Hello, everybody!

So we just started this blog yesterday with a few posts about our business, some of our services, and an announcement about our aStore. Today I want to introduce myself as the author of this blog and give you an idea of how we intend to use it.

Basically, I plan to update the blog once or twice a week. I'm going to share stories with you about my experience working at (iPfH), which means I'll post news and updates about our company. But I also plan to share the human side of our company through this blog, because that's what these things are really about anyway, right? We read blogs so that we can connect with other people, share ideas and get inspired.

So let me tell you a little about me. My name is Sara Campos and I've been working for iPfH for almost 3 years now. Even though I've only been on the payroll for the last few years, I've actually been hanging around this company since I was a kid.

My dad, George Campos, started this business about 30 years ago. We began as a darkroom rental lab, servicing artists and professional photographers who wanted to have more control over their printing but didn't want to go to a custom lab, didn't have access to their own darkroom, or maybe didn't have the money to invest in creating their own facilities at home.

The company evolved through the years: we became a custom lab at one point - we made websites, videos and print displays - and we did some consulting. And now, almost 30 years later, we're still basically doing the same thing that we were doing back when the Campos Photography Center first opened its doors.

At, we're still helping artists and professional photographers create excellent reproductions of their work by giving them access to professional systems and technologies that they may not be able to access on their own without paying a hefty fee for the service and/or use of the machines. And the cool thing this time around is that now, with the advent of digital photography, we can help you do it all from the comfort of your home or studio or anywhere you happen to be.

The part I play at this company is actually really fun for me. I manage customer service and work on business development. Doing both of those things simultaneously is really interesting and exciting because I get to hear directly from the customers and then turn around and use that information to make suggestions about what development ideas we should pursue as a business.

In this blog, I plan to let you in on my thinking process and ask you to share your suggestions as you have them. At, we're just people helping people. And the best way to do that is to find out what people need and then figure out how we can deliver it in a way that benefits everyone. That's exactly what we've been doing for the last 30 years and we look forward to continuing the journey with you.

Welcome to our blog. Thanks for taking the time to read our posts. And, please feel free to share your ideas...we'd love to hear what you have to say.
