Balancing his signature cowboy aesthetic with a background in fashion, photographer and director Scott Slusher is just as comfortable shooting a Times Square beauty campaign as he is capturing the white-knucked action of the rodeo. The photographer and motion artist has a degree in fashion design from the Art Institute of Dallas and has been recognized by the Shorty Awards.
Scott’s father, a famous Oklahoma horse doctor, gave him his first film camera, which sparked a lifelong fascination with the rugged beauty of the West. Scott’s imagery tells the stories of grizzled motorcyclists, noble steers, sharp-eyed cowgirls and lifelong artisans. Despite always being in the center of the action, his imagery is less defined by adrenaline-fueled dramatic moments, but rather the controlled burn of a wider narrative.
Scott is based in Dallas, Texas and can usually be spotted by his trademark neckerchief.

Based in Beijing, China
English, French, Mandarin
Food photographer based in LA & HK via Paris and Beijing.
Before moving to France, all my journals were in Spanish. Family and friends find amusement in hearing me struggle in Italian and Portuguese. I should be able to communicate fluently in English, French, and Mandarin Chinese.
I communicate best in images. Second dearest language is food. I love to play with it. I love to light it. I love to style it. I love to eat it.
I love to travel on assignment. Anywhere.
I didn’t plan to be a photographer when I was a kid – I thought I’d be a veterinarian, an ad man on Madison Ave (hello, Don Draper!), or an astronaut. You know, the usual. But, I picked up a camera while in the army, and the rest, as they say, is history.
My photography resume is long and diverse – at different times, I have been a conflict, newspaper, sports, lifestyle, fashion, portrait, feature and food photographer. I have lived and worked in NYC, LA, Miami, DC, Phoenix, Harrisburg, PA, and for the last 11 years, Charlotte. All of these locations and experiences through my career have shaped my perspective.
I capture real moments, tell rich stories, and make people and products look great for brands, magazines and ad agencies. My work is real, relatable, honest and authentic. Whether everyday people or hired talent, I have a natural ability to make people comfortable in front of my lens. We have fun on my shoots, I don’t yell, and, on the best days, we eat NC BBQ.
I live with my wife and 3 rescue dogs on an acre within the Charlotte city limits that we bought (mostly) for the dogs. When not out shooting, you can usually find me working on personal projects, or exploring a new hobby, or fly fishing for anything that swims.
Some fun facts about me below – the rest you need to learn for yourself. So, let’s work together!
• I drink a LOT of iced tea and there will always be some on set
• I was a Paratrooper in the US Army and have over 75 jumps
• I have seen every episode of Law and Order (go head, challenge me!)
• I will travel almost anywhere, anytime to eat BBQ
• Every fish I catch is released alive to live another day
• I have counted over 25 species of birds at our yard feeders
• I hiked over 700 miles of the Appalachian Trail in one trip
I wish I could say I have tasted every dish I shot. People may not agree on politics, taxes or even the weather, but we surely drop our differences and come together over food. Time spent at the table with others is one of the best ways to get to know them. Photography is much the same.
Spending most of my fifteen year career as a magazine art director and photographer, I have worked with a wide variety of subjects from senators and beauty queens to chefs and turkeys. I enjoy the time with the personalities I photograph and the gratifying part is hearing their story and capturing the moment in time.
My work has been recognized in the creative industry’s leading publications: Art Director’s Club of New York Annual, the Communication Arts Design Annual, and SPOTS competition.
I often use older film cameras including an 11×14 ultra large format Burke & James, 8×10 and 4×5 pinhole cameras, and a beautiful Pentax 67. My recent favorite is a 1960’s era Polaroid Land camera converted into a 4×5 rangefinder. I live, work and play in Richmond, Virginia with my lovely and very understanding wife, two daughters and son.

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.
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.

It’s these things combined that allow for the creation of authentic, artistic and head-turning imagery.
I currently make St. Louis my home, where I live with my husband, Joe, and our cat, Claire. When not out and about with my camera, I spend much of my time working on my cooking skills and trying to make my own garden grow.

At Dean Lavenson Photography, Dean brings an utter passion to the set. He is a master with light and an absolute perfectionist. He is as giddy about photography today as when he was a student. And with that passion comes with over 25 years of experience. After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography and freelancing in L.A. for a few years, Dean relocated his family from Santa Barbara, California to Louisville in 1989. He’s still trying to figure out how that happened. All he remembers is a big yellow Ryder truck with a matching yellow ’73 VW Bug in tow and his wife, Dianne, crying across every state line. Dean still dreams about the beach, but over the years he’s grown to love Louisville. As for how Dean first got started with a camera? Now that’s a long story. Let’s just say, he was on his way to becoming the next Wynton Marsellis. Lucky for Mr. Marsellis, Dean ended up in Beginning Photography as a high school senior. Ask him in person and he’ll give you the looooong version.
