Hello, and welcome to mantispid Photography!

I'm Adam Shahid, founder of the company. mantispid Photography, a division of mantispid, LLC, was formed at the beginning of 2008, and is the culmination of years of photography as a hobby. I started out with an Olympus C-2500L digital camera, and have come quite a way since then. I'm currently using a Canon EOS 5D MkII as my primary camera.

I offer my services to whomever wishes to hire me. Currently I only charge $75 for a one-hour shoot, and that includes processing of 5 shots from the set (chosen by the customer). Additional processed shots are only $7.50 each.

If you have any questions or would like to set up a shoot, please email me at

Please feel free and look around the site! I hope you enjoy your stay.
