Gabriella Marks is a San Franciscan expat music shooter turned chef-and-farmer groupie. She arrived in New Mexico on pure intuition, but knows why she stays: the spectacular high desert light, the lenticular clouds, and the humbling experience of urging a single squash plant from the dry clay soil and ancient pueblo pottery shards in the garden. Her respect for, and relationships with, the farmers and chefs in the region grows daily.
A recognized name in the regional food world, Gabriella has been expanding her horizons to encompass lifestyle and portrait work in the Southwest and beyond.
From a working perspective, she’s driven to discover in every single shot an opportunity to frame moments and light in harmonious and striking detail. Perhaps the most single most powerful thing she has learned is how essential good listening – to the client, to the subject, to the environment – is crucial to creating the right image.
Gabriella lives just a touch north of Santa Fe out in the wilds of Pojoaque with her very short and rather long chiweenie, and an opinionated flock of little feathered dinosaurs, commonly known as garden variety backyard chickens.

Derek Reed is a commercial photographer, video director, and photo editor based in New York City. Working with some of the best known actors and models in both the fashion and entertainment industries.
The world is oversaturated with pictures!
So I prefer to create stories instead. Conceptual advertising photography is my specialty- add in a bit of surrealism and digital magic and you’re right up my alley. Whatever your product or service is, I promise the images we create together will be anything but boring.
I’m Katelin Kinney- creative, introvert, lover of ice cream, and a sucker for baby animals. As an individual to work with I’m intensely focused on my projects at hand and prefer to push past typical and into original. I love to plan and create lists which is very helpful in keeping me on schedule with all deadlines. Creating images that impress my clients truly is one of my greatest joys in life.
Some random tidbits about me: I’m from a small town with two stoplights and I love it. My celebrity crush is John Lithgow. My biggest pet peeve is poorly designed billboards. Volleyball is my sport of choice. Spiders are my kryptonite, but I love being out in the woods. I’d rather shop at Lowe’s than go to the mall. And Breaking Bad is the best television series of all time. Period.

Based in Hazle Township, Pennsylvania
I grew up in a central Pennsylvania rural farm community, surrounded by mountains and fields. From a young age I always had a fascination with drawing and buildings. Creating with my hands, and following my Dad around the yard with a saw, hammer, and plastic push mower was a common thing.
As I grew up, my interests turned to more creative aspects and included drafting and being an integral part of my schools’ arts department. Its there where my love for design and photography opened up. Once completing college, my love and passion for photography took hold. After establishing myself in the wedding and portrait photography, I branched out to discover new avenues in the field. My love for design and architecture brought me to where I am today. I am always looking and studying buildings and design elements. It’s not uncommon to see me scouring through interior design and architectural magazines for new and interesting ideas on how to see space in our three-dimensional world.
I love collaborating with other creatives, designers, architects and engineers. To me collaboration is a must in the creative process as it can help in solving problems in the moment.
At the Texas House of Representatives he worked on an ongoing documentary project photographing lawmakers during the legislative session. He soon amassed a brilliant catalog of images that were created on a work-for-hire basis and can never be published by him for money. This marked the last time he would ever be paid to shoot 35mm available light with nothing but a Leica and a bag of Tri-X. At the Texas Department of Public Safety he traveled the state for six years as a Forensic Photographer. There he amassed a brilliant catalog of images he would rather not think too hard about. His work with blood spatter patterns has been called "adequate" by several DNA and Trace Evidence analysts. He subsequently worked for renowned photographer Dan Winters, who put him to work as his assistant for several years. Sequestered in Driftwood, Texas, under Winters’ tutelage, Jeff developed his photographic skills, a strong work ethic and a penchant for Red Wings.

Mary Beth Koeth was born on June 2nd, 1982 in Ohio.
She’s the youngest of five kids whose names all begin with M…she’s still not sure why her parents, Mike and Marlene, thought that was a good idea.
Her parents moved to Texas when she was one, and she quickly embraced the Texas uniform: cowboy boots and a slight food stain on the lower bottom corner of her shirt.
She survived Catholic elementary and grade school despite the fact that she told a priest during confession that she had robbed a bank.
Koeth went to an all-girls college prep where she spent the majority of her time in the darkroom sniffing hazardous chemicals and forgetting to shave her legs.
She was a vegetarian for eight years…then lemon chicken happened.
She spent three and a half years at Texas Tech University and a semester in Florence dreaming about hot make-out sessions in the darkroom, but came out with a Design Communication degree instead.
Armed with visions of power suits and briefcases, Mary Beth moved to Kansas City to work as a designer for Hallmark Cards.
She later moved overseas to further her greeting card design skills with Hallmark UK.
