White Rust Photography, operating in historical downtown King, has been in business since 2009. Photographers Cindy McFarland and Ashley Turner formed a bond at a wedding show when they realized they were both from Stokes County and needed each other’s help to be successful in the photography business.
“We just started helping one another other and a relationship was formed,” said McFarland.
Turner and McFarland have a mutual passion for the art of creative photography and both have ten plus years of experience.
“A lot of people don’t realize the training it requires to take pictures. It’s more than just pointing a camera,” Turner said. “We’ve had training in newborn pictures and we both went to Atlanta to became certified and have taught a class to our competitors here locally. Training is always ongoing if you want to be successful in this business.”
White Rust offers a variety of different picture themes including: weddings, newborn pictures, maternity, dance, all-star cheerleading, sports, proms, senior portraits, family portraits and studio portraits. They also run popular monthly promotions.
“The promotions are different themes we have going on each month and the price is the same regardless if it’s one child or three,” McFarland said. “Things are expensive and we realize that, but pictures are priceless and we’ve had many clients come back to us after a fire or a love one passed away, wanting to rekindle memories with pictures.”
The duo also enjoy taking their clients out of the studio and into the beautiful landscape of Stokes County.
“One of my favorite places to shoot is Hanging Rock at the waterfalls,” said Turner. “We love going on location to get the scenic beauty of this area.”
“Another favorite spot is YMCA Camp Hanes and Central Park in King when the flowers are blooming,” McFarland said.
