After once attending photography school for three years in New York to perfect his studio photography and lighting techniques, Brad Washburn now channels his 15 years of experience into Washburn Photography, focusing primarily on weddings and family photo shoots. Brad's specialty lies in studio head shot photography, where he holds sessions in a relaxed upscale studio with sharp focus and colors that pop. Engagement sessions, maternity, newborn, acting, modeling, executive head shots, and event photography are also within his skill set.
Belle Amie Studios’ travelling trio of shutterbugs, led by owner and photographer Melissa Olsen, journeys to beaches, piers, homes, and parks to snap shots of families and couples. The team believes that natural light and natural smiles make great pictures, and keeps sessions fun and relaxed to bring out the easy grins it seeks. In addition to outdoor portraiture, the photographers offer their skills to brides-to-be for engagement-party shoots, wedding days, wedding showers, and practice pretend weddings.
It's not everyday that you catch a huge wave, and it's even less likely that a photographer is on-hand to capture the moment. But that's precisely what the network of shutterbugs at Caught You Ripping aims to do. Photographers take to the streets and the sand to catch athletes at their best, whether they’re riding a surfboard, skateboard, or Roomba that's gone rogue. Onsite photo shoots yield dozens of action shots, perfect for sticking on the fridge or sharing with friends.
Nancy Villere?s team of all-female photographers and makeup artists has worked with talent agencies and modeling schools that sought them out to craft sensual portraits. Specializing in boudoir photography, the staff puts clients at ease as it captures fun and flirtatious moments in the bedroom, tastefully framing intimate shots to showcase the sensual curves of the female form or a favorite pair of footed pajamas.
Clients thinking outside the bedroom can pose for engagement photos, senior portraits, or headshots for an audition to star in the neighbor's home movies. Professionally applied makeup makes faces smolder, and hairstyling sessions get coifs camera-ready. After each shoot, the studio performs digital retouching to produce images that flawlessly capture each patron?s inherent beauty.
It was only natural that Glam-Studios' photographer and artist Gina would gravitate toward boudoir photography and glamorous portraiture. For one thing, she has backgrounds in beauty and fashion. As a painter, she trained to consider composition and color when crafting an original image. Gina believes that every woman is beautiful, and she's dedicated to coaxing subjects' self-confidence to the surface. Her studio features some modern furniture, setting the scene for a variety of possibilities, and she'll also travel to do shoots on location.
Bradford Rowley's manually finished portraiture evokes the classic regality of a time when the paintbrush was mightier than the Polaroid. Each personally appointed opus begins life as a photograph in the artist's controlled studio environment. Individual subjects can regale the camera eye with defining aspects of their personality or hobbies, augmenting poses with props such as a violin, a horse-riding crop, or a high-school-mascot costume. After that, clients select a single shot to serve as the base of the future masterpiece. Up to eight layers of paint ensconce this initial image in the trappings of old Europe during the ensuing three-month artistic process. Bradford's team of classical crafters employs digital processes only when absolutely necessary, discreetly expunging unsightly bits of lint or the ghost of Warren G. Harding.
