William K. Gommel, Jr. - Bill




After photographing a wedding for a friend in 1974, I decided to start my own photography business. As I would walk up to the front door of the bride's home, the person greeting me often would call out "The picture man is here." After hearing this a few times, and needing a name for my new business, I decided to be known as The Picture Man. On August 19, 1982, the business was incorporated in the state of Illinois.

In 1986, I was named a Certified Professional Photographer by the Professional Photographers of America. As a CPP I joined the ranks of a select number of photgraphers in the nation having earned this designation.
