I have been living and working as an editorial and commercial portrait photographer in San Francisco since 2006. After receiving my MFA in Photography from the Academy of Art, I started shooting for magazines, design agencies, tech companies, and dance companies.
I often find the most mundane moments endearing and try to capture them when I’m making photos. I like telling simple but honest stories and showing the beauty in people as they are – human, real, and imperfect.
I have taught Editorial Photography at AAU and was a board member of the San Francisco chapter of APA.

Patrick was born in Nuremberg, Germany and grew up in a small town in Franconia. He studied photography and design at the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences (FH Bielefeld), where he subsequently graduated.
In 2011 he exchanged the urban setting of Berlin, where he lived and worked for several years, for the sunny beaches of Los Angeles, where he is currently based.
Patrick loves working with real people in their natural surroundings and stages them in an authentic way. His conceptual still life work often encompasses a humorous commentary. He is the happiest when he is in the midst of creating a new series of images and enjoys every part of the process, from conception to execution.
I recently moved to Boston after 14 years in NYC.
Besides photography I try to complete triathlons and attempt to play soccer.
Sometimes I even venture outside in my Yankees cap.
I had an amazing high school photography teacher.
After graduation I moved to NYC.
I assisted some great photographers –
Including Frank W. Ockenfels III and Jill Greenberg.
I interviewed for a job at Mr. Irving Penn’s studio.
I told him he should go digital.
I didn’t get hired.
Figured it was time to strike out on my own.
Along the way I got married to my beautiful wife.
And now I have 3 amazing kiddos ages 9, 6, and 2.
I’m training them in Photoshop.
Hire me so you can see their amazing skills.
It all starts with my grandfather, a Cuban publicist.
From my childhood, from his hand I began my journey through the world of the visual; Photo after photo, logo after logo, I had my first approaches with the textures, shapes and colors that define my work today.
In my youth, while studying BANG Advertising! I discovered cameras and photography and decided to dedicate life and senses to them.
I traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina, I studied photography and then I worked in the United States as an assistant to different photographers, expanding my technical skills and my vision, in a mixture of experience, passion, knowledge and the definition of my own style.
I work as a photographer for music bands, magazine publishers and advertising campaigns, always reflecting my personal style and a special interest in highlighting the details, trying to see beyond what a single image reflects.

Miami-based photographer, Sonya Revell, creates imagery that emerges from her delightful daydreams of dazzling candy colors and connects closely with complex and compelling characters.
Also, she is a fan of alliteration.
While she now calls Florida home, Sonya originally hails from the great state of Kentucky (can you tell from the picture?), where she attended the same high school as Muhammad Ali.
Sonya considers eating ice cream a hobby and was once struck by lightning (indirectly, but it was still quite shocking).
While Revell still fantasizes about running off to join the circus or perhaps becoming a race car driver, the truth is, nothing tops image making.
Hi… Clark here. I’m a people and location specialist based in small town Maryland; but my sense of adventure, and thankfully my clients, take me pretty much anywhere and everywhere. I cut my teeth in the still photography world where I thrive, and more recently I’ve developed my talent as a filmmaker & director. In addition to enjoying the people and exploration, one of my favorite parts of the process is pairing strong visuals & powerful moments with the soundscape that plays in my mind. I’m a huge fan of road trips, backroads, and getting lost. When I’m not working I like to ride my bikes, spend time in the mountains, or stare at a map and find a new place to get lost. I’ve been blessed to have been doing this gig for quite a while, but my dad still wants to know what I’m going to do when I grow up. I’m still hopeful that I won’t have to.

I believe that photography is more than just a technical exercise, but a synthesis of vision, moment, and process that illustrates and amplifies something about the subject that is usually unseen. I grew up in Canada but now live in Western NY with my wife and kids. We love it here and a lot of my personal work focuses on the creatives and entrepreneurs who are busting their asses to make this Rust Belt city thrive again – and I’m grateful that I get to be a part of telling this story. I’m allergic to cats, penicillin, and boredom – being a photographer is a good cure for the last one because it lets me tell a different story every day. I create images for advertising agencies, magazines, and corporate clients across the US and Canada – Making quirky and dramatic portraits of subjects that range from corporate innovators to professional athletes to counterculture rebels is what I’m best at.
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.

I think sharing food is a fundamental way for us to connect, understand, and celebrate each other. It’s something we all look forward to: a cocktail or dinner at the end of the day, a recipe handed down, a pizza. That’s what makes food celebratory.
With the onset of COVID-19, and people all over the world having to practice social isolation, these values surrounding food have been amplified. We swap recipes, share pictures of dishes we’ve made and the nostalgic memories they bring — to fill the void left by the absence of human interaction. Food it seems is the common thread in our lives, sustenance for many, history, culture, and memory for some but, identity for all.
My photographs seek to highlight these meaningful connections between people and food.
