Our Company Mission
The Shine Philosophy
Community Matters

Our Thunder Bay studio is located in an up-cycled classroom in the Old Crawford Street School, located at the corner of West Francis and Crawford Ave in Thunder Bay. At Shine Photo’s studio you’ll find change rooms, salon stations and all the ‘little’ things you need to make your Shine Photo session great. Refreshments are also provided and it’s our goal to make you completely comfortable from the moment as you arrive. We have an extensive prop and costume closet, loaded with vintage and brand new items. We’re always scouting for new props so that your images will stay fresh!

Shine Photo has several local locations to serve you. Now you can also join us on Saturday mornings between 8 am and 1 pm at the Thunder Bay Country Market located in the Dove Building on the CLE grounds. Here we bring you a fresh new approach to photography conducting mini sessions, including special Limited Editions for children on an intermittent basis. Check our FACEBOOK page tab for an update on scheduled events at the market. A portion of  many of our market session fees are set aside for charity. Watch for Fotos for Food events in October and December. The market is also where all our high volume portraits can be picked up during market hours.  Stop in for your photos a coffee and maybe take home and artisan pie!

At Shine Photo, we are happy to travel. Many families and high school seniors request that their sessions take place in meaningful locations locally.  Please feel free to call us to discuss location options. We also travel to clubs, sports studios and groups to create individual photos, team photos, albums, yearbooks and specialty products such as bag tags, bookmarks and trading cards. Having an event? Ask about our Print on Location set up.   Finally we have 16 acres of beautifully groomed pastures in Slate River to suit almost every outdoor photo need. Areas on our farm include old fences, barn board buildings, a barn,  a loft, a tire swing, birch tree stands, tall grasses, old trees, winding paths, breezy fields and tree farm- like forests. The perfect all-in-one location for your next family photo  or grad shoot!
