Brad Jaeck and Carol Hansen
Please share a bit about your background:
We had separate photography backgrounds prior to the beginning of our personal relationship 23 years ago. We officially established our business in 2001, initially at the DeKoven Center and moved to our downtown location in 2005. Brad was a photographer in the U.S. Army prior to starting his 40-year career at S.C. Johnson, including seven years as a corporate photographer. Carol’s passion for photography started with a class at Spectrum School for the Arts, where she sought out a way to capture the spectacular scenes she enjoyed as a lifelong outdoor enthusiast. We travel extensively in our RV to add images to our gallery.
What was the inspiration for your business?
The joy of photography has been a passion for both of us for many years. A natural progression was to share our images with the public. With our experience, we felt we could also provide quality work for commercial clients.
What are your most popular items?
Racine images which include familiar landmarks and our lakefront.
Do you have a little-known specialty?
We are custom framers which gives our customers the ability to choose the framing for our images which best fits their home or business. The other portion of our business is commercial, specializing in architecture and interior photography primarily for interior designers.
Can you share a sneak peek to your future plans?
With all the expansion in Racine, our goal is to grow our customer base by providing quality images to businesses, institutions and homeowners.
