Family & Portrait Photography
Finding those moments that are cherished for years after they were taken is the most important thing a photographer's job entails. However easy it may seem, the experience of the photographer helps create those moments; snapping the shutter and framing it at that perfect time. Whether you are posing for a shot or creating a candid event or experience, feel comforted that The Pixel Studio will capture what's most important to you.
Wedding & Engagement
The goal for most of us is to find that ONE special someone and live happily ever after. The photographer's job is to capture the moment when the two souls join as one. The camera becomes the storyteller and takes you on a visual journey full of emotion and beauty. Let The Pixel Studio narrate your fairy tale and enjoy your happily ever after.
One might think that a stationary object would be easier to photograph when compared to live, moving objects or persons. The contrary is actually true. Positioning a product at its best angle, in its best light, takes time and patience. There is an art to presenting a product at its most appealing representation. Creating the environment for the product to feed off of is crucial for the photographer. If you are looking to visually maximize your product's profitability, contact The Pixel Studio to assist you.

Your future customer's opinion of your company is often made in the first few seconds of viewing any of your marketing materials, which makes these materials extremely important. A major majority of your potential clients or customers will look at your website or marketing materials before they decide to do business with you. If your website or marketing materials do not immediately scream "professional, capable and experienced company", they'll move on to one that does.
When you first started your company, it is likely you or a friend you know sat down and busted out a logo and business cards that would "do" for a while. By not updating your image with a more professional appearance, you are limiting your potential business growth. You may have the best products in the world or offer customer service that is light years ahead of your competition, but unless you can present an image of a superior company, you may never have the opportunity to prove it.
Professional services for branding and design.
Putting branding and design in the hands of a professional will return a far greater profit than the money you try to save by handling it yourself. Hiring the services of a professional graphic designer are needed much in the same way that you hire an accountant to handle your financial matters or an attorney to handle your legal matters.
There are many details to design that may not be apparent to someone outside of the design industry. Choosing colors, fonts and images can often seem simple but this is because people often choose what appeals to them and not necessarily the mass audience you are trying to obtain. To take it a step further, there are many nuances to the layout of a marketing piece that have a tremendous impact on it's effectiveness. True graphic design is about creating something that will illicit a particular response, whether it be to convey a message or to persuade a potential buyer.
An investment in true, professional design is an investment in your company. Most people have a vast amount of knowledge when it comes to their own industry. Unfortunately, many of them do not understand the impact their company branding makes and how critical it is to their marketing. This is where I come in.
Your branding works even when you've clocked out.
It's your 24 hr personal customer service and sales rep providing your potential customers with the information they need to to take the next step in your company's products or services. In order to do that effectively, your branding needs the touch of a professional designer. I have the experience to meet your needs quickly and affordably, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.

About The Pixel Studio
The Pixel Studio is formed by the idea that all your creative needs can be acquired from a single entity. In today's world, everything is digital. From cameras and computers to medical equipment and household appliances. In the Creative realm, this includes photography as well as design services that include logos, brochures, marketing pieces and websites. Everything viewed digitally has to ultimately deal with pixels. It is from this ideology that The Pixel Studio was so appropriately named.
If it has to do with pixels, The Pixel Studio can help you.
One Place, Multiple Solutions
Of course, you could find a separate photographer, print designer, web designer and graphical Interface (GUI) designer and pay each of them handsomely for their sole expertise. Or, you can contact The Pixel Studio where all those specialty needs can be met under one roof. It might not only save you time, but it could save you a bit of money.
The Pixel Studio can create a solution for all of your creative needs.
About the Owner
Shannon Dannettelle has had the creative bug since elementary school. Starting from Fine Arts, he has adopted his skills alongside the growing digital empire. Unlike a good majority of creative artists, Shannon had also established exceptional work ethic and an understanding of business ideals. Through college, Shannon had been a part of a unique business internship; learning how to run an establishment as an owner. For 3 years he processed payroll, handled inventory, company taxes, training, marketing and philanthropic events just as an owner would.
Since 1999, Shannon has been involved in a few publicly traded companies as well as unique smaller ventures. During this time, his title within each company never actually described everything he contributed. Aside from being a "Senior Designer, Art Director, Creative Director or Manager of Professional Relations," his contributions were felt in almost every other company department. This would include Engineering, Production, IT, Customer Service, Sales, R&D and Accounting.
