The National Association of Photoshop Professionals wants to put photographers on the moon, or at least give them the tools to make it look like they were there. Since 1993, this team of Photoshop enthusiasts, led by renowned Photoshop author Scott Kelby, has focused their passion for photo editing into creating a slew of products that can enhance users' editing skills.
Beginners or seasoned pros can get help from DVDs, videos, online tutorials, books, or the association's online magazine, Photoshop User. The association also imparts helpful tips and techniques to groups large and small during conferences and seminars that are held all around the world since they have not yet mastered the art of public speaking through telepathy.
Since 1989, photographer Ron Grecco has worked with thousands of family and commercial clients and served on the Tampa Area Professional Photographers Association’s board of directors. Along the way, he’s expanded on a portfolio that includes many inventive shots, including family portraits on the beach, adorable pictures of puppies, and mouthwatering shots of restaurant dishes. Ron and his team offer their services for a variety of subjects and occasions, including family photo shoots, weddings, and professional headshots.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100), personalized jerseys glisten (most for under $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24x36 pieces are under $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.

Hannah Reyes Photography always had a creative streak in her, but the birth of her son inspired her to turn her to take more photographs—and eventually pursue it as a career. Now she chronicles memories and milestones outside for other families and children, using natural light to give crisp color to her portraits. As she meanders through fields and trees with her clients, she usually gets things started with a few suggestions on poses, but ultimately she aims to capture all the candid smiles in between. She also has a penchant for including the sun in her photos for the beautiful effects it creates as it tries to hide from the camera.
To Olena, each event and every person is unique, so she strives to honor that uniqueness with a photographic style that is both artistic and playful. The playfulness comes from the laid-back, light-hearted setting she fosters during photo sessions, which allows clients to relax and be themselves, and the artistic composition comes from her experience in photography and degree in multimedia and computer imaging. She shoots everything from weddings and portraits to headshots and baby sessions, and can enhance all sessions with products such as custom photo albums and frames.
