POMEROY — Brandon Bartee, who has operated a photography studio in Tuppers Plains for the past four years, has moved into more spacious quarters in the Crow Building at 109 West Second Street in Pomeroy.
Bartee says his interest in photography goes back 15 years. He credits a professional photographer who was his mentor for teaching him the skills and techniques he needed to know to open his own studio. It was a desire to expand and broaden his business that prompted him to make the move to Pomeroy.
Bartee’s photographs have been published in the Washington Post and several other national publications and he won an award in an Ellen DeGeneres Contest with a photograph he had taken which had been submitted by a relative.
Bartee said he has traveled many places to do photography and went to Scotland to shoot a wedding one time.
Photographs he has taken line the hall into the studio area which consists of several rooms, one overlooking the Ohio River.
Bartee works with several others who have specialized skills like Kimberly Jones whose talents are in photographing families and children, Bradley Jones and Rana Thompson whose skills go in other directions.
Senior pictures, taken both indoors and out, families and children, engagements and weddings are all handled by Bartee, the lead photographer, with assistance from his associates.
