I’m a seeker. I crave new experiences because I believe each new language we hear, new friends we make, or new mountain we look down from offers a greater understanding of the world around us. The world is a complicated place, and we need a complex vision to match.
And so with each new shoot that I do, I bring a seekers eye, a longing to connect, a desire to try a new thing and to see not just the visible but the incorporeal as well: the enthralled musician, the athlete inflow, the confidence and verve of the fashionista, or the concern of the kind-hearted. People and places around us can inform and inspire us with their wonder to see the world more richly. I like to share that.

Geo Rittenmyer is a visual storyteller. His career began in live entertainment and advertising portraiture working with clients such as ESPN, Disney on Ice and Ralph Lauren. He has gone on to adapt a cinematic approach for instudio and branded content allowing each image to tell a story. He is known for his dynamic use of color and ability to place a vision into any discipline, whether it’s a nocturnal landscape or studio still life.

I specialize in creating conceptually and visually rich images. Working on still life, food and product photography in my studio is where I feel most at home, although paddling a kayak is a very close second. Utilizing my knowledge of technical lighting and my eye for detail, I am able to make objects appear better on screen and in print than they would to the naked eye. My work can be found in many national advertising campaigns, as well as editorial magazines, and of course, plenty of e-commerce websites. With 10 years of photographic experience and a BFA from RIT, I am ready to help you bring your shoot to life.

Editorial and Advertising
I was a contractor once upon a time, working closely with designers of all kinds. My job still requires the same thinking: to produce work where craft and design combine without a seam.
Many more pictures are on Instagram and Tumblr.
I’m a commercial and editorial portrait photographer living in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia.
From the time I was a child, I loved drawing and painting. When my dad gave me my first camera when I was 12, I saw photography as another art form, and I still do. From those early photos I realized that I prefer the warmth and grace of natural light and the simple beauty of a perfect composition.

Scott Van Osdol shoots what he loves—documentary style, commercially. He keeps it simple, clear, and compelling.
He shoots real people wherever possible. This storytelling impulse goes way back. His first solo exhibit, “Working”, opened at the Texas AFL-CIO Union Hall in 1980. Scott comes by this authenticity thing honestly.
He honed his craft old school, with big studio special effects on large-format film. He likes digital better. They’re only zeros and ones. Shoot all you want—God will make more.
His work has won more prizes than a case o’ Cracker Jacks: Lürzer’s 200 Best Ad Photographers 2020, Communication Arts Photo Annual, Graphis, PRINT, HOW, International Photography Awards, PR Week Campaign of the Year, and dozens of local and regional ADDYs.

Blair’s career began with his father sitting down with him to help teach him about photography. At the time Blair was in high school and it was for a class, however early on there was passion for the art. It was at that point that his father gave him his very first camera, a 1972 Nikon F. The camera still sits on Blair’s desk at home to remind him of the humble beginnings of his career.
Blair has had the good fortune to shoot campaigns around the globe for a diversified list of clients that range from television shows shot for The Discovery Channel to athletes photographed for Muscle Milk. In August of 2008 he decided to have his hand at photographing autos, not out of a quest for work, but in an attempt to create some images to put on his walls… He began shooting for Chevrolet two months later.
Even with the success and recognition that Blair has received in the photographic world, he still holds true that his most important legacy will be helping other photographers to be successful in their careers. On set he constantly pushes the idea that everyone is equally important, from the assistant to the photographer. This demeanor and approach towards comfortable shoots has made for clients that return for years.
Mo has been producing iconic photography for over the last twenty years. He started in London working for emerging clients such as Dazed and Confused and has since developed a style that has been described as “polished rawness” that can be seen from his series “Black Gold” to advertising clients such as Nike.
In the nineties his portrait work defined the urban, hip hop music and cultural scene photographing some of the pioneering legends of the genre culminating in an intimate behind the scenes documentary of Sean “P-Diddy” Combs.
Mo shoots and directs portraits, beauty and still life for advertising and editorial clients. He is based in New York City.
When someone asks what I do I tell them I’m a photographer. The next question inevitably is "what kind of photographer?" Well, that’s a little tricky because I love shooting everything. It could be a national advertising campaign on location for Marriott Hotels in Mexico or shooting food in my full service 3000 sq. ft. studio for Publix or Boar’s Head. Also, It might be filming a TV spot in the Dominican Republic for Iberostar Hotels and lets not forget the family who I like to shoot while I’m on vacation. So you might say it doesn’t matter if it’s real people, talent, stills or video, personal or for hire. I love capturing the moment that I’m in. Of course, none of this can be done without working with the best people in the industry: Talent agencies, producers, assistants, wardrobe, hair & makeup, food-stylists, prop masters, retouchers and editors. I know, I sound like a jack of all trades but I love it all. So I invite you to take a look at the work and decide which side of my business is best for a project we can work on together.
Quentin offers high-quality architectural and interiors photography for architecture firms, designers, commercial construction companies, hospitality brands, and home décor brands.
Quentin has helped many clients capture the essence of their work in images. These clients have gone on to get published, win awards, and grow their sales by trusting Quentin to photograph their projects.
When Quentin is not staring through a camera lens, he’s with his family sampling all the delicious food and craft beer in Virginia he can.
When I’m not staring through glass I’m usually at one of my favorite Richmond restaurants or breweries, drinking iced coffee (lots of it), or hanging out with my wife Bonnie, our son Henry, and our rescue pit bull, SpottieOttieDopaLicious.
I have made it my life’s goal to be as creative as possible and hopefully in doing so will convey the world through its subtle beauty. I have a particular passion for capturing photographs that convey the world of sports through its subtle beauty.

Go find the strange and the arresting. Make it personal, with tenderness and respect. Go analog, go tethered, go untethered, change where the sun is relative to your lens, switch out the softbox, put a grid on it. Put a gel on it. Put another gel on it. Kick the tripod. Ask if there’s another view, another room, another flavor, a favorite record, a very first book, a pair of shoes that will never be thrown away. Say yes. Ask if there’s any way they can put sod down in time for the shoot tomorrow. Ask if there’s wifi, if there’s a good sandwich shop nearby, if there are any quirks, anything they’re known for. Ask if they know any good jokes. Tell a good joke. Ask if they like their smile. Make it sing. Make it up as you go along. Make it worth the expense. Make it great.
