Photography requires its artists to be highly skilled in the craft of re-creating reality, unlike painting, which relies on bumbling wrist twitches and a clumsy conglomeration of colors to produce “art.” Sit before an art machine that shows exactly what it sees with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a custom portrait session and a $50 credit toward prints from Stepka Photography (a $250 total value). Sessions take place at a location of your choice within 30 miles of zip code 44053 (additional fees apply for services outside this radius) or at the photographer's studio in Elyria.
Stepka Photography is the brainbaby of professional photographer Pam Stepka, who specializes in creating memorable images of people in all stages of life. With a photo session from Pam, you can plaster fridges with heartwarming shots of baby's first hair toss or line ceilings with artistic photos of your family looking off in opposite directions (a $200 value). Sessions last up to two hours, or however long it takes Pam to collect enough material for a properly constructed gallery.
After capturing a sufficient amount of prompted athletics and impromptu poses, clients can purchase their favorite frames as desk-adorning prints. Up to three chosen smiles and alien sightings can be transposed onto an 11"x14" ($45), 10"x13" ($40), 8”x10” ($30), or 5”x7” print ($15), or 8 wallet photos with shrink buttons to help them to fit into wallets and get jobs as featured displays in miniature museums ($15). Customers can also elect for additional safeguarding by having their chosen pics mounted on artboard and protectant-sprayed for $3–$12 per photo, depending on the size. Sessions scheduled from September through December also receive a digital image sized to 4"x6", perfect for holiday cards or flyers for "Dad vs. Bedmonster" MMA matches.
