I need some photos, but I always look terrible in pictures....
We hear that all the time! We have a secret - the more relaxed you feel, the better your portrait will be. This is why Steve takes a bit of time prior to shooting to get to know you and get you a bit more relaxed. This isn't a dental visit after all!
I need staff portraits. Do you shoot head shots?
You bet! We can travel to your office or produce head shots in our centrally located studio.
Can you make my product stand out at a huge national trade show?
The bigger, the better! We have over 25 years of experience making people, places and products look amazing.

We have the ability to shoot aerial photography from a plane, helicopter or more recently a drone. We have an FAA certified and insured drone pilot on staff.

That depends on the food and what you're wanting. Food stylists bring a lot of specific expertise to the table and are an invaluable resource for certain shoots.
I'd like to have my ad agency direct the shot, but they're in Seattle...
No problem. We've perfected "virtual art direction". A client can be involved with a photo production via the internet anywhere in the world in real time!
The location I need shot is only available for an hour. Can you get the shots we need that quickly?
We know a there are times when a CEO or even an operating room is only available for 5 minutes! We are very respectful of these kinds of constraints and have produced some really compelling imagery in a short amount of time. Having a seamless team of photographer and assistant definitely helps.
