This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.

Lee Rose’s love of photography dates back to his youth, but he took a detour through corporate America as a senior executive before committing himself to a photography career. Now, having traded in suits for jeans, Lee works with his partner Cindy Penn to capture life’s moments of beauty with his camera. 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.
In the shadow of national monuments and blooming trees, a chorus of camera shutters click while photographers usher once-fleeting moments into eternity. Premier Photo Tours' staff helps foster such experiences, giving shooters skills with which to go after their photographic pursuits. Each a combination of instructor and guide, the company's camera pros lead themed walks around town that teach kids and adults how to frame scenic shots or get a stubborn art sculpture to smile. Deeper instruction comes in the form of Photo Mentor classes for photographers who want to take a more artistic and technically savvy approach in any stage of their photography development. During any of Premier's sessions, snappers have the opportunity to build community with one another around their budding talents, which can be enhanced on group travel excursions to some of the world's most photogenic locales.
