Cameras capture life's most memorable moments, freeing brains from forming memories so they may concentrate instead on advanced board-game strategies. Immortalize your loved ones before beating them at Monopoly with today's Groupon to Wyse Photos in Dartmouth. Choose between two options:
- For $30, you get a one-hour in-studio photo shoot, one 11"x14" print, and a choice of one 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, or eight wallet-size prints (a $68.98 total value).
- For $59, you a 90-minute outdoor photo shoot at Shubie Park and a choice of one 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, or eight wallet-size prints (a $140.99 total value).
Wyse Photos operates on the mantra that patience is the key to capturing people and pets at their most authentic. Sessions begin with up to 10 people getting comfortable in the provided space as they feel the glow of a four-point lighting system and sniff Wyse's high-end cameras. The in-studio shoot provides a variety of backgrounds and props, and shots are instantly loaded into a computer for models to pick one image to enlarge to an 11"x14" print (a $47.99 value) and a choice of one 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, or eight wallet-size prints (a $20.99 value). Additional prints can be purchased after the session for a fee.
Alternately, Wyse arranges outdoor shoots, giving subjects 90 minutes to strike their best individual poses, pal around for spontaneous group shots, or ride a pet komodo dragon in a liberating outdoor setting (a $120 value). The outdoor option includes a choice of one image to turn into one 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, or eight wallet-size prints (a $20.99 value). Shoots for this offer take place at Shubie Park, though Wyse can also accommodate other location requests in the Halifax metro area for an additional sitting fee (around $190; inquire with Wyse).
Wyse Photography's shot-snappers attribute their success in capturing memorable family and pet portraits to an abundance of patience and a willingness to embarrass themselves. Goofy sounds and wacky contortions are a few of the key weapons in their arsenal for commanding the attention of infants, toddlers, cats, and dogs. No sitting fee is assessed for studio sessions, and print orders are cheaper by the sheet when ordered in bulk. In addition to specialty portrait services, the image-capturing experts occasionally offer basic photography classes at the studio, on the Internet, or in the Phantom Zone.
