Jim Thiele - The Photographer

The studio known as The Photographer was started in 1992 at 1100 Kane St., La Crosse by Jim Thiele a local photographer for better than 25 years. By 1996 he was looking for more space and better visibility. At that time the old Bethel Lutheran Church building went up for sale. Jim wasted no time. Bought the building and with a little bit of remodeling and renovation it became the home of the photographer. The church was built in 1889 and his plan is to keep the building as original as possible on the outside; however it is rather difficult to maintain the same level of originality on the inside and operate the studio. Weve made no more changes than necessary.

The building has given Jim the opportunity to set up a very efficient studio with many nice background choices. An outdoor studio located behind the building has made nice background choices as well.

Also in 1996 Jim took Carol Lindberg on as a partner and general manager as well as customer service and in 2001 Stephanie Sheley joined the group. Stephanie is the digital imaging expert and sales person.

The photographer specializes in family, graduation, children, pets and wedding photography.

Studio hours are by appointment.
