Mary DuPrie –  Photographer Stylist Retoucher

University, trade school and on the job training in fine art and interior design.  Custom furniture was my passion for many years and I worked as a furniture, custom kitchen and bathroom designer.  Attending carpentry school to learn how to create custom designs, opening my own studio almost 30 years ago.

Custom painting  furniture led me to eventually pursue custom faux finishing for several years.  A few years were spent pursuing various art forms; set stylist, trained floral designer, holiday decor, gardening, mixed media, mold making, welding…

Traveling to Europe for inspiration during the heyday of my faux finishing life, photographing various patinas and examples.  Using my camera on auto and hoping for the best when I got my film back.  Making a vow to educate myself on how to use everything in manual on my return was the beginning of a new career path, unbeknownst to me.

I love digital and it certainly has made my life as a photographer and the client experience much more enjoyable.


Professionally trained full time professional studio and location photographer servicing the Metro Detroit Michigan area and beyond.  Corporate and Executive photography is just one facet that I cover in the studio and on location.

The studio also offers model/actor head shots, comp cards, portfolios, classic portraiture, glamour and pageant photography.

Michigan lifestyle photography and commercial model photography shoots are also an extension of model photography. Offering Michigan actors head shots, Michigan corporate head shots, Detroit business head shots and executive portraits head shots as an extension to my model photography. The industry now wants hip cool model looking portrait/head shots, so this is right up my alley.
