Extreme Photography Studios



Where Creativity is King!
When you visit the website of Extreme Photography Studios it quickly becomes apparent that creativity is king. Nothing is typical when it comes to this company -- headed by owner Tiffaney Arbogast-Burke and business partner Derek Burke. Since starting up Extreme Photography Studios in 1999 the company has stayed at the forefront of the Dallas/Fort Worth photography industry by utilizing as many tools within DARKROOM software as we have ever seen.
Whether they are bringing Santa's workshop, photo booths, green screen, and paparazzi to clients (to name only a few of their services), we often look to Extreme Photography Studios for inspiration. Heading into the holiday season, we were curious to ask Tiffaney her thoughts on how her products, marketing, and business may change over the course of a year.
DARKROOM: Thank you for your time! Tell our readers about Extreme Photography Studios.
Tiffaney Arbogast-Burke: Extreme Photography Studios has been in business providing event and portrait photography services since January 1999. We specialize in large volume events such as corporate holiday parties, sporting events, charity functions, tradeshows, proms, and Santa events -- but, as our website states: Wherever people are, we can be!
DARKROOM: How would you describe your services to other photographers?
Tiffaney Arbogast-Burke: We provide entertainment photography, social media marketing, and client data capture services to corporations and individuals. Our services provide our clients with the option of photo output while on-location, immediate online image retrieval via Facebook and email, and the ability to capture customer email address.
Our original business strategy has not changed but we have adapted with the evolution of digital. We now offer our clients more ways to brand their products. For example, we often pitch using photography as a tool to brand the event better in social media and a way to drive traffic to our clients websites -- something that would have been unheard of a couple of years ago.
