WILTON – Mark Bolles says he can easily remember that day in 2008, when the news broke that stock markets had “crashed.”
The next day, Bolles decided to forge ahead anyway and start his new photography and graphics business in a home studio near Wilton’s Gavin Park.
For several months, he recalled, business was slow. But Bolles never lost faith that his original vision would stand the test of time.
“Inside of 10 years, technology has really changed a lot and communication as well,” Bolles explained to a small crowd that had gathered in his basement studio on Friday, April 27 for a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Earlier this year, Bolles rebranded his company as Super Source Media LLC, which specializes in photographic, video and print production. He said that having “all of the services under one roof” is most helpful to his long-term success.
Bolles recently teamed up with Mariah Singleton to assist him with video editing and various other aspects of the business, saying she is “fantastic with a camera.”
The tech-savvy efforts made by Singleton have enabled a smooth “transitioning” to quality video production, Bolles added.
Last year, Saratoga Springs Mayor Meg Kelly hired Bolles to make promotional videos during her somewhat contentious political race.
“My videos were top-notch during the campaign,” Kelly admitted at the ribbon cutting.
From the beginning, Bolles also has partnered with local artist Nick Martinez to capture the essence of the equine culture that surrounds the Saratoga Race Course.
According to Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce Membership Director Joseph Russell, Super Source Media is officially a new chamber member. But he explained that a “tremendous relationship” with Bolles already exists.
Most chamber members recognize Bolles because of his active involvement in the city’s business community as a photographer—oftentimes for Saratoga TODAY.
Russell added that Bolles would be invited to chamber events for networking purposes, and that Super Source Media would be further assisted by increased exposure through the chamber’s website and social media links.
