After working for 24 years at what he calls a "real" job, Bob DiTommaso left the office environment to pursue his passion: photography. It wasn't an easy switch—his career move required long hours and lots of hard work—but Bob says he wouldn't change a thing. The effort paid off in the end, when he opened his own studio, Robert DiTommaso Photography.
Bob works mainly in family and children's photography, but his interests run the gamut from portraits to landscape and sports photography. Regardless of subject, the seasoned shutterbug brings a keen eye for capturing the ineffable in each and every shoot. And he prints his images in-house on a wide-format professional ink-jet printer.
When he's not taking great photos, Bob is teaching others to do so during photography workshops that take place in-studio or on-location. He even leads photography safaris, multi-day trips that trek through national parks and other breathtaking locales in search of the perfect shot of Bigfoot buying deodorant.
Sears Portrait Studio's original photographers committed their first family photos to film more than 60 years ago, and the studio's digital photographers continue the tradition of taking high-quality portraits at more than 1,000 U.S. locations open today. Each professional photographer completes a rigorous training program before they begin composing and shooting digital photographs, adopting styles ranging from formal portraits to passport photos. Their all-digital system lets customers access their photographs online, where they can add graphics before ordering prints for collages, greeting cards, mugs, and broken-mug collages.
Brian Masserman shot his first wedding at 15, armed with a Kodak Instamatic. Though it wracked his nerves to wait a week for his photos to develop, he knew he'd found a calling. A member of the Professional Photographers of America for more than 20 years, he now captures special occasions and intimate moments after consultations in which he tailors his photographic style to his customers’ needs, following his personal mantra: "There is no such thing as a perfect photograph, but there are such things as perfect moments."
During the more than 600 weddings they've photographed, Brian and his two staffers have varied their approach, sometimes snapping candid pictures of revelers and other times relying on a more journalistic feel. His skills stretch to include family portraiture and commercial work, and his senior portraits crackle in black and white, color, or mixtures of the two. After photo-shoots, he employs a keen sense of design to help customers to decide their print style, and even travels to their homes to find a place to hang their prints.
Brian always seeks to develop concrete relationships with customers and has even chronicled the milestones of one client from her bat mitzvah to her wedding day. To share his expertise, he hosts intensive workshops in which he drills students in camera settings, composition, and abbreviated editing techniques. He and his staff believe in the visual power of physical prints and frame and restore photos and love letters written on cheeseburger wrappers. They also print photographic images onto more eclectic material such as canvas, wood, and aluminum.

No two people are alike, so at Eclipse Studios, neither are two photo sessions. Senior portraits, for example, reflect the interests that make every teenager unique, whether they're nature lovers, sports fans, drama fanatics, or anything in between. Armed with decades of experience, Eclipse’s photographer applies the skills and sensitivity required of virtually any situation. During boudoir sessions, they let women don their most elegant, but rarely flaunted ensembles and showcase their sensual sides amid flattering lighting and a comfortable environment. And family portraits celebrate the powerful connections between kin, whether in the formal setting of the studio or the candid atmosphere of a backyard get-together.
