Doing it all through NPRO guarantees that you end up with a consistent, high-quality, professional "look" without needing to hire out for all your individual needs.
Stephen is a Natchez native who attended college first in Baton Rouge and finished up his degree at Southern Miss in Hattiesburg. Stephen has a Bachelors degree in Fine Art and Philosophy and has studied Photography, Sculpture, Pottery, Design, and other Fine Arts. After college, Stephen decided he wanted to get back to his roots and his family and moved back to Natchez to start NPRO.
Kate grew up in Kentucky and wanted to pursue Graphic Design from a fairly young age. She enjoyed drawing and working on the computer, so graphic design seemed to be the logical course to take. Due to her attitude about learning and never being limited to the computer with your design abilities, she studied as many art fields as she could in College including photography, printmaking, sculpture, drawing, and painting. She obtained her Bachelors in Graphic Communication in 2012 and immediately thereafter became a full time designer for the University of Southern Mississippi. Kate interned with them for a year while in College and her experience helped her obtain the position. While working at the college, Kate gained a lot of knowledge about print design, billboard design, ads, client interaction and more - she even studied with the video team to learn all that she could about video and animation.
Stephen and Kate met in college and became close friends. After working at the Southern Miss for a few years, Kate was ready to try and make it on her own as a freelance designer and Stephen was eager to get out of Hattiesburg. They visited Natchez several times and Kate became fond of the beautiful little town with all it's character and history. They decided that by combining their abilities, they could start a photography and design studio and Natchez seemed like the perfect place to get started. They move to town in November of 2013 and have been working on NPRO Studio ever since.
