This is a shot from last ski season during a shoot that I did with my friend TJ David. I had never done a ski shoot before and everything was trial and error for me, but after a few days out (this being the third), we started getting some great results.
Me: Self-taught photographer and I tend to shoot anything that comes my way. From fashion to action and everything in-between. I love getting new challenges and figuring out how to work different situations. You can find my work at www.zachluchsphotography.com. I mostly work out of Aspen, CO and Grand Rapids, MI but tend to move around the US quite a bit.

Based out of Rochester, Ny
Born and raised in Rochester, NY...Graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Visual Communications.
Over the past 20 years I had the privilege of working at a local ad agency, with some of the top commercial photographers. I believed that variety is in fact, the spice of life, as my work encompassed a wide range of design disciplines from illustration and photography to corporate identity and publication design. As creative director we began a local greeting card company, designing and producing hundreds of successful greeting cards that had national distribution.
But at the same time I realized 4 years ago there still was another chapter in my life needing to unfold, thus... "Deb McGwin Photo and Design" evolved! I am now a self taught portrait photographer who specializes in people. Fun people. Unique people. Beautiful people. Everything from newborns to high school seniors to families. I pride myself in the fact that I not only create beautiful images but I strive to capture their souls.
Photography is an extension of my perspective on life. I see moments and I capture them – it's as simple as that. I strive to keep it real... I let the moments play and just record them as they happen.
They say that life comes down to a few great moments...and as a portrait photographer these are events that people cherish for many years to come and I am blessed to be able to capture those moments for my clients.
This image was shot with my canon mark 5Diii at the George Eastman House in Rochester. The autumn leaves created a gorgeous backdrop - perfect for capturing this lovely girl as she celebrates a milestone in her life, the changing of the leaves truly reflect the stages of life and the wondrous journey that lies ahead.

I'm a recent Portuguese amateur street photographer going to the streets of Lisbon looking for the decisive moments, mainly humorous or ironic.
Being a chemical engineer and consultant on the field of water treatment, I have photography as a hobby for a long time and I normally was focused on shooting macro and landscapes with my EOS 7D, heavy lens (Sigma EX 17-50mmm) and heavy tripod. During that period I got some recognition on some posting sites and Portuguese photo magazines, but I never was totally satisfied or engaged with "my" hobby.
I discovered street photography in the beginning of 2012 and since May, after I made a street photo workshop in Lisbon centre and brought my light and versatile Fujifilm X10, I never stopped shooting and I usually be able to produced and post a rewarding street shoot every day. On my view the main advantages of street photography is that if you feel on the right mod to start shooting and have the luck of living on a busy place like Lisbon you only need to go out and making it happen. You always have amazing characters, scenes, places at you disposable if you make use of some clever techniques, and more important, train your eye a make time available to be focus and engaged with the so much that is always surround you.
My main inspirations are Rui Palha (http://ruipalha.fineart-portugal.com) and Thomas Leuthard (http://500px.com/85mm). The first because most of his photos are made in Lisbon (my own city) and because most of his photos are really masterpieces where street photography meets fine art, and the second because of his amazing gift to "collecting" souls with his street portraits, cool street scenes and, of course, his fantastic e-books that were to me an enormous source of inspiration and street techniques.
Has I first said, my photos try to capture street scenes that catch my eye and hopefully the eye and attention of my viewers, being most of the time humorous scenes, ironic or about interesting characters on their living environment.
Recently I engaged a project that I named "Mr." Series, in which I normally use a low PoV and close subject distance to try to catch and read his/her toughs and interpret his/her behaviour. Based on my interpretation I give a name to the Mr. ;)

I am a fine art and documentary photographer, and I'm currently at a stage in my personal development where I'm trying to combine the two elements into a single art form. This image is an example of this where shape, form and shades create just as much of the image as the actual content. Whilst a large amount documentary and street photography these days focuses purely on realism and the content of the images, I personally feel that there is still room for artistic merit and aesthetic value. This particular image uses the dark shades of the old buildings as a frame around the new illuminated building 'The Shard'. I also included the silhouette of the tree as a frame over the top of the image as a juxtaposition of nature over the modern architecture.
