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! Additionally we have a projected background system which allows us to photograph you in a field of summer flowers, even in the middle of January! Watch for our Google 360 tour to be added here soon.
Shine Photo has TWO 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! We’ll be shooting mini sessions, including special Limited Editions for children on a regular basis. In addition, we’ll be offering Passport photos and Child Safety Cards (photo & fingerprint) on fun designs. Every week we will offer a different promotion! Check our FACEBOOK page tab for a schedule and money saving coupons. A portion of every market session fee is set aside for charity.
At Shine Photo, we are happy to travel. Many families and high school seniors request that their sessions take place in meaningful locations locally. We offer location sessions at no additional charge to our regular session fees. (Some exceptions may apply.) 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 Photo Lounge set up. An upscale little photo studio, decorated to match your event is brought to your location for participant photos. We also provide uniformed staff and volunteers to make sure everyone in the Lounge has a great time. A portion of each portrait fee is set aside for charity. Images are available for purchase in a secure online album within one week of the event. We offer high quality images at very reasonable prices, as well as wall art framed images and canvases and specialty and novelty items suited to each event.
