Working with professional models and companies such as Hooters and Budweiser has taught Craig Davis much about the art of glamour photography. Though his customers range from high-profile swimsuit companies to individuals looking to jumpstart their modeling careers, Craig sticks to a simple principle in all his shoots: make his models look as good as possible.
He is aided in his efforts by an 18,000-square-foot studio that houses a massive 20-foot white wall and an 18-foot green screen. These backdrops are just a few of the key ingredients to the exotic sets he devises; others include professional studio strobes and soft boxes designed to perfectly illuminate the glint in his models’ eyes and the intricate designs on their oversize Christmas sweaters.
The studio specializes in sexy glamour and boudoir photography, but Craig can also snap dashing photos of high-school seniors and family portraits. Though his casual, informal demeanor does a good job of hiding it during photo shoots, his meticulous attention to detail comes through when he retouches photos to enhance skin tone and, in the case of boudoir sessions, counteract the effects of fogged-up lenses.
Sears Portrait Studio's original photographers committed their first family photos to film more than 60 years ago, and the studio's digital photographers continue the tradition of taking high-quality portraits at more than 1,000 U.S. locations open today. Each professional photographer completes a rigorous training program before they begin composing and shooting digital photographs, adopting styles ranging from formal portraits to passport photos. Their all-digital system lets customers access their photographs online, where they can add graphics before ordering prints for collages, greeting cards, mugs, and broken-mug collages.
Target Portrait Studios are operated by professional photographers who aim to help you capture special moments. Target's studios can be decorated for most any type of shoot, whether you're celebrating a mom-to-be, a graduation, or an upcoming holiday. Subjects also have the opportunity to choose their own backdrops or props, and they can even bring in their favorite toy or invisible friend. The customization doesn't end with the shoot, though?digital files can be personalized with borders, designs, and quotes and then printed in a variety of sizes.
