Welcome to Shine Photo

Think of this page as an alternative menu to our Services. Each type of service has it’s own related page, and can also be accessed via the main navigational menu.  In fact, this page is still under construction, so using the main menu at the top of the page is a better choice.

We’ll be adding our Studio Welcome Guide below in the near future, so check back again soon!

Company Mission & Philosophy

Mission: Shine Photo is an imaginative, full service photography studio aimed at 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, annual profitability and maintaining a sense of humor while providing an extraordinary product.

Philosophy:  We believe that heirloom products begin with clean, images with strong emotional impact. These images can then be enhanced  and combined to create imaginative art that brings out the ‘you’ as you dream yourself to be, both now and in the future. We want our subject to truly ‘shine,’  and our products to be the art that you’ll be proud to hand down to future generations.

Shine Locations

We have three locations to serve you. Our studio is located in the Old Crawford Street School in an up-cycled classroom. It’s bright, warm and private and has all the comforts of home. We have change rooms, salon stations, a baby change station, kitchenette and a couture closet full of props & costumes. The comforts are rounded out with top of the line studio lighting and gear, multiple cloth, paper and solid backgrounds and a full background projection system.

We also have a satellite booth location at the Thunder Bay Country Market, located on the second floor in the Dove Building on the CLE grounds.  You’ll find us upstairs there every Saturday from 8 am – 1 pm and on Wednesdays from 3:30 -6:30 between May  24th and December 24th. Here we tackle mini and high volume sessions such as mini sessions for Children, product photography and sports minis. Check our Facebook page or Events Calendar for weekly offerings. Or, sign up for our monthly NEWSLETTER to keep up with what’s happening!a

Our third location is on our 16 acre farm in Slate River Valley.  A short 5 minute drive from White Water Golf Course lands you in the heart of this breath-taking country side.  Have your portraits done in flowing fields, our tree-farm forest, in the loft or with our rugged out buildings and rustic fences. Need some animals to photo-bomb your shoot? We’ve got them too!


Shine Photo uses the largest professional lab in the United States for much of our  product processing. The advantage of this is that we can offer exceptional products, not available in Canada, and the absolute highest quality in print at an excellent price point. We also have the capability to do printing in house using our 44 inch wide Canon 4000 printer. Products include:

  • Luxury Lustre Prints,
  • Luxury Framed Prints
  • Gallery Canvas Wraps in matte or metallic finish
  • Swarovski  Jewel encrusted Canvas Wraps
  • Metal Prints
  • Acrylic Wall Art
  • Volume Prints & Yearbooks
  • Novelty Items such as keychains and Christmas Ornaments
  • And More!

Our Studio Welcome Guide Magazine will occupy this space soon.
