About Laura and Mike Caplan

When Laura and Mike Caplan are out taking photos together, their cameras are seldom pointing in the same direction. And that’s just how they like it! Each of them brings a different “eye” to every scene. That personal artistic flair is even more noticeable after they’ve applied some “Art Sauce” to their images in the digital darkroom. 

Whatever the differences, it’s their shared love of nature that propels much of their artwork and their decision to plant roots in Door County. In this photographer’s playground, Caplan Studios Vault is the physical expression of their craft and desire to share their work.

Mike Caplan

Chances are Mike Caplan is using a camera right now. That’s because he works on both sides of the lens. Rain or shine, folks in Chicagoland welcome him into their homes each weekday morning to get the weather forecast from their favorite TV meteorologist. That love of science and nature inspired him to capture the world he sees first on film and now digitally. Students at the College of Lake County rely on his technical skill and passion for photography in the classes he teaches. Portrait and business clients are always smiling thanks to his engaging enthusiasm during their sessions as well as the final images. Here at the Caplan Studios Vault, Mike showcases artistic creations that go beyond the “literal” photograph.

Laura Caplan

Yes she’s beautiful. But she’s much more than just another pretty face! Laura Caplan is just as comfortable wearing a tool belt as she is in a fancy gown. When you come from a family of iron workers, being handy around the house comes with the territory. In high school she could’ve been voted most likely to host her own home repair show. Her skills are not limited to power tools though. She’s developed a successful web design and social media management business with a growing list of clients in Door County as well as Chicagoland. Then there’s her amazing flair for creative photographic art. Her final images look absolutely nothing like what the camera saw and that’s just how she likes it.
