I can’t say enough good things about Eric Kleinberg. From the very first inquiry discussion to the delivery of final photographs, we were entirely satisfied with our experience. Eric approached our project with an open mind, a high level of professionalism, and a great sense of humor–very important to our team! His work is dynamic, colorful and precise and the photos he took allowed us to introduce our company to the Chicago market with pride and confidence. As for logistics, he was budget-conscious and turned around our portfolio with admirable speed. Working with him was a real pleasure and we look forward to the next time.

I’ve done photo shoots in the past and they’ve always been a little awkward and unpleasant. My shoot with Eric was just the opposite. He made me feel comfortable right off the bat. By the time it was over I was having fun, and it shows in the smiles in my photos. He listened to what I wanted and took that vision to a level that exceeded my expectations. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
