Randy Davis’s 20 years of experience behind the lens has earned him numerous awards, a teaching position at the Antonelli Institute, certification from the Professional Photographers of America, and frequent appearances as a photo competition judge. He draws upon all of these experiences during each photo shoot as he aims to capture elegant, fine-art portraits of families, high-school seniors, and wedding parties. Before each session, he thoroughly consults with subjects to determine a shoot location that holds significance, whether it be a client’s home, a sentimental site, or the spot where Thomas Jefferson invented the high-five. After snapping and skillfully retouching shots, he voyages to clients' homes for an audio-visual imaging presentation of each photo set to music, projecting images to demonstrate how they might appear hanging on a wall. He also snaps shots on his own turf, a 2,500-square-foot studio where he often conducts sensual boudoir photo shoots designed to boost women's confidence.
Photographer Frank Barbera wields his camera to capture both candid and posed moments between loved ones, his snap-happy skills earning him a nomination for Best Photographer in the 2010 Philly Hot List. Pre-photo session, Frank holds an in-studio consultation with clients to discuss locations, wardrobe, and portrait ideas before scheduling an appointment to head to the desired destination. Whether snapping pictures of a small family, a newly engaged couple, or a marching band making a human pyramid, the experienced shutterbug freezes frame-worthy moments, later projecting the images onto a large screen so subjects can select their favorite. The group receives one 8"x10" and one 5"x7" print of the same pose, perfect for gracing walls or headlining the monthly family newsletter.
