Who We Are - Staff.jpg
Isaf-Merkur Studio opened its doors in 1986 with the goal to give Central NY a one of a kind photography experience. Going into our 36th year in the industry, we pride ourselves in providing something extraordinary.  We are a family owned and operated business that creates lasting memories for you and your loved ones. We offer a big city experience right in your own home town! Several times a year Dana, Allison, and Samantha attend seminars and classes to stay at the top of their field.

We believe...
    that your family is your greatest masterpiece
    and that every memory deserves to be captured in a portrait

Dana holds countless awards from the years showcasing his skills as a photographer, both in state and national conferences. The last conference images were entered, every image entered earned a merit and recognition. Dana is a national certified professional photographer and was also awarded as a Master Photographer by Senior Photographers International back in 2011. With his years of knowledge you will be given top quality lighting, equipment and service during your portrait session!

Allison and Samantha have taken over the children & family photography. They have also been recognized and have placed most recently in 2020 at SPAC. They are also here to make sure you get exactly what you want for your portraits.
Samantha will be with you every step of your decision making process when you view and order images. You will never feel pressured to purchase more than you want! We are simply here to help guide you to get the most out of your budget. 

We pledge a 100% satisfaction guarantee to every client. We want you to be as excited about your portraits as we are. We believe that every one has something special about them and we want to capture your unique qualities in your portraits. If we ever fall short, we promise to work with you until we have exceeded your expectations.
