In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Photography and Design Services
We provide a complete range of photography and design services including wedding photography, portrait photography, and sports photography, plus a full range of graphic and web design.
Wedding PhotographyWe offer online proofing in private wedding galleries, a wide range of wedding packages, conventional or "magazine-style" wedding albums, proof albums, and proof CDs. See our Weddings section for complete details and a full description of our wedding packages and prices.
Portrait PhotographyAre you comfortable in a portrait studio? If not, you're not alone. Most people aren't.
Our approach is different: Our goal is to capture natural moments and expressions, and to create photographs that make you smile every time you see them. We go where you're most comfortable and where you'll enjoy being photographed. The choice of location is up to you ― we can adapt to almost any setting. We specialize in engagement photos and bridal portraits; for a few examples see our Portraits section.
We enjoy shooting sporting events - we focus not just on the action but also on the emotions and the stories behind the action. We primarily shoot college sports, bicycle racing, and horse racing.
Our sports photographs have been published in newspapers and magazines; for example, our coverage of the 2006 Tour of Shenandoah bike race was published in Pedal Magazine, Velo News, and Cycling News. To see galleries of images from the Tour of Shenandoah (renamed for 2007 as the Tour of Virginia), click here.
We combine photographs, graphics, and text (we even write all text for you if you wish) to produce catalogs, annual reports, brochures, and other promotional literature.
Web Photography & Web Design
In conjunction with our parent company, BlackBird Media, we design websites for corporate and commercial clients. (This site is one of them.)
The site we created for Integrated Manufacturing Systems, a facilities construction and site management company, is just one example of how we combine photographs and design elements to create award-winning websites. Click here to view the IMS website. (We also wrote all text for the site.)
Photos for web use must not only be attractive and effective; they must also fit the design of the site, serve a marketing or illustrative purpose, and enhance the professional image of the site's owner.
Websites can't just look pretty - a great website, first and foremost, serves a business purpose. To learn how we can blend photography, text, and graphic design to create an effective website for your company, Contact Us.
