Creative & Willing

Richard E. Allen, Jr. President/CEO Space Center Houston



High Integrity
… Since 1998, Showtime has provided entry photography for all guests touring Elvis Presley’s Graceland Mansion. …

Several years after beginning our business relationship, I approached Kemal about possibly adding a separate green screen photo concession in a space that we wanted to repurpose. After several weeks of planning, we settled on a product offering…

Our business has grown steadily during our long relationship and Kemal along with his team are regularly proposing new photo experiences to keep the photography business vibrant. As technology has evolved, so has their equipment.

… I cannot speak highly enough about the level of integrity that Kemal and his team bring to their operation. They are true to their word, easy to work with and quick to respond to any needs or concerns that may arise.

We have been approached many times by other photo concession companies over the years, but due to our financial success and comfort level with Kemal and the Showtime team, we have seen no reason to change.

I highly recommend Showtime Pictures as a resource for your photography endeavors.
Danny Hiltenbrand Vice President Merchandise & Food/Beverage Graceland
