The professional photographers at Solaris Photography know that it takes practice to keep their aesthetic senses and photo-snapping muscles in shape. That's why the staff regularly attends and assists with photography workshops and maintains their membership in the Professional Photographers of America and International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. They further perfect their skills while staging in-studio portraits and hitting the road to chronicle weddings and special events. In addition to traditional prints, the studio also creates digital files that can be uploaded to social-media sites or PhotoShopped into daguerreotypes.
Having learned the basics of using a camera from his dad, John Buono began shooting professionally at the age of 16. His learning didn't end with his camera; before each session, he may ask about his subject's favorite facial features and hobbies, or whether they agree with the camera about politics. At JB Photo and Video, he wields this knowledge to frame his clients naturally for senior portraits, engagements, or weddings.
In the more than 25 years Jim Earls has spent behind the lens, he has photographed over 1,500 weddings and countless families, high-school graduates, and children. A former president of the Arizona Professional Photographers Association, Earl also uses his portrait-snapping prowess to teach digital-photography classes. Beginners’ sessions instruct students on how to create quality images by manipulating camera settings, exposure, natural light, and flash. Alternatively, classes on computer and camera functions give step-by-step instruction on how to navigate cameras and upload images that can be edited, printed out, and used to wallpaper a bathroom. Earls leads both indoor and outdoor photography shoots, which help students become more versatile photographers by working among studio settings as well as natural backdrops.
Master photographer and staff encourage subjects to bring props and favorite outfits into the digital photo shoots to make each set of images distinctly personal. Dozens of studio sets to choose from allow subjects to arrive at the perfect mood for their family portraits, graduation photos, and headshots for radio jockey gigs. Boudoir sessions allow ladies to celebrate their bodies by accentuating their curves through flirty, romantic, or sensual poses polished with digital touch-ups.

Edgeton Photography's team of personable shutterbugs brandish their smile-summoning skills to incarcerate moments of familial affection within mantel-ready portraits. Gather up to five members of the clan and spend approximately 60 minutes pleasantly emoting and reenacting passive-aggressive salt passes inside a professional studio that's equipped with a range of retina-soothing backdrops. Grin-off sessions allow for up to three wardrobe changes, permitting clients to diversify the aesthetic feel of their photographs, as well as showcase their trifecta of Smurf costumes. After uploading the finished products onto an online gallery, Edgeton Photography’s camera crackerjacks will corral 20 of the best images onto a CD and actualize the most cherished frame onto an 11”x14” print. Customers will also get a 10% discount on any additional prints, products, or services. Unlike drive-thru marriage-counseling services, Edgeton Photography requires its clients to call ahead for an appointment.
