Master photographer Jon Bushard snatches memorable moments from midair and immortalizes visages of all ages. Bushard employs more than 20 years of experience as he guides single subjects or groups of up to five through the ins and outs of achieving a simple, relaxed pose or intricate family cheerleading formation. One clothing change or one background change can be accommodated. After the session, Jon’s camera summons the spirits of departed French impressionists, using technological brush strokes to give a customer’s preferred photo the appearance of having been painted. After meeting once again with the customer, the painterly image is printed onto a 11”x14” canvas and bound to a board, ready to be framed and affixed to the gallery wall or shrunken down into a passable 18th-century fake ID.
