Status Image Photography est. 1989



Status Image officially opened in Decatur in 1989. Our mission always has been to create images for our clients that will endure. We never catered to the latest fad, as is visible in our portraiture. The images you see inside vary in age, some 20 years old, some a few months old.  Quality work is timeless.

The focus of Status Image is classic portraits,commercial photography, and to teach photography, lighting, and photoshop classes. We’ve had a range of people attend these classes, from literally opening their brand new camera in the first class, to seasoned studio owners, as well as tons of weekend warriors.  Whatever you consider yourself, we will work with you to further your photography art or business, and make sure you have a good time doing it.

We also own and operate which manufactures and sells tools for photographers, with the popular “Eagle i” white balance/exposure device, (patent pending) as our flagship product.
