Why Great Image

Why Great Image

Great Image is a prime mover in the photo and digital imaging industry. They are known for excellent, professional, reliably fast and creative photography services. It has built a solid reputation in the business over the last 34 years.

Every Filipino mall-goer is definitely familiar with Great Image. It was established in 1983 by a very enterprising couple, Mr. Robert ‘Boss Bob’ Palomo and Ms. Evelyn ‘Toots’ Palomo, out of sheer hobby and interest that they both shared.

Knowing the penchant of Filipinos to capture the best and happiest moments in their lives in a photo or video—be it weddings, birthdays, baptisms, graduation or a simple barkada get-together—makes a photo/video business quite a promising investment. What started out as a mere hobby of a fun-loving couple grew into a lucrative business venture.

The first outlet was located in SM Cubao. The couple’s great teamwork grew the business from a simple photo studio to a profitable, one-stop professional photo and video services hub. And because Great Image has earned a good name with its top sales performance, big shopping malls like Ayala Malls, SM and Robinsons made sure an outlet is present in their shopping centers.

At present, Great Image has 55 company-owned branches, making it the country’s largest chain of digital photo studios. These outlets are located in the following commercial centers:
