New photo studio opened
Harry Tonemah has opened a new store in Wichita Falls and hopes it will catch on.
Tonemah, who has been a photographer in the area for over 30 years, opened the Sun Catcher Studio in the University Village Mall two months ago.
In addition to his service as a photographer, he makes the studio including props, backgrounds and lighting available to other photographers, whether amateur, professional or in between.
After about two years of planning, Tonemah began to realize his dream of working independently.
“I went through the Small Business Development Center here in Midwestern State. They were just amazing helping me figure things out, talk to me about what I need, how I would go about things and get things done to get the doors.” openly, “said Tonemah.
The studio is a versatile space with lots of natural light.
“The concept is that you can rent the studio itself and everything in it for one low price. You can use anything, props, backdrops, natural light, flash, constant light, everything in the studio to create your photos . ” said Tonema.
There is also a room that is set up as a podcast studio and can be rented with a professional microphone and acoustic panels for proper audio recording.
In addition, Sun Catcher Studio also has beginner photography workshops for children and Sarah Tonemah will be giving sewing workshops for teenagers. She has a Bachelor of Arts in fashion design and works as a costume designer for Texas Christian University and has taught sewing for nine years.
