wePhoto professional photography formed in 2008 when Lad Strayer and Vicki Schmucker merged their photographic talents to offer their services for business, personal and non profit agencies.
Since the early 1980‘s, Lad has worked as a professional photographer working in commercial, industrial, editorial and portrait photography, specializing in the technical aspects of lighting and exposure.
An award winning editorial photographer, Lad has worked for the Associated Press, The Sporting News, The Toledo Free Press and The Daily Telegram. His work documenting the homeless in Lenawee County was featured in a book titled The Daily Bread by Jennifer Burd, published in 2010.
Vicki Schmucker began her photography career as a freelance photographer contributing to The Daily Telegram since 2006. She was recently recognized by the Michigan Press Association 2011 Better Newspaper awards. The State of Michigan recently selected Vicki’s work for use in their Pure Michigan advertising campaign.
On top of their understanding of the skills and technique necessary to produce an outstanding image, Lad and Vicki interact and collaborate with their clients to present that business in the best possible light.
