About the studio

I opened my photography studio in 1989 with my wife, Carol. We support our local economy through many volunteer and philanthropic community activities. We employ exceptional people. The studio is fully licensed and insured. I’m a full-time photographer with regular office hours throughout the week.

The new studio is now open!

We’ve completed construction of a brand new studio. It’s located near the intersection of Birch Road and O’Malley Road. Click here for a tour! I designed it based on many of the elements of our long-time studio off of Abbott Road. It features a beautiful interior studio that is surrounded by an acre of trees, groomed landscaping and exceptional natural lighting. Your dogs and kids will love playing and posing at our new location.
