10 Reasons why Charles Ryder Photography IS your No. #1 choice:

  1. Highly trained professional photographers - Most of our staff have been competition ballroom dancers! We know what to look for and will capture poses that make you look good!
  2. Multiple photographers - We don’t go to ANY dancesport event with only ONE photographer. We use multiple photographers to make sure we get maximum coverage. All our photographer’s have been “published” in newspaper, magazine and/or books.
  3. Quality color images & quality printing - Great color photos start with knowledge of color imaging. Never settle for photos with an orange/red color cast. Our photographers start with correct color balance "in camera", then photos are sent to our photo lab for accurate color printing.
  4. Professional, inviting booth presentation – You'll be happy to have us represent your dance event with a professional looking booth. Always clean and organized, with new equipment and great posters.
  5. Friendly, helpful desk staff - Our desk staff are bright, cheery and helpful. You’ll always feel welcome to sit down, view photos and ask for assistance.
  6. User Friendly iPad system – We use high-resolution retina-display iPads. Simple “touch screen” technology makes it easy for customers to view photos.
  7. Photos are sorted by Dancer – Our easy, convenient sorting will allow you to find your dance photos literally within seconds!! Don’t sit for hours looking for photos listed by time!
  8. Speedy printing and shipping – ALL photos ordered at the dance competition are mailed within 7-days. And if you’re really anxious, CD’s with jpeg images are made while you wait AT THE EVENT!
  9. Very reasonable fees - Our pricing for photos are the most reasonable in the dance industry.
  10. Fun photos & social media – (upon request) We will provide fun photos in the warm-up areas, banquet room, people having fun and candid photos of dancers for promotional use and/or social media.
