What is a Master of Photographic Arts?

In order to achieve this award of "Master of Photographic Arts", one must enter professional competitions on a regular basis and have the prints juried by their peers.

If they are accepted by the jury the photographer is awarded points towards the designation.

Once the photographer reaches 50 print points and 30 service points they are then deemed a Master of Photographic Arts. Service points are acquired by holding office in the photographic association over a period of years, promoting professional photography and upgrading your skills.

Business, Family & Special Themes

Head Shots

Never underestimate the power of a good business portrait. A snapshot on a compact camera taken by a co-worker just doesn’t work. In this age of social media and internet your image is more important than ever. A good business portrait can show trust, confidence and approachability. These are all key factors that people want to see when doing business.

Character Studies

Character studies are portraits that explore the subjects soul. Lighting the subject is paramount to creating the mood and feel of these classic portraits. The results have a timeless quality and epitomizes the character of the subject. Be prepared to take the time to create this work of art.

Pro Tip

Not sure if you need to update your business portrait? The general rule is if you've changed your look, if your website has a new look or if your current portrait is more than two years old, it's time to come see us for a new portrait.

Studio Portraits

Our studio sessions are ideal for up to 10 family members. The goal is to capture a moment in time where your family is enjoying being together and each face has a positive energetic expression. My experience as a portrait photographer for over 40 years will make the session a pleasant experience and will create an image that will last for generations.

Young Families

We love helping young families to celebrate their newborns or toddlers with a beautiful portrait. Some believe that smartphone selfies are good enough, but nothing says "Proud of My Family" more than a professional portrait.

Family portraits are the most important, yet the least likely to be scheduled. Why?

Unlike a wedding, or a new baby, there's no particular compelling time in which it has to be scheduled. So it's easy to put off until later...but more often than not, later never comes, or worse, it comes too late! I can't tell you how many people have expressed their regret for not getting around to it, only to have something happen that makes it impossible to ever capture the family as it existed. Don't let the "I wish I had" and the "I never got around to it" regrets happen to you. Another reason to get that family portrait done is separation. Our families have grown and some members are moving away. They are no longer a few miles from home. So getting together, doesn't happen as often. Who knows when the next opportunity will be to capture everyone together? We can provide a constant presence of your family even if separated by miles. You have to decide that the time is now. But for the rest of your life you will be glad you did.

Diva Girl

Dog Days

We have a love for Dogs and other pets here at Primary Foto Source. In fact, we have been photographing pets for years with great results, because the pet knows we love them. Most pets owners know that taking pictures of their pet can be challenging, mainly because fur doesn't reflect light very well. Our photographers have the expertise to get all the nuances of your pet recorded. We have the patience it requires to settle the friendliest pet down and bring out their personality to record for posterity. A photograph of your pet at different stages can result in a great collection, to be enjoyed for years. Why wait until it's too late.

Our Next Event is TBA

Your Investment: $30 and a bag of dog food which will be donated to the Humane Society. If you choose to order prints from the session we have a special reduced price list from which you can order. Our Dog Days are very popular and always sell out, space is limited, we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
