The word "moodology" isn't in the dictionary. Nonetheless, the term, coined by photographer Curtis Jermany, best encapsulates his work, which he describes as "the practice of photographically capturing your many moods." To achieve this, Curtis casts his portraiture subjects in heavy shadow, dramatically emphasizing the sheen of sweat on a young boxer or the fretboard of a talented musician's guitar. While Curtis mans the camera, his team of makeup artists and stylists helps ensure that every pose-striker feels comfortable and confident.
Available for commercial and private work both in the studio and on-location, Curtis's clients range from fashion models to families, kids, and high school seniors. Besides snapping his own photos, Curtis teaches classes that help amateur shutterbugs avoid rookie mistakes such as filling entire rolls of film with close-up pictures of your eye.
President Obama and Sammy Hagar. There may only be one thing these two have in common: They were both photographed by James Waynauskas Photography. It's James's photojournalism background that's taught him how to capture all the emotions and drama of the fast-moving world in sharp focus. His background in art is why he's able to infuse all images with eye-catching compositions. Today, he puts all his experience into photo sessions for weddings, portraits, and glamour shots. Covering events such as sports and concerts are his bag, too, as are headshots.

Guests can flash naked faces or don props with impunity, as an attendant stays on hand for the duration of the rental to ensure problem-free operation.
