Dreyfus + Associates
For more than three decades, our passion for visual storytelling and commitment to exceeding clients’ expectations have positioned us among the premier photography studios in the Midwest. Whether it’s collaborating with top ad agencies and design shops or working directly with clients, we bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to every project.
Located in midtown St. Louis, the studio is the hub of our world. Inside our historic building are shooting spaces with 16-foot beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls, large arched windows, hardwood floors, and an on-site workshop for set construction. In addition, we travel to locations all over the world, from boardrooms, hospitals and factories to farms, vineyards and vistas in the middle of nowhere.
Agricultural, healthcare, industrial, product and people photography are areas of emphasis that reflect both our versatility and expertise. In addition, our in-house production team can seamlessly handle everything from casting models to complex logistical challenges, like coordinating the 5,000-mile/15-day cross country shoot, America’s Movers.
If you’ve got a story worth telling, we hope you’ll consider letting us provide the visual narrative it deserves.
I equate art with beauty and connectivity. These intangibles are hard to define, because they are deeply personal. We know it when we see it. We can feel it. Connect with it in a way that words alone can’t convey. My aspiration, of course, is to incorporate these elements into my photography. To create images that reveal not just what’s in front of the lens, but something inside of us as well.
Sometimes these moments quietly hold our attention, like the simple grace and fleeting perfection of a dancer balanced on point. Other times they invite us on a journey, sharing the effortless flight of an egret trailed only by a rhythmic dance of water droplets on the lake’s surface.
To me, photography, like life, is about what happens in the moment. Over the years, I’ve learned that not every image turns out exactly as I see it in my mind, but that’s okay. The elusive nature of an exceptional photograph gives me something to strive for, and I’m grateful for that.
