Tom Pierson, owner/photographer


Tom Pierson, owner/photographer of Stephenson Photography, has been with Stephenson Photography since his graduation from Lockport High School in 1973. Tom has received numerous awards and degrees in photography throughout his career as a professional photographer. He is well loved and respected in this community.
Tom has served President in many local organizations, including the Lockport Chamber of Commerce, the Associated Professional Photographers of Illinois, and many more. He believes very strongly in giving back to the his community and is regularly giving his services and products to local charitable groups.
Along with Tom, there are 3 Yorkshire Terriers who regularly “work” at the studio. They  are Miya, Mocha, and Scamp. They are well-loved by our clients and would love for you to stop by to visit.
Stephenson Photography has been in business for over 100 years. We originally started in Joliet as Harrington Studios, and in the 1960s we moved to our 927 S. State Street location, where we remained until a devastating fire destroyed our building in November 2010. We are now located at 1106 S. State Street and are working to rebuild our client base. We would love to have you stop by so we can show you our images and help you understand that professional photography is not expensive, it is priceless!
