Meet The


Carlos & Gino

[expand title=”Learn More” trigclass=”noarrow”]We are Carlos & Gino Santa Maria. We are artists at heart who love art in all its manifestations and expressions. However, photography and painting are our passions. Originally trained as engineers, portrait painters, and graphic artists; eventually we returned to do what we have always wanted to do: the creative process through digital imagery and painting.

That creative fire that burns within us found the perfect expression through photography and the digital darkroom.

We know what designers want because we have worked in that field and understand the frustrations of not having the images you need to create. Or maybe you found the image but does not give you any copyspace for your text.

It is our hope and desire that our extensive body of work can partner with your ideas and concepts to tell your story. If you have a storyboard you are itching to tell, we have the reference material to bring your ideas into reality.

We sell our work through the various agencies that carry our images. They are royalty free images, so acquire the license that best suits your needs for your project at hand.

The body of work that we have available represent and embody the consuming passion that has driven us to create a wide array of images ranging from portraits to business concepts, medical, fashion, travel, editorial and lifestyle. Also we have a diverse collection of concept photography and issue-oriented imagery.

We create the images in-studio as well as outdoors in different locations around the world. All the post-editing process is done with Adobe Photoshop CS6. Vectors with Illustrator CS6. Powered by Mac OSX.

Our formal training comes from the University of Missouri Saint Louis, but the skills we have acquired have been honed during countless hours of practice in the real world.

Stock photography is what we do today. And in doing it we feel as the most fortunate human beings in the world to do what we love for a living; and enjoy every minute of it!

Our gear: Nikon D5 and D4, pro glass and plenty of studio lighting and extras.[/expand]
