About us

I'm Don Schmidt, proprietor and main photographer at Schmidt Photography. I've lived in Gillette since 1971 and have been professionally involved in photography for most of 35 years, first shooting news and sports events for newspapers, then for the past decade as a portrait/wedding/commercial photographer.

My wife, Katy, makes up the rest of the team. She got her feet wet as a still photographer for a television station in the 1970s and now is my assistant and second photographer, mainly for weddings.

We use professional digital cameras for most photography but still use 35mm, medium format, and large format film cameras when the jobs call for them. We've found that in most cases digital works the best for us and for our clients.

Our office and studio are located at our residence. For us that means convenience; for our clients it means we have fewer expenses to pass along, which results in slightly lower prices for our goods and services. Look at the quality of our photography, then check our prices. You'll be glad you did.
