Pics came out ok. You get to keep 5. They weren't really 'retouched'. Curtis can use some bedside manner improvements. Awkward moments and he doesnt like kids. Two stars bc I wouldn't return and there's a lot of room for improvements

The photography is Not kid friendly .. well he's actually not friendly at all! The Groupon deal says "1 hour photo session" he literally took no more then 15 minutes & only took two generic poses. The only difference between the two was that me and my husband switched sides.. I would NOT recommend him.. save your money people and go with someone who actually loves what they do.

I made an appointment to have pictures of my 2 year old taken since the advertising photo in the Groupon was of small children. When I got to the studio the photographer appeared irritated , he was not friendly nor welcoming , and he made it clear he did not enjoy or want to take pictures of kids anymore. I told him if I had known I would never had made the appointment. We managed to get a few shots of my daughter , after 20 minutes of seeing his irritation and my daughter not warming up to the idea, I called it quits and picked my pictures. I even paid $15 more for an additional picture. He told me he would email the digital sin 7 to 10 days. I took the pictures Sept. 30th. It is October 12th and I still haven't received any pictures .

Curtis was professional and a master of his craft! I enjoyed working with him for my LinkedIn photos and would definitely recommend him to others.

Very professional, nice space. Not so kid friendly. Ive had experience with many photographers and it is nice when the photographer engages with the model. Not sure if it was the groupon or he just wasnt in the mood or if thats his vibe. *shrugs* While he did capture some great shots he wasnt very engaging with my kid. My son 1.5 and enjoys interaction with people in the room. Seemed like everyone was ready for a nap! I do plan on trying again with this company maybe at a differnt time of day (12:30 appointment slot).

From Our Editors

The word "moodology" isn't in the dictionary. Nonetheless, the term, coined by photographer Curtis Jermany, best encapsulates his work, which he describes as "the practice of photographically capturing your many moods." To achieve this, Curtis casts his portraiture subjects in heavy shadow, dramatically emphasizing the sheen of sweat on a young boxer or the fretboard of a talented musician's guitar. While Curtis mans the camera, his team of makeup artists and stylists helps ensure that every pose-striker feels comfortable and confident.

Available for commercial and private work both in the studio and on-location, Curtis's clients range from fashion models to families, kids, and high school seniors. Besides snapping his own photos, Curtis teaches classes that help amateur shutterbugs avoid rookie mistakes such as filling entire rolls of film with close-up pictures of your eye.
