A California native living in NYC, Kris has shot for brands like Nike, Apple, and Google, as well as a number of foundations and nonprofits, in over a dozen countries across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
A product of the Stanford d.school, his work is tied together by the common thread of empathy, spanning visual media & storytelling, consumer products, and international development over the past 10 years. He draws frequently from his interdisciplinary background in his commercial and documentary work, and he strives to create the most striking and meaningful imagery possible with those around him.
At the Texas House of Representatives he worked on an ongoing documentary project photographing lawmakers during the legislative session. He soon amassed a brilliant catalog of images that were created on a work-for-hire basis and can never be published by him for money. This marked the last time he would ever be paid to shoot 35mm available light with nothing but a Leica and a bag of Tri-X. At the Texas Department of Public Safety he traveled the state for six years as a Forensic Photographer. There he amassed a brilliant catalog of images he would rather not think too hard about. His work with blood spatter patterns has been called "adequate" by several DNA and Trace Evidence analysts. He subsequently worked for renowned photographer Dan Winters, who put him to work as his assistant for several years. Sequestered in Driftwood, Texas, under Winters’ tutelage, Jeff developed his photographic skills, a strong work ethic and a penchant for Red Wings.

Fernando Decillis is an Atlanta-based photographer specializing in advertising and documentary projects. Fernando was born in Montevideo, Uruguay to a teenage seamstress and an airport ramp agent. He spent his childhood roaming his town, Shangri La, asking local fisherman for advice and riding through Uruguay’s flat country roads as one of four passengers on his dad’s moped.
In an effort to escape Uruguay’s military dictatorship, the Decillis family set out for the United States. At ten years old, speaking no English, Fernando attended public school in what is known today as the Dekalb International Corridor of Atlanta, or Buford Highway.
His love of fútbol was his path to making friends with other immigrant children from all over the globe, who were simultaneously assimilating to life in the U.S.
Fernando quickly learned to rely on nonverbal communication to foster a sense of oneness on the field with teammates who all spoke different languages.
Fernando translates this skillset fluidly to photograph people from all walks of life, from world leaders to celebrities to local farmers. His award-winning photography teases a humanistic beauty out of everyday situations.
Originally from Greenfield, MA, I’ve spent over the last decade in Los Angeles working in all aspects of the photo industry, from editing major award show photos, to developing brand imagery, photographing people, cosmetics, and now with a concentration on food and beverage.
I bring this well rounded photo background and some good old fashioned punk rock DIY resourcefulness to every project!
If you see me in the wild say hello, I’m pretty nice.

Andrea D’Agosto is a Los Angeles food photographer. She grew up in a small town in Wisconsin working in her family’s restaurants where food presentation and family recipes sparked her interest. After attending art school in Madison Wisconsin, she moved west to Los Angeles, since then Andrea has been photographing food-related products, chefs, restaurants and cookbooks on the West Coast and beyond.
I specialize in creating conceptually and visually rich images. Working on still life, food and product photography in my studio is where I feel most at home, although paddling a kayak is a very close second. Utilizing my knowledge of technical lighting and my eye for detail, I am able to make objects appear better on screen and in print than they would to the naked eye. My work can be found in many national advertising campaigns, as well as editorial magazines, and of course, plenty of e-commerce websites. With 10 years of photographic experience and a BFA from RIT, I am ready to help you bring your shoot to life.

Will could double as Saitama from One Punch Man and only wears various shades of blue or olive. He hails from the midwest, but somehow only has the accent when he says, “bagel.” In a past life, Will was an accountant and almost went to grad school for Philosophy. Don’t ask him about The Empericists unless you have a few hours. He’s your go-to guy for technical jargon and lighting know-how, and if you can’t ever get his attention during a shoot, it’s because he’s doing math in his head.
Tara’s most relatable character is Ash from Fantastic Mr. Fox. She grew up in the South Georgia swamplands, and she thinks ketchup is a food group. In her past lives, she worked in coffee, food and bev, retail, floral design, and she even taught high school literature. Somehow all of those past experiences perfectly combined to aid in her styling & aesthetic decisions while photographing. She’ll be your hype girl on set and make sure you’re well caffeinated.

Urs Bigler had an early insight into the world of photography, having been “brought up” in his father’s studio. He is constantly looking for new challenges in his commercial and personal projects.
Urs’ diverse artistic style has ensured that he has been included in Lürzer’s Archive ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide’ in recent years, and has been nominated several times for the AOP Awards.
My work spans many different genres – from shooting people to focusing on things we wear, the things we eat, to the places we live, to the things we love, and the things we crave. I love to capture it all. People ask me to help them tell stories through a lens. I can do that – I love it.
For me, image making isn’t just capturing a moment in time, it’s several moments combined. Blending, shaping and sculpting with light is at the heart of my vision. I’m obsessed with light. Not just on set, later in a dim room I build an image from the ground up with the goal of creating still and moving images that stand out in a world of clutter.
Growing up in CA, my parents worked in retail. They told me I could do any job I want, but not in retail. In high school I signed up for a photography class. That’s all it took, a dream come true.
I’m not interested in showing you how clever I am, I want to show you how cool it can look.

Dubai based professional photographer / videographer with more than 10 years of experience, I began my career as a graphic designer. However, my passion for lights, shades and colors led to me morphing into a photographer.
Light is something that has always fascinated me. The same location seen at different times under different light conditions leaves the photographer in me amazed. Most of my photography inspirations are from cinema; cinematographer Roger Deakins is my all time favorite. Some day I hope to possess a portfolio – and a professional attitude – similar to that great man!
Over the last 8 years in the UAE, I’ve contributed my photography skills to magazines such as BBC Good Food, CitizenK, WatchTime, InsideOut, Friday, Gulf News and Fatfeat, to name a few.
I love meeting and interacting with people every day… some of them I take along in this journey called life.
