Mr. Duke started his self-named photography business more than 60 years ago, but that doesn’t mean his company’s services are old-timey. One of the team’s specialties is photo restoration, where ultramodern computer software helps them produce crystal-clear images from scraped, creased, or faded originals. Of course, the primary objective of the business is to help families create new memories, which they do with Duke Photography’s signature portrait sessions held at studios in Phoenix or Tempe. At the Phoenix location, photographers work both inside the studio and out, as they’ve cultivated a garden adjacent to the studio that serves a lush backdrop for shoots. The Tempe studio’s outdoor space is surrounded by lakes that provide a tranquil setting to capture snapshots of families. Sessions are open for any occasion, though the team at Duke Photography specializes in portraiture for families, businesses, weddings, high-school seniors, and sports teams.
