For more than 17 years, the photographers at Fashion Shots have devoted every inch of their 3,500-square-foot studio, to letting ladies feel sexy and confident, with a theater viewing room complete with red carpet, and a makeup and dressing room area. During boudoir and glamour shoots, women strike sultry poses with female photographers under artfully arranged lighting, rotating through different outfits and getting primped by onsite hairstylists and makeup artists. Afterward, the team retouches shots to erase any blemishes or photo-bombing ghosts.

Matthew Turri traces his interest in photography all the way back to his birth in Rochester, New York, which is also home to the headquarters of Kodak. It would appear that some Kodachrome bonded with his DNA, as he focused heavily on picture-taking in high school, eventually pursuing photojournalism at the University at Albany-SUNY. Since then, Turri aimed his aperture as an intern for the New York legislature, a staff photographer for a daily newspaper, and a freelancer for numerous weddings and events. Now in full command of his own prowess, Turri lends his services to families romping in the sand and superstitious brides and grooms sharing drinks on the opposite sides of a door.
The professional photographers at Target Portrait Studios capture paramount moments in premier lighting with high-tech digital cameras and a choice of vivid background images. After clients discuss pose preferences with their portraitist, subjects take the stage for approximately 10 minutes of flashing bulbs, bright smiles, and focused lenses. Clients are welcome to bring props and shadow puppets from home, and after choosing a background, they can further customize each image with one of the studio's props, if desired.
Within Striking Poses' studio, clients can travel anywhere—the beach, say, or back in time to the glamorous era of early Hollywood. To set these scenes, Striking Poses' team relies on its selection of detailed backdrops, as well as soft boxes that conjure dramatic lighting effects. That said, the studio also accommodates sessions in a naturally lit outdoor space—whether it be for modeling shoots, family portrait sessions, or passport photos. As each photo is snapped, it appears on the studio's 27-inch monitor, allowing clients to better adjust the shoot around their personal visions. To preserve those visions, Striking Poses' crew creates a variety of products, including canvas wraps and and enlargements.
