Room Shots

X

Much of my career was forged in and around Room Shots of events, corporate and social

Simply said, "Room Shots are the art of capturing the look and feel of an event space in all its beauty and splendor, before the guests come in and destroy it." The images are often used to show a sponsor or client where and how their investment was spent, for a planner or decorator to showcase or use for future marketing, or simply to remember a spectacular event.

A few of my most memorable images were created in venues from Cesars Palace to the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. to the Opera House in Sydney, Australia, City Hall in San Francisco, CA to JEMS Beer Factory in Petah Tiqwa, Israel.

Naughty or Nice, Personal or Professional, Studio or on Location - this is simply what I love to do.

Portraits are a time stamp in our lives, a simply snap of a shutter that makes us momentarily immortal. Take the time, make the right investment, you can never go wrong when the image is right.

For those a bit shy to the camera... please, give me a moment to speak to you on the phone or in person, I will do everything in my power to make you relaxed and comfortable while still achiving the goal of an image you can be proud of.

My main studio is in Rockville, MD. More than 3000 sq. feet of space with 20' ceilings. Equipped with a bay day for large sets, motor cycles or cars, dressing rooms and make up areas. We can shoot individuals or groups up to 100.

Weddings

X
Section image img 2130

I am a classically trained portrait photographer who had the priviledge to be groomed by the late portrait master Monte Zucker. My approach to Weddings is really quite simply; listen to my clients dreams, then use more than 20 years of experience to make them a reality.

Creating images of people is simply what makes me happy, it's truly what I love to do.

@vizwow

From my first wedding in 1979 to capturing Super Bowls, Final 4's and the Sugar Bowl, NATO, 6 Presidential Inaugurals, thousands of Weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Corporate Events and Galas, Business Portraits to Senior Portraits, Maternity photos, children and families, Israeli Dance Festivals to C-Unit (modern dance) recitals, Green Screens or Step & Repeat Photo Ops, I just love what I do. 

Now being represented by The Washington Talent Agency where my event life first began as a guitar player and DJ in high school, life could not be any better. I've shot Weddings & Bar Mitzvahs in Aruba and Israel, travelled 46 states in the US, captured corporate events in Sydney, Australia, Vancouver, B.C., Sao Paulo, Brazil and Madrid, Spain. What's not to like?

Working with my wife Monica every day, watching my son David grow up and follow my footsteps, and thrilled that my daughter Deanna just finished her sophmore year at IUP as a communications major, which means she finally had to take photography! After 13 years under the studio name of MH Photography & Concepts (my old studio on Montrose Road), it's great to be back at WTA. My partners at Washington Talent have entrusted me with running the Photography and Video divisions, my team manages the photo novelies and photo booths and I still get to work with the Bands, MCs & DJs. At WTA I wear two very different hats, Creative Director and Chief Information Officer"It's a dream come true."  

I love photography and will do everything in my power to exceed your expectations with every product and service that you need from me and my team, whatever the project may be. Our Washington Photo family now 12 photographers deep including Alison, my studio manager (who keeps me pointed in the right direction). We are all poised and ready for any event; corporate or social, large or small.

You can reach me at Washington Talent, 301.762.1800 extension 128, or send email to jack@washingtontalent.com. If I'm not available, please speak to anyone at WTA or ask for Alison at extension 410 or Monica at extension 148.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and the opportunity to be a part of your event and your life.

All the best,

JACK

TESTIMONIALS

 

Actors/Fashion

X

In the studio or live at events, character actors can make or break an event. Capturing them doing what they do best is our job.

WTA Un-Plugged

X

The Washington Talent Agency is a very special place to work for me. In high school, I played in the band Milestone, was one of two DJs in 1984-1989, and came back to help with marketing and bring photography to WTA in 2004. After nearly 10 years back, I can tell you that this is a very special group of people. 

Under the leadership of Robert and Chuck, more than a dozen Bands, 30+ MCs & DJs, Photographers and Videographers all compete with each other week in and week out, yet hang out and play together as friends at our annual WTA Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving Day. Of course there are also a few other images where we are not just playing football.

There are many great WTA internal events.... enjoy this rare glance into what we do when we're not "doing it" for you. :-)

This is truly the best of WTA.

Blessed by long standing relatioships with the Washington Redskins, Redskins Alumni, Sam Huff, Michael Wilbon & DCCap, Fight for Children, Lorenzo Alexander, NFL Alumni and many others, my team and I have been a part of 100's of golf outings in the D.C. Metro Area, Philadelphia, New York, Miami, San Diego.

I offer individual action shots to photographs of the 4 somes that can be delivered on site before the golf round is over is 4x6, 5x7 and even 8x10 prints...in just minutes. We can cover the outing from registration to awards and can even create  recap photo montages set to music in time for the golfers to see at the end of their round.

Some of our favorite courses include Congressional CC, TPC Avenel, Woodmont CC, Bethesda CC, Lakewood CC, Norbeck CC, 1757 Golf Club, Raspberry Falls and the Lansdowne Resort to name a few. 

Event Portraits

I have had the opportunity to travel both domestically and abroad with and for a plethora of clients; it is truly one of the most rewarding parts of my profession and career. 

Thank you to all the meeting planners, clients and friends that have made this all possible.

Testimonials

X

About 20 years ago while taking room shots at a very fancy Special Event, I turned to my client and said "Bill, you are going to love these images!" He smiled, turned to me, and without missing a beat said, "How about I tell you how good your photos are after I see them?"

Several years later I realized the value of his poignant words and feel the best way to show our value is through the words of our clients. Over the next few weeks I will be adding to this one that just came in today.

All of us at Jack Hartzman Photography aim to exceed all your expectations.

 

Me and My Team

Exceeding expectations one couple at a time.
