The frames at J. Reznik Studios don't just immortalize old photographs and new college diplomas; they also keep the memories of fallen heroes alive. As the studio's in-house artist, Jodi Reznik has eased the pain of lost loved ones for dozens of families?such as those of Suffolk County police officer Glen Ciano and NYPD officer Russel Timoshenko?by memorializing them with brush strokes on canvas. Equal parts frame shop, gallery, and conversation space, the studio beckons art lovers of all stripes to interact with Jodi and her husband, Jeff, while they browse her work or select a frame for an existing piece. Expert print makers also enlarge and emblazon images on paper and canvas to forge eye-catching photo gifts, and staffers specializing in flower preservation enshrine bouquets from weddings or punish daisies with unpaid gambling debts behind quality glass. J. Reznik Studios has impressed not only walk-in customers, but online clients as well, earning an 86% customer-approval rating from Groupon users.
Our parent company was started in 1929 as a manufacturer and importer. The company Yale Picture Frames and Moulding were at the forefront of custom picture framing. In 2005 we went online and have created one of the premier Custom Picture Framing applications available online today.
Brock Graham has shot a documentary about pro-democracy street protesters in Tblisi, Georgia, as well as edited a short documentary entitled In The Shadow of Everest about the work of fellow artist and photographer Tom Wool, which ultimately became a companion piece to Mr. Wool's exhibition in the Rubin Museum of Art. Graham has also edited footage for MTV and promos for This American Life. But museums, televisions, and mirrors hung opposite televisions aren't the only showcases for the accomplished artist's creativity. You can find his work in plenty of photo albums as well.
In addition to working as a director, Graham arranges on-location photo shoots. As with documentaries, he brings a sense of realism to his photographs. Whether posed or unstructured, these shots express the true personalities and emotions of their subjects, capturing smiles between parents and kids, kisses between brides and grooms, and generation gaps between the branches of family trees.
Before the archivists of Art and Framing Gallery begin a project, they slip on pairs of cotton gloves. By sheathing their hands, they guard against fingerprints and finger-paints. Their dedication to museum-quality workmanship shines through each project, whether it's a same-day framing job or a standard three- to seven-day order.
In Art and Framing Gallery's showrooms, walls display more than 3,000 frame samples and acre upon acre of mats. Ready-made framed mirrors and artwork also share this space, which connects to in-house workshops. Here, craftsmen cut custom glass and piece together each project. They skillfully preserve artwork and portraits and excel with projects that require special care. They encase delicate antiques in UV-protective glass and display sports jerseys in cases that ward off wrinkling and grass stains.
For more than 20 years, the professional photographers at Charlie's Angels Photography have worked to capture images that not only preserve memories but also incorporate artistic touches. Their digital galleries boast shots from larger occasions such as weddings and runway shows to private events such as boudoir and portrait sessions. Their staff also includes professional makeup artists, who can prep subjects for shoots or gussy up complexions before weddings or high-school-graduation re-enactments.
