I am a native of Pennsylvania, but I have been living and working as a photographer in Spain since 2011. Before that, I was a Visiting Professor at Rochester Institute of Technology.
I specialize in portrait-based stories and campaigns, but I also shoot a lot of reportage-style imagery, automobiles and short films.
My personal work normally stems from things that are a part of my life in one way or another, and represent a curiosity that I have about people. It is this curiosity that makes me want to keep being a photographer. I also love to travel.

Hey, hello, howdy. I was born and raised in Nebraska, but call Austin, Texas home. Whether I’m on assignment to photograph a celebrity portrait, lead a team on a commercial project or document a slice of life, I strive to make my images bright, colorful and energetic. My work has most recently been recognized in American Photography 32+33+34 and PDN’s 2016 Photo Annual. Also, Magnum Photos named me one of their 30 under 30 photographers in 2014.
As a photographer, I am always looking for interactions and this can take many forms. Whether it is two individuals connecting with one another, groups of people interacting, or the natural ebb and flow in nature, I want to document these moments.
When working with clients, I strive to ensure that their vision is realized, and their stories are told in a genuine and honest manner. I balance my work between commercial clients, non-profit organizations, and trying to give back to the community. This has included work for Habitat for Humanity, The Seirra Club, and Prints for Prints.

My journey as a storyteller was inspired by childhood trips with my mountaineer grandfather, who introduced me to the wonders of the natural world while sharing tales of the people and places from his adventurous life. He sparked in me a curiosity for travel, respect for different cultures and strong desire to protect the environment.
As a documentary photography, my personal work explores the close relationship between people and place. I have been working in the Western Balkans since 2013, when I first came to the region and discovered there was far more here than the stereotypes of war, ethnic divisions and the disarray of post-communism. Since then I have been sharing stories that shed light on the beauty of the Balkans, its unique cultural heritage, pristine environments and the struggle to preserve all three.

Based in Charleston, South Carolina
I was born in Charleston, SC to a big family of hard workers who loved to socialize and party together on weekends and holidays. Things could get loud and I loved it all – soaking it in from the sidelines while looking through my View-Master or tearing apart an old radio to figure out how the sound came out. Sometimes I was called on to make a martini ( I can make one for you (and me), if you’d like). Later, I studied anthropology in college and underwater archaeology in graduate school. Between my studies I played in a band, cooked in restaurants, setup a darkroom, and assisted some great photographers. I decided I wanted to take pictures and make a career of it. I moved to Berlin, traveled lots, and ultimately returned to the South. I’ve been fortunate to work with some great creatives in the advertising and editorial worlds – telling stories with pictures of people, travel, and food. Clients include: AARP, American Express, Art Culinaire, Artisan, Beam, Inc., Bon Appetit, Bulleit Bourbon, ChefWear, Conde Nast Traveler, Cooking Light, Country Living, Denny’s, Dwell, Food Arts, Food&Wine, Fresh Produce, Gallo, GQ, Hemispheres, Hostess Brands, Intercontinental Hotels, Le Creuset, Maine Magazine, Maker’s Mark, Martha Stewart Living, Mazda, Men’s Journal, The New York Times Magazine, Old Port, Outside, Ski, Southern Living, Story Farm, Time Inc., Travel+Leisure, Virtuoso Life, Wall Street Journal, Winkreative. I’m proud to be a contributing photographer to Garden&Gun, Maine and Charleston magazines. My work has been exhibited in the James Beard House, and both an editorial feature on oysters, and a book I photographed with my friend Chef Sean Brock, Heritage, have won James Beard Awards. A cookbook I photographed with Sara Foster won an IACP award for photography. When not on assignment I enjoy cycling, fishing, cooking, connecting with people, tinkering with vintage audio, and collecting oysters from the banks of the nearby Folly River. My friends call me lots of names, but I generally go by "Frank".
Ken is a Boston based commercial photographer specializing in location photography for editorial, advertising and corporate clients. His work has been featured in local and nationwide magazines and campaigns.
My name is Greg. I grew up in the South. I never say no to black coffee and chess pie. I know a little bit about a lot of stuff. Like how to tie a bowline, when to prune a rose bush and what makes a tasty rub. I like to pan-fry, sautee, bake, roast and grill whatever I can get my hands on. I married a woman who likes fast cars. Together, we have a couple of kids, a couple of dogs and a trailerful of outdoor gear that is mostly mine. I love my job because I get to meet people from all walks of life. I’ve photographed truck drivers, crabbers, mariachi and linemen. Robot makers, whiskey makers, fridge makers and nut pickers. Professional wrestlers, UN ambassadors, hall-of-famers and polka enthusiasts. Surgeons, CEOs, Air Force One pilots and brewers. Every person I frame up with my camera gives me a little more insight and a broader understanding of what it means to be a person living a life on this planet. Whether I’m telling the stories of real people or working with casting agents to gather the group you like, you can bet I’ll connect with whomever we have on the other side of my camera. Gimme a call and let’s go make some pictures!
