Courtenay studied under the direction of master black and white pinter, Bob Brooks, and fashion photographer Frances McLaughlin-Gill. Courtenay’s fashion and editorial photography has been published in many publications in the United States as well as Japan.
Along with his his wife Addie, Peter has owned and operated the full service, high end, camera store / digital lab / studio / gallery, Custom Photo Images for over twenty five years. Custom Photo Images has evolved from a single darkroom into a premier operation with a reputation for producing high quality results.
Peter Lorber and Courtenay Gilbert began working together in 1993. Over time they have become the perfect photographic team. They combine Peter’s technical knowledge and experience in panoramic photography with Courtenay’s artistic vision, feeling and post production expertise to create stunningly beautiful images.
Peter and Courtenay create their panoramas digitally using Hasselblad and Fujifilm cameras, Seitz Roundshot VR drives and technically advanced stitching programs to produce seamless panoramas with the enlarge-ability their work is known for.
Hasselblad and Fujifilm are the only cameras Peter and Courtenay bring when they climb to the top of mountains, hang out of helicopters or even dive to the bottom of the ocean to capture their awe-inspiring images.
In addition to panoramic photography, our other photography services are: photography workshops, artwork reproductions, business headshots, product photography, architectural interior an exteriors,and large group shots
