The use of contrast in his work is particularly engaging.

Dr. Bill Chu wanted to get out and about more but as his day job, as a paediatrician, keeps him pretty busy, he opted to get out into his own backyard where he has a butterfly garden!
If you ever wondered what you can manage in macro photography without going far from home, this is the guy to follow!

This is work which absolutely brings out the best in people and it’s so emotional.

Martha Stewart loves her work and so do we.

He was once nominated one of the 500 most influential people in fashion, so it should come as no surprise that Mariano’s images are very good, indeed.
His real gift is painting with light to bring his subjects to life in stunning and engaging ways.
