Quentin offers high-quality architectural and interiors photography for architecture firms, designers, commercial construction companies, hospitality brands, and home décor brands.
Quentin has helped many clients capture the essence of their work in images. These clients have gone on to get published, win awards, and grow their sales by trusting Quentin to photograph their projects.
When Quentin is not staring through a camera lens, he’s with his family sampling all the delicious food and craft beer in Virginia he can.
When I’m not staring through glass I’m usually at one of my favorite Richmond restaurants or breweries, drinking iced coffee (lots of it), or hanging out with my wife Bonnie, our son Henry, and our rescue pit bull, SpottieOttieDopaLicious.
Bobby is a photographer and director based in Richmond, Virginia. He is available for portrait commissions, music video, and commercial direction, photo documentary assignments, and album artwork. His imagery has been seen internationally in publications such as the New York Times and Maxim magazine, and in advertisements and video displays for clients like RCA Records and Converse. During the summer months, bobby can be found river tubing with a bucket hat on his head and a frosty PBR in his hand. Outside of creating images, this is his favorite activity.
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.

Based in Kensington, Maryland
One of the best parts of being a photographer is all the great people I get to meet along the way. Whether I am photographing sports and fitness, lifestyle, or corporate, its always about making a connection.
I love collaborating and working together to bring an idea to life. I believe in planning every detail but also know how to deal with the unexpected when it arises. I’m based out of the DC area but always up for traveling to where the shot is needed.
Matthew Rakola (né Hakola) is a proud Maine native who learned how to photograph people by bartending. Both professions require the ability to read people quickly, anticipate their needs, and most importantly–listen. To be fair, he also learned a thing or two as a commercial photography major at Syracuse University, where he spent hundreds of hours up to his elbows in smelly photo chemistry.
I guess It’s fair that he got most of his professional training while washing dishes.
Today he uses all of these skills and more as a commercial, advertising and editorial photographer based in Washington, DC. He specializes in photographing real people doing real things and still loves to listen and learn on the job.
When he’s not writing about himself in the third person or making images, he’s probably with wife, chasing their two sons around. He’s actively lobbying his family for a pet skunk, who he is going to name Kodak. In the meantime he dotes on his two goldfish, Becky and Swimmy.
Based in Silver Spring, Maryland

Laura Chase has a B.A. in Studio Art from UNC Chapel Hill. After living and working in places like Charlotte, Chattanooga, Baltimore, and Belgium, she’s happy to call Silver Spring, Maryland home and enjoys spending family time with her husband and adorable children Henry and Frances!

Impactful images are made in the moment, or meticulously planned to look like they were. From the split seconds that define outcomes, to the fleeting expressions that can tell a whole story, I am committed to capturing and creating photographs that make a statement.
As a former collegiate athlete much of my work is naturally inspired by competition, however my biggest inspiration in life is my family. When I’m not making pictures or spending time with my wife and our two crazy little boys, I’m probably exploring my other passion in life, music.
I specialize in creating conceptually and visually rich images. Working on still life, food and product photography in my studio is where I feel most at home, although paddling a kayak is a very close second. Utilizing my knowledge of technical lighting and my eye for detail, I am able to make objects appear better on screen and in print than they would to the naked eye. My work can be found in many national advertising campaigns, as well as editorial magazines, and of course, plenty of e-commerce websites. With 10 years of photographic experience and a BFA from RIT, I am ready to help you bring your shoot to life.
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.
Geoff Wood is not satisfied.
Don’t misinterpret that; he’s happy. He loves life with his talented and beautiful wife Regan, being a father to an amazingly creative little girl named Gibson and adventurous riot named Crosby, and shooting photography. He’s just not satisfied.
There’s too much adventure out there. Too many incredible people to work with. Too many ideas, too many projects, too much beauty to experience.
Geoff’s plan to get satisfied is to dive headfirst into life behind the lens. He’s hanging off the side of the boat, pouring metal filings into old cameras to see what happens, and whenever possible taking the whole thing underwater. He’s getting to know each person, giving his all for each job, and using ten years of design experience to compose the shot you’re looking for.
At the end of his life he hopes to look around with satisfaction at a close family and deep friendships, with the scars and shots that show the adventure.
Geoff has collaborated with such clients as Garden and Gun, Our State, Wrangler, Qalo, Baldwin&, Pace Comm, Duke Energy, Electricities, Ketchum, French West Vaughan, MicroMass Comm and ESPN to name a few. As well as picked up Gold, Silver and Best in Show Addy awards.
Bryan Regan is a Raleigh, NC based commercial and editorial photographer, a photography school dropout who learned his craft assisting photographers across the country back in the days of film. Whether in his downtown studio or on location photographing people, products or places,Regan’s passion for storytelling comes through in his images.

With the breadth and depth of knowledge acquired photographing in 43 different countries over 20+ years, and the humility of growing up in a working-class family in hot and dusty Central California, my curiosity and down-to-earth nature allow me to connect with everyone-from rural farmer to corporate CEO.
Balancing enthusiasm and commitment, my team and I create insightful imagery with curiosity, open-mindedness, and hard work; adding value to the lives of those whose stories we are privileged to tell, those our work is seen by, and most importantly our clients’ vision.

In nearly two decades in the commercial photography industry, Natalia proves a skillful dedication to the entire photography production process. During college, she kept her nose in the books for her commercial photography degree while working for internationally known photographers from coast-to-coast including Pete Barrett and Jim Erickson. Returning to NC, she worked as an independent retoucher and producer and began work with Jimmy Williams as Studio Manager.
As a freelance photographer since 2007, Natalia travels with the lens of a storyteller. In addition to corporate and agency commissions, her immersive photographs have captured the landscapes of Southeast Asia, her own extended family dinner table in Chile, and delicate portraiture of coconut farmers in Panama. When she isn’t packing a suitcase or behind the viewfinder or monitor, Natalia can be found at home in Durham, NC stopping in on classes at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies, volunteering for environmental and social causes, or joining friends on spontaneous bicycle tours. As a former professional salsa dancer, she occasionally dusts off her heels and hits the pista de baile.
For me, photography has always been about exploration. It’s about solving problems, whether it be creative or technical. It’s about learning new ways of seeing and being able to share that vision with the world.
My process is based on authenticity and creating comfortable environments where real interactions can happen. It’s about enjoyment, about seeing people enjoy what I make, and about learning which lens each project or client require me to look through.
I am a creative thinker with a blue collar work ethic. I work hard and expect those around me to do the same, but I make sure we’re all having fun. I am patient, flexible and understanding and I know how to tell stories that relate to real people.
Located in Pennsylvania. Working in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York, DC, Baltimore.
Available for assignment worldwide. I like to travel.

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.
