Angela went on a field trip in third grade and took pictures with her favorite pink Le Clic camera. When she showed the class her photographs from the trip her teacher told her she should be a photographer. Like any good student Angela didn’t listen until 15 years later. Thank you Ms. Ushrey for being "the wind beneath my wings."
I have a pretty simple life. I like traveling, coffee, and laughing. . . ideally, all at once. I live on a small farm in Ireland, where my partner Olivia and I have an animal sanctuary. I was first handed an old Kodak Brownie camera at age 10. I went on to college where I studied photography and graduated at the top of my class. After a handful of photo jobs, I stumbled into producing. With its fast-paced creativity and non-stop action in captivating images, the advertising world swept me right off my feet. In my years in this industry, I’ve worked as a photographer, director and producer for clients like Sony, Cadillac, Honda, Bushmills, HP and IBM. I’ve organized and executed photo and video shoots for everything from food and yoga to homes, cars, and aerospace. If you can think of it, I’ve put a shoot together for it. After all this time, I’ve realised why I truly love what I do; I love people’s stories, and the chance to help tell those stories. And I especially love telling those stories using visual media, which brings depth and dimension to a narrative like nothing else.

Alicia Stepp is an internationally published, award-winning fashion, beauty and portrait photographer.
At an early age, Alicia adopted fashion as a form of self-expression, and when she was gifted a Polaroid camera in the early ‘80’s, she discovered her ability to capture life’s moments and tell personal stories through photography. Her work today reflects that same sense of visual fascination and play combined with a sophisticated sensibility that allows her work to straddle the commercial and editorial line. Her images are elevated but fun, with adventurous moments and emotional stories living side-by-side with clean, structured silhouettes that reveal her instinctive understanding of color, light, and form.
Ten years as a graphic designer helped her develop and hone the aesthetic sensibility that inspired her to launch a career in photography in 2007. Her engaging images are a testament to her natural ability to establish a genuine connection with her subjects. After earning a BFA in Photography from The Art Institute, Alicia worked in production assistance and marketing research and has over a decade of experience in the industry–from art direction and production to scouting, lighting, and casting.
I’m an Englishman in New York, sound familiar?
I became a photographer back in 2002 and was a digital evangelist for Hasselblad and traveled the world promoting professional digital photography before we had iPhones. I’ve been on TV for shows like Sweden’s Next Top Model and have photographed unbelievably cool people – both well-known and not so well-known. I live vicariously through performers.
I’ve worked across the world for lots of publications and have had what you’d call a “varied” career. From bouncing around in helicopters with the French Foreign Legion in Africa, to photographing 300 naked people for charity, I haven’t exactly seen it all, but I’ve seen a lot.
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. My online portfolio includes personal and publicity portraits of Tamara Taggart, artist Gathie Falk and Bobbie Burgers, rocker Jonny Hetherington, Brian and Andrea Hill, Real Housewife Ronnie Negus and American Idol alum Kimberley Caldwell.

I have always had a vivid imagination and restless spirit. Growing up, I resisted routine. I dreamt in moving and still images. I imagined the light that burns inside people shining outward, giving colour to space and objects, spreading like long fingers over my community to move life like a musician makes music. The things I imagined told the story of my life and all its contradictions; more than anything, I wanted to capture that life. Soon, I discovered photography and the means of capturing it was in my hands. The beauty in the everyday existence of ordinary people that I once imagined became the subject of my art, through which I capture images focusing on the human face and its unique ability to convey a person’s spirit. There is nothing else like it. My photographs are thus inspired by the ineffable and under-appreciated quality of the human face as unlike anything else in existence. It is, on one level, as profane as any body part, made of flesh and common enough among people; and yet our faces are unmatched in their abilities to reveal, if even fleetingly, something divine. Through portraiture – indeed, the photographic study of the face – my work emphasizes that which reveals us and conceals us, defines and perplexes us, moves and stupefies us, eludes and demands knowing. My portraits depict the intersectionality of the human face as a liminal subject joining the sacred and profane.
