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.

  • No rest for the Street after a tough January
    Equities took a hit in January, while bond yields and the U.S. dollar jumped. As February kicks off, there will be a slew of corporate earnings and economic data for traders to parse through.
  • Bearish omen? Wall Street caps volatile January with 3% loss
    U.S. stocks ended what has been a tumultuous month with a 3% dip as traders digested a deluge of corporate earnings and economic data.
  • U.S. oil spikes 8%, traders eye month-end short covering
    Oil prices rocketed more than 8 percent higher on Friday, their biggest one-day gain in two and a half years, after data showed U.S. drillers were slamming the brakes on the shale drilling boom. In a rally that may spur speculation that a seven-month price collapse has ended, global benchmark Brent crude shot up to more than $53 (35 pounds) per barrel, its highest in more than three weeks, after Baker Hughes data showed the number of rigs drilling for oil in the United States fell by 94 - or 7 percent - this week. Two weeks of relatively stable oil prices have helped shift sentiment after months of decline, setting the stage for the violent rebound on Friday afternoon. With drillers having idled about 24 percent of their oil drilling rigs since the summer, some traders may be betting that an anticipated slowdown in U.S. oil production is nearer than expected.
