Alissa Beth Rosenberg - Alissa Beth Photography
Alissa Rosenberg is a diverse and creative photographer from Long Island, New York, who picked up her first bridge camera to take photographs during a family vacation to Italy and has never turned back. Alissa has focused on capturing a moment whether it is in a vivid landscape, waterscape, and architecture or portrait photography. Alissa is a published artist who has been selected to participate in numerous juried gallery exhibits around NY, winning a variety of awards and honors of recognition. Alissa’s signature photographs are her collection of Unique Macro Water Drops, for which she was recently awarded a Certificate of Recognition by Lillian Tone, Curator at MOMA. Additionally, at the end of 2016, Alissa was awarded 3rd place in the prestigious International Photography Awards (IPA) category of Lifestyles/People for her series Perfectly Imperfect/Augmented Reality. Artist’s Statement: “Youth is wasted on the young.” No one understands this statement better than someone who has moved beyond the years where they would be considered “young; an ever changing definition that is relative to the one that is reading the statement. I truly did not grow up thinking that I was an artist. I walked through life gathering experiences but not always seeing and appreciating the world around me. Now, during my midlife journey as a photographer I have gone back to looking at the world with a child’s eye. My photographs are inspired by light as I have never seen it before; full of shadows and color and tone that allow me to paint an image or capture an emotion. Alissa’s work has been featured in New York Newsday, Long Island Travel Guide, Newsday Fun Book, Shutterbug Magazine, the New York Daily News and the Long Island Travel Bureau Tourism Brochure. She has also had several solo gallery and group gallery showings in New York and around the country.

Cecil Holmes - Cecil Holmes Photography
I am a widely published, self taught outdoor photographer and workshop instructor based in North Alabama. My passion for nature and fine art drive my quest to capture the moods, characters and spirits of some wonderful and amazing locations. I think photography says as much about the photographer as it does the photograph, so I strive to show you a little about myself and my view of the world in each image I share. Some of my published credits and clients include Nature Photographer, American Alpine Club Library and Tamron Lenses. I teach small, field based workshops and also offer classroom based instruction near my home. I come from an IT background and my teaching methods reflect getting a fabulous image at the point of capture and enhancing that in the digital darkroom.

“There is a point where the veil opens and an intuitive sense of what is being photographed reveals something authentic and beautiful. It may only last for an instant. I want to capture that magical moment and show it to the world, because it may never reveal itself again.” – Craig Varjabedian Craig Varjabedian’s memory of the day that inspired his passion for photography is as clear as the glacial waters of Lake Louise in his native Canada. Craig was seven years old and in awe of the majestic landscape around him. His mother encouraged him to peer into the viewfinder of the family’s Kodak camera for the first time and release the shutter. In that instant, he discovered the wonder of capturing a moment in time. Later lured by the enigmatic vistas and people of the American West, Craig made Santa Fe, New Mexico, his home and found the artistic voice that is the hallmark of his fine art photography. Craig’s passion is creating art that explores and expresses the truth of his experiences in intimate portraits and luminous landscapes. His luminous photographs reflect his heart-felt connection to authenticity and beauty; the photographer uses the depths of black & white and the nuances of color to move viewers beyond the realm of simple print on paper. For over forty years, his devotion to making photographs and producing meticulously hand-crafted prints is evident in each image he makes. The results are images only a master in love with his art can divine. Ten books have been published on Craig Varjabedian’s photographic work, including En Divina Luz: The Penitente Moradas of New Mexico, Four & Twenty Photographs: Stories from Behind the Lens, Ghost Ranch and the Faraway Nearby and Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait. His upcoming book Into the Great White Sands celebrates the beauty of White Sands National Monument, will be published by the University of New Mexico Press in Spring 2018.

Falcon - The House of NyghtFalcon
Known simply as Falcon, his images convey uniqueness and power. And his philosophy and passion drive his work. “I believe in the ability of a single image, still or motion, to show us not only how the world is now, but how it can be. Each and every image we create can and will fundamentally change the way we see the world. And so it is that we call everyone who sees our work to envision that world with us.” Falcon’s images beckon you to “See the World Again. For the First Time.” The House of NyghtFalcon Falcon and his team’s proprietary lighting methodology allows them to create emotionally powerful images without the constraints of studio work. In addition to still and motion imaging, their consultative services include brand awareness analysis, brand consistency development, digital marketing and so much more. “Although our core services remain still and motion imaging, everything we now do is centered around capturing, creating and conveying emotions.” “Our responsibility as photographers,” states Falcon, “is to free our clients - and their clients - to experience even the most ordinary object or image as an extraordinary emotional experience. Emotion is the ultimate competitive edge.” Founded January, 2003, the team quickly garnered international acclaim for its work. If a thousand photographs were on a table, and only one was a NyghtFalcon, that still image would be clearly and easily recognizable. Falcon’s hallmark style – the vibrant colors, rich texture, intensity of detail, emotional impact and unique artistic vision – clearly distinguishes the work from that of other photographers.
