Focused Visions is a Photographic and Imaging studio, based in Oregon. Our mission is to provide services for those who demand professional results, impeccable standards, and credentials that surpass the competition.
We can handle photographic needs ranging from portraiture and head-shots, real estate and architecture, environmental documentation, product photography, and events such as concerts, galas, gatherings, conferences, blowouts, bust-ups, etc.
Film is our passion, and the Focused Visions studio is stocked with a well-loved Canon EOS 3, Mamiya RB67, and 4"x5" Sinar C monorail system, in addition to our 50-megapixel Canon 5DS R. Current film stock includes well over 1000 exposures in cold storage, in black and white, C41, and E6, for all camera formats. Lens options range from the wide-angle Canon 14mm f/2.8L to a 1250mm f/10 Celestron super-telephoto. Over a dozen additional lenses and adapters, including flat-field macro, soft focus, and vintage options, allow for endless creative opportunities.
Imaging Services include scanning, printing, and reproductions of any size media. There is little that we cannot accomplish on the imaging side, and are able to offer in-house, museum quality printing, up to 17" wide. Our trusted printing partners allow us to handle jobs up to 60" in width, on media ranging from fine cotton rag, to heavy canvas, aluminum, plastics, and more.
Additionally, we are able to offer archival / museum grade restoration and imaging services, and are qualified to handle extremely rare and delicate artifacts that few others would choose to process.
