My name is Mikko Lagerstedt; I’m a self-taught fine art photographer from Finland. I am drawn into night- and atmospheric photography and I love to capture simplistic Finnish landscapes. My photography journey first started in December 2008 and from the first moments; I fell in love with it. I like to create visually, and emotionally captivating pictures and my goal is to capture the feeling I had when I took the photograph.
I am Jacob Edmiston.Right now i am an 18 year old amateur photographer. I am still trying to learn more techniques of photography and improve my editing skills. I discovered that i liked the hobby of photography in 2008. I love to take pictures of nature! I really like flowers and landscapes. (Unfortunately where I live there are no amazing landscapes, just cornfields.)

Upon moving to California in the 1970s I was walking in the shadow of the Range of Light, in the footsteps of John Muir and Ansel Adams. I took up backpacking and 35mm photography in 1974. My exploration of natural environments continues, today as a freelance photographer who conducts photography workshops in some of America’s most exotic landscapes. I’m currently researching and writing a travel guide to the best landscape photography locations in California. Jeff Sullivan
Craig Taylor’s fantastic macro photographs transport us into the world of insects showing us every hair, tiny pieces of pollen, water drops, dozens of eyeballs, and all sorts of other detail that we can’t see with the naked eye.
Jonathan Kos-Read (born 1973), also known as Cao Cao, is an American actor in film and television in China. While well known in China, his work is little-known in his native country. “I shoot actresses and actors on our sets. Between films, to relax, I shoot friends, models and street photography. I never shoot for money. Acting is an artistic job. I betray it for a paycheck. So I keep this part of my artistic life pure. I know not everybody has that luxury so if you need money, I pay.” (via modelmayhem)Jonathan Kos-Read
Alexander Semenov is the head of the scientific divers team at the White Sea Biological Station (WSBS) in Russia. He’s also a prolific undersea photographer that has graciously shared his incredible work online on countless sites (Flickr, Behance, LiveJournal, 500px) so others may study and marvel at the beauty of the underwater world. Graduating from Lomonosov’s Moscow State University in the department of Zoology, Alexander specialized in the study of invertebrate animals. While his career has led him around the world, many of the shots in his portfolio are from his work at the WSBS which is located near the Polar Circle on the coast of Kandalaksha Bay of the White Sea.
