Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.
At Dallas Frame & Arts, expert staffers navigate a selection of more than 4,000 frame mouldings to help customers find one that showcases their prints, matches their decor, and fits their budget. Their diverse styles range from rustic wood and modern metal to ornate gold leaf and whimsical heart and oval shapes. The staff also taps into 25 years of experience to design frames and mats that fit and preserve your prints. In addition, they can create custom shadowboxes to display sentimental objects or secure grandpa's consistently misplaced reading glasses.
The shop also stocks artwork, prints, and posters from internationally famous names such as Thomas Kinkade, as well as regional artists including Alex Halliburton, Jack Ellis, and Robert Bailey.
When discussing the evolution of photographic technology, Chris Bernard says, “It’s not about the camera. It’s about the story. It’s about the vision.” Using a wealth of backgrounds, lighting techniques, and angles, he captures each subject’s unique personality during bridal, lifestyle, and boudoir photo shoots. To prep clients for photo shoots, his makeup artist, Lily, can apply foundation and rouge to faces or to hands that will double as expressive puppets. After photo shoots, Chris heads to the editing room, where he touches up images before turning his attention to the production of custom products such as bridal albums, DVD booklets, and frames.
For 15 years, Cindy Gannon has photographed children, families, and events, travelling the world to snap vibrant wedding images that capture emotional moments. She aims to keep photo sessions relaxed and enjoyable for her subjects, whether they're out shooting on-location engagement sessions or posing in her loft-like studio, which can hold up to 30 people for team portraits or clone reunion shots. Other photo shoot options range from
family photography to boudoir shoots.
