Defiance Photography, LLC
Located in The Wisconsin Dells
Defiance Photography is an establish photo service company and formally was located in Grand Lake, Colorado. Several things have happened since the loss of our lease in Grand Lake. We have relocated to The Wisconsin Dells, near Baraboo, Wisconsin. Secondly, the condition of the economy is not what I would say as being perfect. With these changes in mind we have relocated to a more favorable area and feel that it is time to re open our brick and mortar store and studio.
We are open to about any type of venture capital, whether it be a short term loan, gift, or partnership. We have past records that show numbers that pertain to the operation of this store.
We are looking for a working partner or silent investor that might also be looking for a short term or long term relationship. In a short term relationship I would prefer a one or two year agreement with an equitable return on your investment. A long term situation might include a working partner or one who has a business that wishes to expand with us. It is our belief that this current economy situation is short term, but with proper customer relations and the proper advertising we can be immune to all but a complete economic failure. The location of the new store is open to discussion, but would prefer to be in The Wisconsin Dells area due to it's popularity with nearby metropolitan areas. This is different than Grand Lake but on a similar demographic plane.

2008 Budget Projections& Pro Forma Based on real time figures from the past store upon requestKey Risks
Due to the softening of the economy we believe that 2009 will hold to the numbers in the financials.
We will focus on photography as the overhead will be low, with a higher return. At present the photo inventory is approximately $6000.00 in printed material, and the mechanical infrastructure is in place.
The figures in the protected area represent the old store and it's operation and are variable, depending on a new store and overhead, etc... The figures represent an outline, as to the requirements that will be feasible to the solvency of the new store. If it appears that it won't work on paper we won't do it.

Photography Equipment 4000.00
