After ten years as a professional portrait photographer on the Treasure Coast, she and her family traveled to Nicaragua as missionary photographers.

JANE SAULL

Please take a thought provoking journey into the Underwater Realm and gain an increased awareness of our precious natural resources. “Underwater photography allows me the opportunity to educate and thus protect our most valuable resource, the oceans of the world. My artistic mission is to present and reflect on the diverse colors and textures of our underwater space. I concentrate on exploring the varied underwater species in a world less populated by humans. The Underwater Realm challenges the eye and brain to perceive the familiar and unfamiliar in extraordinary ways and constantly inspires me and reinforces the miracle of synergy and harmony. My photography has been featured in national publications and awarded on local, state, national and international levels. I hold the Master of Science Degree in Communication Disorders as well as the Master of Education Degree in Guidance and Counseling”.   www.janesaullphotography.com

BARRY SCHEIN

Barry is an award winning commercial photographer, educator and photo editor. During his career he has created photography for many nationally branded Fortune 500 companies and their advertising agencies. He received an EMMY award for his work at NBC TV in New York and an Eastman Kodak Professional Photographers award. Both Nikon and the international journal Graphis have recognized his work. Barry’s photographs have been displayed at Nikon House in New York City, the Kodak Pavilion at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Center as well as numerous group shows in South Florida and is represented in a number of private collections.

 

 

BARRY SEIDMAN

Barry Seidman grew up in New York’s fast-paced advertising business establishing him as one of the top advertising print media photographers in the country. He works for the top international brands. Seidman now devotes his time to fine art photography, which is enthusiastically collected around the world. “My work”, Seidman says, “is more akin to a painter in a studio than a photographer making snapshots. I choose not to go out into the world and bring back what I’ve seen, but to start with a concept, pre-visualizing, executing and highlighting what I see and how I see it. The finished work is then presented larger than life, inviting the viewer to walk in the landscape of my mind’s eye. My images then create an illusion of simplicity. The exploration of my ideas is done in photographic series. At times inspiration is illusive, but then there it is – like magic – in the revelation of imagined images.”

 

 

THOMAS WINTER

Thomas Winter is a Florida Commercial Photographer specializing in Corporate and Industrial Photography. Tom creates compelling photography for business communications and advertising. His unique images and editorial style help tell a story, capture a moment and deliver a message. Tom’s business background and corporate experience give him a unique perspective that enhances and informs his work. He understands the importance of delivering value and being part of a creative team. His landscapes are part of his ongoing personal work that take him away from his commercial routine.
