Roger Preston Blatz (just Roger Preston in business) took an interest in photography while in high school.  After attending college at the University of Missouri he later went to a photography trade school in New York City.  In the 20 years that followed he worked as a commercial photographer.  Roger's extensive work and experience encompassed product photography for catalogs, jewelry, architectural, advertising, food, portraiture and photographing artists' works.  In day to day shooting as well as travel, he and Roxanne have accumulated an impressive array of images featuring landscapes & scenics; architectural vignettes; abstracts; humor and other categories.  Roger and Roxanne are now promoting this library as fine art and stock photography.
Roxanne Bebee Blatz was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1957.  While attending the University of Missouri-Columbia, she met Roger.  After receiving her degree in Civil Engineering in December 1978, Roxanne began a long career in the field of structural engineering with an emphasis in highway and railroad bridge design and rehabilitation.  Roger introduced her to photography and it has been their shared passion over many years.  Roxanne loves to use the long lens to bring her subject to meet her.  In their extensive travels she has enjoyed photographing landscapes, architectural vignettes, and humorous subject.  Roxanne has particularly enjoyed developing her "Lone Tree" series of photographs.
