  • “I first stumbled upon Jeff’s work through Instagram and was blown away. His talent for visual storytelling and world-wide adventures are marvelous. The work he produced for us is of that same caliber, the aerials particularly stunning. His attention to detail and collaboration on the day of the shoot were refreshing and his enthusiasm was contagious. The entire experience of working with Jeff was a pleasure and I look forward to doing it again.”
  • "When you hire a photographer, you’re actually looking for two things. One is the craft and skill and artistry they bring to the project with the shots themselves, the other is how they treat the shoot and you. It is rare when you find a professional who delivers on both – I found one in Jeff Mauritzen. I hired Jeff to do a shoot that would populate a travel feature of sorts for a magazine. The subject was the C & O Canal and its lock houses. Jeff nailed it. The images were breathtaking and so was his effort. I was getting calls and messages at the crack of dawn and throughout the day as he kept coming up with new pics and ideas not on the shot list – each of them brought something else to the table, fantastic. In short, Jeff did a great job with the work and with me (the client) – he’ll do the same for you.”

  • "Jeff has a great eye for landscapes, travel and nature. He's just back from Kenya & the Galapagos Islands, where I sent him on assignment to photograph and film animals for our upcoming Animal Encyclopedia. He did a knock-out job! I was absolutely delighted with the quality of his work and his professionalism. He was thorough, detail-oriented and a pleasure to work with."

  • "Whenever I have an impossible photoshoot that I need to make happen, I rely on Jeff Mauritzen of inPhotograph, one hundred percent of the time. I’ve hired Jeff for a wide array of jobs during my time in the Washington, D.C. area as a graphic manager at an architecture firm, and now as Creative Director at an advertising agency. In our time working together he has shot scenery for large-print environmental graphics; at locations needing high-level clearance; shots on the water from a moving boat; portrait photography of CEOs; hour-long-shoots in freezing-cold temperatures—the common denominator in all of these jobs was Jeff’s professional ability to rise to the challenge and produce absolutely stunning photography. He is amazing with our clients, timely with his turnaround workflow, and always produces the highest-level quality of work."

  • "I hired Jeff nearly 10 years ago to handle ongoing portrait photography for my company, and it was one of the better decisions I've made since joining the organization. He was flexible, easy to work with, and the final product was always top notch. I can't say enough positive things about Jeff, his attitude and his talent - and I would highly recommend him for any photography job requiring a consummate professional."
