Behind the clicking shutters of Natural Beauty Boudoir's cameras stands J.A. Cabrera, an artist with more than 20 years of experience in beauty photography. Unlike Santa's elves, Cabrera shares his craft with all ages, and the flashes of the photographer's camera have illuminated the sultry looks of 18- and 67-year-olds alike. During these sessions, the certified photographer puts clients at ease and coaches them into poses that will accentuate their best features. Stolen glances, pouts, and satin-and-lace clown noses freeze within the camera lens in vibrant colors or artistic black-and-white shots. All these images are immediately viewable post-session, and clients can request retouching to expunge blemishes.
Led by well-traveled shutterbug Marguerite Beaty, Crea8fotos' staff instructs owners of DSLR cameras how to professionally operate their equipment. During Introduction to Digital Photography I, Marguerite reveals how camera settings can manipulate light quality and image sharpness and trains students to control focus, particularly in the event of a photo bomb by sasquatch. After studying the camera's various knobs and switches, students compose and frame shots to produce their own eye-catching photos.
It wasn't until his teens that Puerto Rican native Rey Monroig seriously began playing the drums like his father, an accomplished percussionist. Music is still an essential part of his artistic life, but these days he splits his time behind the kit and behind the lens at Rey Monroig Photography. The same free-spirited yet controlled style that distinguishes Rey's drumming is evident in his photography, whether he's shooting families, expectant moms, or models. To bridge the gap between his two artistic specialties, Rey also photographs promotional stills, album covers, and live performances for fellow musicians.
Wherever Rusty Arrondo aims his camera's lens, he seems to find a compelling image to capture. Some might call this serendipity, but those familiar with the art of photography know that it's a skill, and one that's not easy to master. Rusty invites all kinds of clients into his Miami studio, though he's especially interested in fashion, boudoir, and figurative black-and-white photography.
