Ciril Jazbec

I was born in Slovenia in 1987. As a kid I dreamed of becoming a photographer for National Geographic. Then I forgot all about it.

I studied Management at the Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana before moving to London to study photography. I obtained my MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication in 2011.​ Since then, I’ve been working as an independent freelance photographer.

In 2013, I received the Leica Oskar Barnack Award for a photo story called Waiting to Move. In the same year, I also received an award at the Les Rencontres d’Arles, for my photo story On Thin Ice, which also won MAGNUM 30 under 30 in 2015.

I’ve been working as a contributing photographer for National Geographic Magazine since 2014. So much for childhood dreams ever being naive.

Sharon Montrose

Sharon Montrose has what most people consider a dream job: She photographs adorable animals—from lions to flamingos to knobbly-kneed giraffes—and sells prints online at her store, The Animal Print Shop. But what’s her job really like? Does she ever get scared? What’s the trickiest animal to photograph?

How do you persuade an energetic infant monkey to pause long enough for a photograph? You don’t. “I put the camera in front of him, let him do whatever he wanted and tried to capture his natural charm,” says Sharon Montrose. “Of course, you do need a lot of patience for that.”

It’s this sort of hands-off approach that has made the Los Angelean a leading light in animal photography, shooting everything from pet-food advertising to a number of animal-portrait books. Her latest in that line, Menagerie, herds together a full farmyard of animals, from baby goats to lambs, as well as exotic additions from pelicans to tigers. The result is a series of images that evoke the idiosyncrasies of each subject, from the baby porcupine with its head dipped towards the floor, each quill exquisitely outlined, to the evocative slithering gait of a crocodile on the move.

And Montrose’s favourite? “The monkey!” she chuckles. “He was like a little toddler, walking around the set, sucking his thumb. He was so affectionate he would even come over and hug me, and afterwards I just wanted to steal him and take him home with me.”

Elke Vogelsang




elke-vogelsang-love-family-portraits
Short introduction: born 1972, self-taught; dog and photography enthusiast
I work as a people and pet photographer based in Hildesheim, Germany, but also provide my services nationwide and internationally. Pets are one of my favourite subjects, but not the only one. I take pictures of people, too. You’ll find my people photography here (site in German only): elkevogelsang.de.
It is my ambition to show my verve and my love through my photos thus creating truly individual and impressive pictures, that elate you the same as me when I am on the set.
ANIMAL WELFARE
In my galleries you can often find pictures of my faithful “photography companion dogs” and family members Noodles, Scout and Ioli, three Spanish rescue dogs. They are my inspiration and joy. One can not ask for better animal companions. I am very grateful that I have them.

Flora Borsi




flora-borsi-love-family-portraits
Flora is a young fine art photographer from Hungary. She uses exquisite photo manipulation to create surreal images that are thematically focused on identity, relationships, emotions and dreams. Her immaculate technique and subtle conceptual
ideas create beautiful evocations of universal emotions, from lust and desire to despair and loss.
Flora at once captures the complex strength and fragility of the human psyche. She expertly visualises dark fantasies and atmospheric dreams, utilising the uncanny and clever metaphor, while unlocking what it means to think, feel, dream and express in the urban world.
Her work often features the female body and she plays with hiding and revealing the eyes or face to leave only the feminine form,
exploring questions of female representation and the relationship between body and self.

Flora has exhibited internationally with solo exhibitions in Europe and the USA, and has most notably taken part in the
“Continental Shift” group exhibition at Saatchi Gallery. She has also exhibited at the Louvre, France.
Her ethereal aesthetic has won multiple art prizes and garnered critical acclaim from press including The Guardian’s Observer
and BBC Culture. Her artwork was the face of Adobe Photoshop in 2014.
