Lynsey Weatherspoon’s first photography teacher was her late mother, Rhonda. Like her mentor-in-her-head Carrie Mae Weems, that first camera – a gift – delivered purpose. Her career includes editorial and commercial work that has been inspired and powered by her first teacher’s love and lessons.
The #blackqueergirl is a photojournalist and portraitist based in Atlanta and Birmingham. Using both photography and filmmaking as tools to tell stories, Weatherspoon’s work has been featured in print and online in such publications as The New York Times, USA Today, NPR, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Time, ESPN and ESPN-owned The Undefeated.
As a member of a modern vanguard of photographers, she is often called on to capture heritage and history in real time. The Equal Justice Institute’s Bryan Stevenson. The National Memorial for Peace and Justice. The Legacy Museum. Ronnie the shoe repairman in downtown Birmingham. The people of the Gullah-Geechee Corridor. An entire family infected with and affected by a pandemic. Demonstrators with raised fists and sad, vulnerable eyes. The sons and daughters of history. The mothers of children who died making history. The majesty of Mardi Gras. The loving hands of family caregivers.

Hello and thanks for stoping by!
I’m an editorial and commercial photographer based out of Nashville, TN. I grew up in Louisville, KY and it will always be my home. Because of that I’m partial to bourbon, horses, and baseball bats.
When not working I enjoy exploring Nashville with my wife, playing the guitar, buying records, or planning my next big trip.
I love my job not only because I get to create something new everyday, but I get to meet new people and connect with them on something more than just what’s on the surface.
So let’s make a connection. Tell me your story!
I love collaborating with my clients and getting to know them. I do whatever it takes to put my clients at ease by making photography fun, creative and enjoyable. I work closely with my clients to take their project from concept to completion. My photo projects have taken me across the street and around the globe. Working under pressure or in a fast-paced environment comes second nature to me.
When I’m not shooting, you can probably find me in my garden, hiking something — somewhere or on my yoga mat. My alter ego to photography is being a 200 RYT at Blue Yoga Nyla in North Little Rock. When I’m not shooting, I’m teaching yoga, or deepening my own practice.
Currently based in Little Rock, Arkansas, I have degree in journalism with a photojournalism emphasis. I began my professional photography career at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette where I was a staff photographer for more than 15 years.
Based in Barranquilla, Colombia
Before photography, Juan Tapias was originally trained as an architect and his work as a professional always involves photography as a form of visual exploration. He is a photographer whose work explores the theme of the common space in relation to a globalized vision: social, cultural and economic of the places he visited in his many trips.
Documentary photography and architecture are his main interest, collaborating for different Colombian and international publications and research projects in university institutions.
I am a commercial photographer based in Portland, Oregon. When I’m not working, you can usually find me in one of two places: hole-in-the-wall taco joint or trail running up a mountain, but never crossing the two. Preferred playlist both: Morrow.
I’m passionate about telling stories, and producing images that do just that.
Based in Santa Monica, California
Natasha is a Travel, Food & Lifestyle Photographer whose visuals evoke a sense of presence, of the fleeting moments that make an experience memorable. Her work is steeped in a sense of leisure, like taking time to lay out on a beachside hammock, to dig into a handcrafted salad, to stay in bed a bit longer to watch the light break through the shades. These visceral, intimate qualities make her images feel true, like the tug of familiar memories. From elaborate productions to intimate editorial shoots, she captures moments that invite viewers to experience new tastes, possibilities, and perspectives. Having split her childhood between Malaysia and California, she moves seamlessly across cultures, spaces, and interactions. Driving her imagery is the sense that no matter where we go or where we’re from, an unbreakable human connection links us together.
I’m a documentary filmmaker and photographer from Brooklyn, NY. Widely exhibited, my work consists largely of telling well-intentioned and respectful stories about people on journeys – people who either are experiencing great challenges or who have overcome such challenges. My most recent film project, "Hello Sunshine”, profiles a woman who has survived decades of gun violence and domestic violence trauma and has channeled these traumas into service – saving the lives of those in active opioid addiction and supporting the families of murder victims.
In addition, I have an on-going project about the impact of gun violence on a diverse group of Americans. Young, old, rich, poor, in big cities and in rural communities – “It Takes Us” shows how gun violence cuts through the heart of the country. “It Takes Us” has been published globally and presented at colleges, universities, medical centers, and more.

A product of two blue collar families from western Maryland, it seemed pretty likely that I was not going to escape a little hard work. Growing up outside Washington, DC, much of life was spent outdoors. Lucky for me, I had a Dad that practically lived outdoors, following him out the door to find something worth pursuing, building or taking apart was not a problem.
In middle school, I began to draw and nature became my subject. Sometime late in high school, my interest gradually turned to photography. Full of enthusiasm, uncertainty and encouragement from my teachers, I headed to college to become a graphic designer. Two years into my graphic design education, I switched to photography and graduated with a BFA in Photography from the University of Maryland, I soon found myself in Florida where I’ve been shooting on my own since 1992.
Looking through a viewfinder has always been a way to quiet the noise in my head and given the choice between an aisle seat and a window, I will always choose the window.
I am an Atlanta based photographer focusing on food and lifestyle. With experience in art direction, creating concepts, and seeing them through to completion, I am happiest when I collaborate creatively with a team.
I’ve worked as a professional commercial photographer since 2012. After earning a BFA in photography at Georgia State University, I have spent time with fascinating people and mission-driven companies in the field and in the studio.
Based in Kensington, Maryland
One of the best parts of being a photographer is all the great people I get to meet along the way. Whether I am photographing sports and fitness, lifestyle, or corporate, its always about making a connection.
I love collaborating and working together to bring an idea to life. I believe in planning every detail but also know how to deal with the unexpected when it arises. I’m based out of the DC area but always up for traveling to where the shot is needed.
Based in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I am a photographer based out of the Philadelphia area. I shoot a lot of stuff, but basically I am a portrait photographer. Whether I am in the classroom or on the fields, or shooting an event, I am always looking for the candid portrait. I love capturing the reality in people. Their spontaneity. I hope it shows.
My true north: I am a photographer, storyteller, and traveler. Growing up with a mom who always had one eye behind her Canon AE1, my appreciation for capturing images is well-rooted in my genes. Specializing in connecting with subjects on a personal level, I strive to capture sincere expressions and moments. New projects and environments energize me, and I am always eager to travel to catch the story.
A few ideas for photo assignments or projects I am especially interested in:
Women in farming, organic agriculture in general, projects about the American Midwest, art activism, women fighting for social justice using art, stories regarding orthorexia, ESL teachers abroad (specifically Japan, where my experience was), rural Japan, death and dying, hospice care, aging in rural areas . . .
I’ve worked on staff for Florida and California newspapers and I now freelance from San Diego, working anywhere editorial assignments take me. During my time as a newspaper employee I also worked as a business columnist, copy editor and illustrator.
I have a San Diego Police Department media credential and a current US passport. My Spanish skills are good enough for me to hail a cab and feed myself when I’m in Mexico – muy importante! I’m a member of the National Press Photographers Association and the American Society of Media Photographers.
I also have a background in video and audio production and I maintain a collection of related equipment and software. Although my concentration is on still photography, if your project requires multimedia content in addition to still images I can deliver high quality files or a finished product with titles and music.
Before beginning my photography career I served in the US Navy, flying as a sensor operator in S-3A Vikings from USS Carl Vinson.
