Top 5 Photographers – 2017

We’ve updated our list of the Top 5 photographers we think everyone should shoot with at least once. In an ever growing industry such as photography the talent pool is deep and it’s difficult to choose just 5. Hmmm… Maybe a top 10 list is in order. Again, this is just our opinion and have chosen those who do what we think is great work and have caught our attention lately. So let’s get started, in no particular order…


If you’re familiar with the photography industry no doubt you know the name LHGFX. They provide a unique blend of styles in Fitness, Fashion, Glam, Editorial, and Commercial ranges not typically found anywhere else. There are more than one photographers involved in LHGFX but we just couldn’t choose one and have to recommend LHGFX as whole.


Paul says on his website “To me, photography is all about that ‘captured moment’. I find this to be one of the most significant components of a spectacular image. I even prefer it at the expense of lighting and/or composition.” Rumour has it Paul is stepping away from fitness photography after 2017 so if you haven’t shot with him yet, do so now!


The first thing Brian Reilly says on his website is “I love making images. I get inspired when I collaborate with people to create something cool, something dynamic, sexy and truly unique. I am motivated by the thought of capturing images that evoke emotion.”
