Tobia Makover (M.F.A., photography, 1999) is a fine art photographer and mixed media artist whose work creates intrigue through timeless and emotive imagery. Each piece starts with a photograph, the soul of her work. Tobia then encompasses many layers of medium that she paints, carves, torches and then preserves in wax and resin through an encaustic process that dates back to the 1st Century, BCE. In all bodies of work and in life, Tobia contemplates the physicality of our existence. She questions the importance of our being and the impact of our time here while examining the tension between holding on and the desire to let go.
Internationally acclaimed, Tobia has exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, Les Ateliers de L’Image in St. Remy, France, PH-Neutro in Verona, Italy, the Griffin Museum in Boston, AIPAD in New York, and SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah. Her work is also included in the permanent collections of Savannah College of Art and Design and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. She received her MFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design and her BA in Sociology and Communications from the American University in Washington, D.C.. Tobia is a full-time artist who lives in Savannah, Georgia with her husband and two children.

Brenton Hamilton (M.F.A., photography, 1993) is a visual artist and historian of photography who lives and works on the coast of Maine. Hamilton, a master of the 1840’s cyanotype process chooses this antique medium to render his one of a kind dreamlike visions in an equally unique and intense hue, mirroring the ocean outside his studio window and a blue-black depths of the night sky in Maine. Hamilton is a faculty at the Maine Media workshops and the PC chair.
Michael Goesele is currently the Creative Director at Washingtonian Magazine, (B.F.A., photography, 2003), (B.F.A., graphic design, 2003). He is a former art director at Bonnier Corp, and the former deign director at Photo District News where he was in charge of art direction and creative management of the custom media department: PDN’s special projects division and in-house brands including PDN Gear Guide, PDNedu, PDN Photo Annual, PDN PhotoSource, PS100 and IPNstock.
Gary Hurewitz got his Masters in Psychology and soon after, came to the obvious realization, that the best profession to apply his skills of Abnormal behavior, was Advertising! He was hired by an up and coming photographer, Steve Steigman to be his representative. The advertising G-ds must have been looking down on Gary. Six months later, Steigman photographed the famous Maxell, “Man in the Chair” being blown away in front of his stereo. Gary was soon enlightened to how one fortunate break can catapult an artist to success. Steigman became one of the most celebrated commercial photographers in the industry and Gary was swept up in the success.
Bryan Gardner (B.F.A., photography, 2006) was born in Columbia, South Carolina, famous for its humid climate, college football and mustard style BBQ, it was in that muggy air that he found his life long passion for photography. After briefly studying in the mountains of North Carolina, Bryan moved to Savannah, Georgia to focus solely on Photography by attending the Savannah College of Art and Design. After graduating with honors and falling in love, Bryan and his now wife moved to New York City where he is currently the head photographer at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. He is quickly becoming a master of all things cute. When he is not shooting, he is hanging out in Brooklyn with his wife and shiba inu. Bryan shot the upcoming cookbook “Breakfast” which will be on book shelves in April and is available now on Amazon for preorder.
