Born and raised in Texas, Teal now resides in Los Angeles, California. With a keen eye for detail, color, and natural light, she creates original imagery for editorial and commercial clients across the genres of travel & lifestyle, architecture, and still life.
The need to travel was instilled in her at a young age. Growing up in a family of architects, artists and travelers, she is grateful to have been immersed in an environment of creativity and curiosity from the start. Before she learned how to make a photograph, she learned how to be a traveler. Travel is when she is most engaged, most inspired and most challenged. Learning bits of a new language and culture, getting lost in winding cobblestone streets or narrow dirt paths, meeting local people, and taking in every element of a moment – sights, scents, sounds and feelings. This is when she is most alive.

I’m Daniela, a Los Angeles based food photographer and creative director. I began my career as a chef with a passion for sourcing colorful produce from local markets. I love emphasizing the beauty of real food with my images. I’m also a food stylist and recipe developer with a gorgeous prop-filled studio in Venice, California.
Whether it’s stills or motion, I collaborate with brands, restaurants and publications, bringing their creative campaigns to life, from project concept to completion.
If I’m not in the studio, you’ll find me surfing the California coast or teaching my niece how to braid a perfect purple challah.
Based in Los Angeles, California
I’m a commercial food, beverage, and product photographer living, mostly, but also working in Los Angeles. Born and raised in Phoenix (and still down to drive 6 hours through the desert to shoot there now and again). My background is in journalism and I graduated from ASU’s Walter Cronkite school in 2014 (so now you can probably figure out how old I am). Still down to do some journalism here and there, too.

Rick’s unique creative and business background has allowed him to work at a Fortune 250 Beverage Company, then to one of the largest Advertising Agencies in the US, to owning one of America’s top food and beverage Studios.
In his own words:
I grew up in the rural high plains near the Pawnee National Grasslands. Yes, very rural. My mom worked at a portrait studio and my dad, amongst many things, was a professional leather artist and taught leather craft. So, I lived in a very creative and inspiring atmosphere. Growing up in a small town allowed me to raise chickens, rabbits, and pheasants and have many pets including toads, tarantulas, possums and a raccoon. My passion for food and agriculture runs deep. I appreciate where our food comes from and I think that has played an important role in my love of food and beverage photography. Today I live on the Studio property in a beautiful environmentally friendly ranch home. Other quirky things include a degree in Taxidermy and my 1967 Bentley.

I am a commercial content creator, photographer, and videographer focused primarily on product-based advertising and marketing within the outdoor sport and cycling industries. I split my time between working both in the studio or shooting on-location for action and lifestyle content. Based in Northern Colorado, I travel around the west and midwest US for projects.
I gravitate towards the outdoor industry because that’s where my personal passions are: mountain biking, gravel riding, rock climbing, camping, hiking, etc. This is not a hard rule though. I have produced stellar works in many other industries including: beer/beverage, corporate, scientific, higher education, insurance, mobile technology, consumer electronics, local business, and more.

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.

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 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.
I love connecting the perfect visuals with exciting brands to fully realize their creative vision. It would be great to chat with you about how we can create something beautiful together.
I have a passion for narrative storytelling within the world of food & beverage photography. No matter what the framework and parameters are, I strive to make fun images that pop with color and contrast.
