Beauty © Elvina-Mae Farkas
Elvina Mae Farkas, called Elly by her friends and family, is only 22 years old, but her photography has been around for a few years already. The self-taught fashion and portraiture photographer from Melbourne, Australia has been a freelance photographer since the age of 16, and the years of experience have proven to be very beneficial. The unique style and vision of her photography are evident from image to image in her impressive portfolio. Her photographs vary from formalistic color pallets and tones that could be taken from a dream to stripped down and purely expressive natural portraits.
Spring © Christopher O’Donnell
Christopher O’Donnell is a landscape photographer who has lived and worked near the coastlines of Maine for the past few years since leaving college. While he does shoot subject matter beyond what he has built his reputation on, his primary focus, his gift, is—and will remain—the ever-changing and breathtaking landscapes in and around Maine. One thing that his fans have noticed-and he touches on it briefly in the interview we had below—is that even when he shoots in the same location, no two images are ever the same. More so than that, each image he captures has its own life, its own personality, and its own powerful dynamic.
Each photograph is a separate world unto itself. As he continues to build on his impressive body of work, Chris has also incorporated writing on photography—he has an e-book in the works now—and teaching other photographers through his private lessons and tutorials. Landscape photography may be a conventional genre of photography, but Chris continues to show just how unpredictable nature can be in all of its subtle yet glorious states.
