About Us

We are creative photographers, and aspire to do great things.


“I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”
— Booker T. Washington (Up from Slavery: An Autobiography)

ARTIST STATEMENT

Capturing a Moment in Time!

I believe every photo either has or portrays a personality, mood, or an emotion to be discovered. The image should stir some emotion through detail, complexity, simplicity, or possibly desire. Every individual will view my work and react to it differently. Whatever viewing brings about, just be willing to take the time to look.

John O. Dixon

Creative Vision! Style! Bold Imagery! Versatility!

We would like to be your personal photography service. Choosing us for your special event means a lot. Choosing us a second time means even more. It’s our honor to capture those special moments that last a lifetime.

These are words that describe our work. We use dimension and space to capture the true essence of a subject. When we do, we bring to life qualities often ignored by other photographers.

We’ve worked in many settings and have experience in a wide range of photographic situations, photos have appeared in newspapers, magazines, gallery exhibits and websites. Our personality helps bring out the depth of our subjects. Photography isn’t just a job, it’s a passion. Whether it’s a school event, family reunion, pet portrait, or wedding photos, we want to be the photographers you always call on.

Contact us to discuss your next project. Chances are, we’ll not only meet your needs, but exceed your expectations.
