This created a showcase for physical culture in the Rocky Mountain region. Today Western Photography Guild is operated by Don Whitman's family. Mainly Don's nephew Andy Dimler and his daughter Myra. Assisted by Don's niece Elisa Townsend. Although models are no longer photographed, high quality prints and photo sets are still produced.
