Can I give six stars! I would if I could!
This time, I needed headshots for our entire company, and the first person I thought of was Jim Stone! He did... show more such a great job for my professional headshots and I knew how easy he was to work with.
Jim was great to work with and did wonderful work. He made the experience personal for each person, which was nice. He made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed, which isn't an easy task!
I highly recommend Jim Stone for single headshots, or large groups.
I should note that Jim also did some candid shots of our team during a group team building activity and the work was superb! The shots are very natural and he was able to capture the fun we were having!
I needed professional photographs for my website.
Jim took tons of great shots and I was totally happy with all his work. He does a flat out amazing job. But... show more wait there's more. I'm fat. Then as a bonus I got a photo of me alla photoshop where I'm totally not fat. Christmas card! Didn't even ask for that, he just hooked it up. Either way when it comes to photographing people Jim's got the eye for it.
I work for the Monterey Jazz Festival and when one of my official photographers was injured right before the 2014 festival, Jim was the first guy I thought of to... show more replace him on short notice. The shots Jim got this year...I can only describe as stunning and iconic. Just absolutely spectacular. He captured images that got a certain 'feel' of the musicians from angles and locations that no other photographer had gotten --ever -- and I have seen the majority of shots from incredible photographers from 57 festivals. Shooting an event like MJF is a 3-day marathon, and his work on the ground and in the post-production phase was superb. Jim is the real deal. I look forward to working with him again!
