Photography has always been Paul's greatest passion. He started his career as a photojournalist, and after years of putting his energies into advertising, Paul returned to his roots as a fine art nature photographer. Now he and his wife, Koni, created Acts of Nature®, an innovative imaging company specializing in "interior landscaping." The two make a perfect team thanks to Paul’s artistic eye and Koni's incredible knack for personal customer service.
While his photography interests vary, Paul is especially fond of macro nature photography because of an endless supply of beautiful and changing subjects. "I have gained a newfound appreciation for the little details found just beyond my back door. Vivid colors, intricate designs, delicate softness, the play of light and texture. It's all there for us to enjoy if we only stop and look. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy photographing it."
Koni Schiller was born and raised in Inwood, IA. After completing high school, Koni earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from South Dakota State University with a minor in Public Health Science. With her degree, Koni served as a private cardiac nurse where she assisted in surgery, developed a pacemaker clinic and taught cardiac patients how to resume life after cardiac trauma. Through the years, Koni learned to personalize her care to each and every patient.
Koni went on to be assistant head nurse at the Sioux Falls Surgical Center where she worked with surgeons in ordering equipment for one of the most successful same-day surgery centers in the country. From there, Koni moved into business as director of sales for Business Aviation Services, a fixed-based operator for aviation needs.
Today, Koni is co-owner of Acts of Nature®, conducting the marketing and sales of Paul’s fine art photography. Koni’s strengths in customer service and her business and medical backgrounds give her the insight and knowledge to help customers create the perfect office or home environment.
