Like syncing a laser light show with the birth of a child, photography requires the subtle manipulation of light to create works of beauty. Take advantage of fine-tuned lightbending techniques with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a professional headshot session (a $125 value) with picture retouching (a $25 value) and one black-and-white and one color high-resolution digital image of the same photo (a $70 value) from Joel Marion Photography in Manchester (a $220 total value).
The eponymous shutterbug at Joel Marion Photography draws from more than 35 years of photojournalistic-style experience to craft genuine portraits infused with the personality, the emotion, and the style of each subject. Portrait posers arrive at Marion's photoporium for a 30-minute soul-stealing session with up to two wardrobe or Colonial-dialect changes. After captivating the camera lens with bright smiles and broody, actorish hand gesturing, customers sift through an online gallery of proofs and select one to be retouched and digitally immortalized as two high-resolution images, one color and one black-and-white. As a picture-proffering bonus, additional images can be retouched for a $50 fee, and prints can be purchased within the first week of publishing for 50% off. Equipped with an expertly fashioned headshot, customers can embark on a storied and celebrated entertainment career or devise a crisp and professional introduction to future first dates.
Joel Marion Photography
Joel Marion first cultivated his creativity while enlisted in the Air Force and working as a photojournalist. He taught himself the complexities of shutter speed and f-stops through trial and error. Through his company—Joel Marion Photography—the autodidact has become one of the fortunate few whose avocation becomes their vocation, unlike Michael Jordan, who longed to dunk donuts instead of basketballs. Throughout his career, he has worked in fashion and advertising in St. Louis. By working with area clients for more than 30 years, Joel brings an experienced and creative approach to family, baby, high-school senior, and head-shot portraits. His wife Carol manages the studio while photographer and design and Photoshop specialist, Kelly Tucker, shoots sessions and helps their clientele create aesthetically pleasing compositions.
