Hi. I’m Josh, a freelance commercial, editorial, and portrait photographer based in Rhode Island.
For the last ten years or so, I’ve been lucky enough to make a living taking photos of interesting people, places, and things.
A while back, I read a really great quote from Jeff Bridges, which I think sums up my approach to photography (and life, I guess): I prefer authenticity to perfection.

Hi, I’m Larisa! I’m a commercial food photographer, content creator, and stylist in the New Jersey and New York City area.
I’m passionate about food. I love learning about it, making it, sharing it, and eating it. Growing up in NYC gave me exposure to amazing food from all over the world. Binging on Food Network taught me about techniques and methods. Food photography allowed me to capture my passion in a more permanent way, even with those who weren’t at my dinner table.
I love capturing the crusty loaf of bread (mostly sourdough in my kitchen, and for the record, I was making it before the pandemic sourdough craze) or the gleam of the perfect buttercream from my never-ending cupcake endeavors.
When I’m not photographing food or collecting new photo props, I love traveling and sneaking veggies into my husband and two children. We live in Central NJ and have some pretty amazing fresh produce available from local farms.

After studying art history and photojournalism at UC Berkeley and working for several notable international photojournalists, Meg built a busy career as a professional photographer and helped redefine wedding photography. Her clients have included Anne Hathaway, LeAnne Rimes, Jimmy Kimmel, and the late Robin Williams, among others.
Meg captures unfussy elegance with authenticity and brings that same sensitivity to her commercial work. Recently she photographed the first same-sex wedding fashion campaign for The Men’s Wearhouse,
and her third cookbook shoot (Gather, Casual Cooking from Wine Country Gardens) with over 300 of her images, was awarded the 2021 Independent Publisher Cookbook Award.
Local to Napa Valley (SF Bay Area) and Los Angeles, Meg has worked on jobs in France, Italy, the Bahamas, West Indies and Mexico.
A product of two blue collar families from western Maryland, it seemed pretty likely that I was not going to escape a little hard work. Growing up outside Washington, DC, much of life was spent outdoors. Lucky for me, I had a Dad that practically lived outdoors, following him out the door to find something worth pursuing, building or taking apart was not a problem.
In middle school, I began to draw and nature became my subject. Sometime late in high school, my interest gradually turned to photography. Full of enthusiasm, uncertainty and encouragement from my teachers, I headed to college to become a graphic designer. Two years into my graphic design education, I switched to photography and graduated with a BFA in Photography from the University of Maryland, I soon found myself in Florida where I’ve been shooting on my own since 1992.
Looking through a viewfinder has always been a way to quiet the noise in my head and given the choice between an aisle seat and a window, I will always choose the window.
Michael is a freelance photographer from Seattle, Washington, living and working in Brooklyn, New York. His photographs are defined by graphic compositions, and a strong use of color, with a body of work that includes a strong focus on travel, people, interiors culture and food.
I wish I could say I have tasted every dish I shot. People may not agree on politics, taxes or even the weather, but we surely drop our differences and come together over food. Time spent at the table with others is one of the best ways to get to know them. Photography is much the same.
Spending most of my fifteen year career as a magazine art director and photographer, I have worked with a wide variety of subjects from senators and beauty queens to chefs and turkeys. I enjoy the time with the personalities I photograph and the gratifying part is hearing their story and capturing the moment in time.
My work has been recognized in the creative industry’s leading publications: Art Director’s Club of New York Annual, the Communication Arts Design Annual, and SPOTS competition.
I often use older film cameras including an 11×14 ultra large format Burke & James, 8×10 and 4×5 pinhole cameras, and a beautiful Pentax 67. My recent favorite is a 1960’s era Polaroid Land camera converted into a 4×5 rangefinder. I live, work and play in Richmond, Virginia with my lovely and very understanding wife, two daughters and son.
Lucy is a Chicago based portrait, food and lifestyle photographer. Her thoughtful compositions, documentary approach and bold use of color result in artful storytelling across all subjects.

When not taking photos, she’s often at her studio or snacking out and about in Logan Square. She deeply appreciates a good cup of coffee and would love to read your tarot cards.

Elizabeth lives on the island of Martha’s Vineyard except when she boards the ferry or hops on a plane to travel for work.
When someone asks what I do I tell them I’m a photographer. The next question inevitably is "what kind of photographer?" Well, that’s a little tricky because I love shooting everything. It could be a national advertising campaign on location for Marriott Hotels in Mexico or shooting food in my full service 3000 sq. ft. studio for Publix or Boar’s Head. Also, It might be filming a TV spot in the Dominican Republic for Iberostar Hotels and lets not forget the family who I like to shoot while I’m on vacation. So you might say it doesn’t matter if it’s real people, talent, stills or video, personal or for hire. I love capturing the moment that I’m in. Of course, none of this can be done without working with the best people in the industry: Talent agencies, producers, assistants, wardrobe, hair & makeup, food-stylists, prop masters, retouchers and editors. I know, I sound like a jack of all trades but I love it all. So I invite you to take a look at the work and decide which side of my business is best for a project we can work on together.

J Filipe Wiens has been photographing professionally for over 10 years. His work has taken him around the world and has been featured in advertising campaigns for various companies such as Marriott International – Starwood Hotels – Kempinski Hotels – Hilton Worldwide – Hyatt Hotels Corporation- Fairmont Hotels & Resorts – Swissôtel and CBS Studios to name just a few.
Some like to take the easy road, others prefer the path less travelled. I am a fan of the latter – I thrive on challenge, detail, and problem solving. It’s that passion that makes me crave the right shot, right set, and most mouth-watering styling. Food photography is not a simple path from idea to execution – it’s an exploration and often a collaboration. When I first began to explore this type of work I knew it would make for an epic creative journey from my first attempts at lighting, to the way I continue to push myself creatively today. I am always exploring and I don’t think I’ll ever stop learning.
When I’m not in the kitchen or the studio you’ll find me happily collecting my share of sand and dirt out on the mountain bike trails in Central Florida. To me there is no better feeling than the rush you get from a job well done…except maybe the rush of rolling along a beautifully flowing trail with some happy jumps and berms in a beautiful wooded setting.
I’m Aaron! I am a New York and Detroit-based photographer and videographer specializing in Product/Still Life, Food, and Lifestyle. I enjoy shooting in a bold and graphic style for everything Still Life and food, and in my lifestyle I want to make the model look like they are having the best day they’ve ever had.
