Feedback from happy clients

“Carl has done the photography for one of our company’s annual events two years in a row now. I was so pleased with the pictures he took for us. He captured the perfect mix of little details, candid shots and posed shots. Without needing a shot list, he knew intuitively exactly what we would want captured. His candid shots perfectly captured all of the fun, the team work, the joy, and the anticipation of the event. This event is a very big deal to us; we work very hard planning it each year and I am so thankful to Carl for his role in making it a success. Carl is talented, professional and friendly and I look forward to continuing to work with him!”

“Carl was wonderful to work with for my group! We needed headshots done and had pretty specific requests, and he took care of everything perfectly! He was prompt, efficient and had fun all at the same time. I would highly recommend Carl for any photography needs you have in the area. Thanks so much, Carl!!”

“I reached out to Carl with a very short deadline and very specific parameters for product shots I needed. He took extreme care to ensure he was able to fulfill my needs before taking on the assignment, knowing I didn’t have time for a re-shoot. Once he assured me he could handle the project and timeline he got to work and was able to deliver the project with time to spare. The shots were beautiful and his level of professionalism would certainly encourage me to recommend him to anyone!”

“Carl was an AMAZING photographer to work with. We had a somewhat unusual request (to get school pictures done for our students). The unusual part is that we run an organization that works with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Part of having the ASD diagnosis is having communication deficits, sensory overload, social deficits, and behavior problems. It was definitely not an easy task and required a lot of patience to make sure our students understood what was expected of them, to wait for the perfect moment, to get them to smile or laugh, and most importantly, to make them feel comfortable with the environment. Carl was able to do it all. Our families were able to get their children photographed (and in some instances with their siblings), for the first time. It was an amazing accomplishment and the pictures were ADORABLE. Thank you Carl for all of your hard work. We can’t wait to do it all again! “

“Carl is a very talented photographer. He did my business headshot. He took lots of photos, teeth, no teeth, different angles etc. The pose he delivered was perfect and was exactly what I wanted!”

“I met Carl at a networking event and small business exhibition hosted by the Maryland Business Connection (MBX). He had a photo booth/shoot area and was offering headshots on-site. He was a professional, friendly and provided a high-quality headshot in a timely manner.”

“Carl Schmidt is a great photographer. I would recommend him to anyone. In fact, I already have. He is willing to travel to your office to take the pictures, he can work in small spaces, he is very comfortable to get along with, and the pictures come out great all within 45 minutes. Carl does an amazing job.”

“I met Carl during his stint with DevOpsDays in Baltimore in March 2017. He covered the two-day event, capturing key moments and important speakers and organizers of the conference. He did such a great job, we asked him to cover one of our Fearless Solutions events in April, and we were not disappointed! Whether working with a crowd of 300+ or a smaller group of 50, Carl is professional, accommodating, and focused on giving his clients great photographs. The pics were delivered quickly after the events, too. If you’re looking for a photographer to document professional proceedings or capture memorable milestones, we highly recommend Federal Hill Photography!”

“We recently hired Carl to tell the story of our Hackathon through images. Carl was a pleasure to work with – all the way form the initial discovery about the event through to delivery of the photos. Our meetings with him before we even hired him were fantastic – he focused on asking the right questions about how to tell the story of our event. He made every aspect of the interaction enjoyable – even the invoicing was easy! We were very happy with the photos. He took on the challenge of telling the story of a development event. He even took some new headshots and group shots of our Meta Studios tribe! “

“Carl was extremely professional and flexible to work with. He gave me his professional advice and input to make sure I was getting the most out of his photography for my purposes. His attention to detail, and his planning and preparation before the shot made all the difference. The finished product was very high quality and I would recommend his services to anyone looking for professional photography with a photographer who listens to their needs and makes the clients goal his top priority when shooting.”

“Carl is a very thorough and professional photographer. I needed some photography of several local events this past Spring and Carl was up for the challenge. He really made sure he understood my goals and was great about asking for feedback. Definitely recommend.”

“My law firm hired Carl to take photographs needed for a trial. Given less than 24 hours notice, he was able to travel to the necessary location and quickly provided our office with the needed photographs. The quality was great and so were his prices. Also, he agreed to appear at trial, also with short notice, and did an excellent job explaining the photographs for the court. Carl was professional, responsive, and friendly throughout the process. He was very dependable, and I’d highly recommend him to anyone in need of a photographer.”

“From the time we met at a networking group, I felt that Carl’s level of professionalism was of the higher caliber. Not afraid to admit mistakes and speedily address them, our first session went well, but Carl noticed that something was not “just right”. In short, he insisted that we shoot again to get a better shot. This story solidified Carl as my go-to-guy, and I look forward to spreading the word about his great work. Until we shoot again!”

“Carl is an excellent photographer. I needed a professional photo for my LinkedIn and Twitter accounts to replace my ‘selfie’. The shoot was very professional and Carl is easy to work with. The hardest part after the shoot was determining which photo to use! The photo IMHO is ‘on par’ with the best on LinkedIn and Twitter.”

Dave Morris

“I arranged for Carl to take some photos for a new professional head shot. To my surprise, he arranged the shoot at my house, making the scheduling incredibly convenient. Also, this allowed me to be prepared to have photos taken in a couple of different outfits without the awkwardness of changing clothes in a strange place. Carl immediately set me at ease with his professionalism and easy-going manner. He was set up and ready to shoot in no time and we quickly had many options from which to choose. He made the process fun, when it could easily have been uncomfortable – holding your head this way or that, leaning in, smiling, etc. He sent some options to me electronically just days after the shoot and I paid only when I was happy with my selection. I would (and have) recommend Carl to anyone looking for a professional picture for LinkedIn, Facebook, or any other purpose. The improved first impression is definitely worth Carl’s reasonable fees.”
