About Bruce Lovelace

Are you really curious about Bruce Lovelace, The Traveling Photographer?  

Stuff That Might Matter to You

I like to provide my clients with a great portrait experience in a familiar relaxed environment.

That usually is their own home, their yard or at another one of their favorite spots.  

My clients like to get me on the phone when they call, not an assistant.

I do all of my own photo editing and retouching. 

I know it's time consuming and that a lot of photographers outsource those tasks.  

I just like to make sure my customers get a great product along with a great experience.

History of My Photography Experiences

I've been a photographer, at least at some level,  since 1970 when I did my first photo shoot.  It was my fourth grade trip to the zoo.  

I was intrigued by the ability to see the world around me and capture least a part of that with my photos.  I thank my father for inspiring me.

He set me up with my first black and white darkroom at home. I first printed negatives from my father's childhood and together we transformed a basement bathroom  into a fully equipped color darkroom.  

We learned a lot together about the frustrations of making color prints.

I never imagined at that time that I'd be interested in becoming a pro shooter for a living and enjoy photographing people.

I worked for 9 years with a baby and children photography company until 1992.

The Traveling Photographer officially opened in 1993.

Areas That The Traveling Photographer Serves

The majority of my location photography is done in south Jersey, within 30 miles of Pitman, NJ. I do cross the river occasionally and take portraits in the Philadelphia, PA area.

The Traveling Photographer also heads "down the shore" for beach photography on Long beach Island, Brigantine, Ocean City, Ventnor, Margate, Sea Isle City, Strathmere, The Wildwoods, Cape May, and Stone Harbor.

Occasionally I head north on the NJ turnpike, and take location portraits in Central and North Jersey.

When I'm not creating portraits, I like hiking or running in the woods,  playing tennis, coaching little people in soccer, or taking nature photographs .

Thank you so much for another wonderful sitting. The photos of Alexis are absolutely beautiful. You went above and beyond the call of duty on the Christmas card.

Just when we think we won't top the previous year you make it happen. Even after 16 years of your lovely photos you still never cease to amaze us with your talents.

Thank you, thank you, thank you,
The Kitchmire Family"


The pictures are wonderful. You captured all that I wanted and then some!! Bill and I looked them over again and again last night.

Such a nice memory, and at the end of the day that is what is important to have! Yes, an online gallery would be great!

Thanks again for everything.

Bill and Twila."
