Wes Davis – wesdavisphotography.com
My name is Wesley Owen Davis and I was born in late October, 1980, in the biggest little city in the world, Reno Nevada. Every summer when I was a child, we would hop in the family car with mom, dad and brother and set off on an adventure. Somewhere along the road my pops handed me his Pentax k-1000 camera and I was hooked for life.
Today I live in Sacramento California with my brilliant and radiant partner Brea, and our silly little magical daughter Bijou. I am partners in an experimental venue / art gallery space in downtown Sacramento called Beatnik Studios. I play banjo in a band called Güero. I have been jumping around on a skateboard most of my life and still go toss myself around on occasion. I love to travel and go on adventures. I love to camp, swim, hike and get dirty. I am super duper lucky and grateful for my place in this world. Like most photographers, I typically keep my words short and sweet and let my images tell the stories.

Gordon Lazzarone – www.lazzaronephotography.com
I have been in business in the Sacramento area since 1981, after attending Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara and working for Contemporary Illustrators in Kansas City, MO, a full service design, illustration and photography studio.
Although the process of image making has changed dramatically from film to digital, one thing has remained constant - my love for photography, collaborating with other creatives in producing work which elevates the brand of our clients.
I love the challenge of photographing many different things. From people to product and food, both in the studio and on location, the particular challenges of lighting, composition, etc. is what fuels me. The quality of light, of which I am particularly interested in, informs our visceral response to an image and I care a lot about that.
