Family Portraits

“I want to say that Mr. Cleary was a doll, he was very understanding about my requests and the fact I did not have all the things I needed for the sitting, he was fine with that so I would like to thank him for his time, not to mention the beautiful pictures he took of my family, children and grand kids. Again thank you.”
Judy McCullah, Dayton, Ohio

High School Senior Portraits

“Mr. Cleary, you did a wonderful job photographing my daughter Alexa. She was absolutely at ease and totally enjoyed her shoot. You went over and above the call of duty. I will be telling everyone about your services for the photos, they are absolutely gorgeous. The price of the photos is much more reasonable than any other I have encountered. I do want to thank you again and plan on using your services again in the future.”
Sandy DeHaven, Dayton, Ohio

Baby Portraits

"The photographs Dan has given us have always been beautiful. It is amazing just how good they really are. We did the first year baby plan with Dan and at MaKayla’s 9 month session, she wasn’t in a good mood so we thought there would only be 1 or 2 decent photographs, but there were so many really great shots that we couldn’t believe it. Dan is a true artist, he really makes children feel comfortable. I guess that’s why he always gets such good expressions and that’s why we like him so much.”
Tyler & Monica Kingdom, Springboro, Ohio

 

Business Photography

"It's a major endeavor to redesign a business website and especially challenging when it's for a law firm with hundreds of lawyers. We selected Dan because of his experience, photographic style and attention to detail. Dan did an excellent job on the photographs and in managing the project to completion."

Ellen Geron, Regional Growth Manager, Thompson Hine LLP

Business Photographs for Realestate Professionals

Greg Gillen of Irongate Realty here in Dayton, Ohio came in to update his teams business photographs. Plus he needed new photographs for his car wrap. I’ve been providing professional business photography for 25 years here in Dayton, Ohio. In addition to great  business photography, I retouch and enhance every business portrait so you will look your best, especially in this online universe we live in. I also know what camera resolutions work for how you want to use the photographs. Either on a car wrap, a brochure, or on your web site. These public relation head shots (as we call them) need to be done by a professional photographer who has experience in quality, not just an employee with a “good” camera. There is much more than just point and shoot. Didn’t these photographs turn out great?  A standard business portrait session starts at $60 and includes the session and a finished, retouched digital image of your choice. In all the resolutions you need. Call the studio 937-298-6776 to schedule your appointment.
