I recently did a photo shoot with Cedric. Cedric's use and knowledge of lighting and lenses is impressive. I've never been comfortable in front of the camera, but Cedrics professionalism and easy going personality made me feel at ease. I am beyond happy with the portfolio for my fire dance promotional shots that I've received from Cedric. And, his turn around time for editing and sending your shots was quick. I highly recommend Cedric for all of your photography needs.
It was a lot of fun working with such a good photographer. I felt very comfortable in front of his camera although I usually don't like my picture taken.
I am looking forward to hopefully work with him again if I make it back to the States.
It was a pleasure to work with a great photographer like Cedric Sims. We've worked together on a few shoots so far and I've been more than impressed with his work and his professionalism. I look forward to working with him on future shoots.
Cedric is such a talented photographer! He has such great creativity skills to be able to get the perfect photos! Always does a great job making me feel comfortable through the photo session. He is very professional through the photo session and he does a great job providing me with many high quality photos from the photo sessions! I definitely will want to to work with Cedric again in the future!
I have had the pleasure of working with Cedric on shoots for 3 very different businesses. One was a project portfolio shoot for landscape design, another for a handbag and accessory website and most recently for all promotional materials for massage therapy. In every case, Cedric brought his A game, his thoughtfulness, and of course his technical skills! I love that he is 100% focused on getting the desired outcome. Even working through severe allergies to my curious and mischievous cats. Lol. I will gratefully work with him as long as he'll have me! Plus, he's just a cool dude.
Remarkable job! What an amazing job you did on my photos! Your professionalism, wit and expertise is exactly what's needed in a photo shoot. Thank you Cedric for capturing a million words in each and every picture! I look forward to working with you again!

Cedric is a fabulous photographer, down to earth, and wonderful to work with. He has provided photos for Sacred Fire Dance fire entertainment company, and our fire festival the Fire Spectacular. We love the photos he created of our events.
Cedric is an amazing photographer! He is easy going, and really sweet. He wants the best for your photos, and does what he can to achieve the best! The photos he took were JAWdroppingly beautiful! I loved them very much! And he finished all the pictures the very next day which is very impressive! I'm so impressed by his work, and how he's comfortable to shoot with and very professional! Thankyou Cedric for the AMAZING photos! I Loved them!

I had a wonderful experience shooting with Cedric for my pregnancy photos, he offered a comfortable atmosphere to complete a amazing photo shoot in.
One word to describe your work: AMAZING!!!!
You and Al did a great job of selecting the perfect location to do this photoshoot. You both work wonderfully as a team. KUDOS to you both. You did a fantastic job of capturing the beauty of ALL of the models involved in this photoshoot.
Your photos are BEAUTIFUL!
Great lighting, great clarity, nice composition (on ones that apply)! Truly a wonderful work product. Your talent as a photographer really shines through!!! You did a fabulous job. I hope that you will select me, again, to work with you in the future.
Thank you so much Cedric! The photos turned out beautiful and I enjoyed working with you. You are a real professional with a powerful eye and heart for capturing the "right moment"! I hope we get to work together again in the future.

The photo gallery are beautiful and what a great job you have done to create this gallery. Just keep doing what you aere doing!
Hi ... you are so creative .I like your works so much....I am an artist from Udaipur , India.i paint on canvas, paper etc .. I hope we can be good friends ....
what more can i say .. except keep-smiling ..
Thanks for the visit. As far as the smoke photos, they're pretty simple: I used a macro lens to get up close; shot at a small aperture to increase the DOF, and black out the background; and off camera flash to freeze the action; and something that throws off a lot of smoke. Take a lot of pictures since on only sort of know what you are about to get and it all moves quickly, sort of like smoke :-) Good luck.
A very impressive variety of work Cedric. I enjoyed my visit and will visit again.
Greetings Cedric ~
I just wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest and Healthiest of New Years!

These sights are nice but I do not see Louisiana anywhere. LOL

I love your night photos. Your "night "sky" is very nice.
Cedric, came across these photos in a search. Beautiful stuff.
I have a question about your San Fran skyline shot from Yerba Buena island:
The last time I was there (it's not easy to navigate that island!) I managed to find a spot almost directly over the bridge. But the view from your angle, more of the classic shot, where the bridge is angled a little more across the skyline is what I'm trying to get when I come to teh city in August.
Is there any advice you could pass on to me on finding that spot? My email is DeHBeaver0@aol.com and my website is
I really like your sunset and night shorts. Keep on shooting.
Hi Cedric, This is Rene'in Washington, Mike's wife. Thought I would google you and found your website. I will save this as on my favorites and come back often. It was great seeing your pictures.
Your gallery trully inspired me...

Great Galleries and Photos...
Wow..what a beautiful gallery. Stunning work. Thanks for commenting on my windmills.
Hi Cedric, I have been enjoying your work, I made you a favorite and will be back many times to see what you have been up to. I noticed we also have the same camera. Great camera isn't it? Although, I do plan on upgrading to the 30D hopefully by Christmas. I will keep my Rebel as a backup. Thanks also for your comment on my self portrait. I seldom shoot myself, but I am attempting to learn studio lighting now. Your portraits are great, I left you comments on several pictures. Happy Shooting Cedric. :-)

Hmmm... I keep looking for the one of me on my bike with no helmet ... you took it is my favorite picture, maybe I will send it to you !

Hi Cedric, Thanks for your message. I love California though living in London it's not a weekender for me (though I do manage NYC in a long weekend! haha). I've looked through your galleries and love your photos (was surprised to see the one of two UK phone boxes now living in CA!) Best wishes. Gail
Hey Cedric, you have a lot of great shots of California. Can't say I've explored it much, and I've lived here all my life. :) I think I have some motivation to get out there and start seeing more now. Vinh
Firstly, thank you for touring through my galleries and leaving such a nice comment. And secondly, thank you for reminding me how beautiful California is. I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting her through your photos....so many images represent those special places I had visited myself over the last few years. My traveling days are done for now, but you've kept the wonder of Big Sur, Yosemite, and Shasta as fresh as when I saw them the first time.
Some great galleries you have. we have been to many of the same places. You must live in Northern California.
I really like your pictures. Wow. Thanks for sending me the link. I especially liked the misc. catagory, with it's artistic license. I'll cruise by and by to check updates. Very nice work, Ced.
Hello and you can thank your wife for sharing your website - we work together. I especially like the SF bridge photos - as I grew up in the city. How the heck did I end up in Sac? Hmmmmm. Hope to meet you soon. Suzie
Great views of downtown Sacramento. They really catch the eye, each one is like a beautiful postcard. Hope you plan on taking some of our great American River and Folsom Lake....
Thanks for sharing!
Excellent pictures, dang.
I'm looking for some photos of the Sacramento area to post on my website. I'm curious if I could use one of your photos and what the cost would be.
I enjoyed my visit to your galleries. Many very nice shots. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for all the nice comments that you left me on my pictures. I'm very flattered because you are much more of an accomplished photographer than I am! I have enjoyed all of your galleries....you do some excellent work :)
Your Pictures would look alot better if you had the one of me riding my bike !
No I am just kidding ...But honestly you should take some of some bikes!! the Frog Jumps are coming up this weekend!! there will be thousands of bikes, including yours truly.
Love your Sister in Law Cindy
