FROM CLICK TO CARRY
Once as a small idea, the Glossy Finish concept of capturing and delivering action photography products on-site has evolved into a successful business model, leading the way in youth sports photography. Using a process focused on instant gratification and state-of-the-art technology, Glossy Finish professional photographers cover the action and capture the passion of amateur sporting events. The photos are then immediately uploaded to a delivery platform (our Mobile Photo Trailer, photo store or website) that allows athletes and parents to view, purchase, and at some events, even take home their memories same-day!
Glossy Finish was founded in the Spring of 2006 by a group of passionate professional photographers with years of website development and sports photography experience. Our vision of combining amateur sports and professional photography came from watching and coaching our own children play sports, while never having much more to show from it than the “overly posed” team photo and “snapshots” of the game taken by other parents. To fill this void, we set out to build a business model that provides great action photography and an amazing Picture Day experience.
Over the years, Glossy Finish has had the pleasure of partnering with prestigious youth sports organizations such as American Youth Football, AYSO, Babe Ruth League, Cal Ripken League, Ripken Baseball, USA Football and United Youth Football League to name a few. We have covered state, regional and national events, including the first ever all girls baseball championship for Baseball for All.
Glossy Finish was acquired by Lifetouch in December 2013. We continue to pride ourselves on changing the industry, while capturing moments and creating memories!
