Incredible talent! Everything ran so smoothly from booking to the photoshoot session to selecting photos etc. Highly talented and wonderful people! Highly recommended! 🙂
A very professional and pleasant experience for people like me who are not comfortable in front of the camera. Daniel explained the whole process very well, and was very responsive. Great photos in a very short time.
Dan is an incredibly talented, professional & kind hearted photographer! One of the best in the Triangle!
Dan provided me with an amazing headshot last summer. He stayed masked and distanced and I loved the final results. It was hard to pick my favorite because I liked them all. He knew how to capture my professional look that I actually enjoy using at work. I have gotten many compliments! Thank you, Dan!
Absolutely loved my maternity shoot with Daniel. Hes a terrific photographer with wonderful quality work. Worry every penny!
Phenomenal experience with a gifted photographer. Daniel is attentive to every detail and a true artist devoted to his craft. I will never use anyone else to provide my public facing image.
Fantastic experience and wonderfully executed session. Daniel is talented, committed to the final product, and dedicated to his craft - a true artist. Thanks so much for the great results!
I was in need of a professional headshot for an internal corporate newsletter. I found Daniel Turbert's info via a google search. Quickly after submitting my info online I received an immediate confirmation for an appointment with all instruction for the session. Danial also responded back to my questions regarding Covid safety to put me at ease. He wore a mask the entire time and requested I wear one between taking shots. He was very efficient in setting the lighting and getting the shots he wanted. He involved me in in the selection process right there in the studio to narrow down to my top 15. Later that same day I received the photos online for me to narrow down to my top 5. I received my final proofs the following day. The photos were of great quality and I was amazed at how quick the process was. I highly recommend Daniel's services.
I'm very pleased with the photos Daniel took. I needed a headshot for my upcoming book, and Daniel did a wonderful job. He is professional and pleasant, and was happy to answer my questions before and during the session. An excellent photographer.
This was a great experience, and I'm very happy with the photos for my online portfolio!
I had the amazing opportunity to work with Daniel for my 37th birthday photoshoot. He was able to execute my vision perfectly! I had no experience in front of a camera but Daniel and his team made me feel so comfortable. I don't know how he does it but he produces some of the most magical photos I've ever seen. I was in need of a last minute makeup artist and he was even able to refer me to an amazing MUA to step in the day of. Everything happened without a hitch. The location we shot at was beautiful but it was a little complicated to reach since it required hiking a short distance. This was no problem for Daniel and his team. He turned something I was so nervous about into one of the most enjoyable experiences. He edited and return final photos back in a very timely fashion. It was the perfect way to start my birthday. lf you can't already tell, I highly recommend him!
Daniel made me feel at ease. He is very skilled in bringing out your best image and his product is exceptional!
Daniel is amazing! The pictures turned out beautiful. I 100% suggest him as your photographer.I am not photogenic and sometimes get really uncomfortable in front of the camera. Since I sent him a Pinterest boards, it was smooth working from those.Further, Daniel has patience!! I showed up late, and he was totally cool about it. I also was not a good mood and he totally empowered me through this process; felt so much better at the end of the session.He is a cool, professional man.
Full disclosure, I do not have much experience with professional photography, but even I could tell Daniel is a phenomenal one. He was professional, friendly, and helpful throughout the process. I thoroughly recommend him.
Daniel was so great to work with! I had to get headshots for my talent agency, and he went above and beyond in taking the pictures. He was flexible and understanding, and helped me really get into character so my shots felt authentic. I will definitely be going back in the future.
I've never had professional photos taken, so I had no idea what to expect and was nervous. In addition, I feel I am not a very photogenic person so photos and photo shots can be frustrating. However, I had a great experience with Daniel! He was patient, super accommodating, asked and listened to my input, and was not rushed. The pictures turned out great! Definitely going to seek his services again in the future!
I was looking to update my headshot on linkedin and found Daniel in Carrboro. He was extremely professional and really walked me through the whole process. I definitely recommend Daniel to anyone in the area in need of a professional photographer!
