About Us

Lande Pictures provides photography, retouching and production services to Chicago based advertising agencies, promotional agencies and corporations. Lande Pictures is owned and operated by Michael Lande. Michael is a talented photographer and Photoshop artist. As a child, Michael knew that he wanted be a photographer. It all began when he picked up his first camera, a Polaroid Swinger at age 8. The magic of a picture developing in his hand intrigued Michael to pursue his life long dream. Now Michael no longer uses a Polaroid camera as digital is his preferred medium. Digital has the magical qualities of seeing your photography immediately like working in the darkroom. Still in a dark room, but now on a large 30″ calibrated display.

Michael has developed his retouching skills starting with Photoshop 2.0 and is considered one of the Chicago areas top retouchers for product, people and everything else you can throw at him.
