Adobe’s Lightroom and Photoshop have become the playgrounds for photograp ..read more

Leslie Hooper and her dog Dexter, photographed at Zack Smith Photography Studio Your face is your brand and your story is the lead character. I bet you never thought about your business that way before right? In the last four years photographing headshots at my studio on Magazine Street I have been amazed and in awe at the variety of ways that business owners seek to promote their brand.
