I am a commercial and editorial photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. The youngest of four kids in a military family, there were five stamps in my passport by the time I was five years old. My father retired from the air force just before I entered kindergarten and we moved to North Florida where life became more predictable. A few years later, I began to take pictures (mostly of my pets and friends) with my mom’s point-and-shoot to entertain myself and also because I loved going to K-Mart where I could sit at the counter and talk to people while waiting for my prints to shuffle out of the machine. my work is a combination of storytelling and portraiture, often with a focus on social issues. My roots are in the American south and I am as passionate about doing work here as any other place in the world. I am a Spanish-speaker (also fluent in non-verbal communication) and have worked extensively in central and south America, Europe, and Asia.
Businesses should compete based on great stories. Pure and simple. It’s my job to draw out and photograph your stories in a way that causes customers to click with your brand. Nashville-based photographer and visual storyteller with a great love of people. My work is focused on telling better stories for your website, social media, blog, print collateral, and in-house displays. With a BA in Photography from Thomas Edison State College; a thesis written on How Photography Causes Social Change; a year teaching photography at the college level; and an MA in theology your images will come from a deep understanding of the power of images and the human heart. Born and raised in the South with a deep appreciation for roots, narrative & quality. I grew up watching light slant through Georgia pine trees and it changed the way I see.
Lover of hospitality, rocking chairs, deep conversations
and the word "ya’ll."
I’m not a struggling musician [anymore]. But I did start my career photographing musicians and other creative and talented people. And since Creative and Talented People = Interesting Story, that makes my work easy—most of the time. Today my editorial and advertising clients still want the interesting story. I just tell it through my lens in a contemporary natural way. Real life moments, just … better. That’s what I do.
Scott Van Osdol shoots what he loves—documentary style, commercially. He keeps it simple, clear, and compelling.
He shoots real people wherever possible. This storytelling impulse goes way back. His first solo exhibit, “Working”, opened at the Texas AFL-CIO Union Hall in 1980. Scott comes by this authenticity thing honestly.
He honed his craft old school, with big studio special effects on large-format film. He likes digital better. They’re only zeros and ones. Shoot all you want—God will make more.
His work has won more prizes than a case o’ Cracker Jacks: Lürzer’s 200 Best Ad Photographers 2020, Communication Arts Photo Annual, Graphis, PRINT, HOW, International Photography Awards, PR Week Campaign of the Year, and dozens of local and regional ADDYs. He shoots pro-bono for projects like Art From the Streets, Con Mi Madre, and the Big Bend Rodeo. For ten years he led the Hill Country Ride for AIDS marketing team, working with Austin’s best creatives to raise more than $10 million with campaigns that appeared multiple times in CA, PRINT, and HOW International Design Annual. He rides his bike silly long distances in the Texas heat.
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.
I live in Washington, DC, with my reporter wife; son, Cillian; and daughter, Orla. You might catch a glimpse of them here.
Back in the day, I studied photojournalism at the University of Missouri and worked for some newspapers. Now, I mostly work
for magazine, corporate, advertising and non-profit clients.
And when I’m not working at making images, I’m probably working over the stove, grill and/or tending bar for friends.

Brauer specializes in photographing science, education, politics, and the economy, among other subjects. He works frequently for Bloomberg Businessweek, the Chronicle of Higher Education, MIT, Harvard, Time, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other publications and institutions.
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.
While based in Detroit, Michigan, I provide still and motion work for editorial and advertising clients all over focusing on portraits, food, industrial and accompanying lifestyle imagery. Also, a 2019 Regional Emmy Award recipient for the short documentary "A Wife Called Phoenicia.”
I’m southern and have the manners, drawl and pocket knife to prove it. I’ve been married for 20 years to my wife Carla, an amazing graphic designer who lets me have a desk around the corner and up the hall, just far enough away to drown out my bad singing and constant desk drumming. We have a 14-year-old daughter named Scout. She is the coolest person I’ve ever met. She’s an up and coming singer/songwriter and plays the upright bass, guitar, and the ukulele. She’s kind of a big deal. We also have a 2-year-old manchild named Charlie. To date, he’s proven to be really good at disturbing the peace and entertaining.
I’ve been a drummer for 30 years or so and an embarrassment to guitarists for almost as long. I don’t leave home without my waders and fly rod. You never know where a creek may present itself in my part of the country. I love being in the woods and on the water. Whether I’m chasing fish, deer, birds or just hiking and camping, it’s the place I most want to spend my time.
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.

Gabriella Marks is a San Franciscan expat music shooter turned chef-and-farmer groupie. She arrived in New Mexico on pure intuition, but knows why she stays: the spectacular high desert light, the lenticular clouds, and the humbling experience of urging a single squash plant from the dry clay soil and ancient pueblo pottery shards in the garden. Her respect for, and relationships with, the farmers and chefs in the region grows daily.
A recognized name in the regional food world, Gabriella has been expanding her horizons to encompass lifestyle and portrait work in the Southwest and beyond.
From a working perspective, she’s driven to discover in every single shot an opportunity to frame moments and light in harmonious and striking detail. Perhaps the most single most powerful thing she has learned is how essential good listening – to the client, to the subject, to the environment – is crucial to creating the right image.
Gabriella lives just a touch north of Santa Fe out in the wilds of Pojoaque with her very short and rather long chiweenie, and an opinionated flock of little feathered dinosaurs, commonly known as garden variety backyard chickens.

I am an Atlanta based photographer focusing on food and lifestyle. With experience in art direction, creating concepts, and seeing them through to completion, I am happiest when I collaborate creatively with a team.
I’ve worked as a professional commercial photographer since 2012. After earning a BFA in photography at Georgia State University, I have spent time with fascinating people and mission-driven companies in the field and in the studio.
I am a documentary and fine art photographer, multimedia producer and writer. Born and educated in France with a degree in philosophy and political sciences, I moved to the United States in 1991 and earned a M.A. in journalism. I have kept my French accent since then.
I did not receive a Brown camera when I was a teen and I did not fall in love with photography when I developed my first film in a dark room. Don’t ask me why. My epiphany came later in life.
My work is multifaceted and reflects my curiosity for the things of life. I love to shoot environmental portraits and to produce multimedia pieces. Working for magazines and newspapers like the New York Times has given me the opportunity to meet people whom I would have never met otherwise. I have also previously served as a photo editor at CNN.com. My personal photography work explores the contemporary landscape in the widest sense, investigating themes which include the sense of place, the new forms of urbanism and the future of our environment.
