Pietro Baroni

PhotoShelter template: Promenade
Location: Milan, Italy
Specialty and background: With a degree in Natural Sciences, I went to study lions in Tanzania and spent five years as a geological and naturalistic guide in Iceland and Morocco. After these experiences I started to develop my other deep passion—the one for photography. I’ve always been a careful observer of people, and I decided to use photography as my personal medium to support all these studies with a more artistic and passionate approach.

I have collaborated with magazines like Panorama Travel, Bell’Europa, Bell’Italia and Marie Claire, and in 2012 I won a prize at the International Photography Awards (IPA) with the project Milan Closets. In 2013 I exhibited at “Palazzo delle Stelline” in Milan in the group show “Lost in Chaos”. I am a Leica Camera Ambassador.

What projects are you working on?
I am currently working on two different artistic conceptual projects characterized by social and philosophical implications: one dedicated to fatherhood and one against the machismo. I am using photography, video, installations and mixed media.

Erin Siegal

PhotoShelter template: Horizon
Location: Tijuana, Mexico
Specialty and background: I’ve been a contributing photographer with Redux Pictures in New York since 2007, but my career as a straight photographer sort of ended around the same time I signed on with Redux. I’ve always been a writer, and I wanted to pursue both passions.

In 2012, Beacon Press published my book Finding Fernanda (Beacon Press 2012), a nonfiction work of deep-dive investigative reporting that sparked the hour-long CBS special investigation “Perilous Journey” that won a 2015 News Emmy. The Overseas Press Club of America honored Finding Fernanda with a Robert Spiers Benjamin Award citation for best reporting in any medium on Latin America. My writing and photographs have appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic, the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Playboy, and more. I also recently did a stint as an on-camera investigative reporter/producer for Univision Documentales.

My photo career began while I was still an art school student. I worked as an intern and then studio manager for James Nachtwey, and also as an assistant to Susan Meiselas. I studied photography at Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts, and earned a Masters degree in Journalism from Columbia University, as a 2008-2009 Fellow at the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism.

Right now, I’m a Senior Fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism. I love freelancing, and the freedom to work across platforms, in different mediums. I also love to collaborate!

Juergen Hoffmann

PhotoShelter template: Horizon
Location: Berlin, Germany
Specialty and background: I’ve been working as a commercial and fashion photographer based in Berlin since 1999. In the last few years I’ve traveled to Los Angeles, New York, Milano, London, Maldives, Malaysia as well as many other places. I also do architecture and still life photography, and in 2016 I founded EASTFAB, an agency for photographers where we offer the complete production package.

What projects are you working on?
I just finished a project for the new ebay TV commercial, and I am now in preparation for a three day shooting for a large shoe company. This will start next week and will take place here in Berlin. The shooting is the complete catalogue for the autumn/winter collection. Directly after that we have a campaign shooting for an international healthcare company.
