Rich Covert is a professional photographer and owner of Covert Family Photography with the main studio in Bridgman, Michigan, 49106.

Photography began for me in kindergarten, wouldn't you know it? The teacher was making plans for our Easter pageant. She asked for volunteers for the different roles. When it came to the role of the photographer, no one raised their hand and everyone was silent. After a few moments, I raised my hand and said, "I'll do it." My Mom was a very good amateur photographer. She gave me "the eye". Thanks Mom! My dad used to drive the family down to the beach to watch the sunset over Lake Michigan. He gave me the sense of timing and location. Thanks Dad!

You will see many recent photographs of Michigan and California in my portfolio. Now accepting reservations for family and wedding photography in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Call to make an appointment.

Jake Zboril has joined our photographic family and you can see many of his pieces here on the site on his page. You can visit Jake and I most Saturdays and Sundays at Skips Open-Air European Farmers Market from May through October. It is located on Red Arrow Highway, three miles north of New Buffalo, Michigan. Skips also has a terrific restaurant and some of my work is on display in the lobby and dinning rooms. It's worth the drive.
