Doug Bruce was born in Paris and grew up in Africa, France, Italy, Spain and England. He moved to New York in 1999 and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2005.
More comfortable when trekking to remote jungle villages in Central America or photographing the slums of Phnom Penh, Doug's intrepid curiosity has led him to travel extensively on assignment throughout Asia, Australia, Europe and Central America.
Bruce's portraits and travel photography have appeared in Another Magazine, Vanity Fair, W Magazine, The Times, Homme +, Korean Vogue, Dazed Digital, Glass, Harper's Bazaar Online, Tank and Sherman's Travel.

When not on assignment he can be found growing his own food and cooking it with his wife and daughter in their tiny kitchen.

As a kid, Russ Schleipman spent a good amount of time looking at his back yard through a viewfinder. He still does, but the back yard has no borders now, and he doesn’t always come home for dinner. His curiosity has pulled him to every corner of the planet. The images he brings home are the treasures he is most pleased to find.
With the eye of a designer, his images are bold and graphic, testimony to his acute sense of composition. Russ feels there is no middle ground: it’s right or it’s not. He strives to ease, delight and surprise the viewer’s eye, and to merit the highest of compliments, which is that an image is painterly.
His work has taken him to all the warm continents. Africa has seduced him on many occasions, as have China and France. The French Government Tourist Board is a favourite client. The cold continents are also high on his list.
Barcelona-based Italian photographer and professional traveller Sergio Cattivelli has been across all five continents, visiting hundreds of countries to capture the essence of people, places and landscapes. He fluently speaks five languages, a great help in getting him closer to the people and understanding their cultures.
Thanks to a passion for lighting and his fine-tuned powers of observation, Sergio creates a perfect balance that gives his compositions an evocative and suggestive three-dimensionality.
His work flows from romantic-idealistic landscapes bathed in magical and ancestral light to urban architecture that splits and reflects itself over and over again.
Sergio is available to travel for assignments worldwide.
Landscapes and locations become unexpectedly challanging when sketched from multifarious and exciting perspectives.
"Travel photography can be unusual, creative, and fun. When time becomes a multi-sensorial experience and colours play with dimensions and geometries, life is interpreted by movement and the results provide vivid communication. To feel a place, to be overrun with the colours of a landscape… this make the difference."
Thanks to the skills achieved by the Simephoto photographers through years of experience, the company's collection can be considered a true and rich starting point for creating effective meaning through images.
Simephoto is represented worldwide by the best stock photo agencies. Email for inquiries and more information.

The resulting photos are simple yet intense, full of dignity and beauty that clearly shows a respectful camera distance despite the closeness of the shot.
