I started my photography business in 2016, after a successful career as a legal marketing professional. Many of the lawyers, consultants, colleagues and coworkers I met during that career are now my photography clients.
Every person who contacts me, whether we’ve known each other for years or are just getting acquainted, is a new experience. I love learning about their goals and their careers. I try hard to make every session fun. The more ideas and input you have, the better.
I have a diverse portfolio and strive to maintain that diversity. My clients trust me. I am confident that I will give them the best image I can. And I continually work to support the community around me.
A few of my favorite things:
—Cuba and all things mid-century.
—Gangster movies and TV shows.
—An eclectic French streaming radio station called FIP that plays extraordinary music.
—Scottie dogs. We just welcomed my fifth Scottie, Sally, to our family.
__Museums, all kinds, any kinds, from art to history to tiny offbeat niche collections.
__My husband, Al Spoler, a well-known wine and food expert. He hosts two shows on our local NPR affiliate.

"My experience with Vickie Gray Images was phenomenal and I highly recommend. The photo shoot was professional, kind, and the photo came out great! "
Al started as a video/film production major at a local community college. After being behind the camera for several semesters he realized that he would rather shoot still photography. Al switched majors in 1988 and never looked back. Starting as a full time commercial photographer’s assistant he eventually made the transition to a full time, self-employed photographer.
Al has photographed everything from portraits, headshots, weddings, pets, product, architecture, documentary journalism and his personal projects. When he’s not photographing you may find Al wandering the streets of Baltimore, always with a camera, meeting people and making conversation with some new friends. “Everyone has a story, and I’m not afraid to start a conversation with someone and ask to shoot their portrait on the spot doing what they do.”
When he’s not wandering you can find him absorbed within a library looking for some obscure photo book, or sitting in quiet park practicing his harmonica skills with whoever dares to listen, always with a camera nearby.
