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.
I’m a photographer based in the mountains between Vancouver and Whistler. It’s a town called Squamish, and it’s an amazing little slice of BC. People call it the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada, no idea how they define that.
My favourite projects are driven by storytelling – I love working with companies and organizations that believe in the importance of brand narrative. I work with an incredible team on lots of projects, and tackle lots on my own as well. I’ve been really fortunate to chase this photography thing around the world, and I’m always excited to work on challenging gigs in crazy places.
I’ve got a really cute dog named Nootka. Don’t ask me to show you photos unless you really mean it, cause I’ve seriously got thousands. I coerce my friends into swimming in really cold alpine water with me. I laugh at almost anything. My Spotify playlist looks like it was made using a magic 8 ball.
If you want to know anything else, just ask. I’d love to talk to you.

I first fell in love with photography in the mountains. In my early twenties, I spent a lot of time traveling and playing in the outdoors, skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, and especially mountaineering. It’s also where I learned how to tell a good story. Before becoming a professional photographer, I worked for years as an editor and travel writer for magazines like Outside, Men’s Journal and Adbusters. I live in a more visual world now, but my journalistic instincts remain intact, and continue to inform my style as a photographer. I’m still chasing good stories. I just do it with my camera now. I believe there is an inherent truth in discovered moments. That the best images are both honest and believable. Creating a powerful narrative with a distinct visual character requires meticulous planning and attention to detail, a willingness to take risks, the ability to fluidly direct dynamic sequences, and the confidence to improvise and let scenes unfold naturally. My goal is to create images that don’t just feel real, but are real. How I achieve that goal may vary from shoot to shoot, but my motivation is always the same: To curate a campaign of visually distinct images that not only get it right technically, but also hit you in the gut emotionally.
I am a Corporate, Advertising, Fine Art Portrait, and Wedding photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. I started out as a documentary photographer in New York and evolved to shooting corporate and personal assignments that have an editorial and evocative style.
Much of my photography, whether it be portraits, corporate photojournalism or weddings, has an authentic, modern and intimate approach that has been very successful for the imagery I create for my clients.
I like street photography, American muscle cars, 60’s movies, and tropical locations. I love photographing people whether it’s in the studio, on location or in the street.
I’m available for assignment worldwide.
I see pictures everywhere I go. And that’s what makes life so interesting."
After college, I was hired as a staff photography assistant. I learned so much assisting other photographers those first few years, and later as a retail product photographer. I quickly realized I loved the pace of photographing people. I began to show my book around, and started getting commercial assignments. I specialize in lifestyle and portrait photography as well as directing motion. I make polished, authentic pictures that viewers relate to. I like shooting people, and I like collaborating with my subjects and other creative minds. No matter who it is or what it’s for, I find a person’s essence…through his or her environment, an expression or attitude, or anything else I see. I help set the tone to get the right image…whether that’s speaking up or shutting up. Many variables affect the outcome of a photograph; my job is to help shape them. "Generations after me will be able to see exactly what I saw. I like knowing that." Today, I’m still keen on learning new things about my craft…whether that’s video, audio or new gear. I still lug around the same camera bag I won at a photography workshop 26 years ago. I live in St. Paul, Minnesota with my wife and three children.

I have a pretty simple life. I like traveling, coffee, and laughing. . . ideally, all at once. I live on a small farm in Ireland, where my partner Olivia and I have an animal sanctuary. I was first handed an old Kodak Brownie camera at age 10. I went on to college where I studied photography and graduated at the top of my class. After a handful of photo jobs, I stumbled into producing. With its fast-paced creativity and non-stop action in captivating images, the advertising world swept me right off my feet. In my years in this industry, I’ve worked as a photographer, director and producer for clients like Sony, Cadillac, Honda, Bushmills, HP and IBM. I’ve organized and executed photo and video shoots for everything from food and yoga to homes, cars, and aerospace. If you can think of it, I’ve put a shoot together for it. After all this time, I’ve realised why I truly love what I do; I love people’s stories, and the chance to help tell those stories. And I especially love telling those stories using visual media, which brings depth and dimension to a narrative like nothing else.

My name is Dalton Johnson, I am a photographer and writer enamored with helping others design their lifestyle. Along my journey of self-discovery, I fell in love with the ability to shape my future through creativity. As photography, writing, and adventure became a profession I realized self-reflection was key in honoring this one, precious life we all are uniquely living. From oceans to deserts to mountains, my ability to apply meaning to this natural world has lead to contributions of numerous galleries and written essays for outdoor brands, magazines, and NPOs.
My ultimate goal is to rewrite the American Dream by inspiring others to design their lifestyles through rigorous introspection to consciously consume experiences instead of things.
I started my career in food, restaurant, and brand marketing. In my 10+ years as a marketer, I had lots of opportunities to oversee commercial photo shoots. It was on those shoots that I realized where my true passion lies—behind the camera, stylizing and taking photos for social media, print, and the web. Eventually, after some soul searching and encouragement, I took the plunge into self-employment. I’ve loved every minute of it.
When I’m not taking photos, you’ll probably find me at home attempting to entertain my two young children *while also* thinking of new recipes to try *while also* binge-watching a new show *while also* figuring out if I have enough time to photograph what’s in the oven before the light disappears outside.
If you’re looking for a food, lifestyle, interiors, or event photographer that specializes in creating and stylizing images for your restaurant, brand, or special event you’ve come to the right place.
Based in Rancho Santa Margarita, California
I am a commercial photographer based in Southern California, with an emphasis in creating sports lifestyle imagery.
My love for photography began when I was 11 years old with a Sports Illustrated subscription that included a free camera. Changing the plastic cameras f-stop’s from cloudy to partly cloudy, and even to the sunny setting was all the sophistication I needed to test it out the first time photographing Shamu on our family vacation. From there, as they say, the rest is history.
Having participated in sports and outdoor adventure throughout my life I naturally gravitated towards sports lifestyle imagery. It has always provided me with opportunities to challenge myself in new ways, creatively and technically. Whether I’m photographing an NBA superstar with a five minute time limit or capturing a runner in full stride, each day as a photographer is exhilarating and satisfying.

Hi… Clark here. I’m a people and location specialist based in small town Maryland; but my sense of adventure, and thankfully my clients, take me pretty much anywhere and everywhere. I cut my teeth in the still photography world where I thrive, and more recently I’ve developed my talent as a filmmaker & director. In addition to enjoying the people and exploration, one of my favorite parts of the process is pairing strong visuals & powerful moments with the soundscape that plays in my mind. I’m a huge fan of road trips, backroads, and getting lost. When I’m not working I like to ride my bikes, spend time in the mountains, or stare at a map and find a new place to get lost. I’ve been blessed to have been doing this gig for quite a while, but my dad still wants to know what I’m going to do when I grow up. I’m still hopeful that I won’t have to.
