Kat Schleicher is a freelance commercial and editorial photographer. She was born on the coast of a great lake in Michigan, spent her childhood on a little farm in Central Illinois, lived next to a rice field in Japan, the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and the hills of Los Angeles. She currently resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where she and her husband are raising their two young children. She started her photography education at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio.
Born in Louisiana (the city), Missouri (the state), on the banks of the mighty Mississippi (the river) I was given the name of a French actress my mother saw on tv, forever imbuing me with a love for all things French.
I grew up in the Midwest, spending most of my time meandering in the creek near our farm, with my best friend, my dog Snoopy. As a teenager, I began to notice that I mentally composed what I observed into still black and white images, and I wondered if I might have a talent for photography. I took a community college class–Photo 101, and hung out in downtown St. Louis, trying to blend into walls, and capture people and life–in fact "truth" on film. I was hooked!
I set off for Santa Barbara to attend Brooks Institute and learn the craft of photography in a hilltop mansion overlooking the ocean.
After graduating with a BA, I worked my way up from apprentice to advertising photographer and have been lucky enough to work in this industry ever since.
I now live by the sea, in Santa Monica, and have my studio in Hollywood. I love the ocean, the mountains, biking, playing pool & reading (never enough time)!!
I like to surround my self with talented, hard working, funny, cool people…no drama, no egos.
My goal: To make something significant or beautiful, maybe even both, and have fun doing it!
Plain and simple, I am an unapologetic pursuer of pretty pictures. Pretty pictures that capture laughter, color, sunlight, and the good life. Yep, that’s what I like to do.
Born in Florida, childhood summers in California, and thrice Texas transplant (once for college, once for work, and once for beloved husband.) Liberal arts degree in history; various jobs after college that made photography seem like the best career in the world; married with kids; owner of one seriously adorable and ornery dog; and a "human pinball" technically residing in Austin, TX, though frequently found in Florida and Chicago, or in a window seat headed elsewhere.

When worlds collide!
Missy and Chelsea here! We met a handful of years ago while working alongside each other at a local studio. We aligned seamlessly (pun intended!) and found ourselves having the same dedication and passion for photography and all the nitty gritty that goes along with it. After work cocktails quickly turned into a lasting friendship full of road trips, vacations, adventures, collaborations, and a metric ton of shenanigans!
Queue the lightning bolt striking something and sparks flying moment… Truth be told, we went into work one day, had the same idea, on the same day and then poof! started a production company. The idea was to build up a production company, continue to be commercial photographers, have a studio the community could use, and grow into offering workshops and professional photography development. Houston, we have take off!
The Amy Rose Productions philosophy has always been to bring our personal life values of loyalty, resolve, passion, reaching for the stars, and wonder to every project and client. It’s that character that keeps us motivated, clients excited, and the photographs fresh!
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.
Bobbi Lin is a New York and Los Angeles based photographer. Born in the far east, raised in the wild west, Lin grew up on uni, Taco Bell, and everything in between. While studying photography at Parsons Paris, Lin fell in love with being behind the camera, "a film camera around your neck is like a backstage pass to cloistered places and peoples". Lin began her career as an editor and product developer at Martha Stewart Living, later moving on to freelance life as a set designer + prop stylist. Now she shoots food and still life for national and international brands, and travels on assignment in search of food and "real" life.
Matthew Coughlin is an award-winning commercial and editorial photographer based in the southeast. Convenient to major markets and the rural small towns in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana, Matthew also travels across the U.S.—as long as there’s coffee and a good sports team to be had. Matthew’s unwavering passion for portraiture coupled with his innate talent and personable nature, have led him to work with many of the world’s most renown brands, agencies, publications and companies, including Nike, Oakley, ESPN and Sports Illustrated. In the true spirit of teamwork, Matthew works hard, plays well with others and loves partnering with clients to collectively bring their visions to life. He has an uncanny knack for movie trivia and bringing out the best in those around him—especially those in front of his camera.
My passion for all things culinary drives my love of crafting stories and images for food and beverage brands. On location or in the studio, with a large crew, or just myself with a chef, I enjoy collaborating with brand managers, art directors or directly with clients to bring their vision to the screen or print.
Some like to take the easy road, others prefer the path less travelled. I am a fan of the latter – I thrive on challenge, detail, and problem solving. It’s that passion that makes me crave the right shot, right set, and most mouth-watering styling. Food photography is not a simple path from idea to execution – it’s an exploration and often a collaboration. When I first began to explore this type of work I knew it would make for an epic creative journey from my first attempts at lighting, to the way I continue to push myself creatively today. I am always exploring and I don’t think I’ll ever stop learning.
When I’m not in the kitchen or the studio you’ll find me happily collecting my share of sand and dirt out on the mountain bike trails in Central Florida. To me there is no better feeling than the rush you get from a job well done…except maybe the rush of rolling along a beautifully flowing trail with some happy jumps and berms in a beautiful wooded setting.
I have a pretty simple life. I like traveling, coffee, and laughing. . . ideally, all at once. I live on a small farm in Ireland, where my partner Olivia and I have an animal sanctuary. I was first handed an old Kodak Brownie camera at age 10. I went on to college where I studied photography and graduated at the top of my class. After a handful of photo jobs, I stumbled into producing. With its fast-paced creativity and non-stop action in captivating images, the advertising world swept me right off my feet. In my years in this industry, I’ve worked as a photographer, director and producer for clients like Sony, Cadillac, Honda, Bushmills, HP and IBM. I’ve organized and executed photo and video shoots for everything from food and yoga to homes, cars, and aerospace. If you can think of it, I’ve put a shoot together for it. After all this time, I’ve realised why I truly love what I do; I love people’s stories, and the chance to help tell those stories. And I especially love telling those stories using visual media, which brings depth and dimension to a narrative like nothing else.
