Property Information


Located in it's own building, which has been completely remodeled to serve as a professional studio. This controlled setting provides a great experience for students and parents on a consistent basis. Outfitted with professional lighting complete with booms and scaffold bars. Several vignettes/settings with a variety of backdrops and props. And space dedicated to production, complete with computer systems and a wide variety of product packages, frames and displays.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The business has an excellent reputation within the local market, working with many of the top schools. This reputation is confirmed by the high customer ratings and reviews online. Leveraging that reputation, each additional school contract represents hundreds of additional customers. In addition to school photography, the relationship with thousands of families could be expanded into more holiday and family portraits. Plus the other areas of photography such as weddings, business photos, etc.


There is a fair amount of competition in this market. This business thrives due to a reputation for providing an enjoyable experience and a quality product. Despite everyone carrying a camera on their phone daily, professional school photos for every student, especially seniors, continue to be the norm. Having a theater-quality studio establishes this operation as more professional than just a photographer who sets up at the school, herding students through for a quick picture.
