“There is no ceiling to how adept one can become.”
This mindset has served Serhii nicely, even though his job is partly to, well, take pictures of ceilings. The architectural photographer has captured some of Chicago’s most celebrated buildings during his career, and he enjoys the step-by-step process that goes into creating imagery of built environments. To Serhii, architectural photography is a puzzle, one pieced together after hours of careful observation, meticulous planning, and painstaking composition.
Curious and persistent, Serhii is constantly learning how to improve at his craft, and he sees new challenges as opportunities, not obstacles. Serhii’s dedication to his work is clear; in fact, when he’s not on assignment, the photographer is busy with self-commissioned projects. Never too far from the world of architecture, if Serhii isn’t spending time with family and friends, he’s probably playing his favorite video game, appropriately called Cities: Skylines.

When he is not working, Max draws inspiration from traveling, reading, and the cinema.
I don’t enjoy talking or writing about myself; I like my photographs to do that for me. Yet I know it is helpful for those reviewing my body of work to know a little about me and how I approach my profession. The photo I’ve elected to include of me is from my first visit to Poland at the age of 10.My Ciocia Nusia bought me my first camera, igniting a curiosity that has matured over time and experience but remains the cornerstone of my approach to my work. Photography has provided me with the opportunity to work with subjects and attend events that I would otherwise have missed, thereby enriching my professional and personal lives. I love the creative side of photography and each year complete independent photographic projects, so I continue to learn and never become complacent. My goal is to help such organizations develop their voice. When working with clients, I firmly believe collaboration is important to ensure the product is of the highest quality, meets the clients’ needs and desires, and is delivered timely.
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.
I grew up on the south side of Chicago + some say I still carry the accent. Apparently when I order a "salad" or say I’m from "Chicago", I sound like a Super Fan. Nonetheless, I’m fond of my accent + I’m pleased to be connected to such an iconic city. Growing up in a working-class family built the fibers of what I am today. I’m still based in Chicago, conveniently located in the River North area.
When not traveling, I’m at home with my husband, daughter + our two dogs. I love all of them, equally. I find great comfort in cooking at home, but always enjoy a night out in heels. I love cleaning, it’s my therapy. I donate my free time to the local animal shelter down the block with photography services + foster dogs in need. As hard as it is not to get attached, it brings me great joy to have assisted in a second chance. I have a shoe addiction + love a good sale. I can’t walk past a dog on the street without saying hello, which I have passed that love of dogs along to my daughter. Since my husband introduced me to Korean food, I love it and there’s no turning back. We got married in Italy, but neither of us is Italian.
Captivated by shadows and slices of light. Drawn to vibrant colors and moments of calm. Curious for context, connection, and humanity. A seeker of balance and the organic beauty that is found in imperfection. Always aiming to create images that provide a unique experience and engage your senses. Believer in quality over quantity.
Combining my own attributes and technical skills, I help brands tell their distinct narrative, establish their visual identity, and create memorable content for all usage and platforms.
My clients span commercial, editorial, restaurant, boutique hospitality, travel, luxury residential, publishing, B2B, B2C, D2C, and startup brands.
A storyteller at heart, I sometimes also contribute the written word to editorial stories that I shoot. I earned my degree in Journalism from Boston University, and Editorial and Advertising Honors from The New England School Of Photography. I feel fortunate to have created a way to combine all the things I love into an exciting and fulfilling career.
Different projects call for different levels of production – I have an extended network of producers, video crews, food stylists, prop stylists, studios, creative directors, and graphic designers that help to make every shoot a perfect success.
While currently growing roots in Chicago, I also have a strong client base in New York City where I spent the first ten years of my career and established myself in the creative community.
My true north: I am a photographer, storyteller, and traveler. Growing up with a mom who always had one eye behind her Canon AE1, my appreciation for capturing images is well-rooted in my genes. Specializing in connecting with subjects on a personal level, I strive to capture sincere expressions and moments. New projects and environments energize me, and I am always eager to travel to catch the story.
A few ideas for photo assignments or projects I am especially interested in:
Women in farming, organic agriculture in general, projects about the American Midwest, art activism, women fighting for social justice using art, stories regarding orthorexia, ESL teachers abroad (specifically Japan, where my experience was), rural Japan, death and dying, hospice care, aging in rural areas . . .
Hi! I’m CJ, a commercial and editorial photographer and retoucher located in Milwaukee, WI, but serving clients all over the country. I’ve been creating visuals all of my life, and shooting photos professionally since 2006. I’ve shot with big clients like the NFL, VISA, Comcast, HBO, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, and Universal Records, along with some incredible lesser known brands as well.
I absolutely love working with clients that are willing to push their visuals to the next level and are open to experimenting together to create something that neither of us has ever seen before. I like to experiment with all kinds of light, colors, and creative processes to constantly push my photography. I’ve learned a lot over the years by building assets to match current campaigns for countless clients. This has taught me how to be a bit of a chameleon in my process and also helped me to hone in on my own definitive style. I love moody lighting that isn’t overdone – every highlight and shadow is very intentional and I tend to pay attention to all the details that most don’t. I’m a bit of a perfectionist.
I’m a commercial and editorial photographer focusing on portrait, lifestyle, corporate, and documentary work. I returned to my Midwest roots (Milwaukee) after ten years working as a photographer in Santa Fe, New Mexico and New York City. I work locally in Chicago and much of the Midwest, and am available for travel.
Constantly framing shots in my mind, I observe the beauty of light.
I collect moments that are part of a larger whole.
Exploration and curiosity drive my work as an artist and photographer.
I specialize in editorial portrait and commercial photography and many other forms including lifestyle, corporate, food, and travel.
I have a BFA in painting, and over twenty years of experience as a photographer.
Whether I’m one-on-one with a farmer in the orchard or working with a team in the studio, my goal is to bring a unique vision to the project.
Inspirations: mountain views, southwest desert air, finding magic in the ordinary, and getting my hands dirty in a garden.
Interests include: cheese (all dairy products in general), plant hoarding, postcard collecting, reading Bon Appétit Magazine, and and giving belly rubs to my blue heeler rescue dog, Hattie.

