I've been a photographer almost all of my life.
My father had Cooper's Studio in Bemidji, Minnesota from 1946-1973. My uncle, Sam Cooper, had Cooper's Studio in Grand Forks , North Dakota for over forty years.
By the age of fifteen, I was taking senior photos and wedding pictures. I was fortunate to be trained by my dad as he was a wonderful photographer. After college, I also attended the Winona Lakes School of Professional Photography in Winona Lakes, Indiana. There we were trained by the best portrait photographers in the country.
After many years as a Financial Consultant, I retired and have now been able to pursue my art. For several years now, my wife Kathy, and I have been photographing seniors and families and nature. We want it to be a joyful, calm experience for all involved but also know that attention to every detail is critical. That's Kathy's job and she does it well.
We charge a modest fee, no packages, frames, etc. We also photograph high school seniors to look like high school seniors.
We guarantee our work and have a quick turnaround from start to finish.
We hope to work with you and your family.
David and Kathy Cooper
