I love what I do. The challenge of making new and compelling images for my clients or for my personal work keeps me moving forward. And meeting new and interesting people is a great perk to any job.
I’m always inspired by travel to new locations and new ideas.
Starting out in Florida with an English degree, I then moved out to Boulder, Colorado, where I earned my MA in Journalism from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I might have also spent some time hiking and snowboarding while I was out there . . . .

I am a commercial and editorial photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. The youngest of four kids in a military family, there were five stamps in my passport by the time I was five years old. My father retired from the air force just before I entered kindergarten and we moved to North Florida where life became more predictable. A few years later, I began to take pictures (mostly of my pets and friends) with my mom’s point-and-shoot to entertain myself and also because I loved going to K-Mart where I could sit at the counter and talk to people while waiting for my prints to shuffle out of the machine. my work is a combination of storytelling and portraiture, often with a focus on social issues. My roots are in the American south and I am as passionate about doing work here as any other place in the world. I am a Spanish-speaker (also fluent in non-verbal communication) and have worked extensively in central and south America, Europe, and Asia.

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.

I live in Washington, DC, with my reporter wife; son, Cillian; and daughter, Orla. You might catch a glimpse of them here.
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.
After attending Central Michigan University earning degrees in both fine art photography and psychology, followed by a three year stint working in finance, Sullivan headed south to Arizona where he turned his love of photography into a full-time occupation.
A visual storyteller and portrait seeker he aims to entertain at times yet find the true subject somewhere in all of it simultaneously, be it shooting celebrities, athletes, or the guy next door. Today, with far reaching clients, Sullivan is one of the most well respected photographers in the Phoenix Metro area.
His fine art has been shown in numbers galleries and museums around the states, including locally at the Phoenix Art Museum. Now, take the photographic world of Brandon Sullivan and fuse it with the illustrative world of Kyle Lane where collaborative designs burst through traditionally framed boundaries of visual storytelling. With their unique visual form that combines the most crucial aspects of each of their distinctive talents they are making an altogether integrated and innovative style now referred to as fotostration.
Sullivan works out of and co-owns Legend City Studios.

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.
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!
Matthew Rakola (né Hakola) is a proud Maine native who learned how to photograph people by bartending. Both professions require the ability to read people quickly, anticipate their needs, and most importantly–listen. To be fair, he also learned a thing or two as a commercial photography major at Syracuse University, where he spent hundreds of hours up to his elbows in smelly photo chemistry.
I guess It’s fair that he got most of his professional training while washing dishes.
Today he uses all of these skills and more as a commercial, advertising and editorial photographer based in Washington, DC. He specializes in photographing real people doing real things and still loves to listen and learn on the job.
When he’s not writing about himself in the third person or making images, he’s probably with wife, chasing their two sons around. He’s actively lobbying his family for a pet skunk, who he is going to name Kodak. In the meantime he dotes on his two goldfish, Becky and Swimmy.
For me, photography has always been about exploration. It’s about solving problems, whether it be creative or technical. It’s about learning new ways of seeing and being able to share that vision with the world.
My process is based on authenticity and creating comfortable environments where real interactions can happen. It’s about enjoyment, about seeing people enjoy what I make, and about learning which lens each project or client require me to look through.
I am a creative thinker with a blue collar work ethic. I work hard and expect those around me to do the same, but I make sure we’re all having fun. I am patient, flexible and understanding and I know how to tell stories that relate to real people.
Located in Pennsylvania. Working in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York, DC, Baltimore.
Available for assignment worldwide. I like to travel.
Matt is an award-winning editorial portrait, commercial advertising, industrial, and sports photographer out of a southern town just a few minutes south of Atlanta called Macon. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Mercer University in Human Services ( he’s a people person) Back in the day, he tried his hand in TV as a commercial TV producer and was promoted to a sports reporter. During his time there he shot local news and a little photography (he stuck with the latter). When he’s not on assignment, he’s more than likely watching his favorite soccer team Arsenal FC, boxing, coaching soccer, reading, drinking hazelnut coffee, or listening to 80’s music (and yes he’s a huge Hall and Oates fan). He’s also an avid comic collector who is one of a few people to hold an original copy of the 1984 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 first print…COWABUNGA
Matt is available to travel for assignments within the US and internationally. He keeps his passport ready!
I make pictures primarily for editorial, corporate, science/technology, education, and advertising clients with a focus on environmental portraiture and story telling style documentary photography. Everything from landscape to food, architecture, fashion is fair game though. Love getting the call, collaborating on the process and engaging with new subjects.

Call him Doug. It’s only "Douglas" because douglevy.com was taken.
Doug grew up halfway between Boston and Providence and now lives just north of the city, but,
Doug spent six years umpiring professional baseball.
So he’s not really a huge Red Sox fan.
Doug started umpiring Little League games when he was 13.
Doug believes that photos should show who you are, not just what you look like.
Doug thinks that if you ever find yourself in Birmingham, you need to eat barbeque at Jim ‘n Nicks.
Doug thinks everything tastes better with hot sauce.
Except for cereal, that would be weird.
Doug also knows that there is a Bruce Springsteen song for every occasion.
I’m Steve Boxall. I’m a commercial and editorial fashion/lifestyle photographer, specializing in children. In fact, I like to think that my images are where fashion and lifestyle meet. For me, it’s all about capturing images of a fabulous life.

Businesses should compete based on great stories. Pure and simple. It’s my job to draw out and photograph your stories in a way that causes customers to click with your brand. Nashville-based photographer and visual storyteller with a great love of people. My work is focused on telling better stories for your website, social media, blog, print collateral, and in-house displays.

Born and raised in the South with a deep appreciation for roots, narrative & quality. I grew up watching light slant through Georgia pine trees and it changed the way I see.
Lover of hospitality, rocking chairs, deep conversations
and the word "ya’ll."
This is usually the area where photographers pretentiously posture as if they just cured cancer. They talk about how they connect spiritually with their subjects or how they’ve been influenced by Pee Wee Herman. Whatever. I find it quite annoying. In that spirit, I’ll keep my pitch short and sweet.
Here’s what you need to know about me. I have more than 30 years experience in newspaper, magazine and commercial photography. I was a director of photography for a midwest ad agency as well as for the Topeka Capital-Journal.I shared in a Pulitzer Prize at the Kansas City Star for its coverage of the Hyatt Skywalk Collapse in 1981. A small piece of it, but a Pulitzer nonetheless.
I like to have fun. I ride a road bike a lot, and my family is my number one priority. I won’t tolerate intolerance. I don’t like it when people talk on their cell phones while driving. It’s dangerous. I play the uilleann pipes. I went to law school with my daughter. But the most important things you need to know about me are: I am easy to work with, I don’t take myself too seriously, and I produce great work on a budget and on deadline.
And now, I’m a FAA Part 107 Certified Drone pilot offering photography from an aerial perspective, too.
I’m a Los Angeles based portrait and lifestyle photographer living and working on both coasts. I love collaborating with people and being thrown into different situations. There is a unique story behind every face and I rely on those unexpected details to make images that are as special as the people. With the help of great crew, we strive to make magic happen for all of my clients. When I’m not making pictures I’m training for marathons or playing ice hockey to stay healthy, sane and inspired.
Home base is currently the Eagle Rock neighborhood of North East LA where I live with my wife, daughter, large cat and Guinea Pig.
