What my awesome clients are saying:


I enjoy working with John Hayes, because he is someone who truly cares about his clients’ success. John will go beyond the call-of-duty to make sure his clients are getting the most value for their dollar. The services and products he renders for his clients pay dividends in the long-term and are incredibly helpful in the short-term as well. If you’re looking to have video made for your website, or to air on TV, I’d give John Hayes a call today. You’ll wish you would’ve called him a long time ago. Lastly, I use John Hayes for the bulk of my work at FOX TV, because I know he’ll get the job done in a timely manner, and the quality will be top notch.”

John Hayes has donated his time and talents to ensure that the photography and videography for our March of Dimes events is professionally presentable. For our High Heels for High Hopes John works hard to ensure that all twenty ladies are pleased with their headshots for the event; working independently with each one of them. Each year our Signature Chefs Auction mission video is always impressive with John putting a special touch that makes it personal to the families.

Outside of March of Dimes, I hired John to take our family photos. He came to our home, found some great spots to take photos and each one had a piece of “us” and our home in them.

John is a very professional and talented photographer and videographer with the kindest heart!

This year (August 2015) my family and I got the pleasure of working with John Hayes on my son’s senior pictures. John is really great to work with. We chose outdoor settings, he took us to three different locations. The pictures turned out amazing.

Even though he was supposed to be taking only pictures of my son I asked if he’d being will to get a couple family ones as well. He didn’t even hesitate. Now, normally I’d say I don’t take good pictures and my son is shy in front of the camera but you wouldn’t know it by how beautiful all the pictures turned out.

Like most moms I still see my little boy when I look at my son but the first time I looked at the pictures john took of him, I cried. He captured the young man my son has become. I have another son who is a bit younger and I will be calling on John once again when he is ready for his senior pictures as well as any other pictures we might need.

Thanks again John for such a wonderful job!

Not only is John a consummate professional, he is extremely easy to work with, flexible and friendly. Above all, he is the most talented sports action photographer in Lane County.

John is a truly outstanding photographer! His work is unparalleled locally. He has a wonderful eye, a commitment to satisfied customers, and he’s friendly and patient which is so great when shooting with him! His perfectionism and attention to detail shines through his work- each photo is always a work of art. John is always my first recommendation for anyone looking for a photographer.

I work as a Digital Marketing Director for a large automotive corporation. A few years back I was in need of hiring a photographer for a website project. I was introduced to John Hayes through a co-worker and we hit it off immediately! John was able to see and understand my vision, and with his magic, make it awesome (which is no small feat…anyone that is able to decipher what I have pictured in my head, and then even more importantly, make it turn out even better, is a true ROCK STAR as far as I am concerned!).

After working with John on a few projects, our company decided that we would work solely with John, and only with John. He understood our vision, brand standards, produced amazing work, and he has always been extremely flexible. The nature of the car business is that we often have very little lead time to plan out projects. This means that frequently John has had to make himself available to us with the same days’ notice (sometimes we have needed his services within an hour).

Very soon after meeting John, and falling in love with his photography work, we discovered another talent he had that we had not tapped into yet, videography. To be honest this is something as a Digital Marketing Director that I had been wanting to get more involved in for some time, but due to time and manpower I had not been able to dive into it like I had wanted. Thanks to John Hayes we were able to not only dive in, but with his talent and willing to try anything I threw at him (and I throw a ton of crazy stuff at him) we went all in, “Cannon Ball” style! I am happy to report that since we started doing videos with John we have been recognized by several automotive companies nationwide as one of the best at leveraging video in our dealerships.

In addition to working with John on a business level, I have hired him more times than I can count for personal jobs, and referred him to everyone I know. If you walk in my house, or any of my extended family members’ homes you will find Johns work plastered all over the walls. He has done everything for us from family shoots, weddings (AMAZING WORK!!!), numerous birthday parties, to headshots for one of my sons, and last but certainly not least, John has captured my oldest son’s entire high school football career, both still photography and video. Sports photography is where you will see John go from this amazing, talented guy, to this awe inspiring magician. John is able to take his love for sports and combine that with his love, talent, and skills in photography to create beautiful work.

You should also know that John is an extremely humble guy, who often times undervalues how incredible his work truly is. Just know that John is one of those guys that you can’t help but love, so be ready to add John to your list of friends.
