Enthusiasm To Date

I met my friend, Charles, back in 1998 while walking along Colorado Boulevard in beautiful Pasadena. I saw one of his many majestic portraits in the window of his studio. I later learned that Charles won a major award for his portrait entitled: “Father of the Bride”. It was that photo that peaked my interest, and it was that photo that I remembered when I was asked to take a professional picture by members of my Congregation. Upon entering the studio, Charles and I sat down and talked about what kind of portrait was appropriate for someone in my profession as a Minister and Pastor.

After coming to the proper conclusion, we made an appointment to get a nice photo done. That moment back in “98” cemented our professional relationship, and since then, my family and I have taken many wonderful photos from the Time On Film Studio, and each time has been greater than the time before! I just did a sit down with Charles this week: February 4, 2016, and I was simply amazed at the work that Charles did and continues to do for all his clients, which are vast numbers. If you are looking for a professional photo studio, then I can say that Time On Film Studio is the place for you to go. Just give Charles a call and be prepared to be blown away by his ability to capture the best features that you possess on film, and to experience a once in a lifetime meeting with one of California’s best photographer.

I am not sure where I should end, much less where to begin. I had been putting off, for more years than I care to admit, going and getting a professional head shot which I need, not only for my business but also one I would like to have.  I was afraid it was going to be too expensive, NOT. Something I would not be good at, NOT.

Well, I am one lucky guy, because I chose right, when I picked: Time on Film Charles Ng.  I walked in to a very great space. It was the easiest thing I have done in years. Warm, gracious, and very easy to be with Charles Ng is a sheer delight which was really kind of fun.

When one is really skilled they just make it look, all so easy. I felt great right off the bat. Finest  equipment, in a great space, no pretense or airs just easy, easy, easy. Couple of different changes encouraged. Which I liked and I began to get excited about what we were doing.  Charles, is very generous with his time, his abilities and has such an overriding passion, to make it great.

Then you get to sit down while you are right there and go through all of the shots, picking the ones you think might be really good, and then Charles does with a soft touch, a little cleaning and tweaking, you get to see the whole process as it goes and it is great.

Then voila; pictures in hand and or an email sent, you have it right then and there. I could not be more pleased. Charles happens to be local for me but I would say it would be well worth, a couple of hour’s drive if need be. When you have it, you got it and I am a believer when someone is really great the world needs to know.

I met Charles over the phone and just by having a conversation with him, I already knew I would enjoy having my photos done with his company.  I had to have a headshot done for my work and I found him.  First off he is super close to our office which was a major plus (I had no problem going to his studio).  Secondly, his prices are competitive with other photographers in the area but the quality and care he takes with the pictures makes the value that much better.  He has a great personality and I immediately felt at ease and enjoyed the session overall.  Best part was Charles is super kind and funny and even joked around with me to make me more comfortable.  He even went as far as to help me change my look with my hair so I would have some options.  The only thing that could make this experience better?  Maybe free massage?!  J/K  Bottom line:  Fun, simple, and excellent results

Experience: I was looking for a place to take business headshot photo that’s affordable, flexible, and produces good work. Charles’ Time on Film Photography exceeded all my expectations. He was friendly, funny, accommodating, and most of all, he was meticulous and absolutely brilliant in his work. The photoshoot process was fast and painless and Charles provided great directions on posing and expression, which made the photos distinct from casual photos. He was careful with lightning and shadow and made the photos pop but still feeling natural.

After the shoot Charles worked with me on touching up the photos. I got to see him work his magic with Photoshop and it’s clear that he had mastered the craft. He was fast but still attentive to all the little details. I felt very comfortable during my two hours there and never felt hurried during the entire time.

Bottom Line: Until Charles decides to retire, Time on Film will be my go-to place for professional photos.

Charles is the BEST!!! I’m a young and new real estate agent who wants to get a headshot that can show my profession and confidence to potential clients. Charles knew exactly what I need and what I want.  I’m not very good at posing, but Charles helped me a lot.

I’m so glad that I found Charles to do my headshot. Highly recommended!!!
