TERRIBLE! Several interactions with one employee (only due to there bothersome business tactics) in particular, Lexi. Very bad attitude, rude, and nasty. Thinks she owns the beach. After the second rude interaction, which she was fully aware that she was not welcome at that point I called scopes and spoke to her manager, John. He advised me that he appreciated the feedback and assured me he would call me back once he spoke to her. Guess what? No call back. Which shows me they don't care about there potential customers and worse the community they do business in. I suppose my next call will be to the police if the harassment continues. Also, I plan to contact the city of Ocean City to express my dismay that the city allows this type of predatory and invasive business tactics to harass people on public beaches in there city.

Our kids love to get Scopes every year. It is a family vacation tradition. I get them back when I was young too. Ocean City is our dream place.

I did not purchase scopes this time around because I was too busy searching for my lost engagement ring in the sand. I had taken it off & placed it into my zippy pocket of my beach bag so that I wouldn't losewish it in the ocean. A very pleasant young man who called himself, "Walker," took the time to help me look for it and gathered people around us to help. After 30-45 minutes of hunting for it, "Walker" found it buried beneath the sand and presented it to me.He was wonderful and stayed optomistic the entire time. This is just another attempt to thank this young man. If the company reads this, you truly have a treasure of an employee!

If you get a photographer that understands that shadows don't look good on the face, you'll get some good shots. Their prices are not too bad. We paid 80 dollars for the CD and photo rights. For the scopes they are 9 dollars each except when you buy 6 then they are like 6 dollars each. Not too bad and LOTS OF FUN!

We went to the beach this summer on the East Coast and never heard of Telescope Pictures. When we decided to get them it was the best choice my wife and I made on the trip! The photographer was incredibly friendly and got our kids smiling more than we ever could! When we saw the pictures they were amazing. It's a great souvenir and we had such a great time getting them, something we'd definitely do again if we ever get back!

We used their services for evening family portraits on the beach. the photographer was great and the shots she took were amazing. But when we went to look at our pictures the next day, we were stunned that the packages STARTED at $250.00. And the only way to purchase ANY of the pictures was to buy a package. I was in tears as I had to leave these beautiful pictures of my family behind. The pictures were great, but beware that you will be spending A LOT of money.....

Telescope pictures (scopes) are an Ocean City classic. Photographers run up and down the beach, and offer to take your picture for free, then you go to the studio to view the photos in little "telescopes" that can be hung from a keychain, rearview mirror, etc. Usually vacation photos get thrown in a box or stuffed in a photo album you never look at, so this is a nice alternative.
The photographers know what they're doing, how to pose you, how to shoot, etc., and the pics generally come out very well. They can also be a little pushy, however, so if you're not interested, your best bet is to feign sleep so they'll leave you alone.
You're not obligated to buy the scopes, but the prices are fairly reasonable, and they usually offer packages, ex: buy 4 and get a discount. You certainly won't need the 15-20 scopes they'll have--one or two will suffice.
Overall, a cute souvenir for your trip!
