The Photography Specialist | 2016 Ball



It is with great pleasure TPS Studio has the honor of creating high quality art from custom photography during the 2017 Young Marines Ball Oct.21st.

This art is hand-crafted. It starts with a four-light photography setup with a green screen background. But the photography is just the beginning. Each image is enhanced for maximum artistic quality and then either blended with a custom mix of textured backgrounds or else a scene of your choice, such as several patriotic scenes we have available. We can also take your own idea for your Young Marine, your Young Marine siblings, or your family and make it into something special. We can combine any image with the studio photo we create at the Ball, perhaps you are even interested in a Young Marine Montage. There is no limit to what we can create so feel free to bring personal ideas with you!

Pricing is strictly based on pre-purchase. This is special discounted pricing available for this event only. All artwork is done by the artist, John Tobin, so allow a minimum of 3 weeks for completion. All purchased products will be delivered to the Temecula Valley Young Marines and each Unit will schedule a pickup from them to distribute to your local unit (If you prefer, you can have your completed art shipped to you personally at a cost of $25 for 8x10 and smaller product, and $40 for product larger than 8x10). We will also have a traditional blue blackground with a standing flag if you prefer a more traditional event photo.

We will be accepting CASH, Check, and Credit Cards.

Note: there is a $30 fee for returned checks.


Appointments are now being scheduled between 3pm-5:30pm (just before the Ball). To secure a spot ahead of time, please call 951-461-7320 to set it up. We will also be photographing during the event too, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Please understand we will be on a very tight schedule. So if you schedule and appointment, please be sure to be on time!

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the 2017 Young Marines Ball.


Here is an example of a multi-image art montage. Looks especially pleasing on Canvas, and brilliant on Metal

In addition to this special texture, you may choose from other background choices:
