About: Bio


My love for photography began in college as yearbook editor.  Taking that passion to the next level, I began shooting weddings and selling pictures from my dorm room.  My first commercial photography job was working for a group of wood craftsman in Iowa who would use my photographs of their beautiful one-of-a-kind tables, cabinets, and furniture to showcase their workmanship to potential clients.

40+ years later, the passion for photography continues. Bradley Photography has developed into a full-service business serving families, businesses, and non-profit organization. We have an indoor studio plus a large property with multiple gardens, a wildflower field, and a private lake that can be used for portraits or we can go to the location of your choice. For business photography, a portable studio can be taken to businesses and corporate offices for professional head-shots and product photography. I also teach classes to the public and lead a volunteer photography team that provides no cost services to non-profits and low income families through Church of the Resurrection.  I'm also active in providing photography services in the special need communities.

When you contact us, we will start by discussing your project in detail in order to have a clear understanding of your needs and expectations. Then we will provide you with a detailed quotation and explanation of our services and fees before we begin. You’ll quickly realize that we’re not just an assembly line snapping pictures and generating invoices. Instead, we want to partner with you and understand your vision and priorities.

Most importantly, our business is guided by Christian ethics.  We believe helping people is more important than profit and everyone, regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation, will be treated with respect and provided the highest level of service.   One of my favorite quotations is from Francis of Assisi - "Preach the gospel daily and only if necessary use words".  It is my sincere hope that I can be a blessing for you through our services.

We would enjoy the opportunity to talk with you and discuss your needs. We strive to provide professional services at affordable prices.

While I may get most of the credit for great pictures, here is the real secret to my success in photography and in life.  It's my wonderful wife Christy of 35+ years who makes me laugh, gives me purpose, and encourages me to pursue my passion!  I couldn't do it without her.

Thank you for considering us!
