Many successful companies started in someone’s basement or garage.
Ours started in a bathtub.
Edward Vantine Sr., a photographer by trade, moved to Hamilton, N.Y. and took a room at the Colgate Inn. He photographed the fraternity brothers at Colgate University and used his bathtub to develop the film. Hamilton soon became Edward’s home where he founded Edward Vantine Studios, the first Collegiate Composite Photography Company servicing fraternities and sororities.
Edward Vantine Sr. passed the legacy of Edward Vantine Studios onto his son Edward Vantine, Jr. who renamed the company to simply, Vantine Studios and remained the industry leader in college photography. In 1999, Edward Jr. turned the company over to his son, David.
Under the leadership of David Vantine, Vantine Studios welcomed the new millennium with a new name: Vantine Imaging. Under the direction of David, Vantine Imaging continues as the leader in technology, quality and customer service, creating photographic composites for sororities, fraternities and other member organizations nationwide.

Vantine made our photography session operate smoothly. The photographer & representative were extremely helpful and understanding. The iPads were amazing! They helped the fluidity of the shoot.
The online format was very helpful and easy to use. Both Vantine photographer and composite representative were very helpful, friendly, and made the whole experience enjoyable and smooth.
Vantine made our composite day very easy. Both the representative and the photographer were very professional and helpful. Thank you so much for everything.
I was extremely impressed with how the entire process went, and even though this was only our first year using Vantine, I can confidently say that I am excited to have our composites done by the same team next year. Thanks so much!
A very easy process again this year! Thanks for another great composite!!!
