Jim Whitmer Photography

Jim and Mary Whitmer are a husband/wife photo team and have worked extensively in the editorial and advertising markets since the 1970's. They have produced hundreds of cover illustrations for brochures, books and magazines over the past 30 years. One of their specialties is photographing people in real-life situations and their images often convey a spiritual quality and vitality.

Many of their images have been taken in third world countries during photojournalistic coverage for relief agencies. Their scenic photos are a result of frequent travel opportunities world wide.

As well as providing a large selection of imagery from stock, they also handle a wide range of special assignments in their studio or on location. Over the years they have enjoyed photographing many notables, including four US Presidents, Billy Graham, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Mel Gibson, Johnny Cash, Barbara Mandrell, Tony Orlando, Jesse Jackson, Walter Payton, Phil Donahue, James Denton, Gail O'Grady and many Christian artists, musicians and speakers. For years they worked regularly for Woman's World Magazine using Chicago models for their assignments.

Jim and Mary's favorite images in recent years have been photographed in Italy and France, where they have enjoyed the unique lighting and subject matter for their new digital art collections.

Their new interests are in the fine art images they have digitally reproduced.

Whether photographing refugees, families in America, elderly retirement situations or children in the classroom, Jim and Mary have consistently expressed a unique love for people and have immersed their lives in the people they photograph. They began their careers as people photographers and find that is their greatest joy today. For a further view of their portfolio site, visit www.whitmers.com/ExperienceCounts
