With more than 40 years of image-capturing history, Joel Marion Photography freezes moments in time with solo and family portraiture. Subjects select any location within a 20-mile radius for photo shoots, from a nostalgic childhood soda shop to a favorite underground bunker. Joel Marion employs an interactive photography style to lure candid smiles out of their hiding places, in sessions defined by friendly, focused attention. One-hour shoots produce at least 50 images, digitally documented via CD or DVD. Discs are presented approximately one week after the session, so photographers can edit, color balance, and digitally add diamond necklaces onto the subjects in all images. Clients can also view proofs online the same day discs become available, sending terabits of memories shuddering through fiber-optic cables. CDs may be mailed for an additional $5 payable on the day of the photo session, and finished prints (including Photoshop retouching) can be ordered at additional cost.
