I was an artsy kid, and from a young age I knew I wanted to pursue a career as an artist. For a while I thought I was going to be a painter but as it turns out I'm flat out terrible at painting. Fortunately for me I was given a camera as a teenager and fell in love with taking pictures.
I studied photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Afterwards I moved to Atlanta where I live with my amazing wife and my chatterbox of a step son.
A few of the great clients I’ve had the pleasure of working with in that time include Bristol Myers Squibb, Allergan, Georgia Pacific, Tom Ford, Arby's, Verizon, BULGARI, and Wilson Staff.
In addition to assignment work I enjoy pursuing personal projects and creating what I’ve been told is “Fine Art”. My fancy art-photography is represented by Kai Lin Art here in Atlanta.
When I’m not doing any of the above you can usually find me traveling disinfecting my groceries, playing banjo, or accumulating cats (most of whom don't really seem to care for the banjo music).

Clients use him again and again for his ability to look past the obvious and create imagery that is compelling and unique. He brings an editorial flair to everything from corporate portraits to product work while holding strong to the technical precision that this level of photography requires.

My name is Greg. I grew up in the South. I never say no to black coffee and chess pie. I know a little bit about a lot of stuff. Like how to tie a bowline, when to prune a rose bush and what makes a tasty rub. I like to pan-fry, sautee, bake, roast and grill whatever I can get my hands on. I married a woman who likes fast cars. Together, we have a couple of kids, a couple of dogs and a trailerful of outdoor gear that is mostly mine. I love my job because I get to meet people from all walks of life. I’ve photographed truck drivers, crabbers, mariachi and linemen. Robot makers, whiskey makers, fridge makers and nut pickers. Professional wrestlers, UN ambassadors, hall-of-famers and polka enthusiasts. Surgeons, CEOs, Air Force One pilots and brewers. Every person I frame up with my camera gives me a little more insight and a broader understanding of what it means to be a person living a life on this planet. Whether I'm telling the stories of real people or working with casting agents to gather the group you like, you can bet I’ll connect with whomever we have on the other side of my camera. Gimme a call and let’s go make some pictures!
Buff is a commercial and editorial photographer who shoots lifestyle, food, interiors and kids. She has 20 years of experience shooting for clients across the country on both big and small productions.
Buff was born and raised in Texas and has been taking pictures as long as she can remember. She spent all her free time in high school photographing her friends and in the darkroom. Buff's undergraduate degree drew her to a career in advertising in San Francisco where she was able to work with some amazing photographic talent and continue her photography studies at UC Berkeley. She was inspired to quit her day job after a soul searching road trip and has never looked back.
Buff's passion for photography brought her to New York in 2000. She traveled extensively shooting for clients such as Travel and Leisure, Gourmet, House Beautiful, Body and Soul, Parents, Hyperion, Time Inc. and Coastal Living. Buff is energized creatively by the variety of work she's asked to shoot and capturing moments that are personal and authentic in her subjects. In 2011 Buff, her husband and son George moved their home base to Austin. But she finds herself back in NYC shooting for clients and visiting family and friends as often as possible.
For over a decade, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse array of clients as a photojournalist and commercial photographer. Documenting a wide variety of spaces, individuals, and experiences; from comfortable luxury venues with Fairmont Hotels to combat training in austere conditions with the Department of Defense.
My approach to photography has been more of a process of self development rather than just treating it as a career—it’s about cultivating a sense of curiosity of the world, exploring outside my comfort zone, and connecting with people who I admire and find interesting.
What I’m most interested in are opportunities to create work that is worth sharing and to help those who I collaborate with engage with their audience on a deeper, more human level.
Gritty, intimate, honest photography casting light on the unique characters and stories that are shaping our future. Bringing life experience from global travels to military service, award winning photographer Tom Kubik evokes the infallible beauty of real human connection through lifestyle and portrait photography.
Since my early years working as a photojournalist, I’ve believed in the storytelling power of photography. My images connect as well as communicate. I’m all about fostering an authentic connection: between me and my subject, and between the viewer and the image.
Supporting my clients and their brands while telling unique visual stories of diverse bodies, ethnicities, genders and ages, in beautiful settings is the work I’m honored to do. I specialize in creating original and eye-catching fashion lifestyle imagery – the kinds of images that make you pause for a moment and appreciate. With a deep knowledge and connection to the wool industry, knitting and the fiber arts, I photograph people and products all the way from sheep farms to dye studios to fashion models in knits.

In the beginning, his mom worked there as a bouncer and Alex had many jobs there including janitor, dishwasher, busboy and a short-lived stint waiting tables.

Hi, I'm Kamil.
I'm a photographer living and working on Vancouver Island – in the Tofino/ Ucluelet area. I hold Canadian and EU passports.
I deliver artful and emotionally-rich images for advertising and editorial clients.
My personal photographic practice is centered around colours, patterns, abstracts, and contrasts. So whether I'm shooting portraits or fashion, a brand campaign, or a travel story, these naturally weave themselves into the images.
I'm currently enjoying my connection to the ocean, surfing daily, and being in a physically wild coastal environment. In the near future, I will be building a destination studio here on the west coast of Vancouver Island, to serve my personal artsy needs, but also those of clients.
I love my work, and I have a lot of fun with it.

It all starts with my grandfather, a Cuban publicist.
From my childhood, I began my journey through the world of the visual; photo after photo, logo after logo, I had my first approaches with the textures, shapes and colors that define my work today.
In my youth, while studying BANG Advertising! I discovered cameras and photography and decided to dedicate life and senses to them.

Commercial Photographer and Cinematographer: Jamie Orillion, a husband, and father, shoots digital for work and film for passion. As a graphic artist, he was always in need of better images than what was being provided by his clients.

Sushi is always a good option;
Old enough to know life before digital;

I can't remember if rugby was before or after a pink mohawk;

Pictures are cool but people's stories are cooler;
I love what I do;
Specifics are important but I just want to shoot;
Currently based in Lisbon, Portugal and raised on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, I’ve always had a strong desire to see the world. Having the opportunity to accompany my family on various trips, I was able to appreciate the ways in which people live. These experiences inspired and developed my fascination to seek out diverse cultures.
After a year of traveling in Australia 2016, I loaded up my camera gear and set out on a trip around the world. This trip originally inspired me to pursue photography and cinematography as a career. Six years and 45 + countries later, I look back and am grateful for my experiences.
Documenting my travel allows me to capture moments that I can relive at another time. Through the medium of culture, nature, and adventure, my goal is to tell stories that inspire others. While working with brands I carry on these same values. My mission is to tell their story in a way that captivates their audience and creates action.
I might start this with:
“Andy Cannon is a people-focused lifestyle and adventure, commercial photographer.”
I say that I combining brands, people and stunning natural landscapes to create imagery that resonates and has an emotional impact on the viewer.
Through grewing up travelling, and later working as an expedition leader, I had the opportunity to visit and work in many remote, challenging and beautiful locations where I met people and learnt to connect with them through visual magic and gestures and laughter. Doing so helped me develop an understanding for human emotion, authenticity and story that I take with me as visual story teller.
When we work together, I look forward to blending our creativity and connection to take your brand, your story, your idea and create something breath-taking. I’ve put together several small teams and utilising make-up artists, hair stylists, models, stylists, videographers and underwater photographers, so if you’ve got something big in mind drop me a message.
I live between Tenerife and Barcelona, but will follow a great idea anywhere.
