Join Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly as they host Beware Theater – classic horror movies from the golden age of black and white. Bad acting. Bad Directing. Cheezy special effects and lame monsters. You can see Beware Theater in Fort Collins on FC Public Media – your local public access TV station – Comcast Channel 97, Connexion Channel 22, and streaming on fcpublicmedia.org. It’s lots of creepy fun.
Crazy Idea Photography was founded in 2016 when Myka and Tony Raymond, both teachers by weekday and photographers in the evenings and weekends, realized that some of their students were unable to afford the high cost some of the bigger photography studios were charging to take senior pictures. They felt that no student should go without their senior photo in the yearbook or be forced to use the standard ID card “mug shot” taken at the beginning of the year. That’s when they came up with a “crazy idea” – let’s set out to make photography affordable.
From senior photos and headshots to family portraits and sports team photography, CIP works strive to work with you to capture the spirit and character of you and your family.
Natives of Colorado, the Raymonds love the outdoors and enjoy capturing images of the world around them. The photos in their gallery showcases their love for flowers, landscapes, and wildlife. There may even be a few “creative” shots in there just for fun. Their style is casual and relaxed, yet they strive to provide a high quality product — a photographic memory that will last a lifetime!
In addition, CIP provides free cosplay photos for FoCo Comic Con attendees during the conference!
