Business & Home Information

Many businesses have chosen to use Hargis Photography for their office and publication needs. Our selection of fine photographic art appears on websites, posters, calendars, magazine covers and reports and adorns the walls of many businesses to provide an aesthetically pleasing environment for their clients. Photos can be purchased outright with a commercial license and used as you see fit or we offer a lease program so you can choose to have a rotating gallery in your office and we also exchange goods/services for our work which is a convenient and easy way that both parties enjoy the benefits without exchanging monetary funds. Prints are sold in a wide variety of sizes but most businesses choose to purchase a digital download as this can be received immediately and then processed on to your company’s project without wasting valuable time that would otherwise be taken up with printing and shipping. Please do not hesitate to call us for a consult and we will discuss your company’s needs.

If you would like to set up a gallery in your home or just want to a add a few artistic prints to spruce up your living environment we will gladly come to you and discuss options, sizes, layouts and colors and no charge and will gladly help you with the ordering and installation process.
