About Me

Please take a look at the images you see here and feel free to comment, offer an opinion or suggestion, or send us any questions you may have. Working with my co-producer and professional MUA Nicole Tooze, [], we shoot both in the studio and on location. Clients have ranged from Corporate Communications to Advertising, Architectural and Industrial to Fashion, Music, and Editorial, head shots for musicians, actors and models, to photos for publication, record companies, music promoters and talent agencies. You can reach me via this site, through my email address, or on Facebook: … Grigalunus).

We are also offering a discounted rate to all working models in need of a new or updated look. (make-up/hair styling included). We have a great space near Lake Michigan, but our specialty is on-location Fashion/ Editorial. Turn around time for professionally edited and corrected images is usually within 7 days, and a full CD, or a full set of professionally printed photos will always be provided.

Additionally, anyone interested in being part of the crew, (wardrobe stylists, hair stylists, production coordinators, etc), feel free to contact either of us and include your current rates. We look forward to hearing your ideas.

On Fashion: Fashion Photography is not just about how a particular dress, piece of lingerie, or other clothing will look on a fashion model. It's also about a lifestyle. The clothes we wear define what we are, and who we are. They are an extension of ourselves. So it's always our goal to express those thoughts and ideas as accurately as possible.

On photography: "The photographer’s most important and likewise most difficult task is not learning to manage his camera, or to develop, or to print. It is learning to see photographically – that is, learning to see his subject matter in terms of the capacities of his tools and processes, so that he can instantaneously translate the elements and values in a scene before him into the photograph he wants to make". Edward Weston.

On personal achievement: “Achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistent effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances". Orison Swett Marden

"It was a true pleasure to work with Noel. He's easy going, yet keeps it professional. He was willing to help with poses if I felt stuck and comfortable enough to ask for help. I can't wait to work with Noel and his team again! I know I will get great photos after a shoot with them".
