john and tammy
"Tammy and I came to a Show 'N Tell Saturday. The initial conversation was Robert talking about what it is to be a Home Video studio Owner. Of course we'd listened to the CD's over and over in our car for a couple of months. I think Then we had the presentation and we signed right there at the end of the presentation."

"Our Show 'N Tell Saturday was on May 11, 2002 - Mother's Day weekend! We were already operating our own video business, but we wanted to run it at a higher level with better equipment. We needed a plan and a system like the one offered by Home Video Studio. If you're thinking about HVS, you should go to Show 'N Tell Saturday."
- Tony & Lori Melendez - Amherst, OH.

Home Video Studio owners come from all walks of life. They come from different backgrounds and cultures. Successful Studio owners have a drive to take on the day; a willingness to try things. A thirst to drink what life has to offer.

After working for 18-years as a Graphic Designer in local papers, including The Cincinnati Enquirer, and another 11-years as a Freelance Designer, Debbie decided to change career paths a bit to focus on her strengths in photography, videography and music. As a graduate of Northern Kentucky University, she holds a Degree in Fine Arts and Photography as well as Music Performance.

Drawing and Photography was something that attracted Debbie very early on in her life. She knew that she wanted to do something utilizing her artistic skills. In her early years at the newspapers, all creative was done by drawing board and t-square. Through the years, as technology progressed as it has, she gravitated towards computer design, creative photography and editing to assist her in her creations. Debbie loves working with creative software to bring her visions to life.

All of this led to Debbie's desire to own her own studio business. She had been looking for franchise type opportunities and liked what she saw in our home based video production business, including Entrepreneur magazine's recognition of Home Video Studio as #1 Franchise Opportunity for photo and video services. It was the perfect atmosphere for Debbie, so in 2011 the doors to her Home Video Studio opened!
