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 am a seeker, an artist, a photographer, a father, a husband, a lover of all things eclectic, a listener, a cook, a marketer, a business person, an outdoorsman and voyeur. I’ve photographed everyone from CEOs to celebrities to industry leaders to politicians to the every day "regular" person for over thirty years. I’ve hung out of helicopters, staged robberies, worked with models in the Caribbean, negotiated access to rooftops in Times Square, and once took 46 flights to Europe in 6 months all for the perfect image. I love that commercial photography allows me to problem solve while collaborating with different people in different places every day. I knew I found “my thing” pretty early when I noticed the world falling away while I’m shooting – it’s magical. My work has been featured in national advertising, publications, billboards, annual reports, and more. I’ve also had numerous solo and group exhibitions of both my commercial and personal work, and I’m proud to have received national and international awards.

Adam Lerner is an NYC-based editorial and portrait photographer who shoots for magazines, fashion brands, transportation and corporate clients. He is also content creator with his YouTube channel and Photography Podcast.
After fulfilling his childhood dream of playing CBGB’s, he toured the country with band while taking pictures with his dad’s old Pentax film camera and his passion for creating music quickly translated into his photography.
When he’s not taking pictures, you’ll find him rolling down the road on a vintage BMW motorcycle or buzzing thru the woods on a mountain bike.
Adam lives in New York City with his wife and two rescue dogs, and is available for commissions worldwide.
Matthew Rakola (né Hakola) is a proud Maine native who learned how to photograph people by bartending. Both professions require the ability to read people quickly, anticipate their needs, and most importantly–listen. To be fair, he also learned a thing or two as a commercial photography major at Syracuse University, where he spent hundreds of hours up to his elbows in smelly photo chemistry.
I guess It’s fair that he got most of his professional training while washing dishes.
Today he uses all of these skills and more as a commercial, advertising and editorial photographer based in Washington, DC. He specializes in photographing real people doing real things and still loves to listen and learn on the job.
When he’s not writing about himself in the third person or making images, he’s probably with wife, chasing their two sons around. He’s actively lobbying his family for a pet skunk, who he is going to name Kodak. In the meantime he dotes on his two goldfish, Becky and Swimmy.
Bob Rives is a visual storyteller who photographs people and places for corporate, advertising and editorial clients worldwide. Using graphics, color, and a strong sense of design and light, he finds striking images in ordinary situations.

I live in Washington, DC, with my reporter wife, son and daughter.
Back in the day, I studied photojournalism at the University of Missouri and worked for some newspapers. Now, I mostly work for magazine, corporate, advertising and non-profit clients.
And when I’m not working at making images, I’m probably working over the stove, grill and/or tending bar for friends.

I became a photographer because I am curious about the world. I love to travel, discover, and explore; to observe and document moments that reveal the essence of a person or an environment.
As I was growing up, my family traveled quite a bit and photography was a way to enrich my own experience and to share my vision with others. When I first picked up a camera it was a satisfying fit. I loved the way I could see something with my eye, imagine how I wanted it to look as a photograph, and then use the camera to capture that image.
I got a degree in history and always thought I would follow in my family’s footsteps and wind up in academia but upon moving to NYC after college I discovered the possibilities of commercial photography. Right away I knew it was the perfect way to combine my love for visual storytelling with my curiosity and excitement about the world.
That was twenty years ago and since then I’ve been busy traveling and shooting and even made a move to Connecticut with my wife and two kids. We miss the bustle of the city but definitely enjoy the relative calm of gardening and chasing our chickens around the yard.

Everything from landscape to food, architecture, fashion is fair game though. Love getting the call, collaborating on the process and engaging with new subjects.

I am an experienced photographer, multimedia producer and photo editor. I have covered a wide array of national and international stories for more than twelve years. This work has ranged from breaking visual news coverage of the fall of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt during the Arab Spring to in-depth stories following Syrian migrants in Eastern Europe and labor trafficking stories in New York. As an international photographer, I have extensive experience collaborating with reporters and translators in developing and illustrating stories in logistically challenging environments. As both a photographer and photo editor, I have coordinated and directed assignments with freelancers and worked with reporting teams to cover major sporting and political events on deadline.

My commercial photography and video clients include Harvard Business School, Good Jobs Institute, Greentown Labs and Holland & Knight Law Firm.
I believe that photography is more than just a technical exercise, but a synthesis of vision, moment, and process that illustrates and amplifies something about the subject that is usually unseen. I grew up in Canada but now live in Western NY with my wife and kids. We love it here and a lot of my personal work focuses on the creatives and entrepreneurs who are busting their asses to make this Rust Belt city thrive again – and I’m grateful that I get to be a part of telling this story. I’m allergic to cats, penicillin, and boredom – being a photographer is a good cure for the last one because it lets me tell a different story every day. I create images for advertising agencies, magazines, and corporate clients across the US and Canada – I make quirky and dramatic portraits of makers and doers whose grit and sweat are changing the worlds of business, sport, art, social justice, food, and more.
