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.

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.

I’m a Los Angeles based portrait and lifestyle photographer living and working on both coasts. I love collaborating with people and being thrown into different situations. There is a unique story behind every face and I rely on those unexpected details to make images that are as special as the people. With the help of great crew, we strive to make magic happen for all of my clients. When I’m not making pictures I’m training for marathons or playing ice hockey to stay healthy, sane and inspired.
Home base is currently the Eagle Rock neighborhood of North East LA where I live with my wife, daughter, large cat and Guinea Pig.

Fernando Decillis is an Atlanta-based photographer specializing in advertising and documentary projects. Fernando was born in Montevideo, Uruguay to a teenage seamstress and an airport ramp agent. He spent his childhood roaming his town, Shangri La, asking local fisherman for advice and riding through Uruguay’s flat country roads as one of four passengers on his dad’s moped.
In an effort to escape Uruguay’s military dictatorship, the Decillis family set out for the United States. At ten years old, speaking no English, Fernando attended public school in what is known today as the Dekalb International Corridor of Atlanta, or Buford Highway.
His love of fútbol was his path to making friends with other immigrant children from all over the globe, who were simultaneously assimilating to life in the U.S.
Fernando quickly learned to rely on nonverbal communication to foster a sense of oneness on the field with teammates who all spoke different languages.
Fernando translates this skillset fluidly to photograph people from all walks of life, from world leaders to celebrities to local farmers. His award-winning photography teases a humanistic beauty out of everyday situations.
My obsession with photography dates back to elementary school when I discovered
that the camera could carry some weight on the playground. Our house had a
darkroom which was not ventilated. The fumes, together with the Stones, Dylan
and Abba were intoxicating. It’s no wonder I spent most of my childhood there.
After 40+ years of shooting, my relationship with photography is healthier than ever.
I work to balance commercial assignments, personal work and pro bono work. I have
begrudgingly lived through the transition from film to digital. If I ran for president, my
platform would be the world needs fewer, better photographs and I would heavily fund
the ‘slow photography’ movement. Putting my time where my mouth is, I have adopted
a forgotten photographic process, the photogravure, and am deeply diving into its preservation.
Hilary is very supportive of my photogravure obsession. So much so that even when
she can’t sleep, she asks about it…
A California native living in NYC, Kris has shot for brands like Nike, Apple, and Google, as well as a number of foundations and nonprofits, in over a dozen countries across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
A product of the Stanford d.school, his work is tied together by the common thread of empathy, spanning visual media & storytelling, consumer products, and international development over the past 10 years. He draws frequently from his interdisciplinary background in his commercial and documentary work, and he strives to create the most striking and meaningful imagery possible with those around him.
One of the best parts of being a photographer is all the great people I get to meet along the way. Whether I am photographing sports and fitness, lifestyle, or corporate, its always about making a connection.
I love collaborating and working together to bring an idea to life. I believe in planning every detail but also know how to deal with the unexpected when it arises. I’m based out of the DC area but always up for traveling to where the shot is needed.
When worlds collide!
Missy and Chelsea here! We met a handful of years ago while working alongside each other at a local studio. We aligned seamlessly (pun intended!) and found ourselves having the same dedication and passion for photography and all the nitty gritty that goes along with it. After work cocktails quickly turned into a lasting friendship full of road trips, vacations, adventures, collaborations, and a metric ton of shenanigans!
Queue the lightning bolt striking something and sparks flying moment… Truth be told, we went into work one day, had the same idea, on the same day and then poof! started a production company. The idea was to build up a production company, continue to be commercial photographers, have a studio the community could use, and grow into offering workshops and professional photography development. Houston, we have take off!
The Amy Rose Productions philosophy has always been to bring our personal life values of loyalty, resolve, passion, reaching for the stars, and wonder to every project and client. It’s that character that keeps us motivated, clients excited, and the photographs fresh!
In between soccer practices or neighborhood baseball games Matt loved shooting photos on his parents old pocket film camera. As a kid it never occurred to him that photography could become a career but that little camera lit a spark. While pursuing a graduate degree, Matt traveled exhaustingly throughout Europe and found himself happiest while lost in the camera, observing and creating. Several years into an ensuing corporate career he was laid off after just 6 months into a new job. Even worse, the hammer dropped on his first day back to work after the birth of his daughter. As a new dad he was angry and confused but above all he was MOTIVATED. He immediately pulled the rip cord and gathered the courage to start trusting his gut. Matt busted his butt to self produce shoots, make promos and set up meetings in hopes of carving out a space in the industry. Since 2011 word has spread and photo shoots have grown to become integrated productions including motion content and director work in sports, fitness and outdoors.
Exotic places, live music and unique, thoughtful people are some of the things that inspire me. I consider, I observe, I listen, I read (loved this), I binge (currently this). I have a favorite radio station. I grow some of my own food and share it with friends. And I write.
My background is documentary stills, but creating original work from the depths of my mind has been equally rewarding, and is now taking up increasing amounts of my time and interest. If I really need to zone out, I might be found swimming (formerly here) or building a table, meditating with the steady rhythms of the orbital sander.
I’m a dual citizen of Ireland and the US, but I don’t love borders, and certainly not the walls that delineate them. I was born in Detroit and raised just north, but Austin was equally formative. Home is now on the edge of the great wide-open of west Marin in the San Francisco Bay.
Having grown up as a shy, quiet kid, I was stunned to discover that my personal style is so loud! I am particularly drawn to bold colors, lines, geometry, and patterns. Heavily inclined toward a modern aesthetic, I tell visual stories with clean compositions and an authenticity that helps bring your brand to life and connect more deeply with your followers. My work is a great fit for passion-driven businesses and those who aim to make their customers’ lives brighter, happier, and more energetic and fun.
You can almost always find me in a comfy chair sipping on a good latte from a local cafe—or homemade, if I’m working in. You’ll know me by my bright pink hair and well-worn jeans.

Since 2011, I have been lucky to photograph the best of the fitness, health, and wellness community in New England and beyond. As a commercial portrait photographer, I frequently work with fitness and athletic brands creating authentic and compelling imagery for advertising campaigns of all sizes.
I was a film studies major with a photojournalism minor in college and I have always enjoyed telling stories through the photos I take.
I was born and raised in Boston and thrilled my parents by settling down here when my backpacking days were over (or paused – I’ll get back there someday). When I’m not taking photos, you can find me exploring nature trails, baking sourdough, and patiently waiting for warmer weather to return.
