The Rig: Robert-Paul Jansen

Posted on February 10, 2014

My name is Robert-Paul Jansen, and I am a real-estate developer from the Netherlands. But I’m also a photographer, husband and father of two sons (8 and 10) and a baby to be born in the beginning of 2014.

I’m Brian Kraft and I’m a professional photographer and family man, living in Denver, Colorado. I’m completely self-taught and just fell in love with photography several years ago. I shoot a variety of stuff– basically anything anyone wants to pay me to shoot and I’m very happy to do so.

I’m a portrait and commercial photographer based out of Calgary, AB. and I am completely fascinated with light. Fortunately, I’ve found a way to turn that fascination into a career that is now in its 6th year and going strong. I’ve carved out a niche in the Calgary market for creating fresh imagery for companies who are re-branding and looking to get away from the 90’s style of stagnant, lifeless, portrait studio images that have poorly represented their brand for so many years.

The Rig: Robert Boyer

Who are you and what’s your profession? Okay – the hard part. I’m Robert Boyer and I detest talking about myself so I’ll make this brief. I’ve done a fairly insane mix of diverse things professionally all over the map. Probably because I never really decided what I wanted to be when I grew up. Photography wise I’ve done it full-time for quite some time but went down a commercial road that lead me to a point of despair and cynicism that I won’t even attempt to describe. A few years ago I put down the camera for what I thought might be forever as I was in a crisis of my own making – success at making photographs of which I had no…

The Rig: Patrick La Roque

Posted on December 29, 2013

  Who are you and what’s your profession? My name is Patrick La Roque and I’m a commercial, portrait and documentary photographer based in Montreal, Canada — Although we actually live in a little town called Otterburn Park, about 30 minutes away. We have three young kids: a boy and two little girls. Keeps us busy… I switched to photography as a full-time gig about 7 years ago. Before that I was a musician, I worked in post, multimedia, I was a partner in a production company… Left it all behind to pursue a craft that quite suddenly gobbled me up after years of simply being a hobby. I realized one morning that I didn’t want to be doing anything else and moved on.…

The Rig: Derek Clark

Posted on December 23, 2013

Who are you and what’s your profession? My name is Derek Clark and I’m a documentary photographer in Scotland UK, where I live with my wife and our two kids. I’m a member of The Kage Collective, an international group of photographers focused on visual storytelling and documentary work and in 2012 I was awarded UK Professional Photographer Of The Year in the News Category for a photo from a story shot in Italy called Running Into Darkness. Most recently I have been shooting a story on orphanages in the Philippines, which will be forever etched in my memory and work that I would like to continue in some way. I also have a passion for black and white street photography and have a…
