After searching for a photographer in around Orange county, I came upon Maureen Armstrong photography
After a few calls and discussing terms and location, she convinced us to set up an outdoors shoot, which could be actually nice if the photographer knows how to light his or her subjects. But it seemed that she only shoots on location , because she has no studio, something we found out much later. Nevertheless, we found ourselves in a ran down alley next to some garbage and trash bins very similar to this
image but worst
Regardless of our reservations we finished the agonizing photo shoot, since we had already paid her a hefty deposit.
She was very unfriendly through out the entire shoot. She took 100's of shots without even checking the light with a proper light meter or even changing he camera's setting as the light was changing rapidly that should have been enough warning that we are dealing with a total amateur. giving her the benefit of the doubt we finished the agonizing photo shoot
After weeks of not returning our calls, she finally sent us some overly exposed and disgusting photos with the worst possible lighting and quality which were not suitable for anything but those garbage cans she loves to shoot next to
everything about them were bad, the lighting , the harsh shadows, the colors and most importantly the over all quality of the images were worst than anything I have ever seen when we contacted her and expressed our concerns, she became very rude and abusive on the phone and refused to give us any refund or any sort of compensation.
She completely ripped us off and left the worst taste in our mouth forever. I strongly suggest to anyone planning to shoot with this fake, phony scam artist photographer Maureen Armstrong
, please think twice look at her portfolio and compare and don't trust her portfolio, what you get is allot worst She is far from a pro, more likely a mediocre amateur passing herself as a professional photographer so Buyers be aware!
