Winter Swell, a storm photo.

Joe captured the fury of the winter storm which blew through Petoskey two weeks ago. This photo which was shot from a lower angle captures the fury in the waves as the westerly wind wound them up for their powerful impact into the Petoskey breakwall. This photo and its compliment “Duck Storm” are available in the gallery on paper prints and gallery wrapped canvas.


Studio 2!

Join us in celebrating the opening of Studio 2, a new portrait location. Studio 2 is located directly across the street from The Gallery, upstairs of the Park Side Deli. This location will offer better accommodations for in studio portrait and classroom opportunities. We still offer our wonderful on location portrait services. Come in out of the cold for one of our wonderful Mini Portrait sessions in this new space!



10am – 6pm

We will close at 4pm on December 31st. We will be closed New Year’s day. Starting the second week of January, we will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Appointments will still be available on these days.


Bringing back a favorite.

Your love of this ornament has sparked its return this winter season. Last year we could not keep enough of our Downtown Petoskey Snowflake ornaments in the gallery. In addition for this year we are adding many more local ornaments to the inventory.

Tips and tricks

“Winter photography does not need to be a chilling experience. When the temperature drops and the snow flies there are ways to protect yourself and your equipment. Remember that condensation will happen to cold items which are brought into a warmer and moister environment, such as your camera and lenses when you take them inside after a few hours in the cold. This condensation can damage your gear, therefore it is best to allow it to warm up in the safety of its camera bag. Also be sure to keep yourself from harm, I find that glove inserts permit the operation of the cameras function while also preventing exposure to the cold and wind. Frostbite and associated cold injuries can occur quickly when the wind blows, so be sure to keep covered. When things are icy, employ the use of traction assistance products such as yak tracks. And above all else, remember to be safe when working around or on top of water, wear a life jacket.”

Canvas is in.

Over the past few months we have been developing a process to print and gallery wrap canvases. We now have this process ready for the public. Our canvases are 100% a Petoskey made product!
