What we're about

On Assignment - Our expression for being on the job, working to a specific creative task, editor request or client gig.

Craig's assignments include studio & location fashion, underwater glamour, environmental portraits, architecture and all subjects of the global travel experience.

All brands of cameras & lighting are welcome, and as one of Nikon's Ambassadors, there will be special access to Nikon gear, accessories, and sometime even newly released items not available elsewhere yet ;)
