About Us



When you want the very best...


Creative Images opened in downtown Monterey in 1979 and quickly became the area's most cutting edge portrait studio. Now after 3 decades the studio has become an institution in the area as Monterey's premiere portrait studio. Our studio and gallery are still in their original location at 251 Pearl street in downtown Monterey. We are housed in a historical stone building shared with east village coffee shop [formally Morgan's Coffee] Our beautiful gallery can be viewed from the street any time day or night.


Our success has been achieved by delivering clients consistent and outstanding work. Clients often tell us the only complaint they have is that it was too hard to choose.



Your photographer at Creative Images is Master Photographer Larry Nordwick. Larry brings to your session a terrific sense of humour and a wonderful capacity to create unique & stylish images. Larry's work blends the timeless portrait styles of the past with the fashion trends of today to give clients the best of both worlds.
