In 1984 I began buying, selling, brokering and appraising used photo finishing equipment under the expert guidance of Mr. Charles Kenmir. Subsequent to Mr. Kenmir's retirement I began CRES Imaging, LLC bringing a background in traditional photo processing equipment combined with a knowledge of the digital imaging equipment that has swept the industry.

CRES Imaging, LLC is located in Lake Stevens, WA approximately 40 miles northeast of Seattle, WA. Lake Stevens is a 1040 acre natural lake with nearly 8 miles of shoreline.

It is the goal of CRES Imaging, LLC to provide the high standards of professionalism and trust that were the cornerstone of my mentors business philosophy.

Welcome to Lake Stevens

The greater Lake Stevens area, located in Snohomish County 38 miles north of Seattle and eight miles east of Everett, Washington, is centered around a 1,040 acre natural lake with eight miles of shoreline. Area residents enjoy fishing, water-skiing, sailing, sailboarding, canoeing and swimming on the lake, surrounded by views of the nearby Cascade Mountains and the abundant greenery of local parks and lakeside residential lots.
