With a portfolio spanning babies and children, fashion and boudoir, and performance, photographer Melissa Schumacher applies her image-snagging instincts during both on-location and in-studio shoots. Paying special attention to how light reveals a subject’s third eye, Schumacher maintains engaging themes through each shoot, including Trash the Dress sessions that juxtapose elegant attire against unexpected settings, such as a bride splashing in a creek. Schumacher helps subjects get the most of their shoots by dispensing tips for both damsels and cavaliers.
At the age of 19, photographer David Haskell made the acquaintance of an InStyle magazine editor. He recounted this story during an interview with VTalk Radio Photography Spotlight, adding, the editor invited me to “their offices in Toronto and asked if I would cover an editorial thing." Within a few weeks, Haskell started working with Revlon Canada, and ultimately landed in New York. Since then, his work has been published in more than 70 countries and his subjects have ranged from Phyllis Diller to Jay-Z.
Reflecting on his success, Haskell places special emphasis on the importance of "taking care of the people you're taking pictures of." This commitment to serving subjects reaches to the present: Regardless of whom he photographs, Haskell makes sure that his subjects feel comfortable and confident. He finds and uses light to highlight natural beauty, whether inside at his modern studio or outside at scenic landscapes or highway underpasses. His fellow photographers do the same, capturing models, fiancées, graduates, and families in shoots of various styles.
As the eyes behind Simply Boudoir Photography, Ashley Lynn Archer captures subjects' sensual features and flirty figures with professional boudoir photo sessions. During a 90-minute tryst with the camera, clients may transform themselves into provocative models through unlimited wardrobe changes and by putting into practice advice from Chicken Soup for the Sultry Soul. The private studio additionally houses a variety of props for enhancing poses in front of a choice of tactile backdrops. Opt for the beautification shoot and allow a professional stylist to brighten eyes and lips with radiant makeup hues and fashion hair into amorous sculptures of Aphrodite. After the session, models may peruse a secure online gallery of the session's images and select either one 8"x10" portrait or two 5"x7" prints to hang in a closet, making the rest of the wardrobe jealous.
