To Whom It May Concern:
I have always been extremely satisfied with William Lulow’s work. The quality – and quantity – of Bill’s images makes my job easier when selecting the best shot for publication. Great working relationship! My number one choice in the New York area for on-location shoots. I will definitely continue to use Bill in the future.”

To Whom It May Concern:
“It’s a pleasure to conduct business with a trustworthy professional like William Lulow. He produces a quality product with exceptional professionalism. Always accomodating and responsive.”
Lisa Marie Pompei, Garden State Engineering & Planning, New Jersey:
I was overdue for a professional photo, and I am so glad I called William Lulow. I wanted a photographer who could give me something different from the usual smiling, made up headshot. I wanted to show some personality. I came home with several shots that really shine, and nearly ten more that I’d be proud to send out. I don’t think of myself as very photogenic–William’s suggestions as to how to position myself and direct my gaze really made a difference. Our session was also enjoyable! I will recommend him to any friend who needs photographs, professional or other.

I worked with Bill last year when I needed new corporate headshots, and the results far exceeded my expectations. Corporate headshots are often stiff and artificial-looking, but Bill’s photos were just the opposite. Bill’s ability to combine technical expertise with artistic creativity resulted in headshots that were dynamic, compelling and thoroughly professional. I was delighted with the results, and chose one of Bill’s photos for my LinkedIn profile. It was a pleasure working with Bill, and I have already recommended him to several colleagues.

To: William Lulow,
Hi Mr. Lulow. You did an amazing job with the color in each piece. Thank you so much! I will certainly refer you to anyone who is looking for someone to photograph their art.

I was at the Chappaqua Library today and caught your amazing photos. Many of the photos were the artists I listened to in college in the 70s – you captured them so beautifully, especially Judy Collins…I also happened to see Maria Muldaur (when Midnight at the Oasis was big!) at a small night club in London when I was studying abroad for a semester.
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed them!

Comment from Richard Rapp, Consultant. (Shoot in September, 2015):
First of all, many thanks for giving us so many excellent shots from which to choose. We had a very hard time.
Comment from Ita Dowler (client, 2015):
Mr. Lulow took many, many pictures in order to get the best possible few that we could use. He retouched the pictures and I was very pleased. I used the pictures on my website and I don’t know if it was a coincidence but my business has picked up. I really appreciated his hard work and the finished product. Also, I have gotten a lot of compliments on those pictures.
On Teaching and Workshops:

I really enjoyed the class very much. The class motivated me to consider lighting more when I take photographs. I have come out of the class with the motivation to learn more. I plan to tackle how to use my flash off-camera! The focus on lighting made this class very interesting and useful. Thanks for coming up to Mamaroneck to teach it!!

Thank you for helping me –
I have been fortunate to have studied photography with Bill Lulow for the past two years. His patience, support and professionalism have been instrumental to my growth as a photographer. With him, I learned how to use manual mode, lighting, composition, how to set up a portrait and many other tricks of the”Trade”. And as I struggled to obtain the results I wanted, Bill was always generous with his information, support and time. He is a terrific teacher and, most importantly, helps make learning photography a joy.

“After having taken more than a few photography classes at the New School, please note that I was particularly pleased by both the content and presentation of Mr. William Lulow’s class which I completed a short time ago.”

To: William Lulow
“I found it amazing that I’ve been taking portraits for so many years and so many tens of thousands of photos and never understood some of the basic concepts behind it all. But you were right: I have not looked at any photograph (including my own) in the same way since I took the course. I must have taken 50 headshots in the last year and each one had the lighting just a little bit different from the other because I never knew exactly what I was doing. Now I can’t wait for the next headshot victim so I can practice what now seems so simple to me.”
“Thank you for the course, and next time I find myself in the Photo District I’ll give you a call.”
