About Us

The Studio was established in 1999.  With a background in Commercial photography Chris and Jean decided to focus their cameras more on people. The technical and creative work history is reflected in their portraiture.  The style is deeply rooted in getting the perfect exposure, and using proven lighting techniques and  composition to create flattering portraiture that tells a story and illustrates their subjects life.  Its important to make each of our subjects look their best.   We concentrate on using our years of retouching experience to make each image that leaves our studio the best it can be.
