More about Chris -- the graphic designer and photographer for Artistic Action
Chris Rozema Templates Unlimited by ArtisticAction.com

I'm Chris Rozema Mom to 4 and Nana to 3. Would rather be outside taking photos but it is winter time in Michigan.

Began as a self-taught graphic artist in the early 2000's, 1st graphics software was Ulead Photoimpact and then moved to Adobe Photoshop.   Started getting into working with sports photographers around the country to create custom posters using their photos and my graphics (templates).   They paid me $50 to $75 to create, depending on size and # of images and would sell the posters for $150 up to $300.      See early work using templates I designed then added their photos  for Baseball   and for Soccer 

At the same time started working with a local photographer using her photos and my graphics to create posters for our kids' high school (Rockford).   Thought I could get better photos, so put my money where my mouth is, and starting taking the photos to create the 1000s of posters over the years. 

My motto was to never create/sell anything that I would not be proud to hang on my own wall!  Worked hard to make sure that Templates Unlimited by ArtisticAction.com are truly unlimited -- in colors, text, adding any layers to customize/personalize them (i.e. add venue, scoreboard, logo, mascot, schedule, results, etc...), royalty-free, use year after year, many with full background to create any collage, like what I call The Two Three style of poster (named  that because usually I used 2 or 3 feathered photos to create) and The Pride style of poster (named  that because1 would cutout 1 photo to stand out being The Pride and 1 or 3 feathered photos) or can keep it simple and just use the border layer over 1 photo.  Can also use the full background layer (included in many of the templates) to create your own custom border.  That is where the name Templates Unlimited came from.

My hope is that these templates will inspire you to be more creative and help you easily offer exciting and unique products to your clients and special keepsakes for your kids.  A photo is a great start to help you turn action into art!  That is were the name Artistic Action can from.

1st digital camera was a Sony Digital Mavica that I borrowed -- which stored photos on 3.5" floppy disk, moved up to a Canon 10D, then an Olympus E-1, switched back to Canon with a 20D, then the Mark II, Mark III and currently the 1DX

 
Some of my 1st creations for Rockford, my home town
Rockford Rams Basketball State Champions 2003 poster created by Chris Rozema Kyle Rozema Joe Staley Homecoming Rockford Rams football
Here is the 1st State Championship poster I created using the Sony @ MSU's Beslin Center from the nose bleed seats. A couple of posters I created - my son Kyle (still hanging on my livingroom wall) and Joe Staley (currently #74 for the San Francisco 49ers) using one of my 1st designs now called All Action poster kit  FYI the name used on most of the templates is Jim Stanley based on Joe Staley.  And I was using East Side Wildcats (as team and mascot) years before High School Musical  ; ) Created this panoramic for Rockford Rams homecoming in 2003
