GLAMOUR SHOTS OPENS 200TH STORE

 OKLAHOMA CITY, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Glamour Shots(R) Licensing announced today that it has opened its 200th Glamour Shots store near San Francisco in Marin County, Calif.
 The store, which opened in Northgate Mall, is owned by Brightstar Studios which will have 13 stores in the Bay area by July of 1993, employing 250 people. All Glamour Shots stores are franchises.
 Glamour Shots, based in Oklahoma City, is the largest and fastest growing chain of high fashion photography studios in the country. The company pioneered the concept of high fashion photography in malls with the opening of the first stores in Dallas and Houston in 1988. In 1992, the studios took over 2.3 million photographs. The company employs over 5,000 people nationwide.
 "The opening of our 200th store is a significant achievement for our corporation," said Jack Counts, Jr., president of Glamour Shots Licensing and Candid Color Systems, the photography processing laboratory for the chain. "At our present rate of growth we could very well exceed our expansion projections for 1993, which includes an additional 85 stores by the end of the year."
 Glamour Shots Licensing is projecting 450 stores nationwide by the end of 1995. They are currently expanding into Canada and Mexico and have begun negotiations for the European market.
