When founder LaWaysha Thomas embarked on this exciting endeavor, she wanted to give the company a name that was unique as the product. “Photo Depot” was too plain and standard, so she decided to add a little flair. Thus, Foto Depot was born!
Thomas’ vision was to utilize her more than 25 years of management experience at a Fortune 15 company to launch a business that is exciting, fun, people oriented, and creates lasting memories. Utilizing her creativity and hobbies as a designer and photo enthusiast, Thomas decided to bring some excitement to the Tampa Bay Area. She researched photo equipment extensively before settling on designs she felt would offer her clients an over-the-top experience for capturing their most precious moments and memories.
Thomas spent many years managing and organizing corporate events, giving her keen understanding of how to delight even the most discerning of clients. She stands ready to work with clients to create engaging, exciting and memorable corporate events, weddings and private parties.
Thomas earned a B.S. in Business Professional Management from Nova Southeastern University. She has also completed marketing and leadership development programs attended, in part, through the University of Maryland, Pace University, and the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill).
