2019 Year in Review

2019 was a year of ups and downs but through it all, we captured some amazing images. 2019 marks 10 years in business for Robert Bowden Photography.

We renewed the lease on our studio in Dexter, which is just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. We continue to be one of the largest photography studios in Washtenaw County serving the Ann Arbor, Dexter, Milan, Chelsea, Whitmore Lake, South Lyon, and many other surrounding communities. We will be in our current home in Dexter at least through November of 2020.

Our work was published across the Air Force as a reunion between the Air Force Cheif of Staff and the PJ who rescued him was captured by Robert during a conference he was photographing in Washington DC. This was the single most publish photo assignment to date that Robert worked on.

Work Hard and Play Hard. In 2019 Jessica and Robert were able to take two trips. As with any photographer around half of the suit case was loaded down with camera equipment. First up in April was Belgium. Back in 2008 Robert visited Belgium on an international exchange. It was amazing to be able to go back and see the sights again and create images to help remember this beautiful country forever.

In October they went on an anniversary cruise with some friends from high school. Once again the camera was packed and the sun of the Caribbean awaited.

Weddings remain a staple at Robert Bowden Photography, we don’t advertise actively but rely on word of mouth from past clients. I only like to take a few weddings per year to deliver the highest quality service to these amazing couples.

Sports photography continued to be a major time commitment with at one point our team was working 7 days a week 12+ hours per day to keep up with the work. This was not sustainable and we took our foot off the gas to refocus on what we love about photography, creating a personal connection with our clients. While we still do sports and action photography we are more selective to ensure our time is being used to its full potential.

As we welcome in 2020 and I reflect back on the past year I am encouraged for what the future holds. There are always events in a person life who defines them, makes them stronger, makes them a better person. 2019 was that year for Robert Bowden Photography, We stand ready to serve our clients even better than in the past, to always strive for the highest level of customer service and to be the premier photography company in Metro Detroit.

Happy New Years from Robert & Jessica and the rest of the team at Robert Bowden Photography
