James Markus Photography LLC

I have been taking photos for 40 years, and worked 20 years as a professional advertising/marketing photographer in the Creative Services department of the Grand Rapids Press. I voluntarily left the press in October 2008 to open my own studio in Hudsonville Michigan. In February 2009, and March 2010 I was voted the top photographer in Grand Rapids Michigan by readers of the Grand Rapids Press, and mlive. I shoot many types of photography, and I strive for excellence in all my photographic work. I have provided photographic services for over four hundred clients in the last two years.
