Gordon Alexander is a lifestyle photographer working out of Detroit, MI
My joy is photographing people: curious and adorable children, productive teens evolving into young adults and active seniors throughout the world. Focusing on skills, educational processes and community involvement gives me an understanding of global cultures. Through my travels,I have focused on landscapes, ethnic cultures and flowers. Climbing temples in Cambodia,waterfalls in Argentina,ruins at Machu Picchu in Peru and sleeping on boats in Vietnam, visiting villages for micro-credit help for women in India, participating in archaeological digs in Majorca and celebrating regattas in Venice have enhanced the photographic adventures I have had. My previous career as an actress in theater and film prepared me to communicate with ease behind the camera capturing images of all ages for assignments in magazines,public relations and corporate advertising. Through stock agencies, non-profits, advertising and textbooks companies, my photography has been seen for over 20 years on billboards, books and in brochures.
I am associated with the following stock photo agencies: PhotoEditinc.com,Getty Images(Stone and Photographer’s Choice),Stock Connection and Alamy.com.
In 2010 I formed a virtual agency with two other women with educational images — EducationImagery.com .

Growing up in Oklahoma as a fourth generation native, I took my first flight abroad with the drama department of Oklahoma University performing in a play at U.S. bases throughout the South Pacific, Japan and Korea. That trip opened my eyes to the world and brought me my first SLR.

Some people see things in a different light: Mitchell Kearney for one. It’s a gift nourished by innate curiosity and honed by experience and training. He sees what is there and something more: the intangible spirit of the thing. More than a good likeness of a subject, Mitchell elicits an image that resonates much like a sustained musical tone of a double bassoon or cello. He’s traveled the world over for love and inspiration, each and every step of which has prepares him supremely for what life brings.

New York based editorial photographer MARIANNE BARCELLONA has traveled to over 23 countries documenting airlifts for humanitarian organizations, covering Recognition Events for Fortune 500 corporations, completing story assignments and environmental portraits for publications such as People, Forbes, Fortune, Money and The New York Times, and creating images for herself.
BARCELLONA thrives on photographing diverse situations. She likes interacting with her subjects, and finds pleasure in helping her subjects to relax in front of the lens and enjoy the experience of being photographed. When the situation calls for a ‘fly on the wall’ approach, she knows how to keep a low profile and maintain sensitivity to the situation, and she finds deep satisfaction in searching out and capturing the moments and images that best tell the essence of a story. For corporate Incentive and Recognition Events, BARCELLONA has assembled her CORPORATE CANDIDS TEAM of outstanding, highly experienced editorial photographers who bring an energy of excitement and creativity to the events. The Teamï¿½s goal is to always portray their subjects at their personal best, because BARCELLONA and her team recognize that when the Special Event is over, the one thing that remains are the photographs.
