Welcome to my world

I've been blessed to be called a television news Emmy award winning videographer who has worked in the tv news industry his entire career. My creative eye allows me the oppourtunity to capture mesmerizing images documenting the love, laughter, and life of all that passes in front of my lens. I just wanna share my images and my thoughts with the rest of the world....

Chicago’s Next Top Model

Tho other day, Lalah’s parents brought her to our studio to capture some images for a comp card. She’s fun, she’s animated, and smart as well. Please enjoy a few images from our day. And please call the number to hire her if you ever need a young talented model/actress in the Chicagoland Area.

Szjerdene in Concert with Bonobo

All I can say is WOW!!!!

The other night, I had the opportunity to attend probably the BEST concert I’ve ever attended. And it was all by chance. I was assisting Janeen’s Art in transporting a painting to the lovely and talented UK songstress SZJERDENE (and take a couple of photos of course). Then out of the blue, asked if we wanted to stay for the show at the HOUSE OF BLUES here in Chicago. She was performing alongside the musical genius of Bonobo as they tour the world.

Enjoy a few images from the concert.

Over the past few months, I have been brainstorming ideas as to how to help parents, soon to be parents, families, actors and models find ways to be able to afford to get professional portraits done at a price that would be affordable for those that may be struggling right now due to a troubled economy and loss of jobs.

How it works:

• I have set up a $25 monthly plan or $300 annual plan option through Paypal. ( for up to 3 sessions per year)
• You choose which payment plan works best for your family.
•This payment is deducted from your Paypal account or bank account automatically.
• You may start scheduling a Loyalty Basic Portrait Session after your payment total has reached at least $75 (up to 3 sessions per year)- however if you schedule your session before your total payments have reached the final cost of a Loyalty Basic Portrait Session cost – you will not receive your images until the session has been completely paid for.
• Payments made with the Monthly Recurring Payment Plan are good toward Portrait sessions, as well as Senior Portraits, Newborn and Maternity Sessions, Engagement Sessions, and Headshot photography.
• If you choose to cancel your subscription/automatic payments – you will be given credit for the amount you have paid, toward a Basic Portrait Session (Prices for Sessions may be found on our website)
• No refunds will be given – a Credit Certificate will be issued to you.
• Photography in the Chicagoland Area Only (if you’re close, contact us and we’ll let you know if you qualify). Scheduled time will be based upon photographer’s availability.
• You may purchase a session for someone else as a gift – please Email Dartise for more information or to schedule your first session.
• Each session will include up to 1 hour with photography, 1 look (outfit) at 1 location. 3 edited images are included with each session. Additional images will be available for purchase.
