I’m Grant (he/him)!
I’m a photographer based in Western Washington State, USA. I work as both an editorial and commercial photographer, the latter often in a storytelling and natural style.
I do my best to make photographs that are timeless, relatable and to the point, but with an art-driven aesthetic. Personally, I’m interested in exploring human geography and our awareness of the spaces that make us who we are.
In my free time I like to tinker on bicycles and trucks, nap with my dogs, and hunt for the best hole-in-the-wall sandwich or taco shop.
I love people. And I love making photos. And I could not imagine doing anything else as a livelihood.
I worked as a photojournalist at The Seattle Times for some years where I learned documentary photography.
I am interested in many things; nature, food, sports, craftmanship and technology among them.
I live in Seattle with my wife. And am guardian to a 120-foot tall Redwood tree in my backyard.
I enjoy bbq’s, red wine, relaxing with family and friends, and roadtrips.
I am a photographer who specializes in shooting the built environment. For over ten years I have been shooting interiors and exteriors for architects, interior designers, and the hospitality industry. Dawn till Dusk.

As a photographer, I am always looking for interactions and this can take many forms. Whether it is two individuals connecting with one another, groups of people interacting, or the natural ebb and flow in nature, I want to document these moments.
When working with clients, I strive to ensure that their vision is realized, and their stories are told in a genuine and honest manner. I balance my work between commercial clients, non-profit organizations, and trying to give back to the community.

Based in Vancouver, B.C., I am a professional photographer who, since 2005, has specialized in capturing the true essence and emotion of the people I shoot in my portraits. My portrait and editorial work has been featured in publications like Canadian House and Home, People Magazine, the Vancouver Sun, TV week, the Westender to name a few. Known for my contemporary editorial style, easy-going personality and professional discretion, I’ve made a name for myself by photographing local celebrities, musicians and Vancouver’s movers and shakers.

Hi, I’m Kamil. I’m a photographer living and working in Vancouver, BC. I’m available for editorial, advertising, and personal commissions worldwide. I hold Canadian and EU passports. My photographic practice is centered around many things that don’t quite make perfect sense in my brain, such as the how and why of colour densities, how does the process itself influence the final photograph, and how to intersect graphic art with the visceral documentary experience. So when I’m working, I’m usually thinking about all these things at once. I’m currently particularly interested in projects that hold cultural or environmental significance, be they in advertising, editorial, or personal art. But I’m not saving any lives, so all that to say, I love my work, and I have a lot of fun with it.
I’m interested in the human experience. In our rush to the end in search of perfection, we often overlook the things right in front of us. The everyday and banal can be more beautiful than the glamorous, and the imperfect often holds more meaning than flawless. Start with why dare to be authentic, and never settle for anything less than excellence.

Hello, I’m Rachel and I live in Vancouver, BC on the west coast of Canada. I am inspired by the complexity of humans and curious about the stories beneath the surface of an image. Recently, I’m more and more interested in how we as humans inhabit our bodies, how we may try to hide or take up space — the ways our relationship between body and concept of ourselves is complex. My portrait and editorial work takes me into the worlds of music, art and design, social justice, education, and fashion. I’m always listening, observing and want to craft images that invite a viewer to pause and see a side to a story.
With a BA in Communications and a side of English and art, I’m always seeking ways to tell a story through images, finding (or making) the right light and genuine moments between people. So far, I’ve visited seven of Canada’s 10 provinces and territories and travelled in Europe, Asia, the USA and Australia. I live in part of a 100 year old house with my musician husband, 5 year old son and 2 yr old daughter.

Hey there. As you may have guessed, my name Lincoln Barbour and I am neither a president or someone who cuts hair. What I am is a professional photographer based out of Portland, OR specializing in well-crafted photography for home décor and architectural product brands.
What does “well-crafted” mean? Simply put, I create eye-candy for your brand that fits your specific needs, delivers on your creative vision, and arrives on budget and on time.
I specialize in a strong use of technical composition with an organic approach to light and color. My photography is clean but warm, controlled but casual, structured but nuanced. I take reality, blend in aspirational desire, and capture it all in a single moment. My shooting style is meticulously planned, yet comes across as effortless.
I don’t do this alone either. My scalable production team can meet your needs to deliver the best work possible for any budget. From 14-day catalog shoots with talent, stylists, catering, location scouting, and high end retouching to one simple day of architectural documentation, I will customize my services to help you achieve your desired results.
How do I do this? After 16 years of experience working with top brands, it’s safe to say I know exactly how to deliver a photo shoot.
Authentic, emotive, and unusual, my images tell stories even when they stand alone.
After a couple decades running my own shop and honing my craft as a commercial and editorial photographer, I’m still enamored with the language and allure of the medium. I’m known for my ability to put people at ease — even or especially when they don’t love having their picture taken.
A successful shoot is about more than great images; it’s about great customer service. It should be a fun, thorough, and satisfying experience for the client. I enjoy the thrill of overseeing production with a crew of thirty, but also never tire of the intimacy of a small shoot. Assignments have taken me across the country from Memphis to Raleigh to Virginia Beach to Los Angeles. I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of professional talent and real people – from the executive team of a global biotech firm, to presidential primary candidates, to unhoused teens aging out of foster care.
In 2019, I relocated from St. Louis to the Pacific Northwest, and now live in weird and magical Portland with my brilliant wife Jackie and our two boys, Jupiter and George.

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and raised by a widowed mother (Dad died when I was 8), with two other sisters, in a small town in a region called Ribeira Valley. I left home at the age of 15 searching for a better life. At the age of 22, I decided to move to the USA to further my education and improve myself as a human being.
I have won several awards as a photographer. My work has been exhibited at a few museums, it has been published in a handful of magazines, and used by quite a few brands ads. However, I don’t think that defines who I am.
I have won several awards as a photographer and my work has been published in a handful of magazines, however, I don’t think that defines who I am. What defines me is the fact that I am a hopeless believer in kindness, no matter how warped today’s world appears. I am also a failed-by-never-trying comedian, and dream of having a French Bulldog—they automatically trigger my “talking-to-a-baby” voice whenever I see one.
I also love watching movies while dissecting the light set up and color grading used in those movies.
Footb… alright, Americans… Soccer is a passion!
