Sandy Noto is a food and travel photographer. Her specialities include pantomiming to order delicious meals abroad, finding the cutest pastry shop in any city and inviting herself over to your next dinner party. She is particularly proud to have photographed 256 restaurants and counting without any major mishaps, just a few creative messes. Her style is bright, energetic and happy. When she’s not writing about herself in third person or working as a photographer, Sandy can generally be found at home in Chicago baking or hanging out with her pets and husband, Eli.
Her work has appeared in Food & Wine, The Wall St. Journal and Chicago Tribune and she’s worked with broad range of food and travel focused brands. She’s partial to any assignments with a collaborative component or an opportunity to travel.
I almost can’t believe that this is my job now. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to photograph food and food stories, for boutique food companies and national brands, restaurants and resorts, chefs and purveyors, farmers and wine makers. I’m most interested in storytelling, in the intersection between people and place and food.
I worked as a sushi chef for over a decade before I traded my knife for a camera. When I’m not photographing food, I’m cooking at home, or traveling for it. I’m a sucker for chorizo tacos, and if brownie-a-la-mode is on a menu, I’m bound by a personal code to order it. My girlfriend calls me a “light dork”, because wherever I find myself, I’m distracted by it and turning over where to find it again or how to recreate it.
As a sushi chef, I became comfortable being publicly under pressure with packed tables, a full bar and a line out the door, or when the restaurant was slow, I was often the entertainment in an intimate setting. I learned how to read a room, to enjoy working with and in front of, a wide variety of people and personalities. It was a wild ride. No night was ever the same and I came to truly value grace under pressure, communication, flexibility and teamwork.

Hi, I’m John. I am a commercial and editorial photographer specializing in lifestyle, fashion, and beauty imagery. I enjoy telling stories with pictures of people.
I grew up on the banks of the Tennessee River, in an area of northern Alabama best known for its legendary recording studios and its ample fresh water. The grandson of a boat builder, I spent most of my childhood splashing around in the latter. My love for being in, on, and near the water continues to this day and has led me to the shores of South Florida, where I live with my wife, Erin, and our daughter, Emilia. (You may even see water make an appearance in my work from
time to time.) I picked up the camera professionally in 2010, two years after our move to Miami, and have not looked back.
When not working on a project, I can be found teaching photography classes, playing guitar for an audience of two, debating the intricacies of life with a toddler, or predictably, somewhere near the water.

What did you want to be when you grew up? I almost became a Nuclear Engineer. Thankfully, after about a year of college physics and math, my creative brain cells wrestled control over the nerdy geek in me and pointed me to Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara. I still have a bit of that nerdy geek in me, but in a creative photographic way. The San Francisco Bay Area is where I landed after graduation and where I launched Vantage Point Photography. I love what I do. I love the process. I love creating images that cause people to pause, to look, to think and sometimes to smile. My other loves? My kids, our dog, a good hiking trail, and my SX 70 loaded with Polaroid film.
Hello! I’m Quentin Penn-Hollar. I call Richmond home now, but grew up in the mountains of Madison County, VA and honed my photography skills living in New York City.
I specialize in shooting spaces inside and out.
I became more than a point-and-shoot photographer when my uncle, Madison County photographer John Berry (www.johnberryphotography.com), “loaned” me one of his back-up cameras. He never got that camera back (don’t worry, he’s okay with it).
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.
Based in Rancho Santa Margarita, California
I am a commercial photographer based in Southern California, with an emphasis in creating sports lifestyle imagery.
My love for photography began when I was 11 years old with a Sports Illustrated subscription that included a free camera. Changing the plastic cameras f-stop’s from cloudy to partly cloudy, and even to the sunny setting was all the sophistication I needed to test it out the first time photographing Shamu on our family vacation. From there, as they say, the rest is history.
Having participated in sports and outdoor adventure throughout my life I naturally gravitated towards sports lifestyle imagery. It has always provided me with opportunities to challenge myself in new ways, creatively and technically. Whether I’m photographing an NBA superstar with a five minute time limit or capturing a runner in full stride, each day as a photographer is exhilarating and satisfying.
Balancing his signature cowboy aesthetic with a background in fashion, photographer and director Scott Slusher is just as comfortable shooting a Times Square beauty campaign as he is capturing the white-knucked action of the rodeo. The photographer and motion artist has a degree in fashion design from the Art Institute of Dallas and has been recognized by the Shorty Awards.
Scott’s father, a famous Oklahoma horse doctor, gave him his first film camera, which sparked a lifelong fascination with the rugged beauty of the West. Scott’s imagery tells the stories of grizzled motorcyclists, noble steers, sharp-eyed cowgirls and lifelong artisans. Despite always being in the center of the action, his imagery is less defined by adrenaline-fueled dramatic moments, but rather the controlled burn of a wider narrative.
Scott is based in Dallas, Texas and can usually be spotted by his trademark neckerchief.
"I like the unusual, the moment just before the ‘perfect picture’ and the beauty in reality."
I still have the first photograph I ever took on my mood board: a Polaroid of my mother, father, and dog. I took it at the age of three after my parents handed me the camera because they were tired of never seeing themselves in the family photo albums.
From there, I became obsessed with capturing visual memories, setting up shoots with my friends in a make-shift studio (a sheet and some props), and devouring my mother’s old LIFE magazines for inspiration.
After many years (and jazz music school), I started getting hired for portrait sessions and documenting the lives of others, and I realized that what had been my hobby and passion could actually be my profession.
So thirteen years later, I’ve never looked back. I’ve been fortunate to work among many talented professionals in the industry and to see my work in The New York Times and publications like Dwell and GQ. I love peeking into the lives of others and capturing it all in an intimate, genuine, and creative way.
I am a commercial lifestyle and editorial photographer with roots in family photojournalism. My work best serves brands who want to help people aspire to collect moments rather than things: experiential activities, family-friendly services, artisans, museums, education, minimalistic living, agrotourism, family travel, social documentary work, and visual ethnographies.
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.

My name is Ben Sassani and I have a little infatuation with Texas BBQ and Big Bend National Park.
I’ve been shooting weddings, portraits, and events since 2008. But in 2013 I went to west Texas for the first time and fell in love with the landscape and night sky. I’ve been back ever since at least once a year. I’ve hiked, camped, and slept under the stars in other national parks, and to me, none compare to Big Bend.
I grew up with BBQ in Texas, but fell in love with the craft style BBQ in 2014. Since then I’ve traveled all around the country from New York to LA eating all types of BBQ (Texas style mainly) and making friends with the pitmasters the ones responsible for making the amazing food.
My love for portraits has led me to doing portraits of folks in the BBQ community accompanied with stories from them on BBQ Confessional.
My love for West Texas and Big Bend has led me to doing landscapes, cityscapes, and nightscapes around the country.
I appreciate everyone who has supported me throughout this journey and hope to keep doing all this for a long time to come
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.
