Inspired by the feminine curves and glamor of 40s and 50s pinup girls, photographer Karina and her assistant Kim aim to make women of all shapes and sizes feel good about themselves at Chicago Pin Up Photography. Karina uses vintage props and accessories such as vinyl records and evening gloves to wind back the clock at each photo shoot, snapping pictures of women from their most flattering angles and tingeing them with nostalgic flair.
Bill Buchelt, élan Photography's lead photographer, calls upon his 20 years of experience and a portfolio boasting such subjects as Michael Jordan and Julie Andrews to capture patrons' personalities in flattering photos. Buchelt photographs families, individuals, and seniors posing naturally in a comfortable, professional studio or among the verdant greenery of a nearby park. For a more specific shoot, the studio's photographers travel for on-location portraits and corporate sessions and offer complete wedding packages to capture couples' vows, dances, and cake-induced food comas.
For 27 years, the female-owned-and-operated Concept One has utilized state-of-the art equipment and boundless creativity to develop clients' ideas from concept to completion. Catering to everyone from large corporations to mom-and-pop businesses, the talented team can help write a script for a video, cast it with professional actors or Julliard-trained penguins, provide directing, lighting, and sound services, and edit the final outcome. They also convert old-school, analogue media to a digital format, and can duplicate CDs and DVDs, complete with color, on-disc prints, inserts, and shrink-wrap packaging.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We love photography and feel that capturing pictures of you and your family is like freezing time. Years later you can look back and see how much effort we put in to the picture of the ones you love and care for. We capture memories that last forever, why not make it a good picture.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
They say if you do what you love you will never work a day in your life. We love photography so much that we Lund out first hand that statement is true.
What do you love most about your job?
We love meeting new people and watching kids grow. Photographers are like doctors, once you find one you like you never go anywhere else. We see people every year, year after year. We see the kids as they grow...it is amazing.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
"Simply some of the BEST work I have ever seen done...PERIOD!"
