Studio & Portrait Photography

The DLB studio & portrait photography offering requires a little background. Marianne Schwankhart and Thys Dullaart, both ex-photojournalists and now business partners in DLB, were looking for ways to re-invent their photography and provide a service that was a little out of the ordinary. They formed a photography company called Dragontree Photography that provided a  SHOOT | PRINT | FRAME offering that was a little out of the ordinary.

In 2017, Marianne and Thys took over David Lewis-Browne Framers & Gilders from the retiring owners and with this merged their Dragontree photography business into the DLB offering. What we now have at DLB is a fully equipped large studio space for commercial, studio portraiture, art copy work, and a studio that is for hire.
