More than a photographer, Julia is also an artist and a humanitarian. Her ability to dive below the surface level of her subjects’ personalities arises from her lifelong passion to give back to her community through healing arts. Camera in hand, Julia has contributed her talents to dozens of charitable initiatives, including “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep” bereavement photography organization, ongoing projects with Comcast’s Accessibility Lab for the hearing- and visually- impaired, and many others. Julia has also served historically-neglected populations, including the special needs and abused animals. Most recently she has been bringing awareness to the plastic pollution problem in our oceans and is collaborating with a range of artists to inspire and create underwater photographs to donate 100% proceeds to Charity Water.

My passion for photography started when I was 12 years old. My father handed me his Nikon camera and told me to go down to the Texas Stadium sideline and take photos of my brother who was playing football. When we got the film back a few days later we were both pleasantly surprised. I can still remember the exhilaration of that moment. I get that same feeling today when I see the image flash in my viewfinder and later again on my computer. Especially now that I’m doing what I love for people who really need that special image for their company.

What did you want to be when you grew up? I almost became a Nuclear Engineer. Thankfully, after about a year of college physics and math, my creative brain cells wrestled control over the nerdy geek in me and pointed me to Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara. I still have a bit of that nerdy geek in me, but in a creative photographic way. The San Francisco Bay Area is where I landed after graduation and where I launched Vantage Point Photography. I love what I do. I love the process. I love creating images that cause people to pause, to look, to think and sometimes to smile. My other loves? My kids, our dog, a good hiking trail, and my SX 70 loaded with Polaroid film.
Hello. My name is Bobby.
I’m a photographer, filmmaker and writer with a focus on Africa’s wildlife, wild-lands, and people.
I’ve worked with major brands, fantastic NGOs, and publications from the Philippines to the Middle East, to Mexico and beyond. I’m based in Nairobi, Kenya and am available for assignments worldwide.
I believe story, at its core, is able to build bridges across global gaps of distance, culture and socio-economic status. By being connected to the stories of others, we are reminded that we all have a story, that we all share in the common threads of humanity no matter where we come from.
I was born into a big, footloose family in Long Beach California. I worked for more than a decade as a newspaper photographer—a job that let me chase another passion, concert photography.
In 1989 I joined the staff of Southern Living Magazine as a senior photographer for Travel. That was so much fun I stayed for almost 25 years, shooting hundreds of features, and logging more than four million frequent flyer miles. Now freelance, I still love creating story-telling images. My years of photographing music, food, and culture have made me adept at putting people at ease and working in a relaxed, energetic style.
I am represented by Wonderful Machine, while my classic concert work is represented by Rock Paper Photo, the definitive place for pop culture fine art photography. https://www.rockpaperphoto.com/browse-by-photographer/art-meripol More of my concert work can be view at oldschoolconcerts.photoshelter.com

Currently based in Sweden and raised on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, I’ve always had a strong desire to see the world. Having the opportunity to accompany my family on various trips, I was able to appreciate the ways in which people live. These experiences inspired and developed my fascination to seek out diverse cultures.
After a year of traveling in Australia 2016, I loaded up my camera gear and set out on a trip around the world. This trip originally inspired me to pursue photography and cinematography as a career. Four years and 40 countries later, I look back and am grateful for my experiences.
Documenting my travel allows me to capture moments that I can relive at another time. Through the medium of culture, nature, and adventure, my goal is to tell stories that inspire others. While working with brands I carry on these same values. My mission is to tell their story in a way that captivates their audience and creates action.

Bruce T. Martin is an American Fine Art photographer who uses photography to document the world, explore perceptions, and question our viewpoints. After graduating from Syracuse University in 1977, he began working as a Historical Preservation photographer, using photography to help put endangered buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. His photographs are in a number of private and public collections and have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and Central America. Today, along with exhibiting his fine art photography projects, he is a leading architectural photographer, making photographs for the nation’s foremost architects, designers, and publications.
For assignments, he uses High Resolution Digital Camera systems for the maximum image fidelity possible, complete perspective control movements and the highest quality lenses available. These systems rival 4×5 film in quality while more cost efficient and allowing for greater modification in post-production.
“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.
This is usually the area where photographers pretentiously posture as if they just cured cancer. They talk about how they connect spiritually with their subjects or how they’ve been influenced by Pee Wee Herman. Whatever. I find it quite annoying. In that spirit, I’ll keep my pitch short and sweet.
Here’s what you need to know about me. I have more than 30 years experience in newspaper, magazine and commercial photography. I was a director of photography for a midwest ad agency as well as for the Topeka Capital-Journal.I shared in a Pulitzer Prize at the Kansas City Star for its coverage of the Hyatt Skywalk Collapse in 1981. A small piece of it, but a Pulitzer nonetheless.
I like to have fun. I ride a road bike a lot, and my family is my number one priority. I won’t tolerate intolerance. I don’t like it when people talk on their cell phones while driving. It’s dangerous. I play the uilleann pipes. I went to law school with my daughter. But the most important things you need to know about me are: I am easy to work with, I don’t take myself too seriously, and I produce great work on a budget and on deadline.
And now, I’m a FAA Part 107 Certified Drone pilot offering photography from an aerial perspective, too.
