I found Leo/FishBowl Photography on Yelp. The reviews were great and it sounded like he was very thorough and detailed in his photography.
When I commissioned Leo to take site photos of a commercial/retail building and the surrounding center/tenants, he asked me several pointed questions about what kind of images I needed, what they would be used for, how many photos I needed, my timing, my budget, etc. He obviously cared enough to get the exact shots I needed for my marketing of the site, and when I got his photos, I was elated. He provided me more than enough shots of the property and surrounding retailers, from basic cover-ready shots, to cool architectural/angled views that really glossed up the center. His lighting was fantastic (day and cool sunset shots included) and we were able to promote our property with confidence that we were showing it off at its best.
Leo's professionalism and attention to detail were very impressive. I have every intention of using FishBowl Photography for any future photo shoots and I highly recommend anyone looking for excellent property shots do the same. Thanks Leo!!
I knew Leonardo through Merced Business Exchange. He did a great job in a very timely manner for El Portal Dental Group's new office virtual tour. Since I am not very computer savvy, he also helped me with some of the social media features. He really knows what he is talking about. He provided an abundant service for us. Give him a chance and you won't regret.
I found Fishbowl on a list of Google Trusted photographers I came across while trying to figure out how to add an "office tour" for my dental practice.
He replied immediately online and it was easy to figure out a time that was mutually beneficial to get the photo shoot done.
About 2 business days later things were live with Google and I couldn't be happier.
I was already live with my office tour by the time any of the other companies I sent emails to responded.”
Leo Alvarez is a magician! He came in to our office for a short visit to get an understanding of our business and clientele and he "got it" immediately. He came back a few days later to do the photo shoot. We were very busy that morning, but he was completely inconspicuous and non-invasive. He was done in under an hour and a few days later our photo montage was up on Google Maps, just like magic! The photographs are beautiful and really provide a wonderful impression of our office. See for yourself, just google us at Peggy Biddison State Farm Insurance and see for yourself. Peggy Biddison, Agent/Owner
As an active member of several Chambers, including San Ramon and Danville, I have come to appreciate the opportunity we get to meet business colleagues who are eager to develop their business. Most of all, I have come to value the one-on-one meetings I have shared with many colleagues.
A standout among them is Leonardo Anton Alvarez, a young 28-year Google Certified Trusted Photographer, specializing in small and medium businesses interested in enhancing their web presence with a more intimate and more powerful photographic message.
Leo's Fishbowl Photography is generous with his time and the quality of his message. Using the latest technology, Leo is able to cut through the complexity of an Internet presence and maximize value for his clients.
Leo has already made a name for himself among Chamber Members who have asked him to come back and enlighten them further.
Small businesses will stand to gain using the services of this highly motivated, knowledgeable and effective Internet Marketing Expert
Leo did a virtual tour of our office. He's very professional and does a great job highlighting the things you want your client to see. The images are seamless so our clients get the experience of what it feels like to walk through our office. He even managed to capture our Agency Owner's dog in the virtual tour when she requested it lol.”
I've had a handful of photo shoots done by Leo. He is a superior photographer, and makes my family and I look spectacularly in the prints we get. The things we appreciate most are his calming but humorous manner, impeccable work ethic, and willingness to accommodate even the most difficult members of my family.
No matter how many photographers offer to take our portraits or business photography "for free," we will always go to FishBowl for our photography and storytelling needs.”
