About Bates Photographic Studio

Although I've been shooting professionally since 1986, Bates Photographic Studio was officially born 1999 in the Houston Heights. My studio was originally conceived as a specialty service offering primarily B&W documentary work on film, my niche. Over the years we have grown into a studio offering Weddings, Portraits and Commercial Work...of course in color but also with my unique blend of beautiful B&W that few photographers have the ability to match. I believe in classic images without the fluff. Images we shot 13 years ago populate this website and look as classic and unique as the day we developed the film; which ultimately is my goal. Our idea's are rooted in real life and NOT in the latest trends...trends like leaving your flowers in color and the rest of the image in B&W. I digress. Point is, I care about what we make for you and will give it the same attention to detail as if it were being hung in my house or my studio. I am an artist at heart and the integrity I have about the work I produce is the same no matter what the assignment.
