Bilbao- San Sebastian- Biarritz editorial and commercial photographer. A day before I was due to begin a degree at the University of Bolton, I decided Computer Sciences did not factor in my future and withdrew from the course to pursue a career in photography. From Bolton I headed East to China where, while studying for an MA in Photojournalism, I worked for a number of agencies, newspapers and magazines. In 2007 I headed back to Europe, returning to my hometown Bilbao in 2008. Currently I am based between Bilbao (Spain) and Biarritz (France) when not travelling abroad. I am represented by Panos Pictures. Since 2018 I am fully licensed drone operator.
"Ursula works in a world that mirrors our own, but never quite matches. Her art is deeply rooted in reality, and yet infused with a vitality and an energy one would only ever expect in dreams and tales. It’s approachable, enjoyable and always a lot deeper than it seems. Addictive!" Thomas Pamminger creative director "Wollzelle", Austrian agency.
I’m a commercial and editorial photographer focusing on portrait, lifestyle, corporate, plus documentary, travel, and food work. I returned to my Midwest roots (Milwaukee, WI) after ten years working as a photographer in Santa Fe, New Mexico and New York City. I work locally in Chicago and much of the Midwest, and am available for travel.
Exploration and curiosity drive my work as an artist and photographer. I am constantly framing shots in my mind, while observing the beauty and qualities of light.
I have a BFA in painting, and over twenty years of experience as a photographer.
Whether I’m one-on-one with a farmer in the orchard or working with a team in the studio, my goal is to bring a unique vision to the project.
Inspirations: mountain views, southwest desert air, finding magic in the ordinary, and getting my hands dirty in a garden.
Interests include: cheese (all dairy products in general), plant hoarding, postcard collecting, reading Bon Appétit Magazine, and and giving belly rubs to my blue heelers.
I live in Washington, DC, with my reporter wife, son and daughter.
Back in the day, I studied photojournalism at the University of Missouri and worked for some newspapers. Now, I mostly work for magazine, corporate, advertising and non-profit clients.
And when I’m not working at making images, I’m probably working over the stove, grill and/or tending bar for friends.

“My photography is inspired by people, places and things. I was trained as a photojournalist so I find inspiration everywhere — from my travels abroad to my own backyard. My biggest source of inspiration is light, especially the way it can dramatically change a scene. I love the glow of morning light through fog, the graphic shadows of noon light, the light of an overcast day, and the dramatic rose-colored light at sunset.
Rebecca Stumpf is a full-time editorial photographer specializing in travel, portraiture and documentary photography. Her passion in telling visual stories lies in understanding the connection between people and nature – how they are inspired by it and the greater world around them; how they work with it; how they connect with it; how they experience it; and the creative space between the two.
I’m a Denver-based photographer and Pulitzer finalist whose work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. I specialize in intimate portraits and documentary coverage. When telling stories, it’s not enough to convey information; people have to care about what they see. So I try to forge a relationship between the subject and the viewer then get out of the way. I also try not to take pictures I brought with me in my head. I do my homework, solve problems, meet deadlines, and know the person in front of my camera is far more important than the person behind it.

I am Bénédicte, a professional photographer based in Montreal, Quebec and available worldwide. Day after day, I savour the opportunity that this profession gives me to express my epicurean philosophy of life.
My obsession with photography dates back to elementary school when I discovered
that the camera could carry some weight on the playground. Our house had a
darkroom which was not ventilated. The fumes, together with the Stones, Dylan
and Abba were intoxicating. It’s no wonder I spent most of my childhood there.
After 40+ years of shooting, my relationship with photography is healthier than ever.
I work to balance commercial assignments, personal work and pro bono work. I have
begrudgingly lived through the transition from film to digital. If I ran for president, my
platform would be the world needs fewer, better photographs and I would heavily fund
the ‘slow photography’ movement. Putting my time where my mouth is, I have adopted
a forgotten photographic process, the photogravure, and am deeply diving into its preservation.
Hilary is very supportive of my photogravure obsession. So much so that even when
she can’t sleep, she asks about it…
