Hi. I’m Julia. For as long as I can remember, I’ve told stories through images, from my childhood in Vermont, through college at Smith, where I majored in art history, and beyond. My extensive photography education includes stints at the SALT Center for Documentary Studies, attendance at the prestigious Eddie Adams workshop, and Review Santa Fe at Center. My career in photography began with Literacy Through Photography at the Center for Documentary Studies, after which I landed a job as assistant photo editor at Outside Magazine. For more than a decade I worked in magazines; following Outside I served as photo editor for Skiing and Backpacker. In 2011, I became a full time photographer, and my clientele ranges from Vegetarian Times to US Potato Board.

Clara is a commercial and editorial travel, interior, food and portrait/lifestyle photographer based in Zurich and Provence.
A Czech native, she grew up in Switzerland, lived in New York City for many years where she received her BFA from Parsons School of Design and now – if she's not traveling – splits her time between Zurich (Switzerland), Prague (Czechia), and Provence (France).
She has worked extensively for travel magazines and newspapers as well as ad agencies and has published a dozen books (mostly food themed).
She has always been appreciated for her sensitive approach to her subject matter while she loves to bring out the beauty in everything – be it a hotel interior detail, a dish she wouldn’t eat (like escargots!) or while roaming land- and cityscapes on travel assignments looking for that ray of late sunlight. With a sophisticated and light-hearted photographic style she aims to create pictures that spark the senses.
She is available for assignments and commercial work throughout Europe and destinations worldwide.

Buff is a commercial and editorial photographer who shoots lifestyle, food, interiors and kids. She has 20 years of experience shooting for clients across the country on both big and small productions.
Buff was born and raised in Texas and has been taking pictures as long as she can remember. She spent all her free time in high school photographing her friends and in the darkroom. Buff's undergraduate degree drew her to a career in advertising in San Francisco where she was able to work with some amazing photographic talent and continue her photography studies at UC Berkeley. She was inspired to quit her day job after a soul searching road trip and has never looked back.
Buff's passion for photography brought her to New York in 2000. She traveled extensively shooting for clients such as Travel and Leisure, Gourmet, House Beautiful, Body and Soul, Parents, Hyperion, Time Inc. and Coastal Living. Buff is energized creatively by the variety of work she's asked to shoot and capturing moments that are personal and authentic in her subjects. In 2011 Buff, her husband and son George moved their home base to Austin. But she finds herself back in NYC shooting for clients and visiting family and friends as often as possible.
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.
Rob Larson is a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based commercial and editorial photographer who enjoys photographing interesting people, broad landscapes and the suburbs at night. Available to shoot local, national, studio or location.
Rick Souders is an honors graduate from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Rick's unique creative and business background has allowed him to work at a Fortune 250 Beverage Company, then to one of the largest Advertising Agencies in the US, to owning one of America’s top food and beverage Studios.
In his own words:
I grew up in the rural high plains near the Pawnee National Grasslands. Yes, very rural. My mom worked at a portrait studio and my dad, amongst many things, was a professional leather artist and taught leather craft. So, I lived in a very creative and inspiring atmosphere. Growing up in a small town allowed me to raise chickens, rabbits, and pheasants and have many pets including toads, tarantulas, possums and a raccoon. My passion for food and agriculture runs deep. I appreciate where our food comes from and I think that has played an important role in my love of food and beverage photography. Today I live on the Studio property in a beautiful environmentally friendly ranch home. Other quirky things include a degree in Taxidermy and my 1967 Bentley.

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.
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 and capturing the right image.
Gabriella lives just a touch north of Santa Fe out in the wilds of Pojoaque with one very short and rather long chiweenie, and an opinionated flock of little feathered dinosaurs, commonly known as garden variety backyard chickens.
Gabriella is currently serving as the President of the New Mexico chapter of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers).
My work spans many different genres – from shooting people to focusing on things we wear, the things we eat, to the places we live, to the things we love, and the things we crave. I love to capture it all. People ask me to help them tell stories through a lens. I can do that – I love it.

Born and raised in the Midwest. I first became interested in the arts in high school. This is where I began my creative journey and first felt what it was like to create something entirely your own. I started my BFA with a focus on painting, though that quickly shifted into digital media. I have always been interested in and drawn to technology’s advances as well as their origins. I then started to explore sculpture and how different types of digital media could play a role in three-dimensional work. My work shifted into building my cameras while merging traditional and new photographic processes. Upon graduation, my passion for photography grew as I learned more about lighting and started to develop my photographic style.
Ruben Cabrera is a Venezuelan-born photographer and videographer based in Miami, FL. Ruben’s work has been consistently sought and displayed by a number of prominent brands and advertising clients, including Air Jordan, Nike, Four Seasons, Old Parr, Bacardi, FTD Flowers and much more. He has worked with a number of Michelin recognized chefs including Gaston Acurio, Antonio Bachour, Brad Kilgore, Jeremy Ford, Matthew Kenney, Rich Rosendale to name a few. His work can be regularly found in magazines and across advertisements.
At the age of 19, his own curiosity for the culinary world took him to the Culinary Institute of Caracas where he got his first taste of a real kitchen environment. Instantly hooked, he worked in a couple of kitchens throughout Caracas and in 2008, decided to move to Miami to further his education at Le cordon Bleu college of culinary arts. This foundation built on the back of the culinary arts gives Ruben a deep, and appreciative understanding for food and the culinary world at large that few photographers possess.
In 2022, Ruben got the opportunity to work on a campaign for the world renown artist, J Balvin, and his new collaboration with Air Jordan sneakers. These images were featured in prominent places such as Times Square, Nike’s website and many more. Whether he’s shooting food, hospitality or products, Ruben demonstrates that it’s not only the technique that makes a good photograph, but one’s personal connection and understanding of the subject matter that truly makes an image resonate.
Most recently, Ruben can be found between New York and South Florida working with some of the nation's top restaurants and chefs.
My name is Ben Sassani and I have a little infatuation with Texas BBQ and Big Bend National Park.
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 com.

Commercial Photographer and Cinematographer: Jamie Orillion, a husband, and father, shoots digital for work and film for passion. As a graphic artist, he was always in need of better images than what was being provided by his clients. Thinking “how hard can it be” he purchased his first digital camera and a lighting kit and started shooting. Through constant testing, trial and error, along with a strong determination, Jamie was naturally directed to moving from a graphic design studio to the photography business that you see today. Fueled by quality, Jamie constantly strives for the highest quality work in both personal and professional projects.

I love what I do;