Daniel Turbert is absolutely AMAZING. I am so happy I found him. When I needed a last minute headshot, he was able to accommodate me and my schedule. I felt so comfortable working with him and he turned around my photos so quickly. He helped direct my poses and "smile with my eyes". I felt like we were on a team. Honestly, I am impressed! I will be working with him again. Give him a shot. You will not be disappointed!
I needed professional headshots for medical school application and Daniel did a fantastic job! I was very impressed with his friendliness, professionalism, and expertise.
I’ve just started working with Daniel, and it’s been a dream come true. The amount of professionalism and creativity that pours out of this man is staggering. As a makeup artist, it’s been amazing to meet him and create beautiful work together.
Daniel and his assistant we're a wonderful addition to our thrown together COVID wedding! They were able to roll with a fairly casual occasion and treat it with the regards of a formal affair. He was a great addition to our day and his color filters are awesome!
I had an "AMAZING" time with Daniel while capturing my headshots'. Daniel makes you feel at home and relaxed which makes it easier to smile and overall have a great time! Daniel did such an amazing job my wife has already stated he will be our family photographer. Daniel....YOU ROCK!!!!
An absolute pleasure to work with. Tailored his work to our style and requests without losing his creativity and great taste. His easy-going personality also made the experience both easy and fun. Our engagement photos turned out perfect, and we’re very fortunate and excited to have him as our wedding photographer.
Daniel Turbert is an amazing and versatile photographer. He has taken my headshots for my corporate profile at work (making me look professional, but not stuffy) and he has taken beautiful and timeless pictures of my children that are hanging in my home and office. He truly captured my free-spirited daughter and my rambunctious and sweet son. I highly recommend Daniel for any of your photography needs.
I used Daniel when I needed headshot for websites. I was expecting a quick in-and-out experience, where he snaps and I leave, then I get a link with a few photos and I select the least objectionable. Afterall, he was the cheapest photographer for headshots and I shopped around. What I found was an easy-going, yet professional atmosphere where he took about 25 photos of me with my glasses and then without. Afterward, we went through all of them on his laptop, omitting the clearly poor images where I blinked, didn’t smile well, etc. The next day I received an email from Daniel with a link to a slew of photographs and it was difficult to select the five required. It was from those five that Daniel would eliminate glare off my glasses, a difference in my eye colors, darken a blemish, etc. I would keep all of those photos but later those retouched five, and it was one of them that I chose for website. He invested a lot of time and made me feel like his only customer. This is high praise from a someone with very high standards. Forget the others; book with Daniel and it’s my opinion you will love the photos and the experience!
Daniel did such a great job with my graduation photos! It was my very first photoshoot and he made it a success by suggesting great poses, understanding my favorite headshot style. He is very talented, understanding, and knows all the secrets to give you what you want. I would definitely recommend him!
Wonderful in every step of the process. I could not recommend someone more and can always count on Dan to provide a great experience and high quality work.
Daniel was a joy to work with and made the shoot about me asking me how I feel and what I wanted! Definitely will work with him again. He does amazing work.
Dan is a great photographer. He did amazing business head shots for me -- the whole experience was so easy and the photographs were beautiful. I highly recommend Dan if you are looking for a top notch photographer.
Daniel Turbert is an amazing photographer who captures life in the most beautiful, breathtaking and meaningful way. He knows how to bring the appropriate lens both literally and figuratively to every scenario whether it be more a more serious occasion or a joyful celebration. Beyond his incredible technical skills he is kind, professional, great with people and will make you feel at ease. Dan has photographed our family and I was given the most precious photos of my children that I will treasure always. Highly recommend!
Daniel is incredibly gifted and has an eye for detail that is very impressive. His easy going nature, high level of professionalism and passion for photography definitely sets him apart from the rest!
Amazing photographer that does beautiful work! Hes very professional but not rude or uptight, makes you feel super comfortable and gives great advice WHILE still keeping a open mind and listening to the model and their ideas! I will continue to work with him again and again!
Our pictures came out great. Dan is a consummate professional and very down to earth at the same time. If you need pictures taken for any reason you’ll be very happy working with Dan. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is and I bet you’ll feel exactly the same way.Keen eyeQuick turn aroundNice studioListens to your wants and needsCaptures your best side
