They love tapping into the emotionality of character. Using empathy to create the visual representation of the world around them. They are drawn to stories featuring true to life characters in an elevated world. Their photography is aimed at shooting things as they are while incorporating stylistic accents that highlight the atmosphere of the story. The ultimate goal is to be felt and not seen.

Eythan loves to meditate on and off set.
