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.

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!

Hi… Clark here. I’m a people and location specialist based in small town Maryland; but my sense of adventure, and thankfully my clients, take me pretty much anywhere and everywhere. I cut my teeth in the still photography world where I thrive, and more recently I’ve developed my talent as a filmmaker & director. In addition to enjoying the people and exploration, one of my favorite parts of the process is pairing strong visuals & powerful moments with the soundscape that plays in my mind. I’m a huge fan of road trips, backroads, and getting lost. When I’m not working I like to ride my bikes, spend time in the mountains, or stare at a map and find a new place to get lost. I’ve been blessed to have been doing this gig for quite a while, but my dad still wants to know what I’m going to do when I grow up. I’m still hopeful that I won’t have to.
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.
Combining a passion for all things outdoors with a unique creative eye, Stephen creates images for the world’s leading outdoor manufacturers and publishers. He developed his vision as a natural landscape photographer, and now applies that creative vision to active outdoor and lifestyle images.
Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I’m a commercial and editorial photographer based in Philadelphia and ready to travel anywhere. What does that mean, exactly? I work with anyone who has a story to tell about their brand and recognizes the value of images to accomplish that. I work with small non-profits and large pharmaceutical companies alike, always with the goal of conveying emotion and authenticity by connecting with the people I photograph. I’d like to think that the greatest skill I bring to a photo shoot has nothing to do with cameras or lighting, it’s empathy and respect for the people who trust me to tell their stories.
I love sleeping in a tent, dark roast coffee, darker chocolate, pepperoni pizza and my dog Max, even though he kicks me in his sleep (We’re working on it).
Hi, I’m Kamil. I’m a photographer living and working in Vancouver, BC. I’m available for editorial, advertising, and personal commissions worldwide. I hold Canadian and EU passports. My photographic practice is centered around many things that don’t quite make perfect sense in my brain, such as the how and why of colour densities, how does the process itself influence the final photograph, and how to intersect graphic art with the visceral documentary experience. So when I’m working, I’m usually thinking about all these things at once. I’m currently particularly interested in projects that hold cultural or environmental significance, be they in advertising, editorial, or personal art. But I’m not saving any lives, so all that to say, I love my work, and I have a lot of fun with it.

Go find the strange and the arresting. Make it personal, with tenderness and respect. Go analog, go tethered, go untethered, change where the sun is relative to your lens, switch out the softbox, put a grid on it. Put a gel on it. Put another gel on it. Kick the tripod. Ask if there’s another view, another room, another flavor, a favorite record, a very first book, a pair of shoes that will never be thrown away. Say yes. Ask if there’s any way they can put sod down in time for the shoot tomorrow. Ask if there’s wifi, if there’s a good sandwich shop nearby, if there are any quirks, anything they’re known for. Ask if they know any good jokes. Tell a good joke. Ask if they like their smile. Make it sing. Make it up as you go along. Make it worth the expense. Make it great.

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.
