Perry Gallagher

I purchased my first camera after clipping 6 box tops from cereal boxes and getting my dad to supply the $5. I was in 3rd grade. My first subject was an 8th-grade girl with blonde hair and blue eyes that always greeted me eagerly with a big bright smile when she would say “come sit with me, Perry!!”. Read More>>

Karen Chen

I’ve always had a passion for picture and art making but I didn’t think I could do that as a career until I first picked up a camera in my junior year at UCLA. Once I realized that I wanted to pursue photography, I graduated early and went straight into getting work experience. I’ve always believed that the best way to learn (especially in photography) is to just throw yourself into the fire. It’s the best way to learn. Read More>>

I’ve always been around cameras. My Dad was a hobbyist photographer who took pictures of our rather huge extended family. He had a darkroom for developing black & white prints, so I learned all of the background and fundamentals at a very early age. Read More>>

Water has always been a part of my life. I learned to swim at a young age, overcoming an irrational fear of the water, adapting it into my daily life as a competitive swimmer. The water feels like a natural play for me to play and create and it expands my creative limits to practically endless bounds. Read More>>

As a former Police Officer, who always was pulled toward creative hobbies and passions, I saved up and bought my first camera.

Nogen Beck

I think traditionally this section is filled with life’s stepping stones like degrees, accolades, influences…a brief impersonal depiction of the road a photographer took to arrive where he or she is today. Part of me wants to take part in these pleasantries. The better part wants to push the reader right into something more personal and meaningful. Something beautiful and true. Read More>>

Brandon Showers

I was born and raised on a farm in Ohio. The arts were not something that most people pursued as opposed to working on the farm or in a factory. My parents though were never discouraging about anything that I wanted to pursue. As a kid I was very much into drawing, comic books, model making, playing guitar, movies, monsters, and dabbling in photo and video with anything I could find. Read More>>

I have always been interested in Art and Photography – I started shooting Models and head shots about 10 years ago .
