Ballard’s Artwork Framing, located in Echo Park, offers street parking in front and in a nearby parking lot south of Sunset, which helps immensely in this traffic-plagued part of town. Inside, the flow is much more slowed down; framing photography or art amplifies what the piece is conveying through presentation, and Ballard’s respects that process and prides themselves on developing that understanding, as well as creating long term relationships with their clients. To ensure quality, they only use archival mats and foam board, and UV protected glass. Their main supplier, Raven & Lily, has made sustainability a promise since 1991. Ballard’s is widely considered to be one of Los Angeles best frame shops, for their service, quality and range of standard and themed frames.
Allan Jeffries Framing's experienced staff handcrafts custom framing treatments for treasured collectibles, letting you choose from more than 1,000 custom frame samples. The knowledgeable staffers guide patrons in selecting the right supplies for each piece, creatively framing works of art, diplomas, photographs, or million-dollar bills. To protect your treasures, the staff can outfit them with archival museum-quality mats and UV-protected nonglare glass or plexiglass.
The published fashion photographer behind On Location Group began developing film more than 20 years ago. He's changed with the times, though, mastering digital photography and creating his own unique style using a combination of natural sunlight and a high-end digital studio flash system. He can often be found snapping breathtaking, magazine-quality shots of models on LA rooftops or shooting stills for Hollywood movie posters, such as 2013's The Love Section. He prides himself on making clients look their best, and to achieve this goal, he maintains a network of professional stylists and hair and makeup artists.
