More about Karl

Some notes from past clients.

"I hired Karl to take photos for my business. From initial email inquiry through the completed product, he was exactly the professional photographer that I needed for this project. His response times were very quick, he addressed all questions/concern very patiently and thoroughly and took the time to understand my objectives. Working with Karl throughout the entire process was smooth; he puts you at ease and is fun to work with. I also felt the confidence and trust in his professional opinion and expertise.  Karl went above and beyond to ensure quality photographs and I highly recommend him!"


"Karl did a property photo-shoot for us including our amenity areas we have here at our apartment complex, as well as our apartments and we could not be happier with the product he produced for us. He truly was able to showcase the "Luxury Lifestyle" we offer here at our beautiful community through his photography and we are forever grateful as that is exactly what we wanted to showcase. You can truly tell he puts his heart into everything he does. It means the world to have someone who truly cares, and gets exactly what you need and are looking for to help make your product stand out amongst others. His photography is top notch and we would highly recommend him to anyone!"


"I engaged Karl to photograph two completed project sites for my firm to capture the workmanship and design features of both locations. The timing of this was critical as we needed good daytime and evening images to showcase the site character and lighting.  Weather conditions and our deadline also had to be factored into his timing. The photo selections he provided were beautiful and exceeded our expectations. We were able to meet our deadline of submitting these for an award.  Karl was great to work with and very responsive to our requests. His keen 'eye' was critical to the quality of images we needed. We will certainly use his services again!"


"I recently had a personal branding session with Karl to increase the brand image of myself in my profession and our family business. Karl understands the importance of branding yourself and telling your story through photography. I have just recently been using his photos through my social media channels and am very happy with the amount of attention and recognition they have received. Do yourself a favor and let Karl help you demonstrate your brand, and tell your story!"


"Karl is not just a photographer, he captures the pure beauty in everyone, even if you don't feel beautiful, he will make you look and FEEL like a model. He not only did our family photos, head shots of both myself and Frank, he also did my sons senior photos which my son, the pickiest kid ever LOVED. Do yourself a favor, next time you need a photographer, use Karl!"
