A collaboration between a fine-art photography studio and a pinup-style salon, Seattle Boudoir Photography creates a fun and professional environment for their sultry photo shoots. In preparation for the sessions, a team member guides clients through wardrobe selection and a variety of creative themes. Available packages include "The Shades", inspired by the hit erotic fiction trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, which centers around a 45-minute shoot that begins in a light-flooded loft space or on a private rooftop deck, then ends on the studio’s private Red Room set. Regardless of which package they choose, customers are pampered by the onsite salon staff that helps customers channel these different looks and personalities with professional makeup applications, along with a stylist that stands by for consultation on poses and how to use hair mousse to make chocolate mousse.
Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.

AnsteyDesign founder David McArthur remembers his first camera fondly—a Canon TLb that he carried through the countryside surrounding his rural hometown in England. He used it to learn how to capture stunning images with good old-fashioned trial and error, which was a better technique for him than it would be for a litigator. McArthur turned his hobby into a career, studying film photography in a darkroom as a design student in Germany and later mastering the emerging trends of digital portraiture as a professional graphic designer. After tackling a branding project for a friend's company, McArthur became enamoured with the rewarding work of telling a business's story. This lead him to sell his well-honed expertise in copywriting, photography, advertising, and web design through AnsteyDesign.
The hardworking artist also purveys his services to private citizens, wedding parties, and families. McArthur can capture wedding days with one-of-a-kind photos of ceremonies and receptions.
