My Name Is

Jerry Alt

Meet the Photographer​

My name is Jerry Alt, and I own and am the principal photographer at ALT Imagery studio. I do a variety of commercial, fine art and portrait photography, and my work has been published in various media from books and magazines to corporate websites. I’ve been taking photos since I was 10 years old, and my passion turned into a profession in 2009. I opened my first studio in 2013 and have been doing this full time since 2014. My clients love my work, but they typically comment most on how comfortable I make them feel and how much they laugh. I embrace the adage that if you do what you love you’ll never work a day in your life. My studio is located at the corner of Dodge and Greenwood in Evanston, Illinois. I’ve done work all over the country for individuals, corporate clients and associations. I’ve got a work ethic that makes me constantly stretch my own abilities, and I teach other photographers on a regular basis in an ongoing effort to improve our profession. I’m on the Board of Directors of Chicago Photographic Society, a member of the Professional Photographers Association of America, the National Photographic Society (London), and the American Photographic Artists. In addition to running the studio, I am an active contributing member of various community organizations.

We had two photo shoots with Jerry in late 2017. The first was a family photo shoot. He took a variety of poses with the whole family, just parents and just kids. We were instructed to bring two outfits, which was great, because I liked myself in only one, so that gave me choices. The second shoot was of my daughter, who is a dancer. He photographed her with a light background and also using dramatic lighting and a dark background causing a stunning play of light and shadow which highlighted her musculature. I posted it on Facebook and my friends LOVED it. The photos turned out great and overall I am very pleased.
