Andrew Hefter is a twentysomething who began photographing in 2005. He's currently pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Graphic Design at Savannah College of Art and Design on scholarship. With a wide range of photographic interests, the idea of a photo about mystery (in the manner of Magritte) remains a core component of Andrew's portrait and conceptual work; the content is meaningless save for its creation.

Rikki Ward Photography
Rikki's relationship with photography was born out of a compulsive desire to "keep" the people and places that came into her life. She was a kid who moved around a lot during her early years, thus coming to expect that she might not ever see a person or place that was part of her life again.
The result is some amazing work by a talented photographer.

After his mother Pat died in 2009, Rory realized how important his documentation of her was.

Urban Photography by Brad Evans
Citysnaps is my photo blog. It’s about street photography; a very loose and informal documentary style about people in urban environments; capturing the energy and rhythm of the street.
I’m out shooting a lot. Usually solo, but many times shooting with friends as well.
I’ve met a lot of interesting people over the six or so years I’ve been snapping street pix. All are friendly and have a story to tell. Occasionally, I’ll focus on an individual and share some details of their activities and life. And from time to time share stories of some of my encounters on the street.
Most of my street pix are taken in San Francisco, a great city to shoot in. Outside of NYC, there’s no better place for street pix.
Whether she’s documenting the plight of child scavengers in a Cambodian garbage dump, recording upscale weddings in California, or teaching photography classes in San Francisco, Vasna Wilson’s work is all about human connection. ‘You go to places that most people don’t see for themselves,’ she says. ‘You tell the story, explore the human condition, and let people decide. But my hope is always that somewhere along the line, people will see an image that connects to their lives, that makes them feel better about themselves and less alone.’
William Beem Photography
I started photography in the late 70′s as a high school student using an Olympus OM-10. I put it down as personal computers started appearing and my interests changed. My hobby & obsession with technology turned into a career in engineering. I renewed my interest in photography in 2003 on an Alaskan Cruise. I think the moment that changed my direction was on an excursion through Misty Fjords where I only brought the digital camera and kept missing shots of whales who submerged by the time the shutter got around to clicking. What I needed was a blend of my SLR and digital convenience.
