"Many people think that holding a camera makes one a photographer, as if holding a baseball bat puts you in The Hall of Fame....John is world renown, so when the best matters, he is the only one I depend on. Period!!

"I had an absolutely wonderful experience in my first professional photo shoot. Holy freaking shoot does a professional photographer make such a difference. John and T were wonderful to work with, fun, courteous, informative, and especially patient & guiding. I have seen John's work, again Holy Freaking Shoot, and was a bit nervous to have such a renowned photographer shoot me, but they made me feel ever so comfortable. I thank them so much and a give a 100% recommendation. My photos have been sent to Milan (professional business)."
