OUR PHOTOGRAPHERS

Aaron Rogosin
Portland (US)
Aaron Rogosin is a rare Portland Oregon native who has built an international network of clients by prioritizing hard work and a great attitude above all else. His obsession with photography began at the age of 13 when his father handed him his old Minolta SRT 101. From that moment on the camera became his means to gain a sense of self and as a way to explore the world and learn about all it has to offer. As a result Aaron has developed a well rounded style of image making that allows him to confidently enter any environment and produce fresh and compelling content in every discipline he has photographed. His style is to immerse himself entirely within the moment in order to create a visual authenticity that is unique in todays media. He continues to build his world wide community by working with a wide variety of subjects, clients, and companies, including Daimler-Benz, PepsiCo, Red Bull, SXSW, and GE among many others. All of this said Aaron considers his greatest accomplishment is being able to set an example for his daughter that with hard work and persistence you can make a living doing what you love no matter how difficult it may be to achieve.

Chris Garrison
orlando (US)
Chris Garrison is a photographer you can find somewhere between Gate C35 and the rental car line. Spending most of his year traveling with more checked baggage than an average family of 12; he loves coming back to home (Orlando, FL) to his wife Jane and golden retriever Henry James. Chris grew an addiction to white sand and blue water from growing up in Naples, FL, where he actually met his then future wife. So when Jane and Chris are not spending time on their lake with Henry James, you can find them hidden away between the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
Originally specializing in shooting extreme action sports and athletes, Chris has created a unique style over the past decade. The look Chris is known for has now become his brand and nick name, FlashGarrison. Taking everything he learned from the high-speed world of action sports, Chris is now immersed in the highly competitive world of commercial advertising. Some of the first agencies and brands Chris initially worked with were dream clients of his. The knowledge from working with these large brands gives him the confidence and endurance he needs to push further on every shoot.
With a history of being a post college multi-sport athlete himself, Chris has passion, drive, determination, and need to push boundaries like no one else. Chris is humbled to have received many awards for his editorial and commercial work. He has grown a strong, confidant, and magnetic personality, with camp side fire stories that will blow the most seasoned veteran’s mind. However those stories never last long enough because Gate C35 will be calling him back … in a flash.

Jaanus Ree
Tallinn (EE)
Although I was always taking pictures during my school years, my real path towards becoming a professional photographer started when I got injured during a windsurfing competition and I had to stay on the shore for a while. I just couldn’t sit on the beach doing nothing; I wanted to get closer to the action. So I took a camera and got myself on the race officer’s boat as a photographer.
At first I just wanted to see the action but then I ended up only shooting pictures. After that I was invited to shoot various windsurfing competitions and later on all kinds of different sports. A year later, I enrolled in the Estonian Academy of Arts to study photography.
Today my main focus is on motorsports but I love to shoot other sports. Thanks to Nikon and Elinchrom I can try almost anything that comes to mind. I am always trying to find something new in every shoot: new lighting techniques, cool remote camera places or anything else. I believe there are a lot of interesting things yet to be discovered in the world of photography.
