Based in North Miami, Florida
I’m Steve Boxall. I’m a commercial and editorial fashion/lifestyle photographer, specializing in children. In fact, I like to think that my images are where fashion and lifestyle meet. For me, it’s all about capturing images of a fabulous life.
After college he moved to London to start his photographic career shooting for BBC Television.
After six years of working in London for the BBC and other clients, he left his native England to travel the world on a two-year hiatus before settling in Miami Florida.
Since moving to the USA and resuming his career, Steve has worked with some of the world’s greatest photographers, amongst them Richard Avedon. Seeing the transition from film to digital, he became a founding partner in Digital Decaf, a digital services company for the photographic industry.
Steve has 20 years of experience working in almost every aspect of the industry, and as a father of three, he loves to photograph people but especially kids. Miami-based but always traveling, he is at home shooting studio, beach, island, zero gravity, and everything in between.

Matthew Rakola (né Hakola) is a proud Maine native who learned how to photograph people by bartending. Both professions require the ability to read people quickly, anticipate their needs, and most importantly–listen. To be fair, he also learned a thing or two as a commercial photography major at Syracuse University, where he spent hundreds of hours up to his elbows in smelly photo chemistry.
I guess It’s fair that he got most of his professional training while washing dishes.
Today he uses all of these skills and more as a commercial, advertising and editorial photographer based in Washington, DC. He specializes in photographing real people doing real things and still loves to listen and learn on the job.
When he’s not writing about himself in the third person or making images, he’s probably with wife, chasing their two sons around. He’s actively lobbying his family for a pet skunk, who he is going to name Kodak. In the meantime he dotes on his two goldfish, Becky and Swimmy.
After attending Central Michigan University earning degrees in both fine art photography and psychology, followed by a three year stint working in finance, Sullivan headed south to Arizona where he turned his love of photography into a full-time occupation.
A visual storyteller and portrait seeker he aims to entertain at times yet find the true subject somewhere in all of it simultaneously, be it shooting celebrities, athletes, or the guy next door. Today, with far reaching clients, Sullivan is one of the most well respected photographers in the Phoenix Metro area.
His fine art has been shown in numbers galleries and museums around the states, including locally at the Phoenix Art Museum. Now, take the photographic world of Brandon Sullivan and fuse it with the illustrative world of Kyle Lane where collaborative designs burst through traditionally framed boundaries of visual storytelling. With their unique visual form that combines the most crucial aspects of each of their distinctive talents they are making an altogether integrated and innovative style now referred to as fotostration.
Sullivan works out of and co-owns Legend City Studios.

Willie is an award-winning photographer based in Denver, Colorado. His past lives were spent growing up in Wyoming and working as an art director in New York City. He prefers bios to be in third person.
Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
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 a commercial and editorial photographer based in Philadelphia and ready to travel anywhere. What does that mean, exactly? I work with anyone who has a story to tell about their brand and recognizes the value of images to accomplish that. I work with small non-profits and large pharmaceutical companies alike, always with the goal of conveying emotion and authenticity by connecting with the people I photograph. I’d like to think that the greatest skill I bring to a photo shoot has nothing to do with cameras or lighting, it’s empathy and respect for the people who trust me to tell their stories.
I love sleeping in a tent, dark roast coffee, darker chocolate, pepperoni pizza and my dog Max, even though he kicks me in his sleep (We’re working on it).
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.
Photography is about telling a story and I’ve been doing it as a commercial photographer for over twenty years. Whether it be through one frame or a series of images, I love making photographs that speak about the subject. I’m drawn to location choices that complement a subject yet recede enough to allow the subject to dominate the image.
Since growing up in Houston, TX in my father’s printing company, I’ve always enjoyed the meticulous nature of my business. From operating an offset press at the age of 15, I learned the importance of quality craftsmanship that has remained an important aspect throughout my life. What I truly love about photography is both the technical and artistic sides. It’s the balance of both of these that create interesting images that resonate with the viewer.
In this day of digital media and our constant bombardment by visual clutter, it is so important to make imagery that tells its story in an elegant and unique way. Whether it’s a single still photograph or a series, I enjoy making images that successfully communicate my client’s vision.
I live in beautiful Grapevine, TX along with my wife Rebecca and our two kids… Noah (17) and Annalise (15).

