Creative Conversations with the Spectacular SJ Van Zyl

Creative Conversations with the Spectacular SJ Van Zyl

Photographer, creator, co-producer, and lover of peanut butter, SJ Van Zyl is someone you may have already heard of. If you haven’t, you’ve definitely seen his work! He has a way with his subjects, you can truly sense that they are relaxed and exude true emotion when you look at his images. I wanted to take a deep dive into how he’s able to do that and what his secrets are. In combination, he pairs it up perfectly with a great color palette and he graciously explores these topics with us! I learned a thing of two from him and can’t wait to apply it in my own work!

Creative Conversations with Adventure Photographer Kyle S. Ford

I’ve had the pleasure to see Kyle’s work evolve over the span of many years. What I admire about him is his incredible work ethic, and continuously producing work that inspires us to go out and explore more. He photos scenes in a way that feel very relatable and true to reality. It’s a part of what makes his work so appealing. Naturally, I’m too lazy to be an adventure photographer. I really wanted to know what goes into that world and how it’s like as a professional. I also wanted to know what goes into his post processing choices!

Creative Conversations with The Brilliant Kevin Titus

As I have watched Kevin Titus grow in his photographic journey over the years, I suspect that growth has come in spurts and stumbling lunges, a mixture of conscience grasps at new techniques and fumbles into successes. But his blending of wide angles and great welding of color makes each of his images brilliantly subtle and clean pieces of work which cause the pausing of scrolling fingers in appreciation. We recently sat down with Kevin to explore his process, his way of thinking, and his philosophy behind his art.

Creative Conversations with The Phenomenal Tina Leu

We’ve watched the work of Tina Leu for a while now. Her portrait work has been really captivating. I recently found her work on the Sue Bryce group and got to recently meet her in person at the Portrait Masters conference. There is something magical about her work and the essence of it. What I love most about her work is that she photographs a wide range of genres and still manages to maintain her style. We wanted to sit down and learn more about her work and her thoughts on color!
