At the age of 17, photography was not a discipline with which I was remotely familiar. After entering the Art Institute of Chicago at age 17 on a four-year scholarship for painting and drawing, my advisor suggested I expand my proficiencies and investigate a new visual media. He recommended photography! I purchased my first camera for $5 at the State Street Kresge's Department Store in downtown Chicago. It was a plastic rangefinder that needed 2 1/4 X 2 1/4 film. This was the beginning of a lifelong passion for photographic exploration, experimentation and enjoyment!

As of 2004, 34 years later, I am a retired Art Director/Artist of 38 years. Photography was m major area of concentration-teaching and managing photo programs at both the high school and college level. I am now a professional photographer located in Lombard, IL, specializing in portraits (individual, family, children, maternity) and weddings. Other image solutions offered in my work include: copy work, photo documentation of artist's artwork (2D & 3D), photo restoration and pet photos. I am still teaching individuals and small groups at my studio in Lombard.

    He had another photographer there with him, and they both knew what they were doing.

    Randy photographed our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier. He and his assistant made the whole process fun and seamless. And the photos were amazing!! Truly. They were artistic, gorgeous and captured the moments perfectly. Even the way he put our wedding book together was the nicest I’ve ever seen. We still receive compliments on the photos 3 years later. I highly recommend Randall Bullen photography.
