Photographs are moments frozen in time, which is why microwaving them results in piping-hot graduation ceremonies and quickly steamed wedding dances. Perform permanent temporal refrigeration with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a one-hour photo shoot with Mary L. Carter, and the resulting digital images, from 3 Cubed Studios, LLC, in Van Nuys (up to a $500 value). The shoot can take place either in-studio or on-location within 15 miles of the 91405 zip code—or outside this area at additional cost.
An arts-and-entertainment veteran with experience in modeling, acting, and directing films, 3 Cubed Studios co-founder Mary L. Carter frames up flattering portraits for a diverse clientele of families, actors, celebrities, and business professionals. Portrait-coveting subjects can pose in-studio, or in their favorite park or lake bottom for maximized natural oneness with nature. Carter snaps striking head shots for aspiring thespians to reenact in front of casting agents, while her family and pet portraiture captures dogs with their guardians and kids with their owners.
For their session, customers should bring a USB flash drive that is compatible with a PC and has at least 4 GB of available memory; at the shoot’s conclusion, they can immediately collect all of the resulting high-resolution digital images onto the flash drive. After the shoot, packages are available for prints or retouching for an additional charge. In rare instances, Carter may become unavailable for a scheduled shoot, in which case one of her trusty staff photographers will fill her viewfinder with an equally knowledgeable eyeball.
Though online reviews for the studio are still growing, customer testimonials are available for Mary L. Carter on the 3 Cubed Studios website:
