Jimmy Fishbein

Owner

Jimmy Fishbein, owner of LakeShore Photography and Video, has been creating images for over 20 years. His passion for photography started in his first year of college. When he picked up a camera for the first time, the magic of creating the image is what first drew Jimmy to the art of photography. It was at that point that he decided that this was going to be his career.

Jimmy left the University of Cincinnati for Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. During his tenure at Brooks, he learned the true fundamentals, made lifelong friends, and gained the experience and knowledge to take him to his next journey in the photography field. Upon graduating from Brooks, Jimmy moved to New York City to take his photography to the next level. It was here that his learning curve expanded greatly which enabled him to work with some of the best and most well-known photographers and their clients in New York.

Today, Jimmy is currently living in the West Loop of Chicago and married to his beautiful wife, Christine, where they enjoy taking their puppy to the dog park and spending their summers in upper Michigan. Jimmy started LakeShore Photography and Video based on wanting to provide people with photography that captures the essence and all of the details of their special day. Jimmy wants to provide the same high level of service in creating professional photography for every wedding he captures as if it were his own.
