Okay, so I’m a professional photographer for over 30 years now.
You’re probably thinking I am going to bore you with details where I went to school

and all the great things I have done afterwards.
Well, if you are interested in that, you can find that info easily on my Facebook page.


But if you want to know how I can help you reaching your goals, read on.

If you own a business:  How are you going to compete with a market that relies more

and more on visuals?  The advertising channels are flooded with an exhilarating rate

of images and other visuals. 
So how do you stand out from the crowd?
Don't let Uncle Joe with a camera represent your product. You’ll need a professional

photographer at some point to reach that next level in your marketing and sales. 

Everyone’s business model should include at least one professional photo shoot in 

their expenses. Too many small businesses forget to do this and end up trying 

to hire a photographer when their profits aren’t where they hoped they’d be. 

Don’t mess around with your business, hire a professional photographer.


If you are a Family:  Family photos are probably the most overlooked reason as to when you should hire a professional photographer.
Consider this: I recently photographed a family portrait session of a family with teens, that they confessed was their first time they have ever been all together in a portrait. Think about it. How often do you get everyone in your family to cooperate and take family photos together for an hour or two? It’s impossible, unless you have your kids trained well. If you do, that’s impressive, but not normal. Most families have a short attention span when the camera is on a tripod and mom or dad are running back and forth to set the timer. And “Geez mom, stop telling me to fix my hair.” Time flies by and kids become adults in a flash. The next thing you know, you look back and wish that you had at least a few photos of everyone, looking their best, feeling great together.


If you own a restaurant: There are so many different ways you, a restaurant owner, could use pictures of your food to entice the general public to visit your restaurant. You can feature your best dishes on so many different platforms, some of which include your menu, your website, online reviewing sites, flyers, newspaper ads, blogs, and many more. People come to your restaurant to eat your food, right? That’s why it’s important to produce the best images as possible. In order to accomplish this, you need a professional photographer.
