...
JOHN: Today on the More Photos Photography Spotlight we have Chicago, Illinois, photographer, Bill Melonides, of MVP Studio.
...
Welcome to the program, Bill.
...
BILL: Yeah, it's right near O'Hare.
...
BILL: MVP Studio is a family owned and operated studio. We're celebrating our 30th anniversary here in Park Ridge, and we do quite a bit of wedding photography as well as some family and children's portraits. That's primarily the majority of my business...it's weddings and portraits.
JOHN: Now, Bill, you had mentioned in the pre-screen that you do high end weddings.
...
BILL: Well a lot of my clients we do larger weddings; sometimes 400 - 500.
...
BILL: I would say they constitute about 60% of the work that we do in the studio, yes.
...
BILL: That's an option that each client has when they come in.
...
BILL: Well I've been doing this a really long time, John.
...
BILL: Oh, absolutely.
...
BILL: Absolutely.
...
BILL: You know, I get some.
...
BILL: I do.
...
Speaking of website, Bill, we're going to take a little break, but why don't you give your website address and contact information please.
BILL: Sure the website is www.mvpstudio.net and we can be reached at (847) 698-5828 and our extension is ext. 2.
JOHN: We'll be right back with Chicago photographer, Bill Melonides of MVP Studio.
...
JOHN: We are in the studio with Chicago photographer, Bill Melonides of MVP Studio.
...
Welcome back to More Photos Photography Spotlight, Bill.
...
BILL: Well Chicago is a big metro area, and we do...we really don't discriminate as far as the clients that we take from what area they're from.
...
BILL: Well one of the areas that I'd always enjoyed and wanted to get into was environmental and fine art photos.
...
BILL: Well we do offer quite a bit through the studio in addition to the weddings and the portraits. Our wedding clients tend to really want to put together a photo album from the wedding photos. So we have a graphic artist that works in house, and she takes the wedding photos that the bride selects and lays out a digital kind of montage photo album from those pictures, and she works together with the bridal selections, and the bride let's us know which photos are her favorites and whether she wants them in black & white or if she wants any art work done to them.
...
BILL: Oh absolutely. A lot of my portrait clients and the wedding clients want to take those photos that they have made and then frame them, and we have an extensive selection of custom frame corners that we can use to put together some really great frames for our clients. They're all custom. We have thousands of matte choices to select from as well as hundreds of different frame corners. We can pretty much put together a unique piece for any photo.
JOHN: Now we're running out of time here, Bill, but I wanted to ask you a couple more questions.
...
BILL: Our studio has been operating now for quite a long time...30 years is a long time to be photographing weddings, and I think we've achieved a level of quality that is very, very good and it's a lot better than most of the wedding studios that are in the city.
...
JOHN: Well I've seen some of your work, Bill, and no doubt about it, you've got a very good product that you're offering to the public.
...
BILL: Thanks, John, I appreciate it.
...
BILL: Certainly. The website is www.mvpstudio.net, and the phone number at the studio (847) 698-5828.
JOHN: There you go folks, we have been speaking with Chicago, Illinois, photographer, Bill Melonides, of MVP Studio, and you've been listening to the More Photos Photography Spotlight.
