About Us

YOUR STORY, OUR LENS

Yvonne Charneskey, President and Executive Producer for VonHenry Media, Inc., trained in fine art at Purdue University at Ft. Wayne, IN, and pursued photography at St. Francis College. She brought her creative flair to the fields of finance and hospitality, and later worked as a producer for talk radio. Despite her business success, her heart’s desire was to produce documentary films, films that would breathe life into the still photographs that preserved the images that fired her imagination. A former model and a creative artist in several visual media, Yvonne brings unique insights that turn even standard commercial projects into unexpected imagery. “My life and work philosophy is best expressed by a quote from Rumi,” says Yvonne. “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.”

 

Hank Charneskey, CEO and Executive Producer for VonHenry Media, Inc., brings a strong business/retail background to support the visual artistry that defines each VonHenry production. Hank attended Illinois State University, studying Business Administration.  Early work as a musician and audio engineer drew him to videography, and he recorded Colorado’s horse show circuits during the summer months, and snow skiers on the slopes in winter. It wasn’t until Hank and Yvonne were married that the two realized their artistic interests converged in the television studio. “We got our impetus to ‘go pro’ when we took a class in studio production,” Hank explains. “We produced several television shows and, after friends in the video production business saw our results, they urged us to start our own company. We’re glad we took that advice!”
