When she's not taking an afternoon nap or admiring a stargazer lily, Victoria of VCB Photography is capturing weddings, families, and growing kids. Her portfolio overflows with the faces and paraphernalia of young ones, whether it's a mother cradling a pair of baby shoes or a boy momentarily wondering whether he left the Easy-Bake Oven on. Victoria performs her shoots onsite, harnessing natural light and environments to accentuate her subjects' best sides.
Rather than teach you to navigate camera buttons and menus inside a stuffy studio, American Photo Safari takes students of all skill levels on an adventure where they learn to photograph while touring historic parts of New Orleans. As small groups stroll on foot through the French Quarter or past the Garden District's mansions and aboveground cemetery, local professional photographers teach students one-on-one how to capture stunning images using any type of camera. Sessions last 2.5 hours, though American Photo Safari also offers a 4-hour version of its French Quarter tour.
In business since 1999, Robin DePaula brings a wealth of experience to her studio work. Robin's online galleries provide an unfettered look at some of her more recent endeavors, including her Ooh-La-La Boudoir shoots. These intimate, pin-up-style photo shoots allow sultry stars or starlets to shine. Clients can take advantage of Robin's professional hair and airbrush-makeup-application services (starting at $65) or simply show up, throw on a smile, and throw themselves in front of the flurry of flashes. For those who do not seek boudoir brilliance, Robin is also available for group shoots starring up to four photogenic subjects. These one-hour shoots can capture the essence of families or individuals, including infants and nature's collegiate infants, high-school seniors.
