Vincent Laforet

There are so many superlatives to Vincent Laforet’s career, that it’s hard to list them all without sounding sycophantic. After a Pulitzer Prize winning career as a news photographer, Vincent singlehandedly launched the DSLR Cinema revolution with his short film “Reverie”. That film was the spark that ignited an entire industry, as tens of thousands of aspiring filmmakers began making cinematic quality images with relatively affordable gear.

While everyone was trying to catch up to Reverie, Vincent had already become one of the most in-demand commercial directors, with a client list that is the who’s who of advertising. And then, as if to prove that he hadn’t wandered too far from his photographic roots, Vincent released a fine-art project called AIR featuring mesmerizing high-altitude nighttime photography. The project was a huge success with a gallery opening and a 228 page coffee table book.

Mark Handy

Mark’s landscape photography covers a variety of styles, from hyper-realism to pure abstraction, but it all shares a common fingerprint that is Mark Handy. His vibrant colors weave a tale of the majesty and romance of the natural world. Mark’s large prints are coveted by collectors, and yet he only produces editions of 1. Meaning that each piece of art is as individual as an original oil painting. Indeed, as original as the artist himself.

Vassilis Tangoulis

Art isn’t really quantifiable. There’s no “best” in art. But you could argue that there are a few artist in the world whose work is so progressive that their work is superior to others. Meet Vassilis Tangoulis. There are probably four or five people on the planet capable of producing long exposure fine-art photography at his level. Vassilis transforms raw nature into dreamy scenes filled with fluidity, serenity, and wonder. Vassilis shows us the trajectory of where we’re going with digital photography. And while we heap praise upon his work, when asked directly about it Vassilis replied humbly “Each of us has the blessing of having a unique style concerning processing and thematology...”

Bart Heirweg

Bart’s images create a zen-like communion between nature and the viewer. There’s an ease and tranquility reminiscent of the great impressionist master Claude Monet. And yet, unlike impressionism, Bart’s images have a very tangible realism, as if you the viewer are truly there in that moment.

Kevin Holliday

Kevin is a force majeure in the world of long-exposure fine-art photography. Beyond his eye for composition (which is impeccable), and beyond his talent for using long-exposure techniques to achieve his visualization (which is also impeccable), Kevin is truly focused on delivering fine art. Printed. Gorgeous. Hanged. Fine Art. And that is something we hold in very high esteem.
