Flash's Studio got it's name in 1932 from Mr. Forrest Flashman. Mr. Flashman purchased Lewis Studio and renamed it, Flash's.

Flashman only stayed in Red Lodge for five years, mostly selling hand made black and white scenic postcards of the Beartooth Highway.  When Kathrine Psenda returned to Red Lodge, after assisting Nellie Stockbridge at Nellie's studio in Wallace Idaho, Flashman made Katie an offer that she could not refuse.

Kathrine Psenda purchased the studio in 1938.  After all, she had started her photographic career in 1922 for Lewis Studio at the age of 16.
