Fricke Studio: Your Downtown Photography Spot

It’s a rare thing to have a photo studio downtown anymore. But not in Washington. We are lucky to have Fricke Studio on Elm street.

Fricke Studio has been in business in Washington Since 1987. Located on 313 Elm Street, they cater to your photography needs daily.

Meet the owner – Bryon Raterman. Bryon has been in the photography business for over 20 years, and he is dedicated to giving you the best quality and service at a fair price.

Fricke Studio offers Professional Photography for all occasions: Weddings, Studio and outdoor portraits for families, children and High School seniors , Commercial and Product photography, Sports and School photography.

In the spotlight. If you need a head shot for your business card or Linked-In Profile, Fricke Studio is the place to go.

What’s special about Fricke Studio is that they are very flexible in what they do to work with the customers to achieve the type of image they are looking for.

They are able to produce a lot of what they do in house, giving them greater control over the actual printing process resulting in better quality and faster turn around. Fricke Studio also offers photofinishing services and digital restoration.

The most challenging photo shoot Bryon has completed? “It was back when we still used film. We took pictures for the Bank of Washington Senior Advantage Christmas party. The bank wanted us to take all the guest pictures about 250 couples print them each a 5×7, frame them and hand them out all in less than 2.5 hours. we got it done. Now we use digital cameras and the process is much easier and faster.”

Fricke Studio is very flexible with their scheduling and they can make appointments any day of the week. They know most people have busy schedules and most family get together on the weekends or around the Holidays, and they are there to cater to your needs. (Photo: Bryon Raterman, Fricke Studio)

What does Bryon loves about their downtown location? “The best thing about being in Downtown is the friendly atmosphere, central location and being close to other business that I do business with. It makes things very convenient.”
