Seabrook, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/11/2014 -- Just because technology has brought the camera into every home and business through the proliferation of the cell phone does not mean that everyone is a bonafide photographer. There are many photographers out there who want more than a one-camera-fits-all camera. Many of them live and breathe photography in some fashion for most of their waking hours. With the cost of enthusiast cameras on the rise, many do those passionate about photography are being priced out of the art they love. There are other camera stores, but those stores do not combine becoming part of a membership group of photo enthusiasts like themselves, nor offer both rental and purchasing discount options. That's where Elizabeth LeBlanc wants to set her photography business apart from the rest.
LeBlanc's vision is to provide sales of superior photography experience, with post-sales perks. She also envisions equipping photographers with the opportunity to access top-tier equipment through convenient rental plans, and to give photographers a shared space to flourish in their passion. Photographers can obtain camera bodies and lens that enable them to take their profession or hobby up the ladder, no matter their photo subject(s).
ApertureStock is about bringing affordability to the arena and equipping photo champions with the tools that they need in order to upgrade and enhance their work. ApertureStck strives to make their customers family. The term “Aperture” refers to the physical opening within the camera lens that enables light through the sensor. A wider aperture, enables more light to enter.
Stunning, ultra-vivid photos with excellent lighting, composition, balance and excellence are within reach through the network, the impact and the equipment that comes with the ApertureStock experience.
Amateurs can become advanced amateurs by using the catalog of benefits offered by ApertureStock, and even professionals can move higher in their journey.