It is this extra experience in other fields that makes Shannon a standout from other Creative Artists. He not only creates great design and possesses an eye for photography, but he also understands and can empathize the needs and desires of a business from almost every vantage point.
Shannon is able to clearly interpret the clients' vision through his design. His work is consistently creative and well executed. He has never let me down when I needed him in a pinch.
I'm so happy with the outcome of my website designed by Shannon. The process was so easy, he really led me by the hand helping my vision come true. I couldnt be happier and my web customers rave about my site non-stop. They tell me how great it looks and how easy it is to maneuver around. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a creative, professional website. Shannon has really made my internet business take off.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What kind of Work do you do?
I am skilled in Photography, Print Design, Web Design & Development, Video Creation/Editing, Audio Formatting/Editing, Flash and Copy Writing.
I have designed, developed and/or photographed:
- Trade Show Graphics
- Phone Voiceover
- Video Presentations
- PPT Presentations
- Family Portraits
- Company Branding
- Instructional Kits
2. What makes you unique?
I am a Jack of all trades and while I am not a specialist in any one field, I do have the ability to present solid work in many fields. I adapt very quickly and what I do not understand, I research and learn. I know my limits and will never oversell or promise something that I cannot deliver. I come from a background of customer service, not sales. And although I design as a means for income, my desire is for satisfaction, not a quick buck.
3. What kind of clients do you have?
I have worked for many types of clients throughout the years. All of which I have learned a great deal from. I have had clients in the Acting Industry, Music Industry, Retail Industry, Manufacturing Industry, Dental/Medical Industry, Spa Industry and Food Industry.
4. How much do you charge?
There is no single answer to this question. I have an hourly rate and a Per Job rate. I find that most clients would rather just know the total job price. However, there will be times when a project will be drawn out beyond the anticipated timeline and there must be fair compensation for when they occur.
5. What kind of business relationship will we have?
I pride myself in having great relationships with my clients. In doing so, I make sure I am able to communicate through a variety of means. I can meet with you in person or solely over the phone or email. We can discuss and share over video conferencing or instant messaging. I am fully "telecommutable", being loaded with instant, video or audio messaging (iChat, AOL IM and Skype), 24 hr email access, and texting.
I am also a frank, blunt and upfront honest person that will not just tell you something you want to hear, nor am I a constant "yes" man. I believe when you have an open relationship with respect and to-the-point conversations, more can be accomplished in a shorter time frame. I am not afraid to discuss why I disagree on a client's decision nor should they be intimidated on expressing a concern or dislike.
I like to have a "go to" contact for consistency. However, if conversations need more involvement from other departments or management, I am happy to discuss any project details that will help get the job completed.
6. How do I pay you?
On most projects over $500, I ask for a 25% Starting Fee. This allows me funding for other venues and products that will inevitably involve your project. The rest will be due upon project completion.
I accept Cash, Check or Money Order. I will soon be accepting Credit Cards and/or PayPal Payments.
7. How long have you been in business?
I have been designing since 1999. I have always worked for a corporation since College. I have had the pleasure of working for eToys, Biolase, TruDental, Degam Medspa and Balboa Water Group. I have ran my own business since 2004.
8. Where are you located and what are your hours?
I am located in the San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County. With my ability and means to telecommute, I have never had a problem with doing business outside of my locale. In fact, I have clients that reside in New York City, Florida and Georgia, to name a few.
I can converse throughout the day via email and text when possible, but my main hours are:
Shannon brings so much experience, knowledge and creativity to all of his graphic and web designs. He has taken every idea I've had and made it infinitely better! He has an innate ability to understand your core desire, incorporate your vision, and then create designs that magnify all your strengths in a professional, yet simple and user friendly way!He is the best investment you'll ever make in your business. Because of his amazing designs, I get compliments every week on my websites. They all want to know who designed them. Working with Shannon is inspiring and worth every cent!
While Shannon was at BIOLASE we more than doubled in revenue from $18 million in 2001 to approximately $60 million in 2004.
As Senior Graphics Designer of our in-house MARCOM group, Shannon was responsible for the design and production of a very wide range of sales, marketing and corporate projects.
