More than 20 years of photography experience grants PhotoArts Marin's Glen Graves more than just an eye for an ideal snapshot. His skill with traditional film cameras, lighting, and composition elements imbues his photos with a quality that has drawn the attention of such clients as Ford, US Air, and Architectural Digest. When not capturing boudoir portraits or smiling families during photo shoots, Glen can be found in the classroom teaching aspiring photographers the tricks of the trade, from using dynamic angles to frame a subject to how saying ?cheese? banishes spirits intent on photobombing.
A certified Mugsy Clicks photographer, the eponymous picture-smith lends her name and talents to the Kate Nagle Photography studio, focusing on artistically capturing true personalities with a special flair for working with children. Though some eye contact and focus is necessary for portraiture, spontaneous and lighthearted shoots help Kate capture her subjects' unique and rambunctious spirit without the use of fake smiles, props, or stunt doubles. Colorful shoots slurp up the vibrant rays from harlequin wardrobes, and simple, clean clothing in black-and-white shoots keep the attention on each customer's radiant personality. In as little as two weeks after the session, retouched images determine which photos will adorn mantles in gorgeous, mat prints, and which will accidentally get sent to the entire office as a digitized file.
Alicia Parks values the comfort of the home just as much as the mystery of the forest. She travels to homes to capture domestic bliss in her family portraits, amassing snapshots of subjects in front of Christmas trees and on cozy sofas. However, she also ventures into the woods, where she photographs brides dirtying their dresses, and to the beach, where wedding parties frolic on the sand and ignore the jealous glare of Poseidon.
Alicia's versatility gives clients the confidence to choose their preferred locale for each shoot. Whether she's following sisters through their favorite park or snapping pictures of a high-school senior leaning on his car, she captures easy smiles and a variety of poses. With her retouching finesse, she makes certain colors pop, and she readily produces prints for framing, nestling inside of wallets, or stapling to mannequins' faces in an effort to make them more personable.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
An expert portrait and fine arts photographer boasting work that has adorned calendars and television programs, Candice Caballero frames sultry boudoir shots with professional authority. After rendezvousing with Candice at her studio and ensuring that each patron appears on film, subjects swap wardrobe ensembles in between striking seductive and edgy poses. Candice personalizes her approach to each customer and strives to ensure that patrons feel comfortable throughout the entire session. In addition to five or seven skillfully edited digital images, clients receive two 5"x7" and two 8"x10" professional prints, or a 40% discount towards prints to place in frames or on refrigerators that claim they hardly know you.
Paul Murphy Photography’s trained photographers specialize in the art of the portrait, documenting life with sittings that commemorate everything from pregnancies and weddings to family reunions and high-school graduations. They work in the studio or at outdoor settings and will gladly share the location and clothing recommendations needed to take pictures from good to great. In addition to people portraits, they also shoot nonhuman subjects, such as cars, boats, or horses. No matter the subject matter, they will proudly display their color, black-and-white, or sepia photos in custom slide shows, framed portraits, and on photo bags heavy with old, nonphotographable memories.
