Guy Bryant:Guy is a passionate and dedicated photographer who's had a life long passion for nature. He loves hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, Scuba diving, spelunking and cave diving. ... To experience the diversity and beauty of this wonder filled planet, he has traveled to all 50 states and, unbelievably, to all the Continents, including Antartica. Interest in watercolor, oil painting and pastel, naturally led him into digital photography. Initially, photography was just a vehicle for future art subjects, but now he lives to shoot. Put a camera in this Guy's hands, and he can be absorbed for hours. Photography is just sooo easily incorporated in his travelling and all his outdoor adventures...

Amy Sturkey:Amy was born into photography really. Her father, Don Sturkey, is a nationally acclaimed photographer. There are pictures of her mother pregnant with her, pictures of her at the hospital just after birth, published pictures of her being nursed, pictures of her with one of her first toilet training successes. (It’s a head shot. Her look of surprise on the toilet was for years run in the Charlotte Observer with the caption reading, “Amy gazes with amazement upon what Santa brought her on Christmas morning.”) Well, you get the idea.
