Antoine Doyen was born in 1982 in Nancy, France.
As he was getting bored in University in 2005, he dropped out of Sociology so he could fly to West Africa and see what kind of movies where shot and watched there. What should have been a scientific study became a series of images that brought him to photography as a job; he never showed up in class ever again. Back in France, the newspaper "Metro" sent him on assignment to the Cannes Film Festival: that’s how he gets into portrait, by chance. He then enrolls in a photojournalism class at the EMI-CFD (Paris).
He works on assignment for a variety of news outlets (Le Monde, L’Express, Le Parisien Magazine, Les Echos, Studio Cine Live, The Wall Street Journal…) and communication agencies.
First a portrait photographer, he also ventures in the long-format realm, currently documenting tractor pulling competitions… and the life of catholic priests. In any case, the subject that matters is commitment & passion.

I am a seeker, an artist, a photographer, a father, a husband, a lover of all things eclectic, a listener, a cook, a marketer, a business person, an outdoorsman and voyeur. I’ve photographed everyone from CEOs to celebrities to industry leaders to politicians to the every day "regular" person for over thirty years. I’ve hung out of helicopters, staged robberies, worked with models in the Caribbean, negotiated access to rooftops in Times Square, and once took 46 flights to Europe in 6 months all for the perfect image. I love that commercial photography allows me to problem solve while collaborating with different people in different places every day. I knew I found “my thing” pretty early when I noticed the world falling away while I’m shooting – it’s magical. My work has been featured in national advertising, publications, billboards, annual reports, and more. I’ve also had numerous solo and group exhibitions of both my commercial and personal work, and I’m proud to have received national and international awards.

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 West Sussex, United Kingdom
Through my work I’m fortunate to get some wonderful opportunities to collaborate with remarkable people and visit interesting places to make beautiful images and occasionally videos. I believe the best work comes from creating a frictionless and relaxed atmosphere on set for the subjects while understanding client and brand requirements.
I’m interested in the human experience. In our rush to the end in search of perfection, we often overlook the things right in front of us. The everyday and banal can be more beautiful than the glamorous, and the imperfect often holds more meaning than flawless. Start with why dare to be authentic, and never settle for anything less than excellence.
Blair’s career began with his father sitting down with him to help teach him about photography. At the time Blair was in high school and it was for a class, however early on there was passion for the art. It was at that point that his father gave him his very first camera, a 1972 Nikon F. The camera still sits on Blair’s desk at home to remind him of the humble beginnings of his career.
Blair has had the good fortune to shoot campaigns around the globe for a diversified list of clients that range from television shows shot for The Discovery Channel to athletes photographed for Muscle Milk. In August of 2008 he decided to have his hand at photographing autos, not out of a quest for work, but in an attempt to create some images to put on his walls… He began shooting for Chevrolet two months later.
Even with the success and recognition that Blair has received in the photographic world, he still holds true that his most important legacy will be helping other photographers to be successful in their careers. On set he constantly pushes the idea that everyone is equally important, from the assistant to the photographer. This demeanor and approach towards comfortable shoots has made for clients that return for years.

We get a lot of questions about how a photography team works. It’s not too difficult to explain. Joe Magnani and Jared Schlachet have been working togther for over 10 years (and now you know why we went with JSquared rather than Schlachet and Magnani). You get two sets of eyes carefully watching the set and the monitor as images come in. You get two individuals who genuinely care about the quality of the photography we are handing to the client. Best of all you get two guys who are easy to work with and are willing to do anything for the shot. We are a team involved with all aspects of the production from pre to post.
Their work has appeared in numerous magazines including international magazines. We work with all level of clients from small business’ to entertainment networks. Some clients include Warner Bros, CW, Too Faced Cosmetics, Angeleno Magazine, Emmy Magazine, and many more.

Half Hawaiian, Half Swedish, Willy Branlund emerged on the photography scene after spending six years as a assistant/lighting tech for Michael Thompson and Michael Muller.
“Growing up surfing and working my family’s land in Hawai’i has a lot to do with my photography.
Like my childhood, my process is simple. I ask questions of my sitters. I get answers. And the answers are photographed.”
It takes Willy Branlund — literally — seconds to get a shot. He doesn’t close his eyes, hold down the button, and pray; there’s a purpose behind each photograph he makes. Every clip reveals a beautiful nuance of reality.
Ultimately, like his close Hawaiian family ties, the intimacy he has with his subjects is the thread that holds everything together.
Willy Branlund’s photography represents who he is as a son, a dad, a friend and an artist — no touch-ups, no Photoshop, unabashedly truthful, untethered.
Every photograph begins with an idea. The job of a photographer is to not only capture the vision, but manipulate it into art, bigger than life and beyond any initial expectations.
