Accredited Portrait
photographer serving
Medicine hat and area
for 14 years

The birth of my children in the late 1990’s gave life to a new talent. I received a Canon Rebel SLR from my aunt. Those days were lean, so for years many of my Christmas presents were film that came with processing. In 2005 I bought in the digital photography realm. For the next two years I took many classes on photography and photo editing. Due to the demand to turn the hobby into a growing business, Madchen Studios opened it’s doors in early February 2007.

In 2010 Madchen Studios was able to open a studio in the heart of Medicine Hat’s downtown district. It was during this time that I became a nationally accredited photographer with the Professional Photographers of Canada. For 6 years Madchen Studios served the community of Southern Alberta with Photography. Madchen Media was born during this time as the need for design services grew larger.

In 2016 a debilating shoulder injury caused me to take a break. I closed the studio doors, and began to further study photography and design while working on healing my shoulder.
In 2018 Madchen Studios and Madchen Media are both back and happily serving our local market here in Medicine Hat as well as many other companies world wide.
