Mike Moreland's portfolio bursts apart at the seams with the work of more than 15 years in architecture, fashion, and advertising photography. The award-winning photographer's three-hour workshops, typically lead by two–four expert shutterbugs, teach neophytes and hobbyists the tricks and tools to snap professional-grade shots. After 45 minutes of instruction, students spend just over two hours honing their burgeoning skills, capturing images on their own DSLRs or with a chisel and stone tablet. Guests walk out of the sessions knowing how to manipulate light sensors, how to adjust shutter speeds with a special emphasis on nature photography, and the basics of studio lighting, wedding portraiture, and shooting in urban settings.

As charmingly anachronistic as trolleys may be, they move too fast for Pablo Aguilar, one of Capturing Savannah’s co-founders. So to capture the colors, lines, and ornamentation of Savannah’s 19th-century architectural wonders, he prefers to walk, leading groups on tours that blend the historical entertainment of a city tour with the skill set of a photography safari.
While ducking into 200-year-old nooks along Factors Walk, a onetime commerce area, Pablo and co-founder Brittany Nelson teach aspiring shutterbugs to take photos with “a clear purpose behind the shot.” The pair coach tour members to find aesthetically pleasing angles and to thoughtfully compose their images before shooting. Along with technique, they try to instill “a sense of nostalgia” in each photographer. “It’s all about the feeling,” Pablo says, “expressing the same feeling they felt [when they took] the photograph.”
Pablo and Britt previously lived in New York, Chicago, Austin, New England, and the Middle East, but both have fallen for the vibrancy and artistry Savannah draws from its history. For a glimpse of the city as seen through a lens at foot-speed, Capturing Savannah offers a gallery of Pablo and Britt’s tour photos.
Emily Joi’s passion for photography is unbound. She’ll go to any limits and shoot in any location at any time to get the right moments captured for posterity. She applies that fervor for the art form during portrait shoots for families, kids, and couples, as well as at events such as weddings, working closely with all clients to ensure they get the shots that bring out the best in them.
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
The mind tends to tamper with memories, embellishing elements while skirting around the fine details. Mega Pixels’s team of creative photographers knows that details are what make memories spring to life, what cause long-forgotten stories to be remembered and relived. They yearn to capture those details and hidden stories in every image they frame, wrangling symmetry, texture, depth of field, and a clever use of line into evocative shots. On-location photo shoots lead the photographers throughout Georgia and neighboring states to destinations chosen by their clients, who pose during scenic wedding shoots, graduation shoots, and portraits for the cover of their upcoming novel about a boy who learned to be more sensitive.
