Blake Dieters stalks his prey like a seasoned hunter, but his target isn’t big game. Behind the lens of his trusty camera, he bags the fleeting memories and precious keepsakes that gave his company its name. Citing the portraits of Arnold Newman, Annie Leibovitz, and Robert Mapplethorpe as his inspiration, Blake renders subjects in striking black-and-white tableaus during individual and group sittings. Though he stages most photo shoots inside his studio, his love of Colorado's wilderness draws him outside for on-location photo shoots as well. After the sessions end and the subjects pick their poses, Blake prints the digitally edited photos onto professional-grade, luster-finish paper suitable for framing or use in a very expensive game of paper football.

As she grew, her photophilia led to a career in graphic design, which she now juggles on a freelance basis with her passion for photography. During on-location photo shoots, Gina captures heartfelt moments between family members. Then, back at her studio, she uses her design talents to turn them into professional-quality holiday cards.
Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $9.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $3.99 value).
