Hello! We are a professional photography company based in Columbus, Ohio. Iconic Beauty Images is owned and operated by husband and wife power team Scott Schisler and Dana Hamm. We specialize in the areas of glamour, boudoir, portrait, beauty, and editorial imagery. And yes we even photograph pets! Our friendly team is predominately female based, and consists of a small tight-knit group of exceptionally talented and experienced industry leaders.
Our photographer, Scott Schisler is a highly experienced professional with over 24 years’ experience. His stunning works have been published in more than 100 magazines and publications worldwide including: catalogs, billboards, posters, calendars, greeting cards, and fashion campaigns. The best part about Scott is he is a pleasure to work with – you will not find a more patient and accommodating photographer. He has photographed women of all ages, races and body shapes for more than 2 decades, so he is a proven master of using light, dimension, and angles to bring out the very best in all of his subjects. Scott and his all-female staff use their years of combined expertise to bring out the “bombshell” in all women, even real women – from soccer moms to plus size beauties of all ages. Columbus, OH is proud to have a photographer of his standing in the city.
Our director, Dana Hamm is co-owner of IBI with her husband Scott. She is a well-known model with over 10 years’ experience. Dana has appeared on magazine covers and layouts worldwide including: Maxim, FHM, GQ, Esquire, Vogue Spain, Elle, Miami Style, Muscle & Fitness, Interview, and more! Dana is present on every shoot to bring clients her many years’ experience as our wardrobe stylist and photo shoot director. Our clients find Dana to be one of the most humble, down-to-earth people they have ever met. “At heart she is just a country girl from North Carolina who is passionate about helping clients achieve the look, poses and expressions desired for winning shots”! Her goal is to see all women look and feel their very best while celebrating their beauty in front of the camera! You will notice many of Dana’s images on our website.
We are proud to introduce our trio of incredible female hair and makeup artists: Beth, Mary and Joy. We have handpicked these 3 licensed professionals to work with IBI on a regular basis. One of these fine artists will be present on your shoot to do your makeup and hair. Beth and Mary are both in upper management with the popular cosmetic store Sephora. Beauty is their business from sun up to sun down. It’s always exciting for clients when these pros come rolling into the set with their large trucks filled with designer makeup and hair products! Joy is a full-time makeup artists with her own company based here in Columbus. All 3 ladies are superbly talented and here to meet your beauty needs before your shoot. Makeup brands commonly used on our shoots: MAC, Stila, Laura Mercier, Lorac, Smashbox, Armani, Lancome, Urban Decay
We photograph our clients in a variety of stunning locations. Obviously, we work in settings local to Columbus, OH and surrounding areas, but we also frequently go on location to shoot clients around the country and even the globe! When shooting a session on the local level we either work in our private studio located in Delaware, OH or we agree on a suitable location from our list of dependable resources where we have successfully and privately photographed other clients. We feel that basic studio photography is boring and lifeless, and we certainly don’t want all our clients to have the same settings and looks. This is frequently what you’ll find with other companies, but we have worked hard to set ourselves apart from the rest!
We realize it’s not always easy making these decisions when there are different companies to choose from. Some will try to sell you on an “all-female staff” lending too much attention to your insecurities, while others will promise you wine and hors d'oeuvres to relax your nerves. There’s nothing wrong with those things, but many of these companies are NOT made up of true professionals, but merely hobbyists who work out of small studios giving each and every client the same look and backgrounds.
We pride ourselves in giving all our clients the power of originality! No two client’s images will ever look the same. Our staff has a combined 50 years’ experience in creating beautiful photographs and works of art that will stand the test of time, which is why we have been published in some of the most recognizable magazines in the world.
Our GREATEST goal is to supersede your highest expectations with the final product…your images! We aim to produce magazine quality images with each and every one of our fine clients. We will work hard on every level to ensure that your images are unique, beautiful and timeless. We want your experience with Iconic Beauty Images to be one of your most exciting and fondness memories of all time. We believe incredible images can change lives forever!
