Simple, sincere, chic. It's photojournalism at its best. I love working with rustic backgrounds, cityscapes and anything unusual. My goal is to bring out the "real" emotions with couples, families, children and gruaduating seniors.

When it was founded in 1987, Frame Central was a social hub for artists, and was even curiously named for facial hair. However, Beard Outlet has since morphed into a seven-location franchise, dedicated to simplifying the framing process. The shops’ onsite stock of matboard, frame moulding, and other key supplies ensures speedy DIY framing projects—which visitors can complete in an hour—and single-day professional framing. An array of pre-framed mirrors and artwork allows shoppers to enhance their blank walls without taping a napping friend to them. Shoppers can also stock up on framing supplies such as case glass and hanging hardware.
Since 1990, Sportraits's photographers have captured sports teams, individual players, and event attendees with a variety of photography services. They visually memorialize squads' roster portraits in their studio or on location, and transplant their visages onto prints, buttons, and statuettes. After digitally editing shots of club, team, and band members, they hand over eye-catching tableaus for use as backdrops for football games, gymnastics matches, or hot-dog-eating championships.
The photography haven's event photo boutiques present a fun alternative to traditional photo booths at parties, as they allow groups of guests to pose in front of custom backgrounds under the skilled eye of a photographer. Boutique rentals can be further customized with the addition of prints and props such as hats and glasses.
Before Sandy Horvath retired from his career as a sales manager, he spent his spare time chronicling the lives of his loved ones and documenting his own travels throughout the world. Over time, his love for his craft blossomed into a thirst to become an admired photographer, so Sandy started submitting his action-packed sports photos to newspapers and magazines. With the publication of his work came professional status and a desire to share his knowledge with others. His first opportunity arose in 2009 when the Si View Metropolitan Park District asked him to teach a class. Soon after, the Issaquah Parks District clamored for Sandy's expertise; he now has over 1600 Club SnapShot students and more joining every day.
Today, Sandy teaches students of all ages and skill levels how to transform snapshots into high-quality pictures with lenses, settings, and exposures during his basic, advanced, and creative classes. He loves helping novice shutterbugs abandon automatic settings?the training wheels of photography?and create memorable images with nothing but manual settings and high-tech freeze rays. Sandy also transforms his own work into high-dynamic-range photo art and gallery-wrapped canvases. Students may do the same to decorate their homes, give as gifts, or hang inside windows to hide nature's flaws.
After four years as an adventure photographer, Jane Speleers founded The Royal Squirrel Photography in 2011. The name isn't just jokey—reverence for nature inspires the eco-conscious photographer to only distribute paperless agreements to her clients and primarily share images in online galleries or on DVDs. Not surprisingly, that reverence also finds its way into Jane's photographs, whose compositions are simultaneously preoccupied with humans and the magnificent landscapes behind them. Soaring tree branches and expansive stretches of blue sky tower above engaged couples and expectant moms in some pictures, while others home in on grinning kids and embracing families.
