Skilled at composing and capturing unique shots, Lee snaps portraits and immortalizes important moments such as weddings, graduations, or the first time you saw a double-decker bus. He also captures smoldering glances with boudoir photo shoots, which are customized to match the model’s personality and comfort level.
City Dock Photography takes its name from Annapolis' City Dock. It was this location—with its placid waters and distinct architecture—that first drew Joe Heimbach into the world of photography. Mr. Heimbach honed his artistic skills over the years, and he eventually settled into areas of expertise: fine art, commercial, and portrait photography. He often captures images of nature, such as horses walking along the beach or a shower of light beams bursting through a forest canopy from a UFO hovering above. Similar outdoor settings form the backdrops when Heimbach photographs people. Of course, the expert photographer also ventures indoors for in-studio shoots or when he's frequently called upon to photograph food for local restaurants.

Rock 'N Body Pole Studio's fleet of instructors enkindle self-confidence in the women that saunter through sassy weekly classes at both the Lutz and Tampa locations. Designed to ease ladies into the practice, the studio's trio of beginning courses require neither dance experience nor fitness prowess. Intro to Pole equips pupils with the sport's fundamentals, such as its signature footwork and a bag of sugar cubes to quell whinnying poles. Further fostering dance floor confidence, Pole 101–enrolled ladies pump up muscular strength and fine-tune their technique. These sessions also pile on performance, as participants master up to three spins while embodying the character of a dancing diva or a Capture the Flag champion. Most students take at least a quartet of Pole 101 lessons before enlisting in more challenging cha-cha styles.

In the years since, he's captured dynamic images for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Maserati.
