Trusted Sara and Sherry

“ I have known Sherry Morris and have been a customer at J & S Picture Frame Warehouse since 2010. I have engaged her talented team for help with multiple framing projects over that time and I have always trusted their design advice. Until working with Sherry I had no idea of the number of options available when you decide to professionally frame photos, pictures and other items - without experts by your side it’s easy to get overwhelmed. I have always been thrilled with the results and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.  

The picture of the bike above is just one of the pieces J & S has framed for Sara. 

On a personal note, Sherry Morris is a fascinating woman and an amazing entrepreneur. J & S has been in business for nearly 45 years,  and over that time she has grown and evolved the company whilst always remaining relevant. Anyone who knows Sherry will be aware of her passion for World travel - the list of exotic places she has visited is impressive- from Mongolia to Peru, and although she is in her 70’s there is no sign of her slowing down anytime soon! If I had to sum Sherry up in 3 words I’d say she is  FUN, HONEST and AUTHENTIC. I am grateful to be able to spend time with her, promote her work and support  J & S’s business goals!”  - Sara Wheelwright - Trusted Founder.

In this series of articles, we continue to shine a spotlight on the businesses that have been partners for over 10 years. This year we recognize the Trusted Saskatoon Partners that joined us in 2012. We want to thank them for TRUSTING our team, and we are identifying each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the citizens of Saskatoon and the surrounding area! This latest article celebrates and recognizes Milton Taylor and the ladies at Imagery Photography. 

Milton B. Taylor, MPA  founded Imagery Photography in 1977. Milton has had an illustrious and lengthy photographic career. He is a multi-award-winning photographer, whose skills are still very much in demand


When we presented Milton with his Trusted Saskatoon 10-Year Award, we asked him about advice he would give others in business and why he has been so successful over so many years. He replied simply and predictably…


“Treasure Life” has been Milton’s motto for many years. “We all get opportunities to do something in life. We have to seize those opportunities and make them count.” He hopes that we can all look back in years to come and recall how wonderful and treasured those opportunities are and that we always treasure life. 

Trusted Sara and Milton

“ I have known Milton since meeting him at a breakfast networking event in 2011,  and he has been my photographer ever since. Over the years he has visually documented my life with cherished family photos, passport photos, Trusted event photos and all of our Trusted team and website photos. I have always loved the results and have no hesitation in recommending Milt to anyone looking for a talented and trustworthy photographer in Saskatoon
In 2021 Milton agreed to collaborate with me to raise money for local charities. I roped him into volunteering as my partner and we stepped up a team for the Saskatoon Progress Club’s Celebrity Challenge -which promotes local restaurants and raises money for local charities. We represented Team HomeQuarter and together we sold over $6000 of gift cards and promoted the event far and wide. All in all the event raised over $80,000 for local non-profits, including one close to his heart, Care and Share Saskatoon.  I was thrilled to witness him accepting the prestigious Professional Photographers of Canada: Saskatchewan Fellowship Award. in 2017, which is the highest honour which can be bestowed upon a member. I am so grateful to be able to promote him as .a client, a Trusted partner and to also call him a valued friend."  - Sara Wheelwright - Trusted Saskatoon  Founder.   
Milton is also community driven and is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including but not limited to:
  • SABEX Community Leadership Award 
  • 2015 B’nai Brith ‘We’re Proud Of You Award. 
  • 2017 NSBA Shirley Ryan Lifetime Achievement Award 
  • 2017 Professional Photographers of Canada: Saskatchewan Fellowship Award

Community Support Is At The Foundation Of Imagery Photography

As passionate about volunteering as he is about photography, Milton devotes countless hours to many community organizations, projects and programs. He has been and continues to be, involved with many community and business organizations. If you visit his studio it is impossible to miss all of the awards crowding the window sills and shelves. Most recently, he was Chair of the NSBA board of directors. One of Milton’s greatest passions is his involvement with Care and Share Saskatoon.

Care and Share is a non-profit organization devoted to the needs of Saskatoon’s inner-city schools. Care and Share’s mission is to ensure all children have an opportunity to develop all of their potential: in sports, in school, in culture and in recreation. Milton strongly believes that education is the only way to break the cycle and that the longer children can stay in school, the better their chances of success. Milton volunteers and has served on the board for over 15  years

We guarantee when you choose Imagery Photography as your photographer for family, commercial or professional pictures, you will receive fantastic pictures at a fair price from a local family-owned business that cares!

