I started A and D Studio (www.aanddstudio.com) in 1999 and moved the studio to it's present location in Mentor, Ohio in 2012. I offer a wide variety of photographic services to the public and commercial markets. I offer the public market senior photos, events, engagement photos, family photos, fitness and modeling portfolios. My commercial clients utilize my portrait, event, advertising and product photography.
I have been a photographer since 1983 and took my original courses in photography from a Vice President of Kodak. I focused on outdoor and family photography for my early years and traveled the USA extensively while shooting film photography. I was an early adopter of digital technology including cameras and software. Over the years I have created a unique style that combines classic photography techniques with modern elements. I also specialize in black and white photography to create bold and memorable images.
My philosophy of the studio is simple. Take a great picture and use modern tools to make any minor corrections necessary to complete an image. You won't find images with copious amounts of editing and changes made to the original photo. I can, however, provide a variety of modern editing techniques to match your specific needs. I work with a group of talented graphic artists to produce the images that my customers desire.
