| Jim and Mary Whitmer are professional freelance photographers living in Wheaton, IL. They have worked as a husband-wife photo team for the past 35 years, combining their photographic and artistic talents in creating book and magazine covers and varied illustrations for the editorial and advertising markets.
At the end of 2001, they realized that their vast assortment of images taken literally from around the world, would make excellent backdrop photos for the many churches that have been using image projection to enhance worship. They continue to draw from their photo files, but are now doing new photography and image development specifically for churches. Using computers in their commercial work on a daily basis has given the Whitmers the opportunity to creatively adapt many graphics with a wide assortment of digital editing tools.
They continue to travel extensively on photojournalistic assignments and have captured unique photos in remote parts of the world. Their international and domestic travel has given them the opportunity to further expand their large collections of scenic and inspirational photos. They also focus on life style imagery of real people in their work and plan to incorporate many people images in their upcoming CD titles.
Jim and Mary have an extensive collection of photographs on their website, www.whitmers.com . These are available for print and publishing needs.
They are both graduates of Wheaton College and use their visual communication skills to express their faith in their photography.
