“Photographs capture important moments of our life, and before I met Hank I knew only about such an experience through imagination and other testimonials. However, when I entered his studio and engaged in his vision, Hank brought my imagination to life and allowed me to take part in a session that brought to life precisely what I wanted from the art form. I feel fortunate to have worked with him and anyone else who seeks to do so, I am sure, will feel the same way.”

“Let’s face it … not too many people love having their pictures taken. I’m one of those people. Having said that, I’ve had pictures taken by Hank a few times – on location at work and in his studio. Hank’s kind personality and fun approach makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. He is fun to work with, and he makes you feel at ease, allowing for photos that are never forced or fake.  It’s easy to tell that Hank loves what he does, and he works masterfully with angles and lighting to capture moments in the most creative and professional way possible. The resulting images are spectacular. Hank doesn’t just “take” beautiful photographs … he “makes” beautiful photographs! Do yourself a favor and book Hank @Positive Image Photography – he’s the best!”

“The staff of Schinkel Appraisals enjoyed a very positive experience working with Hank.  His studio is beautifully spacious and inviting.   His personality very warm and professional.   After each of us had our business portraits taken, we were able to view them immediately utilizing impressive equipment and make choices collectively as a group.   The whole experience was by far more ‘fun’ than had been anticipated and we highly recommend Hank’s services to anyone who might be interested in having portraits completed.”

“We had a wonderful experience with Hank as our photographer for our parents 50th Anniversary celebration. This was a special time for us as a family, as we are spread out across Canada and it is a rarity to be altogether in one place. Hank took the time to choose the right location with great lighting to bring out the best in all of us. It is no easy task to bring 29 people together for a family picture, but Hank made it so easy and enjoyable! He had both kids and adults smiling with his easy-going and friendly manner. From start to finish, we couldn’t be happier with the care and professionalism Hank provided our family. The pictures were incredible, and we are so thankful to have had this special time captured in such a beautiful way by Hank. Thank you!”

“As the kids grow up, family pictures are few and far between.  So when the kids come home for a visit, Mom would love to have a family picture – and that is where the groans begin.  For our family, we invited Hank to our home for a few quick family pictures as the kids asked, “do we have to?”  It was a great time with laughs, lots of smiles and great family pictures to capture the moment.  Hank was creative and so easy to work with – we all enjoyed the photo-session (short and painless) and the results were fabulous – even Denver the Dog was smiling!”

“I do not like getting my photo taken but Hank makes it a pleasant experience. Hank is always upbeat and fully prepared for the job. We have been working with Hank for many years. Hank has the delicate task of taking personal photos of real estate agents for marketing material for our growing team. Somehow Hank has always been able to manage the fragile egos and the s
hoot at the same time. Thanks Hank. I would recommend you to anyone (and have).”

“Besides being a professional photographer, Hank is also just a regular guy who sees the natural beauty of life’s both ordinary and precious moments, and has a remarkable gift of capturing them. When we booked our extended family photo shoot, Hank was very accommodating to suit our family schedule and needs. Our portrait session was fun and relaxed, and we are so pleased with the amazing results. Thanks Hank!”

“Dear Hank: As you can imagine I am more than occasionally photographed for my work as a Symphony/Opera Conductor and Motivational speaker! The photo session my wife Ardyth and I had with you for the cover of the JNF Negev Dinner program was one of the most enjoyable and rewarding I have ever had. You know your stuff! You were fun to work with. The results achieved I think are excellent, capturing the essence of our personalities. Thanks for making this so EASY!”

“We had such a great experience with positive image!

We asked Hank to take our family portraits for my mom’s 80th birthday.  The shoot went flawlessly….even with 4 kids!  Hank made sure that the environment was fun and upbeat.  The pictures turned out incredible!  It was hard to choose photos because the majority of them were great.  Hank was a complete pleasure – start to finish – from the first phone call to the final hand shake.  The photos turned out great and there was so much choice when it came to printing options.  This wasn’t my first time choosing positive image and it won’t be my last!”

“This is the second time around that Hank has done our real estate team photos. It was an easy decision to go back to Hank. His pricing is reasonable, his service is excellent and the quality of his work is professional. Most of all, Hank’s friendly and upbeat personality makes the whole experience enjoyable”

“What I love about coming to Positive Image and having my family photographed, is that I know I’m putting my trust in a fully trained, qualified and experienced professional.  Hank is simply the real deal.”

“Our experience with Hank and Positive Image Photography was excellent!  With 15 family members involved, finding a date that worked proved to be a challenge, but Hank was extremely accommodating and understanding of our need to reschedule.  He was always a pleasure to talk to and it is obvious that he loves his profession.  He took the time to find the “perfect spot” for the pictures, and they turned out wonderful!  Thank you Hank!”
