Jim Crotty


A story that is unique and exciting, for Jim Crotty the corporate path eventually led him to Utah, where he earned a master’s degree in communication in the 1990s before returning to Dayton in 2003. In his role as a marketing manager for a local company, he caught the attention of the executives for his real estate photographs, and he was sent around the country for that firm on photo shoots. That spurred him to create Picture Ohio, LLC, which started as a venture to provide fine art prints to corporate clients. Word about Crotty’s work spread, and he added art dealers and interior decorators to his base of customers.
Crotty is a Communications Instructor at both The College of Modern Design in Kettering and at the University of Dayton, and he presents one-day and weekend-long nature photography workshops at destinations like Cox Arboretum and Hocking Hills. He is also working on his sixth book featuring his nature and landscape photography.
Crotty’s subjects as a photographer are varied. Along with shooting nature and landscape prints, and his work for corporate clients, he also provides portrait photography high school seniors and families as well as real estate, product and architectural images. On assignment, he has been published in USA Today, Smithsonian, National Wildlife, Nature’s Best and Ohio Magazine among other media outlets.
