After several years as a patent attorney, Mai craved beautiful things outside, so she became a photographer specializing in landscapes and stories. She’s finding, after wearing hats as a mechanical engineer, a software engineer and a lawyer, that growing a photography career makes use of them all.
Hannele is a Virginia-based photographer creating images of animals and the natural world for campaigns and collections. Her work has been exhibited and published nationally and a selection of her photographs are represented by National Geographic Creative.
Rick has been obsessed with making pictures since childhood. Family pictures, daily visual doodles, art on the walls, images for clients: it’s how he makes sense of the world.
In 2010, Erika graduated from the Corcoran College of Art + Design with a BFA in Photojournalism. After moving to Hyattsville, MD and joining the local preservation society, Erika began a personal project documenting her changing town. Shot entirely on black & white film, her photos represent elements of Hyattsville’s past, present, and future. The project has been shot, processed and printed in Hyattsville.
Prakash’s dual intrigue with architecture and photography started in architecture school but did not coalesce until much later. After working as an architect for almost ten years, he found himself spending increasingly more time behind the camera. For the past twenty years he has been photographing architecture. His unique vision is sustained by continued inquiry into the realm of design and ideas.
