Malinda Hartong has not received any gifts yet
For Glenn Hartong & I - well, it was love at first lens. Seriously. He had (& still has) amazing lenses. But it was the guy behind the viewfinder that I really fell in love with. His generous spirit and amazing talent are only equalled by his empathy toward his fellow man.
He's worked at the Cincinnati Enquirer for over 20 years. I freelanced for 10 years before becoming a full-time photojournalist for 4 years on staff, and now back to freelancing. I'm also having a BLAST sharing my photography passion with teaching classes - groups and 1-1 lessons - photography, photoshop, iPad & more with my own company - Hartong Digital Media llc.
We both love to capture amazing moments and tell great stories of everyday people. It's really the best part of being a photojournalist.
So Help Portrait is a great fit for us, and especially since starting ChiliDog Pictures video productions with Emmy-award winning video editor and longtime friend Stacy Doose. The 3 of us are blessed to tell amazing stories at Cincinnati Childrens Medical Hospital and Dragonfly Foundation just to name 2.
We look forward to participating, sharing our passions and supporting our amazing community of Cincinnati Ohio.
