In 1988, Glamour Shots of Oklahoma City opened its first high fashion photography stores in Dallas and Houston.

Counts, who developed an interest in photography while a student at the University of Oklahoma, is president and owner of Candid Color Systems Inc., which is the trademark owner and licensor of both Party Pics and Glamour Shots High Fashion Photography.
