It is with mixed emotions I locked up the studio for the last time today (March 31st, 2021) as Tracy and I are retiring from school and sports photography. We have a had a wonderful time working with many awseome people and will miss them. Specially Julie, Sandy, Ranelle and Carmen from our office who have helped make Fowle Foto and Proline a success. After being a photographer for 43 years it is time for a break. Tracy and I will be pursuing our hobbies and other interests and we hope to travel again soon.
We have sold the business to Eric and Dawn Arksey from Vibrant Photos. We chose them because their ethics and business philosophy are in line with ours. Their customer experience, service and quality of photography are exceptional. Julie and Sandy are staying on with them and Tracy and I will be consulting as needed so you can be sure the transfer will run smoothly. Eric and Dawn have also taken over our sports division Proline Sports Photography and will continue to operate it under that name.
We will still be doing the Santa photos at ValleyFair Mall. Our special connection with Santa makes it hard to leave. I believe this will be our 20th something year with Santa and we are fortunate to have him still coming to Maple Ridge. The faces of the kids as they talk to Santa is what keeps us going through the years. Stay tuned for more Santa info as we get closer to Christmas.
I thank everyone who we have had the good fortune of working with over the years. Thank you for your trust, loyalty and business.
Bill and Tracy
