My name is Rod Arroyo and I am the owner / photographer at City Photos and Books, Inc.
City Photos and Books, Inc. is our city and landscape photography service. I have 8 books of photography available on Amazon.com. I also sell my city images at art shows, through the web, and by personal commission.
If you are interested in portraits, please visit Portraits by Rod,our portrait photography service. My goal is to capture special moments in time: a special day, an event, a milestone – or it could just be a great to have beautiful images made of you or your family. Capturing people being themselves is what my work is all about. Taking the time to connect with people is a great investment in the final images…images you will be proud of.
I hope to have the opportunity to begin a dialog with you today through an email (rod[at]cityphotosandbooks.com), phone call (248-403-9500) or meeting.
“Rod is the most amazing photographer ever – he has photographed my children on numerous occasions and always manages to bring out the best in them (which with three boys can be a bit of a challenge at times!) He always makes the boys feel comfortable and captures the very essence of them. I also have several of Rod s city prints in my office because the quality of his work is absolutely incredible. My clients always comment on the pictures when they come in. I have recommended Rod to several other people and they all have had the same positive experience that I have had. Simply put, if you want someone to capture the true personalities of your children and you want the best, hire Rod.”
“I honestly could not think that my senior pictures could have come out any better than they did. Rod was very about “me” when it came to my session; he worked around my schedule and what I wanted in my pictures. I don’t think you can get any better than that. I had fun during my session and was so relaxed, I was able to show the real me in my pictures and Rod captured it all.”
“We had a wonderful experience working with City Photos and Books for my daughter’s senior pictures. Rod had great ideas for locations and shots and really captured my daughters beauty and character. It was easy and fun, and now we have awesome photos that we’ll treasure.”
“Rod was terrific to work with. He is professional, relaxed and had many suggestions to help my daughter and I enjoy the photography process. We walked around town, found interesting places to photograph her and poses which reflected her personality and interests during her senior photo shoot. The pictures look great. His suggestions about choices of paper and poses chosen proved accurate when we received the final pictures. I would definitely choose him again for another event!”
“I would recommend Rod for all your photography needs!”
