We not only see imagery as it is, but also how it could be.
For us, this is our passion, individuality, our sensitivity, and doing the very best with our craft.
"Marleen and Bill on computer"
We are all Mac based, however we will allow PC's in our studio on occasion =;-)
We both innately have that photographic artist's eye. However to utilize our talent for the best results, much work is required. We strongly believe in education, and continually attend workshops, and classes to learn from the best. We are active members of our state, regional, and international photographers, and videographers associations.
Whenever we purchase a new piece of equipment, we practice, practice, practice. This maybe in-spite of our neighbors wondering why we are photographing a duck, and a chicken in our driveway.
We are unique in that we have mastered, and offer several art forms for one stop shopping!
Photography-Much thought is given before we begin your project by discussing what we can do that is special and different for you. Every project is a new experience, and we love a challenge. Some of our best work has come about because we are approaching each new project with a fresh eye.
Photoshop-We are experts in Photoshop which has taken us many years. Non the less, we continually update our knowledge because using it is an ever-evolving art form.
Pieces of both photos were used to create the finished photo below in addition to many other objects.
Graphic Design-If you need business cards, postcards, or brochures for your business, or a just a card for a special occasion. We will handle your photography needs for each piece, create the design layout, and have it printed.
We will discuss in detail what you have in mind. Once we have the design near completion, we will invite you to our studio so that we may fine tune the design until you approve it as a "go". Example:We photographed a play, and designed this compilation for the school.
After photographing an artist's paintings, this is a business card we did for her. The photographs of the horse and the ballplayer were also used when we created her website. It's important to have the same look on the web as her print advertising. "Branding," that is what it's all about.

Website Creation-We not only create websites, but we can also create the images and video for them.
Video Production and Editing- We have been award winning Videographers and Editors for 20 years.
A lot of our clients are now asking us to film and edit a web movie for their website.
You might consider a video which will show how you create your own product, or the way it can be used, or it could simply be about you, and why you're unique.

Corporate Photography and Video-
Because we can offer the best of both worlds, this will greatly simplify your corporate needs.
We recently finished a medical video and photography combination project. Bill was filming while I was photographing. The company used the photos for their international trade show booth, and brochure advertising. They also included some those images in the video that Bill created.
The company sent us these photos of their trade show booth which had the photographs embedded in the booth walls. They told us the Video and Images were the best in the show, and that they received many compliments.

Meanwhile the 4 plasma screens in the booth played the looping video.
Two talented people you say, yes, we like to think so. "Apple Computer" thought so too, and featured us on their site. We have never received so many emails and calls in a such a short period of time, wow! What struck us as so unusual was how many people asked how they could be like us. Link to Apple Computer's Feature Story.
By now you are wondering how Bill, and I can we work together so harmoniously and stay married?
We won't go into the nitty gritty here, but MOST days we truly do love working together.
We constantly bounce ideas off each other, and dream up new creative ideas to include in our projects.
That's the fun part, it keeps our passion and our love of what we do always exciting. We like living on the cutting edge, it's a great view from here.
Pricing-We've formed so many friendships working with our clients. Big, or small projects, we take great pride in doing our very best with each and every one, and because of this offer a money back guarantee. We offer what we feel is fair, and very competitive pricing. Each project is different and unique from all others, thus the cost will be representative of what the project entails. This is how we make our living, we devote our full time to your needs, and when you call, we answer the phone.
We would enjoy discussing ideas for your project. Whatever you have in mind, we'll put it in the spin cycle, and see what comes up.
We look forward to hearing from you, and trust us when we say, "you will enjoy the experience."
Warmest regards, Marleen and Bill

You're probably wondering if we always wear red antlers? Hummm, well no, but our "Kooky Kards " have become a yearly tradition that our family and friends love to receive from us at Christmas. Note: the cats were not harmed in the making of these photographs. Before
