AM Photography started business in the early 1990s, but it all really began when Everett “Andy” Andrews opened Andy’s Photography in the early 1970s. Andy’s Photography took most of the portraits marking many memories for the Durango and outlying communities for over 25 years. After the sale of Andy’s Photography, Andy and his wife Mary started AM Photography and documented the participation of many of the area’s athletes. From football and volleyball in the Fall to track and baseball in the Spring, AM Photography photographed team and individuals for many of the schools in the Four Corners area since 1991.
In 2008, Andy sold AM Photography to Kipp and Tammy Schreiner making sure that they stayed consistent with the image quality and clarity which earned him first name status throughout the area. Kipp, Tammy, and their daughter Bailey inherited Andy’s commitment to quality, and work to capture crisp, vivid images of groups and individuals, but more importantly to catch the special personality of each.
After “The Schreiners” purchased AM Photography they expanded the business to include numerous youth sports organizations, special events, and portraits in naturally lighted settings. They have experimented with custom sports situations, such as documenting team photos and candid action shots into posters marking team participation and distinction in major events - for example the NCAA II Super Regional golf competition. Basically, AM Photography enjoys a reputation of capturing the moments which make life fun.
