We create beautiful memories.
Help us create school portraits and sports portraits that capture important moments for families. Learn how to take beautiful images for parents who want to remember the journey their sons and daughters are on as students and athletes, preserve their family history, and share their joy with the other people in their lives.
We believe in using our photographic talents to give back to the community, so in addition to taking senior, school, and sports portraits, we also donate our time to document events for organizations such as Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, Camp Hometown Heroes, and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.
Visual Image Photography was started in 1978 by Tom Hayes. Our goal since we began has been to take the best picture possible every time we press the shutter. In 2015, Tom's daughter Courtney became the new owner of VIP when he retired. The foundation of being committed to creating beautiful portraits continues to be a family tradition for over 40 years.
Our work culture is built on a team oriented mindset that has fun and brings a smile to the job everyday. Teaching new photographers the skills to create beautiful portraits, and helping our current staff to continue developing their skills is important to our company. Our team is people oriented, socially connected, and fun to work with.
A Day in the life of a Photographer
No day is the same as the next when you are a photographer! Traveling around the Milwaukee or Chicago regions and being on time to your photo assignments is something you'll do every day. Our scheduling managers take geography into account when creating work schedules, so we do our best to limit the need to be a road warrior. Photographers in WI will frequently carpool in company vehicles. Overnight travel is only needed for the best of our best action photographers when they cover IHSA and WIAA state finals events.
You will be the face of VIP at our schools, youth leagues, and other VIP accounts. Our friendly, efficient teams make picture day an enjoyable experience for school faculty and administrators. Parents, students, and athletes learn to count on our team members to create portraits that preserve these important moments in their family history.
There is a lead photographer on your photo assignments, so you're not on your own. Returning photographers are encouraged to develop their skills and knowledge in order to advance into a lead role. Senior portraits and school portraits are primarily taken indoors, while sports teams and individual portraits are taken inside or outside, based on the time of year, weather, and sport/s being photographed. Weekend assignments during the peak of each season are generally on Saturdays.
Action and event photographers work on their own in the afternoons and weekends. Using your own camera equipment, you will attend games, performances, concerts, plays, dances, and graduations to capture compelling images for the school yearbooks. Some school day classroom candid, student life, and pep rally coverage is part of a typical work week.
Seasonal, with overtime hours available during our peak times during the school year. While our office is open from 8:00-5:00, Monday through Friday, we have photo assignments that range from early mornings, during school hours, evening hours, and on the weekends. Expect to work 10+ Saturdays per year, with some Sunday work as well.
With a flexible approach to scheduling, VIP is able to accommodate most class schedules, vacation requests, and your freelance work.
