"Photography is not just about clicking the shutter, you have to dig deeper, and see the final image well beforehand in your minds eye. Understanding how and where natural light will fall, and how supplemental lighting can balance what the camera sees and what the eye sees are just a few of the first steps in accomplishing my goal, creating an exceptional image." —Jim Kruger

"I have worked with Landmark for over three years and this team is the best out there."
–Cat Yahrmatter, Barry Berg Group

"My company recently used Landmark to photograph a completed project with a quick turnaround for finished images. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Jim has a keen eye of how to capture the subject matter, but is also open to suggestions from the architect, which is rare. The value was excellent and unparalleled to other photographers we've worked with in the past. I would very much recommend working with them."
–Charlie Simmons, Charlie & Co. Design

"I have used Landmark Photography for two major shoots now and I have to say; I have not worked with a better company. Jim is great to get along with and understands his clients and their needs. I would highly recommend Landmark Photography to anyone looking for an excellent photographer."
–Teresa Glatz, Director of Sales & Marketing, Sheraton St. Paul Woodbury Hotel

"I have worked with Landmark Photography for several years. They have always been professional, accommodating and reasonably priced. Plus their work is excellent."
–Martha Capps, Capps Marketing

"For many years we shot film for our remodeling project portfolio. We finally made the leap to digital after much convincing. Landmark was our first choice because of their mass presence in the market place. I have found working with Jon from Landmark very enjoyable and efficient. He has developed a sense of what things are important to us when photographing our projects. I always look forward to our next shoot!"
–Tim Purcell Jr., President, Purcell Quality, Inc.

"Jon was great to work with. He understood our needs, was flexible with our changes, and the turn-around time was fantastic. We'll definitely work with Landmark again."
–Melissa M. Scovronski, Metropolitan Airports Commission

"We hired Jim Kruger for the 1st job in the beginning of 2008 and we had to had have him come back and do all of our photography since then. We were looking for someone that could truly capture the architectural essence of our multi-faceted space. Jim not only accomplished this for us he also went above and beyond. We use his work to sell our space for an array of different events and he has helped us show off our venues to people from out of state that do bookings with us. You could say we have been lucky to find him and truly get what we paid for. He knows the angles, the lighting and he also will tell you what he is really good at and will not take shots just to take more shots. He will give you his professional opinion; and take it from me, listen to what he has to say because he will go outside of the box when it is good for you to do so and your space will end up looking amazing."
–Delaram Shoorideh, Director of Sales & Marketing, SEVEN The STEAKHOUSE, SEVEN SUSHI ULTRALOUNGE

"Landmark Photography & Design showed nothing but professionalism while working on my interior design portfolio. Jon's patience and discerning eye made for a very smooth and rewarding experience. I have highly recommended them to fellow colleagues and will continue to use them for future projects."
–Jane-Marie Bloomberg, Embellishments Design Studio

"Setting up a photo shoot with Landmark is simple and the guys do a fantastic job taking high quality photographs of my work. They turn around digital proofs quickly and that allows me to get them seen immediately by potential clients."
