Boston might be a small city, but it's brimming with creative talent. Cultivated here is a list of some of the best local photographers that you might not be aware of, for your perusal.

1. Ross Curry


Ross has expertly developed his skill, his brand, a following, and clients in a short amount of time. His recognizable style often focuses on natural light portraiture, but he also shines in the studio.

Everyone has different methods of shooting portraits especially when it comes to getting your subject in a certain pose. What works for me is instead of telling the person specific things to do with their body. Like move here, chin here, arms here, etc. I ask them to act out an emotion or feeling. This often gives them the freedom to move and pose as they naturally would. Sad, happy, bored, excited, and reflecting are great words to use when trying this. How do you pose models when you shoot?

2. Grace Madeline


Grace has proven herself to be a talented up-and-comer who did something few photographers do: establish a cohesive style early. Cold tones and a sense of melancholy pervade her images, and occasional doodles on top of them add an intriguing touch.

3. Can Ahtam


Founder of Boston's successful @portraitmeet, Can is a multi-talented photographer, marketer, and social media influencer. His photographs don't often follow a visual style, but instead tend tell to the story of himself as a photographer.

Yesterday the Greater Boston Area got slammed by thunderstorms and torrential rain during the evening commute, causing flash flooding and traffic jams in certain districts and towns nearby. According to the meteorologists the intense storm dropped two and a half inches of water in 30 minutes, and was expected to drop another inch before it was done. Today the city is expecting another hit by the storm and there are more flash flood predictions. Stay Dry and Stay Safe Boston! ๐Ÿค“โ˜”๏ธ / #discoveraround

4. Glen Washington


Also known as Siouxside or Korben Dallas (borrowed from Bruce Willis' character in The Fifth Element), Glen is a fixture in the New England rave circuit. He's been photographing (and performing at) shows for over 10 years, pioneering a gritty style with some typically gritty subjects.

5+6. Alex Iby & Munish Gandevia


Alex and Munish have developed in tandem, and together started Boston's only successful weekly photography meetup, #PhotoWalkWednesdays. Alex has an experimental style that focuses on dramatic color toning in post.ย Munish (AKA Munishot Photography, pronounced "money shot") has an enigmatic style but often returns to dark dubstep shows, using only ambient venue light.

Last nights photo walk was insanely awesome! Such a good squad and we had a great time sharing some words of wisdom over a drink at the local bar afterwards // Model: @drewcutting // #ibydesigns #Xelfies #PortraitGames #PortraitShoot #PortraitPage #Portrait_Vision #PortraitVision #PortraitMood #AOVportraits #PortraitInspiration #PortraitStream #PortraitFolk #Portrait_Society #LifePortraits #Portraits_MF #PortraitFestival #Conquer_Models #PortraitShared #MakePortrait #PortraitImagine #VisualAmbassadors #Featuremeofh #PursuitofPortraits #FolkPortraits #CollectivelyCreate #Majestic_People #MakingPortraits #Wanderfolk #photowalkwednesdays

This is my 100th post. It's crazy to see how far I've progressed since I decided to start photographing life/shows/people last September. I can't wait to see how far I can take this. Thanks for everyone who's supported me along the way. A dope shot from last Friday's show. #keepshooting

7. Conor Olmstead


Since moving to Boston a few years ago, Conor (AKA "Last Night Was Epic") has fast become a household name in nightlife photography. His photographic style is clean, immaculate, and energetic.

8. Chorale Miles


Another household name, no list of Boston Photographers would be complete without Chorale. Her spotlessly clean style, coupled with excellent light work and contrasting color tones, produce some of Boston's highest quality photos.

10. Andrew MacRobert


Full disclosure: that's me.

In my 3-year tenure as a photographer, I've always had a focus on expression and liveliness. I believe photos should make you feel an instant reaction, and the most sure-fire way to do that is with human expression.

Happy Monday! Jump into the new week! #5DMarkIV #85mm #ef2017 #electricforest #kindneighbors
