Paul Gero is a photographer and author and has been a working professional for over 33 years.

He is the author of the best-selling book “Mastering Digital Wedding Photography” and has also published “The Kids of Ladera Ranch” (2008) and “The Kids of Orange Country” (since 2009), a charity fund-raising photographic book project that has raised over $60,000 for Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

He is a Sony Artisan of Imagery (sponsored by Sony) and speaks and writes frequently on the use of Sony mirrorless cameras and making the transition from DSLR cameras to mirrorless cameras.

He has been a wedding and portrait photographer since 2002. Prior to that he spent 19 years in daily journalism and staff photographer positions for The Chicago Tribune (in Chicago and in the paper’s Washington, D.C. bureau), and The Arizona Republic in Phoenix. In addition, he has been widely published in magazines such as Time, People, US News & World Report, Newsweek, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated.

When he’s not photographing families and children, you can find him cheering on his kids Kate and Sparky at their soccer and baseball games. They might just be the most photographed kids in the entire country!

He and his wife Nick reside in Ladera Ranch. California, about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Nicki is originally from South Africa and she and Paul met at a mutual friends’ wedding in 2000. They were married a year later.

Sven Markus Victor initial career path was that as a doctor. Though he had an interest in photography, he succumbed to familiar and cultural pressure to study medicine. But at some point, he realized it could only be a career in photography that would bring him happiness and fulfillment. So, he’s made the choice to replace the stethoscope with a camera.

Part of that transition has involved a recent collaboration with US-based photographer Riley Draper. They journeyed to Greece to document the fate of tens of thousands of refugees, largely from war-torn Syria. Situated in these make-shift camps in the small town of Idomeni, these men, women and children struggle to survive as Western counties debate what’s to be done with them. All this is happening in the midst of economic crisis in Greece, growing xenophobia and fears of terrorism.

Victor and Draper’s work attempt to put a face a people that are often looked upon as some amorphous mass. His work, and the work of photographer and reporters like him, hope to humanize a crisis that shows no sign of diminishing or going away.

Photojournalist Michael Forster Rothbart’s work explores the human impact of environmental change. His projects have taken him to Bhopal, India, the Semey Polygon nuclear testing site in Kazakhstan oilfields in Azerbajian, and the Canadian, Arctic. A Fulbright Fellowship enabled him to spend two years in Chernobyl, photographing and interviewing those who remain a generation after the 1986 accident. He lived in Sukachi, Ukraine a small farming village just outside of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

Rothbart recently started a new project, Fracking Pennsylvania, documenting the effects of natural gas drilling on rural communities. Previously he was a staff photographer for the University of Wisconsin and an Associated Press photographer in Central Asia. He now lives in upstate New York and photographs for magazines, newspapers and educational institutions.
