Vendors in Photography (VIP) Members

The following Vendors in Photography give their time, service and sponsorship to our association. Please make them your first choice for supplying your professional needs.

Pacific Mount was founded in 1988 to meet the needs of professional color labs. Prior to Pacific Mount entering the mount board business, most mount boards were either art board or made with a chip board center. Neither board gave a smooth surface for the print to be mounted, creating a mounted print with an orange peel look. Pacific Mount is the leader in developing a mount board with a smooth surface and we have been setting the standard to this day.

Because we manufacture our own mount board, we have total control over all aspects of manufacturing and can provide you with custom sizes that fit your needs. We also carry industry standard sizes that fit most professional photographer's needs.

Join the leaders in the imaging industry and let Pacific Mount supply you with your mount board. Pacific Mount prides itself on its customer service so please give us a call and let us serve you. Most orders no matter how big or small, ship within twenty-four to forty-eight hours with many being shipped the very same day.

Pacific Mount is always seeking new ways to meet our customers' needs. Please let us know what products you would like to see offered.

High Desert Metal Prints and Fine Arts is dedicated to high end reproduction of digital photos and graphic arts on HD Aluminum.  

We started this business at first to reproduce my travel photography and my wife’s graphic arts on Aluminum. I wanted the highest quality I could get.   We researched the types of Aluminum for sublimation and there was only one that would work for us Chromaluxe Aluminum, there is no comparison with others.   Then we went with a Epson 9890  8 color printer with the highest pro inks to get the best results.  Most other Co. use 4 color prosses which does not give good blacks or skin color. I strived for the best for myself.  Then after tweaking the process for over a year we came out with a winner.  Now we are offering it to the public but geared for the professional photographer.

An unique printing process | 8x10 to 40x60 large format | Will give professional museum quality | High fade resistant | Sharper details, cleaner edges | No photo surface protection needed | Eye popping presentation

Whitmire Canvas Co. - Custom Canvasing

Whitmire Canvas Company was named after the late Ken Whitmire, a legendary portrait artist whose work is recognized nationwide. The Whitmire family helped pioneer the canvas process in the 1960s using the original McDonald canvas mount system which we are still using today.   It is, in a sense, an imperfect science where every roll of canvas varies in texture and requires special attention. Ward Whitmire, Ken's son, is our current canvas expert bringing over 30 years of canvassing experience to our clients.

Hanging Branch - Presentation Packaging Supplier

Hanging Branch offers every photographer a resource to set themselves apart. Nothing says more about a brand's success and talent like a set of personally engraved USB and box with your logo.

When we were photographers, we saw a lack of quality in the product delivery. Some of the best photographers we knew failed to recognize the importance of "presentation." So, we opted to change that. We know that running a photography business is busy beyond measure. That's why we are here, to take care of every part of your elegant packaging so you can worry about one less thing.

Fathom Focus - In Person Sales Software on your iPad 

FathomFocus is a previewing and projection sales App for the iPad. It allows a professional photographer to run an in-person sales session using their iPad as a controller. Simply connect your iPad (wirelessly) to your PC, MAC, Apple TV (or use HDMI cable), or use just the iPad. You can then be in total control of the sales process.

We have so many extra features built in. Our goal was to make this App the dream program for a professional photographer doing in-person sales. A few highlights include complete brand customization (including your logo, studio name, and terms), total control over your price list, packages, add-ons, extras, crop sizes, scale sizes, and collections. We also have order groups, so you can set aside a set of images for ordering special products like albums or calendars, a snapshot so you can return to a specific set of images without having to remember them, and a back button – so you can easily return to the previous set of images you were looking at (this is one of my favorite features). Our main gallery area also supports all the thumbnails in your folder – so you don’t have to switch to a new screen to see all the images on one screen. You can also drag images around to come up with a custom order and layout – just like you would a traditional light table. It’s so easy, and only on the iPad.
