Escaping the rat race, and taking a leap of faith on myself, my work ethic, and my potential has been so empowering, and it shows me that thinking outside the cube shouldn’t just be an inspiring quote, it should be an outline to not settling until you find a career path you’re truly passionate about and even better if its one that encourages you to be the best version of yourself! Read more>>

At age of 13, I fell in love with sneakers. Yeah, I was that kid that had 40+ pairs of sneakers.

We became friends when we both started working at the same company around the same time. Both of us dabbled in all areas of media production, but the two of us each specialized in one area (Trevor with DSLR photography and Ryan with digital video production). Eventually, it occurred to us… why don’t we join forces and teach each other what we know? Read more>>

I started training dogs in high school. Believe it or not, I didn’t grow up with dogs, we had one dog for a couple of years as a kid but that was it. In high school for extra cash, I would paint pet portraits and have the dogs sit and stay so I could photograph or sketch them. Then, in college, I went to school for fine arts but paid my way through by working at a local doggie daycare and petsitting the faculties dogs. Read more>>

My story starts in the west – in Colorado. Born and raised on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, I was strongly influenced by my mother’s love and talent for making art, my father’s entrepreneurial spirit and of course the natural beauty that surrounded me. But I didn’t know how much impact it all would have until after I moved to the East Coast. Read more>>

I’ve always enjoyed drawing, as long as I can remember. In high school, I took a painting class and loved using my hands and getting messy. It was a fun stress-reliever for me. When I first went to college, I was accepted into Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts to study education and mathematics for some reason, but then finally listened to my gut and switched my major to Art before my first semester even started. Read more>>

Ash Sansoucie

I feel it’s probably pretty cliche to say that I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil, but it’s exactly that with me. I grew up in a very small town with not too much to do so art quickly became my favorite pastime. Saturday morning cartoons and video games inspired me as a young child. At first, I’d trace images of my favorites. Read more>>

Mary Collins

Afraid to lose that steady paycheck from my “day job,” I’ll admit it took way longer than it should have for me to take the leap into photography with both feet. For years, I had photography as a side job. It was very stressful for me handling both. It wasn’t until I became pregnant that I knew I needed to make a change. Read more>>
