Richard's passion for honesty and meaningful story continues to evolve as he drives himself to capture his signature stark and revealing portraits, as well as through the film works he produces. He quotes, "If it does not come from a place of honest emotion, whether real or created, it will have no life."
When Richard is not behind a camera or keeping everyone in stitches (or tears) with one of his stories, you will most likely find him spending time with his family or biking the hills surrounding Los Angeles.
Jonathan Kozowyk is a commercial advertising and editorial photographer formally trained at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. After graduation, Jonathan set out to pursue his
passion of photography by apprenticing numerous photographers who were already established in the advertising and editorial industry. After a few years assisting, he began to land jobs of his own. In 2010, Jonathan relocated to New York City where he currently is based.
Today Jonathan is lucky to travel often for commissions all over the country. He enjoys collaborating with creatives to capture genuine moments both big and small. He finds inspiration in everything around him, from the people he photographs to the places he travels.
In his down time he likes to surf, ride his skateboard, look at maps, and spend time with his beautiful girlfriend and his furry dog.
Authenticity - Real, genuine, true and accurate. The Midwest is full of it; authentic brands, authentic values, and most importantly, authentic people. John Sibilski is just that - Authentic.
John grew up in the Milwaukee area as the son of art director. His father passed down two important traits - his work ethic, and his innate ability to pick out, and appreciate the simple things. John attended Milwaukee Trade and Technical High School. While searching for his direction John developed an early awareness of and a respect for "the moment." That authentic, and real sliver of time, where a glimmer of the person being photographed shines through.
John's goal is, and always has been, to create honest and genuine images that tell a story. In a digital world where images and media bombard the public from all angles, John's goal stays constant --- to have genuine moments unfold in front of his camera, and capture authenticity.

A term that Dominique Malaterre often hears used to describe her work is sophisticated. I try to take photographs that have an impact – that offer images that last, she notes. If they are called sophisticated, I suppose that is fine. A native of France, Malaterre graduated from the University of Montreal with a degree in Art History. She spent time in the art world and as a photographer's assistant before opening her own studio, Tilt, in Montreal. Since then, she has won more than 160 awards, including twice being named Quebec Photographer of the Year. She has also been nominated as Woman of the Year in Communications in Quebec. In addition, Malaterre was featured in the PBS television series The Creators, along with other outstanding women artists such as Margaret Atwood.

George loves bringing the strengths of others to the surface, and he believes a leader simply polishes shiny things for a living.
