John did a great job executing professional head shots for me. He took the time to understand my motivation for having the photos, and how I planned on using them. He was quick and efficient, and provided multiple formats of the finished product to use in different circumstance, whether they would be for website, print, etc. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs professional head shots for their business or personal needs.

John has done many shoots for me such as business headshots for my company, and promo shots for my organizations promoting animal welfare. He always provides close attention to details that matter, and does what he can to give us outstanding images!

Last week our company engaged the services of John Manning Photography to do professional head shots of new employees and existing employees if they wanted a ‘do-over’. i jumped at the opportunity because i’ve never liked my pic (even though i was 7 years younger). Well, thanks to John’s ability to make one very comfortable in the session and his technical skills, he produced a head shot that totally blew me away! Thank you John for your skills and ability to make one comfortable and relaxed. I totally enjoyed the experience and recommend the opportunity to anyone who is looking for a professional, great quality head shot. And John’s access and response to inquiries was unbelievably quick!

John communicated well and responded quickly to our inquiries. The value and quality of work he provided was great! We will definitely be referring friends and coming back to use his business again. He was very down to earth too. His studio is located in downtown and easy to find. Afterwards, he sent us a lot of pictures to choose. We are very happy with his service!

John is an amazing portrait photographer. I am one who is typically not comfortable in front of the camera. John’s friendly style, conquers your trust, and makes you feel like you have been old friends for a long time. With John’s beautiful lighting and eye for detail he will capture your portrait like you were having the best day of your life!

John, I just got the CD and you did such an OUTSTANDING job!!  I can’t thank you enough. I’ve got quite a number of shots to use for this issue of the newsletter, as well as for future issues. I hope we’ll be able to work together again. Thank you again. You have such a great eye for what I need, and did such a fantastic job of execution. I know a title office is pretty dull, but you went beyond what I expected in getting the shots I wanted. All the best,

I came across John’s webpage through a simple Google search when looking for someone to do a professional headshot. When I contacted John, he was very responsive and even willing to set up a weekend appointment. He took roughly 100 pictures and provided an ample amount of options. The process was stress-free, and I am extremely pleased with the quality of the final products. I highly recommend John Manning for your portraits, and I would definitely do business with him again!

I would highly recommend John!  I had him do some professional headshots. His attention to detail is excellent and has a world of experience to draw from. He was upfront about prices which were very reasonable for the great quality of work he does. I was also surprised how fast he sent me some proofs and he asked for my input. I will definitely call John again in the future if I need photos of any kind.
