Pat Coniglio is shuttering his photography business within the next month, after running Coniglio Studios for 42 years.
Coniglio says the down economy has been a catalyst for the closing, but admits that his business actually started trailing off years ago, when he didn't make the transition to digital photography. He's now planning to retire.
"For the past five years, it's been getting worse and worse, just one thing after another," he says. "And this is the worst economic crisis I've ever seen."
