At Dean Lavenson Photography, Dean brings an utter passion to the set. He is a master with light and an absolute perfectionist. He is as giddy about photography today as when he was a student. And with that passion comes with over 25 years of experience. After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography and freelancing in L.A. for a few years, Dean relocated his family from Santa Barbara, California to Louisville in 1989. He’s still trying to figure out how that happened. All he remembers is a big yellow Ryder truck with a matching yellow ’73 VW Bug in tow and his wife, Dianne, crying across every state line. Dean still dreams about the beach, but over the years he’s grown to love Louisville. As for how Dean first got started with a camera? Now that’s a long story. Let’s just say, he was on his way to becoming the next Wynton Marsellis. Lucky for Mr. Marsellis, Dean ended up in Beginning Photography as a high school senior. Ask him in person and he’ll give you the looooong version.
Hi, I’m John. I am a commercial and editorial photographer specializing in lifestyle, fashion, and beauty imagery. I enjoy telling stories with pictures of people. I grew up on the banks of the Tennessee River, in an area of northern Alabama best known for its legendary recording studios and its ample fresh water. The grandson of a boat builder, I spent most of my childhood splashing around in the latter. My love for being in, on, and near the water continues to this day and has led me to the shores of South Florida, where I live with my wife, Erin, and our daughter, Emilia. (You may even see water make an appearance in my work from time to time.) I picked up the camera professionally in 2009 and have not looked back. When not working on a project, I can be found scribbling in my notebook, playing guitar for an audience of two, debating the intricacies of life with a toddler, or predictably, somewhere near the water.

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 was born curious and, forced into patience by my parents, I became fairly observant. In a day gone by, I grabbed a camera. Now I suspect that every photograph I have made –and will make, for that matter– is a piece of a colossal puzzle that I expect to complete in no immediate future.
That is why I take photography so seriously; to portray with a sense of humor the paradigms that the human condition presents, i.e., life’s greatest secret.
It is all just one big joke.
Just like his jocular ocular tenor hates overblown speaking, Rodrigo declares himself a fan of irony and a solemn adversary of speaking in the third person.
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.
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.

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.
In both my personal and commercial projects, What interests me stays the same- convey stories, breathe life into concepts and externalize emotions through conceptual and sometimes surreal images.
I do commercial photography for Ad agencies, magazines, brands, artists and private companies.
In my personal project, “The Surrealistic Pillow,” I fuse the real with the surreal, creating dream-inspired tableaus from images of my imagination.
The series is a result of a ten year quest to catalog these fragments, it’s been featured in art fairs and exhibitions around the world, including London, Brussels, Spain and Germany.
These images are created using careful camera work, computer editing and intricately layered individual components.
I have a passion for narrative storytelling within the world of food & beverage photography. No matter what the framework and parameters are, I strive to make fun images that pop with color and contrast.

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.
Stewart was born in Montreal inside an elevator during a snowstorm to an architect dad and an actress mom. Some say that this is how he got his discerning sense of shot design and a love of casting people. Although, none of this ever seemed relevant to him. Working out scenes at the dinner table for a solid 17 years while living at home, definitely left a mark on how he thinks. He gets a charge out of working with people from all walks of life, not only due to his upbringing but mostly due to his innate curiosity in hearing their stories and learning about what makes others tick.
It was this curiosity that drove Stewart to create a monograph titled “Identity”, a biopic project featuring well known and unusual people. Each portrait in the book is combined with their own personally handwritten quotes, expressing their uniqueness & individuality. Walter Isaacson comments, "Each page will delight you, and also make you think. It’s a treasure.” Likewise, Stewart’s most recent title, “Seeing Red”, takes a fun jab at the urban myth of redheads becoming extinct.

Allo! Bonjour! Ciao! Hola!
I see you’ve reach the about me area, where you will read about all of my deepest secrets. Maybe not. How about a quick, not so deep introduction?
My name is Stephen, Stevie is what my grandma has called me since I was born. My middle Name? Chris. There ya go.
I am a commercial and advertising photographer with a propensity towards the slightly (or very) surreal or dramatic. I think life can be a bit plastic and malleable. To me, it looks better that way, and usually more fun. A great sci-fi or adventure story, comic book or movie, is what I always wish the world would more resemble. I think that’s part of the reason I went down the path in being a photographer. I can always create my own way of seeing everything.
