I've been a photographer since my teens, pursuing photography full time since the start of 2013 when I left the software industry after a long and successful career. It was time to fulfill a promise I made when I left the photography business in the late 70's. Back then, the software industry was new, wide open and there were fortunes to be made. Photography had remained a passion though so when I began to tire of the corporate world, photography was the only thing I wanted to do. I am based in the Chicago Metro area. Specifically the Fox River Valley corridor around towns and cities like Yorkville, Aurora, Oswego, Geneva, St. Charles and Naperville. Click the image above to see what sort of photography I've been working on of late.  I do commercial work, and lifestyle photography working with individuals and familes, models, dancers, musicians, etc. I work on location, indoors or out, sometimes with a cart of equipment and an assistant - other times its just me and a few items. When you decide to hire me, we will figure all that out.

Business head shots start at $110. Basic portrait photography sessions start at $150 which run about 30-50 minutes. Perfect for a prom formal or group shot. You will get a few edited and processed images but it won't be a disk or thumb drive full. Longer more involved sessions provide more; more time to work, more clothing changes, more "looks" and more images. And more post processing afterwards, so they cost more too. A fully blown session spanning several hours plus can run $400+. I'm just sayin'.

Something I have started to offer is what I call Location Services. What the heck is that you say? Its where I lease equipment and/or provide my experience for simple shoots or larger productions. Sometimes a photographer, an agency or business in the area needs a studio, and/or equipment and maybe a bit of help. I have access to locations, equipment, props, talent, digital technicians, filmmakers, make-up persons, stylists, caterers - let me know what you need and I can arrange it. 

I love to work with other photographers and creatives and am more than willing to answer your questions. If you call or email me, I will answer you as quickly as my schedule allows. 

Email me with your contact info and a brief outline of what you want to achieve and we can sort it out. If you must call, you will probably have to leave a message but I do return all my messages as soon as I can. Email is by far the best way to reach me. I do provide a contact form you may use if you wish. 

My blog offers more insight into my thoughts on photography, on the equipment I use and occasionally, a peek at the business end of it. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Wally Kilburg Photography & Services is incorporated in the State of Illinois and is a fully insured and Veteran owned business supporting our current Military and it's Veterans. Semper Fi.
