Photography & Digital Imaging

Just a thousand words? If an ordinary picture is worth "a thousand words," just imagine what an image by Philip Tobias is worth. Founding Philip Wm. Tobias Photo/Graphics in 1973, he operated the business shown below in the same Denver, CO location until selling that going concern, complete with equipment, client database and negatives, along with limited trade name rights, in 1995. That business continued for some time before changing location and relinquishing the trade name. Philip Tobias started a respected photographic tradition that endured for over a quarter of a century.
