Charlie Dailey is a freelance TV camerawoman and photographer.
She has captured amazing images from such diverse locations as the Mekong Delta and the deserts of Namibia, Borneo to Latin America. However, she is just as likely to be found in the south of France filming classic super yachts in Les Voiles De St. Tropez.
Not surprisingly, as she spends so much time behind a film camera, her photographs have been described as having an extraordinarily raw cinematic quality that appeals to a wide audience.
Her limited edition prints are now increasingly sought after.

David Preutz learnt his craft shooting on large format with film when photographers had to get it right in front of the lens before pressing the shutter. He now shoots mostly in digital, but the same rules still apply.
He has been supplying international advertising agencies with images for 20 years - shooting everything from a bottle of Chanel to an articulated truck. With a wealth of experience to draw upon, David is equally at home in the studio or out on location, regardless of whether he is shooting still life, a stunning landscape or portrait.
Constantly looking for new photographic avenues to explore, he has recently been shooting a personal project on the Hot Rod scene and is researching a new venture to be announced shortly. Adding to his repertoire, he is currently getting to grips with HD to begin shooting moving images.
David has representation and production bases in Spain, Italy, Turkey and The Caribbean, and has a number of handpicked production talent resources around the world to help out.
Recent clients include Kia Motors, McDonald's, Fiat and The Home Office.
John Anthony Rizzo shoots for advertising, editorial and publishing clients worldwide. He lives in northern Italy but returns to Boston, Massachusetts frequently throughout the year for both advertising and Fine Art clients.

Over the years he has shot numerous ad campaigns, magazine assignments and book projects. There have been photo shoots in Paris, Prague, Pittsburg and Portugal ("and that’s just the P's!"), and he has completed long tours through Italy and most of Europe behind the lens of his Leica.
Clients include Condé Nast, Geo, Food & Wine, Fairmont Hotels, Starwood Hotels, Chronicle Publishing, Stewart, Tabori & Chang, Sasquatch Books, Bon Appetit, Bertolli and Barilla.

Professional creative photography is as important now as it has ever been. Like designers, professional photographers are motivated by the desire to create a work of admired permanence, and nurture the hope that some small piece of what they create will secure a place in the heart of the viewer.
That photography remains so popular is testament to this natural desire to immortalise vision.
SIMEphoto's job as an agency is to convince its clients that good photography, like good design, is worth paying for - not least because there has been a creative process involved in producing the images. Precious few of the greatest photographs are lucky accidents: good photography is no more a mechanical process than good design.
