More than 20 years of photography experience grants PhotoArts Marin's Glen Graves more than just an eye for an ideal snapshot. His skill with traditional film cameras, lighting, and composition elements imbues his photos with a quality that has drawn the attention of such clients as Ford, US Air, and Architectural Digest. When not capturing boudoir portraits or smiling families during photo shoots, Glen can be found in the classroom teaching aspiring photographers the tricks of the trade, from using dynamic angles to frame a subject to how saying ?cheese? banishes spirits intent on photobombing.

Jonathan Mandel attributes much of his current success as a photographer to the people who gave him his start at 8 years old. There was Mr. King, his photography teacher, who taught him how to develop pictures. And his father, who gave him his first camera and patiently allowed a bathroom in their apartment to become a darkroom. That was a while ago, and yet something he learned early on still lives on in Jonathan's work today: a sense of discovery and play. His clients often credit the visual artist with making his sessions fun, bringing out natural moments, and demonstrating a rare talent for steadying a tripod inside a bouncy castle. Whether capturing happy families for portraits or documenting wedding days, his unique eye for light casts each shot in unexpected, striking tones.
