Cocoa Rae (@bycocoarae)
My name is Cocoa Rae! I am a Rochester based visual artist and photographer who creates captivating portraits of unique and diverse people and captures their true essence. My style consists of vivid colors, Afrocentric shapes and vibes, as well as bold lighting techniques. My goal is to create a new style of photography that promotes body positivity and self love.
I am working on a year long portrait series called Pigment Series. It is a collection of mix media artwork that consists of semi nude photography and body painting. Each portrait captures the true essence of the subject.

Troy Schooneman (@troyschooneman)
Opulent, timeless, and emotionally evocative are just some of the adjectives used to describe the beautiful fine art photography of Australian artist Troy Schooneman.
His intense, often melancholy, yet highly romantic portraits of young men from ethnically diverse backgrounds are frequently mistaken for paintings rather than contemporary fine art photographs. Schooneman’s portraits, which are influenced by many of the master painters and sculptors of the Renaissance, possess a timeless quality and are exquisitely sensual; luminous with rich, saturated colors and infused with an almost surreal painterly quality.

I like simple lines and to disassemble engines.
I live in London, I'm from Italy, but I worked around the globe.
I cycle, bake sourdough bread, love pizzas and children books.
I was a tv writer, a video editor and now I'm a motion graphics designer who works in C4D, vray, After Effects and a bit of Houdini.
Thanks for stopping by!
