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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
