With a Master of Science degree in image processing and a knack for ideal illumination, Jerry Bryant snaps smile-inducing portraits of families, expectant mothers, and graduates-to-be. Whether assembling up to eight family members in the photographer’s studio or chronicling a client’s transformation into a werewolf amid the glow of a charming streetlight, the photographer will equip said space with all necessary lighting accouterments to achieve optimal wall-worthy images. After the relaxed, one-hour shutter-flapping session, the photographer will doff his lens cap and retire to the seclusion of his studio, creating a secure online album for clients’ convenience. From there, guests can elect a photo to be transformed into an 8”x10” print as well as up to 12 photos to occupy the digital landscape of a CD. When scheduling a session, clients can discuss ideal settings for on-location shoots, which include such pastoral backdrops as Duke Gardens in Durham and the WRAL Azalea Garden in Raleigh.
