Hello, am I Clay Wieland, a Professional Photographer born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I developed a passion for Photography in my High School graphic arts class, where I learned the basic skills of Photography, and continued following my passion during my college years in North Carolina, and upon returning home to Fort Lauderdale, began working in different fields, all related to Photography, ultimately starting my own studio, Clay Wieland Photography in 1989. Today, I am still pursuing my passion for Photography by celebrating over 25 years in the business of Professional Photography. My working knowledge of Corporate event photography has allowed me to work with many premier Corporations and Non Profit Organizations here in South Florida and Nationwide. I have also photographed many Weddings here in South Florida and I am a preferred Vendor for the Historic Bonnet House, Stranahan House and other venues here in Fort Lauderdale. I have studio space in downtown Fort Lauderdale and offer Studio Portrait sessions and Product Photography.
