From a black-and-white photo lab to a consummate producer of today’s digital images and fine art giclees, Jones Photo has been painstakingly scanning and printing the inimitable pictures of clients since the company’s inception in 1947. While the experts inside the sprawling one-story adobe confines have remained on the cusp of each new technological breakthrough, such as color film and digital files programmed by a cryogenically frozen Ansel Adams, they also continue to develop 35 mm and 120 film. Whatever the original medium, they print images on traditional, scratch-resistant photo paper as well as create canvas wraps, photo albums, and photo composites.
Emily Thueringer doesn’t need helping finding creative outlets. She paints, makes ceramics, writes, and reupholsters furniture, but in high school it was her sister who introduced her to photography. Since then, Emily’s passion for photography has grown, and her portfolio along with it. Her body of work is filled with high-contrast, eye-level shots of her subjects, some posing and others candidly glancing out of frame. She captures these warmly colored shots during photo-shoot packages tailored for weddings, babies, senior portraits, and holidays. She then shares how she captured them during photography classes and hour-long TV events entitled Photographer Secrets Revealed!.
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.
The team at Michelle Burley Photography knows there is more to preserving family memories than the simple click of a shutter. First, they create a welcoming boutique portrait-studio atmosphere—kids entertain themselves with finds from the resident toy box while adults enjoy coffee and sweets. Photographers guide graduating seniors or beloved pets through each session, incorporating any number of backgrounds or props to artfully set the scene. They seek out the perfect lighting at the studio's outdoor area or within the abundant sunshine streaming into one of two camera rooms. Clients then proof their images in an online gallery or with a cutting-edge portrait-viewing system that allows canines to choose their favorite shot via telepathy.
The crew leans toward a classic, romantic style, making it a natural match for wedding and boudoir photography. The photographers preserve captured images as wrap canvases, gallery mounts, or custom keepsake storybooks.
Professional photographer Ashley Nicole stylishly captures life milestones through in-studio and on-location shoots, using a skill set honed by more than a decade of experience. Before snapping her shutter, Ashley summons smiles to the faces of children, high-school seniors, newlyweds, and uncarved jack-o’-lanterns alike with a friendly personality and passion for her work. After sessions, clients boost memories and fill frames by purchasing keepsake prints or USB drives with high-resolution digital files. Alternatively, novice camera coddlers can nestle under Ashley's wing during her photography classes, which impart techniques for shooting in natural light via scenic romps through Reid Park, leaving clients ready to document their child's soccer game or prove the existence of Bigfoot's soccer league.
