The Action Sports Photography Division of Lifetouch National School Studios is Purchased

Glossy Finish has repurchased itself from Lifetouch National School Studios, the very company that acquired it in 2013. The Florida based company will continue to revolutionize action sports photography and order fulfillment through its proprietary process that allows it to deliver high quality printed posters and digital photos on-site for customers to take home from the prestigious events it photographs.

Jacksonville Beach, FL – November 1, 2017: Glossy Finish is pleased to announce the acquisition of its company back from Lifetouch National School Studios who purchased it in December 2013. The acquisition was made by an investment group spearheaded by Mr. Haim Ariav, the founder and CEO and Mr. Matt Winer, a senior employee and now CTO.

“We are thrilled and excited to take Glossy Finish to the next level. Our new independence will allow us the opportunity to again focus on the people, process and product that has proven to be a successful strategy and poises us for continued success”, stated Mr. Ariav.

Glossy Finish is a state of the art youth sports photography company. As a professional photographer, Ariav launched the company in 2006 with the aim of revolutionizing the conventional method of action photography and order fulfillment through a proprietary process he developed. Unlike traditional action photography companies that are limited to post-event photo sales and delivery, Glossy Finish specializes in on-site printing of action photography through its breakthrough Mobile Photo Labs and Photo Stores by enabling its customers to take home their high quality printed posters and digital photos directly from the events it photographs.

This on-demand production model, super-fast quality service, as well as high-tech sales tools, has rendered a unique competitive edge to the company. At present, Glossy Finish boasts an extremely prestigious list of clientele, including the likes of American Youth Football National Championships, Cal Ripken World Series, Offense-Defense Bowl Week, Babe Ruth League World Series, USA Football International Bowl, The Ripken Experience and many other esteemed organizations.


Speaking further on the success of Glossy Finish, Mr. Ariav mentioned their process of only photographing those players who register ahead of their games to be photographed. Customers can book the service with a nominal deposit and provide the game information of their athlete to the Glossy Finish team. Based on that data, photographers are assigned specific players to photograph, thus allowing the families many more quality photos to select.

“The process and technology we built, and continue to enhance, offers us a unique and stable platform to further grow our business. Our average order value is currently the highest in the industry and we continue to see increases year over year. We view the opportunity to get Glossy Finish back as one we simply could not pass on.” added Mr. Winer.
