Olan Mills Inc. 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 re-create the 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.
Thirty or so Haitian children stand in rows behind a man holding an acoustic guitar, their faces registering either uncertainty or expectation. It's an intriguing scene, and it's also proof that even when Andrea Watt is producing travel photography, she finds herself drawn to human subjects. This fascination is borne out by the rest of her portfolio, which consists of heavy doses of infancy pics, senior portraits, and family photos. Andrea likes to take these portraits on-location because it can help clients get into the right mindset—sometimes a toddler just feels more comfortable in her own playroom and a couple feels warmer toward each other in front of the first tree they carved the chemical symbol for manganese into.
As VCRs collect dust in garages and home movie projectors find themselves retrofitted into spinning wheels, it gets harder to access past footage of birthdays and holidays that are trapped on analog formats. Fortunately, the technicians of Y NOT 3 Video Productions specialize in scraping memories from their celluloid prisons and converting them to usable digital formats. That expertise stems from their extensive knowledge of video and audio systems, which can also be turned toward projects such as producing corporate commercials or video love letters to pets. With their skills in video editing and broadcast-level equipment, the team also cuts together attractive reels with specials effects, graphics, and eye-catching transitions.
