Who I Am, What I Do

I am a seasoned commercial photographer serving corporate and non-profit clients in the Detroit metropolitan area. Peplin Photographic has been my sole proprietorship since 1979. Prior to that, I began with an eight-year stint as a newspaper photojournalist in Port Huron, Michigan. I accept digital imaging assignments for a myriad of end uses, including public relations, web sites, media releases, special events, and annual reports, and/or virtually any commercially-oriented photographic need.

What I Can Do For You

I offer a wide range of capabilities, from simple “head shots”, executive and environmental portraiture (all on-site), groups of any size, special events, industrial products (auto parts) and factory situations, plus both interior and exterior architecture. The 37 years of experience I have accumulated can be useful on many levels, such as pre-event photo planning and on-site flexibility when the unexpected occurs, as it occasionally does with live events.

Why You Should Be Using Me

I have been able to build a strong base of loyal customers by providing the elements necessary for success in any marketplace: a professional quality product with absolute dependability, the flexibility and willingness to respond to customers’ needs on very short notice while consistently meeting difficult deadlines and ensuring a guarantee of satisfaction on every job. All, of course, delivered at a fair price. Personable service is simply a given, as my clients will attest.

Doing Backflips

My minimum location shoot fee is one hour, so you will never be forced to pay for a half or full day when all you need is a very brief session. I never have issues with last-minute calls for assignments and I am always prepared to meet extreme turnaround times, no matter how ridiculous they may seem. My post-shoot image processing and manipulation can forever change how you think about photography. A silk purse from a sow's ear? Let me show you what I can do. You may be amazed.
