Biography

PHOTOGRAPHY BY JIM WHITTON AND ASSOCIATES...

In 1989 Teresa and I started Jim's Photo Gems Photography. What began as a part time business developed into a full time profession. We began by photographing sport's team in the summers. This year we will photograph approximately 600 teams along with our many Weddings, High School Seniors, Kidzclub and Family portraits. Teresa's responsibilities have consisted of the organization of the many teams' orders, preparing pictures for delivery, and office manager.

Over the years we have enjoyed helping thousands of families create moments of joy and then capture the memories through the art of creative photography.

EDUCATION...

I received my BS degree from Morehead State University majoring in Business Administration. I continue to study the art of photography through reading, instructional videos, and attending seminars on different areas of photography.

I have studied under world renown photographers such as Monte Zucker (Wedding Photography), Michael Redford (Senior and children Photography), Charles Lewis (High School Seniors & Families...), Ed Pierce (High School Senior, Families, Groups...), just to name a few.

SPECIAL RECOGNITION...

I was selected number one in the state of Indiana for my award-winning photo in the Indiana State Parks contest. We have had photos published in trade magazines such as Indiana and Rainbow Photographic. We were recognized in the Journal and Courier by John Norberg in his article of "Home Based Businesses" and in the "Today's Business Snapshot" Millennium series. We are also a charter member of Kodak's "Promise of Excellence". In October 2005, we were honored to be nominated the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce’s “Small Business of the Month”.
