Since my early years working as a photojournalist, I’ve believed in the storytelling power of photography. My images connect as well as communicate. I’m all about fostering an authentic connection: between me and my subject, and between the viewer and the image.
Supporting my clients and their brands while telling unique visual stories of diverse bodies, ethnicities, genders and ages, in beautiful settings is the work I’m honored to do. I specialize in creating original and eye-catching fashion lifestyle imagery – the kinds of images that make you pause for a moment and appreciate. With a deep knowledge and connection to the wool industry, knitting and the fiber arts, I photograph people and products all the way from sheep farms to dye studios to fashion models in knits.
My predominately portrait based, work incorporates my fascination with people, their behaviour and identities, with my own intuitive response and observational creativity.
In 2019 I completed my MA in Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales.
When not shooting I enjoy hiking, cycling, yoga, cinema & trying to tame the weeds at my allotment!

I’m a lifestyle and portrait photographer from Italy, currently residing in Los Angeles. As a young boy I had a colorful vintage 1960s map of the United States above my bed. Each main region was represented with a little sketch or figure, very detailed, and I had dreams that one day I was going to be there and discover all those places myself. My passion for visual arts encouraged me to study graphic design and work as web designer in Italy. The opportunity became reality in 2002 when I moved from Italy and my journey started in San Francisco. In few years I ended up in various circumstances in the city of Angeles. The multicultural environment, the vibrant lifestyle and the excitement for embracing this new adventure of life has been my motivation for taking photographs. A passion I cultivated since I was a young teenager and has transformed my life and career. After lot of training and experience, I consider myself very fortunate.
EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO TELL. And being a storyteller at heart, Eric has an eye for crafting visual narratives with authenticity, emotion, and a sense of place.
Along side his distinctive food, beverage, and lifestyle work, Eric is adept at capturing the essentials of a well-rounded travel or brand story such as portraiture, interiors, and landscape photography. And with an affinity for working on location, he's as comfortable photographing cowboys at dawn on a Texas ranch or donning a wetsuit to capture commercial fishery action, as he is shooting beautifully plated food in an upscale restaurant. Additionally, his 20+ year background in branding, graphic design and web development help him visualize the end result of a photoshoot, as well as develop the story flow and shot list.
Eric is based in the Texas Hill Country, near Austin and San Antonio and is available for travel across the state and beyond.

Photographer + Traveler + Pie Baker
Mark was raised in Pennsylvania and Utah. His love of photography began at the age of ten when he saved up enough money to buy a 35mm Pentax. He took it everywhere. However, it wasn’t until part way through his college education at Brigham Young University that he discovered that he could turn his passion into a career. He dropped the chemistry half of his double major to focus on finishing his degree in photography. He loves to travel and has taken his camera to thirty-one countries.
Mark, his wife Liz, and their two boys live in New York City where they have baked over 300 pies in their tiny kitchen.
As a Kansas City-based commercial and editorial photographer, Steve Puppe’s freelance assignments range from food and environmental portraiture, to healthcare, agriculture and corporate photography.
Living with his wife, two daughters and son outside the city, and with a studio in the Strawberry Hill area, Steve has stayed connected to the city where he’s spent much of his life.
Steve’s interest in photography, like his connection to his hometown, has deep roots. With a painter for a mother, he was exposed to art at a young age, taking every art class available to him. He flirted with the paintbrush and the pencil, but it wasn’t until he received a camera that he fell in love. From his first high school photo class, Steve knew what he wanted to do with his life. While still a high school student, he had the good fortune of working with Hallmark Cards, which paired him with commercial photographers, and paid for his film and photo trips.
Steve continued his photo studies at Kansas University, where he studied advertising and photojournalism. He also freelanced for Hallmark and commercial photographers on the side. Through Hallmark, Steve furthered his creative development, learning how to capture a diverse range of subjects from people to still life. He took that experience with him into a career in photojournalism, covering a variety of stories for notable papers. Eventually, Steve headed back to the studio, working as an in-house photographer at an ad agency. It was there that his degree in advertising gave came into play, giving him the insight to take on a wide array of clients and campaigns. Working as a graphic designer and photographer allowed Steve to take projects from conception all the way to the press check.
Fast forward and nowadays, Steve combines that commercial experience with photojournalistic story telling shooting for notable clients like Cerner, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Humana, Sprint, Nike, Google, AT&T, Chrysler and IBM. When he’s not out on assignment, he’s cooking up some Kansas City BBQ, or taking pictures of his family because when Steve’s taking a picture, he’s happy.

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.
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 and capturing the right image.
Gabriella lives just a touch north of Santa Fe out in the wilds of Pojoaque with one very short and rather long chiweenie, and an opinionated flock of little feathered dinosaurs, commonly known as garden variety backyard chickens.
Gabriella is currently serving as the President of the New Mexico chapter of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers).
