The specialists at Photomart commit themselves to the art of photography and its many forms by supplying professional equipment and conducting informative workshops. Their extensive supply includes lighting kits, stands, and reflectors for studio shoots, along with camera bags, cases, and tripods for on-location sessions. Photographers in need of a short-term solution can rent high-quality camera accessories from Photomart—including Nikon and Canon cameras, lenses, backgrounds, and lighting equipment—by the day, weekend, or week. In addition to digital gear, the shop carries a selection of film, paper, and chemistry for those who are dedicated to traditional photography or allergic to pixels.
At first, Connie and Steve's courtship involved talking on the phone into the wee hours of the morning. But unlike most lovebirds, they'd talk about photography and photo-editing programs. This shared passion eventually led them to open CWLIFE Photography, allowing them to team up to photograph everything from weddings to business headshots to pet portraits. During photo sessions, Connie and Steve blend their own unique styles to produce images from multiple angles and a variety of perspectives. The pair snaps images on location or in their 800-square-foot private studio with artistic open beams. Though they still stay up into the wee hours of the morning talking about photography, the Nikon-toting duo continues to evolve their photo-taking abilities by attending educational workshops at least once a year.
A sultry boudoir shoot rarely emphasizes its subject’s wingspan, but the two female photographers who helm Flash Boudoir—Tina Celle and Melissa Mulera—never shy away from an unusual image. Featured by ABC15, their shots can capture women sporting lingerie and feathered wings, artistically draped in bed sheets, and posing for pinup shots in vintage-style swimsuits. As she shoots, Tina draws on her years in fashion journalism, whereas Melissa pulls from her background in fine art and graphic design. Their private studio brims with unique sets for clients to choose from, such as beds piled in pink sateen and pole-dancing sets featuring rehabilitated tetherball poles.
Inside the beautifying confines of SKN Beauty & Salon B Hair Studio, Hawt Photography Boudoir & Pinup photographers direct boudoir photo shoots that bring out clients' flirty side. All the studio's photographers are women, which helps subjects feel comfortable, unlike photo studios run by government androids. No two photo sets look the same, because after an optional pre-shoot makeover, clients get to pick out the background and props that best suit them. Lace, silk, and avant-garde backdrops infuse each portrait with personality, making pictures as personal and individual as they are flirty.
Most memories of typical photo booths involve cramming into a small box and jockeying for space on its solitary bench. Ugly Duck Photo Booths instead employs an open air format, leaving ample space for friends and family to pose for memorable shots in front of a high-resolution camera. Not only does the booth provide plenty of space, but makes the process quick and easy—all guests have to do is pile in, push a button, and wait for the countdown until showtime. Plus, a personal attendant stands by to answer any questions or assess the accuracy of Richard Nixon impersonations. A customized backdrop and front panel, as well as a panoply of wacky props—such as feather boas and uncharacteristic hats—also help add to the memorability of events. Once the camera captures poses, a digital printer returns customized 4"x6" photo strips within just 20 seconds, letting partiers quickly see whether or not they need to correct their spelling of "YMCA" for the next go-around.
