At King Photography we are a truly multi dimensional, cross generational and decade spanning imaging business,
conducted in a family atmosphere. After graduating from USM, Bert King assumed a territory management position
with Olan Mills in 1982 and has built upon that experience to create what has become a mainstay in South Mississippi
photography. Connie, a USM Masters degree holder, joined the team as it grew and brings 15 years of imaging
experience to the table after teaching school for 14 years. This family team brings over 40 years total photography
experience to bear in every photograph they create! This adds a dimension of caring and expertise which simply
cannot exist with people new to photography and corporate button pushers.
As proof of their excellence, the Kings have a list of local clients to be proud of, such as Hattiesburg Clinic,
The University of Southern Mississippi, South Mississippi Rural Health, BanCorpSouth, M & M Publishing
("Here's Hattiesburg" magazine) and Lyle Equipment (Komatsu). In addition to the impressive corporate client base,
they serve many thousands of families through their school portraits, high school heroes senior portraits, sports
photography and wedding imaging facets. "We now are photographing the children of the children I began with, even
brides whose Mother's weddings I photographed years ago, this is very special to us!", says Bert.
While no one can argue that longevity in today's marketplace is something to marvel at, the changes in the photography
business during these decades have not left the Kings behind. They embraced digital photography in it's infancy and
thus were able to ride the wave of technology into today's fast paced market. "To be able to put USM game images on
their website immediately after a game is fantastic, we can now bring that level of service to our local high schools,"
says Connie. From in house retouching of images to near fantasy digital products, King Photography has the products,
personnel and level of performance to take your imaging to new heights.
"We treat you royally" has been not only the slogan of King Photography, but a mantra to live by. "We treat others just
as we would want to be treated, I realized years ago that by thoughtfully putting myself in my customer's place I could
better realize how to help achieve their expectations and exceed them if possible"...Bert King, 2008.
At King Photography Bert and Connie King are immersed in their life's work. They see it as a blessing to be able to work
with the many and varied people that they do, to share people's love for one another through their photography and to share
God's love with all that they serve.
