Photographer David Firestine never runs out of places to snap his shots. Leafing through his portfolio, one finds David’s subjects standing in dumpsters, lying in the street, or simply posing pensively before some textured, abstract background. His lens demonstrates a flair for focus, blurring passing trains and approaching Cthulus in the background while the subjects in the forefront virtually leap out of the shot with startling crispness. David’s naturally creative energy motivates outside-the-box shots while his artistic eye assesses design, form, color, and tone. Mostly, he wants his clients to have fun, and he is willing to match them stride-for-stride in terms of nonconventionality, or rein in his flair and adjust his shots to match his client’s tastes and desires.
Hour-long photo sessions with Montenero's sensualist shutterbugs yield tasteful, alluring images. Sprightly retro pin-ups recall a time when exposed knees were thought to incite Communism, while more concupiscent boudoir photos awaken subjects' latent sultriness while they pout, preen, and lounge in lingerie. Budding vixens can choose between either a shoot at the photographers' Lawrenceville studio or one within the comfort of their own homes, finally unlocking the eroticism lurking within old leather recliners or double-basin bathroom sinks. Basic retouching services are included with the deal, which is personalized according to each subject's areas of confidence and results in an 8"x10" print.
Photographic Concepts' two experienced photographers frame, compose, and capture wall-worthy memories, employing classic lighting and tasteful backdrops. The flash-popping fiesta begins with a creative consultation, where clients can question the lens-wielders about backgrounds, props, and the color coordination of matching vegetable costumes, ensuring a smooth photo-snapping soiree. Gather the immediate family together for a 60-minute in-studio photo shoot, or let wizened high-schoolers go stag for senior portraits (a $75 value). Maternity pictures can showcase a mom-to-be's blossoming belly, and a new-baby photo invites infants to preen, primp, and pole-vault to glamorous stardom.
