Christian Pondella

One of the elements that makes Christian's work truly distinctive in a competitive field is his ability to get up close, personal, and often way, way out there with his subjects. An extreme athlete in his own right, he is always a fundamental part of the team on whatever adventure he's shooting—including having to move faster and carry significantly more weight than anyone else—giving him a unique and intimate perspective at the cutting edge of human endeavor.

Elizabeth Gadd

First picking up a camera in 2005 at the age of 12, she began creating photographs involving nature and landscapes, eventually leading to the whimsical combination of landscapes with human portraiture (usually self-portraits) that she's known for today.

Shannon Stapleton

For the last 13 years I've been a staff photographer for Reuters News Pictures based in New York City. In my career I've covered the tragic events of 9-11, Hurricane Katrina, the Earthquake and several elections in Haiti, have traveled to Pakistan to cover the earthquake in the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, the war in Lebanon, several of the mass shootings that have tragically occurred throughout the United States and have traveled and covered several presidential candidates throughout the years as well as Democratic and Republican conventions. When not covering such events I cover daily events in NYC ranging from fashion week, court appearances of several high profile subjects, features and portraits. When not working I enjoy my wife and two kids and live in Port Washington, New York.

Photojournalism is my passion and I still feel a photograph is worth a thousand words.
