Photographer and graphic designer Michael Baumann founded his New York studio 'Jano Group' in the mid 1980's after assisting renowned art director and photographer Henry Wolf for many years. Baumann collaborated with Mr. Wolf on many award winning and innovative ad campaigns for top agencies and clients of that time.

Baumann then set up the first in-house fashion photography studio for A & S department stores (now part of Macy’s) where he photographed all advertising campaigns and fashion catalogs.

Michael preferred to work under his own direction and started his small graphic design and advertising studio - Jano Group Creative Services & Photography - designing, photographing and producing ads and promotion material for various clients.

Michael Baumann is now located in Dobbs Ferry, New York. His services include concept development, graphic design, photography, print ad layouts/production and the creation of promotion material. We provide in-studio and on-location photography - from portraits to commercial photo shoots to street and landscape photography.

Michael closely collaborates with each client in the creative process and maximizes each project’s requirements within any given budget. Michael works his jobs from original concept through design and layout, photography and production to the finished printed material and/or ad placements at very competitive prices.
