Based in Greenville, South Carolina
I’m a photographer based in South Carolina. I spent my childhood going to grade school in places like Yugoslavia and South Korea, and I know just enough Spanish to keep me out of trouble, which is not very much. My superpower is that I can sleep through anything.
I believe there is an inherent truth in making photographs. They should be honest and humble. My work comes from a place of curiosity and enthusiasm. Through a genuine connection and a sense of humor, my goal is to combine people’s grace, dignity, and charm. How I achieve that goal will vary from shoot to shoot, but my desire is always the same – to create technically sound images that grab you emotionally.
In the past 15 years, I have photographed exactly one NBA Star, one Formula One Driver, and one Space Archeologist. More importantly, I have looked through my lens to see countless doctors, nurses, teachers, chefs, farmers, warehouse workers, authors, yogis, artists, musicians, actors, dancers, poets, and lots of cute kids.
My very first job was at a commercial photo lab. On good days I’d get to print images of local bands – The Smiths, New Order and The Stone Roses.
Being young and foolish, I moved to Los Angeles, with notions of becoming a fashion photographer. Three years of photographing model portfolios – printing the resulting images while balanced on the toilet in my tiny bathroom – cured me of such notions. I put away my camera and started writing for magazines instead.
I moved to Brooklyn, NY. In total, I published more than one hundred articles, and invariably felt like I was working for my own non-profit. I also attempted and failed to write two novels, and attempted and failed to avoid working in restaurants.
I picked-up the camera again – digital now! In 2008 I moved to Austin, TX. A friend opening a restaurant needed photography for his website, and I took the project on. I’ve been making pictures ever since.
Since 2011, I have been lucky to photograph the best of the fitness, health, and wellness community in New England and beyond. As a commercial portrait photographer, I frequently work with fitness and athletic brands creating authentic and compelling imagery for advertising campaigns of all sizes.
I was a film studies major with a photojournalism minor in college and I have always enjoyed telling stories through the photos I take.
I was born and raised in Boston and thrilled my parents by settling down here when my backpacking days were over (or paused – I’ll get back there someday). When I’m not taking photos, you can find me exploring nature trails, baking sourdough, and patiently waiting for warmer weather to return.
I have always had a vivid imagination and restless spirit. Growing up, I resisted routine. I dreamt in moving and still images. I imagined the light that burns inside people shining outward, giving colour to space and objects, spreading like long fingers over my community to move life like a musician makes music. The things I imagined told the story of my life and all its contradictions; more than anything, I wanted to capture that life. Soon, I discovered photography and the means of capturing it was in my hands. The beauty in the everyday existence of ordinary people that I once imagined became the subject of my art, through which I capture images focusing on the human face and its unique ability to convey a person’s spirit. There is nothing else like it. My photographs are thus inspired by the ineffable and under-appreciated quality of the human face as unlike anything else in existence. It is, on one level, as profane as any body part, made of flesh and common enough among people; and yet our faces are unmatched in their abilities to reveal, if even fleetingly, something divine. Through portraiture – indeed, the photographic study of the face – my work emphasizes that which reveals us and conceals us, defines and perplexes us, moves and stupefies us, eludes and demands knowing. My portraits depict the intersectionality of the human face as a liminal subject joining the sacred and profane.
A Charleston, SC native turned Florida girl. Life is about slowing down, loving people, and laughing loud enough your neighbors recognize you from the next aisle at the grocery store.
A full time photographer since 2008, I got my start photographing life and people, but have unexpectedly fallen in love with photographing food along the way.

Hey there. As you may have guessed, my name Lincoln Barbour and I am neither a president or someone who cuts hair. What I am is a professional photographer based out of Portland, OR specializing in well-crafted photography for home décor and architectural product brands.

