In 1984 AllStar Sports Photography was born. At age 26, Richard Markham entered the world of part-time weekend sports photography. AllStar Sports Photography began to take the sports marketplace by storm based on the premise: Give customers more value and better service than anyone else in the market. The biggest problem was that the various processing labs Markham used did not share the same high standards of customer service that he did. Delivery deadlines were usually not met and quality did not measure up to his expectations. AllStar Photo Labs was created in 1996 to fill this void in the specialized market of sports photography. AllStar Sports Photography is the most trusted name in youth sports photography.
