From the Paper:

"The Picture Rooms is a newly opened photography gallery in Dublin City. It has been working since mid 2011 and it represents a relevant addition to Temple Bar, Dublin (Bio-The Picture Rooms, 2013). Its business philosophy adheres to the idea of combining the unique features and capacities of a photography studio and a gallery. In this way, the Picture Rooms demonstrates a rather simple and creative business philosophy focused on targeting different customer segments in the cosmopolitan city of Dublin. Photographers Martin O'Leary and Aidan Beatty own and effectively run the Picture Rooms. In an attempt to consider the business philosophical aspects of the company's strategy, it is important to note that two relevant dimensions dominate it, in particular the idea to capture various photography images of individuals and to present different photography products for selling. Visitors of the Picture Rooms are enabled with a unique opportunity to experience distinct forms of contemporary art in the heart of Dublin City.
"The owners and photographers of the respective photography gallery constantly make sure to represent a creative approach towards the diverse needs and expectations of clients. As an integral part of the business philosophy of the Picture Rooms, O'Leary and Beatty are extensively committed to satisfy the strict demands of clients that emerge as one of the assets of the company (Bio-The Picture Rooms, 2013). The Picture Rooms is an organisation that succeeds in offering different services to its customers, which means that its business philosophy is solely oriented towards satisfying their tastes in terms of art. The photographers running the company are extremely passionate to engage in new projects and challenges. Therefore, they accept every photography assignment with strong willingness to comply with the clients' specific requirements (The Picture Rooms, 2013). At the same time, they allow other contemporary artists to exhibit their artworks in the gallery."
