By Frank Baillargeon Iconic Idaho
On April 8 of this year I turned 65. After 38 amazing years in the photo industry (and millions of miles of travel!), I decided that it was time to stay home and indulge my passions locally. Iconic Idaho is my attempt to curate dynamic collections of historical Idaho images as well as collections from outstanding local photographers, and to offer premium quality, affordable wall décor prints from these iconic images.
With the help of some exceptionally talented local resources we are proud to launch this business and anxious to support the desire of homeowners and businesses to grace their walls with stunning prints that are both local and relevant. We aspire to make it easy for our customers and clients to search our current collections for images and collections of images that celebrate Idaho and provide a unique narrative for their homes or businesses. Central to our value proposition is our ability to develop customized collections that meet very individualized narratives.
Iconic Idaho has licensed the rights to images from such sources as the Idaho State Historical Society, the Idaho Statesman, Boise State University, Getty Images, and the Library of Congress. These licenses provide access to millions of historical images which provide the raw materials for almost boundless visual narratives that will celebrate our Idaho history, culture, and beauty…..often in ways that are unique to an industry or a physical location. Iconic Idaho also will constantly feature collections from talented local photographers whose works provide compelling and colorful perspectives on our state.
It is with great excitement and satisfaction that I can help to launch this new Idaho business and to deeply engage in the ongoing search for images that will inspire, inform and celebrate our wonderful state of Idaho. I am also delighted to leverage my decades in the photo print industry to bring affordable premium wall décor prints to our homes and businesses.
