Thanks for stopping by—I’m Kyle Bondeson and I’ve been a working professional photographer since 2009.
From 2005-2009 I attended Eastern Illinois University where I got a BA in Visual Communications through the journalism department. (Basically, photojournalism) From there, I moved to New Mexico, where I started my photography career as an assistant wedding photographer and a school photographer before being hired as a studio portrait photographer at a long-running Albuquerque studio. From 2009-2017, photographed families, children, newborns, high school seniors, headshots, and events. I returned to my hometown Chicago-area in 2017 and found work at an in-house commercial photography studio in the Chicago suburbs.
In 2018, I started Kyle Bondeson Photography, a professional headshot and portrait photography business offering high-quality and affordable business and corporate headshots, on-location staff headshots, actor headshots and portraits, and outdoor family portraits to individuals and businesses of all sizes.
Just as every person is unique, portrait photography is not a one-size-fits-all. Photobooth-style operation and I approach each of my clients as an opportunity to collaborate with them to achieve their desired results. I’ve spent the past 12 years shooting everything from weddings to automotive photography; there’s not much that I haven’t done and my broad experience level allows me to tailor my sessions to my client’s individual needs. As someone who is far more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, I strive to create a stress-free and laid-back atmosphere for my clients. There’s nothing I love to hear more than “that wasn’t too bad,” or “thanks for making this easy.”
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!