I am an LA based commercial photographer and I excel at helping national brands large and small devise a content strategy and asset creation plan through art direction, photography and video. With 15+ years of experience building productions, crafting treatments, planning shot lists, budgeting, hiring crews and shooting content, I know how to create engaging content that connects with viewers. I am a passionate storyteller and love collaborating with creative teams to achieve a common vision. While on set, I ensure that my ideas are thoughtful and intuitive and that my energy is contagious.
I love what I do. The challenge of making new and compelling images for my clients or for my personal work keeps me moving forward. And meeting new and interesting people is a great perk to any job.
I’m always inspired by travel to new locations and new ideas.
Starting out in Florida with an English degree, I then moved out to Boulder, Colorado, where I earned my MA in Journalism from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I might have also spent some time hiking and snowboarding while I was out there . . . .
Alex grew up in a dive bar in Minnetonka, MN, owned by his father and a partner. In the beginning, his mom worked there as a bouncer and Alex had many jobs there including janitor, dishwasher, busboy and a short-lived stint waiting tables. The bar was sold and demolished when he was 18, but in its short, glorious existence, it was both a magical and challenging place that gave Alex an appreciation for the wide spectrum of life.
His experience in photography began as an assistant in Minneapolis, MN before starting a 16-year journey as a photojournalist, digging into the world around him while working for news organizations in Iowa, Florida and North Carolina. He now creates portraiture and lifestyle photography for a variety of editorial and commercial clients while paying special attention to people and their spirit.
He currently lives in Durham, North Carolina with his wife Kallyn (a former photojournalist turned doula and documentary family photographer), their dog Caya, nine chickens and a bunch of outdoor neighborhood cats that he tries to make friends with.
He was an attendee of the Eddie Adams Workshop and his work has been recognized by American Photography, PDN Faces, POYi and other organizations.

Based in Kensington, Maryland
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.
My name is Greg. I grew up in the South. I never say no to black coffee and chess pie. I know a little bit about a lot of stuff. Like how to tie a bowline, when to prune a rose bush and what makes a tasty rub. I like to pan-fry, sautee, bake, roast and grill whatever I can get my hands on. I married a woman who likes fast cars. Together, we have a couple of kids, a couple of dogs and a trailerful of outdoor gear that is mostly mine. I love my job because I get to meet people from all walks of life. I’ve photographed truck drivers, crabbers, mariachi and linemen. Robot makers, whiskey makers, fridge makers and nut pickers. Professional wrestlers, UN ambassadors, hall-of-famers and polka enthusiasts. Surgeons, CEOs, Air Force One pilots and brewers. Every person I frame up with my camera gives me a little more insight and a broader understanding of what it means to be a person living a life on this planet. Whether I’m telling the stories of real people or working with casting agents to gather the group you like, you can bet I’ll connect with whomever we have on the other side of my camera. Gimme a call and let’s go make some pictures!
Authentic, emotive, and unusual, my images tell stories even when they stand alone.
After a couple decades running my own shop and honing my craft as a commercial and editorial photographer, I’m still enamored with the language and allure of the medium. I’m known for my ability to put people at ease — even or especially when they don’t love having their picture taken.
A successful shoot is about more than great images; it’s about great customer service. It should be a fun, thorough, and satisfying experience for the client. I enjoy the thrill of overseeing production with a crew of thirty, but also never tire of the intimacy of a small shoot. Assignments have taken me across the country from Memphis to Raleigh to Virginia Beach to Los Angeles. I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of professional talent and real people – from the executive team of a global biotech firm, to presidential primary candidates, to unhoused teens aging out of foster care.
In 2019, I relocated from St. Louis to the Pacific Northwest, and now live in weird and magical Portland with my brilliant wife Jackie and our two boys, Jupiter and George.
I make pictures primarily for editorial, corporate, science/technology, education, and advertising clients with a focus on environmental portraiture and story telling style documentary photography. Everything from landscape to food, architecture, fashion is fair game though. Love getting the call, collaborating on the process and engaging with new subjects.
Based in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I am a photographer based out of the Philadelphia area. I shoot a lot of stuff, but basically I am a portrait photographer. Whether I am in the classroom or on the fields, or shooting an event, I am always looking for the candid portrait. I love capturing the reality in people. Their spontaneity. I hope it shows.
