At The Collective Photo, a talented team of skilled shutterbugs channels past experience shooting celebs including Ashley Tisdale and Hayley Williams of the band Paramore during creativity-infused one-hour photo shoots. After gathering up photogenic friends or family members, customers can choose an in-studio session or meet on location at an area home, picturesque park, or deserted rock quarry. The Collective Photo welcomes as many subjects as poses demand, with shoots pausing for up to two outfit changes, saving customers the trouble of choosing between traditional attire or a functioning space suit. After the appointment, subjects peruse the proofs and pick one to have masterfully retouched and immortalized in physical print form.
Mark Chaudhary, the photographer behind Jackrabbit Photo, travels to a variety of locations, such as LACMA, Santa Monica Pier, Long Beach Lighthouse, and Huntington Beach Park, to shoot various types of photography. After setting up his mobile studio, the expert shutterbug can photograph families, individuals, and pets. He also specializes in weddings, kids, and headshots for entertainers. When not at photo shoots, Mark teaches workshops on using DSLR cameras.
Brother and sister Melanie and Matthew Lawton believe it requires more than a creative eye and a pretty face to make art. They hold that the best photographic images occur through a relaxed collaboration between the subject and the camera. To establish this natural rapport, they guide individuals, families, and couples through on-location shoots, suggesting poses while listening to ideas. They encourage candid shots filled with movement and energy—such as newlyweds parading down an aisle of sparklers—while keeping their eyes open for opportunities to interact with on-location environments.
Specializing in headshots, Sherman Cox Photography ensures the right look and image for each client’s needs. Photographers take professional, crisp photos in the studio for models, actors, and businesspersons, with packages that include retouched digital images as well as full-body shots.
