Even though my hands-on photography experience is short, my background and past work experience is what built my skills and talent. I worked as the Art Director for Playboy Magazine Serbia and the Photo Editor for Esquire Magazine Serbia. This is why I have years of experience working with photography and photographers, as the person in charge of photo shoots, picking and editing editorial photos. In addition, I spent 4 years as the Art Director in two major global creative agencies, McCann Worldgroup and Grey Worldwide WPP, with duties that also heavily involved photography and photo shoots for ads and commercials.

camera Nikon D750, Sony Alpha a6300

I've had a passion for creative arts ever since I was a child. At an early age, I would pick up my saxophone and try my best to jam out with my father and uncle . Throughout my teenage years, I was arranging and producing music as a hobby. My interest in photography peaked during my senior year at George Mason University (GMU), while I was taking a photography course. I was amazed and fell in love with the process of being able to capture human expressions and emotions down to the millisecond. After graduating from GMU with a bachelor in Information Systems & Operations Management, I decided to expand my knowledge in the art of photography through books, attending seminars and shadowing local professional photographers at weddings and portrait sessions.

camera Canon EOS 80D, Sony A6500

One look through Delana Nalesnik’s portfolio shows that she expresses her passion for art through her photography. Her affinity for capturing fleeting moments started at a young age - as soon as her hands grew into holding a digital SLR camera. Since then, she has gained experience in capturing pictures for nearly every occasion: graduation, sports, parties, backyard gatherings and family portraiture, to name a few. If Delana does one thing different than the rest, it is undertaking the sophisticated task of doing more than just taking a picture; she uses every shutter to create an everlasting rendition of not just that moment, but a rendition of the personality, opportunity, courage, excitement or love within it. She prefers to use gorgeous outdoor locations as a backdrop so you can just relax and be yourself instead of being stuck in, what she calls, "a stuffy studio with more equipment than an operating room." As she believes the heart is a camera's true lens, one of her favorite quotes is, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

Kevin loves gadgets and what is better than a camera! These are amazing tools that allow you to share and shape our world with images. He has always known the power of a great image to influence people, whether it was candidate shot of friend or a tall building, it told a story that changed the way you viewed the world. His first camera was a manual Kodak film camera that required knowledge of settings based on the available light and not just pointing and shooting. Those lessons have made him a better photographer today, as getting a good shot upfront is worth more than a photoshopped image.

How did you get started with photography

I got started with photography through videography. I had been doing video for about a year when a friend of mine needed last minute pictures for a clothing line that contacted her. I helped her out and also enjoyed doing the photoshoot. She loved the work and slowly people started to come to me for photography. It snowballed from there and here I am having shot almost every genre of photography there is. I now have a passion for photography and love making people happy and accomplishing their goals and vision with my work.

What do you love about your job?

I love the creativity of photography. It is a limitless art form and I love when it involves other people, especially on a creative level. The fulfillment I get from photography is nothing like I've gotten from anything else. To see people's faces light up and their grin when you provide the product or service they desire is an indescribable feeling.

What are some of your favorite places in Washington to take photographs?

My favorite place to shoot in Northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. is anywhere that has streets and tall buildings. I like the vibe shooting in streets and cities provides in addition to the model/outfit. This isn't suitable for all shoots, but anytime it is fashion related I love shooting in the city or in town centers.
