As a 30 + year Pro Advertising and Corporate Brand Photographer, you will be working with a consummate Professional. I deliver high quality Imagery, on time, and on budget, and have been doing so since 1989 in the San Francisco Bay Area. My client list includes National Corporations like Sprint, eBay and ayer, to a host of local firms and startups - Glassdoor, Swinerton Builders and Lendinghome, to name a few. In addition to my varied technical skills in both studio and Location work, my most important attribute is my client relations and customer service. They are equally critical to a successful production as my camera is. Thank you for them opportunity to work with, and for, you. I look forward to your next project!

    Timothy was an absolute delight. We needed professional head shots done to update all of our materials and website. We're a group of 27 that did not have the easiest schedule but Timothy danced around our schedule and made it seamless. In the process of taking our photos he was also kind enough to teach us some tricks when taking any photo. The majority of us did not have much experience in posing for photos so we were extremely grateful knowing how to pose to highlight our best features moving forward. Timothy’s turn-around time was impeccable as well. We had 3 sessions, with each session he was consistent in communicating what his schedule looked like and the progress of each shoot. He was also kind enough to accommodate each individual’s concern when it came to the final touch-ups. For those of us that were unable to come to a final choice, he was more than willing to give his opinion with no pressure. The final product was nothing short of what we wanted, Timothy went above and beyond! Thank you so much for all the hard work, time and effort you put into our sessions Timothy! We would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to get professional head shots!

    Tim was beyond fantastic! Professional. Personable. He made the shoot fun and memorable. He was kind and definitely knew what he was doing. I would highly recommend him (already have) to anyone that wants to work with a true professional. And the results speak for themselves!

    I am a Realtor, listing 20+ homes a year, and use Tim exclusively. Once or twice I have had to use another photographer but no one delivers a prettier, better product than Tim. He understands light better than anyone I have seen. His attention to detail is second to none. If I could give more stars I would!

    Tim was hired to take professional headshots for a group of our executives. He was great! Experienced professional and very personable. His humor made everyone feel comfortable and his laughter was contagious. Although our company has been working with Tim for 3 years now, this was my first time working directly with him, and it was a complete pleasure. The shoot ran smoothly thanks to Tim's flexibility and the photos came out great. We most definitely will continue to use Tim for his services.

    Tim was very attentive and responsive to our requests. He went above and beyond to be sure everything turned out the way we wanted it. We are very happy with the results and would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a professional who knows what he is doing.

    I hired Tim to photograph a skylight installation in Oakland, California. He was quick in responding to every request I had and flexible in scheduling (we had to wait until Christmas decorations came down and he handled the rescheduling with ease). The photos, both of interiors and roof top installation, turned out beautiful!

    Timothy was awesome. Talented photographer, flexible, agile, service-oriented. Would work with him again. Took both executive shots plus hard to shoot new product (appliance) shots. All on a very tight timeline. Thanks!
