Since January 2012, Valerie Bogle has been a photographer on a mission to help women and business people alike flourish in who they are and in their businesses. Prior to founding Valerie Bogle Photography, she worked as an Art Director & Designer with one of the largest ad agencies in the SE where she art directed photo shoots for clients including Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites, Courtyard, Royal Caribbean, Publix and more.
Valerie Bogle Photography specializes in Magazine Style Portrait Photography, as well as documentary style Day in the Life shoots. She is passionate about helping clients relax and come alive in front of the camera. Valerie is the photographer that reminds girls of all ages how beautiful they are and helps business people get noticed and identify their personal brands.
Valerie began her photography career by offering on-location shoots only, ie. High School Senior, Families, Day in the Life, etc..but when she decided to venture into Glamour and Beauty, and Tasteful Boudoir, she realized the need for a studio. She just recently opened her 3rd studio in Downtown St. Pete, and loves the area. “St. Pete is awesome, and only getting better. Not to mention i live her, so it’s the perfect place for me”, she stated when asked why she chose St. Petersburg.
When asked what sets her apart from her competitors, Bogle said, “I’ve spent years working with very large clients with sizable budgets to get the best images possible. In addition, I spent many years modeling, so I’ve been all around the camera and can bring my experience shooting and modeling for top level clients to the local level at far more attainable fees.”
