History of Kaiser Studio

Tim and Patty Kaiser started Kaiser Studio in 1980 and ran the business from their home until 1987 when they decided to rent a small office space in Troy, Michigan. As the company expanded, so did the size of their staff and office. In 2006, the studio opened their first store front studio location for high school seniors, families and other studio portraits. Up until this point Kaiser Studio's photography was all done on location at schools, churches and parks. In 2011, the company took the next big step and opened a state of the art processing lab in a second building. They now had complete control of their product, from photography through production, printing and distribution. Even with the added space, as the studio continued to grow, they again found themselves overcrowded. So, in September 2013, the current Kaiser Studio building was purchased to house the offices, production lab and photography studio in one location.

Kaiser Studio currently photographs 130,000 students around the Metro-Detroit area and has a staff of 70 people during the busy fall school picture season. Click here to learn more about the Kaiser Studio staff.
