Sydney lifestyle, editorial and tourism photographer James Horan is originally from Ireland now calls Australia home.
James fulfills the needs of editorial, commercial and corporate clients with an eye for detail, a sense of humor and a style rooted in documentary photography. Much of his personal work focuses on the quirky side of life.
When not on assignment or working on personal projects James loves spending time with his family, drinking big mugs of tea, eating cake and wishing he had hair, a dog and a field of Donkeys.
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…
I love Africa; it’s pretty much all I’ve known. My family settled here in Zambia in the late 1800s and I was raised on a remote cattle ranch in the North West of the country bordering Angola and Congo. I now, somewhat reluctantly, live near a city (so as to be able to leap on a plane) but loyally continue the family farming tradition by raising two bad-tempered rabbits and an orange cat named Morris.
Whether on a non-profit assignment or a commercial shoot, I take pride in my ability to think quickly on the ground and use my local knowledge and skills to help ensure the success of a shoot, even when the proverbial whatsit is wending its merry way, inevitably, towards the fan.
Like many photographers, my daily existence tends to be somewhat solitary when I’m not actually shooting, so I thrive on constantly meeting new people and working as part of a creative team.
My clients include WWF, The Nature Conservancy, Ogilvy, Y&R, The Financial Times, The Telegraph, USAID, PSI, PATH, WSUP, Concern Worldwide, World Bicycle Relief, Intercontinental Hotels, Taj Hotels and Tsogo Sun.

Gabriella Marks is a San Franciscan expat music shooter turned chef-and-farmer groupie. She arrived in New Mexico on pure intuition, but knows why she stays: the spectacular high desert light, the lenticular clouds, and the humbling experience of urging a single squash plant from the dry clay soil and ancient pueblo pottery shards in the garden. Her respect for, and relationships with, the farmers and chefs in the region grows daily.
A recognized name in the regional food world, Gabriella has been expanding her horizons to encompass lifestyle and portrait work in the Southwest and beyond.
From a working perspective, she’s driven to discover in every single shot an opportunity to frame moments and light in harmonious and striking detail. Perhaps the most single most powerful thing she has learned is how essential good listening – to the client, to the subject, to the environment – is crucial to creating the right image.
Gabriella lives just a touch north of Santa Fe out in the wilds of Pojoaque with her very short and rather long chiweenie, and an opinionated flock of little feathered dinosaurs, commonly known as garden variety backyard chickens.
I became a photographer because I am curious about the world. I love to travel, discover, and explore; to observe and document moments that reveal the essence of a person or an environment.
As I was growing up, my family traveled quite a bit and photography was a way to enrich my own experience and to share my vision with others. When I first picked up a camera it was a satisfying fit. I loved the way I could see something with my eye, imagine how I wanted it to look as a photograph, and then use the camera to capture that image.
I got a degree in history and always thought I would follow in my family’s footsteps and wind up in academia but upon moving to NYC after college I discovered the possibilities of commercial photography. Right away I knew it was the perfect way to combine my love for visual storytelling with my curiosity and excitement about the world.
That was twenty years ago and since then I’ve been busy traveling and shooting and even made a move to Connecticut with my wife and two kids. We miss the bustle of the city but definitely enjoy the relative calm of gardening and chasing our chickens around the yard.
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.

I’m a documentary filmmaker and photographer from Brooklyn, NY. Widely exhibited, my work consists largely of telling well-intentioned and respectful stories about people on journeys – people who either are experiencing great challenges or who have overcome such challenges. My most recent film project, "Hello Sunshine”, profiles a woman who has survived decades of gun violence and domestic violence trauma and has channeled these traumas into service – saving the lives of those in active opioid addiction and supporting the families of murder victims.
In addition, I have an on-going project about the impact of gun violence on a diverse group of Americans. Young, old, rich, poor, in big cities and in rural communities – “It Takes Us” shows how gun violence cuts through the heart of the country. “It Takes Us” has been published globally and presented at colleges, universities, medical centers, and more.

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.
Based in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

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.

Ilan Godfrey (b 1980) is a South African photographer, who’s work explores the diverse social, political, economic and environmental currents that shape contemporary South Africa, giving viewers a broader, and at the same time, more deeply personal understanding of the country they live in but seldom truly gets to grips with. His photographic practice includes extensive research and focuses on issues that expose South Africa’s constantly shifting landscape, documenting the country with an in-depth and intimate conscience. By conveying through long-term, multi-layered projects a process of investigative narration with photography, he reveals varied aspects of societal change across the country.

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.
Call him Doug. It’s only "Douglas" because douglevy.com was taken.
Doug grew up halfway between Boston and Providence and now lives just north of the city, but,
Doug spent six years umpiring professional baseball.
So he’s not really a huge Red Sox fan.
Doug started umpiring Little League games when he was 13.
Doug believes that photos should show who you are, not just what you look like.
Doug thinks that if you ever find yourself in Birmingham, you need to eat barbeque at Jim ‘n Nicks.
Doug thinks everything tastes better with hot sauce.
Except for cereal, that would be weird.
Doug also knows that there is a Bruce Springsteen song for every occasion.
