  • Gary Mester, Master Photographer

    (8 reviews)

    Gary Mester, Master Photographer specializes in making flattering portraits of families, high school seniors, and head shots for professionals such as doctors, lawyers, entertainers and models. Kodak has presented Gary with 2 awards, one for excellence in black and white photography, while the other was a colorful image from Notre Dame, and was exhibited at Disney World’s Epcot Center. In addition, his photography has received recognition from photographic associations in many states including: Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Nevada and Florida. Gary has also been awarded the "Best of Show" award at the Midwest Museum of American Arts. That was the first of 2 works made by Mester, now in the museum's permanent collection. As the commercial photography instructor at an Indiana Vocational School, Mester’s students earned more than $40,000.00 in scholarships and prizes, including 1st place in the National Vocational Skill Olympics for 2 consecutive years. After a dozen years of intense study with master photographers from around the world and eight years of successful international print competitions, Gary was awarded the "Master of Photography" degree from the Professional Photographers of America. THE North Light Studio in South Bend, just North of Roseland, was specially designed and built to provide flattering, natural light in a comfortable indoor environment. The garden studio includes some of the most beautiful acreage in Indiana. Settings feature spring-fed Juday creek with picturesque waterfalls, bridges, ponds and mature trees, including weeping willow, ancient oaks, beech and evergreens, plush all seasons, great for outdoor family portraits! Appointments: I give every client my complete attention; therefore, an appointment is required each time you visit the studio. I am most available in the afternoons, 7 days a week, and select mornings and evenings.

  • Weeping Willow Photography

    (2 reviews)

    (For more information, please contact me through my website. Thanks! ) Weeping Willow Photography is a creative, unique, and professional full-service photography studio. I, Kayla Holdread, the owner/photographer/designer, will help you figure out everything you want in your photos. I'll help you feel comfortable during your sessions and I'll help you through the whole ordering process, even if it's just images on a CD, designing an album for you, or deciding which product would look best up on your walls. What makes me different than most photographers around here? Today, most photographers just photograph, edit, and then burn your images on a CD. They don't do any extra thing. Sometimes, they do not even edit the photos. Sometimes, they do not even know what you want in a photograph. I can just put your images on a CD, but also I like to have a full-service to your experience. I like to discuss what exactly you want in a photograph before the session. During the session, I want you to relax and have fun. After the session, I want to let you all of your options about getting beautiful displays on your walls. I'm not just here to photograph you, I'm also here to help you decorate your house with breathtaking portraits. Think of me also as your photo consultant. My philosophy is that photography is the art of storytelling without words. You don't just take a photo with your eyes, you take it with your experiences, emotions, and heart. There are the obvious things that can make a photograph pop, like composition, lighting, or contrast, but sometimes it is the not-so-obvious things that really draw us in. It is the mood, the tone, and the story, both seen or unseen. I love when a photo tells a story, whether that's a family playing in the woods or a snowflake on a window. That being said, it's my job as a professional photographer is to make every photograph a piece of art that tells a story. When you hire me, you'll get quality over quantity which not many photographers do anymore. I feel that quality is so much more important than quantity, and I'm sure you agree.

  • Danica Corin Photography

    I wish that I had something witty to say about myself, or that I was this awesome writer that could make myself sound so good that you can't help but hire me as your photographer. I don't. I am a girl who loves photography. From an early age I wanted to work for National Geographic as a photographer. That was the ultimate to me! So in college I took my first photography class and HATED it! Luckily I was in school to become a Graphic Designer and went ahead to receive my degree in Design. During college DSLR cameras became popular and cheap, which meant that I would not have to spend any time in a darkroom. Yae! So I bought a camera and began to shoot. Since then my love for photography has continued to grow. I look forward to meeting you in person and doing whatever I can to meet your photography needs, let's talk!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Gary Mester, Master Photographer

(8 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

My portrait clients are always very grateful for the flattering portraits I deliver. So many young photographers today rely on Photoshop tricks to complete their portraiture. In my 20 years of study, I have learned many, many camera room techniques that cannot be implemented in Photoshop.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I discover my knack for photography in high school. Of all the types of photography I have practiced, I find my enhanced ability to make flattering portraits of performing artists, models, professionals, couples and families to be the most rewarding.

Describe your most memorable project.

Years ago, a mother called me and asked how much I would charge to create High School senior portraits of her beautiful daughter at the grand piano in a huge, gorgeous home where they did housekeeping. Suspecting that they did not have a large budget, and wanting the opportunity to create this amazing portrait, I quoted "I will create your location portrait with a complimentary location fee (no charge).
