I was born into a big, footloose family in Long Beach California. I worked for more than a decade as a newspaper photographer—a job that let me chase another passion, concert photography.
In 1989 I joined the staff of Southern Living Magazine as a senior photographer for Travel. That was so much fun I stayed for almost 25 years, shooting hundreds of features, and logging more than four million frequent flyer miles. Now freelance, I still love creating story-telling images. My years of photographing music, food, and culture have made me adept at putting people at ease and working in a relaxed, energetic style.
I am represented by Wonderful Machine, while my classic concert work is represented by Rock Paper Photo, the definitive place for pop culture fine art photography. https://www.rockpaperphoto.com/browse-by-photographer/art-meripol More of my concert work can be view at oldschoolconcerts.photoshelter.com
I’m based in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama and always packed and ready for the next shoot. When I’m not on the road or on a shoot, you can find me walking our two dogs, cooking dinner, or playing Disc Golf.
I was born in Czechoslovakia and I am a 3rd generation artist in a new digital era. I have not been able to collect many awards, but I have had an opportunity to see a number of exotic places all over the world and to create dozens of eye-catching images for my clientele spanning from the Pacific Ocean to the Indian Ocean.
The path leading to a desired shot has become my passion that enables me to meet extraordinary people. I am convinced that thanks to my stubborn and uncompromising attitude I can achieve unique results.
Throughout the years I have focused on shooting interiors and exteriors, and I have worked on complex projects for hotels, residential spaces, advertising agencies, developers, architects, private sector clients and more. It will be an honor to decorate your site, print, billboards or personal albums with my work.

What did you want to be when you grew up? I almost became a Nuclear Engineer. Thankfully, after about a year of college physics and math, my creative brain cells wrestled control over the nerdy geek in me and pointed me to Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara. I still have a bit of that nerdy geek in me, but in a creative photographic way. The San Francisco Bay Area is where I landed after graduation and where I launched Vantage Point Photography. I love what I do. I love the process. I love creating images that cause people to pause, to look, to think and sometimes to smile. My other loves? My kids, our dog, a good hiking trail, and my SX 70 loaded with Polaroid film.

I love my job, so much it doesn’t feel like a job. Still can’t believe I get to make photos for a living.
Favorites photos? Ones that are equal parts pretty and useful.
Favorites shoots? Ones that involve a scrappy crew and client, where by the end it feels a bit like summer camp did, a bit weird to say goodbye to the people your life has revolved around for days, but we all leave feeling accomplished as a team.
Favorite subject? People of any age! Though I do love a good detail, an enticing dish, or anything that helps tell a story and inviting.
Background? Born in Florida, childhood summers in California, and thrice Texas transplant (once for college, once for work, and once for hubs.) 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 or in a window seat headed elsewhere.
Jeff Herron studied commercial photography at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan, before relocating to South Florida to pursue his passion.
For Jeff, it all started with light, lines and an innate fascination with how these two pillars of art and design translated into photography.
Jeff was immediately inspired by the works of the New Topographics movement in the 1970’s with the highly formalized, almost banal aesthetic of man-made structures within a landscape. It resonated how they were able to capture those landscapes in a way that most people wouldn’t notice, even if they saw it on a daily basis. You can see the influence here under "Personal Work".
Over the past 15 years, Jeff’s eye – coupled with his love of collaboration and dedication to his craft – has earned himself an impressive client base, spanning across the United States, the Caribbean, and beyond, including: Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, JW Marriott, Hyatt, Westin, Sheraton, AC Hotels, Knoll, CBT Architects, Siemens, Lumens, Couples Resorts, PGA Resort, OPL Hotels, Lloyd Loom, Sotheby’s, Christies, Columbia Sussex, Ett Hem Designs, Centex Construction, Bluegreen, and UBS Bank. His work has also been featured in numerous print publications such as Home Magazine, Gulfshore Life and Tropic Magazine.
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.

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.
Antonio is a commercial photographer with over 20 years of experience. Most of his clients are luxury hotels and resorts, and he enjoys covering all aspects of hospitality. Those aspects include Architecture & Interiors, Lifestyle and Food & Beverage. Antonio has also ventured into video production, and he now includes videos with most of his productions. He is also a licensed drone operator.
Antonio has collaborated with countless creative directors and brand marketers worldwide to bring their visions to life, whether following a marketing brief or working on innovative concepts with the client.
Antonio is well known for his technical photographic skills, and for this reason, he is often invited as a panellist for several photography equipment manufacturers. And due to his extensive travel and knowledge of the industry, he is a guest judge for LTG alongside Travel Channel Tv host Anthony Melchiorri from Hotel impossible and Shane Green, host of TV show Resort Rescue.
When Antonio is not travelling the world with his camera or spending time with his family, you will most likely catch him training Brazilian jiujitsu, a competitive sport he has been doing for over 20 years, and he now holds a third-degree black belt.
Born and raised in Texas, Teal now resides in Los Angeles, California. With a keen eye for detail, color, and natural light, she creates original imagery with a true sense of place for clients across the genres of travel & lifestyle, landscape, architecture, and still life. The need to travel was instilled in her at a young age. Growing up in a family of architects, artists and travelers, she is grateful to have been immersed in an environment of creativity and curiosity from the start. Before she learned how to make a photograph, she learned how to be a traveler. Travel is when she is most engaged, most inspired and most challenged. Learning bits of a new language and culture, getting lost in winding cobblestone streets or narrow dirt paths, meeting local people, and taking in every element of a moment – sights, scents, sounds and feelings. This is when she is most alive. The camera allows her to capture and share these moments.
Combining my own attributes and technical skills, I help brands tell their distinct narrative, establish their visual identity, and create memorable content for all usage and platforms.
My clients span commercial, editorial, restaurant, boutique hospitality, travel, luxury residential, publishing, B2B, B2C, D2C, and startup brands.

I have an extended network of producers, video crews, food stylists, prop stylists, studios, creative directors, and graphic designers that help to make every shoot a perfect success.
While currently growing roots in Chicago, I also have a strong client base in New York City where I spent the first ten years of my career and established myself in the creative community.
