Photographic services are available from Visual Media Services on an appointment basis by calling or requesting in person your photographic needs.
All requests are entered into a data base and assigned a job number.
Each assignment is discussed by office staff for best approach and optimum results.
Input from you on approach and desired results is always welcome and accepted.
Both studio and location shooting are available.
Because of the ease of control of our studio environment we encourage customers to have as much photography work done in the studio as possible.
Our staff can provide any format of photo service from 35mm to 8x10 inch. For best results please allow sufficient lead time to complete the job.
Visual Media Services now offers you the chance to search our photo database or order photos via our Photographic Services Web Form.
