Today is a BIG DAY for us as we proudly announce Bay Photo as our sixth lab partner. Bay is a powerhouse in our industry, leading the way with innovative photographic print and photo finishing services for over 40 years. Their focus on quality products, impeccable service, and technology make them an ideal partner for PhotoDay.
“We needed an online workflow and sales solution that didn’t just meet the needs of our studios but also anticipated the future of our entire industry, which was a tall order,” said Larry Abitbol, Bay Photo founder and president. “We chose PhotoDay because of its flexible, well-thought-out features for today, and its unrelenting focus on innovating for tomorrow.”
The bottom line is that Bay Photo knows the pro photography market – they’ve served school, sports, portrait, and event photographers for years as a full-feature, full-strength photo product manufacturer. They also know that the secret to success goes beyond providing top products and services. They look to intuition and data to make decisions that best serve their studios – and they know that the latest technology, applied smartly, is an essential ingredient. We couldn’t be more excited to bring Bay Photo onboard.
Our founders Jon Dantes and Rainer Flor have worked with Bay for years before PhotoDay was even conceived. Jon, PhotoDay’s CEO shared, “The folks at Bay have always been our friends, but now they’re PhotoDay family. This milestone means a lot to all of us.”
