PHOTOGRAPHS AND MORE

Taya, a Brookings-Harbor photographer, recently opened Tayas Photography at the Port of Brookings Harbor retail complex.

Taya opened the shop with her husband, David Gibson, who is also a photographer. Gibson will be doing the landscape and commercial work, Taya said.

Ive wanted to open a studio since I was 15 or 16, she said.

The shop will provide studio and senior portraits, wedding packages, landscape and commercial photography.

Taya said she and her husband will do any kind of photography that is requested.

Her portfolio includes several different kinds of photographs using backgrounds from the beach to a cemetery.

Taya plans to sell disposable cameras, film, photo equipment, post cards, cards and bookmarks in the future. She also plans to do film processing.

In addition, she will feature and sell art work from Brookings-Harbor artists Dawn Sigurdson and Karyl Roberts, and Glendale, Calif., artist Carol Gibson. Sigurdson does lithographs of photos, Taya said.

The lithographs take three to four months to complete because they are so detailed.

They look just like a photograph, Taya said.

She will also sell photographs she has taken.

Taya grew up in Merlin, a small community north of Grants Pass. After high school, she moved to Brookings, but returned to the Rogue Valley where she worked at Expressly Portraits in Medford.

At Expressly Portraits, she learned to do lab work and makeovers for photo shoots.

She plans to do makeover work at her studio if it is requested.

Taya said that she and David are planning a grand opening in a few weeks, but the studio is open right now.

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

For information or a reservation, call (541) 469-7117.
