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.
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.

At the age of three, Al Argueta first traveled to Guatemala with his father and was utterly captivated by the country’s landscape and its Maya inhabitants. He would later live in Guatemala for two years, allowing him to formally learn Spanish and to experience Guatemala’s culture firsthand. During summers in high school and college, Al often took a month off to travel to Guatemala, exploring its jungles, ruins, and villages. It was also when he first dabbled in photography, capturing images of the people and landscapes he encountered.
In college, Al majored in Journalism and Latin American Studies, managing to squeeze in two study-abroad programs, one in Manchester and one in Maastricht, and traveled through much of Europe. After college, he interned with Costa Rica’s Tico Times, getting his first exposure to travel writing and photography, in addition to covering then-President Bill Clinton’s visit to Guatemala. Al worked briefly for a newspaper in the Virgin Islands before moving on to photography school in Hawaii. He also taught English to college students in Thailand for a time, continuing to satiate the travel bug that bit him years back.

Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina
English, Spanish, Italian
I shoot corporate, advertising and editorial commissions for international companies and publications, advertising agencies, hotels and resorts.
I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the age of 12 or 13, I got a nice toy as a gift: a fancy Kodak Fiesta. Loading 120mm roll film into the “techie” device quickly became one of my passions. Then, a family holiday trip to Machu Picchu, Peru, offered me my first breathtaking location to shoot. Afterwards, I processed the rolls, saw the results and never quit shooting since then.
I travel frequently to shoot assignments in different regions and countries. Traveling around the globe is part of my life and photography style.
My work is usually published by top companies, and publications such as Travel + Leisure, Wall Street Journal, Departures, Gourmet, The New York Times Style Magazine, Fortune, Business Week, Outside, Ocean Drive, National Geographic Traveler, Harpers & Queen (UK), Condè Nast Traveler (UK), Elle Decor (Germany) , Casa Brutus (Japan), among others.

Captivated by shadows and slices of light. Drawn to vibrant colors and moments of calm. Curious for context, connection, and humanity. A seeker of balance and the organic beauty that is found in imperfection. Always aiming to create images that provide a unique experience and engage your senses. Believer in quality over quantity.
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.
A storyteller at heart, I sometimes also contribute the written word to editorial stories that I shoot. I earned my degree in Journalism from Boston University, and Editorial and Advertising Honors from The New England School Of Photography. I feel fortunate to have created a way to combine all the things I love into an exciting and fulfilling career.
Different projects call for different levels of production – 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.
I’m interested in the human experience. In our rush to the end in search of perfection, we often overlook the things right in front of us. The everyday and banal can be more beautiful than the glamorous, and the imperfect often holds more meaning than flawless. Start with why dare to be authentic, and never settle for anything less than excellence.
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.
