The Medina Gazette ’s Best of the Best Photographer for 2009 and 2010, photographer Bob Mihalko boasts 25 years of experience capturing the light. Specializing in studio shoots, family photos, and senior portraits, Mihalko’s work runs the gamut from formal to absurd, incorporating such relevant props as musical instruments, sports equipment, and collections of shrunken heads. With a pair of studio shoots, patrons can preen for over-the-mantel posterity before returning another day for a series of shots. Whether an engagement photo or baby’s first portrait, Mihalko sends subjects home with a brace of 11”x14” enlargements perfectly sized for dining-room display or tricking police when you're unlawfully using the car-pool lane.
Contemporary Photography Studio has been serving the Medina community for 40 years, and Mihalko stays on the cutting edge of his craft with regular workshops, continuing education, and extracted confessions from the notable photographers imprisoned in his tree house.
