Kellye Marcell has always loved photography, especially as a means of preserving memories. She strives to capture moments in time that don't feel posed or scripted, preferring to snap shots of folks interacting in a authentic and caring way, whether she's photographing a couple canoodling as they soak in a sunset or kids romping in a park with their parents. To do this, she often shoots on-location at local parks or her clients' homes, so her subjects feel most comfortable in their surroundings. Of course, she capably snaps posed shots, too, for occasions that call for them, such weddings or mime conventions.

Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.

Whenever violent outbreaks and natural disasters strike, ISI Training Center's team of security specialists mobilizes on the ground to protect private properties and individuals caught in high-risk areas. Drawing from this firsthand experience, ISI Training Center's crew—many of whom are military veterans versed in specialties such as tactical response and combat training—use a fast-paced style to teach students how to safely handle high-stress combat situations. Since 1993, instructors have prepped soldiers with mission-specific combat training at a 25-acre facility that incorporates role-playing and simulators that recreate realistic combat environments. Law-enforcement officers and first responders undergo similarly experiential training to enrich their tactical techniques for handling hostile conditions.

Over his 25-year career in snapshottery, Jimmy Loyd has accumulated an impressive list of skills as freelance photojournalist for the Houston Chronicle, portraitist, and studio owner. An early adapter to the digital-camera revolution, he can capture digital or analog family portraits, professional headshots, and in-the-moment sports images with ease. Loyd also employs his expertise in intermittently scheduled classes and photo tours, which might occur on-location at the Houston Zoo or, for more candid shots, out in the wilderness where animals don't have access to stylists.
