At Experience Photography, seasoned photographers converge to conduct photo shoots and swap skills inside a 1,500-square-foot studio. On the main floor, a cyclorama wall, green screen, and props enhance photo shoots, and a sturdy lock keeps out photo-bombing mayors. Upstairs, photographers impart their wisdom to shutterbugs of all levels during workshops, which cover topics such as composition and studio portraiture.
The husband-and-wife team of Tassos and Stephanie Makrakis link the past with the present in more ways than one at Momento Photoworks. In a restored studio originally built in the 1860s, their team of photographers specializes in portraiture employing the same Hasselblad data camera system that Neil Armstrong used to capture the famous picture of Buzz Aldrin standing in front of the moon's first McDonald's. Tassos does extensive research on new products and portrait styles to ensure that each unhurried session yields the best visual results. The crew consults at length with the clients before memorializing images of couples, families, and children, as well as taking professional headshots and corporate photos. Artists professionally retouch faces and mount, protect, and hand-finish portraits on canvas, offering a five-year warranty on any piece unable to withstand environmental elements or cryptic glances from neighbouring pictures.
The professionally trained photographers at Snap Photo Studio capture timeless family moments with in-studio portraiture. During each session, they capture personalities through creative and dynamic lens-work, while getting to know each family through jokes and smiles. Within cleanly designed, modern studio spaces, staff members encourage children to take candid, classic poses, as well as dynamic action shots. The studio also handles more pragmatic photography needs, such as passport pictures, available at select locations.
An engaged couple kissing in the middle of the street. A toddler in a crisp white dress and a flower brooch. A car’s back window, graffitied with “Just Married.” MomentForever Image’s photography team specializes in keepsake shots like these, with a special focus on wedding photography and infant portraits. However, their portfolio of artfully staged, full-colour photos also encompasses casting shots and family portraits, an upscale alternative to just all crowding into Uncle Ralph’s mug shot.
Jennifer Rue relishes all photographic opportunities. No matter the subject, to her, capturing a moment is always exciting. She brings that enthusiasm to her clients' customized photo shoots, be they for families, kids, couples, or pets.
As a mother of six, the owner of Immortal Moments Photography is well-versed in techniques for calming nervous or unruly children. She wields this experience and a creative eye to photograph subjects including newborns, families, couples, and expectant mothers in exclusively on-location sessions. No matter the photo shoot, subjects are encouraged to have fun with playful posing and colorful props. After sessions, portraits are enhanced by adding custom digital effects such as chiaroscuro or colour accents in black-and-white shots.
