I am absolutely blessed to use my camera to make a living, but what I value most are the lifelong friendships I have developed because of my camera. I have always felt that helping people reach their goals is my calling. It brings me great joy knowing that after just one photo shoot my clients get more callbacks and better job offers that lead to wonderful careers.
I have always been curious about how things work; at the age of two I took apart every phone in my house – The kind that hung on the wall and you literally had to DIAL. That curiosity slowly turned towards photography. I honed my photography skills while attending boarding school. I was enthralled with how the camera worked and spent hours in the dark room developing black and whites. I also used that time to experiment with coffee grounds and other techniques to create different textures and tones for the images on film.
Today I leverage the latest technology available in cameras, but I still use the same principles I learned working with film in the darkroom. To me the camera is an amazing instrument I use to show the world how beautiful and amazing it is through my eyes. Even today I am mesmerized by the powerful beauty, emotions, and memories a 35mm, that fits in my hand, can create.
Who are we if not for the relationships we build with those we meet? What better way for me to share those experiences with those around me than to use my camera and show them-I still believe a picture is worth a thousand words.
To me the image that you put out into the world speaks to the effort you will give to your clients. If a real estate agent doesn't want to bother with a professional headshot and settles for a cell phone selfie; they likely won't want to go the extra mile to sell my house. Our images will paint you in the best light so that your clients take you seriously.
Laura shares my passion for storytelling through media. She photographs alongside me during events, and produces all of our commercial video. We are constantly working together to help you get the best images that represent you well.
This is a wiki definition for what it is we do as photographers.
I hired Dan and Laura for my headshots and am extremely happy with the results. Having a photography background myself, I am especially critical. Not only do they have extensive knowledge when it comes to lighting and how to properly use it, they also have great client communication so that there is no question about what your goals are for your particular photography session. They both have an extremely critical eye and they complement each other wonderfully which results in great photographs. I would highly recommend them for any photography needs.
Recently I began a job search and needed to update my social media presence to better compete in the marketplace. Since I am very uncomfortable having my picture taken, I contacted my good friends Dan and Laura. The shoot was fun and relaxed, and their technical skills made the photographs look great. I highly recommend Dan and Laura Photography, they are great to work with and produce a very professional result.
