real world experience  –  doing real stuff

That's the main asset we have... real experience doing real work for real clients.
We don't have a long list of degrees other than an Assoc. of Arts, in actual Art and photography, from waaay back in 1985...  yay for the 80's.

We have however spent 30+ years producing work for real clients through all levels of corporate and ad agency roles. I am most comfortable working in small groups, face to face, which has become email to email or message to message now-a-days I guess.

501 Concepts offers design and photography clients all that real world experience with a casual and relaxed approach to accomplishing your project's goals.  We ask a lot of questions before taking on a new project or client, which we feel allows us to provide you work that performs the needs of the specific project.  You challenge us with projects and we will likely challenge you to sometimes rethink what you actually may need. We've been called Prima-Donna's a time or two, but it really comes down to caring about each project we take on while still knowing that the end result is work that accomplishes the needs of you, the client.

We specialize in the varying aspects of Graphic Design and Image Editing, as well as Event Photography which we approach in a candid journalistic style.


Behind the scenes we're patriotic, online gamers, with more than 20 aquariums between us.

We feel very strongly in how important it is to "give back" and our experiences working with non-profit organizations has motivated us to donate 2,000+ hours of our time over the last 6 years providing photography, design and videography to non-profit organizations we partner with.

We would love to talk with you about how 501 Concepts could help with your next project.
