ADAM SWORDS

adam-swords“I think I’ve always been a photographer, as weird as that sounds. I’ve always had a sort of creative inclination that as a child I would try to explore by drawing the ideas I had in my head. But I could never realize them on paper and it wasn’t until I picked up a camera that I was able to take those images and stories finally translate them in to something tangible.”

Adam has always photographed the things he’s most passionate about, which has lead him to focus his efforts on high end automotive and luxury lifestyle work. Whether it’s a global advertising campaign or a run-and-gun low key shoot for social media, he thrives on the challenge of creating the very best images with whatever resources are at hand.

As a keen traveler, Adam Swords has worked with some of the best known brands on campaigns around the world, from California to Corsica and everything in between. “It’s another perk of the ‘job’, getting to meet amazing people in beautiful places. I’m thankful every day for the opportunities my camera has afforded me” – he says.

Adam’s clients include Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Canon, Sony, Microsoft and Nokia.

SteveWaydaSTEPHEN WAYDA

Stephen Wayda, Los Angeles based celebrity, commercial and glamour photographer, for over three decades has been on contract to Playboy Magazine. Hugh Hefner said “…from an inauspicious start, he has become the most published photographer in the history of Playboy. His iconic images have helped change the way the world looks at women, and the way women look at the world.” He has been published in more general interest, fashion, lifestyle and men’s magazine throughout the world that than he can count. Kim Kardashian, Travis Barker, Karina Smirnoff, James Woods and Tom Selleck all said their pictures were their best. Demi Moore loved her shooting, but Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn’t so happy when he and the editor disagreed. Pamela Anderson calls him “The Bomb”. Gene Autry told him, “Keep shootin’ those shots. I’d sure like to be in your boots, son.”Stephen was born in Los Angeles, growing up at the mountain and beaches of Southern California. He moved to Utah to go to college, wanting to join the Navy ROTC and hoping to fly jets. After college, he was a newspaper reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune, covering murders, mayhem, local and state government, and the lives of everyday people who became news through triumph, failure or tragedy. When he inherited his grandfather’s cameras, he found taking pictures – pictures of interesting people and beautiful women – was more fun and easier for him than writing, so he taught himself photography and became a photographer.
