My name is Donald Hood. I developed an interest in photography at about 5 years old. Career goals varied as I grew, but I always came full circle back to photography. During the 80's I traveled the country working as an electrician on construction jobs, saving money to move home and open a studio. I landed in Southern California, where I absorbed all the new techniques that were evolving on the west coast, and brought that knowledge back to North Alabama, opening Status Image. At the beginning, I shot anything that would pay, but quickly the portrait end exploded and for about 15 years that was the primary revenue source for the company.
Eventually Commercial jobs began to take off, primarily product photography. Now that's the main line of work at the studio. However, I still have a love for quality portraiture, thus we still do portrait sessions, primarily families and high school seniors.
Attention to detail, top quality work, and quick turnaround has given the studio a solid base of clients, even in this small southern town where commercial jobs are few. Most of the work is for out of town clients who appreciate the personal attention and care given their products. Some jobs are shipped in by UPS, others are traveled to and worked on site. Whichever you prefer, Status Image can handle your needs. We service small e-commerce businesses owned and operated by a single person, all the way to mega corporations where the line of command goes endlessly upward. Whatever your need, we will give you top quality, speedy service, attention to detail, all at a small town affordable price.
