Our innovative approach makes the most of consumers’ fascination with the latest digital imagery. By playing to this market trend, we gain new customers and provide added value, with high-quality, small file-size images our clients can easily share with friends and family members.

Virtual Studios LTD uses several digital cameras, computers fully loaded with image-manipulating software, such as Adobe Photoshop, Picasa among others. We also have high quality Fujifilm digital minilab to ensure our clients get their photos in high quality and on time.

Photos will be on display. Just as they appoint their homes with fine furniture and decorations, the photos on their walls need to exhibit quality.

Specifically, some of their needs include:

  • baby pictures
  • portraits for home or office
  • senior pictures for the high school yearbook
  • family pictures to send to family members
  • family newsletters
  • family, individual or business websites
  • portraits for business cards, such as for real estate agents
  • portraits for brochures and annual reports

The world has become increasingly digital, but many professional photo studios have made it difficult for people to enter the digital age. The traditional practice of retaining negatives to require clients to return for prints has been carried over to charging high fees for releasing digital files of their portraits.

The need to capture memories lasts for people’s entire lives, and business portraits require a regular update. But people generally don’t look forward to seeing a photographer. In fact, they find it a burdensome expense, have not established a relationship with a photographer and don’t think often about going to one. As a result, a lot of memories are lost and ancient portraits of professionals continue to be hung on walls and portrayed in publications. This makes them appear to be trying to preserve their youth instead of embracing their maturity and experience, and doesn’t show them in the best light.

Annual Portrait Program:  We take the initiative to schedule the annual portrait and we replace it in last year’s frame while saving last year’s photo in a portfolio.

Baby Picture Program: We arrange pictures of the baby at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year, 18 months, 2 years, and 2½ years.

Child Portrait Program: We arrange a portrait of the child at 3 years, 4 years and 5 years, or until the child begins to be photographed annually for school pictures.

Capturing Memories Program: We arrange an annual portrait of the family and individual picture of each member of the family. Photos include pets and the house and grounds, if desired.

Soliciting referrals from the friends and neighbors of our clients.

Specialty Advertising: Giving away interesting promotional products that are cool enough and inexpensive enough to ask them to give others away to their friends.


Competitive Edge

Our competitive edge is that we provide not only a photograph, but a program of ongoing portraits to capture the special moments in a family’s life. We then make the digital images of their photos easily and affordably available for distributing on the Internet.

Pricing Strategy

Our prices are competitive with other high-quality professional photographers in the area, but digital files are delivered affordably by CD or free by email. Our value added is in our programs of calls to capture the growth of the family.
