I integrated 35 + years of traditional photography and pre-press experience to start Studio Houston in 1999. My first all digital photographic company, was "Image House" that I started in 1992, when being digital was not so cool. I sold “Image House” to Champagne Printing in 1995, when digital was cool. I managed "Image House" for Champagne Printing for four years. Champagne Printing was bought out my Mail Well a large corporation, with many printing companies across the US. The decided they did not want to be in the photography business and make me an offer I could not resist. I bought the equipment and opened the doors of Studio Houston.
I believe the key to my success has been an understanding and commitment that service and quality always come first. I use the Phase One digital backs, Hasselblad and Canon cameras to achieve the highest quality available today. Studio Houston has become a leader in the digital arena.
Studio Houston provides its clients with a total "Turn-Key" solution, saving valuable time and money while structuring a digital approach that more adequately addresses today's production needs.
We produce catalog and print ad work for many local as well as out of state clients. The out of town client's product arrives at our studio with the layout and special notes attached. We digitally photograph the product to the layout and specifications. A soft proof is posted on my FTP site for approval often within minutes after image capture. A phone call or E-Mail is sent, when the client inspects the job, on their calibrated monitor it is as if they were in the studio looking at the studio monitor. Hard proofs are also available upon request.
Approved images are passed on to pre-press. In pre-press, the file is adjusted to the signature of the specified press and then "burned" on to a CD/DVD. The CD/DVD are then shipped Fed Ex, UPS Next Day Air or hand delivered. Our clients love the convenience and time saved.
Our objective is to totally understand our customer's needs and provide superior quality and service while completing each job in a timely manner at a competitive price!
I personally invite you to call Studio Houston for a competitive bid on your next photographic project.
