I have always had a vivid imagination and restless spirit. Growing up, I resisted routine. I dreamt in moving and still images. I imagined the light that burns inside people shining outward, giving colour to space and objects, spreading like long fingers over my community to move life like a musician makes music. The things I imagined told the story of my life and all its contradictions; more than anything, I wanted to capture that life. Soon, I discovered photography and the means of capturing it was in my hands. The beauty in the everyday existence of ordinary people that I once imagined became the subject of my art, through which I capture images focusing on the human face and its unique ability to convey a person’s spirit. There is nothing else like it. My photographs are thus inspired by the ineffable and under-appreciated quality of the human face as unlike anything else in existence. It is, on one level, as profane as any body part, made of flesh and common enough among people; and yet our faces are unmatched in their abilities to reveal, if even fleetingly, something divine. Through portraiture – indeed, the photographic study of the face – my work emphasizes that which reveals us and conceals us, defines and perplexes us, moves and stupefies us, eludes and demands knowing. My portraits depict the intersectionality of the human face as a liminal subject joining the sacred and profane.

Hello! I am a Dubai-based commercial photographer. I began my career as a graphic designer. However, my passion for lights, shades and colors led to me morphing into a photographer.
Light is something that has always fascinated me. The same location seen at different times under different light conditions leaves the photographer in me amazed. Most of my photography inspirations are from cinema; cinematographer Roger Deakins is my all time favorite. Some day I hope to possess a portfolio – and a professional attitude – similar to that great man!
Over the last 10 years in the UAE, I’ve contributed my photography skills to magazines such as BBC Good Food, CitizenK, WatchTime, InsideOut, Friday, Gulf News and Discovery, to name a few.
I love meeting and interacting with people every day… some of them I take along in this journey called life.
Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I’m a commercial and editorial photographer based in Philadelphia and ready to travel anywhere. What does that mean, exactly? I work with anyone who has a story to tell about their brand and recognizes the value of images to accomplish that. I work with small non-profits and large pharmaceutical companies alike, always with the goal of conveying emotion and authenticity by connecting with the people I photograph. I’d like to think that the greatest skill I bring to a photo shoot has nothing to do with cameras or lighting, it’s empathy and respect for the people who trust me to tell their stories.

My fascination towards the images started when I was a little boy by discovering my old brother´s photography magazine collection. That is how I started, without even knowing, to get familiar with the most important photographers, those years were key for building my visual universe.
While studying Advertising, of course, I continued to look at magazines, among the titles, I reviewed two classic magazines that always popped into my eyes: Esquire and Vanity Fair.
Then I decided to dive deep into my studies and took a master course on photography. What came after, from 2002, was a great time of putting myself to test and show what I’ve learned. Then, I straighten my job by portraying celebrities, fashion models, actors, etc. As an editorial photographer, I have had the chance to work for the most important magazines in my country and some of the best in the world.
Nonetheless, the biggest challenge of my professional career was when I worked as a photography director of Esquire Colombia for four years. This experience was essential for my work to evolve. My dream came true, my photography work arrived at the pages of one of the magazines I had admired all my life.
I’m a commercial and editorial photographer based in Fort Myers, the Heart of Southwest Florida.
Specializing in portrait and lifestyle images, my background in photojournalism has helped shape the look and feel of my work.
Originally from Northern Wisconsin, I moved to the South Florida as a teenager and learned to love photography after my parents subscribed to the St. Petersburg Times (now Tampa Bay Times) newspaper. That paper was and still is an incredible publication that churns out amazing work on a daily basis and helped shape who I am today.
I worked my way through high school in the One Hour Photo Lab of a neighborhood Eckerd Drug Store, an experience that exposed me to the technical aspects of photography, and offered an opportunity to learn from the successes and mistakes of tourists and amateur photographers who would come in on a daily basis.
I went on to graduate from the University of Florida with a degree in Journalism, which offered editorial photography opportunities. I was soon working as a correspondent for wires like AP and Getty, and newspapers like USA Today and the New York Times.
In recent years I have transitioned to more commercial and corporate work, often lending the same journalistic style of photography to clients, creating a modern and realistic look for their brands.
I call Southwest Florida home, an area that includes Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples and Marco Island. Sarasota, Bradenton and Tampa / St. Petersburg are a short easy cruise up I-75 from here. We are also a quick and fun road trip across the state to East Coast cities like West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami. I also regularly get to Orlando which is a beautiful drive up through the orange groves in the middle of the state.

I think sharing food is a fundamental way for us to connect, understand, and celebrate each other. It’s something we all look forward to: a cocktail or dinner at the end of the day, a recipe handed down, a pizza. That’s what makes food celebratory.
With the onset of COVID-19, and people all over the world having to practice social isolation, these values surrounding food have been amplified. We swap recipes, share pictures of dishes we’ve made and the nostalgic memories they bring — to fill the void left by the absence of human interaction. Food it seems is the common thread in our lives, sustenance for many, history, culture, and memory for some but, identity for all.
My photographs seek to highlight these meaningful connections between people and food.

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.
