Joel Grimes has been working as a commercial advertising photographer for nearly 30 years. In 1990, he took a two-year sabbatical from his commercial work to produce a coffee table book entitled Navajo, Portrait of a Nation. The book received a number of photographic and design awards and was presented in an 18-month solo exhibit at the Smithsonian American History Museum.
Grimes' assignments have taken him to every state across the USA and to over 50 countries around the globe. He has produced work for clients such as AT&T, Goldman Sachs, Hewlett Packard, Red Bull, Sony, Visa and Volvo. Aside from his commercial work, he teaches workshops and lectures across the country. He is also a contributor to Kelby Training, FramedShow.com and PhotoVision.
Stanley Smith has exhibited his work widely in galleries and museums all over the United States, most recently in the 2008 exhibition Smoke and Mirrors at the Seattle Art Museum and in 2009 at the University Art Gallery at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo.
As a former advertising photographer, and one of the first users of numerical assembly in photography, Jean-François Rauzier created the concept of “hyperphoto,” a term that essentially means putting together many high resolution images into a collage.
