Everything You Wanted To Know About Us

Hi there friends, we are so glad you stopped by to check us out.

I guess the best thing to do is to tell you a little about us. Gary and I are originally from Kansas City, Mo. We have been Wisconsinites for well over 25 years now. We actually love the seasons here (crazy Gary loves the winters) and have found the people to be great. Gary and I have been married for 43 years. Wow, what an adventure! We are proud to say we have raised 2 boys that are doing well.

My background is in art. Pottery was my first interest, then on to being a stained glass artist. I am pleased to say that I have many stained glass creations mounted in homes and buildings across the United States. However, I have found that people and photography are much more fun.

Gary’s interest in photography is much more ‘developed’ than mine (sorry about the play on words). He has a BS in electronics and gave up a career with Cray Research (the supercomputer people) to pursue photography. He has worked photography in New York, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Las Vegas, Washington DC, and the list goes on and on. His photos are not only classic but edgy, quite unique and magnificent. Gary’s work has been published and award winning.

I am also proud to say that we have had the privilege of working or training with such industry masters as Monte Zucker, Clay Blackmore, Hanson Fong, Sandy Puc‘, Jerry Ghionis, Martin Grahame-Dunn, Salvatore Cincotta, Ralph Romaguera, Blair Phillips, Jordan Chan, Mike Ridinger, Mark Fitzgibbons, Kay Eskridge, and more as the list continues to grow. It’s been an exciting time in our lives.

We pride ourselves on being two free spirits.  Everything we try to do, we make sure we are having fun doing it (including riding our Harley Davidson's every time there is a little free time).  That "life philosophy" spills over into everything that we do, including our photography.  Each and every session is a chance for us to have fun, while providing the highest professional quality images.

Photography is our life for over 36 years. We work as a team and it is our only profession. We do not do it part-time, but full-time and are fully committed to creating beautiful, exquisite photographic artwork. We work, eat, breathe, sleep photography. We like the saying “If you do what you love, you will never have to work again.“ Just trying to say we love photography, creating art, and celebrating life.

Thanks for listening,

Gary & Dee
