Don Jedlovec photographed my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. I didn’t have high expectations because I felt that the way the room was lit and the layout of the room was not ideal for photography. Don positioned himself by sometimes standing on a chair. He has excellent equipment and knows how to get the most out of it. In addition, he has a flair for composing wonderful scenes. I am so grateful to Don because I have event and family photos that I am proud of and will continue to cherish.
We have been working with Don since I've been the head volleyball coach at Ohlone College. Don does great work! He's super professional, but he works in collaboration with us instead of just telling us what to do. As creative as he is he still includes our coaching staff and the athletes in making decisions on what photos look great (or not so great). He's got great ideas, takes wonderful still and action shots, and is very easy to work with. I would totally recommend him for his sports photography! (and all other photography too)
I have worked with Don for more than 10 years and I can't recommend him enough! He has done countless photography workshops for the East Bay Regional Park District on a variety of subjects including: sunsets, sunrises, full moons, landscapes, flowers, birds, insects, and virtual tours, just to name a few. He works well with new photographers, as well as seasoned folks. He is professional, knowledgeable, patient and an amazing photographer!
I have known Don Jedlovec for more than 7 years. I can say without hesitation that his skills, creativity and professionalism can only be described with superlatives. He always goes way beyond what is expected whether it be candids, shooting elements for video productions or portrait work. And his passion for his work is undeniable. His excellent interpersonal and communication skills are front and center. Don always hits his deadlines and is a consummate artist and technician. Beside being an adjunct professor and a media consultant for Santa Clara University, I worked in the news and sports broadcasting businesses for more than 35 years. If I were hiring he would absolutely, without reservation, be my first choice for any and all photography assignments.
Have worked with Don for the past two years. Cannot say enough great things about his work. Don is reliable, efficient, professional and the quality of his photography is outstanding. I have used him for multiple sports and multiple teams and have never had less than five star service. If you are looking for outstanding service and top notch photography you have found your man.
