I'm Rob Krueger, owner, and lead photographer. Admittedly, I'm obsessed with photography. I have two degrees, an associate's and a bachelor's degree, both in photography, I taught as a professor of photography at the College of DuPage (4 years), I've been a professional photographer for 10 years, and I run a photography podcast called Take & Talk Pics. With over 250 episodes and teaching on the collegiate level, I love the education side of photography. Join me for one of my weekend workshops!
While I have spent the majority of my career photographing weddings, I have been excited about the more recent creative portraits and product photography clients that have trusted me in making meaningful imagery.
Personally, I love to swim and go camping. I'm the youngest of 5 children, I have broken 3 bones in my life, and in October 2016 I tore ligaments in my wrist during an engagement session. Needless to say, I do whatever necessary for the perfect picture. Although, I now try to avoid situations that would risk such results. I love Mexican food and a big margarita anytime! A wine tasting is one of my favorite things to do, even though I don't know much about it. I have an awesome puppy, Piper Doe, a German Shepherd/Australian Kelpie mix.
Keeping things simple... I am a:
Wedding Photographer, Portrait Photographer, and Product Photographer.
I would love to get to know you and see how I can help in making creative imagery for your next project.
