Tyra Toren started Take A Shot in 2012 as a way to provide high-quality professional photography at an affordable price to families and businesses around the Tri-State area. Nowadays, Tyra and her staff encourage creative shoots by offering clients customized photo sessions. These sessions allow clients to create a concept, determine a location, and discuss styling with the photographer prior to the photo shoot. After the photo session, clients will receive high-resolution photos to share with friends and family.
When cast members from The Real Housewives of New Jersey stopped at Marra's Restaurant for a bite, the owner asked neighboring photographer Mike Kortoci to take a picture. The ladies loved his work so much that, after a tour of his studio, they asked Mike to film an on-camera segment for the show. Snapping shots of celebs isn't uncommon for Mike—according to Ridgewood News, his famous clientele has included the Baldwin brothers and America's Next Top Model –winner CariDee English.
For the most part, however, Mike lends his artistic eye and more than 20 years of experience to creating customized portraits for his everyday clients, including kids and families. He snaps primarily black-and-white images during on-location shoots and inside his 2,000-square-foot studio. Afterward, he retouches clients' favorite shots, removing red eye or blinking specters, and preserves them on canvas or watercolor-paper prints.
Before he ran his own studio, Andrew Foord exclusively took photos of only two models: his wife and son. They encouraged him to turn his behind-the-lens hobby into a career, and soon Andrew Foord Photography was born. Rather than a simple point-and-shoot approach, Andrew creates artistic portraits of his male and female clients by using dramatic sets, poses, and lighting. During workshops, he teaches those lighting skills to amateur photographers, as well as his favorite techniques for retouching images in Adobe Photoshop.
