7 Things Other
Photographers Don't Want To Discuss!
1. A Desire
A photographer must have a burning desire to please the client
and not just do it for the money. To me, seeing the smiles and
tears on a mothers face when seeing her family portrait is the
most wonderful feeling in the world. We desire to create for you
a portrait which helps you look your very best and also which
gently makes an expression of your character and personality. We
will spare no expense to please you. We truly want to create the
finest portraiture for you.
One of the first things you should seriously consider is if a
photographer has a "no nonsense" guarantee. I consider this one
to be the most important of all. Imagine this....you finally
decide to have a portrait taken and after all the plans,
clothing selection, location and then having the portrait
taken...you go to the photographer to view the images and the
photographs are very disappointing. The lighting was wrong, the
posing looked unnatural etc. If the photographer has the proper
experience...that photograph should not be disappointing in the
first place...but if it is not up to your expectations...the
photographer should cheerfully refund your "entire" payments
made..."No questions asked and no hard feelings either." We are
very proud to stand behind our portraits. You must be "thrilled"
when you make your selections or you get all your money back!
3. Looking Good
One of the biggest
concerns people have is "I don't want to feel uncomfortable and
look stupid". My answer is always "You can rest assured that I
myself will get down and show you what to do before I ask you do
it." What this means is, if I feel comfortable, so will you. You
see, I know that most people do not feel comfortable in front of
a camera. I have a secret weapon that I have been using for
years to relax people. It's so simple that it's funny the other
photographers don't think of it. But they are so into the
"technical" part of things, they forget they are dealing with
people and not machines. Our clients always tell me they had fun
Did you know that
wearing the wrong clothes can make a 50 pound difference in the
way you can look in a portrait. I see photographs all the time
that people bring to me from other studios. Oh my gosh...no
advice in clothing at all. So imagine if you put the wrong
clothes on a person and then put that person in the wrong
pose....disaster! We pride ourselves in giving you time tested
advice that has separated us from all the other photographers in
the area. We help you look your very best from start to finish.
We want you to look great and feel great too!
5. Each Portrait Is A
Work Of Art
We don't shove your
portrait in a paper bag and send you on your way. There's more
to it than that. Our superb artists are another reason that the
portraits are so beautiful and complimentary. It is their
careful, loving touch, which helps separate the portraits of
Richard Walker from those created by any other portrait
photographer in the country. When your portrait is completed,
you will be "thrilled" at the results!
6. Our Time Is Your
photograph fewer sessions because we want to take the time and
do it right...the first time. Our guarantee, clothing, location,
looking great and now the time we invest in creating this
portrait, will have your friends and family just marvelling at
what we have accomplished. We don't want to rush. As a matter of
fact, my clients always seem so happy when we are done...not
because they dread the photography session but because they are
anxious to see the final portrait proudly displayed in their
Oh this is a biggie!
The planning of the portrait is just as important as the
portrait itself. A photographer must be dedicated to creating
the finest portrait possible. In order to do that...planning of
the day, time of day, clothing, location and all work in harmony
to create a one of a kind masterpiece to proudly display in your
home. Most studios are too busy to talk to you beforehand or
even care about discussing these things. We are proud to spend
time with you before, during and after the portrait so that you
will be "thrilled" with the results!
