Pricing for photography around Kansas City can be crazy & confusing. We’re seeing more ‘budget’ photographers than ever & trust us “cheap” is not how you want your photographs to look. Custom photography is worth the investment because life's most important moments shouldn't be left to chance.
Ever since I was a little boy, photography has been a passion of mine. At five years old, I remember setting up table tops and photographing toy cars with my parents Kodak 110 camera. Throughout high school and into college, photography continued as a hobby.
After playing college football and blowing my knee twice, I hung up my cleats to pursue a degree in photography. I transferred to the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Photography with a minor in Color Technology.
The knowledge and experience from this esteemed program created a variety of opportunities that included work with entertainers, celebrities, professional athletes, and Prime Ministers, and has taken me all over the world from Europe to Alaska. I have worked on the ocean for weeks at a time, stayed on oil platforms, flown in helicopters, hiked for days, and stayed in run-down shacks just to get the shot. I truly enjoy this commercial work and welcome invitations for yours.
Going the extra mile to ensure a comfortable experience and desired result is important to me and is the only way I do business.Please feel free to call or email me now with your ideas or questions.
Creating memories for you,
Joyce Layman Blackburn: Director of Everything Else
