Ice cream or pizza?: Pizza, it’s the bee’s knees.
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: Madame CJ Walker… she was the first female millionaire in America. She made her empire from scratch, I think it would be pretty interesting to talk to her and see how she did it.
I´m a 22 year old student. I come from the Slovak republic, and started with photography 3 years ago.
Photography is my passion, especially portraits. I love to play with a photo in Photoshop until it´s perfect. Sometime it last for more than 5 hours. My work is inspired by everyday life, because life is full of art.
My motto is: What happens inside your mind can happen inside a camera!
Ice cream or pizza?: Ice cream, because it is sweet as my life.
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: My dream dinner date is a walk in the park with my actual boyfriend at the age of 80.
Hello, my name is Aiksoon, and I am a 20-year-old photographer based in Singapore.
There are definitely intricate and small details in aspects of everyday life that are overlooked and often missed. To be able to showcase these unique perspectives to the world through an online platform is simply an honour, and as long as you’re happy with doing what you love, everything will turn out well at the end of the day.
Ice cream or pizza?: Why not both?
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: Not anyone in particular actually. Just a chill dinner out with my friends and family is ideal. I really love it when the whole atmosphere is relaxed and everyone is genuine to one another showing sincerity and spreading the love around!
My name is Natalia Klenova. I am a freelance photographer. I was born in Russia, but since 1999 I have lived in England, the USA, and now I live in Belgium with my family.
Ice cream or pizza?: Pizza
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: God. I have so many questions…
I am a weather and environmental photographer, and storm chaser. Founder of the Webby Award winning Clouds 365 Project.
Ice cream or pizza?: Pizza!
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: This is tough. I was going to say Julia Roberts, to see if I could get her to laugh. I would have to go with Benjamin Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie singer. His music just speaks to me.
My name is TJ Drysdale. I’m a fine art/fashion photographer based in Tampa, FL.
Filmmaking was my first love, and I wasn’t necessarily interested in photography until my grandparents bought me my first DSLR. That was back in 2009, and I’ve been taking photographs ever since.
I began with landscapes/nature, and eventually moved towards photographing people. I’ve found a great passion for it, and can’t imagine doing anything else! I’m always striving to improve, and be the best photographer I can be!
Ice cream or pizza?: Strawberry shake! 🙂
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: Scarlett Johansson, because my life would be complete.

Hi there, I’m @s1000 and I have a problem. I’ve been into graphic design since as far back as I can remember. Growing up freezing in Denmark kept me indoors playing around with colors, typography, lines, and visuals in general. Then came photography and it messed all that up. Well, except for typography, everything was pretty much the same, but since I’m a huge fan of landscapes and man-made structures above and below ground, there’s was no way I could stay inside.
Honestly, I’ve always had a thing for photography, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to the art and state of mobile photography on Instagram that I was seriously hooked. Times change and today I’m obviously more outside than inside, in the sense that photography has taken over and being part of the creative 500px community has definitely inspired me to go even further.
Just recently I discovered a stack of photos from very early days—from back when photos were on a piece of paper. I forgot the brand, but still remember the joy of selecting the right film and having these developed. Today, I’m primarily shooting on my Olympus OM-D EM-1, which is easily carried around. On occasion I’ll bring the heavier Canon 6D and my beloved 16-35mm attached to it. Lastly, I wouldn’t leave home without my trusty iPhone 6s.
Ice cream or pizza?: Summer or winter? Day or night? That’s right, there’s no way to answer that without excluding something I love, so let’s call it a draw 🙂
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: This might come out a bit cheesy, but no movie star, celebrity, or model would join the table at my dream dinner date—my date would have to be my wife who’s the one who taught me how to appreciate and love food 🙂
My name is Bryan Daugherty and I am a lifestyle and commercial photographer based in the pacific northwest.
Ice cream or pizza?: Pizza, most definitely. I think I’m one of the very few people in the world who dislike ice cream.
Who is your dream dinner date (anyone dead or alive) and why?: Mila Kunis because who wouldn’t?
