Photographer Jeffrey Dachowski first picked up a camera in high school, and from his credits and credentials, you might think he’d never put it down since. His photos have landed on the pages of Rolling Stone and Woman's World, and his trophy case is lined with nine Kodak Gallery awards and two Fuji Masterpiece awards. Eventually, Jeffrey and his wife, Carolle, planted their own studio on the banks of the Merrimack River, where they teach photography classes in addition to working for commercial, portraiture, and wedding clients. Indoor courses teach Photoshop at beginning and intermediate levels, and the day-long Portrait Safari brings pupils outdoors, where they can capture scenes of majestic puppies in the wild.
Marina Zinovyeva has been creative all her life, so it only makes sense that, when she steps behind a camera, her style is imaginative. Sometimes, Marina employs photo-journalistic techniques. Other times, she takes a candid approach to capture her subjects' honest emotions in the moment. Many of those moments come on the road during on-location shoots, since Marina readily travels to spots around the region. She'll even hop on an airplane or hitch a ride with a passing hot air balloon to shoot destination weddings. When she's not on the road, Marina conducts sessions at a comfortable, private studio in Manchester, complete with a park for outdoor shots.
German-born shutterbug David Vogt spent years snapping photos inside a studio. Over time, though, he found himself strongly drawn to on-location photography. In each unique photo-shoot location, he saw countless opportunities for creative images that simply wouldn’t be possible against a studio’s generic backdrop.
These days, Vogt works exclusively on-location. He takes time to set up each shot, ensuring images that are creative and well composed, and then works with clients to choose the best images before meticulously editing them by hand. In addition to engagement photos, senior portraits, and other human-centered images, he snaps real estate photos that show properties in their best light.
In 2003, Nichole Poirier snapped a photo of her husband holding their 5-week-old daughter. This picture marked two beginnings: her new life as a mom and her new career as a professional photographer. Her parenting skills made her a natural fit for photographing newborns, though she also specializes in capturing images of families, high-school seniors, couples, and boudoir models. She prefers to conduct her sessions at locations meaningful to her clients, such as their favorite apple orchard or park, to elicit natural expressions for a mix of posed and candid images. That combination results in a varied portfolio of moments, from newlyweds tenderly embracing to a father telling his son “That’s why we can’t have nice things,” after he spills his first glass of milk.