Thank you for TRUSTING us Milton, Betty & Brenda, and thank you for providing 10 years of AMAZING service to the people of Saskatoon. Imagery Photography continues to be a well-respected and valued company in  Saskatoon and the area and they have always upheld our 5 TRUSTED GUARANTEES of service.

Imagery Photography - Your Trusted Saskatoon Photographers for over 10 years  

When the Trusted Saskatoon team gives a business the 'Thumbs Up' it really means something!! So continue to use and recommend to FIND GREAT LOCAL BUSINESSES YOU CAN TRUST like Imagery Photography. 

Trusted Saskatoon Brags About Imagery Photography, A Trusted Saskatoon Photographer! is so proud to partner with Imagery Photography and tell you why as we brag about this Trusted Saskatoon Photographer!

It seems like everyone who runs in “photographic circles” knows Imagery’s founder, Milton Taylor. Milton started Imagery Photography in 1977 out of a desire to be independently successful – and over the past 35 years has become a name that is synonymous with quality and artistry. As you can imagine, a lot has changed in the photographic industry over 35 years – the technology is very advanced as compared to the old equipment and processes. Milton comments,

“There is more to creating a portrait than a magic camera and photoshop skills… our strength is in our experience, our background in technical training, and our ability to understand the fundamentals – lighting, posing, and the mechanics of exposure.” 

Considering that Milton is a Master of the Photographic Arts, we truly believe that at Imagery Photography Saskatoon, you are dealing with the experts!

Your experience with Imagery begins with the initial consultation, where Milton gets to know a bit more about a person, and really listens to what you, the client, want from your session. This is crucial to the success of the shoot because this is where Imagery works with you to discover what style of portraiture will make you the happiest, whether it be journalistic, static, traditional, or environmental.

Listening to their clients is key to their success… Imagery Photography strives to give you the portraits that you will cherish. From this point, you then book your session (with a rain date chosen just in case!), and after that, a client comes back in to sit with Milton for the initial projection. This is where you can review all of the photos in the shoot with your photographic team to choose your favourites. After that, you are emailed your choices to make your final decisions, and then you are ready to order.

We all know that there are different reasons that people do what they do… some do it for the money, some do it for recognition, and some do what they do because they are passionate about it and genuinely love their craft. When we asked Milton what he loves the most about his work, he responded, 

“I love working in the environment, working with 3 or 4 generations of family, and working with young couples in love… you can see the passion people have for each other. Things in life will catch your eye if they catch your heart – these are the things you should pursue.” 

Essentially, Milton sees himself as a historian – and this is where the artistry really comes into play. 

“This work will be seen 50, 60, 100 years from now.”

Imagery Photography works in collaboration with many photographers in the province, hoping to elevate the standards of the industry and the profession as a whole. Milton does quite a bit of mentoring, and the attitude is always that someone once took the time to share knowledge with him, and this is his way to give back to the profession. He states, 

“Having a cake and eating it by yourself is no fun. This is my cake and I’m sharing it!” 

Asked about retirement, Milton always says he’s retiring on the first... the first time he doesn’t enjoy it anymore, that is! Well. here’s to many more years!!!!!

J & S Picture Frame Warehouse Explain Why the Right Glass is Important in Framing Projects

The J & S Picture Frame Warehouse team believes that your pictures deserve the best! Locally owned and operated, they constantly strive to bring their customers the best materials, advice, and workmanship for all of your framing needs. They simply offer the best selection of materials to preserve your treasures, keepsakes, and works of art in Saskatoon. J & S Picture Frame Warehouse are your Trusted Saskatoon Picture Framers. In their latest tip, they explain why the right glass is important to use on your framing projects.

The Right Glass is So Important to Use on Your Framing Projects

There are many kinds of glass to choose from when you are framing your pictures. You need to ask yourself if there are lots of windows and lights in the space that you will be hanging your pictures. The most important thing about glass is that it protects your artwork from dust and the environment. The UV rays can destroy your artwork in a very short time. There are 3 options for UV protective glass: Museum glass, UV clear glass, and UV reflection control. We believe that if something is worth framing, it is worth protecting with the best quality glass and acid-free materials. We see so many things that have been hanging for a few years and they are faded and very often we are not able to replace them.

