Experienced photographer Steve Kowalski brings 20 years of fine-art and photojournalism experience to each photo shoot at A Better Exposure. Steve's portrait style includes color as well as black-and-white film, and he approaches each subject, from families to pets to recent college grads, with a desire to capture each distinct personality. During in-studio sessions, he serves refreshments while talking casually with clients in his lounge. Clients can have their shoots inside Steve's spacious studio, outfitted with a range of backdrops and canvases, or can take advantage of his expertise in on-location sessions that incorporate the beauty of the surrounding Omaha area. After each shoot, Steve retires to an advanced digital darkroom where he edits and retouches images, and removes any photo-bombing bunny rabbits. Customers can then purchase prints, photo books, and other products such as slideshows from A Better Exposure.
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.
The photographers at Malayzia Mag Studios have captured events such as the Taste of Chicago and Las Vegas Fashion Week as well as musicians including Robin Thicke and Estelle for the publication Malayzia Mag.

Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
Landauer Portrait Design's light harnessers employ cameras as portable time machines, capturing impulsive, honest moments that provide viewers with a gateway to their past. During the 90-minute, in-studio session, an expert photo maven will snap and click, enhancing facial features by utilizing flattering lighting (a $99 value). Capture a momentary truce between siblings with a children’s photo shoot, or bring mom, dad, and Grandma's evil twin into the picture with an extended family session. Maternity sessions celebrate the creation of new life forms, and newborn photo shoots provide hours of future reminiscing and a way to entertain teenagers’ dates. At the end of the session, bring home a favorite pose from the two chosen, in the form of an 11"x14" print (an $85 value) and its two 5"x7" offspring (a $55 value).
