About Me

I’m Alan, the owner, photographer, chief cook and also bottle washer

of Alan Rolette Photography.



I’m old… I feel like I have lived a hundred lifetimes. I’m originally from Ohio, I’m a Navy Veteran, I was a teacher for 16 years, I have worked in finance, I have been in several terrible music bands both singing and playing guitar, I spent a number of years in medicine, I’m a father of 3 human children and 2 fur babies (one of whom is a stalker and the other has an attitude and potential drinking problem), and most proudly the husband of my beautiful wife for the last 32 years.




I am a national and internationally published photographer. I have also been exhibited nationally and internationally. That is the “Art” side of my business. I have even won an award or two. But honestly most of my time and energy is spent servicing my customers and capturing images for their businesses, families, events, and lifetimes.


While I have lived all around the country, I have been in Lakeland for 27 years and have been an independent freelance photographer, with my own business, for the last 9.


It’s fun to own your own business… BUT, it’s way more fun when you have clients to serve and that’s where you come in. Offering high quality photography at a great price means nothing without you. My motto is: “Reasonable and Relaxed Photography”. My prices are reasonable (compare them to any professional) and the atmosphere is relaxed (you can probably tell after reading this). I shoot both in my studio and also on location. I have traveled far and wide in the United States to photograph smiles and events.


When you are in my studio, you are in my home and treated as such. You’re my guest AND my customer and you will leave with a smile on your face and photos that will last your whole life through.


I’m both honored and humbled you are giving my modest business a look (and have gotten this far on the “about me” page) and will work my heart out for you and your photographic happiness
