For me, photography has always been about exploration. It’s about solving problems, whether it be creative or technical. It’s about learning new ways of seeing and being able to share that vision with the world.
My process is based on authenticity and creating comfortable environments where real interactions can happen. It’s about enjoyment, about seeing people enjoy what I make, and about learning which lens each project or client require me to look through.
I am a creative thinker with a blue collar work ethic. I work hard and expect those around me to do the same, but I make sure we’re all having fun. I am patient, flexible and understanding and I know how to tell stories that relate to real people.
Located in Pennsylvania. Working in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York, DC, Baltimore.
Available for assignment worldwide. I like to travel.
I’m a Los Angeles based portrait and lifestyle photographer living and working on both coasts. I love collaborating with people and being thrown into different situations.

Home base is currently the Eagle Rock neighborhood of North East LA where I live with my wife, daughter, large cat and Guinea Pig.

I grew up in the magnificent city of Saint Petersburg. My mother Emilia Shraga is a musician, and my father Vyacheslav Shraga was a painter. No wonder that the audio-visual side of things became two major areas of my interest. From my mother I inherited a musical ear and from my father — poetic and compassionate vision.
I started out as a photojournalist in Russia in 2008. I worked for several publishers and supplied large-scale social documentary and industrial photo projects. After moving in 2011 to Israel I began applying my journalistic skills to humanitarian photography, performing arts photography and documentary filmmaking.
My humanitarian photography serves as a call to action, urging a direct response from the audience. Fundraising campaign materials based on my photographs managed to attract millions of dollars in donations.

After a couple decades running my own shop and honing my craft as a commercial and editorial photographer, I’m still enamored with the language and allure of the medium. I’m known for my ability to put people at ease — even or especially when they don’t love having their picture taken.
A successful shoot is about more than great images; it’s about great customer service. It should be a fun, thorough, and satisfying experience for the client. I enjoy the thrill of overseeing production with a crew of thirty, but also never tire of the intimacy of a small shoot. Assignments have taken me across the country from Memphis to Raleigh to Virginia Beach to Los Angeles. I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of professional talent and real people – from the executive team of a global biotech firm, to presidential primary candidates, to unhoused teens aging out of foster care.
In 2019, I relocated from St. Louis to the Pacific Northwest, and now live in weird and magical Portland with my brilliant wife Jackie and our two boys, Jupiter and George.

I am based in Boulder, CO, but often on the road living and running out of my mini-van. I’ve driven to borders, both North and South. I’ve paddled from source to sea, and traveled coast to coast. I run high peaks and swim in valleys. I visit cities, deserts and people that I miss. I believe that it is between big canyon walls, in murky water, and on long narrow trails where strangers become the closest friends.
Combining my education in Integrated Marketing Communications with my creative eye and ear, I work with brands to tell meaningful stories in strategic ways.

I’m a filmmaker, a photographer, an author, a producer and an adventure junkie. I wear many hats within the creative industry and love getting called upon with new ideas and epic concepts. They all seem to overlap. They fill my passport with stamps and they tell real stories, which is what life is all about really; storytelling with different media, although film & photography will always lie at the heart of what I do.
Adventure plays a starring role in all my projects (work & play) and pretty much sums up how I do business. Always pushing the envelope, drawn down the road less travelled and throwing a shit load of energy into all that I do. A good adventurer needs these, as does anyone wishing to create iconic content that makes an impact.
I’m a conversation partner for both international lifestyle brands and agencies, helping them to create content that’s real. Producing media that an audience can relate to and stirs up their lives. I love seeing how my work on athletes has got people off the couch and made real, positive changes in their lives.

I’m a commercial / advertising and editorial photographer specializing in food, farm & agriculture imagery. Or more simply, I capture images of people, what they eat and how it gets from the pasture to the plate.
Clients and collaborators find me to be creative, flexible, efficient and results oriented. I am down-to-earth; passionate and far from perfect. I don’t take myself too seriously and I firmly believe being on set should be fun. I value my crew as much as my clients. It’s these things combined that allow for the creation of authentic, artistic and head-turning imagery.
True story: My mom was always supportive of my career. She was so excited to see my work in her newspaper. She carried a copy in her purse as a prized possession, sharing it with everyone she met (whether interested or not). Her pride and passion continue to inspire me today.
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.
I am available for advertising agency, brand, corporate or editorial shoots worldwide.
I see pictures everywhere I go. And that’s what makes life so interesting."
After college, I was hired as a staff photography assistant. I learned so much assisting other photographers those first few years, and later as a retail product photographer. I quickly realized I loved the pace of photographing people. I began to show my book around, and started getting commercial assignments. I specialize in lifestyle and portrait photography as well as directing motion. I make polished, authentic pictures that viewers relate to. I like shooting people, and I like collaborating with my subjects and other creative minds. No matter who it is or what it’s for, I find a person’s essence…through his or her environment, an expression or attitude, or anything else I see. I help set the tone to get the right image…whether that’s speaking up or shutting up. Many variables affect the outcome of a photograph; my job is to help shape them. "Generations after me will be able to see exactly what I saw. I like knowing that." Today, I’m still keen on learning new things about my craft…whether that’s video, audio or new gear. I still lug around the same camera bag I won at a photography workshop 26 years ago. I live in St. Paul, Minnesota with my wife and three children.
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
