Quality Photos, Quality People

F8 Photos is first a portfolio site for professional photographer, Raymond W. Ninness. Here you’ll find a showcase featuring samples of his best photographic work. Second, you’ll find the F8 Photoblog, which provides a glimpse at his day to day photography. On this site you will also encounter a few images from his wife, Mary E. Prescott-Ninness. They work both independently and as a team of two artists in the production of new images. Together, they represent over 70 years of experience in multiple artistic disciplines.

Our Services

Event Photography

Choosing the right photographer for your special event ensures that your memories are preserved for a lifetime. Ray loves covering sporting events, parties, theater shows, graduations, weddings and other religious gatherings, and conducts his work in a professional, unobtrusive manner with the skill and eye of an artist. All event coverage packages include digital files of all pictures, and proof booklets and deluxe finished print albums are also available.

Photo Licensing

F8 Photos has an image catalog with decades worth of photography, ranging from Michigan-area Stock Car and Bultaco motorcycle races of the 1960's to quiet macro-focus nature still lifes, and from pastoral New England scenics to all-night festivals in mountainous Spain.
