What our clients have to say about us.

“Fantastic results! Donald did a great job working with me to ensure that my better self was being captured and helped me shot a variety of photos that would be very useful. Extremely pleased.”

“I found Donald Carlton Photography on line, did some research, looked through his portfolio and liked what I saw...enough to give him a call and make an appointment.  

I went to his studio, the parking was easy which was plentiful and right in front of his studio. He was respectful of my time, which I hold in high regard. He was ready for me, at the date and time he said he would and delivering on that and being respectful of my time is a huge plus in my book.

Donald was very detailed!! You can tell if someone is just taking pictures or is passionate and knowledgeable and he is a very passionate photographer...and it shows in the final product. I found him to be the most detail oriented photographer I have experienced. I received my photos and I was very pleased because the quality was excellent, all the details he took into account showed (lighting, glare elimination, positioning, etc) and the editing was flawless.

You know when you receive a product if you are pleased or not and I went away very pleased. I traveled nearly 40 miles to get to his studio and I am happy I did and I will again in the future. I highly recommend his services, I will use Donald again in the future and I encourage anyone looking for a great detail oriented photographer to produce high quality products to utilize Donald Carlton Photography.”

"Fantastic experience, would highly recommend! I'm a Realtor and needed an updated headshot.  Don is very professional and does incredible work!  He will guide you through the photo shoot on how to smile and position your body.  Afterwards he will email you all the shots for you to pick the ones you would like retouched.  The final photos were excellent!"

"I needed a professional photo for my website and to put on my business cards. The one I was using was a snapshot from 1998 and I just don’t look like that anymore. Very outdated and unprofessional looking. I found Donald online from Google. I liked the photos he had on his website and decided to give him a try. His studio is in a great old building on Kettner by the Harley Davidson business. It is pay parking on the street. I was there about 40 minutes total. The photos came out so well that it didn’t take very long. You change your outfits in the restroom but it is very big and very clean. Donald takes some shots and shows them to you right away so you can see if he’s doing the kind of poses you want and then he takes more and shows you those. All I can say is that mine came out beautifully. I will be very proud to use them for my business purposes. Donald was very polite and patient. He’s a quiet guy-what can I say, but he does excellent work and you can’t go wrong with him. Thank you Donald! I love the photos!!!!!”

— James Gambale, Qualcomm
