Local power couple Heidrun and Alan Divers spent the first ten years of their marriage searching for a business model that they could build side by side and that would cultivate their creative impulses. Today, they oversee The Great Frame Up’s three area studios, which cover artwork and photos with thousands of frame and matte combinations and prevent 3D keepsakes and sports memorabilia from selling themselves on e-Bay by enshrouding them in shadowboxes and acrylic cases. Framing jobs take place entirely on-site at each location, ensuring a speedy turnaround on projects and a personal guarantee on all craftsmanship. The Great Frame Up’s website offers tips and trends to help customers navigate the process, from choosing frames to hanging and arranging finished pieces.
For more than 20 years, the professional photographers at Charlie's Angels Photography have worked to capture images that not only preserve memories but also incorporate artistic touches. Their digital galleries boast shots from larger occasions such as weddings and runway shows to private events such as boudoir and portrait sessions. Their staff also includes professional makeup artists, who can prep subjects for shoots or gussy up complexions before weddings or high-school-graduation re-enactments.
For more than a decade, John Paul Kindig has snapped portraits, averaging more than 300 assignments annually in recent years. His striking, traditional compositions—for couples, families, and corporate clients—capture minute detail in his subjects and their surroundings. He travels throughout Pinellas County to offer scenic on-location shoots at beaches, parks, and atop abandoned spaceships that have crash-landed on Earth. After shoots wind down, clients can elect to purchase prints or a DVD containing high-definition images.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, picture perfect clients pose in the bright camera room, smiling amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following the photo shoot, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
