideal location/visit their preferred location to check for lighting and background requirements.

3) Detail deliverables in advance so there is no confusion as to scope of project.


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

Studied photography in High School (operated my own darkroom/lab), Film Studies at University of Colorado, Graphic Designer in Hollywood agency post-graduate, published professional photograper since 1982. 

I also wrote and published a tutorial/curriculum for essential fundamentals of good photography. You can see that at 4cornersMagazine.com--because every photograph has 4 corners!


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

I work less for the money and more for the experience and to add to my own portfolio (portfolio.phabriq.com). For my experience and published results, I've been told I'm probably a bit too competitive by saying I'll meet or beat anybody else's price & work. But like I said, I love photography more than money I guess.

And, i even just thought up a really corny jingle: "Gimme a try and you'll knjow why. I'll bet my fee that you'll agree."
