Recently I re-visited Dore from when I was back in high school taking graduation pictures because I wanted to take a beautiful feminine picture. Not necessarily a glamour shot but a picture that reflected what I felt like I looked like in the mirror to myself, since I'm not typically photogenic. I scheduled my appointment, and all of the staff was on time and very professional and pleasant to work with and be around. They made sure to consult with me regarding what kind of pictures I wanted since they were kind of out of the norm for what they usually do. When I came in for my appointment, I made sure to bring examples of the types of pictures I wanted and with our visions combined the pictures came out BEAUTIFUL!! Its the exact kind of pictures I wanted to take....a casual, pretty picture that reflects my personality. They were very patient with me as well because I'm very picky, so we took over 150 pictures and 6 different set ups for the package that I wanted and I came out with several different wonderful options. My photo shoot was not rushed at all and they made it more relaxing for me because I was very nervous. Afterward you are able to immediately go thru all of your pictures which I liked. When I saw the proofs I was happy with the way the pictures turned out, but when I got the prints I was ecstatic!! I am very happy with my pictures and I'd recommend them to anyone. The retouching that was done was excellent and they've even got my sample picture in the store. Showing my pictures to my family and friends was the best part, because I received the reaction I wanted which is "oh my gosh, you look so pretty! I want a copy of them all, you look like a Barbie!" I plan on going back soon with my sisters and my mom for a Girls' Family Picture.

John at Swanda & Schindler is terrific. He is articulate, concise and efficient. His turnaround time is fantastic. John is also very patient and doesn't mind accommodating a difficult client when necessary. I have searched a long time for an excellent photographer and I have finally found one. I have been using this company for about 5 years and I have never had an issue. One other point I want to make. Our company is very particular about the parameters surrounding our corporate photos. John works with those parameters which results in a great product! You can't go wrong working with this agency. From beginning to end they are top notch! Since John is located in the financial district makes him easily accessible to our employees.
Best in Photography and hands down a Master of Photography and Camera. No one has ever touched so easy by ability to learn. This is Fantastic. The Class by Canon was Amazing. I would re take this class again just to tell Mr. Hanson Fong how much he has changed my life and understanding of my Canon 5.
