Featured Member - Firestone Photography
Firestone Photography has been in the heart of the historic Mission San Jose District of Fremont since 1984. We do creative quality photography for families, children, small businesses & large corporations. We specialize in portrait and commercial photography. We love working with our
clients to create a lasting memory of family, or a business image that will build your brand. Jeff Firestone says, “My passion now, as always, is people, I love portrait photography. Capturing that portrait that can change someone’s self-image, help a business career, or that family portrait that means so much to everyone in the family.” We can work on location, in an outdoor environment, in our studio at 139 Washington Blvd., or we can bring the studio to you. Visit our website here for more information. We serve Fremont and the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
