Lawrence Manning and Betty Mallorca are the founders of Hill Street Studios and TRACK 13 gallery. These partners have many years of experience in commercial and professional photography, art direction and graphic design. They have spent a lot of time as entrepreneurs, in addition to the experience of working at high-level corporate jobs. Individually, they both create fine art and show their work in various galleries and art exhibitions.
Hill Street Studios is a media production company which provides still photography, video and graphic design. The studio was founded in 2000 and is located in the historic downtown district of Nampa, Idaho, 20 miles west of Boise. Hill Street Studios is a commercial photography studio in downtown Nampa providing assignment photography services for marketing and advertising. The studio’s goal is to add authenticity and believability to situations that reveal subjects' character: a sense of personality, curiosity, fun, pride, passion, dedication—whichever traits are waiting to be revealed.
Assignments: Lawrence and Betty have extensive experience in all aspects of photography, branding, art direction, and graphic design. Their client list includes Fortune 500 companies and local small business owners. Their team can work on simple projects with modest budgets, but have also built image libraries inclusive of all aspects of a large corporation or organization.
Stock Photography: Hill Street Studios is a contributor and part-owner of Blend Images, a multicultural commercial stock agency. Their photos can be found and purchased directly from blendimages.com, as well as Corbis and Getty Images, and other stock photography agencies. Each image is a produced shot -- not photojournalism or reportage -- and is model and property released. Hill Street Studios continually seeks people of all ages, ethnicities, occupations and interests who would like to partner on a project. All photos are given free of cost to the organizations, businesses, families and individuals who partner with Hill Street Studios, for their personal or professional use.
TRACK 13 is our personal home and gallery space, in a 100-year old brick building in the heart of historic downtown Nampa, Idaho. We are delighted to live and work here. In addition to our commercial photography business (which continues to operate under the name of Hill Street Studios), TRACK 13 is a fine art gallery, event/performance space, and a place to host community classes, meetings and gatherings.
TRACK 13 is a creative and welcoming venue which promotes and supports the arts and artists of all genres. Our hope is to bring together different circles of people in fun and exciting ways. Creativity and a sense of community happen naturally when there are gathering places for people to meet and share information and ideas.
We would love to have you attend the events and exhibitions at TRACK 13 and support the growing variety of projects and endeavors presented by our fresh, vibrant community. And bring a friend! We look forward to meeting you.
