The pearly white of a toddler’s first tooth. The glow of a young woman’s cheeks on her sixteenth birthday. These are the things that Classic Imaging Photography’s experts seek to capture with a deft click of the shutter. The professional photographers position subjects during in-studio shoots or go on-location to snap images of newly engaged couples in the park where they met or defeated a rival family of swans. The shutterbugs also photograph or capture video of cake-cuttings and dances at landmark events, attempting to stay quietly in the background all the while. To generate souvenirs and bolster revelry, the crew also brings photo booths to parties.
Harlem local Jean Andre Antoine’s passion for videography led him to explore the world of photography, where he brings his eye for movement and cinematography to photo shoots to capture capturing memorable family moments, individual portraits, and elegant boudoir scenes. Each shoot demands Antoine’s full attention as he seeks to put clients at ease, ensuring every session’s images reflect a natural, genuine version of their subjects regardless of the setting, style, or purpose of the shoot. Antoine consults with clients about attire and any concerns they have before the shoot, and encourages subjects to plan ahead for sessions by checking over his list to arrive better prepared than a bomb shelter stocked with 10 years’ worth of Chef Boyardee. Antoine also applies his knowledge of digital retouching to spruce up raw images before handing them over as traditional prints or safely stamped on a CD
Jaquis Saylor began his career in fashion by designing his own line, Green Grape Clothing. But soon photographing models piqued his creativity more than dressing them. So he ditched his sewing kit for a camera and taught himself the ins and outs of photography. At Green Grape Photography, Jaquis's runway and editorial experience led to his specialty: building the portfolios of up-and-coming models with sessions that include makeup, up to four looks, and high-resolution images. In addition to fashion shoots, he snaps photos for glamour and pinup sessions, as well as events and family portraits.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props.

Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
