Romanian/Romani transplant living in constant fear of eastern european accents since August ’12.
After graduating the most prestigious accounting school in Romania I single-handedly bankrupt the entire country. It only took me two years and it’s my greatest achievement to date.
Shortly after, I got kicked out and sailed for the only place a reject like me could find fame and fortune – New York. I settled on the outskirts of Manhattan (which is now known as BK) where I am currently thriving in a community of Russian bears.
Quick Update: I’m in West Village now with all the cool kids.
Recently I started planning for world domination and contemplating birthing my own religion.
I mainly use photography as means to contact the spirit world. So far results have been inconclusive. More research is needed…

Born in Dallas, TX, I retain the Southern charm and politeness which eases the minds of models and my team on set. My interest in photography began when film photography was king. Following a year at GA Tech for Computer Engineering and several more years finding myself, I returned to school for Fashion Photography in Chicago. There, I honed my skills, fell in love with digital photography, and learned to shoot with purpose.
Since moving to NYC, I have continued to experiment and grow as an artist. I love to tell visual stories through my unique perspective. My aesthetic leans towards polished and stylized. I have a mastery of natural and artificial light as well as an ability to transform a space into a place not fully recognizable.
I also learned the role of Digital Tech in the fast-paced world of e-commerce. Tasks included building shot lists, camera & computer support, backups with Chronosync, and processing of files.
My ideal job is to photograph fashion and beauty campaigns for trendy and upscale brands; using my skills to benefit brands by elevating their aesthetic, creating timeless and artistic moments.
Outside of photography, I am passionate about good food, stimulating conversation, great television, and modern art. I have also been told I excel at dad jokes and terrible, terrible puns.
I love creating narratives through photographs — about people, moments, businesses, the creative process — everything really. There's always a story.
My focus is fashion, portrait, and lifestyle photography. My personal work has focused on street photography. I love the hunt for the moment, the delight of the unexpected, and the tableau of the everyday.
I'm a self-taught photographer and former lawyer. I've also freelanced as a writer for several New York newspapers.
I live in New York City with my husband and two daughters.

Polished work – with a raw, documentary-style appeal.
With a refined photojournalistic style and an eye for timeless moments, it's a desire to tell stories and connect that drives him.
Since my early years working as a photojournalist, I’ve believed in the storytelling power of photography. My images connect as well as communicate. I’m all about fostering an authentic connection: between me and my subject, and between the viewer and the image.
Supporting my clients and their brands while telling unique visual stories of diverse bodies, ethnicities, genders and ages, in beautiful settings is the work I’m honored to do. I specialize in creating original and eye-catching fashion lifestyle imagery – the kinds of images that make you pause for a moment and appreciate. With a deep knowledge and connection to the wool industry, knitting and the fiber arts, I photograph people and products all the way from sheep farms to dye studios to fashion models in knits.
Photography has given me an outlet and an amazing life. I find light and life in building and creating photos, moments, and memories. Over the years I have had the privilege to shoot campaigns for countless brands and companies. A few of my clients have included: Office of Angela Scott / Kate Spade / Karl Lagerfeld / Micheal Kors / DKNY / Armani / Diesel / Puma / Relic / Anodyne / Fossil / Misfit / Dillards / Adidas / JeanShop / JC Penney / Watch Station / Howard Hughes / Zodiac / The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders / Yoga Magazine / Western Lifestyle Retailer and many other companies, magazines, organizations, and individuals.

Cathlin is a Photographer and Director based in Austin, Texas who loves photographing people, and you get the sense that her portraits are challenging you with an achingly beautiful question about life you can’t put into words. (Either that or they’re playing up something funny!) She’s inspired by shadows and light, that kinetic energy you can feel on your skin, and a sentimental longing that connects us all. Cathlin is a mama to two children who are often depicted in her photographs.
Cathlin takes the photographs that don’t look staged. The in-between moments. The funny inside jokes. The commercial photography that doesn’t look over-produced and over-lit. Her sweet spot comes from observing how people naturally act and move, and directing them to “do more of that”.
She grew up on a lake in Iowa, and her adventure heart never quit those big open skies, which is how she ended up in Texas. Cathlin came to UT for grad school and fell in love with Texas. It felt like home. Since she lived in Austin in the 90s, she considers herself an honorary Texan.
She enjoys surfing whenever possible, which is almost never (land-locked in Texas). Her friends call her brave and scrappy, and her work weird. She thinks they should get out more.
Nathan Sokul is a photographer and artist based in Texas. He specializes in portrait and still life photography. Nathan enjoys combining a traditional photography approach with contemporary techniques to create a vibrant and surreal feel to his images.

From a young age I've always had a fascination with creating my own fantasy worlds. As I developed, these fantasy worlds became influenced by pop culture, heavy doses of time spent in nature and the world of fashion. It's easy to see how these have influenced my work today.
I started out with an educational background and early career in graphic design and marketing. I soon moved into the world of photography after using hobbyist photography skills developing line sheets and marketing imagery at the companies I worked for. Before too long, I built up a solid portfolio and made the leap to work for myself doing photography full-time.
I like to tell stories with my imagery. I’ve had people say my work invokes some feeling that’s hard to pinpoint – some sweet spot between emotion, sublime, surreal and sensual.
While my physical studio is based in San Diego, CA, I work all over Southern California and frequently take projects on the road for destination photoshoots.