I specialize in a strong use of technical composition with an organic approach to light and color. My photography is clean but warm, controlled but casual, structured but nuanced. I take reality, blend in aspirational desire, and capture it all in a single moment. My shooting style is meticulously planned, yet comes across as effortless.
I don’t do this alone either. My scalable production team can meet your needs to deliver the best work possible for any budget. From 14-day catalog shoots with talent, stylists, catering, location scouting, and high end retouching to one simple day of architectural documentation, I will customize my services to help you achieve your desired results.
How do I do this? After 16 years of experience working with top brands, it’s safe to say I know exactly how to deliver a photo shoot.
By navigating a path between adventure and humanity, I tell stories of people on personal journeys that feel important.
I am based in Boulder, CO, but often on the road living and running out of my mini-van. I’ve driven to borders, both North and South. I’ve paddled from source to sea, and traveled coast to coast. I run high peaks and swim in valleys. I visit cities, deserts and people that I miss. I believe that it is between big canyon walls, in murky water, and on long narrow trails where strangers become the closest friends.
Combining my education in Integrated Marketing Communications with my creative eye and ear, I work with brands to tell meaningful stories in strategic ways.
Hi! I’m CJ, a commercial and editorial photographer and retoucher located in Milwaukee, WI, but serving clients all over the country. I’ve been creating visuals all of my life, and shooting photos professionally since 2006. I’ve shot with big clients like the NFL, VISA, Comcast, HBO, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, and Universal Records, along with some incredible lesser known brands as well.
I absolutely love working with clients that are willing to push their visuals to the next level and are open to experimenting together to create something that neither of us has ever seen before. I like to experiment with all kinds of light, colors, and creative processes to constantly push my photography. I’ve learned a lot over the years by building assets to match current campaigns for countless clients. This has taught me how to be a bit of a chameleon in my process and also helped me to hone in on my own definitive style. I love moody lighting that isn’t overdone – every highlight and shadow is very intentional and I tend to pay attention to all the details that most don’t. I’m a bit of a perfectionist.
Born in Melbourne, Australia Lynton Crabb’s childhood was spent in India and Papua New Guinea. After finishing high school he returned to Melbourne to study photography at RMIT University before embarking on his career as a professional photographer.
Working internationally, Crabb has created conceptual photographic campaigns for clients in the advertising and design industries and been commissioned to shoot projects for many recognised companies.
Good at creating the moment, Crabb’s story telling style sees him shooting active lifestyle, property, hotel, business based projects. He is comfortable being sent anywhere in the world (or around the corner) to create suites of images encapsulating a company or organisations activities and message.
Although carefully planned and executed his images often have the feel of candid moments. His understanding and clever use of light, as well as an ability to form a good rapport with his subject forms the basis for his graphic and engaging images.
Mary Beth Koeth was born on June 2nd, 1982 in Ohio.
She’s the youngest of five kids whose names all begin with M…she’s still not sure why her parents, Mike and Marlene, thought that was a good idea.
Her parents moved to Texas when she was one, and she quickly embraced the Texas uniform: cowboy boots and a slight food stain on the lower bottom corner of her shirt.
She survived Catholic elementary and grade school despite the fact that she told a priest during confession that she had robbed a bank.
Koeth went to an all-girls college prep where she spent the majority of her time in the darkroom sniffing hazardous chemicals and forgetting to shave her legs.
She was a vegetarian for eight years…then lemon chicken happened.
She spent three and a half years at Texas Tech University and a semester in Florence dreaming about hot make-out sessions in the darkroom, but came out with a Design Communication degree instead.
Armed with visions of power suits and briefcases, Mary Beth moved to Kansas City to work as a designer for Hallmark Cards.
She later moved overseas to further her greeting card design skills with Hallmark UK.

PEOPLE are my focus.
A photograph is merely a photograph until it sparks an emotion. It’s that connection between imagery and your visceral response.
Maybe it’s an unexpected angle or the way light creates something entirely new.
Finding unique visions is how I sign my work.
PLACES feed my soul.
More than a dot on a map, each one possesses an unmistakable
personality. I look for that character in the lens-framing it precisely to delight the eye. Often a location’s personality is intangible.
Then some visual archeology is needed to unearth it’s true meaning.
MACHINES fuel my passion.
A deeply rooted emotional connection to things that move began at birth, only accelerating from there.
More than merely metal, glass and rubber, they’re quite simply performance art.
Finding a machine’s soul is the quest I gladly undertake every time out.

Based in Rancho Santa Margarita, California
I am a commercial photographer based in Southern California, with an emphasis in creating sports lifestyle imagery.
My love for photography began when I was 11 years old with a Sports Illustrated subscription that included a free camera. Changing the plastic cameras f-stop’s from cloudy to partly cloudy, and even to the sunny setting was all the sophistication I needed to test it out the first time photographing Shamu on our family vacation. From there, as they say, the rest is history.
Having participated in sports and outdoor adventure throughout my life I naturally gravitated towards sports lifestyle imagery. It has always provided me with opportunities to challenge myself in new ways, creatively and technically. Whether I’m photographing an NBA superstar with a five minute time limit or capturing a runner in full stride, each day as a photographer is exhilarating and satisfying.

Collaborative, analytical, tireless, creatively driven, easy going, and lots of fun to work with’ – feedback from clients I hear repeatedly.

I have extensive experience working on Defense/Industrial, Finance, Healthcare, Insurance Pharmaceutical, Recruiting and Travel/Tourism advertising accounts, as well as other sectors.
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).