Museum glass is the most expensive, but it truly is the best. It is 99% UV protective and it is clear so it will not have that annoying reflection.

UV Reflection Control glass is also 99% UV protective, but it is chemically etched on one side so that you don’t get an undesirable reflection. You will also lose some of the brightness and sharpness from your artwork. It is nice on bright coloured photographs, not on something with soft colour and fine lines.

UV Clear glass is also 99% UV protective but you do get a reflection, especially if you hang your picture across from a window or even hanging near table lights. You do not lose any brightness or detail but you do get that annoying reflection.

There is also just clear glass, the kind that comes in those big box store frames, the inexpensive ones. If you have an old photo or anything that is one of a kind, do not put your one and only piece in it. It will fade out in a few years and you will be very unhappy. As well, you need acid free materials to back your picture. Regular clear glass is the least costly and is OK to use on something that can be replaced easily or something that you know you will not want to keep for a long time.

Non-reflective glass is chemically etched on one side so you don’t get a reflection, but it will not stop your art or photo from fading. The poor mountain lion photographed below has turned blue from being framed in glass that isn’t UV protective.

Trusted Saskatoon Photography Expert at Imagery Photography Explains The Evolution Of Photography

Photographs... memories and precious moments in our lives captured in time with a click of a camera shutter. These are the occasions and days of our lives that only happen once. Trust the professionals at Imagery Photography Saskatoon with your special moments because they understand the importance these memories hold and work with you to ensure that they stay with you for a lifetime. Imagery is your Trusted Saskatoon photographer and in this latest article, owner Milton shares his thoughts on the evolution of photography. 

The Evolution Of Photography

Everything moves and shifts with the slow march of time until not much of the past normals are left to be sifted from the sands of the new.

There’s no question that tech has made us much more portable than we ever were. The equipment itself is far more sophisticated and capable — we can see what we are shooting in real-time; we can fine-tune everything to whatever our needs are. We are now able to transmit our pictures from anywhere we can get an internet connection. 

When I started, everything was dependent on processed film, which meant having to bring film, a darkroom kit including enlarging and print-making equipment, and a transmitter (very much like a souped-up fax machine). We’d have to find or at least arrange for a telephone line and telephone access when we needed to send our images. The phone lines were all analog, and each picture took around 10 minutes to send — if the line was interrupted for any reason, we’d have to start over. If we got out 10 images in a day, that was huge.

Photographers now can send wide arrays of photos multiple times during the day. The upside of all of this is more time on the scene providing coverage and more choices sent. The smartphone has killed the lower-end camera market, and if it hasn’t killed the mid-range market, it’s sure breathing down its neck. Everyone has a camera with them now at all times, and there's no doubt that we're seeing images that we never before could have contemplated. As we all know, it’s not just still images but also video.

I think it’s the ultimate democratization of photography — anyone at any time from anywhere can produce images that can affect how we think of the world around us. I feel that the common misconception in the debate is that photography has a set value for everyone. I always try to see it in the same way as food shopping. Some of us love to eat, we love to cook, and we love to discover new restaurants. 

We spend a disproportionate amount of our income at local farmers' markets, high-end supermarkets, and new openings. It matters to us and it’s something we want to invest in. Others want to spend their money on cars or clothes. That’s fine; they won’t be spending $200 on dinner, because they see no value in it. Photography is very much the same. If a client perceives the value of the event photography to be $100, then they are going to spend $100; a client looking for a $1200 photography delivery is not going to book a $100 photographer.

With each advance in the cellphone market, I wonder what the long-term prognosis is for the high-end cameras. The next evolutionary phase of photography might not be a progression in the way we make images. Instead, it’s quite possible the next unseen horizon will come from the way we share those images with the world or how we store them for ourselves. If a photograph indeed captures a memory, what use is that memory unless it can more tangibly be recalled? Looking back in the history of photography has each subsequent advancement not strived to make the photo more qualitative, more lasting, and more real?
