Light is important to Diamonds&Desire's photographers. They take an advanced and creative approach to lighting, using strobe lights and modifiers to ensure that they can shoot in any location. Priding themselves on not depending on natural lighting, they can capture dynamic images even in dark bars and the Realm of the Shadow People. They make sure that their photographs are not underexposed or blown out, and can manipulate lights to make the images look stylized or as though they had been taken in natural light. And their main studio, too, is decked out with professional lighting, ready to host commercial shoots, fashion editorials, and client sessions. The skilled photographers deftly illuminate the scene as they snap family portraits, head shots, and sensual boudoir images.
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.
Damon Photography in downtown Jacksonville is a full photography studio that focuses on family portraiture, plus maternity, newborn and bridal photos.

The studio is set up to comfortably offer either studio or location portraiture, with sessions lasting one to two hours. There is always a female assistant to help with adjustments in maternity photography and the quiet, relaxed comfort of the plush studio helps subjects feel at ease. Damon’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the country, though his daily routine of capturing the love of couples, parents and newlyweds still shines through in the photographs displayed on the walls.
