Joe!!! How are you doing man!? Just recently stopped by your blog and always impressed as always. I haven't been able to update my blog as often as I would like, it's almost another full time job lol. Anyways, just wanted to say congratulations on your website and having the confidence and quality of a professional.
I've considered myself to be a professional as well, but never publicly announced it until recently. I believe that "Every Professional was once an Amateur". That's why I'm always humble to realize how far we've come and being successful of where we are today by letting others giving us the opportunity to show our craft along with so much investment and sacrificing we've had to overcome.
Good luck to you, maybe I'll plan to head down to Illinois sometime and collaborate with you.
My son Tim's photo session was fantastic. Joe and his lovely wife went above and beyond the call, scaling rocks, trudging through mud and finding just the perfect spot to get the best pictures. The best part is they did it all cheerfully and made the experence enjoyable for all of us. I cant stress enough how pleased i am with the entire session. I will refer them to anyone who asks. I'm already trying to find out when the grandkids are coming so I can get pictures of them.
We really enjoyed having a personable and interactive photo session with Grayscale in our son's favorite location...the park!!! The pictures really captured his natural expressions and personality in a relaxed environment. I really like the quality of the proofs so far, along with the variety of editing options. After having paid hundreds of dollars on retail studio pics in the past for propped, staged poses that were "luck of the draw" as a result of the photographers rushing us through like a fast-food restaurant, we find Grayscale's approach to be so refreshing and thorough, without the sales pressure. Plus, we had close to 200 proofs to choose from versus only having one or two poses!! We highly recommend Grayscale to any and everybody!!!
