Infinite Min Photos snaps elegant rectangular representations of families, kids, mothers-to-be, pets, and other corporeal subjects. Grab some friends, family members, or a pet hedgehog's family members and head to Infinite Min's studio, where a skilled shutterbug will apply makeup and beautifying prep-work if desired. The lens-wrangling session has no set time-limit, lasting until the photographer has captured the subject's desired look or the camera becomes eligible for overtime pay. After running through customary poses and synchronized imitations of the Fonz, customers receive 25 3"x5" prints of one or more poses, plus a CD stuffed with retouched, digitally remastered versions of those same 25 images. Photo shoots can be scheduled between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

3-D/4-D ultrasounds at Stork Snapshots offer a crystal-clear view of a fetus’ face as he or she doggy paddles around in the womb. Mothers-to-be between 24 and 36 weeks pregnant meet with a certified ultrasound technician in a comfortable setting that eschews the cold sterility and derisive clowns of a hospital. The spacious, physician-owned studio accommodates up to four additional guests as stunning images reveal active offspring sucking their thumbs and wiggling their toes. After the session concludes, its memory remains in video form on a DVD, still images on a CD-ROM, and on glossy prints.
It's a big leap from the bustle of an athletic field to the solitude of a darkroom, but Calumet Photographic made the transition seamlessly more than 70 years ago. From its origins as a Chicago sporting-goods store, the company evolved into a one-stop shop for cameras and darkroom equipment and eventually into an innovator of photographic technology. In the 1960s, Calumet's most brilliant minds were behind the development of the Caltar large-format-lens line and nitrogen burst film.
Today, Calumet Photographic continues to manufacture and sell professional photographic products and software across the globe, boasting more than 25 retail stores throughout the US and Europe. Their shops abound with both new and used high-quality cameras and equipment, rental gear, and knowledgeable technicians eager to help customers find the right equipment for the job. The company’s extensive online catalog enables shoppers to purchase equipment from around the world and have it shipped directly to their home, studio, or mall photo booth they’ve claimed as a studio.
When A Video Memories began in 1981, its videography team strived to create something special for each wedding it covered. After ceremonies, they'd swiftly cut together a 60-photo montage with footage from that morning's nuptials, and then screen the finished product during dinner that night. These days, Final Cut Pro expedites A Video Memories' editing process, while cameras now capture every vow and kiss with HD crispness. A Video Memories' crew still assembles montages, though its services have since expanded to include transferring film onto DVDs and assembling original commercials for local businesses.
