Chris’ interest in photography started with his sister’s camera and a sixth grade trip to Washington DC. After getting a taste of the big life on a greyhound bus, the road trips with camera in hand have continued to be a passionate part of Chris’ life. Wise choice! The road went thru Clemson, SC before traveling down I-85 to the Art Institute of Atlanta. A small business sprouted and Chris’ initial success in Architecture photography included a photo spread in Interior Design Magazine’s Top Ten.
His road took a u-turn when it led him to Sports Illustrated. They featured his NBA photography in a 12-page photo only spread and his business exploded. The photography road has never been the same with stops at the Grand Canyon, Oval Office, Super Bowl, the Acropolis, Indy 500, Sydney Harbour, NBA Finals, NY Skyscrapers, Las Ramblas, World Series and on any beach he can get his hands (with camera) on. His photography road now includes a diversity of subjects from architecture to athletes, from children to CEOs, and from fine art to resorts.

Hello, I’m Rachel and I live in Vancouver, BC on the west coast of Canada. I am inspired by the complexity of humans and curious about the stories beneath the surface of an image. Recently, I’m more and more interested in how we as humans inhabit our bodies, how we may try to hide or take up space — the ways our relationship between body and concept of ourselves is complex. My portrait and editorial work takes me into the worlds of music, art and design, social justice, new media, education, and technology. I’m always listening, observing and want to craft images that invite a viewer to pause and see a side to a story.
With a BA in Communications and a side of English and art, I’m always seeking ways to tell a story through images, finding (or making) the right light and genuine moments between people. So far, I’ve visited seven of Canada’s 10 provinces and territories and travelled in Europe, Asia, the USA and Australia. I live in part of a 100 year old house with my musician husband, 4 year old son and baby girl.
Hi, I’m Bobby!
Born and raised in the storied South Carolina Lowcountry, my soul reeks of pluff mud and hickory-smoked pork. I consider myself a true field to plate photographer. There is something special to be said about being connected to your food. The cultures ingrained in the South are where I draw inspiration. Let’s go devour some BBQ, sip sweet tea, and make big plans. Or just call me. You’re literally a phone call away from a great time. Just look what Joe Rogan didn’t say about me on his podcast: “Bobby is like the perfect storm, a tsunami of awesome.”
In nearly two decades in the commercial photography industry, Natalia proves a skillful dedication to the entire photography production process. During college, she kept her nose in the books for her commercial photography degree while working for internationally known photographers from coast-to-coast including Pete Barrett and Jim Erickson. Returning to NC, she worked as an independent retoucher and producer and began work with Jimmy Williams as Studio Manager.
As a freelance photographer since 2007, Natalia travels with the lens of a storyteller. In addition to corporate and agency commissions, her immersive photographs have captured the landscapes of Southeast Asia, her own extended family dinner table in Chile, and delicate portraiture of coconut farmers in Panama. When she isn’t packing a suitcase or behind the viewfinder or monitor, Natalia can be found at home in Durham, NC stopping in on classes at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies, volunteering for environmental and social causes, or joining friends on spontaneous bicycle tours. As a former professional salsa dancer, she occasionally dusts off her heels and hits the pista de baile.

Authentic, emotive, and unusual, my images tell stories even when they stand alone.
After a couple decades running my own shop and honing my craft as a commercial and editorial photographer, I’m still enamored with the language and allure of the medium. I’m known for my ability to put people at ease — even or especially when they don’t love having their picture taken.
A successful shoot is about more than great images; it’s about great customer service. It should be a fun, thorough, and satisfying experience for the client. I enjoy the thrill of overseeing production with a crew of thirty, but also never tire of the intimacy of a small shoot. Assignments have taken me across the country from Memphis to Raleigh to Virginia Beach to Los Angeles. I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of professional talent and real people – from the executive team of a global biotech firm, to presidential primary candidates, to unhoused teens aging out of foster care.
In 2019, I relocated from St. Louis to the Pacific Northwest, and now live in weird and magical Portland with my brilliant wife Jackie and our two boys, Jupiter and George.

I live for the creative process. That’s all that matters to me.
To create, to experience and to improve, for the love of the craft.
It’s a strong impulse, apparent but hard to explain.
Born in 1985 in Campobasso, Italy. During the last years of high school I become interested in the visual arts spending countless hours studying books and making personal projects. Soon after that I began to work with stills and motion pictures as 3D animator in the entertainment industry on movies and video-games,
where I had the chance to learn from really talented people. It was a great experience. After 8 years I felt the need to personally express myself through images.
Photography allow me to do so, while applying everything I learned from my previous career in animation, I combine my strong passion for the visual arts with my deep love for traveling.
I shoot high-end travel and landscape photography for leading agencies and for various clients in the tourism business.

I am a photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin and am available for assignments and collaborations nationwide.
I’m drawn to exploring and understanding cultures and communities both within my own country and abroad. Trust, intimacy, and time are cornerstones of my work, and I believe in using photography as a tool for education, awareness, and understanding. The first time I remember thinking to myself, “I want to take this woman’s picture,” it was because, at 13, I wanted to be able to say more than my words were able to explain. There’s something that happens within the taking and sharing of a photograph that still drives my passion today and still leaves me infinitely curious about the world and the people around me.
I have restless feet. I’ve traveled through eleven countries, including Guatemala, Honduras, Sweden, China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia, and I hope to see many more.
