It's the reason we got into this business and reason we remain passionate about it.

Located in Bloomington, IL, the JMC legacy began when over 47 years ago our parents Jim and Mary Charback began creating slides and processing slide film in our living room as an offshoot of Jim's position with the Illinois Farm Bureau photo lab. As the need for our services grew, so did our business.

In 1985, the years of hard work and perseverance paid off and we were able to make JMC Productions our full-time business. Commitment to our family, our business and our customer's fueled continued growth and, in 1989 JMC became a true family business when we moved into a new building and the Charback daughters, Ann and Cathy came on board full time.

Over the past 2 decades, we have seen many changes in the photography and photo business and have responded to these changes by allowing JMC to evolve. In 2001 JMC Productions entered the digital arena and became JMC Photo & Digital Services. JMC continually strives to respond to advances in technology and expand our capabilities. We have introduced a varied number of ways to use images that have been created with both digital cameras and mobile devices.

Through all of the changes, additions and expansions, we remain devoted to the fundamental philosophy that Jim Charback knew would sustain our business and keep our customers coming back, continued superior quality of service and product.
