"It was not only a pleasure working with Tim but he also produced great results.  Tim is professional and attentive to all the details, from large to small, that impact photo quality.  He puts you at ease in front of the camera and provides clear instructions on changes to pose and angles to provide alternate shots to consider.  He’s a master at editing with the subject’s input immediately after the shoot to be sure you’re completely satisfied with the results.  He also sends the finished product out extremely quickly, in multiple sizes so it may be used in a variety of formats.  I now know why he was so highly recommended by colleagues."    S. L. B., Esq.   •••more feedback here
