The media pros at Hourglass Media transform old recordings and photographs into high-quality digital files with their advanced, onsite equipment. During film transfers, a technician converts 8-milimetre and Super 8 film to uncompressed files on DVD, ensuring picture fidelity with 700 lines of resolution. Analog media such as audio cassettes, VHS tapes, and vinyl LPs metamorphose into any digital file format, allowing patrons to load old songs onto iPods, share home movies over the internet, and replace every sound on the family computer with an old recording of grandpa snoring. Slide and photo transfers pull the same trick with old pictures and custom video editing further polishes heirloom moving pictures or important present-day footage.

Photographer Krystle often says that she has an incurable case of TMI, or sharing too much information about herself. It’s a condition she never intends to treat, however, because her bubbly, outgoing personality only enhances the quality of her work. The owner and resident shutterbug of JustShootMe…Photography captures striking, on-location shots while putting clients at ease with her friendly demeanour, wacky sense of humour, and ability to mimic their favourite birdsongs. She loves to try new, creative ideas—nontraditional poses colour each of her shoots, which she captures with the help of natural light and a close friend of seven years: her Nikon camera. Though she specializes in family and couples photography, she also engages in wedding photography with a particular interest in destination weddings.
