• And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
  • - Genesis 1: 3-4

There's more to a composition than ensuring elements align in uniformity with an established set of guidelines.

There's a story to be told. A substance to encapsulate in a way that doesn't only catch the eye but also stimulates both sense and imagination.

Welcome to the essence of Ervin Photography's everyday mission.

Using more than 30 years of experience as a photographer, lighting expert and image editor, Robert Ervin takes client ambitions and melds them into a visual narrative that captivates target audiences and draws attention toward the highlighted products, services and people therein. His acumen for doing so has garnered nationwide and regional acclaim, including a National Citation of Excellence from the American Advertising Federation, a "The One Show" award and several best-in-show accolades from the Omaha and Lincoln AAF.

But evidence of those merits isn't displayed prominently in the primary workspace of Ervin Photo's studio, located in the American heartland. Instead, visitors will find a humble, hardworking Midwesterner perfecting his craft as a versatile photographer and videographer with vast experience in agriculture, food, lifestyle, industrial, portrait and action work, but whose specialty is adapting to customer needs rather than a specific style or genre. Professional partners such as Bailey-Lauerman Advertising, TD Ameritrade, Union Pacific, Syngenta, Gavilon, Omaha Steaks, First National Bank of Omaha, Allstate and FMC Corporation -- among many others -- have seen their brand enhanced through his endeavors, coupled with a pleasant, efficient and thorough campaign creation and execution process.

It all takes place on any conceivable location or within Ervin Photo's full-service, 6,000 square-foot studio nestled into the Omar Baking Building in Omaha's historic Midtown district. More than mere image capture and retouching is offered here; Bob and his staff are happy to take care of location scouting, talent, hair and makeup, prop styling, project coordination and any other necessary creative duties.
