I’m so excited about my photo session with Dan. He was such a pleasure to work with. I hired Dan because I wanted headshots to put on the website I’m designing for my coaching business. Dan was definitely the right guy for the job.

Honestly, I’ve never been a big fan of having my picture taken, mostly because of my weight. (I’m always the picture taker.) But, when I went to Dan’s studio in West Dundee, he made me feel so comfortable that I felt at ease almost immediately. He even knew all of these little secrets to shaving off a few pounds and after a few minutes, I didn’t feel so self-conscious.

Dan’s studio was easy to get to and perfect. The backdrops, the lighting, everything was great. He even had a screen set up that showed the picture that was just taken instantaneously so I knew if I liked it or not. I’ve never seen anything like that before.

I would highly recommend Dan. I’m so excited!! Now I just need to figure out which picture to use for my website.

What an incredible experience working with Dan. You instantly could see the photos on a monitor which was very helpful in getting the shot he was after. He defiantly was trying to capture a certain look but was always open to ideas and suggestions. Because of Dan’s vision he was able to capture something unique. Dan is very passionate about what he does and I believe it shows in all his photos.

Wow! What a nice time! It’s lots of work trying to get pictures of a family of 7!!! Getting family pictures can be a stressful thing, but Dan made it fun! He was able to get professional pictures taken along with fun pictures and he even let us do “goof off” pictures! None of our five kids complained and they loved being able to see themselves in the monitor as soon as the pictures were taken! We’ll do this more often considering it was not a lot of work at all! Thanks Dan! Blessings on your business.

As a photographer, Daniel R. Sparks is a consummate professional. What you also get with Daniel R. Sparks during your session or event is a well-mannered, good-natured, fun personality!

Daniel has photographed events and benefits that I have been involved in on numerous occasions. My most recent event was a birthday party I had thrown and Daniel arrived to shoot pictures of the band and had previously asked my permission to also include some random pictures of the attendees of my birthday party. I, of course, agreed happily, as Daniel had worked with us several times before. The manner in which Daniel presents himself in a very classy dress casual and his repoir among the vast mix of personalities is second to none. He is very aware of his surroundings and captures moments on digital photography that no one is even aware he is capturing.

One of the best characteristics Daniel possesses during a shoot is that he is completely unobtrusive while catching a perfect moment. He has a way of staying in the background, yet his pictures appear as though he was in the forefront. This is very important when there is a function in progress where many people are in one small place with alot of activity happening sometimes all at the same moment. We were free to be who we were and do what we were doing and all the while, Daniel was illustrating with a distant eye all the goings-on of the evening! There is nothing worse than having a photographer being an interruption and that is what is so wonderful about Daniel’s subtle nature to be courteous, yet skilled at performing what he is there to do.

Daniel will also from time to time, join in on the fun and you will see him appear in the crowd, listening to the band, casually conversing with the attendees of an event, light-heartedly joking every once in awhile and generally just getting along very graciously with the subjects of his services he is hired for. It’s really a perfect fit because it also then encourages sometimes camera shy people to open up and show their personality, that he then capitalizes on. He brings fun and an upbeat personality while delivering a professional and unique photographic collection when all is said and done.

I would never hesitate to recommend Daniel R. Sparks for photography work of any kind and often pass his name and credentials to others. To me, one of the best professionals and an all around nice person!

What can I say about my shoot with Dan? The question is where do I start?!

I’ve always wanted to have great pictures taken of myself but in my case it’s like when can I and when do I have the time to do it? I don’t know if I’ll be comfortable acting “model ish” to do this?

Well people I’ll tell you this… I am one out going and super bubbly person, that’s all the back up I needed to be comfortable with taking pictures of myself and Dan DEFINITELY helps and encourages that feeling!!!

Our shoot that we did was AMAZING!!! JUST ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Dan makes it so fun and comfortable for yourself that you just start to let loose! I can use so many more words to describe my shoot but you all would be reading and reading forever and that means you would be wasting time not scheduling your photo shoot with Dan!!! :0)

When I saw my pictures after we were done….I was BLOWN away! I was like NO way that’s me?!?!? Yes that’s me and holy crap I look HOT! You see yourself in such a different way versus your normal pictures that’s you take with your iPhone or what ever cell phone you have! I was and still am so HAPPY!

Once you see yourself in such amazing pictures like what Dan did for me and what he can do for you…..you’re going to be HOOKED, because I am!!!

Get your vogue on and book a photo shoot with Dan ASAP!!!

I’m glad I did!! :0)

Dan came to our home last weekend to take some family portraits. It was a great day, and we all had a lot of fun. He took a lot of beautiful pictures, and we had many to chose from. My family was very happy with how wonderful they all turned out. This is my second experience with Dan and his photography. We were fortunate enough to have him here for our wedding day as well. In both events, I couldn’t have been happier! He does beautiful work!

Even thought I was a bit apprehensive at the time, I felt that this was something I wanted to do for myself. After arriving at the studio, I felt as though my wardrobe was not up to par and I was a bit nervous. Dan’s professionalism and easy going attitude encouraged me that my choices would be great. I had an amazing shoot. My photos show my true beauty and poise . At one point he ask me to think about some one or some thing that hurt me in my life …….he was able to capture my true self ……..I’m blessed to have had this opportunity and by the way I just turned 50 and have always wanted to have this done and so glad I did!

From the moment I entered Dan’s arena, he made me feel comfortable. He is amazing to work with. He made me feel totally at home. He positioned me as he nailed shot after amazing shot. Dan really understands body positioning and he is a master with light. I would definately recommend working with Dan to anyone looking to try and get that one shot!
