With 40 years of experience between them, the shutterbug husband and wife duo of Brent and Dawn capture life's grandest moments through their work at Angela Clifton Photography. Specializing in on-location shoots illuminated by natural light, they capture the moments that cell phones, or ever the most tenured court painter, can't do justice to. Baby's first steps. The glow of an expectant mother. The playful frolics of a new pet. The family's first trip to the beach. These are brief moment's that the photographers make timeless.
For weddings and engagements, Brent and Dawn's photographs document the romance of two hearts beating at once, and for aspiring models and actors, they create headshots that practically leap into the hands of casting directors. For those who want to understand the art and mechanics of family photography, Angela Clifton Photography offers photo classes that build upon the technical aspects of lenses, lighting, and composition, and include tips on how to work with families for the perfect shot.
The National Association of Photoshop Professionals wants to put photographers on the moon, or at least give them the tools to make it look like they were there. Since 1993, this team of Photoshop enthusiasts, led by renowned Photoshop author Scott Kelby, has focused their passion for photo editing into creating a slew of products that can enhance users' editing skills.
Beginners or seasoned pros can get help from DVDs, videos, online tutorials, books, or the association's online magazine, Photoshop User. The association also imparts helpful tips and techniques to groups large and small during conferences and seminars that are held all around the world since they have not yet mastered the art of public speaking through telepathy.
Local power couple Heidrun and Alan Divers spent the first ten years of their marriage searching for a business model that they could build side by side and that would cultivate their creative impulses. Today, they oversee The Great Frame Up’s three area studios, which cover artwork and photos with thousands of frame and matte combinations and prevent 3D keepsakes and sports memorabilia from selling themselves on e-Bay by enshrouding them in shadowboxes and acrylic cases. Framing jobs take place entirely on-site at each location, ensuring a speedy turnaround on projects and a personal guarantee on all craftsmanship. The Great Frame Up’s website offers tips and trends to help customers navigate the process, from choosing frames to hanging and arranging finished pieces.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100), personalized jerseys glisten (most for under $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24x36 pieces are under $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.

Hannah Reyes Photography always had a creative streak in her, but the birth of her son inspired her to turn her to take more photographs—and eventually pursue it as a career. Now she chronicles memories and milestones outside for other families and children, using natural light to give crisp color to her portraits. As she meanders through fields and trees with her clients, she usually gets things started with a few suggestions on poses, but ultimately she aims to capture all the candid smiles in between. She also has a penchant for including the sun in her photos for the beautiful effects it creates as it tries to hide from the camera.
