Judy Herrmann & Mike Starke create distinctive imagery for advertising, corporate and editorial clients. Their work has won recognition from Graphis, Communication Arts, Lurzer’s Archive and numerous awards annuals. They were early adopters of digital photography and served as Olympus Visionaries, suggesting and testing new features, for 10 years. Their love for pushing the envelope and bleeding edge technologies has led them to add Computer Generated Imaging (CGI) to their vast repertoire of digital photography, lighting and digital special effects skills.
In addition to creating eye-catching imagery for clients, the duo continue to pursue a life-long commitment to educating and supporting their professional community. Herrmann, a past president of the American Society of Media Photographers, recipient of the United Nations’ IPC Leadership Award and adjunct faculty at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications, regularly speaks at industry conferences on such topics as career development, business planning, marketing and adapting to change.
