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.

  • Investors look to earnings for market direction
    Investors attempting to determine whether U.S. equities will rebound from Friday's selloff or continue to sink will look to a deluge of earnings next week for a clearer picture of the economy. Equities lost ground after industrials Honeywell International and General Electric took hits from the strong dollar, while concerns over new trading regulations in China and Greece's place in the euro zone dented sentiment. Investors have grown concerned about the impact of a strong dollar on quarterly results, even as they remain leery of missing out on any rally. "Our markets will get kind of quiet again as we wait for some of those earnings and what is going to happen on the 24th with Greece," said Keith Bliss, senior vice-president at Cuttone & Co in New York.
  • IMF nations say global growth is 'moderate' and 'uneven'
    The International Monetary Fund warned in a communique on Saturday that while economic growth in developed countries had strengthened, some emerging nations were being hit by weaker commodity prices and exports. With the United States poised to hike interest rates, the IMF member nations said it was essential that moves to "policy normalization" were accompanied by effective communication of changes to reduce risks of spillovers. "The possibility of lower growth potential is becoming a more relevant challenge over the medium term," the IMF's steering committee said in a communique during the Fund's spring meetings in Washington. Those meetings conclude on Sunday and have taken place amid growing concerns cash-strapped Greece will fail to reach agreement with its European Union and IMF creditors.
  • Thousands in Germany protest against Europe-U.S. trade deal
    Thousands of people marched in Berlin, Munich and other German cities on Saturday in protest against a planned free trade deal between Europe and the United States that they fear will erode food, labor and environmental standards. Opposition to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is particularly high in Germany, in part due to rising anti-American sentiment linked to revelations of U.S. spying and fears of digital domination by firms like Google. A recent YouGov poll showed that 43 percent of Germans believe TTIP would be bad for the country, compared to 26 percent who see it as positive. The level of resistance has taken Chancellor Angela Merkel's government and German industry by surprise, and they are now scrambling to reverse the tide and save a deal which proponents say could add $100 billion in annual economic output on both sides of the Atlantic.
