Curiouser & Curiouser - September 2016



Curiouser & Curiouser... What's this all about?


I am naturally a curious person, and so naturally I ask a lot of questions.  I bet there's a few people out there like me... So... what do you want to know?

We're photographers, we're artists, we run a business, we have families and have had some pretty crazy cool life experiences!  And you can ask us anything- from "What kind of camera do you use?" to "What's your favorite local restaurant" to "If monkeys could fly, where's the first place they would go?", and well, you get the gist... we're open to anything!  We may or may not respond to each and every question, but we will pick one or two to feature in our next newsletter... and if your question gets featured, we'll send you something!  I won't promise what, but I think you'll like it, and if you don't... well, I guess you can give it away and look like a really nice person.  Hey, what do you have to lose?

So play along and submit your question to and we'll have some fun getting to know each other!  Can't wait to see who comes up with something good!

Get curious and ponder away!!

Latte, tea, chai, hot cocoa.. your call!  Just a little token to say, "Well done" for figuring out our brain teaser.

Meet "the new guy"...

Phil White

In fall of 2014, Phil White, formerly of Phil White Photography took a leap of faith to come join the team at the now, 8th Street Studio. Phil has been in the industry for well over 20 years, spending a portion of that as the lab and print manager for Idaho Camera. Phil is well versed in both the technical and the artistry portion of photography.

As a career photographer, Phil White has earned his Master of Photography with the Professional Photographers of America. He also serves as a board member for Professional Photographers of Idaho and Boise Music Week and has won many awards on both a local and international level. Phil continues to pursue his love of the arts and currently spends most of his time managing CsiPhotoDesign and helping Kelly keep her head on straight when things get crazy!

Phil has a low key and laid back approach that contrasts well with Kelly's high energy enthusiasm. He is a great listener and works very hard to create custom artwork for families with older children and high school seniors, especially when it comes to creating unique sports composites for high school athletes! Phil also works well with Old Hollywood style lighting which we incorporate into our Bringing Classy Back line. Bringing Classy Back is a fashionable fusion of tasteful, approachable glamour and boudoir (you know, the stuff you're not afraid to show your neighbor) with a unique vintage lighting style and a modern twist! Looking forward to showing more of these off soon! Please check out our soon to be updated Csi Photo Design website for more information!
