Bring your best work to light!

We create high quality, dynamic photography of your work for jury, promotion or publication. Robert can provide you with top quality digital images ready for printing, publication, booth displays, web sites and ZAPP® or JAS online juries using the latest digital equipment. Investing in professional images will help you stand out to jurors and increase your visibility at highly competitive shows.

We offer personal attention and work hard to help with the details through every step of the process. Trained as an architect, and an accomplished artist himself, Robert applies the same meticulous, thoughtful attention to detail to your work as his own.

Robert has been a product photographer since 1990. He has been the on-site craft photographer for Southern Highlands Craft Guild every July and October since 2003, for Piedmont Craftsmen each November since 2006, for Foothills Craft Guild since 2010, and the NIADA international doll conference of 2009.


Digital Photography

Each image is captured in highest quality RAW format with the latest professional cameras, lenses, lighting and capture techniques, then individually optimized for best color, lighting balance and sharpness.

Design and Printing

We also offer web site design and graphic design for printing, post cards, business cards, catalogs, brochures.

Our Process

  1. Ship your work or come by our studio. We can even come to you!

  2. We enjoy helping working artists! We love working directly with artists and welcome your input in the studio.

  3. Depending on the piece, I will often shoot several angles, including a close up, and can put all the shots from your session on a personal web page for you to choose from.

  4. After selection, your final images can be delivered by internet download, email or disc.

  5. Turnaround time is usually within 5 working days.

  6. Upon payment the artist will have unlimited rights for use of images.


We create affordable website designs for artists and other small businesses. Our philosophy is great looking websites don’t have to cost a fortune.
