Michigan Wedding Photography, Detroit Wedding Photography, Ann Arbor Wedding Photography, Michigan Portrait Photography: by Adam Czap bio picture

Thanks for stopping by!

The short version: my job rocks and I love it!


The slightly longer version:

I grew up in a small town in the thumb of Michigan before earning my bachelor's degree at the University of Michigan in 2005. I was not always a photographer! I majored in English and minored in Political Science through the School of Education. I graduated with my teaching certifications in K-12 for both subjects. During the last year or so of my college experience, I actually got turned on to the idea of becoming a DENTIST, through the help of several roommates and friends who were already going through the process. But I decided to give the 'teaching thing' a try for a while since I had almost completed my degree. I left the educational world having two total years of middle school and high school teaching experience. During my time as a teacher I took dental school pre-requisite classes at night and during the summer at Wayne State University in Detroit... and that's how the photography business got started. I needed a way to pay for my classes without disrupting the family budget!

I created a monster. :-D

Fast forward: I finished all my classes at WSU and decided that I loved what I was doing so much that I was not willing to heavily invest in another career (dentistry) that I might not enjoy as much. Heather and I are both very thankful for how much God has blessed this business in a relatively short time span!

I have an insatiable appetite for learning every aspect of becoming a top-tier photographer. I'm not there yet, but I'll let you know if I ever feel like I've arrived ;-). I'm fun, energetic, easy to get along with, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE people!!

By the way... I'm on Facebook! Feel free to check out my public profile!
