Located at 5275 National Center Drive in Colfax, our studio opened its doors in January 2007 in its original downtown High Point location. Over the past few years the company outgrew its High Point studio space, prompting Diana to search for a larger facility. Just minutes from the Piedmont Triad airport and located off I-40, the Colfax location became available. Diana and one of the Triad’s leading commercial builders began the task of renovating and adding a 10,000 square-foot addition to the new location through the latter half of 2013 to create a state-of-the-art photography studio with 54,800 square feet. In January 2014, the company moved into the new custom-designed facility which features an impressive 51,600-square-feet of actual studio space. It has approximately 20 custom-designed room sets and a huge daylight photography bay with modular set parts for endless set design possibilities. The vast accessory and prop gallery is filled with gorgeous and always current accessories. The studio’s warehouse for incoming goods is 5,000 square feet and the impressive carpentry shop filled with state of the art equipment is 3,000 square feet.
Formerly located in the heart of High Point’s furniture district, Diana Parrish Design and Photography is the brainchild of entrepreneurial owner Diana Parrish, a native of the North Wilkesboro area. She began her career in set design in Hickory, NC and relocated to the High Point area in 2000. As the only female owner of a commercial photography studio of its kind in the Triad area, Diana Parrish brings a long career of experience to her chosen field. Having spent a career as an interior designer, marketing director for two major North Carolina furniture manufacturers, and VP of Marketing for a major local commercial photography studio, Parrish opened her own studio in 2007. Diana Parrish Design and Photography currently employs 12 full time people including designer-stylists, photographers, retouchers, carpenters and a variety of other specialized personnel. In addition, the studio employs many freelance talents who work with the company on a regular basis; raising the team’s total to 20 or more persons most of year.
