"Queen City" a name given to Allentown, Pennsylvania at the turn of the Century. Owned & Operated by Andrew Tomasino, an award winning portrait, commercial, and editorial photographer. Andrew's experiences spending time in studios from across the world (China, Dubai, Paris, London, New York) have lead him to open the first full service studio here in the booming area also known as the Lehigh Valley. It's been his muse since moving in 2016.
Experience in the Photography world is only one major step in order to run a professional creative space. So who better than to help but Ashleah Tomasino, a wildlife rehabber, teacher, and artist. Together with their son Onello (they call him "O") Andrew & Ashleah have created a space where Creativity can thrive. Queen City Studio is a space for anyone utilizing natural light, in need of proper Photographic Equipment for their projects, or to simply enjoy the view.
That space you see above? Yes, it's actually available for your creative endeavors. Need natural light? We got it. With windows facing South, you have natural, golden light cascading over the building the entire day. The warm wood floors soak up the light, throwing it off the clean white walls surrounding the shooting space.
Studio strobes, soft boxes, your tride-and-true umbrella ... it's all here at Queen City. Our carefully crafted tools will help bring you success for your shoot. Along with stands, and other grip needs. We'll even show you how to use tools you want to get familiar with.
Your a local photographer, you've got a shoot, but no extra hands to help you out. Let us assist you on your shoot at Queen City Studio. From lifting your gear to the clean up after the job is done, we'll help you do it with style and professionalism.
Gaffer's have been used since the dawn of filmmaking. A Gaffer is the lead lighting tech for a production or photo-shoot. Give us some examples of the lighting style you want, and we'll achieve it. No questions asked.
So your shoot is wrapped, but you haven't the time to retouch it yourself. You've got other business to conduct, and you need the job done with laser precision and focus. Hire us to do the heavy lifting for you and your clients. Our retouching skill was forged in the fires of high-pressure photo shoots in NYC, and we're always up for the challenge.
