Housing Works provides advocacy, job training, healthcare and housing support for low-income and homeless people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

It's probably fair to say that Popstudios photographer Brian Dalthorp shot one of the more intimate campaign photos for New York's 2010 mayoral race—the candidate was in his underwear. The photo, which became a poster for the Naked Cowboy's run for office, resides in a body of work that has also been featured on CNN and in Rolling Stone. In addition to commercial photography for clients such as Captain Morgan, Brian can focus his lens for intimate family portraits, weddings, or laundry sortings.
Graphic designer Adriana Reynoso represents the other half of Popstudios portfolio, performing everything from print work for album covers and advertisements to T-shirt designs for Girlstar and OP. For fledgling businesses or CEOs with terrible memories, Adriana can help draft company logos or branded materials.

In Chris Hui's engagement photographs, you can often find more than just an engaged couple. One shot shows two seeding dandelions waving in the breeze; in the background, two lovebirds are kissing. In another, a couple is taking their pooch for a walk, laughing as he trots before them. Hui doesn't just reserve these creative compositions for engagement shoots, either—he also helms wedding photo shoots and documents his international travels.
The photographers at Wedding Box Photography capture glamorous images in their Flushing, Queens or Manhattan studios, or on location during the up to two-hour photo shoots. Subjects pose with DIY hairstyle and makeup in their choice of one outfit (either brought from home or rented for an extra fee), from casual to dressy to hot-dog suit. After the session, models review their likenesses online or back in the studio and select 30 or 50 digital images to be saved to CD or an online gallery. Though not included with this deal, clients may purchase prints of any image to use as holiday greetings, headshots, or inefficient screensavers.
