In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like, regardless of slugging percentage. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon: for $20 you get $50 worth of photofinishing lab services from Lakeside Camera Photoworks at both of their locations, in Metairie and Mandeville. This deal is valid for in-store purchases only, and you can only use one Groupon per visit.
Named 2009 Photofinisher of the Year by Photo Industry Reporter, Lakeside Camera Photoworks offers photographic and video services in a boutique environment. This deal is good for photofinishing services ranging from commemorative mugs ($18) to wrapped canvas prints ($89–$346). Skyping empty nesters can turn a high school grad portrait into a fun mouse pad ($17), or create a custom photo book ($14–$312) filled with naked baby pictures, to show to each and every one of junior’s new college girlfriends. Come in and watch a stack of family photos magically transform into T-shirts ($17), calendars ($18–$29), and canvas totes ($26). All products are created in-house, which ensures timely service, and both shops are filled with attentive staff members to help realize your photos' full potential. Unlike many mega photo conglomerates, which employ cold-blooded reptilians and indifferent robots to do all their retouching, Lakeside Camera Photoworks hires humans to put final touches on every product they make.
Instead of sending your precious memories out to be manipulated by merciless automatons mostly interested in their own series of Facebook bathroom photography, try this family owned and operated business for service imbued with real warmth. Lakeside Camera Photoworks was opened in 1972 by Rodney and Susan Guidry, and it has continued to be family-run and robot free for the past 38 years.
- Lakeside Camera…has reinvented what camera stores of the future should be, because the store is not only about selling hardware, it is about creating a family's legacy through photography. – Jerry Grossman, Photo Industry Reporter
