Brightraven Studios is owned and operated by Scott Bertram. He has worked in the fields of photography, animation, and education for over 18 years in various capacities. In recent years, he served in Dalton, GA as a Professor and program lead for the Digital Design program at Dalton State College. Since returning to Michigan, he has also worked as an adjunct professor at Jackson College and Spring Arbor University. He hold a BA in Art from Siena Heights University, and an MFA in Animation from the Savannah College of Art & Design. He has been using Photoshop since before it had a version number, and really likes to talk about himself in the third person!

But in all seriousness, I am passionate about creating worlds, and telling stories that can accurately communicate and convey complex situations and ideas in interesting, and often entertaining ways. This can take many forms, including visual art, animation, video production, interactive games, and professional photography. I also enjoy building relationships with those outside of the arts. Entering into these collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects allows me to learn something about a range of topics that I wouldn’t normally encounter while making a valuable contribution and serving the community.

So whether you need a photographer for your wedding, senior portraits, or an animation to visualize a legal case, new home construction project, or product idea, Brightraven Studios can make it happen! So give us a call, or contact us via email to set an appointment. It would be an honor to serve you!
