New digital photo business should put town on the map
PUBLISHED: 17:00 23 June 2011
A STATE-OF-THE-ART digital photo business has opened in Weston.
Digital Photo Studio in Locking Road hosted a special celebration this week as it welcomed its first visitors through the doors.
Weston MP John Penrose cut the ribbon and said the business ‘should help put Weston firmly on the South West arts map.’
Instead of customers spending thousands on marketing, the Digital Photo Studio, which incorporates The Gallery@, provides a photograph and document conversion service from paper to digital so people can store and share pictures more easily or have them printed in more than one format. Memories can be saved from fading and shared with friends or printed on something special.
Staff scan documents and are working with universities and other organisations on state-of-the-art methods.
They also sell digital photo frames and picture storing and sharing devices.
The Gallery@ is run by a committed team of artists who volunteer to run and care for the space.
It is a contemporary art gallery and the current exhibition will be held until August 6.
Artist John Featherstone with his wife Judi are pictured with Kirsten Hemingway-Arnold and Kevin Thompson.
