Shine Photo is an imaginative, full service photography studio offering high-style, moderately priced, and exceptionally creative images. We view ourselves as partners with our customers, our employees, our community and our environment. We aim to become a nationally recognized brand name, capitalizing on the visual nature of the human experience. Our goal is moderate growth and annual profitability through the offering of an exceptional product.
We believe that timeless photo art begins with a clean image ripe with strong emotional impact. Such images stand the test of time on their own without any additional enhancements. As Photoshop professionals however, we may then edit, enhance and combine these images to create imaginative art that brings out the ‘you’ as you dream yourself to be, both now and in the future. Wall art created in this manner will also stand the test of time, allows the subject to truly ‘shine’ and creates an heirloom product that you’ll be proud to hand down to future generations.
Shine Photo is built on a business model where philanthropy, embedded in social innovation, is at the heart of our daily activities. What is social innovation? It is any idea that can be put into practice for the public good. With society facing unprecedented economic, environmental, social and cultural challenges, these ideas are the key to turning challenges into opportunities that benefit our community. We believe that through the partnering of nonprofits, for-profits, and the public at large, the framework is created for the implementation of these ideas. How do we put it into practice? Our Photo Lounge Booths, available for parties and events, collects money for charities, or food for local food banks as a ‘fee’ for the images. Customers get photos for their donation, we sell additional prints at a profit and the charity benefits from the donation. Everyone wins. This is just one example of the many ways that socially innovative philanthropy is woven into the very fiber of our business fabric. Got a socially innovative idea? We’d love to hear it!
