Our little friend Mr. Negative is a cranky camper. Paranoid and solitary, he is certain that the Sun and Photography 101
students are conspiring against him.
When Negative is in a rare good mood, he can be found strolling through the red light district, partaking in a rousing game of midnight kick the can,
or relaxing in a nice chemical bath.

Some might say that Miss Positive "Pollyanna" Positive is the exact opposite of her older brother, Negative Negative. Vibrant and colorful, she simply vibrates with good humor and hyperactive positive energy. For fun, Positive enjoys drinking double espresso, having friends over for slide shows, and getting a good air dusting.
Old Spool (that’s Mr. Spool to you, whippersnapper) has been around the photographic block a few times. From the Brownie to the Leica to the Nikon F100, this guy has
seen it all, and he’s not afraid to tell you about it either. Although Mr. Spool is getting on in years, he is not ready to settle into full-time retirement just yet. Old Spool spends his increasing free time
consulting with photographers, chasing kids off his lawn, and reminiscing about the good old days.

Ever the fretful little creature, Fuzzy is always concerned about everyone but herself. Her main goal in life is to make sure all of us ladies (and Lou Dobbs) look as young and ethereal and wrinkle-free as we did when we were nineteen years old. And for that, we love her. Fuzzy’s favorite pastimes are playing online Scrabble, corresponding with pen pals, and visiting the optometrist.
Straightforward and occasionally bawdy, Phil often gets a bad rap for shedding unnatural light on a situation. But when combined with a nice umbrella or softbox, our friend Phil will often reveal his more sensitive side. When Phil isn’t busy turning the eyes of our blue-eyed friends red, he can be found sleeping in, playing bass with his band “The Strobes,” and eating donuts.
Nick’s French cousin, Nicolas, is trés sophisticated. Nicolas produces modern, cultured photographs in grainy black and white, which have been shown in some of the most chic galleries á Paris. After his art openings, Nicolas enjoys reading in cafés, Paris in the springtime, and l’amour.
