Chelsea Y


I’m a Hawaii-based creative and deeply curious human here practicing courage. I come from a small island in the Pacific and I’m still not quite sure how I got to live a life bigger than I ever dreamed of. For the last 3 years I’ve been hiking, diving, surfing, slacklining, and photographing my way through 53 countries and counting. I’m proud to be supported by some of my favorite brands like Canon USA, Adobe, and give preference to creating content for companies doing good.

Sam Johnson


My passion for photography was something that I also had when I was a child. I would find different ways to get a free version of Photoshop on my old Toshiba computer and edit all the random photos that I would take. As I moved into college, I let that passion grow distant. This is one of the biggest things I wish I could go back and reverse. I let it go because I was trying to fit a mold. Go to college, get a degree and start a career. That is what was preached to me. I didn’t see photography or digital creation as a career at the time.

Olivier Wong


I am Olivier Wong, a photographer specialized in landscape, urban and travel photography based in Paris, France. Born and raised in Reunion Island, I started photography when I settled in Paris in 2013 to work as an engineer. My passion for photography grew over the years as I wandered in the capital city and traveled around the world. Even if Paris is my main source of inspiration, discovering new places, immersing myself in local culture and capturing unique moments from my perspective have consistently fascinated me. My goal is to document my travels through my photographs as I think that every picture has a story to tell.

Jude Allen


I’m a travel and landscape photographer based out of San Francisco, California. I photograph people and products as well and would love to work with you. I guess you could say i’ve had a few obsessions in my lifetime. First it was skateboarding, then music and now photography. I’ve always been into artistic expression of some form, but it wasn’t until photography found me later in life did I realize my true passion.

From traveling, meeting other creative minds, overcoming challenges working with companies and brands to bring a vision to life, the possibilities and excitement are endless.  Follow me on my journey as I make my dreams become a reality and share it with the world.

Álvaro Herrero


My name is Álvaro Herrero and I was born in Spain. For as long as I can
remember, I´ve always had a fascination with nature in all of its forms. I was
barely five years old when my grandfather gave me a pair of fins, a mask and a
snorkel and since then, I have not separated from the sea.
I started experimenting with photography when I was eight years old using my
father´s old camera. When I was thirteen, my father gave me my first SLR
camera, a Nikon F70. From that moment, photography has not stopped being
my passion.

Two months later, car camping across 11 states, I ended up in Washington. What was supposed to be 3 months in Washington turned into 3 years. Washington will always have a piece of my heart, but my restless soul needed to move on to what was next.

I am a 24-year-old freelance photographer and videographer from Ontario, Canada. Ever since my first trip abroad, I have fallen in love with capturing emotions through my lens and experiencing different cultures around the world.
