“I hired Toby to photograph sculpture for a gallery catalogue which included the diverse work of half a dozen different sculptors. Lighting is so important, and finding just the right angle, or angles, is crucial. His professionalism was unmatched, time was efficiently respected the day of the shoot, he was open and encouraging of client input, and the work was superb on completion."

Erik Hawkinson, NJ

 “Toby gives all of his client's complete confidence that the images he shoots will be exactly how they envisioned if only they could be photographers. I hired Toby for the most important and difficult clients and I never had to worry or monitor the process to know that both my clients and the subjects would walk away satisfied and the project would be a success. From portraits to commercial use, from innovative original compositions to breathtaking results, Toby's work far bypasses any other photographers I have used in the past 20 years.”

Edmund O'Reilly, NY

"Toby is an outstanding photographer. When I was an art director at Curran and Connors in NY, I found Toby to be very professional, highly creative and extremely personable; he's just great to work with."
