DRS Photography's duo of accomplished shutter snappers draws on more than 40 combined years of experience capturing famous performers to tutor pupils in photographic technique before guiding them through practice sessions at their in-house studio. Camera-bearing apprentices absorb rudimentary knowledge and skills during a three-hour course, such as learning about aperture and lenses, controlling shutter speed, manipulating different lighting configurations, composing exciting shots, and persuading Tasmanian devils to sit still during portraits. Subsequent two-hour safari sessions shuffle students among various studio sets based on different themes and images. Though not included with today's deal, customers can also browse an assortment of accessories, such as lenses, cases, film, and time-stopping pocket watches sold in the studio store.
A lifelong animal lover, Cherie Luckoff's interest in photography grew after she began chronicling the antics of her own dogs, a hobby she continues to this day. Her penchant for capturing pets in pastel led to an interest in boudoir photography—a genre she mastered during years spent training under Claudio Basso and Playboy veteran Ken Marcus. Working in concert with Cherie is staff makeup artist Jennie Sullivan, who imbues subjects with confidence by highlighting their best features. Cherie goes out of her way to set her models at ease, striking some poses herself to show how to execute a natural-looking position. A background in both art education and interior design guides her as she sets up a shoot, enhancing her portraits’ distinctive sensual auras via props such as petals, pearls, and feather boas. This attention to detail has led Cherie to develop a devoted fan base of clients who gallop into her studio from across the state as well as from Michigan and New York.
With a quick draw on their cameras and an eye for detail, the shutterbugs at Schade Photography don't let a moment slip by. They cover everything from weddings to birthdays, documenting all manner of important life events. They can also snap portraits of families, kids, and couples, both in-studio and on-location.
Adam Queen’s photo-snapping prowess can capture a family member’s elusive smile emerging from hibernation or convey emotions through imagery without requiring any of the people in it to wear kabuki masks. Since 2001, Adam has worked as a pro photog in such places as Mexico and Spain, and his studio of white sweep backgrounds and tabletop environments provides Columbus with a convenient locale for senior photos, baby pictures, smooching couples, and family portraits. Otherwise, you can opt to shoot at a nearby location within 7 miles of I-270 (call Adam to confirm), such as your apartment or the faerie market you stumbled upon while sleepwalking. After the shoot, you’ll obtain copyright to 10 images, as well as 20% off your next session and 10% off any prints or additional digital files you'd like to purchase. If you prove to be unusually photogenic, you can even buy the entire roll ($100).
TEN Photography's Tiffany N. Ertle believes the best photos are the most natural ones. During her photo shoots, clients are encouraged to unwind and be themselves as she snaps photos brimming with levity and sincerity alike. Photos from the sessions are available as digital images or glossy prints for an additional charge.
