Our Team

Dennis Walker

Dennis is the creator of Photo Mechanic and Chief Bit Wrangler / Photo Nerd. He doesn't take photos unless it is worth it, but admits this is really either by convenience or purely an aesthetic judgement on his part.

Katie Werremeyer

COO Katie Werremeyer has worked at Camera Bits for over a decade. In the past, she sang professionally. Today she wrangles a toddler and thinks 9pm is late. She holds an MBA from University of Oregon and a BFA from Columbia College Chicago.

Kirk Baker

Bob Russell

Support Manager Bob Russell was the first Support employee, helping craft the department into the benchmark it is today. When he's not creating solutions to complex workflows, he's refurbishing the historic Camera Bits main office building.

Jamie Brown

Jamie Brown is the Camera Bits Sales Manager. She enjoys travel, family time, gardening, and reading. During time away from the office, she likes road trips, big cities, and warm beaches.

Mick Orlosky

Katy Zukas

Amy Bowers

Amy Bowers is the Customer Service Lead. In her not-at-work time, Amy is an avid photographer, singer, and just a little bit of a crafty goddess. She's most often seen around town (or at the dog park!) accompanied by her goldendoodle Kodak.

John Keel

When he's not playing board games or playing ukuleles, John loves taking photos and videos, and has for a few decades now. His background helps him on the Support Team because he's been there and knows how photographers think and work.

Patrick Wilson

Patrick is widely known as the fastest phone jockey in the west. When not working on the Support Team, he restores antique yachts, regales listeners with stories in a mid-Atlantic accent, and makes fun of his beloved dogs.

Andrew Howard

Andrew is a Support Team member and has a 75lb. pit bull named Tater and a 2lb. rabbit named Beans. He tries to never do the same hike twice and enjoys cycling, photography, and video games… maybe his next hobby will be less expensive.
