For two decades, Harry Menedjian, the videographer at Long Term Memories, spent time working on the developing and editing side of the film industry. In 1989, he branched off into a new endeavor that put him behind the camera.
Now, he captures the first kiss between a new husband and wife, the joyful celebration of a baptism, and the fleeting disappointment on a birthday boy's face when he realizes that he didn't turn into Superman after blowing out his candles. He takes all that footage, edits it down, and puts it on high-definition DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
Growing up as the son of a theater actor and a concert clarinetist, Josh Cohen, owner of JoshCohenPhotography, developed a passion for the arts. Inspired by both photojournalists and more traditional artists, Cohen combines both technique and emotion in his photos.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
The photographers at Photo Perfections bring fantasies to life with costume-clad portraiture set to digitally imposed fantasy backdrops. Kids and pregnant women masquerading as angels or fairies are transported to the clouds or magical forests. The enhanced photos are then available on postcards, prints, and calendars.
Iconic Pinups's skilled photographers capture gorgeous shots while unleashing customers' inner femme fatales. Before the shoot, subjects don their own outfits or borrow some from the studio's collection of vintage-style pantsless pants, then bask in full makeup and hairstyling to help them transform into midcentury pinup beauties. Brandishing eggbeaters in the vintage kitchen or donning cowboy boots before grabbing a guitar and sprawling across a bed, women of all shapes and sizes are led by the photographers through a series of provocative poses during each shoot. In addition to private sessions, the studio also hosts pinup parties, dolling up ladies for special events such as bachelorette and birthday parties.
