Photographer Antoine Verglas was born in Paris. He began his career on the other side of the camera, working as the host on a popular French television show after graduating from France’s prestigious E.S.C. school of Business. Verglas then had the idea that would be his entree to the fast paced world of fashion photography.
It was then, in 1990 when Verglas moved to New York with his camera and his vision. Pluck and persistence paid off, with a documentary style photo series for French Elle which featured some of the top names in modeling. Shooting Stephanie Seymore, Linda Evangelista, Naomi, Claudia Shiffer and Cindy Crawford at home in very personal portraits just as they were reaching celebrity status was his big break, and indicative of the style which has become the Verglas signature.
This intimate style of capturing the person behind the camera has led to the rapid pace of work Verglas now has shooting for the world’s top fashion magazines. His photographs have appeared in Elle, Esquire, GQ, Maxim, Sports Illustrated and Vogue.

Ellen von Unwerth is a German photographer best known for her playfully erotic images of female pop musicians and models. Over the course of her career, the artist has photographed Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Rihanna, among many others. “Technique undoubtedly helps make photography magical, but I prefer to work with atmosphere,” she has said. “I think that the obsession with technique is a male thing. I would rather search for a new model or location.”
Born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany in 1954, she was raised in various foster homes in Bavaria. Discovered by a model-scout in Munich at 20 years old, she relocated to Paris, where she earned a living as a model for the next 10 years before turning to photography. In 1989, she shot Claudia Schiffer for a Guess fashion campaign, a commission which effectively launched her career. Since then, von Unwerth’s images have appeared in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview, and other publications, she has also shot campaigns for brands such as Dior, John Galliano, Ralph Lauren, and Uniqlo. In 1991, the artist won first prize at the International Festival of Fashion Photography, and American Photo Magazine named her as one of the most important people in photography in 1998. In 2017, the artist was the subject of the exhibition “Ellen von Unwerth Heimat,” at TASCHEN Gallery in Los Angeles, coinciding with a book launch of the same name.
The leading Belgian Fine Art photographer Frank De Mulder is a celebrated personality within the international photo scene. He has worked for large advertising campaigns and well-known magazines, including Playboy, FHM, GQ, Maxim and Elle.
De Mulder’s most intriguing work, however, are the intimate impressions of female emotions and beauty. De Mulder released 5 books with the renowned publishing group teNeues: SENSES (2007), PURE (2010), GLORIOUS (2013), HEAVEN (2015) and TRIBUTE (2017).
The images are never provocative, but they tend to balance on the edge of what is forbidden. That balance is what makes the photographs so powerful and interesting. De Mulder shows us the delicate sensual world of women—from fragile and emotional to flamboyant and erotic—always at the highest level of beauty.
Italian photographer Marco Tenaglia is known for his daring and provocative fashion portraiture.
His bold and intriguing photographic vision is the result of a mixture of both contemporary and classic styles.
Tenaglia’s women aren’t classical expression of beauty. Often photographed in recurring poses, placed in luxury or decadent settings, they show a strong personality and a sort of cold sensuality.
His photographs are balancing on this fine and sometimes tricky line between fashion-beauty-glamour and erotic-sexy-trashy, resulting in elegant and sophisticated black and white photography with a timeless quality and the perfection of imperfection.
Renowned for being easy to work with, Marco ensures a comfortable, friendly but always professional atmosphere for every production.
