FastFrame first germinated in Europe before spreading to Japan, Brazil, Australia, and the United States, and guarantees every design for 30 days and the craftsmanship for a lifetime. For over 20 years, FastFrame of Brentwood has upheld that lofty standard, earning a devoted roster of clients, including collectors, interior designers, and film industry personnel through its high-quality custom framing and other services. Their team can crown original works of art and prints with ornate mouldings, store historical artifacts and three-dimensional memorabilia in shadow boxes, or even frame sporting equipment.
FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.
A good headshot can help someone an acting role, modeling job, or even a corporate position. Photo Experts has been creating these photos for more than 20 years. At their studio, photographers set up lights and choose flattering backdrops. They can also retouch photos if necessary, removing blemishes or unsightly third eyes.
Racks of frames in a rainbow of woods, colors, and finishes hang from the walls of Frame 2000 and Frames Galore, ready to be custom-fitted to clients’ treasured images. With skills honed during more than 20 years in business, staffers can shield eclectic items, such as needlework, canvases, art prints, and mirrors, behind glittering glass. Specialized printing equipment can also produce full-size posters, transfer images to canvas, or accentuate a favorite alien-autopsy photo with Andy Warhol–esque pop-art effects.
Like many artists, Dyanne Williams experimented with a variety of mediums before sticking with the one that suited and intrigued her the most: mosaics. At her Beverly Hills studio, she not only constructs works for her own oeuvre, but also leads small, intimate classes of no more than six students. Each pupil is invited to choose a project and work at the pace they're most comfortable with?which makes her courses suitable to all experience levels, including advanced artists and anyone who thinks a mosaic is the French word for "music."
