During the past several months, we've had the pleasure of working directly with Janet Adams for photography needs to support the launch of the largest comprehensive campaign in Otterbein University's history.
We were looking for compelling, authentic portrait photography to help convey the spirit of those leaders, donors and alumni who are shaping Otterbein's story. Janet has been a fantastic partner in this endeavor.
While her work speaks to her talents, it's our pleasure to speak to her ethic and personal conduct. Janet manages to balance the warmth and playful nature of a creative-type with the down-to-business, task-oriented goals of a professional.
She is well-versed in the demands and tight schedules of executives. Janet is able to quickly establish good rapport with her subjects while never losing sight of the schedule. She'll do what it takes to get the shot, too. I've trekked along with her through a creek and a corporate boardroom--and she found a way to make it work and get us the shots we wanted.
We also appreciate Janet's responsiveness and willingness to listen, take direction and offer suggestions. In the field and in planning, she conducts herself like an extension of the team. I value her mindfulness to our vision and how she's helped deliver that in her work. It's been a pleasure to partner with her and we look forward to the next project!

Janet has been our corporate photographer for the last several months. She has photographed head shots, executive portraits, candids of our working environment for our website, and several company parties. She has a great eye for the type of modern shots we need being a high-tech startup company. Meanwhile she has the demeanor to make people feel comfortable so she can capture natural expressions, especially for those who fear the camera. As a vendor, Janet has been nothing but professional – always on-time, very organized and able to do her work without disrupting the work environment or event in which she is covering. Finally, her editing skills provide just the right polish needed to maintain our standard of professionalism.

I have had the pleasure of working with Janet on photo assignments for Columbus Business First and recently in a freelance capacity. She has taken my portrait multiple times. I always look professional, comfortable and special as the compliments roll in from the portraits. Recently we worked together on a product photography project and Janet's work excelled again. She is dependable, professional, creative and fun to work with. Janet is a great photographer and I recommend her.

I worked with Janet for several years and always found her work to be top notch. She’s a master of the technical side of photography, and combines that with an eye for a good image. She excels at putting people at ease and that has helped her consistently produce quality portraits that bring out her subjects’ personalities. Over the past couple years, she also added video capabilities to her repertoire, producing shorts for the web on a variety of topics. Bottom line, when I have an assignment, I never hesitate to turn to her for the freelance gig.
