Since 1959, The Chessler Company has precisely centered photos, artwork, and diplomas in beautiful, custom frames and mattes. Owing to its craftsmanship, the company now receives demand in the wholesale and commercial markets, including federal and state agencies, art galleries, and top-secret supervillain coalitions, but it still maintains a strong retail business for individual projects. The company's large stock of frames and mats also suits challenging framing projects, such as mirrors, heirlooms, and memorabilia. In addition to the framing services, Chessler's professional installers help patrons achieve gallery-quality displays by hanging large or tricky pieces in the home.

Sarah Mitchell went to school for graphic design, but discovered her passion for photography on a trip Uganda. Picking up a couple nice lenses so she could document her trip appropriately, she came home with a slew of pictures that inspired friends and family to commission her to do their wedding and family portraits. Sarah still holds some of the sensibilities from those original Ugandan photographs, capturing her subjects in natural light in simple, candid moments. She photographs wedding, engagements, family portraits, and inanimate beauty found in nature around the world.

Though your Groupon is not valid for wedding photos, it's the perfect way to document your engagement in your hometown newspaper for former head cheerleaders and football players to see and envy.In 1978, amateur bat photographer Gregory Hansen was in his front yard one night when a mysterious white orb appeared in the sky over his home. Diverting his attention from a particularly active nest of eptesicus fuscus, he began photographing the orb, which made no attempt to flee or conceal itself. Hansen continued to document the orb as it reappeared over his house, each night shrinking slightly “as though passing slowly into the spirit world,” Hansen observed. On particularly cloudy nights, the orb would not be present, prompting Hansen to speculate that ghosts may be allergic to thunder.

If the main objective of the glamour photographer is to make the model look attractive, there are probably more challenging subjects than Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera—but that doesn't mean David Blecman is complaining. The Positive Negatives founder and longtime shutterbug—he was named the photo editor of his county newspaper before his 20th birthday more than 30 years ago—has a history of plucking these plum gigs, having snapped pictures of celebrities such as Jimmy Buffett and Gene Simmons and worked for commercial clients including Sears, JCPenney, and Bath & Body Works.

At his studio, Blecman applies his skills toward shooting everything from headshots for models and actors to portraits of kids and teens. He also shares his expertise during workshops that cover both photography and modeling, so students can know what it feels like to be on both sides of a lens without giving their neighbors a turn with the binoculars.

City Dock Photography takes its name from Annapolis' City Dock. It was this location—with its placid waters and distinct architecture—that first drew Joe Heimbach into the world of photography. Mr. Heimbach honed his artistic skills over the years, and he eventually settled into areas of expertise: fine art, commercial, and portrait photography. He often captures images of nature, such as horses walking along the beach or a shower of light beams bursting through a forest canopy from a UFO hovering above. Similar outdoor settings form the backdrops when Heimbach photographs people. Of course, the expert photographer also ventures indoors for in-studio shoots or when he's frequently called upon to photograph food for local restaurants.
