Iluminero: What’s in a name?

“Con questa candela illuminerò il tuo cammino nelle tenebre.”

Translation: With this candle, I will light your way in darkness.


The word “illuminero” is the future tense of “to enlighten” or “to light” in Italian. We loved the word for a myriad of reasons. For one, light is the language of photography–the backbone of this company. “Photography” comes from the latin pharse that means to paint with light. Plus it didn’t hurt that the dot-com was available.  Anybody who has searched for a good domain name knows the pain.

Beyond that, “illuminero” speaks to our goal mission as a company. We try to shine a light on businesses (particularly small businesses), so that their products or services can be seen by the very people who are seeking them.

We can do this a few different ways.  Perhaps you create a great product. If that is the case, then we can provide photography to create an awesome new portfolio for you to showcase. Or maybe you sell yourself as a trusted businessman or woman. We can make high-end head shots or environmental portraits of you and/or your staff.

Our web design services also serve to illuminate our clients. We strive to create sites that are search-engine-friendly, visually pleasing, and responsive to mobile devices. We love big, clean web designs that are modern and functional.

If you have a product or a service that worthy of your customers, we believe it should be showcased better than just with a Facebook page or an out-of-date web site and iPhone photos.

At Illuminero, we help make your business glow!
