Eli Meir Kaplan is a commercial photographer and director who became interested in visual media after his parents brought home an early black and white video camera when he was four years-old. Eli's first of many videos on the camera was a stop-motion battle between He-Man and Skeletor.
Eli’s longstanding interest in the visual arts, storytelling, and meeting new people led him to documentary photography. He draws from his documentary background to capture genuine, aspirational, and intimate moments from the human experience in the commercial photography and video he does today.
Eli lives in Washington, DC with his wife and two daughters and has been told that he's fun to work with.
I’m Nicole Loeb, and I am a Boston lifestyle photographer, telling vibrant and joyful stories for commercial brands.
I was a curious kid – also extremely quirky. I always had either a paintbrush or a camera in hand. It was a constant obsession – chasing light and capturing fleeting moments.
Photography has taught me to be an efficient problem solver, open-minded, and extremely resourceful. I’ve hunted with the Hadzabe bushmen tribe in Tanzania and trekked the world’s largest cave in the world for a week.
Eleven years ago, I left a corporate life to embark on photography as a career. My previous life in management consulting has me addicted to excel and thinking in bullet points. Some things never change.
You can usually find me with my Siberian Husky, Sledder, on the search for really good sushi, or in an airport lounge.
Stewart was born in Montreal inside an elevator during a snowstorm to an architect dad and an actress mom. Some say that this is how he got his discerning sense of shot design and a love of casting people. Although, none of this ever seemed relevant to him. Working out scenes at the dinner table for a solid 17 years while living at home, definitely left a mark on how he thinks. He gets a charge out of working with people from all walks of life, not only due to his upbringing but mostly due to his innate curiosity in hearing their stories and learning about what makes others tick.
It was this curiosity that drove Stewart to create a monograph titled “Identity”, a biopic project featuring well known and unusual people. Each portrait in the book is combined with their own personally handwritten quotes, expressing their uniqueness & individuality. Walter Isaacson comments, "Each page will delight you, and also make you think. It’s a treasure.” Likewise, Stewart’s most recent title, “Seeing Red”, takes a fun jab at the urban myth of redheads becoming extinct.
