In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a one-hour photo session, an image DVD with a total of 10 images (five edited high-res photos, as well as low-res versions for social networking sites), and a password-protected website with a $50 print credit from RBF Photography (a $425 value). Swing by one of six locations in St. Pete, Clearwater, Old Hyde Park Village, Ybor City, University of Tampa, or Safety Harbor.
Brian and Rebecca Fulton are a husband-and-wife duo that decided to turn their image-making passion into a full-time job. Bring up to three buddies or fashion-forward centaurs and the two shutterbugs will capture your best side during a one-hour photo shoot. The Fultons use high-end equipment—including Canon DSLRs and an Elinchrom portable lighting system—to slice meaty moments out of reality's carcass and grill them into images of the highest possible caliber. Along with a full array of online and digital copies, you can also adorn office desks and sleeping in-laws with good old-fashioned prints of your favorite shots. Pricing for prints varies by image size; use your $50 photo credit for a 4''x6'' ($3.95), 5''x7'' ($9.95), 8''x10'' ($19.95), 11''x14'' ($45.95), or four wallet-sized portraits ($9.95). RBF Photography dispenses prints with matte or glossy finishes.
