Why The Studio?
WE'RE GLAD YOU ASKED!
THE STUDIO DIFFERENCE
No doubt you’ve seen countless portraits. Some are just “okay” while others have a way of drawing you toward them. They have feeling, impact and something special about them that screams skill, quality and creativity. That’s what it’s like to have a portrait from The Studio. We believe that great senior portraits don’t just “happen“. It takes getting to know who you are and having the knowledge, creativity and ability to naturally capture you. Look around, then look at us – there is a difference!
Having served the La Crosse area for over 50 years, we know portraits. As the area’s largest senior photography studio, we know what seniors want. We’re constantly trying out new ideas, looks and techniques to bring new and fresh ideas to our customers. As one of Wisconsin’s top 10 photographers, the President of the state professional photography association and sought after speaker, Tad’s staying on top of what’s going on in the industry. What’s more, as the area’s only certified photographer with both his Master and Craftsman degrees, you know you’re getting a skilled professional whose artistry is proudly reflected in each and every one of his portraits.
Your portfolio will contain more variety than any other studio. We pride ourselves on giving our customers more than what they expect. You’ll leave the clothing consultation inspired and excited about your session. You’ll leave the session amazed at how much fun it was having your portraits taken and, when you view your images, you’ll surely be impressed with the incredible variety and quality of images you have to choose from.
With three huge camera rooms, the beautiful historic downtown area, and literally hundreds of in-studio background options to choose from, you’ll find several that match your style and personality. And, if you have another location in mind, we’ll come to you!
Service & Quality
We’re fortunate to have on staff an entire team of professionals ready to serve you. Whether you’re needing the help of our knowledgeable, no pressure customer service and sales staff, or would like to speak directly with our in-house artwork, design or printing team, we’re here when you need us.
Most other studios give up control of the final product by sending your images to an outside artist or lab. As a studio committed to providing you with the highest quality, we’ve invested in the people, latest technology and best products to give you portraits that will not only look great now, but will stand the test of time.
We’re continually striving to bring you the latest in products and have a full team of retouch artists and designers at your service. Whether you’re looking for a product we already have, or want to try something new, we have the knowledge and expertise to get you exactly what you‘re looking for. You won’t find any boring templates here! Be sure to check out our one-of-a kind graduation announcements and image storyboards. We know you’ll be glad you did.
Natural light provides a lighting quality that is superior to flash photography – the lighting used in most other portrait studios. As one of the country’s largest natural light studios, we’ve dedicated two floors and over 28 windows solely to natural light photography. Over the years we’ve refined our lighting techniques using natural light. This has long been our specialty and we do it better than anyone else. Compare our work to any other studio and see for yourself the difference that natural light makes.

We want you to be absolutely thrilled with your portraits. If you are not 100% happy we’ll either fix it, retake that part of your session, or we’ll give you your money back – guaranteed!
