After 28 years of service to residents and institutions in the Delaware Valley, George A. Butler Jr., C.P.P., has announced the closing of Butler Prestige Photography, at 6338 Germantown Ave., on Aug. 26.

Quality, service, integrity and professionalism have been the cornerstone of this Germantown landmark since 1988. Butler said he has considered it a great honor and privilege to have captured and preserved the personalities, relationships, milestones and lifestyles of thousands of Delaware Valley individuals and families.

In 1993 Butler was one of only three Philadelphia-based professional photographers (and the very first African American) to become a Certified Professional Photographer (C.P.P) through Professional Photographers of America, the world’s leading certification agency of imaging professionals. Less than 3 percent of professional photographers worldwide have this distinction.

If you are a former client of Butler Prestige Photography, please phone Butler at 215-849-9393 to obtain your film/negative, digital files, and/or sample photographs from him before they are discarded for good.

Butler, who started as an enthusiast and converted his love of photography into a full-service photography occupation, said he was returning to the “sheer fun and excitement of just taking photographs as a serious hobby.”
