Jeffrey Lamont Brown - Creating Something From Nothing

Jeffrey Lamont Brown never attended any photography school nor did he study with masters of the medium, but that hasn't stopped him from building a successful career

Jeffrey Lamont Brown - Creating Something From Nothing

The French existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre described the state of authenticity as the ultimate consummation of freedom, as drawing your purpose for being out of nothingness and creating something free from the bonds that restrain you to your past. If this is the case, Sartre would describe Jeffrey Lamont Brown's career as a tour de force of authenticity. An engineer with no prior knowledge of the photography industry, Brown plunged into photography authentically, yearning to connect with people and portray their stories on film. Void of expectation, he opened an exciting and wide aperture to his future.

Patrick Hoelck - Film Noir

Patrick Hoelck's distinctively dark style casts today's brightest stars in a new light

Patrick Hoelck - Film Noir

In the 1940s and '50s, during Hollywood's golden age of film noir, darkness ruled the silver screen. Actors' faces were often masked in shadow with highlights placed precisely for maximum dramatic effect. Los Angeles photographer Patrick Hoelck puts a modern twist on this classic approach, photographing today's biggest stars in his own unique world of shadow and light.

Max Morse - Making Pictures

Although just beginning his professional career, Max Morse is already landing big jobs and in the process building an impressive portfolio of work

Max Morse - Making Pictures

At a small bar in the Southern California beach town of Manhattan Beach, I met up with Max Morse to talk about photography, images and plans for the future. Morse greets me with a quick wave, taking off a pair of white sunglasses and casually tossing them on the table. We shake hands and he ushers me to a seat and a cold pitcher of beer.

Zena Holloway - Beneath The Surface

David Julian - A Different Light

Drawing from multiple disciplines and deep imagination, David Julian's reality is in the eye of the beholder

David Julian - A Different Light

Don't try to classify David Julian. In a business environment where most pros find success by specializing in a particular photographic niche, Julian won't fit neatly into a clearly labeled box. Part illustrator, part sculptor and part philosopher, he's a self-described mad scientist. His three-dimensional assemblage and photo illustrations transport you via ghost train to a dusty shelf in a pre-modern laboratory lined with artifacts and arcana, where you might expect to find him toiling over the dissection of some long-extinct winged mammal.