I am a photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin and am available for assignments and collaborations nationwide.
I’m drawn to exploring and understanding cultures and communities both within my own country and abroad. Trust, intimacy, and time are cornerstones of my work, and I believe in using photography as a tool for education, awareness, and understanding. The first time I remember thinking to myself, “I want to take this woman’s picture,” it was because, at 13, I wanted to be able to say more than my words were able to explain. There’s something that happens within the taking and sharing of a photograph that still drives my passion today and still leaves me infinitely curious about the world and the people around me.
I have restless feet. I’ve traveled through eleven countries, including Guatemala, Honduras, Sweden, China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia, and I hope to see many more.
Editorial Clients include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Bloomberg, Vice, ProPublica, The Washington Post, Mother Jones, Orion Magazine, NPR, Buzzfeed, AARP, NBC, US News & World Report, The Guardian-US, and more.

Real people, real life, real moments. Let’s make some together.
Offset I spend as much time as possible with my wife and daughter. I am also an avid biker, runner, and all-around adventure seeker.

My obsession with photography dates back to elementary school when I discovered
that the camera could carry some weight on the playground. Our house had a
darkroom which was not ventilated. The fumes, together with the Stones, Dylan
and Abba were intoxicating. It’s no wonder I spent most of my childhood there.
After 40+ years of shooting, my relationship with photography is healthier than ever.
I work to balance commercial assignments, personal work and pro bono work. I have
begrudgingly lived through the transition from film to digital. If I ran for president, my
platform would be the world needs fewer, better photographs and I would heavily fund
the ‘slow photography’ movement. Putting my time where my mouth is, I have adopted
a forgotten photographic process, the photogravure, and am deeply diving into its preservation.
Hilary is very supportive of my photogravure obsession. So much so that even when
she can’t sleep, she asks about it…

At Dean Lavenson Photography, Dean brings an utter passion to the set. He is a master with light and an absolute perfectionist. He is as giddy about photography today as when he was a student. And with that passion comes with over 25 years of experience. After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography and freelancing in L.A. for a few years, Dean relocated his family from Santa Barbara, California to Louisville in 1989. He’s still trying to figure out how that happened. All he remembers is a big yellow Ryder truck with a matching yellow ’73 VW Bug in tow and his wife, Dianne, crying across every state line. Dean still dreams about the beach, but over the years he’s grown to love Louisville. As for how Dean first got started with a camera? Now that’s a long story. Let’s just say, he was on his way to becoming the next Wynton Marsellis. Lucky for Mr. Marsellis, Dean ended up in Beginning Photography as a high school senior. Ask him in person and he’ll give you the looooong version.

I’m a commercial / advertising and editorial photographer specializing in food, farm & agriculture imagery. Or more simply, I capture images of people, what they eat and how it gets from the pasture to the plate.
Clients and collaborators find me to be creative, flexible, efficient and results oriented. I am down-to-earth; passionate and far from perfect. I don’t take myself too seriously and I firmly believe being on set should be fun. I value my crew as much as my clients. It’s these things combined that allow for the creation of authentic, artistic and head-turning imagery.
True story: My mom was always supportive of my career. She was so excited to see my work in her newspaper. She carried a copy in her purse as a prized possession, sharing it with everyone she met (whether interested or not). Her pride and passion continue to inspire me today.
I currently make St. Louis my home, where I live with my husband, Joe, and our cat, Claire. When not out and about with my camera, I spend much of my time working on my cooking skills and trying to make my own garden grow.
I am available for advertising agency, brand, corporate or editorial shoots worldwide.
Starting out with my mom’s Polaroid taking pictures of skateboarders and BMX riders as a kid, to becoming a musician as a teen, the arts have always been a big part of my life. While being a musician I found myself working with other artists doing design and taking photos. I decided to take the next step to pursue photography full time and haven’t looked back since.
Having grown up as a shy, quiet kid, I was stunned to discover that my personal style is so loud! I am particularly drawn to bold colors, lines, geometry, and patterns. Heavily inclined toward a modern aesthetic, I tell visual stories with clean compositions and an authenticity that helps bring your brand to life and connect more deeply with your followers. My work is a great fit for passion-driven businesses and those who aim to make their customers’ lives brighter, happier, and more energetic and fun.
You can almost always find me in a comfy chair sipping on a good latte from a local cafe—or homemade, if I’m working in. You’ll know me by my bright pink hair and well-worn jeans.

Claudia is a photographer, living and operating currently in the heart of the American Midwest.
