Who takes the photographs?
Free photographs in support of the volunteer rescue department are donated by Mitchell Photography, a custom portrait studio in Richmond, Kentucky.
Mitchell Photography, formerly Classic Touch Productions, was born as a philanthropic endeavor in which James Mitchell offered his photography services at no charge to encourage donations to local volunteer rescue departments, including a free 10x13 color family portrait to members of the community who compassionately donate to volunteer rescue departments. Those donations are applied to life-saving tools and equipment that serve the community in emergency situations.
With more than 20 years experience in the photography industry, Mr. Mitchell is a proud member of the PPA (Professional Photographers of America), and former member of the KPPA (Kentucky Professional Photographers Association).
Although James Mitchell still dedicates his craft in service of volunteer rescue departments, his photography business has evolved to include high-quality specialty sessions that encompass:
Mitchell Photography Studio originally opened its doors with a grand opening in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 2009 with full support for the Warren County Rescue Department. Eight years later in 2017, James Mitchell and Mitchell Photography relocated to Richmond, Kentucky where he continues his work with Madison County Rescue and Berea Volunteer Fire and Rescue.
In Richmond, Mitchell Photography offers studio and outdoor photography sessions that continue to emanate classic elegance with a modern edge.

How many people can be in my picture?
We welcome families of all shapes and sizes, big and small.
We’ll happily photograph a single subject, but also thoroughly enjoy those generations photographs where grandparents, siblings, children, and grandchildren come together to celebrate family.
People have used their free photo for engagement pictures, maternity, newborn, prom pictures, sports or school uniforms, honorable members of our military in dress, and even for capturing playful expressions such as halloween costumes or ugly Christmas sweaters!
Are the pictures taken indoors or outside?
Promotional photo shoots through the volunteer rescue department are taken indoors. We bring professional equipment to set up a pop-up studio. We use expertly measured lighting, high-quality muslin backdrops, a variety of posing tools, and more than 30 years experience in high-volume promotional portraiture and custom photo shoots.
