About Us

Owners Michael A & Deb Wong

In business since 1980, we do portrait, product, and business needs photography. We have photographed for restaurants, realtors, book authors, actors, families, events, magazines and business-related photos for groups and individuals.  We can do head shot portraits in our gallery's studio, or environmental shots. We can place you  in different locations, via Photoshop, if needed (please tell us ahead of time if that is what you want).  Each portrait session includes touch-up of two images, if you wish.


  • Portraits:   We photograph individual, couples, groups and family portraits (studio and  environmental). This may also include the "official" photos for books, promotional materials, websites, professions, and other uses. (NOTE: We no longer take American passport photos).  
  • Events:   We will photograph your event, which could include ribbon-cuttings,  award ceremonies, reunion parties, book signings, corporate gatherings  and other events. 
  • Products: Studio or on-location photos of products, food dishes or interiors/exteriors. 
  • Artwork:  Includes photographing and archiving of artwork for reproduction, etc.
