The Hartongs | Photojournalists

Award-winning Photo + Video
Editorial Portrait

Malinda & Glenn Hartong are photojournalists and editorial photographers with extensive experience in both candid and event photography as well as portraits – from branding and headshots to seniors, models, and gorgeous portraits.
We shoot covers and more for regional and international publications, like the 3 images above for Xavier Nation, Xavier University’s alumni publication. The first photo was created by Malinda, from concept to setup, using 12 actual flashes. Not photoshop. Not what we do day to day, but it was certainly fun to capture for the cover showcasing Xavier’s rising star athlete. We typically keep it simple, but once in a while its fun to go all out!

Genuine Expression is everything

Whether in our studio near Winton Woods or on location, our 1st priority is expression. Having shot news for decades, we know a real smile when we see one, and it makes all the difference! Take your time, cruise through our work, and contact us to schedule your photo shoot. Our upbeat Photo Shoots are fully guided to capture your best angle and also best organic expression.513-245-4100

Attentions to Details: Headshots

Team Headshots On Location are one of Malinda’s favorite shoots! From the executives of a global media company to city council members to nonprofit boards to sales teams, we customize your onsite photo shoot to your style and needs. At one recent shoot, an executive was surprised by our attention to detail – he had never had anyone use blotting papers to reduce shine and take care of his navy jacket with a lint roller before. Contact Malinda for a quote today.
