Rossella Vanon is a photographer based in London and who recently caught our eye when she was featured on the Profoto Blog. Ms. Vanon is an editorial photographer that has worked with some very amazing clients. Her work is beautiful and reminds us a lot of something that Annie Leibovitz might create or shoot. Her recent work for Nylon Mexico yielded the Pale Grace photo that we see above.

And here’s Rossella’s story about the image.

When we ran into the work of Chris Aust on 500px, we were intrigued and wanted to venture further into more of his portfolio. Aust is part of the growing number of photographers that are ditching the DSLR and sticking with mirrorless cameras, their creative vision, and lighting knowledge to create the best photos that he can. The 28 year old Ohio based photographer has shot fashion and portraits with a tendency to usually contrast with urban decay.

His Stormy Beach photo and the story behind it is a lesson in blending natural light with flash for all those that really wish to become a better strobist.

Here’s his story.

Dan DeArco is a photographer based in California and describes himself as a commercial dance/action photographer. He got into doing this type of work because he was a dancer and acrobat himself. He uses knowledge of the human body and creative ideas to create the photos that he does. Upon finding some of his work on 500px, we were intrigued by his Acrobatic Temper image. Dan’s image uses a method called Stroboscopic flash in order to get all of this into one image.

Here’s his story.

Sander Martijn is a fashion photographer based in NYC, and also a former Phoblographer staffer. Sander’s style of lighting is extremely by the book but when combined with his creative vision works out quite well for the images that he produces. Late last year, he photographed something that many photographer find incredibly difficult: jewelry. Additionally, the jewelry was photographed on a model.

Here’s how he got the photo that worked perfectly for the magazine he shot it for.

Alexia Sinclair is a photographer and artist that hails from Australia. When we heard about her work on the Profoto blog, our jaws dropped. Alexia worked on a series called “A Frozen Tale” that took place in an old European Castle. The series turned into an extremely complicated production that involved quite literally chasing the sunlight from room to room on top of story boarding, makeup, and lots of post-production.

Here’s her story.

Jenna Martin is photographer that hails from Montana. She began shooting conceptual photography back in 2012 and has since built a portfolio of work that is conceived in her imagination and brought to life by props and her camera. This type of photography is usually amongst some of the most elaborate as it requires a creative and imaginative idea to begin with but also sometimes needs the perfect lighting and the perfect post-production. When we saw her photograph of a cabbage dress, we were extremely interested to see how it was done.
