Oaken Sage Photography is a Milwaukee, Wisconsin based photo service operated by photographer, Joseph Mlodik.
I'm a self-taught photographer whose dabbled in the art for several years, although the business side of it didn't take off until early 2013 when Kholdstare Design was founded. In early 2015 I separated my design work from my photography work and thus, Oaken Sage was born.
Over these past few years I've worked with various local bands and models and am also known for taking photos of couples, children, animals, cemeteries, onstage performers and nature landscapes. Naturally, I'm looking to continue forward with these while adding more to my repertoire.
I also have experience with graphic design and photo editing. Photo touch-up and adjustment services are also available.
Although some of my work may seem conventional, I strive to capture genuine atmosphere and special moments. I like to be artsy and sometimes even a little odd. It's all about capturing that perfect expression on someones face, or being at the right angle, and choosing the perfect time of the day to shoot.
Photo Services Offered
Pricing I generally charge a flat rate of a $100 a photo shoot. This price includes; my travel time to the shoot (i.e. time on the road/gasoline), the photo shoot itself (no more than an hour), time spent editing the photos and eventually burning them to a DVD-R for the customer (they can be sent through the internet, as well). I'm also always pleased to meet with a customer before a shoot or discuss it on the phone. If greater travel times are in order (more than 15 miles) or if the shoot is expected to go longer than an hour then prices would slightly vary.
