With a decade of experience, Robert Greenfield helms RG Insights Photography, where he and his team cover all the nooks and niches of photography. They shoot everything from family portraits to fashion shoots and weddings, as well as sporting and musical events, nature, and pets. The image experts can even help marketing companies create catalogs of stock footage, taking the most elegant possible pictures of company stock certificates. Their skills extend to the edit room, where they apply artful touches, such as areas of color within otherwise black-and-white images. Their technical know-how also enables them to recover images from SD cards and print photos on phone cases and iPad folios. They plan to soon offer photography classes for small groups, ensuring personalized attention.
After the local camera shop went out of business, customers contacted Ron Henges, the building's manager, about picking up their finished prints and repaired cameras. In the process of helping fill these last orders, customers recommended Ron open his own camera store to fill the need in the community. More than 30 years later, Creve Coeur Camera continues to serve and educate its customers through nine area locations, including a 12,000-square-foot flagship store. The shops supply and repair top-of-the-line cameras and photographic equipment and timely print services and teach how to craft charismatic images through a broad curriculum of classes.
Since 1984, Apple Studio has brought out women’s most sensual, playful, and confident natures during romantic portrait sessions taken in an inclusive, relaxed environment. Before each shoot begins, friendly photographers help put nerves at ease by taking clients through past work to find the most appropriate style to match their comfort level and personality. As subjects lie in various flattering poses—the studio recommends bringing four to five outfits, from favorite lingerie to full scuba gear—soft lighting and strategic camera angles enhance each shot, resulting in a series of scintillating, tasteful vignettes. Pictures are typically ready in about two weeks, available in everything from retouched prints to digital copies on CD.
