Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
Clients have family heirlooms and memorabilia that mean the world to them. We preserve them and turn them into amazing art pieces for them to enjoy all the time.
Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?
We try to exceed expectations by providing design options that give their artwork the wow factor when it is on the wall.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
The enormous range of possibilities that there are for a client to choose from. We help narrow down the options to make sure they are not overwhelmed.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We can frame almost anything, from knives and guns and swords to kimonos and scarves and fans. [We also frame] sports and military memorabilia, as well as family portraits and works of art. We provide expert advice and guaranteed craftsmanship.
We specialize in photography for every occasion and photo restoration. We do NOT do photo prints, but instead provide customers with a disc with all of the images and a print release so you can print your pictures wherever, whenever, in whatever size, as many times as you want. We are available weeknights and weekends.
Customers can transform digital photographs into elegant coffee-table books with the help of Photobook America's intuitive photo-book-designer program. Each book is handmade with superior-quality materials, such as linen, silk, leather, and newt skin, all available in a variety of striking colors. Accessories, such as slipcases and presentation boxes, can add a dash of pizzazz to each order, and acid-free paper ensures long-lasting photo quality. Orders are typically completed within five to seven business days, ensuring that customers will be able to promptly obtain their own memorable keepsake book and avoid carving sentimental images into a wall-mounted Etch A Sketch.
Experienced photographer Steve Kowalski brings 20 years of fine-art and photojournalism experience to each photo shoot at A Better Exposure. Steve's portrait style includes color as well as black-and-white film, and he approaches each subject, from families to pets to recent college grads, with a desire to capture each distinct personality. During in-studio sessions, he serves refreshments while talking casually with clients in his lounge. Clients can have their shoots inside Steve's spacious studio, outfitted with a range of backdrops and canvases, or can take advantage of his expertise in on-location sessions that incorporate the beauty of the surrounding Omaha area. After each shoot, Steve retires to an advanced digital darkroom where he edits and retouches images, and removes any photo-bombing bunny rabbits. Customers can then purchase prints, photo books, and other products such as slideshows from A Better Exposure.
PeggyBank understands that it takes a lot of faith to let go of your memories, even temporarily. That's why they designed a multi-step process to set their clients' minds at ease when sending precious VHS tapes, photographs, and rolls of film to be converted into digital files. The process begins with customers packing their treasured media into a PeggyBox, a crush- and shock-resistant container equipped with waterproof bags to safeguard contents from rain or water-balloon fights in the post office. Upon receiving the packages, PeggyBank's technicians assess the contents and provide an estimate before converting videos and images into the appropriate type of file, which are then hosted by PeggyBank for clients to download at their convenience. Finally, PeggyBank bids adieu to clients' original copies as they ship them safely back home.
Aaron Zeller understands that great photography goes beyond pretty scenery and broad smiles—it’s about telling a story. He founded AJZeller Photography in 2009 as a way to document genuine emotions—from a young couple’s love to a family’s joyful new addition—unsullied by contrived poses or smiles enlarged with clown makeup. Aaron specializes in what he calls Beloved photography, a style that strives to capture the raw, unfiltered love of a couple through real-life interactions instead of coached emotions. He offers wedding, portrait, and engagement photography as well as a unique program—A Life Remembered—that records the passing of time through yearly photo sessions, discounted prints, and hourly polaroids of a grandfather clock.
