A Chat with Tim Galyean Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Senior portraits are what we have specialized in for the last 30 years. With proper posing, lighting, and settings for each individual, people love our portraits without relying on Photoshop. We offer quick sessions and even on-location…sessions—indoor studio or outdoors.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I started photography in high school in 1976 and then worked for a daily newspaper. I opened my first studio in 1985 and just enjoy doing custom portraits for each individual that capture who they are. You can’t capture the heart and soul of a person with Photoshop.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with high school seniors; they are fun and full of life. And they usually don’t cry during their photo sessions or make a mess in my studio. I enjoy making my own hours and doing things my way as far as running a business.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I get lots of positive feedback every week because of the amount of seniors I do, so I could share lots of great comments from my clients. One recently emailed saying that her daughter had her senior portraits taken by three different photographers, and the ones I took are the only ones she likes.
