Snapping evocative, story-telling pictures is more than a profession to photographer Jay Mayer. It's a family tradition. Long before Jay took the reigns of Trenton Photography, which was established by his family more than 50 years ago, he spent his entire childhood surrounded by photographers who frequently discussed their own work. This cultivated Jay's deep love and appreciation for the art. Today, he works closely with his clients to capture both noteworthy and natural moments during his photo shoots. Jay and his team wield their digital cameras for a wide array of occasions, including family portraits, pet sessions, or monumental events such as weddings, communions and graduations. They can also perform videography services.
Digital expert Anthony McCall transmutes deteriorating VHS tapes and other obsolete media onto long-lasting archival DVDs.

Chapters are inserted automatically, making it easier to impress dates with marathon finish-line footage without having to fast-forward through grade-school shot-for-shot remakes of The Seventh Seal.

The photographers at Casual Candids Photography rely on photojournalistic techniques to capture candid, visually striking images that tell a story.

These events can be more formally commemorated in Casual Candids' art books, which are built on the studio's templates and individually personalized.
Countless trees fly by under your feet as you soar hundreds of feet above the ground. Suddenly, the forest floor below opens up into a gorge. At Red River Gorge Zipline, riders witness this incredible sight on regular canopy tours set amid the picturesque wilderness of Daniel Boone National Forest. The system's ziplines span more than 4,000 feet above the forest canopy, with the longest reaching about 1,900 feet in length. At the end of the tour, dual racing ziplines send riders charging down from more than 200 feet above the ground, and reaching speeds exceeding 50 mph. All of Red River Gorge Zipline's guests are strapped into harnesses for the duration of their tours, while helmet cams document their adventure.
