Ten Photographers to Watch

These ten people (in no particular order) have at least two things in common: they’re all really excellent photographers, and they’ve all been members of JPG.

Reed Young

Reed proves that a signature style is an advantage in his incredibly strong collection of images. His trademark lighting technique involves a ten-foot pole and a strobe light, and makes his powerful portraits easily recognizable.


Andrew Hara

Andrew doesn’t take shortcuts. What some photographers do in photoshop, Andrew does with gels, flashlights, and environmental light sources. In this image, the blue streaks in the sky are helicopters and his shadow is created by headlights.


Dina Goldstein

You may know Dina from her brilliant Track Record series taken at Vancouver horse races. Despite a successful career as a commercial photographer, she’s got quite an eye for the absurd.


Jeremiah Ridgeway

There was a time, not too long ago, when the armed forces kept a tight lid on photographs taken by its soldiers. Count Jeremiah’s portfolio as one more advantage of the digital photography revolution, and see his humble, hardworking personality come through in his work.


Federico Erra

Oh Federico. Who can help but dream of Italy when viewing his images? How is it that he finds the most beautiful women in the world to photograph? Federico’s work was featured on the cover of JPG issue 19 and he thanked me with endless warmth.


Ryan Schude

Look out Jeff Wall and Gregory Crewdson, here comes Ryan Schude. Ryan lives in LA and makes photographs that look like movie stills and are just as complicated.


Anahita Avalos

Follow Anahita through everyday life in Villahermosa, Mexico, where she cares for her son with Costello Syndrome and adapts to her colorful new life there.


Simon Kossoff

Simon’s photography is like the album you have to listen to 20 times before you can’t get enough of it: subtle but surprisingly powerful. Check out his series of white houses (improper noun) of the heartland, and his shot of a frustrated Kansas police officer on election day.


Nadirah Zakariyah

In a word, infectious. The perfect word to describe both the bubbly Nadirah (a photography student at FIT) and her mostly Holga-shot work.


Christina McNeill

I’m so conditioned against favoritism towards Christina McNeill (we worked together at JPG) that I just now remembered how much better this list would be with her on it. Sorry for the late add, Christina, you rock the Hasselblad and belong on this list.
