When I go to a photographer's gallery reception, I view the work, socialize and enjoy hors d'oeuvres, but I am working. Some of the attendees are people I do business with, and others are potential clients.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
Frame Destination, Incorporated, a Dallas-based fine-art photography frame company specializing in museum-quality wood and metal picture frames, celebrates its fifth year anniversary. Entrepreneur Mark Rogers has built Frame Destination from its humble beginnings as an at-home business into one that will soon operate from a 11,000 square-foot photography framing facility.
Rogers began his journey into the realm of photography framing because he, a photographer himself, could not find the frames that he desired. Digital photographs come in a wide range of sizes that were often not available from traditional picture frame suppliers. Rogers decided to fill that need, and Frame Destination was born in 2004.
He started working part-time out of his garage, and held down a day job as an electrical engineer. After six months of hard work, Frame Destination began making a profit, and it and Rogers have not looked back.
Eventually orders began coming in to such a degree that he needed to expand his operations. Rogers moved out of his initial home operation in May 2005, and eventually into an 8,000 square foot facility in July 2008; due to even larger production orders, Rogers will be adding an additional 3,000 square feet to his photography framing facility this July. Along with this growth, Frame Destination continues to expand their line of products for artists and photographers. Most recently, Rogers has added stretcher frames to their line of artist's supplies. Stretcher bar frames offer artists a unique alternative to stretcher bars.
Rogers ruefully admits that with his attention focused on his rapidly growing company he has had to cut back on the amount of time devoted to his favorite hobby. Nevertheless, he reports that his work allows him to take part in many of the aspects of fine art photography that he enjoys,along with plenty of interaction with other photographers who form the bulk of his client base. Rogers notes that "When I go to a photographer's gallery reception, I view the work, socialize and enjoy hors d'oeuvres, but I am working. Some of the attendees are people I do business with, and others are potential clients."
Rogers has used the Internet to build his successful small business as well. With a quality website that offers not only conservation-quality photography frames in custom sizes, but also other framing supplies such as mount and mat board, glazing and photograph storage solutions he has used well-placed banner ads, search engine optimization and Google AdWords to help attract new customers.
Roger's initial garage start-up is a model of successful entrepreneurship, and provides inspiration for other people who wish to start a home-based business to take the leap; even in uncertain economic times Frame Destination and Mark Rogers show that you can start and build a successful small business.
