A visual artist who hails from Hawaii, Christy Lee Rogers’ aesthetic is often compared with that of Renaissance and Baroque painters. A signature Christy Lee Rogers photograph features a group of female models floating just underneath the surface of water, clothed in flowing dresses or wrapped in fabrics and looking like they’re floating in a dreamlike world. 

Since coming to international prominence in 2010 with her Siren collection, Christy went on to win the Open Photographer of the Year prize at the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards and during her career has created commissioned work for global brands Apple and Lavazza.

Niall is the editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and has been shooting on interchangeable lens cameras for over 20 years, and on various point-and-shoot models for years before that. 

Working alongside professional photographers for many years as a jobbing journalist gave Niall the curiosity to also start working on the other side of the lens. These days his favored shooting subjects include wildlife, travel and street photography, and he also enjoys dabbling with studio still life. 

On the site you will see him writing photographer profiles, asking questions for Q&As and interviews, reporting on the latest and most noteworthy photography competitions, and sharing his knowledge on website building.
