Natalie (New York Photographer / City Mouse)

Natalie first got excited about photography when she learned how to make a pinhole camera in high school. Since then, she explored many kinds of cameras and processes. From 35mm to large format. Tin type to polaroid and then to digital. She's realized it's not so much about the camera but the who, where, and why of a photograph that truly matters.  She loves photographing people at their most honest moments and feels truly honored to document these crazy-awesome spirited events!

Hardy (Northern California Photographer / Mustache Aficionado / Vagabond)

Hardy is a Bay Area native having grown up on a cattle ranch on the outskirts of Napa Valley. Some claim he was raised by wolves. Spending most of his youth growing up outside helped shape his ever-curious and observant nature. He still visits the ranch as much as he can to go on hikes and jeep rides with never-aging grandmother. He has as much fun getting muddy today as he did as a kid.

The fact that Hardy gets to photograph for a living makes him pinch himself every day. He currently photographs many different subjects; from weddings, to lifestyle, photojournalism, editorial, and studio work. 

Something you may not know: 

It is said that Hardy has an iron stomach. Having once spent an entire week in Mexico solely eating street tacos and drinking cheap cerveza - without getting sick.

Erin has had a camera since she was in kindergarten. She has done many interesting things -- including collecting bugs in Tahiti and measuring climate change in the Arctic -- but has always come back to photography.
