Welcome to Jay Samuel Photography... make yourself at home. Discover nostalgic and nature based themes and subjects of photography that preserve old fashion values and traditions while inspiring one for life today and providing motivation for the future! Subjects of this photography have echoes of the past with a real hope for the future. Nostalgic inspired photography portrays rock-solid characteristics of the Heartland as discovered in natural settings, rural areas, small towns, and moderately sized communities of the American Midwest. Nature inspired artistry brings the beauty of the outdoors through your eyes and into your very heart, mind, and soul. All of this photography challenges you to approach life in a positive manner!

It is my heartfelt ambition to provide high quality photography to illuminate, showcase, and exemplify the very best of the American Midwest. It will highlight the nature, scenery, landmarks, people, and traits one associates with and expects to discover in the Midwest. Photography, customer service, and friendliness will more than satisfy client expectations; greatly enriching their lives through the desirable attributes conveyed through the photography. Values of honesty and genuine friendliness guide me to strive for excellence in all that I do with the highest moral conduct in all interactions and business relationships.
