About Montanus Photography

Neil Montanus bio    View our recent press articles

Neil Montanus and his son Jim offer a wide range of professional photography services to businesses and consumers including commercial/advertising, product photography, editorial, events, portraits, weddings, photography classes and more.

We also sell and lease our fine art photography to decorate your home or business.

We have been passionate about photography since at the age of 10, my father Neil Montanus won a Chicago Tribune photo contest of a kitten inside the bell of a tuba.

He went on to become a legendary Kodak photographer, traveling around the globe, shooting in some of the world's most exotic locations, traversing more than 32 different countries in the process. His adventures and world travels became fodder for hundreds of articles in local, national and even international publications.

His resume includes the ‘best portrait ever’ of Walt Disney (still in use today), the official presidential portrait of Gerald Ford, and a fellowship with the American Society of Photographers, one of only 27 photographers to hold that distinction when he was awarded it in 1977. And he won several international photography salons. Read more about his fascinating career here: www.montanusphotography.com/bio

At the age of 87, he is still the patriarch of the photography business and lends a hand whenever he can. No matter how big or small the assignment, we are dedicated to provide our customers with the best photography service at an affordable price.
