A family of four poses amid crisp fall leaves, late sunlight casting a warm glow across their smiling cheeks. A newlywed couple beams at each other under a canopy of palm trees. Staff members of a new salon hold a giant pair of scissors, poised to cut the ribbon and the hair of their first giant customer during their opening ceremony. ultra-spective's photographers can capture groups and individuals in nearly any context, and they take a distinctive approach to each—so much so that the studio boasts six different divisions, for family portraits, high-school seniors, art portraiture, weddings, boudoir shoots, and business photography. An all-female team with expertise in lighting and airbrushing directs the boudoir shoots, where they guide subjects in poses designed to make them look svelte and beautiful. For family shoots, they'll gladly venture to a selection of reliably picturesque parks where split-rail fences lean, redwoods loom, and sycamores dapple golden fields with shade. The studio itself has plenty of personality, with chandeliers and black walls lined with hot pink sequins.

At Pharaoh Studios, owner and master photographer James F. Edwards peeks through his lens to capture the complex and singular personalities of actors, models, and families. In doing so, he consults with his clients and incorporates their ideas when staging group portraits, senior pictures, or headshots. He can then touch up the best photos and transform them into specialty items, including posters and zed cards, which showcase an actress or model's finest photographs.

When not shooting within his professional studio, Edwards and his camera travel on-location and through time to encapsulate moments at weddings and birthday parties.

President Obama and Sammy Hagar. There may only be one thing these two have in common: They were both photographed by James Waynauskas Photography. It's James's photojournalism background that's taught him how to capture all the emotions and drama of the fast-moving world in sharp focus. His background in art is why he's able to infuse all images with eye-catching compositions. Today, he puts all his experience into photo sessions for weddings, portraits, and glamour shots. Covering events such as sports and concerts are his bag, too, as are headshots.

Cruise around the city while brushing up on basic camera skills and honing an eye for composition during a two-hour photography workshop led by professional photon-wrangler John Ater, who has shot for the likes of Modern Luxury magazine and Dillard's. The workshop requires snap-happy shutterbugs to bring their own personal cameras, which may include traditional point-and-shooters, digital SLRs, or parlor-sized camerae obscurae. During the course of the photo trek, students are guided through the Mission, the Castro, the Embarcadero, or Chinatown, so comfortable clothes, shoes, and tracking devices are highly suggested. Check out the FAQs and view the current schedule and sign up for the workshop online.
