DIANE VERHAGEN

Account Manager
since March 2021

She might be new to Image Studios, but Diane is no newcomer to the industry. In fact, she’s spent the last 25 years working in advertising. Today, Diane serves as an integral part of our team as our Account Executive.

The past few months, Diane has been busy getting to know our existing clients and building new relationships with potential clients. She says the best part about her work is seeing projects go through the full production process. From the early stages of planning, to collaborating with the production team, and finally seeing the end result in print, digital, commercials, events, etc… it’s rewarding to help businesses bring their visions to life with the use of photography, video, and CGI.

When Diane isn’t at the office tending to our clients, you can find her somewhere outdoors: walking, doing yard work, kayaking, snow shoeing, playing volleyball, and shooting some photography of her own. She enjoys spending time with her husband Troy and their two sons, Trevor and Kyle.

Fun fact: Diane is the youngest of eleven siblings. She grew up with her eight older brothers and two older sisters in Wrightstown, WI.

BRANDON DZIAKEWICH

Senior Producer
since April 2021

Many of you are already quite familiar with this new (again) employee! That’s because Brandon Dziakewich previously worked for us as a Producer for 10 years. After a short hiatus, he is back at Image and we couldn’t be happier to have him on our team again.

Brandon spends his days as our Senior Producer for both photography and video productions, while also managing our video team. With great attention to detail, he dominates at the planning and logistical side of the production process. To Brandon, there’s nothing more fulfilling than wrapping up a project that everyone is proud of.

Born and raised in Alberta, Canada, Brandon graduated from Southern Alberta Institute of Technology with a degree in Film & Video Production. After meeting his wife while in London, England, they moved back to her hometown of Green Bay, WI. Today, they raise their three children there.

Outside of his time at the studio, Brandon enjoys traveling, biking, curling, skiing, and playing cribbage. The Dziakewich Family also recently added a new member to the family: Archie, a miniature golden doodle with endless energy and the kindest soul.

RACHEL HOWELL

Video Editor
since August 2021

Help us welcome our newest video editor, Rachel Howell, to Image Studios AND to the great state of Wisconsin! Rachel made the move to Appleton from Huntsville, AL where she was working as an editor for a multimedia company and as the lead weekend editor for a Huntsville news station.

Rachel brings a wealth of talent to our video editing team and has quickly become a valued asset. She says she’s enjoying learning from her coworkers and further sharpening her editing skills.

With a father in the military, Rachel grew up all over the country – Tennessee, Hawaii, Illinois, Virginia, and Florida – before settling in Alabama. She studied at Auburn University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Media. She also spent time studying abroad at Griffith College in Dublin, Ireland.

Rachel enjoys doing yoga, calligraphy, and painting, as well as spending time with her two calico cats, Athena and Iris.

JAKE ZINSLI

Photography Assistant & Video Grip
since August 2021

One more face that’s new to the crew… Meet Jake Zinsli! Jake joined our Image Studios team as a Photography Assistant and Video Grip in August 2021.

Jake has a big job here at the studio assisting our team of Photographers and Videographers. When the sun comes up, he’s already busy at work, setting up whichever shoots are on the schedule. He manages, organizes, and maintains all our gear throughout the day. And when we call it a wrap, it’s Jake who disassembles everything.

After graduating from UW-Stout with a degree in Entertainment Design (specializing in sequential visual storytelling), Jake moved back to the Fox Cities area to be closer to his family in Oshkosh, WI. When he’s not at the studio, Jake enjoys watching movies, reading, and drawing comics. You might also find him hiking or camping with his wife, Danni, and their dog, Teddy.
